What, where, when, why, how……..football is absolutely insane! This season the AFC West is best described as Yin and Yang. Let’s go……….
Sean Payton said that Jets Offensive Coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and his staff for the 2022 Broncos did “one of the worst coaching jobs in the history of the NFL”. Fast forward to Sunday, the Broncos had a halftime lead and looked like they were going to run away with this one. Then the second half started with 4 three and outs. Even when it went right it went wrong. On one of the punts the Jets fumbled it and lost it to the Broncos only for them to fumble it right back two plays later. After surrendering 234 yard on the ground, it is starting to feel like the Broncos are the worse team in the AFC.
The Chiefs pulled out the win but they did it with the help of the officials. The Viking were driving and there was a clear case of PI and there was no call. There was a pass on 4th down and there was a clear PI and again, no flag but lets take it to another level. The defender took his helmet off, which by rule, is a clear Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalty. Instead of the flag being thrown, the official told him to put his helmet back on, WTF!!! The Chiefs won but really the officials committed grand theft against the Vikings.
Grade: B- (Officials: A)
Josh McDaniels is suppose to be an offensive mastermind, how in the hell does Devante Adams only get 4 balls thrown his way. Even when he is covered, he is open, that is why he is one of the best receivers in the NFL. 5 games into the season and they have scored under 20 points and some how they have won 2 games. This game saw the defense win it for the Raiders with 3 interceptions and Madd Maxx going nuts with a sack and 4 tackles for loss.
Grade: B (Josh McDaniels: F)
Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs
This game could turn into the Massacre at Arrowhead.
Chiefs 34 Broncos 17
Spread: -10.5 Chiefs
New England Patriots at Las Vegas Raiders
This is the make or break game for both teams.
Raiders 24 Patriots 17
Spread: -3 Raiders
Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Chargers
This one will be about which team defense will show up.
Chargers 27 Cowboys 24
Spread: -2.5 Cowboys
This season has seen so many things happen so far, so many ups and downs but if this continues, every fan in the AFC West is going to end up going cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. Wait….we already are. Nevermind.
