Dallas needs to bounce back after losing at home on Thanksgiving last week. They will try to take the series tonight and beat Washington again.
Sunday, Dec. 3
Monday, Dec. 4
Teams to watch this week:
New Orleans Saints- won seven straight games with a great rushing game and defense
Los Angeles Rams- offense looks like a complete upgrade from last year while defense is even better
Minnesota Vikings- Case Keenum will face his former team... this should be interesting
Jacksonville Jaguars- their defense is one of the best in the league, which explains their 6-3 record
Cruising along this week with a New York matchup starting us off. Bills won this week with the new addition of Kelvin Benjamin to their receivers. His status is 50/50 for now, but he will help the Bills in the future as they look to go to the playoffs.

Another week and another good way to start it. Miami looks good in a tough division with Matt Moore doing well at QB right now. Baltimore needs Flacco to be better right now and to help them get to .500. This should be an interesting way to begin.

Teams are slowly figuring out what works for them this week as we get closer to the halfway point of the season. Tonight's game features two teams led by quarterbacks having a solid season so far. Cam Newton is still limited in practices but he showed up against Detroit last week and had a great game. Carson Wentz is having an even better season this year for Philadelphia and looks like a solid answer for them.
Both teams have the same record so this will be equal but it will all come down to their defenses. Carolina's defense has looked great on the pass rush and is tied for third in the league for sacks at 17. Philadelphia missed key players on defense but they still managed to win against Arizona. Their relentless effort will most likely show up again tonight.

Already at Week Five and the action does not stop there. Tonight's game in Tampa Bay should be a good game with Jameis Winston looking good at QB and New England will try to get back on track after dropping a game to another NFC South team, Carolina.

This week starts off in Green Bay as the rival Chicago visits for their first meeting of the season. Green Bay looks good this year and could win this game, but never underestimate any opponent.
Everyone else this week is trying to get their first win and silence all the critics for their play and coaching. Some things cannot be controlled though, like a 61 yard field goal winning the game. That is just crazy and I hope to see more crazy this week.
Sunday, Oct. 1
Cincinnati at Cleveland- Someone in Ohio is getting their first win, unless they tie (knock on wood!). Let's see who reigns supreme in this one.
Afternoon Game: It's a toss-up between Philadelphia at Los Angeles Chargers and Oakland at Denver. If you want to see how Philadelphia is doing after their big win last week, check up on them while they are in Los Angeles.
If you want an evenly matched game, Oakland and Denver are your best bet. It all depends but at least the afternoon is fun enough to keep you occupied.
Monday, Oct. 2
Monday is going to be fun with Kansas City looking good this year and everyone can see that again. Washington is decent too and this could test Kansas City's great start.
Another big victory for rookies all over the NFL in Week Three, with record-breaking performances and great displays of character. Read more about how great this week was to some awesome rookies.

Cook scored his first touchdown in his career last Sunday. His performance in that game was characterized by how much better he was after contact ans ended up rushing 82 out of 97 yards after contact (Pro Football Focus). Cook is second in the entire league in rushing yards with 288 and this is the first time since the AFL-NFL merger where rookies are 1-2 through three weeks (ESPN Stats & Info).
Stats vs. New York Giants:
Field Goals Made Percentage: 66.7%
Longest Field Goal: 61 Yards
In just a short time this rookie kicker became the biggest star in Philadelphia with one swift motion. His game-winning kick on Sunday inspired joy in Philadelphia fans all over and his kick just so happened to be 61 yards, so there was no pressure at all! His kick happens to be the longest in team history and things are starting on good terms with Elliott and his new team.
Stats vs. New England:
Passing Yards: 301
Longest Pass Play: 35
Touchdown (s): 2
Completion Percentage: 66.7%
Rushing Yards: 41
Not only did DeShaun Watson get close to pulling off a win against the New England Patriots, but he impressed everyone off the field with his generousity. If you checked last week, Watson won his first NFL game on his first career start, which gave him a check for that performance. What he did with that money was donate it to the cafeteria workers at the stadium who were affected by Hurricane Harvey. His act of kindness shows that good can happen and he could be the guy that Houston needs to lead their team.
Stats vs. New Orleans:
Receiving Yards: 101
Longest Reception: 37
Average Yards Per Reception: 11.2
McCaffrey shined this week in a different position than usual, wide receiver. With Cam Newton's favorite target, Greg Olsen, out for weeks and no. 1 receiver Kelvin Benjamin suffering a knee injury during the game, McCaffrey had to step up in this game. He sure did step up and had a good performance for an offense that struggled in this game. He will most likely step up for the next few games since neither will be back soon enough and that means we could be close to seeing his first NFL touchdown.
I just really like football.
