The Steelers are just fine without Le’Veon Bell

It always sucks when a game with so much potential turns out to be an absolute dud. A game between the 6-2 Carolina Panthers and 5-2-1 Pittsburgh Steelers looked like it was going to be a competitive matchup. Yeah, that didn’t happen. Even when Thursday Night Football has what looks like a good game, it still ends up sucking. And that’s why Thursday Night Football is a waste of time. 9 times out of 10, you will be disappointed. I guess watching TNF is like the equivalent of being a Jets fan.

Nick Mullens had a perfect NFL debut

If you hadn’t heard of Nick Mullens before last Thursday, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve heard of him by now. The former Southern Miss Golden Eagle made his NFL debut for the San Fransisco 49ers on Thursday night against the Raiders, in a game where Mullens wasn’t given much of a chance. Mullens was signed as an undrafted free agent after the 2017 Draft, and had never attempted a pass in an NFL game heading into his first start. While Jimmy G is still the future of the 49ers, Mullens has definitely made a name for himself in his debut.

Andrew Luck and the Colts will win the AFC South

While the Jacksonville Jaguars are the easiest team to talk about in a pretty forgettable AFC South division, the Indianapolis Colts are a team that you should keep an eye on as we enter the second half of the season. Now, I realize it’s crazy to say that a 3-5 team is one to keep an eye on, but the AFC South is up for grabs now that the Jaguars have fallen apart, and a healthy Andrew Luck could be all the Colts need to make the playoffs.

The Jaguars need to move on from Blake Bortles

Add Justin Tucker to the list of kickers who have missed easy kicks this season. The Ravens kicker was 222 for 222 on extra point attempts in his career, so surely he would be able to convert the extra point to tie the game against the Saints, right?

Eli Manning’s time with the Giants is nearing an end

As Eli Manning’s career is winding down, he’s starting to look more and more like his older brother Peyton did by the end of his. The only issue is that Eli doesn’t have an absolutely stacked defense to carry him to one last Super Bowl win before he hangs up the cleats for good. Instead, Manning is caught in the middle of a team torn between trying to rebuild and trying to compete in the NFC East. The Giants are not a good team, but they’ve committed money to some elite players, most notably Odell Beckham, Jr. They also have a star rookie running back in Saquon Barkley who already looks deserving of Todd Gurley and Le’Veon Bell comparisons.

Despite those few bright spots, things in New York are getting worse by the week. Last week, Beckham decided to take the offense into his own hands and throw the ball himself.

The Highs and Lows of the NFL

Being a kicker in the NFL is not an easy job, just ask Zane Gonzalez or Daniel Carlson. Both kickers are looking for a new home since being released after less than impressive performances in Week 2. Gonzalez missed 4 kicks during the Browns 21-18 loss, including 2 extra point attempts and a potential game-tying field goal late in the game. Carlson had an equally tough game, missing three attempts including two in overtime in the Vikings 29-29 tie against the Packers. Let this serve as a friendly reminder that kicking a football is not as easy as it looks.  Read more

The Cleveland Browns had their best Week 1 in over a decade

The NFL season is officially in full swing, and that means that I’m back to giving you the weekly recap of some of the major headlines from the week that was. So don’t worry if you miss anything, I got you covered. Without wasting any more time, let’s get into it.

As crazy as it sounds, the Browns game was actually very entertaining to watch last week. After an 0-16 season, I wasn’t expecting to say that in Week 1, especially with Baker Mayfield still as the backup in Cleveland. Now look, I realize it ended in a tie, and yes the Browns had more than their fair share of chances to win this game, but despite everything, this is their best start to a season since 2004.
