- Pats Prevail: You might have heard this one before, but it looks like the road to the AFC East will yet again go through Foxborough. The Patriots took on a solid Jets team, both offensively and defensively this year, with only 18 offensive players dressed and came out on on top with a 7 point victory. The Jets owned the stats leading in time of possession, total yards, first downs and were going against a non-existent Patriots running game (Tom Brady actually led the team with 15 yards), but could not own the scoreboard as Brady carved up the vaunted Jets secondary with 355 yards and 2 touchdowns. With a victory the Jets would have overtaken first in the AFC East, but the 38 year old Tom Brady and his amazing dimpled chin decided to bring Jets fans back down to earth, at least for 1 week.
- Houston We Have a Problem: The Houston Texans are a bad football team, like really bad. They found themselves down 41-0, yes 41-0 at half time! According to STATS, the Dolphins became the first team in at least 75 years to score four offensive touchdowns of 50 yards or more in a half. The Dolphins, now 2-0 under new coach Dan Campbell, made the Texans look like an over-matched high-school team. To make matters worse, Arian “Fragile” Foster went down in the 2nd half with an Achilles tear and sadly his career could be over as well as some fantasy football team’s seasons out there that were relying on him. Amazingly, they find themselves only 1 game out of first place in the absolutely pathetic AFC South.
- Raiders Rising: The Oakland Raiders are not a bad football team, which is the first time that can be said in over 10 years. The final score was closer than it looked as they beat the Chargers on the road 37-29 after being up 37-6. It looks like they have finally found a more than serviceable quarterback in Carr and a franchise WR in Amari Cooper. Along with some other weapons on offense as well as some talent on defense this team can contend for a wild card spot in AFC.
Editor’s Note: Patriots Defense has glaring issues. Road to the Super Bowl runs through Cincinnati or Denver.
