1) The Bengals are still in need of front office and coaching
The Bengals play calling was conservative; the clock management was an embarrassment. Unfortunately, the more things change, the more they stay the same. The scouting department is understaffed and constantly missing on. An offensive lineman is killing this organization. The sad truth is they value skill position players more than linemen, and that’s not how you win championships.
A depleted Ravens team upset the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night because Jackson is one of the most outstanding athletes to play quarterback in NFL history. He still needs to be more consistent passing the ball, which may be more of an issue with the scheme and not Jackson.
The Cowboys pissed away a chance to beat Tampa in week one; they didn’t let it happen against the Chargers. What makes this even more prominent is that they did it on the road in Los Angeles. If the defense keeps improving, they will win the NFC East easily.
There looks to be no easy fix on defense for the Chiefs, and they are going to have to score 30 points to have a chance to win games. They can do that, but a Super Bowl run is hard to imagine with this defense.
A week ago, people were saying that the Titans had been overrated, move forward, and a win on the road has people buzzing about the Titans being a Super Bowl contender. They have Henry, Tannehill, and Julio Jones, to name a few; they were always a Super Bowl contender. A week ago, people raved about the Steelers; they followed up with a home loss to the Raiders. Week 1 is just that it’s one week, and nothing is ever decided in week 1.
Kyler Murray is playing at a Pro Bowl level so far, the defense is a huge concern, and that’s why I would say they are NOT a Super Bowl threat, but they will make the playoffs.
Tom Brady threw 5 TD passes while putting 48 points on the Falcons. A banged-up Bucs secondary missing three integral players intercepted Matt Bryan 3 times on Sunday. The Bucs barring injuries, will only get better.
Now, Sam Darnold will prove that he was the right quarterback over the remainder of his career, but Zach Wilson is not. Wilson somehow threw four interceptions in his first ten pass attempts; the Jets are a poorly run organization, and picking Wilson was stupid as the kid is not an NFL quarterback.
They are when playing against young quarterbacks, and with Zach Wilson and the Jets up next, the Broncos are looking at a 3-0 start. If Bradley Chubb and Von Miller get on the field healthy simultaneously, the Broncos could be a darkhorse Super Bowl contender.
The Rams struggled in all 3 phases of the game at one time or another during a 27-24 road win over the Indianapolis Colts. If they can become more consistent, the defense will be dominant, and Matthew Stafford, if healthy, can lead this team on a deep playoff run.
Carr played without running back Josh Jacobs behind a banged-up offensive line and was extremely sharp, going 28-of-37 for 382 yards and two TDs. A win over the Ravens last week and a cross country trip win at Pittsburgh on a short week should prove that the Raiders are a possible playoff team.
The Jets blew this one as the last two weeks have shown with solid coaching and a dependable line. Darnold is an NFL starting-caliber quarterback. It looks like the issue all along in New York was not Darnold; it was the Jets organization who were inept in inputting the proper pieces around Darnold.
