Chaos At The Linc
Truly this is one of the wildest games that I can remember in recent memory.
Chaos is the only appropriate word to describe Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.
From a 102-yard kickoff return, to a second-half brawl, to two young quarterbacks engaging each other in an exciting duel, this game just had it [...]
San Diego @ Buffalo
The Chargers may be primed for a letdown after last week’s surprising win over Seattle, but I just can’t see the Bills starting the season 3-0.
Pick: San Diego 24, Buffalo 23
Tennessee @ Cincinnati
The Titans’ mediocre offense is just not going to be able to generate enough points against the powerful Cincinnati defense.
Nick Foles hasn’t played his best through two weeks, but he hasn’t folded in the face of adversity. In both of the team’s victories, he’s picked up his game and made some big throws in the later stages of each game. I expect Foles to make improvements and slowly settle himself in as he adjusts [...]
Ridley, Johnson, or Miller?
In one of my big leagues, I’ve got a decision to make about my second running back for the week.
My best options are Stevan Ridley, Chris Johnson, and Lamar Miller.
Ridley is coming off of a 100-yard performance against the Raiders in which he also scored a touchdown. However, the Patriots’ running back [...]
Tampa Bay @ Atlanta
Tampa Bay just hasn’t looked good so far. I’m a little disappointed, I thought the Bucs with their offensive weapons and the stabilizing presence of Lovie Smith would be a little farther along than they are right now.
Josh McCown has killed this team with some terrible interceptions, and if that continues the [...]
The Eagles haven’t been getting enough production from enough of their wide receivers through the first two games of the season.
Jeremy Maclin has done his part, scoring key touchdowns in each of the first two games, but the rest of this unit leave much to be desired.
Riley Cooper has been completely invisible so far. Cooper [...]
Sproles Saves The Eagles Again
How incredible has Darren Sproles been through two games?
As if sparking the rally against the Jaguars weren’t enough, for an encore, Sproles picked up 178 yards from scrimmage, including 152 through the air.
Sproles looked quick and explosive, and played with a purpose. For a little guy, he sure plays hard. He [...]
No one is sure what to make of Nick Foles right now. An absolutely brutal first half against the Jaguars shook the confidence of even the staunchest Foles’ fans. There were some brutal turnovers, and plenty of indecisiveness as Foles held on to the ball far too long. But a resurgent second half played a [...]
Miami @ Buffalo
Both teams made major statements a week ago with upsets of the Patriots and Bears respectively. I think the Miami offense under former Eagles’ quarterback coach Bill Lazor is the more legitimate of the two, and I give the Dolphins a slight edge on the road.
Pick: Miami 24, Buffalo 21
Detroit @ Carolina
Cam Newton [...]
Philip Rivers or Alex Smith?
In one of my two big leagues, I picked up Alex Smith on waivers, and I’m now considering starting him over Philip Rivers, who like Eddie Lacy before him, now has a difficult matchup against the dreaded Seattle Seahawks defense. Smith is matched up against the Denver Broncos, who have a [...]
