Week 3 TNF: Rams Edge Niners in Shootout

We were in for a pleasant surprise on a short week of football. So much for a defensive battle between NFC West rivals. I know it doesn’t necessarily feel like arivalry because San Francisco doesn’t have a franchise quarterback, but how about that 41-39 exciting game to the finish? The Niners scored late and recovered…

NFL Week 3: OBJ, Dez, Divisional Outlook

Rookie QBs Heading Into Week 2

Browns: QB DeShone Kizer DeShone Kizer played solid football against the Black and Yellow. The rookie went 20/30 for 222 yards, rushing and throwing for a touchdown.

Bradford Not Too Shabby as Vikings Start Strong

Since most of you won’t say it, I will. Sam Bradford put on a show Monday Night Football in the home opener, similar to what Alex Smith did on Thursday Night Football. As much as you want to say how bad the Saints’ defense is, and it is, give the guy some credit. Rather than…
