The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / 7 Things We Learned from Week 4 of the NFL Season

7 Things We Learned from Week 4 of the NFL Season

Publish Date: 10/05/2016
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

1). Jimmy Graham is back:ย The Seahawks tight end had his second straight 100-yard receiving day and displayed scary-good chemistry with Wilson on two expert touch passes.

2). The Colts offensive line is as bad as we thought:ย  Indianapolis’ offense is fundamental, irreversibly broken. The offensive line — the source of so many disagreements between management who feel the talent is there but not coached, and the coaches who feel like the talent is coached but not talent(ed) — is not allowing for any sort of rhythm. Andrew Luck was sacked six times on Sunday and when he wasn’t uncomfortably rolling away from pressure, his receivers did not seem to break into empty space.

3). Don’t look now, but Rex Ryan’s defense is playing well:ย Rex is getting incredible performances from his defensive players. Jerry Hughes is one of the best pass rushers in football. Zach Brown has been everywhere the last few weeks, with 18 tackles, three for a loss, QB hits and a sack Sunday. Journeymen like Lorenzo Alexander are playing like quality starters. This was the first time the Patriots were shut out in the history of Gillette Stadium. Just maybe Rex is getting the shape going in the right direction in Buffalo.

4). Matt Ryan to Julio Jones is special: Matt Ryan and Julio Jones became the first quarterback-receiver tandem of the Super Bowl era to combine for at least 500 passing yards and 300 receiving yards, per NFL Research. Severely outplaying last year’s MVP, Ryan built on his NFC Offensive Player of the Month honors to assume the top spot in the quarter-pole MVP discussion. On top of that, a loud resounding statement was made by the Falconsย with their 48 point performance against the Panthers.

5). Terrelle Pryor is special: He has turned into a big-time receiving threat and can fill in at QB. The Browns have a special talent on their hands, hopefully, they won’t screw him up. I think that the Browns are on the right track, but it is going to take awhile, so Browns fans and management be patient.

6). The Steelers are a different team with le’Veonย Bell: The Steelers destroyed the Chiefs and the difference was Bell who in my opinion is the best RB in the NFL.

7).ย Jameis Winston’s sophomore slump continues in Tampa: Winston threw two first-half interceptions to Aqib Talib, both of which translated into Broncos touchdowns, and never regained his confidence in the pocket. The second-year starter looked skittish against a vaunted Denver pass rush and was sacked five times.
