If you missed the game on Monday night between the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs, you missed one of the best games of the season. It’s becoming increasingly likely that this could end up being a Super Bowl matchup in just a few months, but the Saints might have some other plans. The Rams are one of the favourites to come out of the NFC, along with the Saints, and the Chiefs have one of the best offenses in the AFC. It was clear early in the season that the Week 11 game between these two teams would be the most entertaining game of the regular season, and it definitely lived up to the hype.

More often than not, the primetime games (Thursday night, Sunday night, Monday night) don’t live up to the hype, especially TNF and those Color Rush jerseys. While some are better than others, it’s impossible to forget those horrendous Jaguars and Titans uniforms.
Luckily, last Thursday’s matchup between the Rams and Vikings didn’t feature their Color Rush uniforms and instead actually provided football fans with an entertaining game between two of the most talented teams in the NFC. Both teams had been having very different seasons leading up to this point. The Rams were 3-0, surrendering just 36 points over those three games while also averaging 34 points scored per game.

We’re just three weeks into the season and some big storylines are already starting to unfold. Rookie quarterbacks are already starting to make an impact on their teams. First, in Week 1 it was Sam Darnold winning his first career start. In Week 3, Baker Mayfield saw his first real taste of NFL action on Thursday night when he entered the game for the Browns. After Tyrod Taylor got off to a slow start, Hue Jackson decided to make the quarterback switch and it paid off big time. Mayfield finished the game with 201 yards on 17 of 23 attempts, and although he didn’t throw for a touchdown, he still (technically) found a way to get into the endzone.
He did it again. After being held to just 10 points through three quarters of the AFC Championship Game, it was looking like the Jaguars were about to pull off the improbable upset over the Patriots. Turns out Tom Brady had other plans, and not even a broken hand or some stitches could slow him down. Down by 10 in the 4th quarter, it was time for Brady to get the comeback started.
We’re inching closer and closer to the Super Bowl, and the games keep getting better. It all kicked off with the Eagles hosting the Falcons on Saturday afternoon. Without Wentz, nobody really gave Philly much of a chance to move on, but the Eagles embraced their new underdog role this weekend.
