Pro Football Notebook-Preview of NFL Games

Posted by on October 15th, 2015  •  0 Comments  • 

Chargers-Packers…Aaron Rodgers hardly ever loses at Lambeau Field…Philip Rivers does not have very much help upfront or from his defense….Packers not good against the run…but San Diego not good blocking for the run nor protecting the quarterback…San Diego defense disaster also….This has blowout in the making.

Chiefs-Vikings…An awful season gets worse for Kansas City with loss of RB-Jamal Charles and DT-Dontari Poe…Hard to believe KC in last place.

Dolphins-Titans…Debut of interim coach Dan Campbell…bigger question how many teammates still believe in QB-Ryan Tannehill after last week’s antics in practice…Titans playing well around rookie QB-Marcus Mariota-just not enough offensive weapons though.

Cardinals-Steelers…Ben Roethlisberger wants to play-they could win if he does…Doubt they will if Michael Vick is the starter…Arizona really rolling with Carson Palmer, group of receivers, and street free agent Chris Johnson coming off back-to-back 100-yard games.

Bengals-Bills…Is there an ambush waiting when Andy Dalton and his offense meet Rex Ryan’s amped up defense….Bills will have to start EJ Manuel at QB with Tyrod Taylor injury.

Bears -Lions…Jay Cutler is back but you feel uncomfortable with him week-to-week…Lions in complete chaos with QB-Matthew Stafford starting to resemble Jeff George.

Broncos-Browns…Josh McCown has put up amazing passing stats the last two weeks, but this is Wade Philips and that Wild Horse defense pass rush….Browns could be in it if defense can contain a not-so-explosive Peyton Manning.

Texans-Jaguars….Houston has JJ Watt…Jaguars have gutsy QB-Blake Bortels, and that is all there is to talk about.  Bad game with two bad teams.

Panthers-Seahawks…Seattle defense starting to roll….Panthers are rolling with Cam Newton and a pretty good Panthers defense.

Ravens-San Francisco….Joe Flacco cannot do it by himself in Baltimore…Team is playing poorly…Colin Kaeperneck is definitely not getting it done by himself….Two organizations that have fouled up their rosters.

Patriots-Colts…Tom Brady-vs-Andrew Luck….We know who New England is, how tough they play on defense…we really don’t know who the Colts really are-especially on defense.

Giants-Eagles…Tom Coughlin has rallied New York to a bunch of wins with a patch work lineup…Chip Kelly is trying to rally Philadelphia’s offense…really interesting matchup of Eli Manning-vs-Sam Bradford.

Redskins-Jets…New York defense continues to carry team….Ryan Fitzpatrick managing games well for New York….Kirk Cousins losing games with week-by-week turnouvers-wasting good Washington defense.

Falcons-Saints…Atlanta sizzling on offense thanks to rookie RB-Devonta Freeman and QB-Matt Ryan…some coaching job by Dan Quinn…..Drew Brees looking at terribly sad season…Organziation has let team fall apart…you wonder if Sean Payton survives all this.
