A good rushing attack can go a long way. Last year Sony Michel got hot in the playoffs and helped the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl. And last night against the New York Jets Michel caught fire again and carved up Gregg Williams’ defense in a 33-0 onslaught. Michel recorded 3 touchdowns before the night was over and the Patriots imposed their will on a lackluster Jets team. This wasn’t even a game and you knew it was over before halftime. For Michel most of his touches came down on the goal line and he made the most out of those opportunities.


Those plays can be the difference between winning and losing games because you don’t want to settle for field goals. Could New England win this game without Michel’s big night? Yes but against tougher opponents you need a powerful runner who can score touchdowns. Right now this is a great sign for the Patriots because Michel is starting to find his rhythm at the perfect time. Clearly Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels are doing everything they can to get Michel involved and put their grand plan in motion. So you can expect the former 1st round pick (Michel) to have a larger role heading forward. Oh yeah by the way New England is 7-0 and it’s starting to feel like they’re good enough to go undefeated. Very few people would be surprised if that were to happen.

Sony Michel led the way in a Patriots Monday Night Football clash against the Jets.

Dialed in. Aaron Rodgers was the best version of himself in the Green Bay Packers 42-24 win over the Oakland Raiders:

When it comes to arm talent Aaron Rodgers is one of the most gifted quarterbacks in the league. But even Rodgers stepped it up against the Oakland Raiders combining for 6 touchdowns in what would go on to be a 42-24 win. Rodgers threw for 429 yards, 5 touchdowns and then ran for another touchdown as well. Green Bay is already so tough to beat this year but they’re nearly impossible to defeat when Rodgers plays like this.


The veteran QB made every throw imaginable in this contest and the Packers seemed to have a lot of their success off of playaction. Which is due to the fact that defenses are selling out to stop Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. So once Rodgers sees those linebackers out of position it makes it easier for him to take advantage because he can squeeze the ball in the tightest of windows. Unfortunately for the Raiders they had to learn that the hard way and this was such an impressive win for Green Bay. From here on out this franchise will be much more confident because not only is the team performing at a high level. Their best player (Rodgers) is also getting into a groove and if everything goes according to plan then the Packers will be very close to winning it all once the playoffs arrive. Outside of the San Francisco 49ers they’re definitely the team to beat in the NFC.

Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper helped the Dallas Cowboys take control of the NFC East by beating the Philadelphia Eagles 37-10:

When the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles met up for this week’s Sunday Night Football matchup there was a lot riding on the line. Both teams are battling for NFC East supremacy but ultimately the Cowboys athletes were better. Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper were exceptional in this game and it’s hard to beat Dallas when those two guys are on. Elliott got the night started by trucking an Eagles defender and getting down to the goal line.


Eventually Elliott would get in and it was off to the races for the two-time rushing champion. Once the night was over Elliott had racked up 111 rushing yards and 1 touchdown. And he’s certainly the catalyst for this offense if Zeke is playing well then Dallas can score 30 points per game. The other top performer was Amari Cooper who was much better than the Eagles secondary. When we talk about some of the best vertical threats in the league. Cooper has to be in the conversation because he has a knack for taking the top off the defense. While Carson Wentz and Philadelphia struggled to create plays down the field. Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper drove their team to victory and that was the story line that stood out the most in this win. Maybe more importantly the Cowboys stopped their three game losing streak and now they‘re still the team to beat in this division.

Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper lit up the Philadelphia Eagles. Now Dallas sit atop the NFC East.

Urban Meyer put his offer on the table. Now the Dallas Cowboys have to accept it because Meyer is leaps and bounds better than Jason Garrett:

We’ve all heard Jerry Jones delusional support for Jason Garrett. In Jones defense that’s what he has to say with Garrett as the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys or it would hurt the team’s chances of winning each Sunday. But when Urban Meyer publicly stated that he would take the Cowboys job it changed everything for this franchise. Jason Garrett preaches about being organized but he doesn’t have great football IQ like Meyer does.


For the past several years Dallas has struggled with their offensive X and Os and that’s why Scott Linehan was fired and Kellen Moore took over the reins. You could combine both of those offensive coordinators knowledge and they still aren’t on par with Meyer. And you know the former Ohio State coach remembers the last time he had Ezekiel Elliott to carry his offense (The Buckeyes won a National Championship). Ultimately Meyer will get the ball to his athletes in space and create mismatches for this offense. Which is the area Dallas has been lacking in and it’s almost like a match made in heaven. Clearly Meyer has a lot of respect for the Cowboys brand and he’s available if Jones needs him. With Nick Saban and Chip Kelly both failing during their attempt at pro football. It’ll be interesting to see if Meyer can make the transition and show he can have success at the next level. One thing is for certain you shouldn’t bet against him.

Gruden effect. If the playoffs started today the Oakland Raiders would be in:

We knew the Oakland Raiders weren’t going to the playoffs in Jon Gruden’s first season because they traded away Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper. But those moves set the Raiders up with a brighter future and you can already see the results on the field.


If the postseason started today Oakland would face the Houston Texans in the AFC Wildcard. Obviously that would be a tough matchup but at least the silver and black are trending in the right direction. It’s so hard to have success in the National Football League but Gruden’s risks are paying off. Which is something we have to talk about because last year Gruden was the laughing stock of the league. All of the media and all of the sports writers crucified the Super Bowl winning coach (Gruden) because they thought he was a fool for shipping out Mack and Cooper. Although that hasn’t been the case because those draft picks Oakland acquired turned into Josh Jacobs, Clelin Ferrell, and other players who are now buying into what Gruden is selling. The amazing thing about this whole situation is Oakland still has a ways to go on both sides of the ball. Once they get the right pieces in there it’ll be awesome to see how far this franchise can go?

