Last week when the Houston Texans and Baltimore Ravens met up. There were two narratives in play. The first was that Deshaun Watson is a pocket passer who can beat you with his arm. And the other is Lamar Jackson is a running quarterback who can beat teams with his legs. In fact that’s always been the angle people used when making a case against Lamar Jackson.


They said there’s no way he would be able to make all of the NFL throws. But it was Jackson who led the Ravens to a 41-7 victory over the Texans. And it was Jackson who put his arm talent on display by throwing for 4 touchdown passes. The throws to Mark Andrews and Seth Roberts really stand out because Jackson stood in the pocket and made plays down the field. Those are the type of plays an offense has to be able to make when you get to the playoffs because the defenses are so tough. Lamar Jackson is proving he can get the job done and he’s also getting some help from the emergence of Mark Ingram. Now that Ingram is finding his stride Baltimore is more dangerous than ever. It’s easy to see why people think they’re the Super Bowl favorites because the Ravens have such a unique style of play. Defensive coordinators are staying up all night but they haven’t been able to stop it. Don’t expect that to change anytime soon.

We’re finding out that Aaron Jones can carry the torch for the Green Bay Packers. Jones is shaping up into a complete running back:

When we’re talking about the most improved player in football. Aaron Jones’ name has to be in the conversation. The 24 year old running back showed a lot of promise during the 2018 season but he’s been even better this year. Jones has racked up 14 total touchdowns and it’s amazing how much production one athlete can give their team. The funny thing is Jones is only 208 pounds but he plays fearless every Sunday. Most of his runs are right up the gut and then we usually see him break a tackle or two.


He’s also got outstanding balance and those abilities make this offense very dangerous. Aaron Rodgers doesn’t have to do it all because Jamal Williams and Jones have added some grit to this team’s ground game. Plus you have to acknowledge how good Jones has been as a receiver as well. He lined up out wide against the Kansas City Chiefs and beat Anthony Hitchens for a touchdown. And then there’s the things he can do when leaking out of the backfield. Right now it’s obvious Aaron Jones is the Packers x-factor and this has been an All-Pro year for him. But you know Green Bay’s only focus is winning a Super Bowl and if their rising star plays up to his potential is definitely possible.

Kenny Golladay is leading the way for the Detroit Lions. Nobody in the NFL has more receiving touchdowns:

When you watch Kenny Golladay play you’re almost baffled at how physically dominant he is. Replacing Calvin Johnson was never going to be easy but Golladay has done better than most would’ve expected. Right now the former 3rd round pick has a league leading 8 touchdowns and he’s been one of Bob Quinn’s best draft picks. This guy is on pace for his second consecutive 1,000 yard season and it’s amazing how reliable he’s been for Matthew Stafford.



If the other Lions played with as much heart as Golladay does then there’s no doubt this would be a winning football team. And It’ll be criminal if the former Northern Illinois alum doesn’t make the Pro Bowl this year. Often times those nominations will go to some of the more recognizable players in the NFL. But at this point Golladay has been so good that he deserves to be mentioned with the elites. For someone who was overlooked coming out of college you have to applaud him for being able to defy the odds and manifest his destiny. It all comes down to the fact that he’s able to consistently get separation from defensive backs. Golladay is very good on crossing routes and he has a long lengthy frame which he can use to go above defenders and make plays. The 26 year old is also a great red zone target or there’s no way he’d have so many touchdowns. Which proves Golladay is the total package and every other receiver is trying to keep up.

Marcus Peters has been everything the Baltimore Ravens hoped for. He’s off to a perfect start with his new team:

Usually when a player gets traded there’s a little bit of a transition phase before things start clicking. The player has to learn a new system and the terminology for each play. But for Marcus Peters it was easy because he went to a defense that fits his skill set. Out in Los Angeles Peters was asked to play a lot of man coverage in Wade Phillips’ scheme but Baltimore mixes things up. Clearly the environment has been conducive for Peters because he’s recorded 2 pick-sixes since joining the Ravens.


