1). The Cincinnati Bengals dynasty of mediocrity is dead- It looks like the Bengals streak of 5 straight playoff appearances is over. A.J. Green and Gio Bernard seems to be lost possibly for the entire season. The Offensive line is in shambles, and the defense has gone from being one of the best in the NFL to one of the worst in just one season.
2). The Minnesota Vikings are a tough team- The Vikings have suffered as many injuries as anybody in the NFL. Instead of using it as an excuse to lose, the Vikings have circled the wagons and fought. They face a big game in Detroit on Thursday, win the game, and the Vikings will be in control of the NFC North.
3). The Kansas City Chiefs are good, but they are not a Super Bowl contender- The Chiefs may make the playoffs, but that is as far as this team can go. To say the offense is limited would be a massive understatement.
4). The Tennessee Titans are still a year away- It seems every time the Titans have a chance to prove they are a playoff contender, they come up short. This team is still very dangerous, but two losses to the Colts have shown that they are not quite there yet.
5). The Rams picked the wrong QB- The Rams are excellent on defense and can run the ball. The problem with the Rams is the lack of any semblance of a passing game. QB Jared Goff struggled in the preseason, so it should come as no surprise that he struggled Sunday in his first start. The Rams picked the wrong QB to lead this team.
6). The Seattle Seahawks are on a roll- The Seahawks dominated a very good Philadelphia Eagles team yesterday. The defense still may be the best in the NFL, and the weakness which is their offensive line has slowly gotten better each week.
