Biggest Takeaway in the AFC East
Jason- The Patriots and the Bills are the only contenders. Let’s not get too high on the Jets.
Dylan- In any other division, I’d be worried about the Patriots. Not in the AFC East.
Dan- Out of all the surprises, the Jets being 3-2 and tied with New England is by far the biggest.
Zach- Jay Cutler robbed the Dolphins of $10 million.
Biggest Takeaway in the AFC North
Jason- The Steelers have some major holes… one might be their QB.
Dylan- The Bengals are right back in the race. Only 1 GB and the Steelers and Ravens have major holes
Dan- The Steelers have way too much talent to not win this division. These early season hiccups won’t affect much.
Zach- Ben Roethlisberger should have retired last offseason. As they say, once you think about retirement, you are already retired.
Biggest Takeaway in the AFC South
Jason- The Jaguars defense is good off and on paper. (@Dylan… check out our podcasts on YouTube)
Dylan- This division is a crazy. I don’t believe the Jags are a playoff team. Deshaun Watson has a couple of tough games @Seattle and @LA coming up. The Titans and Colts are hanging on.
Dan- I don’t see the Colts winning the division even with Luck.
Zach- DeShaun Watson is going to give Kareem Hunt a run for his money for Rookie of the Year.
Biggest Takeaway in the AFC West
Jason- The Raiders are one more game (before the bye) away from threatening to fail to make the playoffs.
Dylan- The Raiders are falling behind but should still be able to secure a playoff spot. No other team besides the division leaders and the Broncos are more talented.
Dan- Kansas City is for real but don’t be surprised to see them lose in the next few weeks. No NFL team is consistent.
Zach- The Raiders are not making the playoffs this year.
Biggest Takeaway in the NFC East
Jason- The Cowboys are from out of it. They are playing well and it’s just a matter of time. They have a ton more talent than the Eagles.
Dylan- The Eagles are pulling away. If they beat the Panthers Thursday, they are here to stay.
Dan- Carson Wentz is proving why he is the best QB from his draft class.
Zach- Welcome to New York Josh Rosen!
Biggest Takeaway in the NFC North
Jason- Trubisky was shaky… but optimism is there in Chicago and that’s more than they’ve had in a while
Dylan- A big road win for the Packers and loss for the Lions has the Packers pulling away. The Vikings are lucky to be in the race. Expect them to fall off quickly.
Dan- Trubisky wasn’t terrible and that is normally good enough for Chicago when it comes to quarterbacks. They haven’t had a solid one in forever.
Zach- Although Trubisky didn’t play the best and threw a bad interception late in the game, there were definitely positives to pull away from it.
Biggest Takeaway in the NFC South
Jason- The Bucs are playing good, but cannot wait much longer to start piling up wins.
Dylan- A couple of tough road wins put the Panthers at the top of the NFC South. If they can survive the next 4 weeks (Eagles, @Bears, @Bucs, Falcons), it’s easy riding for the rest of the way.
Dan- There were many flashbacks to MVP Cam these past two weeks.
Zach- I was hating on Cam earlier in the season, but the way he continues to win games is impressing me.
Biggest Takeaway in the NFC West
Jason- I’m still not certain the Rams are for real.
Dylan- The Rams lose a tough one that would have gave them a huge cushion in the NFC West. With the Jags, Cardinals, and Giants next, they should bounce back quickly.
Dan- Peterson is still washed up. He will not come close to making up for Johnson.
Zach- It’s about time we see a little regression from Jared Goff’s amazing start to the season. He’s played unreal this year.
Player of the Week
Jason- Aaron Rodgers
Dylan- AJ Green
Dan- Leonard Fournette
Zach- Carson Wentz
Surprise Player of the Week
Jason- Ben Roethlisberger
Dylan- Aaron Jones
Dan- Marlon Mack
Zach- Davante Adams (played amazing after a horrific injury last week)
Jason- The Texans and Jags battle it out and take 2 playoff spots while the Raiders, Ravens, Bills etc. look on from the outside
Dylan- None of the current AFC Division leaders win their division
Dan- Houston finishes 9-7.
Zach- The Eagles finish 13-3.
