TAMPA BAY (42) d OAKLAND (32) The Headline: Doug Martin destroys the Raiders The Story: Does anyone still doubt the theory that running back is the easiest position to come into the league and have an immediate impact? Taken 31st overall in April’s draft, Buccaneers rookie Doug Martin ploughed through the ‘vaunted’ Raiders defense for […]
HOUSTON (21) d BUFFALO (9) The Headline: Texans corral the Bills for an easy home win The Story: Much had been made about Mario Williams’ return to Houston where he spent the first six years of his career. The split between Williams and the front office was far from amicable by the sounds of it, […]
KANSAS CITY (34) d SAN DIEGO (13) The Headline: Norv Turner gets to keep his job, unfortunately. The Story: In this divisional game between the inconsistent at best Chargers and the just plain crappy Chiefs, fans were treated to… a game of football.

I take the team rankings and place them into their divisions to get a decisive divisional ranking which is what you will see below. Once again there were some movers […]
That title is as witty as this is going to get. Frankly, I’m baffled at the way the Patriots have played this season. Sure, New England just housed the Rams, but that should be the norm, not the exception. Did it really take Josh McDaniels seven weeks to realize Rob Gronkowski is the most uncoverable […]
It’s becoming more and more evident that the Steelers smell blood in the water after the Baltimore Ravens lost two of their most important defenders prior to Week 7 and now the AFC North looks like a crap shoot. The Redskins are clearly a competitive bunch, but after they lost Brian Orakpo, there just isn’t […]
No recap necessary. Play of the year through eight weeks. Vick Ballard has officially introduced himself to the NFL. Walk-off reverse dunk in over time for the win.