Patrick Mahomes is optimistic after injuring his knee. The Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl hopes are still alive if Mahomes can return:

There was a scary moment last night in the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos AFC West clash. Reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes injured his knee on a quarterback sneak. It looked like his leg got bent awkwardly on that play and there was also several Broncos players who landed on top of Mahomes.



After you could see the trainers popping Mahomes’ knee back into place and Chiefs fans were in total shock watching everything unfold. Eventually the diagnosis ended up being a damaged patella (knee cap). If it’s not too serious Mahomes could be out of action for 2-3 weeks. However that’s the best case scenario and it’s possible the Chiefs could lose Mahomes for the entire season. If the team’s medical staff does shut their franchise QB down for the year. Then you can kiss Kansas City’s Super Bowl hopes goodbye. There is some good news though. Mahomes said “everything is looking good so far” and we should take his statement as a positive indication of what’s to come. It’s unlikely he’ll repeat as MVP because of the time he’ll miss but at the end of the day a Vince Lombardi Trophy is more important.

Tyreek Hill kept his hot steak going in the Kansas City Chiefs’ 30-6 destruction of the Denver Broncos:

It’s only Tyreek Hill’s second game back from a sternoclavicular joint injury which caused him to miss a month of action. However Hill picked up right where he left off last week by stretching his touchdown streak to two consecutive games. In fact Hill has 3 total touchdowns since bouncing back from that medical setback and he’s the same explosive player we’ve seen light up the NFL in the past. Chiefs backup quarterback Matt Moore actually threw Hill a touchdown on a deep pass.


Tyreek Hill was initially running a crossing route on that play but he cut upfield and Moore put his throw on the money. It’s the consistency which makes Hill such an amazing player and his speed is what separates him from the pack. Most cornerbacks can’t go stride-for-stride with Hill because they’ll always be a step behind. So Denver did everything they could scheme-wise to limit Hill by playing soft coverage and double teaming the vertical threat. But once the clock struck zero it was obvious the Broncos stood no chance in this matchup. Denver failed on both sides of the ball and it was a complete letdown against an AFC West rival. Meanwhile the Chiefs improved to 5-2 and their best athlete (Hill) is on fire.

The Los Angeles Rams go all in once again. This time it’s on one of the best cornerbacks in football, Jalen Ramsey:

The Los Angeles Rams are no strangers to going all in. They gave the Tennessee Titans six draft picks to get Jared Goff back in 2016. Then Rams GM Les Snead shipped another handful of picks for Aqib Talib, Marcus Peters, and Dante Fowler in 2018. So it’s not too surprising when we found out that Los Angeles sent two first round picks packing for Jalen Ramsey. Clearly LA’s front office believes this is a move that can turn their luck around.


Yeah this team went to the Super Bowl last year but since then they’ve taken a step backwards and this is supposed to be the solution to their problems. Ramsey will replace Marcus Peters who was actually traded to Baltimore on the same day. For as talented as Peters was he wasn’t a good fit for the Rams system-wise and Ramsey has a chance to be much better. Especially when we’re talking about man coverage. Jalen Ramsey can line up against the best and excel in cover-0 or cover-1. What that does is allow Wade Phillips to blitz more often and leave his corners out on an island. Phillips is an aggressive play caller so this suits his tendencies very well. Will it fix all of Los Angeles’ problems? Who knows but it definitely sends a message to the locker room that the decision makers upstairs are going to do all they can to put a winning team on the field.

Everything is coming together for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Why they set themselves up with a very bright future:

Everyone knows Jalen Ramsey is a great cornerback but Ramsey didn’t want to be in Jacksonville any longer. Which makes this trade a great move for the Jaguars because they shipped Ramsey to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for two first round picks (2020 /2021) and a 4th round pick (2021). While there’s no doubt Jacksonville will feel that loss throughout the remainder of the season.


This was a great decision for the Jaguars when we’re talking about their long term future. By adding all of that draft capital this front office can reload and make their roster better than it ever was with Ramsey. Keep in mind Jacksonville did go to the AFC Championship back in 2017 so that’s saying a lot. But what they got in return for Ramsey was a king’s ransom and now there’s four first round picks over the next two years to fix any of this team’s shortcomings. One of those selections will probably be used on a cornerback to replace Ramsey. And then you have to believe Tom Coughlin and David Caldwell will do everything they can to improve the offense. That’s been the achilles heel of this franchise for the past five years or so. Which makes it clear it’s time for a change.

A star is born. Chris Godwin has officially arrived and now he’s entering that elite class of wide receivers:

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren’t having the best season but there is one bright spot for this team. That’s third year wide receiver Chris Godwin who has dominated through the first six games. We could see this was the direction things were heading last year because Godwin showed glimpses of greatness.


However he’s taking the next step in 2019 and it’s amazing how far his game has come. It’s gotten to the point where Godwin is actually the number one receiver in this offense over Mike Evans. With a league leading 662 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns Godwin has also showed up Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr, and all the other elite pass catchers. It’s a shame that Tampa Bay has a 2-4 record because it’s really taken some of the attention away from Godwin. If this guy played for a winning team we’d be hearing a lot more about how good he’s been. Although it doesn’t diminish what the former Penn State alum has accomplished and it’s exciting to see where his career goes from here? We could just be witnessing the beginning of Godwin’s ascension. There’s a good chance he’ll be a household name from here on out and expect to see him in the Pro Bowl once the time comes.
