This NFL season is turning into the what the NBA off-season normally is, in terms of player movement and storylines. It’s fun, it keeps us on our toes, and we never know what’s coming next.
Arizona Cardinals (3-4)
DeAndre Hopkins made his season debut and immediately caught 10 passes for 103 yards.
Atlanta Falcons (3-4)
The Falcons allowed Joe Burrow to throw for 481 yards. Ruh roh.
Buffalo Bills (5-1)
The Bills unveiled images for their new $1.4B stadium which is set to open in 2026. It doesn’t have a roof, which seems like a mistake, especially if they ever wanted to host a Super Bowl.
Baltimore Ravens (4-3)
A win against the Buccaneers on Thursday would give the Ravens room to breathe and get healthy.
Carolina Panthers (2-5)
They trade away Christian McCaffrey and then beat the Buccaneers? I don’t understand sports, sometimes.
Cincinatti Bengals (4-3)
Tee Higgins was 7 yards away from giving the Bengals three 100+ yard receivers on Sunday.
Cleveland Browns (2-5)
The Kareem Hunt trade watch is on.
Chicago Bears (3-4)
I said last week that I was afraid they might get shut out by the Patriots in Foxborough. Well, they scored 33 points and won the game. Justin Fields could not be stopped.
Dallas Cowboys (5-2)
Dak Prescott returning against the Lions was a nice way to ease him back in.
Denver Broncos (2-5)
Russell Wilson says he spent four of the eight hour plane ride to London, working out and stretching. He evens claims to have done high knees in the aisle while his teammates slept. Hey, didn’t I say a few weeks ago before the first London game, that players would probably stretch on the plane?
Detroit Lions (1-5)
D’Andre Swift appears to be back this week, which is a huge boost for the offence.
Green Bay Packers (3-4)
Three straight losses to the Giants, Jets, and Commanders, before a Sunday night game in Buffalo? The Packers are in something more severe than just “trouble”.
Houston Texans (1-4-1)
The Brandin Cooks trade watch is on.
Indianapolis Colts (3-3-1)
Sam Ehlinger has been named the starting quarterback for the rest of the season.
Jacksonville Jaguars (2-5)
They traded James Robinson to the Jets, which means the backfield has officially been handed over to Travis Etienne.
Kansas City Chiefs (5-2)
The Chiefs acquired Kadarius Toney from the Giants today, which is like giving a child more candy on Halloween. Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes know how to get the best out of receivers like Toney.
Las Vegas Raiders (2-4)
I think the Raiders have three very winnable games coming up against the Saints, Jaguars, and Colts. I’m not counting them out just yet.
Los Angeles Chargers (4-3)
Injuries may be their demise, with J.C. Jackson out for the season, and Mike Williams out for at least a month.
Los Angeles Rams (3-3)
The Rams are coming off the Bye with a big matchup against the 49ers. We’ll see if they’re a different team than they were in the first six weeks of the season.
Miami Dolphins (4-3)
Tua is back and so are the wins. Almost like there’s a correlation, or something.
Minnesota Vikings (5-1)
I promise, next week I’ll have something better than “no one is talking about the Vikings.”
New England Patriots (3-4)
The Patriots got embarrassed by the Bears on Monday night. I don’t expect to see that twice in a row. The Jets better be ready.
New Orleans Saints (2-5)
Jameis Winston is healthy and the Saints are still rolling out Andy Dalton as their starter. Winston was sacked 11 times in three games, while Dalton has only been sacked 4 times in four games.
New York Giants (6-1)
A part of me is worried about the Giants travelling west to Seattle this week, but another part of me is saying they’ll be just fine. We’ll find out on Sunday, I guess.
New York Jets (5-2)
Let’s see what the Jets offence looks like post-Breece Hall.
Philadelphia Eagles (6-0)
If you, or someone you know, would like to tell me when the Eagles will lose their first game, I’d love to know. They have an upcoming stretch against a bunch of underachieving teams.
Pittsburgh Steelers (2-5)
The Chase Claypool trade watch is on.
San Francisco 49ers (3-4)
“We got too many people who can change the game, to score 23 points.” – Brandon Aiyuk
Seattle Seahawks (4-3)
It still doesn’t feel real that the Seahawks have four wins but, hey, good for them.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-4)
Someone needs to shake the entire organization and yell, “Snap out of it!” before it’s too late.
Tennessee Titans (4-2)
The Titans are right there with the Vikings in the “no one is talking about us” category. They’ll sneak up on teams.
Washington Commanders (3-4)
The Commanders have a chance to win their third game in a row. I don’t hate their chances against the Colts.
