- Philip Rivers is the hottest quarterback in the NFL…His big play abilities have made the Bolts dangerous every time they have the ball…Rivers (15TD-2Int-69%-1756Y-117R)…
Offense 82-plays of plus-10Y in 6-games this season…San Diego converting 53%-3rd downs-third best in league…Chargers time of possession (34:34)-2nd best in league…Chiefs (2-3) but have played tougher schedule beating Patriots, losing by 5-San Francisco, 7-Denver…QB-Alex Smith (109R-63%)…Chiefs RBs-Jamal Charles-Knile Davis (522R-4.5YPC)-Smith added (109R)….
- KC very balanced offense..thrown 158-run 147X….KC defense has 15QBX…strong edge rushers in Tamba Hali and Justin Huston….Biggest question…can San Diego go after banged up KC secondary and score early….can Bolts OL protect Rivers from pass rush….Does KC try to play ‘Power Ball’ with their two big backs and control clock, shorten game, and keep Rivers off the field….Andy Reid (15-2) coming off bye weeks as a head coach….San Diego too many weapons…Chiefs won’t be able to play small ball and shorten the game.
- Great QB matchup…Cincinnati’s Andy Dalton-vs-Colts Andrew Luck. Luck has thrown 17TD passes this season.
- Huge matchup…Peyton Manning15TDs already…Colin Kaeperneck getting hot at QB…Broncos cannot afford to pick up 2nd loss this early-especially if Chargers win.
- Eli Manning and new-look offense has 11TD passes already-but have lost WR-Victor Cruz…Cowboys after their 6th win in a row…RB-DeMarco Murray (795R)
- Cam Newton goes on road for 2nd weekend in a row coming off great combo effort last week (391APY)…Aaron Rogers 15TD passes for Green Bay.
- Both teams are (2-3)…neither team has been very consistent around their QBs.
- Return of RB-Ben Tate-growth of rookie RB-Ike Crowell has made QB-Brian Hoyer more dangerous…Blake Bortels struggling now (14 Quarters-9 Tovers-11QBX).
- Unrest in Atlanta camp-owner Arthur Blank says team should not be (2-4)…Mike Smith on thin ice as coach..Joe Flacco throwing haymaker TD passes.
- QB-Ted Bridgewater turning the ball over-rookie learning on job…Kyle Orton has made Bills consistent at QB…Buffalo defense really rolling.
- Miami loses Knoshon Moreno-now no running game…QB-Jay Cutler coming off big games throwing the ball.
- Question whether Jake Locker will ever be anything than a hurt QB….Might be Kirk Cousins last start because of all his turnovers..Washington (1-5).
- Seattle needs to get back to running the ‘beast’-Marshawn Lynch more…Russell Wilson passing numbers off…Rams QB-Austin Davis playing gunslinger role-moving the ball.
- Everyone has an opinion in Pittsburgh about their problems…the coordinator…the QB playcalls…lack of toughness on defense…Texans could post a win with RB-Arian Foster healthy.
- Derek Carr growing as young QB…faces real challenge though in Cardinals very good secondary.
