“NFL WEEKEND-STUNNING SUNDAY”
Somebody has some explaining to do, after an upside down weekend around the NFL.
A quick look at NFL storylines:
CHARGERS…Thank goodness the hapless Bears were on the schedule at this point. Justin Herbert was dazzling early, hitting 15-passes in a row while the Bears were pretty poor from start to finish. The Bolts won (30-13). It was a vintage Austin Eckler outing, (119) all purpose yards. Herbert finished with (298) passing. It was a coming out party for two backups, TE-Donald Parham and #1 pick Quinton Johnston combined to catch (9R-93Y). It counts as one win and the Bolts head to New York to play the Jets.
DENVER-CHIEFS…Looking for an explanation on this one. The Chiefs turned it over 5-times. Patrick Mahomes looked ordinary. Russell Wilson looks old, but did throw for 3-TDs because the Chiefs turned it over and gave them a short field. Kansas City did not look like Kansas City and that is strange.
DALLAS-RAMS…Terrible beat down and now Matthew Stafford has a thumb injury. Dak Prescott is rolling with a (304Y) passing day. Cee Dee Lamb had his second big boy game in a row (12R-158Y). The Cowboys pass rush looks elite. The Rams look spent
BENGALS-49ers…No one could predict 3-losses in a row, but the 49ers have skidded to their bye week with that. Joe Burrow (28-32) 283Y-3TD looked like the Joe Burrow of old. J’Marr Chase had a 10-catch-100 yard day. Brock Purdy does not look like he did in the past, with 2-picks on 2-passes in a row, then a fumble after that. The fact this happened infront of their home fans was a shocker too.
EAGLES-WASHINGTON…No one saw this (38-31) shootout coming. Jalen Hurts throws 4-more TDs in his 319-yard day. How about Sam Howell’s (397Y-4TD) passing day against a Super Bowl type Philly defense.
MIAMI-PATRIOTS…Tua keeps doing it, this time a (324Y-3TD) blowout win against the Bill Belichick defense. The Pats are (2-6)
STEELERS-JAGUARS…Jacksvonville plays really hard and seems to have an offense without alot of name recognized stars. The Steelers went 21-minutes without a first down and QB-Ken Pickett is now hurt.
VIKINGS..Coming back from a bad start,now a bad ending, with Kirk Cousins possible season ending torn Achilles injury. A devastating blow.
SAINTS…They put up (511Y) in offense, Derek Carr had a bounceback 300-yard passing game, but the Saints don’t look dominant. They could have lost to the Colts.
JETS-GIANTS…Somebody said they should have televised this game in black and white grainy TV, it was so bad. Jets won. The Giants lost its QB-Tyrod Taylor who went to the hospital with rib issues. So bad the Giants had 7-yards passing in the game, not being able to throw the ball, having to give it all the time to Saquon Barkley.
HOUSTON-CAROLINA..Battle of last year’s lst round draft pick, and Bryce Young was a bit better than CJ Stroud, so the Panthers won their first game of the year, nipping the Texans.
A strange weekend for sure. Looking for explanations of how this could happen.