To put that in perspective Jalen Ramsey hasn’t recorded an interception all year. So Peters is playing much better than the guy the Rams chose to replace him with. And now Baltimore is firing on all cylinders because they added such a big contributor to their defense. Lamar Jackson gives this franchise a chance to win a Super Bowl and it makes sense to try to improve the defense so it’s even tougher to beat these guys. From what we’ve seen from Marcus Peters it’s possible that the Ravens win their 3rd Vince Lombardi Trophy. Defenses that can score touchdowns increase your odds of winning so much and when you combine that with Jackson it’s obvious Baltimore will be an unstoppable force.

Baker Mayfield put his arm on display in the Cleveland Browns 21-7 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers:

Thursday Night Football was an AFC North clash between the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers. In this game Cleveland’s defense played lights out and they held the Steelers to just 7 points. The other thing that stood out is how well Baker Mayfield played. Some of Mayfield’s throws were incredible and he did a great job of stretching the field vertically. Right away he hit Odell Beckham Jr. for a 42 yard strike. Mayfield didn’t take his foot off the gas either.


Throughout the night he would also connect with Khaderel Hodge and Jarvis Landry on a number of big throws. It felt like the former Heisman winner (Mayfield) was more confident than he was in a lot of the previous games. At this point Mayfield understands that he has to take more risks if he wants to win out and get Cleveland to the wildcard. It’s possible with a 10-6 record but that will be tough after how this game ended. Myles Garrett got into a brawl with Mason Rudolph and Garrett hit Rudolph with his own helmet. It was an embarrassment for the league and now Garrett will be suspended for an unknown length of time. Which means Mayfield will have to be even better down the final stretch of the season. To be honest this win over Pittsburgh was a pyrrhic victory because the loss of Garrett will be too much to overcome. It just goes to show that one bad decision can doom a team.

D.K Metcalf is proving all of his doubters wrong. We’re finding out just how good he can be for the Seattle Seahawks:

On draft night D.K Metcalf asked Pete Carroll “why did you wait so long?” when he was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks. It was obvious that Metcalf was upset about sliding to the bottom of the second round (64th overral). However if you ask Metcalf how he feels about life now there’s no doubt you’ll get a much different tune. Landing with the Seahawks was the perfect fit for this guy and catching passes from Russell Wilson has to be a dream come true.


That combination has led to Metcalf hauling in 595 yards and 5 touchdowns. He’s been better than any other rookie wide receiver. It’s because Metcalf is a match-up nightmare. On one play against Tampa Bay he caught a corner route and went 53 yards for a touchdown. And the former Ole Miss alum also outran Jamel Dean who ran a 4.3 40 yard dash at the NFL Combine. A player that is 6’3” 230 pounds isn’t supposed to do that but Metcalf is a rare athlete and you can see it on the field every weekend. Everyone said he wasn’t good enough to run the entire route tree but he’s also proven all the naysayers wrong in that area as well. Most of the criticism against Metcalf was more about assassinating his character than anything else. People didn’t like that he was too good of a prospect and then they created a narrative against Metcalf to hold him back. Well it didn’t work because now we have to mention him in the conversation for Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Dwayne Haskins finally has the support he needs from the Washington Redskins. Bill Callahan is all in on Haskins:

Because former Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden didn’t believe in Dwane Haskins. The rookie quarterback has fallen behind Kyler Murray and Daniel Jones. Those two other QBs had the full support of the teams that drafted them but Haskins hasn’t been as lucky. Well that’s all changing because Redskins interim head coach Bill Callahan is all in on the former Ohio State signal caller.



Ever since Case Keenum suffered a concussion Callahan has decided to go with the younger guy (Haskins). It makes sense to get his development underway and you have to remember the Redskins are 1-8. If there was ever any time to turn the team over to a rookie this is it. Haskins has actually struggled up to this point with 0 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. But we’re really going to see what he’s made of in these next seven games? Remember Haskins was selected after Murray and Jones so he has to get back on track and prove that he was overlooked in the draft. It just feels like eventually everything will start to click for the former Buckeye because he was so good in college. His arm was never the problem and you have to believe that will eventually be his strength in the NFL. Once he gains his confidence the Redskins should be in much better shape.

