Defensive Battle in the A, but Panthers Make More Impactful Plays
This game was a grind for both teams. The defenses were playing great and forced the two offenses to hit the quick routes and play safe. The Panthers struck first and capped off a long drive in the 2nd quarter on a well timed HB screen to Jonathan Stewart. The Falcons countered with a long drive of their own. It was 3rd and inches and Coach Quinn called a fake FB dive and flipped the ball to Freeman and he ran untouched 41 yards for the score. The Falcons started to get their feet wet and were moving the ball great right before the half and were on course to score when they threw a pick 6 in the red zone to Dezmen Southward who returned it 102 yards for the score. The only positive from that play was a blocked XP by Jalen Collins. The 2nd half was more of the same. Defensive stops left and right. The Falcons were eventually able to score on a screen of their own and took the lead 14-13. In the 4th quarter the panthers took the lead with a FG. Matt Ryan orchestrated a great drive and put the Falcons in FG range with under 3 minutes. The score was 16-14 and the Falcons lined up to take the lead with a FG, but the Panther's Benwikere came up with a clutch FG block and crushed the dreams of Falcon fans everywhere. Three TOs were remaining and the Falcons expected a run up the middle and planed accordingly. With dreams of getting the ball back Dan Quinn Blitzed both outside LBs into the middle, but George Farmer ran right up the middle untouched. Rookie MLB Deion Jones looked as surprised as the rest of us and whiffed on the tackle attempt and Farmer ran untouched 71 yards for the TD. Before that play Farmer was averaging just 2.3 yards per carry. It was a tough day for the Falcons after a hard fought game. To lose in the fashion that they did will likely hurt for the remainder of the season.
Huge Day for:
Kawann Short 5 tackles and 4 sacks
Devonta Freeman 1 rec. 59 yards and a TD/ 13 carries 68 yards and a TD
Great Game Anthony quina
Ravens Squeak by Raiders at Home
Ravens 14 - Raiders 10
It was a sloppy game where McFadden had a run that accumulated more total rushing yards on one run than the entire Ravens backfield all game. The Ravens D had two sack fumbles where they recovered none of them. Both teams struggled kicking but the Ravens came away with a W thanks to TD tosses to Forsett and Aiken
Let's roll that bean footage
SD ends 3 game losing streak and beats Brees and co at home 20-6.
Game was tied 3-3 at half and both defenses playing well with 2 ints a piece. SD's young pass rush was the difference in this game a Rookie Joey Bosa continued to vindicate SD's #3 overall pick on him as he racked up 2.5 sacks bringing his total to 8.5 on the season through 4 games!
In the second half Melvin Gordon took a 80 yarder to the house for the first TD in the game. SD defense would continue to squelch the saints and kept them from scoring a TD on the day.
Woodhead picked up SD's final score on about a 45 yard TD on what appeared to have been broken coverage.
The saints have a bye and will pick up the Panthers on the other side. SD heads to Oakland to take on division rivals and try to get back in the division race.
Melvin Gordon: 14-126-1
Brandon Cooks 5-80
Bosa 2.5 sacks
Jarius Byrd 10 tackles 1 int
Jets lose to Seahawks
It was one unlucky game for the Jets O line. Blocks were unsuccesful leading to many sacks on Fitzpatrick. Even though Fitz put up 200 + yards on the field today it wasnt enough to take this game away. Also owner David J is frustrated with his FG Kicker as he missed two key Fgs that could have perhaps kept them closer in the game. David left this comment "Kicking was horrible today, we needed those crucial 3 points". Not only did the Jets have a bad kicking day, Seatlle had a bad one too missing 3 crucial field goals this game. Thomas Rawls of the Seahawks put up steller numbers rushing for 186 yards on 16 Carries, He just could not be stopped this game. He was an absolute beast on the field.
Final score Jets 10 Sehawks 20
GG GMONEY 15
Tennessee Titans @ Houston Texans
This game came down to dropped balls by the Texans and well executed plays by the Titans. Murray had a field day too.
Good game ptsbx1 see you next time.
GG as well bro. Yes both our kickers need accuracy lessons big time. It seems like most of the league has the kicking down but through 4 games I can't seem to get better at it. Always WIDE LEFT. I feel like Scott Norwood back in the day with the Bills. Always a chess match playing your bro and GLTROTS Nockturn315
Thanks bro same to you. We need to work on the kicking. About to put my backup QB at kicker haha. Good luck rest of season as well
Cardinals win 26-23
JAGS WIN IN FASHION OVER COLTS
Heading into their first division game their was alot of optimism that this team was finally ready to compete within the division. Blake Bortles now with 2 years under his belt was ready to lead this team. Blake would lead the offense to over 300 yards passing and over 450 yards of total offense. 2nd year back TJ Yeldon would pitch in 122 yards on 19 carries. The defense would be led by Tashaun Gipson who had 6 tackles an 1 pick. This was a great way to head into the bye week as they look to get guys healthy an get ready for Chicago
Players of the Game:
Offense- Blake Bortles
Defense- Tashaun Gipson
