Around the League

  • Buffalo is 3-0 following a win v CIN (NYJ/NYG)
  • Giants win over a missed FG from Bucs
  • Atlanta loses close one
  • Carolina explodes without Cam
  • NO staves off Seattle - Teddy Bridgewater does enough to win
  • SF is 3-0 following beating PIT (0-3)
  • Cleveland botches end of game

The North Face

  • Greenbay Edges Denver - Their Defense appears to be real. Can the offense follow suit? Big game this week on a short week against Philadelphia
  • Detroit Upsets the Eagles (27-24) - We said they’d be better than people thought. We appear to be right.
  • Chicago - Playing at recording

  • Great rebound first drive
  • Dalvin Cook is special
  • OL Appreciation Day
  • Irv Smith Jr. Breakout Game - Does he carve out a bigger role with the athleticism that was displayed?
  • Is there any concerns with Stefon Diggs / Adam Thielen taking a backseat to Dalvin Cook going forward?


  • Defense starts fast
  • No Anthony Barr, No Problem - Eric Wilson fills in beautifully
  • Mike Hughes, Welcome Back
  • Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter cause havoc (9 combined pressures)

Chicago Predictions

  • Something like 3-15 in their last 18 trips to Chicago.
