NFL Week 4 in Review

I guess I will start with the fact that everything is right in the world again, the Bills go back to being horrible, the Browns lose again (although it was one of the best games to watch), and the Dolphins lost to the Patriots like they usually do. First game I am going to talk about is Texans vs. Colts, the Texans slipped away with a victory in OT over the Colts, Deshaun Watson looked like he did prior to his season ending ACL tear in 2017 when he was poised to have a record breaking rookie season, Watson threw for 375 yards and 2 touchdowns, while rushing for 41 yards and another touchdown. Watson looked good and he showed he has a strong rapport with wide receiver Deandre Hopkins who caught 10 passes for 169 yards and a touchdown, if the Texans keep to this level of offense they will be a touch match-up in the weeks to come. Andrew Luck was no slouch in this game either, he threw for 464 yards and 4 touchdowns, however the Colts had to rely heavily on the passing game since their number one running back Marlon Mack was out of the game. Expect to see a huge performance from the Colts in future games if they get their running game back to normal. Now, onto the Bears vs Tampa Bay, this game was an atrocity and I am pretty sure Mitch Trubisky broke a couple of the Geneva Conventions laws when he murdered Tampa Bay on live television. Mitch Trubisky looked like a top QB in the league yesterday when he used just about every single member of the team to throw a touchdown pass to. Tampa Bay on the other hand needs to just find a new QB because fitztragic and Jameis Winston combined could barely get points on the board. Moving on to the Cowboys vs Lions, Dak Prescott threw for over 200 yards, FINALLY. The Cowboys have a serious issue with lack of serious talent at wide receiver, Dak Prescott is not a bad QB, but without any weapons to throw to, you’re going to have an inefficient passing game. I feel like the Lions always do this, they have like 6 – 8 losses every season that are nail biters, but they just end up messing up time management in the fourth quarter and end up with the loss. The Patriots Vs. Dolphins games, Jaguars Vs. Jets games, and Green Bay Vs. Buffalo games all really spoke for themselves, the Jets and Buffalo look inefficient as ever in their Sunday night losses, where the rookie QB just cant get the job done, granted they both faced powerhouse teams, the Jets playing against one of the best defenses in the NFL with the Jaguars, and the Bills playing against veteran QB Aaron Rodgers. Both the Jets and the Bills need some serious work on their offense if they want to be contenders for the playoffs this year. The Patriots just obliterated the Dolphins, but I don’t want to look too much into this one seeing as this always happens, the Dolphins almost always will have this 3 or 4 game period where they look phenomenal and then they just fall apart, and expect the Patriots to be a threat to any team they play in the league starting this Thursday when Julian Edelman returns to the roster fresh off of his roids. I lost money on the next game Falcons Vs the Bengals, what a let down, I really thought I was going to cover on this one, then Andy Dalton and his merry band of douchebag receivers had to drive down the field at the last second to avenge Tyler Eiferts broken glass ankle. Both teams looked good however, and I will be betting on the over if they play again. For the last 1 o’clock game, Eagles Vs Titans , I am going to level with you, I straight up didn’t even watch this game because I am still sour over the Superbowl, and I thought the Titans were going to get smoked, I am elated to say however, that the Titans won, and I still hate the Eagles. For the 4 o’clock games, the best of which was the Browns vs the Raiders, where Baker Mayfield looked… okay. Yes, the Browns put 42 points on the board and lost in OT, but Baker Mayfield turned over the ball 4 times, 2 of which were in the redzone, showing that he still has a lot of room to improve. The Raiders had their first win of the season, but it was against the Browns so its essentially irrelevant. The only thing I am going to say about the 49ers vs the Chargers game is that the 49ers should probably buy a vending machine that spits out QBs because they’re running out of options. Next 2 games I won some money on, so I was a bit more interested in them. the Seahawks Vs. the Cardinals, the only reason this game was interesting was because I had money on it. Josh Rosen looked run of the mill, he did have a few passes that really impressed me, but in the end he couldn’t get the win for the Cardinals who stay at an abysmal 0-4 going into week 5 (Josh Rosens new nickname is the Hebrew Shammer I will only refer to him as that moving forward). Last of the 4 o’clock games was the Saints vs the Giants, the Saints did what the always do, beat teams that are worse then them. The Saints ran over the Giants (literally, Kamara had 136 yards and 3 touchdowns, and was in my fantasy lineup which is probably why he did so well) the Giants need to find a way to stop the run or they’re going to have a very long season in front of them. Also, I have little to no faith in Eli Manning, I think hes a garbage person and will always live in his brothers shadow. Lastly, we will talk about the prime time game, Steelers Vs. the Raiders, aren’t the Steelers supposed to be good? Although James Conner and Ryan Switzer together are performing as well as one could hope, they just don’t provide the explosive play power that Bell brought to the Steelers offense, and it is very clear that his presence is missed. The Ravens looked a lot better than I thought they would, with John Brown providing deep threat play ability I didn’t think he possessed.  So im 3-2 on my bets going into Monday night football, expect it to be 4-2 when the Chiefs humiliate the Broncos tonight. Let me know your thoughts in the comments, and I have been thinking of starting a weekly podcast, let me know if you would like to see that happen!
