Weekly Grade and Predictions

“When you wish apon a star, makes no differnce who you are. Anything your heart desires, will come to you.”
I know, I know……it is cheesy but it is so applicable in this week’s scenario. Let’s go….

This was hyped as the “Game of the year” to date with two of the most powerful offenses in the NFL clashing. It ended up being all about the defense. The Chiefs defense scored near the end of the 1st half to give them a 21-0 lead at halftime. The offense was shutout in the second half and almost blew that big lead but the defense made a enough plays in the end to secure the victory.
Grade: B+

Ok, ok, ok….it really happened. The Raiders fired HC Josh McDaniels, GM Dave Zeigler and OC Mick Lombardi. Antonio Pierce was made the Interim Head Coach and did this team respond. The offense was good and scored 30 points for the first time this season with Aiden O’Connell at quarterback and Josh Jacobs scoring twice. The defense went nuts in this game with 8 sacks (Madd Maxx with 3 sacks), 8 tackles for lose and 2 interceptions. This was a different team this week.
Grade: A

Justin Hebert and Chargers offense was really off this week. With that said, a punt return for a touchdown and Austin Ekeler rushing for 2 touchdowns was all the firepower they needed. The defense was crazy good in this game with 8 sacks and 3 fumble recoveries. This was not a pretty game by any means but it was a telling game for the Chargers. Their special teams and defense were outstanding while their passing game struggled. This was a good win.

This season has taken a much needed twist for the division. We are seeing the defenses win games. The second half of the season will be very interesting and fun. You never want to see someone lose their job but somethings have to be said:
