BYE WEEK-  Dallas, Oakland, St. Louis, Tampa Bay

 

 

TNF- Falcons 5-0 @ New Orleans 1-4                            Winner- Falcons

 

Atlanta is the first team in NFL history to start 5-0 despite trailing in the fourth quarter in four of those contests. The saints finally got themselves a win, but I don't see them beating the Falcons, they have a timely Defense now, a freak in Freeman and a solid team all around. Outside of Snead their really isn't any threats on the Saints and their Secondary is lacking. 

 

Bengals 5-0 @ Bills 3-2                                                   Winner- Bengals

 

Looks like Tyrod Taylor could miss a few weeks, and EJ will start for the Bills. With McCoy out, Karlos Williams has been a real solid back for them, hopefully he plays this week and Watkins could be back as well. Even so, I don't see them beating the Bengals, the Bengals are Top 10 in every offensive category and a solid defense. With Buffalo potentially missing all their key pieces I can see this as a double digit win for the Bengals. 

 

Broncos 5-0 @ Browns 2-3                                            Winner- Broncos

 

Cleveland needs McCown to play, period. He has been one of the top QB's in recent weeks and gives them the best shot at .500. Even so, Peyton isn't the same, that's obvious, but their D is carrying them and I cant see them losing this game. This should be closer then most will expect but Denver will pull it off...again.

 

Bears 2-3 @ Lions 0-5                                                   Winner- Bears

 

Okay, Both teams suck. But Detroit is beyond horrible, all that talent wasted and it goes all the way up to the owners. Cutler has brought his team from behind, two weeks in a row with no receivers, to two straight victories. The right staff in place, everyone healthy and this team could be something. Even with this being a division game, the Bears should win by a score of two or more.

 

Texans 1-4 @ Jaguars 1-4                                            Winner- Texans

 

I almost chose the Jaguars, with Bell 2.0 in Yeldon. They have the pieces, slowly, they are getting there, but not within the next 2 years I say. Watt is frustrated, this should be a game he unleashes and gets confidence from.  This QB controversy is getting annoying, they chose Hoyer and benched him in Game 1 and never went back, realizing Mallet isn't a starting caliber QB their giving Hoyer another shot. Hopkins is been on fire, Foster is struggling. This team is a mess but they should win, it'll be dam close though.

 

Chiefs 1-4 @ Vikings 2-2                                                   Winner- Vikings

 

​Chiefs have taken a major step back and now they lost Charles for the year. On a positive note, a receiver has a TD this year!  The O-Line is garbage and outside of Maclin they have no legit options with Charles out and the Defense is having a hard time as well. Vikings are coming off a bye and Bridgwater should be looking to step up, this should be a quiet game but the VIkings will prevail.

 

Redskins 2-3 @ Jets 3-1                                                   Winner- Jets

 

Jets are coming fresh off a bye and the redskins are coming off a heartbreaking OT defeat.  My gut say upset for the Redskins but Im going with the Defense here plain and simple.

 

Cardinals 4-1 @ Steelers 3-2                                      Winner- Cardinals

 

Vick had one good drive, and it won them the game, outside of that he doesn't know the offense, and Brown isn't the #1 WR in the league with Vick. Relying on timely defensive plays and Bell too win games so that Vick doesn't out them out of the race before Big Ben comes back. This Cardinals team is, wow. a historic offense so far with points, a great defense, top 5 offense, a revitalized Chris Johnson, and a healthy Palmer. I see a 20-30 point game in favor of Arizona.

 

Dolphins 1-3 @ Titans 1-3                             Winner- Dolphins

 

The Dolphins have struggled, in all areas, but a new coach, a fresh team, I see them winning this game but 10+ points, now Mariota does look great dont get me wrong, but Miami has the talent. And I need a big game by RM in my FFL.

 

Panthers 4-0 @ Seahawks 2-3                                  Winner- Panthers... Dam.

 

Luke should be back for this game, a depleted offense but a mature Newton has gotten it done, and they have that top Defense as well. two top 5 rushing teams going at it. Their will be blood, the Seahawks are underachieving a bit and angry, but I have a feeling the Panthers will win a tight game, bye a field goal i would say.

 

Chargers 2-3 @ Packers 5-0                                  Winner - Packers        

 

Keenan Allen is playing great, but the Chargers dont have the proper scheme for Gordon yet to be fully unleashed, his time will come but it isn't this year. Rivers is playing great, but the Defense just lacks slightly. James Jones is back in Green and doing great things, I don't see The Pack being held down by the Chargers, Packers will outscore them by a wide margin.

