What a week in the NFL. Seeing the parity of performance from week to week and late game nail biters is why Football is loved by millions in North America.
Best Team of the Week
I would give this one to Baltimore but they faced an embarrassment of a team named the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Thus I'm giving it to the Cleveland Browns, who Crushed an okay team in the Steelers, 31-10. Oh by the way, 7 of that 10 points produced by the Steelers were in garbage time. It was a good win by a decent Browns team.
Worst Team of the Week
I try so hard, so very hard not to put the Jacksonville Jaguars as the worst team of the week because it's honestly too easy but Sunday was just ridiculous. Okay so let me explain why the Jags are the worst team of the week. Jacksonville was a field goal away from winning their first game but it didn't work out that way. The snap was good, the kick was up, and......... it got blocked; the Jacksonville Jaguars losing to the Tennessee Titans, 16-14. I immediately sighed and I am sorry again for the few remaining Jacksonville Jaguars fans who sit through garbage week after week.
Best Player of the Week
Say what you will about Joe Flacco, but to have 5 touchdown passes at halftime is ridiculous. I know the competition was not good to say the least, but still, Joe Flacco did that to an NFL team and he honestly could have scored more if he wanted to.
Worst Player of the Week
Get ready it's that time of the year where more than one player win the worst player of the week. To the Minnesota Vikings offensive line, have you no shame. How do you allow 8 sacks? It got so bad that Teddy Bridgewater started forcing the ball. Get Better Minnesota offensive line.
Surprise of the Week:
I'm surprised that Dallas Cowboys went in to Seattle and stunned the Seahawks, specifically because the defense was great. Marshawn Lynch was handled, Russell Wilson was handled, and if it wasn't for a couple special team blunders, the Cowboys would probably be the best team of the week.
Game of the Week:
I know the Dallas Cowboys vs the Seattle Seahawks was good but I am a sucker for late game theatrics and that's why the game of the week is the Green Bay Packers vs. the Miami Dolphins. I mean yeah the "Dan Marino-esque fake spike oh my Goodness" line is played out but that was an impressive final drive by Aaron Rodgers, who is one of the best quarterbacks in football.
Those are your Weekend Warriors. One more thing I want to point out. What are the Detroit Lions? Seriously from week-to-week they either look great or terrible. Hopefully for Lions' Fans in the near future we find out they are for real, but usually when there is inconsistency, it means a team is a pretender.
