Week 11 Takeaways

Week 11 is over and we still have no idea who the best team in the league is. Is it the 9-1 Patriots and 49ers who have the best record, or is it the 8-2 Ravens who have absolutely smacked their opponents these past few weeks? I’m not sure. But what I do know is I still can’t buy into what the Vikings are trying to sell me. Also, I can’t write about this past week without mentioning Myles Garrett being an absolute dumbass.

Let’s dive in, shall we? Continue reading “Week 11 Takeaways”

Week 11 NFL Power Rankings

Wow, Week 10 was really, really good.

We might have saw the game of the year on Monday night (even if it was ugly at times), Lamar Jackson continued to dominate, and the Dolphins, Jets, Browns, AND Falcons won… oh yeah, and we had some football in the snow. Week 11 began with some unfortunate theatrics that will have repercussions on how this season ends.

These rankings were challenging for me. I had difficulty with the top teams, and I had difficulty with the sudden abundance of 5-4 teams. You might disagree with where I put everyone, but that’s the beauty of these rankings: they’re just my opinion!

Let me know what you think! Continue reading “Week 11 NFL Power Rankings”

Who to Watch (November 15 – November 21)

Welcome back to Who to Watch!

What a week, huh?

Last night was saw the Browns win a huge game to keep their season alive… only for it to be overshadowed by the actions of Myles Garrett (reports say he won’t see the field until the 2020 season). The Houston Astros were reported to be orchestrating a massive sign-stealing operation, specifically during their World Series season in 2017; those involved could include Alex Cora and Carlos Beltran, now both managers in the MLB. In lighter baseball news, Mike Trout and Cody Bellinger were named MVPs, while Justin Verlander and Jacob de Grom were named Cy Youngs. Andrew Wiggins is playing like an actual star, and Paul George made his season debut last night. The Chiefs lost their 4th game of 2019, and the Raiders (yes, the Raider) are currently the second Wild Card team in the AFC. In the NFC, we saw the game of the season on Monday night as the Seahawks beat the 49ers at the buzzer in OT. There’s a lot going on, and a lot of fun stuff to be watching as a fan… here’s what we’re keeping our eyes on Continue reading “Who to Watch (November 15 – November 21)”

Week 10 NFL Power Rankings

Another week in November, another week closer to the playoffs.

Since we last met, home teams went on a huge run, with only the Dallas Cowboys winning on the road out of every game played on Sunday and Monday (and to start Week 10). For a season where road teams had been rather successful, it was a regression to the mean. Enough statistics, onto the football.

Biggest rise: Baltimore Ravens, Los Angeles Chargers (up 4 spots)

Biggest fall: Cleveland Browns (down 4 spots)

Who to Watch (November 8 – November 14)

Sports, sports, sports… I though about making it sound catchy like a jingle, but I’m not that talented.

Welcome back folks, here’s what’s been going down the past few days:

Load management: love it or hate it, its part of the status quo in the NBA, but to the dismay of many; the New England Patriots lost, which of course means their dynasty is over yet again; Eric Bledsoe tried the classic “dribble straight out of bounds instead of passing the ball inbounds” play; Tony Snell is amazing; Gordon Hayward is back; LeBron James is NOT washed (congrats, Kerm); Anthony Davis is going to the Chicago Bulls (sorry, Kerm); the Cleveland Browns suck; Adam Vinatieri was sabotaged; the Miami Dolphins finally won a game!

It was a fun week, as always.

Now to next week. Continue reading “Who to Watch (November 8 – November 14)”
