Plus, Trubisky has his best game of 2018, Todd Bowles on the brink after Jets blown out by Bills, Pack back on track, Jaguars’ season keeps slipping away, Falcons defense does them in, Tampa’s unprecedented incompetence, Raiders-Chargers gets chippy, and much more
Also, why it’s probably all over for Washington, why it’s ridiculous for John Harbaugh to be on the hot seat, and why the NFL doesn’t escape culpability for the “caravan ad” debacle on Sunday Night Football. Plus, musical guest: The Smashing Pumpkins!
Plus, Marcus Peters officially a huge problem for the Rams, the Chargers hold on despite an inability to kick, Nathan Peterman can’t catch a break any more than his receivers can catch a pass, Vance Joseph struggles to make proper decisions, FitzMagic had them where he wanted them, Lions miss Golden Tate, Browns stink no matter who coaches them, Darnold’s nightmare run continues, and the Ravens are kidding themselves if they think John Harbaugh is the problem
Also, Nick Mullens was FOX’s best Thursday night programming since Herman’s Head, trying so hard to be optimistic about Nathan Peterman, the Steelers and Ravens are so even!, goats that climb trees which is just incredible, ghost dogs for Christmas and more. Plus, musical guest: R.E.M.!
O.K., O.K., we won’t get carried away, but Indy is starting to see its investment in the offensive line pay off while the defense is overachieving thanks to some raw but intriguing young talent. With Andrew Luck regaining his old form, the Colts’ future is bright
Also, Saints-Vikings a reason to skip the World Series Sunday night, the Bengals as reverse vampires, and the perfect encapsulation of Thursday Night Football: four minutes of game administration confusion regarding the opening kickoff. Plus, musical guest: The Sound of Urchin!
Plus, a (possibly) questionable call precedes the Cowboys’ game-ending missed kick, why Vrabel was right to go for two, the story of a kicker’s redemption in Tampa, Kerryon Johnson shines, Eric Reid’s eventful day, Vikings very much back on track, Trubisky implodes while the Bears pass rush disappears, and more from Week 7
Also, looking at who’s gonna need a QB next winter, Nick Bosa misses out on a very useful education, whose games have the most points and therefore are the most exciting, multiple Trent Edwards references, and for the love of God don’t watch the 9:30 game. Plus, musical guest: Neil Young and Crazy Horse!
