The New York media had cooled with the “Should the Giants have drafted a quarterback” narrative for a week, but that storyline is beginning to crop up again after another dismal effort from Eli Manning and the Giants offense.
Eagles fans must’ve been stunned watching them get beat by their own game.
We love watching Todd Gurley run. His vision is impeccable.
John Brown was a spectacular pickup by Ozzie Newsome and the Ravens. He’s been the perfect deep threat for that offense.
Sam Darnold didn’t turn the ball over against the Jaguars vaunted defense. Call that progress for the rookie quarterback.
The Browns very easily could be 4-0. They probably should be, actually.
What happened to the Falcons defense this year? Only three teams are giving up more points per game than Atlanta this season. Isn’t Dan Quinn a defensive-minded coach, too?
It’s safe to say "Fitzmagic" is over in Tampa Bay.
The Dolphins haven’t won in New England since 2008, and they aren’t taking over the AFC East until they can find a way to leave Foxborough with a W.
Josh Allen isn’t going to go undefeated in his career.
The Broncos will need to have a short memory in a short week after blowing a 10-point lead with 6:30 to go against the Chiefs. Denver had a 72 percent win probability, per Number Fire, after forcing Kansas City into second and 30 with 3:07 to play. If Denver plays zone instead of man-to-man coverage on that down, Patrick Mahomes probably doesn't get the opportunity to convert his left-handed play. Bad job by Vance Joseph and the Broncos coaching staff, in a very winnable game.
This isn’t a league of moral victories, but even playing with a backup quarterback, the 49ers were a live underdog against the Chargers in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Game of the week: Jaguars at Chiefs. A possible AFC championship game preview?
Sleeper game of the week: Dolphins at Bengals. Barring a tie, one of these surprise clubs will be 4-1.
