Enough dilly-dallying! TO THE GAMES!
The Gruden-led (rhymes with rudderless) Oakland squad is not doing very well. Hell, when your te has a whopping 30% of your qb’s 10 passing TD’s, something’s gotta change. That change took the form of trading their lone offensive threat. Wha? Now because of injuries the Raiders are staring at the possibility of Dwayne Harris and Seth Roberts being their starting wideouts. Tis not a wonder they’ve scored but 147 points all year long. The Cards have something to say about that though. They’ve managed a paltry 124 total for an average of 13.7 per game. Still, they’ve got a rook qb that’s doing the usual struggly thing. Rb Johnson seems to be heating up, having got past the century mark in total yards the last two games. I can’t see him regressing vs. this lot. Christian Kirkwood would appear to be a rising talent, so one might say that there are pieces in place for the Cards.
Here’s your hot AFC West action. Careful, it might burn up your chosen media device! Joey Bosa is scheduled to return, giving the Chargers something to bother Keenum about. On t’udder side, Chubbs and Miller are pressuring and sacking like no one’s business. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the reality that L.A. is 7-2 and only one game behind K.C.
Much like the Steelers/Jags tilt from the earlier slate, this was to be a lovely game to take in. Like the Jags, Philly just didn’t deliver. One can’t help but think that they’ll reel off 5 straight wins at some point but maybe not this week. If they somehow get the W they’ve got the Giants next and maybe they start rolling.
Polish your eyebulbs, there’s more work to do.