 

 

Patriots 4-0 @ Colts 3-2                              Winner- Pats

 

Not sure how the Colts are 3-2, they will still win that division fairly easily. The Pats are playing to piss the league off  and I don't see them slowing down yet.  But this shouldnt be a hard game for Brady, I think this game is a shootout with the Pats clearly ahead.

 

 

Ravens 1-4 @ Niners 1-4                                      Winner- Niners  

 

Don't  get me started my team, they suck. But i think they'll continue off the offensive momentum they had going last week and pull out a close win. I'm not impressed with either team but the Ravens just look out of it, they've fallen to far behind in the division IMO and mentally they don't look like they will turn it around any time soon..

 

 

MNF - Giants 3-2 @ Eagles 2-3                                     Winner- Eagles

 

Pains me to pick the Eagles but without Cruz and possibly Randle i don't  think they have enough fire power to win. The Eagles have look like utter garbage, Ryan Matthews look better then Murray, they have no O-line, bad coaching, all around a under achieving team that i knew was coming before the season started. But the division is still very winnable... I think the Eagles will turn it around at around Weeks 8 @ 9 but will it be too late then? Who knows... But for now the Eagles look good against this Giants team.

"For a guy you go up in the draft to take as your No. 1 receiver? Those 15 targets that Julio [Jones] gets. Those 20 targets that Odell [beckham Jr.] gets. Of course I'd have 100 yards every game and a TD, if I'm getting 20 targets! Everybody looks at you getting zero catches, zero yards, but when you look on film, 90 percent of the time I'm open. That's what I get mad at: when I don't get looked at. I can look at film, and his eyes go straight that way and I'm not getting looked at.. at all. That's when I get frustrated. When I have one-on-one coverage, go to me. I don't care what's going on over there. I don't care if he's open. When I get one-on-one, just target me! I need the ball at least 10 times a game. I need 10 targets, and l'll be fine with however many yards I get. And that's what I addressed in talking with my agent. We reached out to a couple people and tried to pull some string like, 'Hey, I need my targets. You came up to draft me and I'm not getting targets -- that's a problem! You're making me look bad, and you're making yourself look bad." --Sammy Watkins.

Diva receiver complaining about not getting the ball? Discontent in Rex's locker room?

 

God knows, I'm not trying to defend Watkins here.. but Rex's obsession with the Jets inadvertently hurt Sammy.

The Bills were already extremely deep @ WR heading into this season. They didn't need to sign Percy Harvin.. but as soon as rumors began to trickle that Harvin was interested in resigning with the Jets (even after we acquired Marshall) Rex bullied his way into convincing Buffalo that the Bills needed him. The result(s) have been poor. Harvin has been targeted over 30 times already, and has a little over 200 yrds heading into the 6th game of the season. He has as many TD's as Sammy(who's been targeted only 12 times) and Harvin has played 2 more games than Watkins to boot! This is an instance where --although Sammy is acting like a d!ck-- he has somewhat of a point. The Bills are forcing the ball to Percy over Watkins to make the Harvin signing more justifiable.. but the fact remains; The Bills didn't need to sign Harvin in the first place.

Lot of good games today. Chargers just suck. They outgained the Packers and outplayed them. But terrible play calls at the end. Rivers goes for 470 and it doesn't matter. Seahawks choke again. Pete Carroll strikes again. More conservative play calls. He relies on the D too much. They got schooled by Cam. Great win for the Panthers. Way to prove me wrong. And Jericho Cotchery with a sick catch for a first down. 

 

Jets romp over the Deadskins. The Marshall addition was huge for their offense bc it took pressure off Decker and allows him to be a 2nd WR and he's more open. Ivory is a good back. And of course the Jets bringing back Revis has helped tremendously. 

 

Giants are at the Eagles tomorrow. Tough match-up due to Philly's talented backs. Plus ODB is questionable. And Randle too. I'd be shocked if they won.

I didn't have much interest in the other games yesterday for obvious reasons but WTF were the Colts doing with that Pop Warner-ass formation in the third quarter?  Would they even do that in Pop Warner?  They probably got caught up in trying to show how smart they are against the Pats since the Pats pull barely legal formations and then tell everyone to read the rulebook.  Difference is what the Pats do actually WORKS :P

If the Three Stooges ever played football, it probably looked similar to what the Giants are doing today.

 

28th ranked defense in the league, giving up 400 yrds (average) every single game..

..one thing I'll about the Giants DC's; the transition from Fewell to Spagnuolo has been seamless.

Can't say I'm not a little jealous though. NFC east will probably have a 9-7 (maybe even 8-8) division champion hosting a home playoff game while we can be 11-5 and a Wild Card opening up on the road (and that's quite possible as 7-4 the rest of the way gets us there)

 

Colts lead the AFC South...3-3.

 

When the hell can we cruise in a division like that?
