·Tua- 5 straight wins. That’s all this guy does. Oh, and completes passes. Last 3 weeks: 81%, 87%, and 84%. Tua is the 3rd starting QB for the Phins in their history to post a 100+ QB rating in at least 4 consecutive games. Marino, Pennington, and now Tua. Now, because of the weird seeding in the AFC, the Phins are only 2.5 games out of 1st place in the conference.
·Brady/Gronk- Think Brady missed Gronk? It was kind of an uneven performance for the Bucs if you take the Gronk TD’s out of it…its just crazy to think they’ve now linked up for 104 touchdowns over their career.
·Lions- How can you not cheer for this team?! Dan Campbell and his team made it look like they had just won a playoff game if you saw the locker room footage, they are just adorable. Definition of lovable losers, so happy to see them get a win.
·Justin Herbet- What did I say?! When he’s at his best, he’s one of the best. Problem is, its an every other week thing with him and this team. Last 6 games: Loss, win, loss, win, loss, win. In that order. So up and down. But this week they were way up. Herbs was 26/25 317 and 3 TD’s.
·Trevor Lawrence- 16/28 145 no scores. He’s simply not progressing and he’s making all of us look bad for talking about him like he was Peyton Manning.
·Vic Fangio- Played too aggressive against the Chiefs, respecting your opponent is one thing, but letting them psyche you out is another. If you sustain a 10+ play drive in the first half and your defense is playing well, you have to reward your team with points. 10-6 at half is a lot different than 10-3 when you’re on the road.
·Jalen Hurts- I thought Minshew looked really really sharp with the Eagles, it almost makes you think twice about how valuable Hurts is to this team. Minshew led the Eagles to 7-straight scoring drives, he connected on his first 11 passes…14-15 in the first half.
·Raiders- Not that we had a lot of faith left in LV but they let Washington come in and beat them on their home turf. Now the Raiders are 6-6, in a muddled pack of teams vying for seeding in the NFC. A win would’ve put them tied for 7th, instead they sit @ 10 now.
·Brandon Aiyuk- You are dead to me. No Deebo, what does he do? 3 catches. 55 yards.
