Nfl prediction week 6
Remember this time last season when everyone was complaining that the NFL was boring? That feels a very, very long time ago. Fourteen quarterbacks threw for more than 300 yards in week four, with five of them going over 400 - that just wasn't happening a year ago. What that means is that even the teams low down this list have been pretty fun to watch. Actually, you can argue every team in the NFL has at least one things that makes them interesting right now. These are truly blessed times. So let's get right to it, here are the Fun Power Rankings for week four... 32. San Francisco 49ers (-) This feels a little harsh on the Niners, who actually played acceptably against the Chargers. CJ Beathard almost did enough to pull off an unlikely win, but it’s just hard to shake the disappointment of Jimmy Garoppolo’s ACL tear. Kyle Shanahan will be in Beathard’s ear to stop him making plays like the third down scramble which knocked him out of the game for a few … [Read more...] about NFL Fun Power Rankings, week four: Watch out Kansas City, there are Bears on the loose
Nate Davis USA TODAY Published 12:54 AM EDT Sep 7, 2018 PHILADELPHIA — Thursday night began with a "special Philly" kind of moment as the Eagles unfurled the first Super Bowl banner in franchise history. Later, the "Philly Special" returned to help catapult Philadelphia past the Atlanta Falcons 18-12 in the NFL's 2018 regular-season opener. On a night when he struggled noticeably, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan's final pass to Julio Jones in the end zone fell incomplete, producing a similar outcome to Atlanta's divisional playoff heartbreaker at Lincoln Financial Field in January.

Mike Jones USA TODAY Published 12:41 p.m. UTC Sep 6, 2018 The anxiety-riddled question looms, even with future Hall of Famers still casting long shadows over the NFL and its premier position. It’s not enough to simply enjoy the present greatness of living legends: Brady, Brees, Roethlisberger, Rodgers, or other mainstay quarterbacks like Eli Manning, Philip Rivers and Matt Ryan. Football fans aren’t wired that way. They always have to ask, “Who’s got next?” The thirst for the next crop of elite quarterback talent never wanes. That’s because the last decade of drafts has produced meager yields. Cam Newtons and Russell Wilsons are scarce. Disappointments thanks to faulty evaluations, ill fits and career-altering/threatening injuries abound. As the 2018 season opens Thursday with Atlanta at defending Super Bowl champ Philadelphia, a ripple of optimism has surfaced. It started last season as 2016 draft headliners Carson Wentz and Jared Goff posted … [Read more...] about A new wave of young quarterbacks could reshape the NFL’s landscape
Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz USA TODAY Published 4:01 p.m. UTC Sep 5, 2018 With all 32 NFL teams starting with a clean slate, Week 1 is full of mysteries. The prevailing trends of last season have given way to fresh opportunities. And while some players and teams might find themselves in similar positions as the ones they faced last season, an offseason full of changes could produce a sea change for several others. Here are eight questions that will shape Week 1: 1. Will Khalil Mack attack the Packers? The Bears are understandably excited to put their new defensive star to work against their rival after engineering a stunning trade on Saturday and giving him a six-year, $141 million extension. First-year coach Matt Nagy, however, said Chicago will be "smart" in utilizing Mack as the pass rusher learns a new scheme. For the Bears to beat the Packers for just the third time since 2011, generating pressure on Aaron Rodgers will be key. The two-time MVP has a … [Read more...] about Eight questions for NFL Week 1: Will Khalil Mack attack Packers?
