We shocked the Football world, baby! Washington spectacularly ended Philadelphia’s undefeated season. This was a massive win for a Washington team looking to make a late-season push.
Taylor Heinicke didn’t have impressive stats, but his passionate style of play had a crucial impact on the overall flow of this game. The running game was consistent with Brian Robinson’s powerful, physical running. Scott Turner using Antonio Gibson and Curtis Samuel in the ground game was excellent. The O-line held up nicely, and the protection was efficient.
Jalen Hurts constantly tested the Defense, but the entire unit stepped up big-time here, making solid plays, creating turnovers, and helped delivered the signature win of the season.
WASH 32 — EAGLES 21
Next up, Washington visits Houston. This is a game Washington should easily win; however, Houston has a dangerous running back, Daemon Pierce. He can create problems for any team, but our Defensive front should be able to handle Pierce. Advantage, Washington Commanders.
And for the rest of the league,
DALLAS 28 — PACKERS 31
The Cowboys were finally exposed; they are overhyped and overrated. The Packers took apart Dallas’s Defense on the ground and through the air. Dak Prescott had costly 2 picks, but at least Ceedee Lamb and Tony Pollard had a solid game. Mike McCarthy made a stupid decision in overtime that pretty much handed Green Bay the win. Next, Dallas visits Minnesota. Advantage, Minnesota Vikings.
The Packers saved their season, and if they can put a couple of wins together, they will be back in the mix for an NFC playoff spot. Next, Green Bay hosts Tennessee. Advantage, Tennessee Titans.
NY GIANTS 24 — TEXANS 16
The Giants continue to rack up wins against lesser competition. However, their 7-2 record is a mirage, and they will start crumbling soon enough. Next, the Nay Giants host Detroit. Detroit Lions.
The Texans are way better than their 1-7-1 record indicates. They have a bunch of pieces in place to be contenders next season. They will most certainly select a top QB in next year’s draft.
49ERS 22 — LA CHARGERS 16
The San Francisco 49ers are starting to find themselves as a team, and at 5-4, they are only 1 game away from first place in the NFC West. Next, San Francisco visits Arizona. Advantage, San Francisco 49ers.
The LA Chargers lost another close game; their lack of a running game is alarming. At 5-4, they are only 1 game away from Kansas City in the AFC West, which keeps them alive in the playoff race. Next, the LA Chargers host Kansas City. Advantage, Kansas City Chiefs.
BUCCANEERS 21 — SEAHAWKS 16
Tom Brady had a strong game and silenced his critics for at least one week. The Buccaneers successfully established a solid run game; Rachaad White ran for 105 yards which opened things up for the entire offense. Even Julio Jones made a cameo with 3 catches for 53 yards and 1 TD. Next, Tampa Bay has a bye week.
The Seahawk’s 4-game winning streak ended, but at 6-4, Seattle still leads the NFC West, but Sam Francisco is hot on their trail. Next, Seattle has a week off.
VIKINGS 33 — BILLS 30
The ending of this game is being hailed as one of the most thrilling endings in recent memory. And Justin Jefferson’s one-handed catch is getting calls for one of the greatest ever. The Vikings are on fire and have momentum on their side. Next, Minnesota hosts Dallas. Advantage, Minnesota Vikings.
The Bills are on a 2-game losing streak and have fallen behind the Jets and the Dolphins in the AFC East. Josh Allen has been shaky as of late, so he needs clean some things up. Nevertheless, Buffalo has some winnable games coming up in their schedule. Next, Buffalo hosts Cleveland. Advantage, Buffalo Bills.
STEELERS 20 — SAINTS 10
The Steelers Defense neutralized Alvin Kamara to 26 yards and dared Andy Dalton to beat them through the air. Surprisingly, at 3-6, Pittsburgh could make a late-season push. Next, Pittsburgh hosts Cincinnati. Advantage, Cincinnati Bengals.
The Saints have fallen behind to last place in the NFC South, and at 3-7, the time to panic has arrived. Instead, they keep flip popping between Andy Dalton and Jameis Winston at QB, and the results remain lackluster. Next, New Orleans hosts the LA Rams. Advantage, LA Rams.
LIONS 31 — BEARS 30
The Lions delivered a statement victory against a division rival. The combination of Jared Goff and Amon-Ra St Brown was outstanding. At 3-6, Detroit could make things interesting in the NFC North. NEXT, Detroit visits the NY Giants. Advantage, Detroit Lions.
The Bears allowed this game to slip away in the 4th quarter. Encouragingly, Justin Fields had a monster game, throwing for 167 yards with 2 TDs and 1 pick. In addition, he rushed for 147 yards and 2 TDs; it was an impressive performance. Next, Chicago visits Atlanta. Advantage, Chicago Bears.
COLTS 25 — RAIDERS 20
Jeff Saturday made his debut as a head coach and had the guts to re-insert Matt Ryan, which paid dividends. Jonathan Taylor found his running game again, rushing for 147 yards and 1 TD. Next, Indianapolis hosts Philadelphia. Advantage, Indianapolis Colts.
The Raiders were a playoff team last season; they came into this 2022 season loaded with talent and tons of hope; sadly, Josh McDaniels has pissed away any potential playoff chance this team had this season. Next, the Las Vegas Raiders visit Denver. Advantage, Denver Broncos.
CARDINALS 27 — LA RAMS 17
Colt McCoy played an excellent game replacing Kyler Murray. McCoy threw for over 200 yards with 1 TD and zero picks. The entire offense seemed to flow more efficiently under McCoy’s leadership. Next, Arizona hosts San Francisco. Advantage, San Francisco 49ers.
The LA Rams are in a deep hole at 3-6 and last place in the NFC West. Things are looking grim for the Rams; Matt Stafford is injured, and Cooper Kupp is on IR. And on top of all of that, their running game is non-existent. Next, the LA Rams visit New Orleans. Advantage, LA Rams.
DOLPHINS 39 —BROWNS 17
The Dolphins are one of the hottest teams in the NFL, Tua is officially in the MVP conversation, and Mike Mcdonald should be in consideration for coach of the year. At 7-3, Miami is on top of the AFC East. Next, Miami has a week off.
Cleveland is teetering at 3-6; Jacoby Brissett has 2 games left until Deshaun Watson is allowed to play after serving his suspension. Next, Cleveland visits Buffalo. Advantage, Buffalo Bills.
TITANS 17 — BRONCOS 10
Ryan Tannehill returned and looked pretty good, throwing for over 200 yards with 2 TDs and zero picks. At 6-3, Tenessee is the clear-cut favorite to the AFC South. Next, Tenessee visits Green Bay. Advantage, Tenessee Titans.
The Broncos are a disaster in all areas of their game. Russel Wilson continues to struggle, and their running game is pathetic. At 3-6, Denver has a steep hill to climb to land a playoff spot. Next, Denver hosts Las Vegas. Advantage, Denver Broncos.
PANTHERS 25 — FALCONS 15
The Panthers used their solid ground game to outrun their division rival. Unfortunately, PJ Walker finished the game injured, and it is Baker Mayfield’s chance to turn things around. Next, Carolina visits Baltimore. Advantage, Baltimore Ravens.
The Falcons have lost 2-games in a row, but at 4-6, Atlanta is in 2nd place behind Tampa Bay in the NFC South. Next, Atlanta hosts Chicago. Advantage, Chicago Bears.
