The Houston Texans rolled the dice when they traded for Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills. This front office had to give up multiple first round picks in order to complete that trade but Houston is a much better team because of it. Their offense is ranked first in the NFL with 3,570 yards and Deshaun Watson has all of the help around him that he needs.



And because of that this team is more dangerous than ever and they’re going to be very tough to stop once the playoffs arrive. Keep in mind all of this success came after Lamar Miller was lost for the year with an ACL injury. That’s a good football player that the Texans had to replace but they‘re still the standard of the sport on the offensive side of the ball. Part of that is because they’re doing a much better job in pass protection. This team gave up 65 sacks in 2018 which was the most in the league. Right now they’ve surrendered 25 through nine games but it’s obvious that it’s no where near as bad as it was a year ago. So Watson is getting more time to scan the field and he also has more playmakers out wide. It kind of hurt DeAndre Hopkins’ production because the ball is being spread around. But this team is much closer to winning a Super Bowl and clearly that means more to Hopkins. Allowing Will Fuller, Kenny Stills, and Darren Fells to get involved is a small sacrifice to make if this franchise can bring home a Vince Lombardi Trophy. Are they at that level yet? Who knows but nobody else can carve up a defense like they can. Which is a great advantage to have with the season quickly winding down.

Commitment to excellence. The Oakland Raiders looked like a playoff team in their 26-24 win over the Los Angeles Chargers:

The Oakland Raiders started off Thursday Night Football on the right foot and never looked back. Right away Erik Harris picked off Philip Rivers and set Oakland up with a 3-0 lead. From a preparation standpoint it felt like the Raiders were a little bit sharper than the Los Angeles Chargers and it’s no surprise that the silver and black would pull out a 26-24 win. It’s those closely contested battles which really separate the boys from the men in the NFL. Clearly Jon Gruden’s enthusiasm is working because the Raiders are improving every single week.


And now this ball club looks like a playoff team. Harris would go on to have another interception that went for a pick-six. Clelin Ferrell and Maxx Crosby also did a great job of getting off their blocks and rushing Rivers. So the defense is clearly making strides. However collectively Oakland seems to be more disciplined, they’re also establishing a winning culture, and those are things that eventually lead you to the postseason or a Super Bowl. Then to cap it all off Gruden went around the whole stadium and gave out hugs and high fives to all of the fans. You can just feel it this is a better team than they’ve been in the past. Some might argue that the Chargers have more talent than the Raiders but you could see how much coaching matters. Everyone made fun of Jon Gruden a year ago but now he’s the one having the last laugh. The joke was on him last year but now it’s on anyone who doubted him.

Fresh start. Mohamed Sanu hit the ground running in his second game with the New England Patriots:

It’s always interesting to find out how a player will fit in with his new team after being traded? And it’s safe to say Mohamed Sanu was excellent in his second game with the New England Patriots. Sanu hauled in 10 receptions for 81 yards and 1 touchdown. That’s more catches than he had in any game with the Atlanta Falcons this season and it’s a promising sign. Clearly Tom Brady trusts Sanu which is surprising considering they’ve had very little time to hash out their rhythm and timing.


If this is what we can expect from Sanu every week then he’s going to have a huge role within this offense. Josh Gordon is out of the picture and New England needs someone to step up and fill those shoes. If Bill Belichick didn’t believe Sanu was up to the task there’s no way he would’ve traded for him. A second round pick isn’t a very cheap price either. The Patriots gave up some of their precious draft capital in hopes of getting the fire power they need to win a Super Bowl. For Sanu it’s definitely an upgrade because not only is he playing for a contender. There’s a real opportunity to reinvent himself and that means his value could sore. So this is the complete opposite situation as he was in with the Falcons and expect his output to pickup. After two games the Sanu trade appears to be a home run for New England.

Don’t count out the Pittsburgh Steelers. They’re improving and it’s mainly because of their defense:

For the longest time the Pittsburgh Steelers have been known for their offensive stars. Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell, and JuJu Smith-Schuster are just a handful of the names that standout. But Steelers GM Kevin Colbert has been drafting defensive players for a while now in hopes of getting that side of the ball up to speed. Well it looks like those picks have been panning out because the Steelers are overachieving.