Washington Redskins: Bill Callahan is all in on Dwayne Haskins

With the Chicago Bears Super Bowl window quickly closing. Signing Colin Kaepernick could be the cure to their problems:

There’s no denying that the Chicago Bears have to get better at the quarterback position. Sure Mitchell Trubisky doesn’t have much help around him but he hasn’t done himself any favors either. This guy has 8 touchdowns and 3 interceptions this season and you have to believe Colin Kaepernick could put up better numbers than that. Even after a three year hiatus Kaepernick would still throw for more than 8 touchdowns if he started every single game for the Bears.


Yeah he’d be a little bit rusty but if he can help Chicago win then what are Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy waiting for? We all know the answer. They want to hang on to Trubisky because if they demote him his value will drop. There’s also a chance Trubisky could salvage his career and get back on track in these next seven games but is it even worth the risk? If Chicago collapses then their morale will be so low that it’s going to be hard to turn things around. The NFL is a performance based league and Trubisky hasn’t been up to the task. Signing Kaepernick would rally everyone in Chicago’s locker room because they all know how unfairly he was treated. Plus you have to look at what Lamar Jackson is doing in Baltimore. If Nagy is a real an X and Os mastermind he should be geeked up about what his offense could achieve with Kaepernick conducting the show. Defenses will be way more terrified of that opposed to what Chicago is working with right now.

Chubb rushing yards: In the midst of the Cleveland Browns disappointing season. Nick Chubb became a star:

The Cleveland Browns were supposed to be better than ever this season. Everyone thought this team would take the next step with Baker Mayfield and Odell Beckham Jr. But unfortunately we haven’t seen that on the field until this past Sunday. During that game Cleveland was able to knock off the Buffalo Bills 19-16. And the hope is that the Browns will start to settle in and become the team we expected them to be.


It’s no coincidence that Nick Chubb went over 100 rushing yards in this match-up because he’s the best player on this football team. The Bills had their hands full trying to tackle him and it looks like Freddie Kitchens’ fate will be on Chubb’s shoulders. This team can’t win when this guy doesn’t play up to his potential and we’re finding out that Chubb is the real star of the show. Cleveland just got Kareem Hunt back but you can’t take Nick Chubb off the field because he’s playing too good and he’s also more trustworthy. It’s time Baker Mayfield and Odell Beckham Jr. take a step backwards because they didn’t come out and earn the right to lead this team moving forward. We all know who the real X-factor is and it’s time we anoint the right person. This is a league where you have to back it up and until those other guys get their act together this is Chubb’s offense. Everything else is just an extension off that because if he doesn’t set the tone then Cleveland is dead in the water.

Nick Chubb is the Cleveland Browns most important player. Nick Chubb rushing yards are piling up.

Russell Wilson underrated: Wilson stood toe-to-toe with the top defense in the league and was still better than Jimmy Garoppolo:

Let’s make one thing clear. San Francisco and Seattle both have good defenses but the 49ers are much better. They’re ranked 1st overall in passing defense and you don’t get many opportunities when you face them. Despite that Russell Wilson still held up better than Jimmy Garoppolo did in the biggest game of the season for these two teams. Wilson actually had a bad night for his own standards but even when that happens he’s still a cut above all of the other quarterbacks.


If anyone else throws for 232 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception they’ll say “I had an okay night.” For Wilson that same performance is a failure because it seems like he’s always throwing for 300 yards and 3 touchdowns. But don’t forget that the 49ers were breathing down his neck on just about every single snap. Yet it was Garoppolo who had 3 turnovers in this football game and that essentially squandered the 49ers chances away. You also have to praise Wilson for his poise in such a difficult situation. A lot of Seattle’s plays were breaking down but Wilson doesn’t let it rattle him. He’s cool under fire and you better believe his optimism is contagious. There were two or three punts in overtime where some guys would be losing their mind because of the lack of execution. But Wilson settled in and led the Seahawks to a 27-24 win and it’s another milestone moment for his career.
