Biggest Takeaway in the AFC East
Jason- Josh McCown will continue to put the Jets in games where they have a chance to win games. That’s what he does… He’s been doing it since Chicago
Dan- Jay Cutler should’ve never come out of retirement.
Dylan- The Bills might just be for real- as long as they have enough offense they should be able to compete for a playoff spot.
Zach- The Patriots defense is a serious problem.
Biggest Takeaway in the AFC North
Jason- Deshone Kizer is playing BAD football right now… he needs to turn it around before they bench him for good and he is just another Cleveland QB
Dan- Cincy is looking a lot better than we thought. Two close losses to 2 very solid teams in Houston and Green Bay and a blowout over a lowly rival.
Dylan- Man the Ravens’ offense is bad. Their defense will have to carry them if they want to see the playoffs.
Zach- Cincy…just because you beat the Browns does not mean you are good. A real test will be next against the Bills.
Biggest Takeaway in the AFC South
Jason- The Colts defense is horrible. Whether or not Andrew Luck comes back in the near future, it can’t save their season.
Dan- Tennessee is going to need Mariota if they want a shot at the division.
Dylan- This is the most inconsistent division of all time. Jags nearly put up 50 in London and then lose to the Jets? Texans are embarrassed by the Jags and then put up 57 on the Titans? (By the way Jason the Colts have had much worse defenses, if Andrew Luck is at full strength soon, the way this division is playing the Colts can still compete)
Zach- I knew Deshaun Watson would be good in the future…but not this good this quick.
Biggest Takeaway in the AFC West
Jason- The Raiders playoff hopes are slim to none. They better pray for an injury. Also Dan… let’s not get carried away
Dan- Hopefully Derek Carr doesn’t turn into the next Andrew Luck.
Dylan- LET’S QUIT OVERREACTING! The Chiefs always get off to a fast start and the Raiders will be fine. This division will come down to the wire.
Zach- Alex Smith is the best QB in the AFC West…never thought I would say that.
Biggest Takeaway in the NFC East
Jason- The Cowboys had a bad week, they are still the clear favorites to win the division
Dan- The two most unexpected winless teams play next week and it will prove almost nothing.
Dylan- The tides have turned. This division is now controlled by the Eagles, and maybe the Redskins too.
Zach- The NFC East is the Eagles’ to lose.
Biggest Takeaway in the NFC North
Jason- Minnesota has no shot at the playoffs without Dalvin Cook or a miracle.
Dan- Minnesota needs to get healthy or else they will have no shot at the playoffs.
Dylan- The Lions and Packers are rolling, but the Vikes and Bears seasons are probably done.
Zach- It’s about time the Bears fire up Mitchell Trubisky for next week. Bring on the future.
Biggest Takeaway in the NFC South
Jason- The Saints surprised me… still not a believer yet
Dan- There are A LOT of inconsistent teams in the NFL this year, but Carolina might be the worst.
Dylan- The Panthers win was a fluke. They’ll be under .500 by November.
Zach- Cam Newton had a good week…but it doesn’t change the fact that he’s an average starting quarterback in the NFL right now.
Biggest Takeaway in the NFC West
Jason- The Rams was a team I was wrong on. This offense is scary
Dan- As Gurley takes more of a Leveon Bell type roll he becomes more and more dangerous.
Dylan- Rams vs. Seahawks this week! The winner is the clear division favorite.
Zach- Jared Goff is the real deal. Another lesson to not judge a QB after his rookie season.
