Bills:

Just when things didn’t look like they could get worse for the Bills’ in the injury department, it appears they have:

There’s a new sheriff in Miami, and for the moment, he’s doing all the right things:

Jets:

The Bills-Jets game was an ugly one, but Balil Powell shined:

Pats:

Just when it’d be easy to start getting down on the Patriots offense, they show some signs of life on Sunday:

My fingers are tired from all the switching from Pat's-TB, golf tourney, Red Sox and NFL RedZone from 1pm-5pm EST.

After that last second win, Cleveland must be thinking why the hell do we have all these high priced players, like Joe Thomas.  Let's go for a complete redo and we may still be able to win enough to keep the fans from burning down the stadium.

@RapSheet

Seahawks: 3 wins. The other 5 NFC playoffs teams from last year (Packers, Vikings, Redskins, 49ers, Falcons): 3 wins

@joeyboy790 Overreaction is the NY way....especially for the Jets.

@iycedout Rankings mean nothing....3-0 is all that matters.

@iycedout f bleacher report. i still hate that bowen went there.

@iycedout @the hooded genius GB and Saints have the same issue Pat's had since '07/'08.  Lots of offense, but little defense.  It seems to me that you can have one (great offense) or the other (great defense) but not both.  I would assume the cap has a lot to do with that.

@joeyboy790 not really. Maybe 3 yards? The only thing that made those plays worth while was setting up for the pass play that got broken up. Beyond that it was the only running play that didn't work.

@iycedout @joeyboy790 According to the rankings that you love, in my opinion, they are still a team in the 20s....but like I always say....who cares about the rankings....2-1 is all you should care about.

@iycedout @Raat @joeyboy790 OK....but they played the Bills & TB....2 bottom feeders and a Pats team that has come back to the pack.  Hold onto the 'our d is sick' comment until you play a few good teams/games, etc.  That is an over reaction.

@iycedout @Raat @joeyboy790 I meant there is no middle ground....either the team is the best or worst in the league according to many fans.  Same with the Giants.

@iycedout @finfan5357 well that surprises me. I guess giving up the 5th least points in the nfl can't even qualify you as a good D. 

everywhere mike nolan goes, the D is good.

@iycedout @finfan5357 you know how many games grimes played for them last year? 1.  

how many more than 1 game starters they lose last year? abraham? dunta robinson, vance walker. everyone else was a backup.

finfan5357
finfan5357

good d yes. they held the saints to 23, rams to 17 before a last 3 minutes TD. last year gave up the 5th least points in the NFL. they are good.

Raat

@iycedout @Raat In NO, the Saints will be heavy favorites....5-7 points is my guess.  Lets see how Tanney takes the next step....underdog vs. a good team in prime time.

Probably a tie, but that's what I thought last week before CJ won it.