Roethlisberger is out for the season with an elbow injury but Pittsburgh has found a way to stay competitive. That’s because the additions of T.J Watt, Devin Bush, Terrell Edmunds and the trade for Minkah Fitzpatrick give this team a talented young nucleus to build around. These core guys are still developing and they’re much faster than a bunch of aging veterans would be. And when you combine all of them together it equates to a group who is very good at two things. The first thing they do is rush the quarterback and they have 29 sacks through eight games. Pittsburgh also has 11 interceptions so their secondary is creating plays on the backend and it’s no coincidence that when your pass rush improves you’ll also get more interceptions. Fitzpatrick in particular has really made the most of his opportunities since joining this team (4 interceptions). In hindsight Colbert made the right move by being aggressive and bringing in a ball hawk to give their roster a spark. Now you can see the results on the field each Sunday.

Russell Wilson is playing the best football of his career and the Seattle Seahawks could return to the Super Bowl because of it:

Right now the best player in all of football is Russell Wilson. The Seattle Seahawks are coming off a thrilling 40-34 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Wilson was in top form in that game. The dual-threat quarterback threw for 378 yards and 5 touchdowns proving he’s a cut above everyone else.


In fact Wilson has been so good that his total for the season is now up to 22 touchdowns and only 1 interception. Which essentially means that Wilson is lighting it up through the air. The other thing he does really well is protect the football. Seattle doesn’t beat themselves and it’s because they hardly make any mistakes. Russell Wilson sets a great precedent for the other players in that locker room with his own play and everyone else seems to follow suit. So there’s two main factors that make up the player Wilson is. First and foremost he’s an electric playmaker who can create opportunities that many other quarterbacks can’t make. Then there’s Wilson’s leadership and how good of a job he does keeping this team poised. Seattle’s only focus is winning football games and they bounce back from letdowns very quickly. Part of that is because Pete Carroll is such an optimist himself. Therefore Russell Wilson is the perfect fit for Carroll’s system and those two have been having success ever since. Now it seems like the 30 year old (Wilson) will win his first MVP award and he certainly deserves it.

Dak Prescott is seeing the field better than he has in the past and it’s making the Dallas Cowboys much tougher to beat:

The Dallas Cowboys couldn’t afford to have a letdown against the New York Giants in their Monday Night Football match-up. The Philadelphia Eagles just got their 5th win over the Chicago Bears and that made the NFC East a very tight race. But luckily the Cowboys got a big game from Dak Prescott and that made life so much easier for Jerry Jones’ team. Before the final whistle blew Prescott had racked up 257 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception.


It was a much better performance than Daniel Jones was able to put together and let’s be honest Dallas can beat some of the top teams in the league when Prescott is dialed in. This is what the Cowboys need from this guy if they return to the playoffs and it also helps when Ezekiel Elliott plays as well is he did in this victory. When those two are on it supercharges this offense and they’re so tough to stop. Elliott had 139 yards against the Giants and that kept so many drives alive. Those two players have been the identity of Dallas for the past four seasons now and it’s up to them to keep their foot on the gas during these last eight games. After winning 37-18 against New York you know their confidence is high. Moving forward they have to improve from a consistency standpoint because we’ve seen the Cowboys struggle against the Jets, Saints, and Packers. However when they play up to their potential for all four quarters they’re one of the better teams in the NFC.

The Los Angeles Chargers are clearly a better team with Melvin Gordon and that was obvious in their 26-11 win over the Green Bay Packers:

This current Los Angeles Chargers team is better than the one that started the season. Melvin Gordon was missing because of a holdout and Melvin Ingram was out of action with a hamstring injury. But now the Chargers are getting their pieces back and it’s giving them some optimism with seven games remaining.



