  • Chicago missed last second FG to lose to Chargers
  • Mitch Trubisky struggles

  • GB takes down Mahomes-less Chiefs
  • Impressed by Matt Moore - Does this influence Mahomes decision…
  • Difficult to find GB losses at this point… even though I think they’re overrated
  • 5 of last 8 are on the road. Vikings need to finish strong and get some help. Maybe the GB road struggles will resurface.
