NFL Week 13 Takeaways: Hill is the best WR, Ryans COTY, Love Breaks out, 49ers are the best, Eagles in Trouble, LaPorta on fire in Detroit, Trubisky is bad

Week 13 Takeaways

1) Tyreek Hill is the best receiver in the NFL

Hill has had an exceptional start to his eight-year as a pro with the Dolphins, amassing 93 catches for 1,481 yards and 12 touchdowns through nine games of their 9-3 start – representing sixth, first, and sixth all-time seasons, respectively! That achievement would make Hill an impressive performer, even by his lofty standards.

Hill is on track to pass 2,000 yards for the year and continues to outwit defenders.

What surprises me is Hill’s steady accumulation of these numbers. Even as defenses take steps to restrain his threat each week, he still manages to slip through corners, break coverage and make play after play after play – and that was proven Sunday again with two long scoring drives consisting of one 78-yarder caught by Hill himself that turned into a footrace and another 60-yarder that Hill fielded as though it were an underthrow!

Hill is the most explosive player in the NFL.

2) Demeco Ryansย  should be the coach of the year

DeMeco Ryans’ defense proved its mettle once again on Sunday when it mattered most, deep into the fourth quarter of their 22-17 victory.

Stroud managed 274 yards, one touchdown, and an impressive triple-digit passer rating, but his offense only scored their final points 44 seconds into the fourth quarter – picking up only two first downs after that point!

While Stroud deserves credit for leading his Texans to the win on Sunday, reaching that mark was due to more than just one factor – for veteran safety Jimmie Ward from San Francisco, who came over with Ryans, it starts with how quickly their program has come together under Ryans’s system and beliefs. The Texans have a franchise Quarterback and a Head coach that looks elite. The Texans look set to contend for the next decade.

3) Jordan Love breaks out

Love has looked better and better with each passing week, but the win over Kansas City on Sunday night shows everybody Love and the Packers are for real. Are they a Super Bowl contender? Not yet, but they may be by the time the playoffs get here, and the Packers will be in those playoffs.

4) The 49ers are the best team in the NFL as of now

The 49ers toyed with the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday in Philadelphia. The 49ers are the most complete team in the NFL, and they have a franchise Quarterback in Brick Purdy, who put on a show yesterday in Philadelphia. The Niners are scary good, and barring injuries, they have to be the favorites to win the Super Bowl.

5) The Eagles are in trouble

The Middle of the defense struggled against the Niners’ attack with starters Nakobe Dean and Zach Cunningham sidelined due to injuries, while red zone offense also struggled despite recent improvement – only going 2-for-4 against San Francisco, who went 4-for-4 overall in red zone offense Sunday was key difference-maker; so quick fixes must come soon in preparation of a trip to Dallas next. The playcalling needs to be more aggressive than it has been and if it’s not the Eagles could see themselves being caught by the red-hot-Cowboys.

6) Mitch Trubisky is bad

Sunday’s loss against a now three-win Cardinals team certainly suggested that Trubisky does sick. One week after posting a 400-yard outing and beating Cincinnati, all the momentum built from that performance evaporated amid two lengthy severe weather delays, nine penalties, and poor execution on both sides of the ball. When the Steelers did move the ball, however, they struggled to turn yards into points, scoring only on one of three trips into the red zone compared to all three touchdowns scored by the Arizona Cardinals. Problems escalated quickly as starting guard Isaac Seumalo left early with a shoulder injury. At the same time, QB Kenny Pickett was knocked out midway through the second quarter and finished wearing a boot on his right ankle – something they cannot afford with Thursday Night Football against New England just around the corner.ย  The Steelers cannot win with Mitch behind center.

7) Sam LaPorta is getting it done in Detroit

After another outstanding performance by rookie tight end Sam LaPorta, he demonstrated no fear in taking center stage. With nine catches for 140 yards and one touchdown – his seventh game with at least five receptions was tied for second-most by any rookie tight end in NFL history – no stage appears too big for this standout rookie tight end. The Lions may have gotten the steal of the 2023 Draft!
