NFL coverage: Week 10
A lot of stuff can happen in a short amount of time, and the NFL is no different. It’s Week 10 and the 1972 Miami Dolphins have popped the champagne corks once again to toast that they remain the only team to have a perfect season, as New England and San Francisco finally lost, though the 49ers look to have the best defence in the league. Do the Browns have a shot of making the playoffs? If you haven’t been watching, here’s what happened in the NFL.
The New England Patriots lost their first game of the season in Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens in their first big test of the season. Will this impact their season? Heck no.
Remember the last time they had a perfect season, they lost to the New York Giants in one of the biggest upsets in Super Bowl history. Take it as you will, the Patriots are going to win the AFC East and secure a first round playoff bye. They’re perfectly fine.
The San Francisco 49ers are right there with New England so far this season, with identical 8-1 records. The 49ers Nick Bosa has impressed a lot of people this season, and he’s in the conversation for defensive player of the year, and he’s a rookie. He’s already had seven sacks in nine games and is a disruptive force.
The Ravens have finally figured out how to maximize the potential of their offensive players. Lamar Jackson is arguably the best player in football right now, and in Week 10, he had a perfect passing completion rating of 158.3. More impressive it’s the second time this season he has accomplished that and he is only the sixth QB to have a perfect rating to have multiple perfect scores, and he has only started 16 career games.
Jackson is doing unbelievable things, if I could choose the MVP, it would be him. His team is doing very good with a 7-2 record and have emerged as a Super Bowl contender.
Heck, the Miami Dolphins finally won not just one game but two. They will not have a 0-16 season after they defeated the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts. This won’t help them make the playoffs, because they have been out of the playoff picture for a while now.
What does this do for the team? It gives them some confidence in saying we can be a decent football team on a good day. Now all eyes are on the Cincinnati Bengals to see if they can win a game this season.
Finally, the Cleveland Browns, oh boy. To have so much talent with Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb, Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landy and still be 3-6 is unacceptable. I hope the Browns make the playoffs, considering the organization has lost and lost so many times. There has been also a lot of criticism of the coaching staff however they have an easier schedule coming but will need to win out to have any shot at the post season
So that is all you need to know about the NFL, after Week 10.
