What The Hell Is Going On?
They’ve allowed 39, 38 and 49 points in the last three games. It’s amazing to think that they actually won a game in that stretch. That has been the Dallas Cowboys so far this season.
1. Indianapolis Colts
Even with a less than ideal quarterback situation last year, they were still competitive and now adding QB Philip Rivers should improve those odds.
2. Tennessee Titans
They kept QB Ryan Tannehill and RB Derrick Henry while adding Jadeveon Clowney for the defense. Not a bad offseason.
3. Houston Texans
It would seem that Bill O’Brien is safely entrenched as the Head Coach/GM in Houston barring a catastrophic collapse.
4. Jacksonville Jaguars
To think it was only 3 seasons ago that they were one game away from their first Super Bowl appearance.
Defense Is Their Calling Card
There has been an ongoing theme with the San Francisco 49ers this season and that has been their dominant defense.
Why Did It Go To Overtime?
The trend in the NFL has been to just go for it on fourth down more often than not. Whether you’re ahead or behind, the odds are most head coaches will go for it and consequences be damned.
