The NFL has been hit with the COVID-19 virus. The Tennessee Titans have had at least 8 players and staff test positive. Cam Newton of the New England Patriots also tested positive this week. With each passing day, we can only hold our collective breathe and hope all players stay health.
5 Things We Learned About Week 4 In the NFL:
5) The Dallas Cowboys are a mess:
The Cowboys lost to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, 49-38. Over the past three weeks Dallas has given up 39,38, and 49 points. Jerry Jones selected Cee Dee Lamb with the 17th overall draft pick in the 2020 draft. Lamb has the potential to be a great wide receive, but this team didn’t need offense. They needed defense. Jones would rather make headlines then build a team on both sides of the ball.
4) Carson Wentz is a franchise quarterback:
Last week at practice, Carson Wentz had 1 healthy wide receiver for the entire week. The Philadelphia Eagles went into San Francisco and beat a good 49ers team, 25-20. Wentz playing with practice squad players, at the receiver position, ran for an 11-yard touchdown and connected on a 42-yard pass play with Travis Fulgahm. If the Eagles get healthy, Wentz could lead them to the playoffs again.
3) Packers offense is on another level:
The Green Bay Packers are 4-0 after defeated the Atlanta Falcons Monday night, 30-16.
The Packers are ranked:
- 2nd in total yards, 455 per game.
- 3rd in passing yards, 286 per game.
- 4th in rushing yards, 150.8 per game.
- 1st in points, 38 per game.
They accomplished these stats without Devante Adams for most of the season. Matt LaFluer and Aaron Rodgers are on the same page and this is a scary thought for the rest of the NFL. Rodgers has 13 touchdown passes and 0 interceptions. The Packers have a + 51-point differential.
2) The Kansas City Chiefs set an NFL record:
The Chiefs won an ugly game over the New England Patriots, 26-10. Kansas City became the first team to go 4-0, for 4 straight years. No team has ever done this in the history of the NFL. Patrick Mahomes has gone from a gun slinger to a quarterback who takes what the defense gives him. He spreads the ball around to all his teammates. Clyde Edwards-Helaire has been the perfect fit at running back.
1) Brady and Bucs:
Tampa Bay was trailing the Los Angeles Chargers 24-7 before the Buccaneers outscored LA, 31-7. The Bucs won 38-31 and Tom Brady threw for 5 touchdown passes. Brady’s passer rating has improved in every game he has played this season. This team is a legitimate threat to win the NFC.
The Browns are the only team in the NFL that averages over 200 rushing yards per game. Cleveland has 8 rushing touchdowns on the season.
The Indianapolis Colts have not allowed over 300 yards in a game this season.
The Baltimore Ravens have averaged at least 100 rushing yards in 27 straight games.
