Boy, what a crazy week. From the bottom of the ocean to the top of the mountain, this division has seen just about everything. As soon as you think one team is taking off, they faulter and vice versa. This thing is turning into a flat out dog fight and I love it.
Let’s rock and roll.
After being down 3 at halftime, the Chiefs came out and scored 21 unanswered points in the second half to blowout the WFT. Patrick Mahomes was 32 of 47 (68.1%) for 397 yards and 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions with 3 carries for 31 yards. Darrell Williams had 21 carries for 62 yards and 2 touchdowns with 3 receptions for 27 yards. Tyreek Hill had 9 receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown. The defense had 3 tackles for loss with a interception and a fumble recovery. Harrison Butker was 1 for 1 on fieldgoals and 4 for 4 on extra points. Though they came out slow and turned the ball over three times, they finished this game like a freight train.
This was bar none the worse game of the season so far for the Chargers. They were flat out mauled by the Ravens in every aspect of the game. Justin Herbert was 22 of 39 (56.9%) for 195 yards with a touchdown and a interception. He was also the leading rusher for the team with 2 carries for 12 yards (Yep, you read that right). Keenan Allen had 5 receptions for 50 yards. The defense had 3 sacks and 5 tackles for loss with 2 interceptions. Tristan Vizcaino was 0 for 1 on extra points (Kicking game still SUCKS). Overall, this was the epitome of failure.
The Broncos started the season 3-0 playing teams that had a combined record of 0-6. After that, they are 0-3 against teams that have won a game. On Sunday the o-line and defense were flat out horrible and tried to get Bridgewater killed. He was 35 of 49 (71.4%) for 334 yards and 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions with 2 carries for 9 yards and a fumble. Javonte Williams had 11 carries for 53 yards and 3 receptions for 15 yards. Noah Fant had 9 receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown. The defense had 2 sacks and a tackle for loss. Brandon McManus was 1 for 1 on fieldgoals and 3 for 3 on extra points. The coach challenged a few plays that were real head scratchers. The Broncos scored a few late touchdowns to make the score closer than the game really was.
After the torrid week the Raiders went through, no one knew which team was going to show up for the game. Were they going to fall apart or were they going to come together. Well they came together and played a (66.7%) for 341 yards and 2 touchdowns. Josh Jacobs had 16 carries for 53 yards and a touchdown with 1 reception for 29 yards. Henry Ruggs had 3 receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown. The defense had 5 sacks and a tackle for loss with 3 interceptions and fumble recovery. Daniel Carlson was 2 of 3 fieldgoals and 4 of 4 on extra points. Interim Head Coach Rich Bisaccia earned his first win as he turned the dogs lose and let his Coordinators actually do their jobs, Bravo!
Denver Broncos at Cleveland Browns
This is really a hard game to predict. The injuries to both teams are going to effect the outcome. Which ever team is healthy will win.
Browns 23 Broncos 21
Spread: Broncos +4.5
Kansas City Chiefs at Tennessee Titans
This game will be all about weather the Titans can run the ball or if the Chiefs can throw it. This game is going to be a true slobberknocker.
Chiefs 35 Titans 21
Spread: Chiefs -4.5
Philadelphia Eagles at Las Vegas Raiders
This should be a shootout and we should see fireworks from beginning to end. The team that can play some defense when it counts will win.
Raiders 31 Eagles 20
Spread: Raiders -3
Last Week: 2-1 Season: 12-9 (Bye: Los Angles Chargers)
1 game separates the entire division. This ride is going to be fantastic or is going to make you break your remote. Either way, it is going to be fun.
