Yeah. Giants defensively are in the mix, but the O-line is lacking. The guy with the cool hair can only do so much when he returns.

Unless Brandon Marshall or Sterling Shepard step up, I agree - ODB will almost certainly be headed for a decent amount of double coverage regardless.

What do you guys view as the biggest surprise of week one, that the Patriots lost their home opener, that the Rams are in sole possession of first place, or that the Bills are in sole possession of first place?

Best,

Geoff

Deshaun Watson's first start is a success. His 49-yard touchdown run in the 2nd quarter tonight was the longest ever by a quarterback in his first NFL start. Happy birthday, Deshaun!

In the meantime, the Bengals have yet to score their first touchdown of the season.

Best,

Geoff

Well, I'm still watching; but that last game was just painful to watch. The Falcons not only beat the Packers, they beat them up. Five starters injured, including Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Here's hoping Green Bay can remedy that by the end of the season, or they won't get past the NFC Championship Game again (presuming they're lucky enough to get that far).

But today's win by the Broncos was a thing of beauty! They dominated on both sides of the ball against a strong Cowboys team. Who would have thought Trevor Siemian could look better than Dak Prescott?

As for the Rams, despite today's loss, I still think they're coming along nicely. They were tied at the 2-minute warning; and if Los Angeles hadn't committed so many penalties, they might have been ahead at that point. Goff was on target with most of his passing, but he's still telegraphing his moves too often. Nonetheless, the Rams are on the right track and a far cry better than last year. Congrats to ProfD on Washington's win.

Best,

Geoff

I realize the Giants started 0-2 in 2007 and still managed to beat the undefeated Patriots in the Super Bowl, but I'm not sure this edition has it in them. Then again, maybe the Lions are that good. I guess we'll see how they handle themselves against the Falcons next week...

Too bad for the Packers. Congrats on the Broncos win especially beating an enemy team. grin

I am grateful for the SKins' win. But, I hope they commit to running the football. It sets up everything else and controls the clock.

The defense looks a little better than last year. They still allow teams to march downfield and score. I do not subscribe to the bend but don't break mentality either. We should be more aggressive.

Otherwise, I'm just glad football season is back. I'm having a blast watching the games and playing FF and Pick 'Em. cool

Not looking good. Poor Erik Flowers, kid gets beat with almost every move. Seattle has a bad line too, but at least Russell Wilson can scramble around. Eli is pure pocket passer. Giants plan was to keep the O-line they had last year and assume they'd improve. They didn't. Now the big change is going to be... (gasp), Bob McAdoo giving up play calling, maybe. facepalm

Next Sunday against the Eagles is a must win. Maybe they keep Brandon Marshall in to help Flowers.

While the Giants are still dead last in offensive rushing, and Flowers can't block, against the Lions Eli really looked slow and inadequate in avoiding the rush.

What a shootout between the Rams and 49ers! I'm glad LA managed to win (41-39).

One piece of trivia: this is the second highest point total through the first three games in Rams' franchise history (next to the "Greatest Show on Turf" edition). Yeah, I'd say the Rams have improved. thu

(Although, perhaps their defense hasn't yet improved, as much as I hate to say it—as I like Wade Phillips A LOT more than *shudder* Gregg Williams. The 49ers offense hadn't scored a touchdown yet this season prior to tonight's game. They scored five tonight.)

Best,

Geoff

LOL! Yeah, the "On Any Given Sunday" rule is in full effect today: Jacksonville bashes Baltimore, Buffalo beats Denver—by ten points, Chicago beats Pittsburg, New England narrowly beats Houston, Minnesota has to field backup QB Case Keenum and still handily beats Tampa Bay, and the rebuilding Jets crush the Dolphins—and those are just the morning games!

Best,

Geoff

Yes!!!

Aaron Rodgers gets his first overtime win as Green Bay beats Cincinnati 27-24 at home.

The Packers were a touchdown shy of covering the spread though, so they can be added to the "On Any Given Sunday" theme that prevailed today.

Best,

Geoff

Between the Giants loss, my genius move of starting Cutler over Russell Wilson in FF, and then tanking a variety of pickem pools... just a down week of NFL for me.

You know how it goes....if they can stagger into the playoffs at 9-7 they should probably be the favorite going forward from there.....it's kind of their move....

Some pivotal games today: The Bills handed the Falcons their first defeat of the season in Atlanta to regain sole possession of first place in the AFC East as the Patriots lost at home to the Panthers, who are now tied with the Falcons for first place in the NFC South.

In the meantime, the 3-0 Chiefs are the only undefeated team remaining in the NFL, and they face what may be the best team in the NFC East—Washington—tomorrow night.

It sure was fun to watch the Rams come back to beat the Cowboys today! Los Angeles currently has the top ranked offense in the NFL. thu

Best,

Geoff

Dave, my condolences on Derek Carr's injury. I hope it turns out to be a minor one.

Meanwhile in the basement of the AFC West, the Chargers lost yet another close one today. They're 0-4, but they're three close losses away from being 3-1.

Best,

Geoff

I hope Chargers HC Lynn is given a chance to rebuild their team. It will take a few years to get the right players on the roster.

The Skins have a tall order on Monday night. I believe they will win. grin cool