That couldn’t be more obvious than it was against the Green Bay Packers. Gordon is starting to get back in game shape and he rushed for 80 yards and 2 touchdowns against the Pack. With each rep Gordon seems to look a little more like the player he once was. You could see that against Green Bay when he hurdled a defender. Let’s be honest Gordon’s athleticism is incredible and he was such a big factor in this team’s win yesterday. Los Angeles is also improving because of Mike Williams who had over 100 receiving yards. So all of these athletes are peaking at the right time and it makes Los Angeles very dangerous from here on out. If Gordon and the rest of these guys can heat up from now until when Derwin James returns then look out. If everything goes right the Chargers could climb back into the playoffs and then go on a deep run.

Ryan Fitzpatrick was on fire in the Miami Dolphins 26-18 upset over the New York Jets:

Let’s make one thing clear. The New York Jets should’ve beat the Miami Dolphins. While New York signed Le’Veon Bell, Jamison Crowder, and C.J Mosley to improve their roster. Miami went in the complete opposite direction and traded away all of their best players. However the Dolphins were able to knock off the Jets because Ryan Fitzpatrick was the best player on the field in this contest. The gap between Fitzpatrick and Sam Darnold was pretty big and this is what the veteran quarterback can bring to this team.


Fitzpatrick is so good at throwing the football that he can get defenses on their heels very quickly. New York found that out the hard way and there’s also some rapport developing between Preston Williams and Fitzpatrick. Williams had 2 receiving touchdowns in this game and those two could be even better down the line. The other guy who is really coming along for Miami is Mike Gesicki. Gesicki also had a receiving touchdown and if Fitzpatrick can keep working with these weapons then the Dolphins might have something. Everyone in South Florida wants this franchise to draft Tua Tagovailoa but if Miami stuck with Fitzpatrick it could free this team up to draft someone like Chase Young. Young isn’t a great fit for a 3-4 scheme but the Dolphins could take Young off talent alone and become a better football team. Building around Fitzpatrick for two or three years gives them that option.

Overlooked. It’s time we recognize just how good Matthew Stafford has been for the Detroit Lions:

There’s no doubt that it’s easy to overlook Matthew Stafford because he plays for Detroit. The Lions have traditionally struggled and often times their quarterback had to shoulder the blame for those shortcomings. But something has changed in Stafford this year. This guy has always checked all of the boxes when we’re talking about the things that make up an NFL quarterback. His arm is one of the best in the league, he can make every throw on the field, and at 6’3” 220 pounds you couldn’t ask for someone with better size.


However where Stafford has struggled at times is with his decision making. It’s those intangibles that he needed to work on and being a smart quarterback is what makes players like Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers so successful. It seems like Stafford is finally understanding this as well because he’s done a remarkable job so far of protecting the football. With 16 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions in 2019 Stafford is giving the Lions a chance because Detroit doesn’t beat themselves anymore. Turnovers are the quickest way to unravel and Stafford has improved so much in this phase of the game. Because this guy is choosing not to force some of his throws it’s also led him to his highest quarterback rating ever (105). If Detroit had a better record Stafford would be in the conversation for MVP but we still can’t disregard how good he’s been. Right now the 31 year old gunslinger is dialed in.

After carrying the Minnesota Vikings for the past three weeks. Stefon Diggs is on pace for his best season yet:

Somebody had to step up for the Minnesota Vikings. Dalvin Cook has carried this team for most of the season but Minnesota needed someone else to take the next step as well. We know now that Stefon Diggs is the guy who is rising to the occasion and he has three consecutive games of at least 100 yards. Of course this happened with Adam Thielen sidelined with a hamstring injury.



Which means Kirk Cousins had to target Diggs more frequently because he doesn’t have anyone else to throw to. But Diggs has made the most out of those additional opportunities and that tells you about the type of player he is. As a former 5th round pick it was obvious Diggs was better than the spot he was drafted in but now he’s becoming an elite receiver in the NFL. This guy is on pace for over 1,400 yards and 8 touchdowns. Keep in mind that Minnesota just paid him a 5-year $72M contract in 2018. Therefore Diggs has been holding up his end of the bargain and this is exactly what the Vikings hoped for when they committed to the 25 year old. On the field his biggest impact has been in the vertical passing game. Diggs can take the top off the defense and it’s led to a surge of output in Minnesota’s passing attack. Not to mention this ball club is 6-2 and could return to the playoffs because of how good Cook and Diggs have been.
