My Redskins looked pitiful against the Jets on Sunday. Dwayne Haskins struggled for most of the game but showed us some flashes of potential greatness. He has a powerful arm; he made some impressive throws and some not very impressive throws. Terry McLaurin made some fantastic catches, including one that was called back due to an offensive hold, but he looked great. Derrius Guice played and showed some solid moves running the ball and even scored his first rushing touchdown in the NFL. Here is the thing, once the current coaching staff or the next coaching staff can install an offense catered around these three guys (Haskins, Guice, and McLaurin), then this offense will be something exceptional for many years to come. I wish Snyder would sell the team or fire Bruce Allen and get a real General Manager who knows how to build a winning culture.
My current overall disposition regarding my Redskins: Waiting for this season to end….
Cowboys 35-Lions 27: Without Matthew Stafford, the Lions put on a valiant effort against the overrated Cowboys who always seem to get lucky calls and manage to win close games.
Patriots 17-Eagles 10: Tom Brady is not looking good, maybe father time is finally catching up to him. We will see what happens to New England. They have a pretty good defense, so they need Brady to manage the game and make enough plays to get them back to the Super Bowl, but I do not think they will get there this year.
Vikings 27-Broncos 23: Minnesota was down 20 to nada against Denver, but Captain Kirk took them back into the game with 20 unanswered points in the 4th quarter.
Chiefs 24-Chargers 17: Steve Spagnulo’s Defense stepped up big. The game was close, but the Chiefs intercepted Philip Rivers in the end zone to beat the Chargers by one score. Massive win for the Chiefs, heartbreaking loss for the Chargers.
Falcons 29-Panthers 3: Atlanta steamed roll through the Panthers. Kyle Allen had 4 interceptions. McCaffrey had over 100 yards receiving but could not score any points; the only points Carolina could score was a field goal that came in the 4th quarter. Maybe we were singing Kyle Allen praises a bit too soon.
Browns 21-Steelers 7: Everybody knows what happened at the end of this game. Myles Garret has been suspended for the season and the playoffs, which the Browns will not make. Look, I think the Browns caught the Steelers napping the same way they got lucky when they beat the Ravens. Baker Mayfield is overrated, and the Browns hype machine is imploding.
Ravens 41-Texans 7: Baltimore appears to be unstoppable, and at this point of the season, Lamar Jackson is without question the MVP of the league. Enough said.
Raiders 17-Bengals 10: Oakland is making a run at a wildcard spot, while the Bengals are officially the worst team in the league at 0-10. Will they win any games this season? Probably not.
49ers 36-Cardinals 26: Going into the 4th quarter Arizona was leading the game 19-17, but Jimmy G brought San Francisco back to take the lead, and their defense scored on a fumble to take the victory. The 49ers needed to win this game badly since last week they lost a divisional game to the Seahawks. Arizona is significantly better than what I expected. They are an improving team.
Rams 17-Bears 7: The story here was the benching of Trubisky in the 4th quarter, although the Bears claim that it was due to an injury. Nevertheless, Trubisky will probably end up getting released from Chicago by the end of the season. Their defense is way too talented, so they require a productive and competent quarterback to complement this defense. Jared Goff still not playing up to expectations, which is cause for concern if the Rams want to make a strong playoff run.
Saints 34-Buccaneers 17: Jameis Winston had 4 interceptions and was rough up through the whole game. The Saints are playoff-bound and seem to be a well-balanced team.
Bills 37-Dolphins 20: Josh Allen had a good game against a resurgent Miami team. The Bills had to win this divisional game to continue to build momentum for a wildcard spot.
Colts 33-Jaguars 13: Jacksonville could not get their running game going, Fournette only had 23 yards on the ground. If the Jaguars want to make some noise they need to get their running game going, Nick Foles is a competent quarterback, but he needs help. The Colts are 6-4 and are still in the hunt.
