We are through Thanksgiving 2022 and that means that it’s time to get serious about the NFL season. One immediate observation: Entire NFC East playoff bound ! Think about that for a moment. The Eagles are the best of the best. The Cowboys are red hot. The Giants are surprisingly good and the Commanders have racked enough wins to be above the fray.
It also appears that the frenzy for NFL football is as strong as ever. 41 million people watched the early Thanksgiving game in Detroit between the Lions and the Bills. The Cowboys – Giants game that followed drew a record 43 million viewers.
By the time Sunday rolled around, an injured Aaron Rodgers gave way to an impressive Jordan Love, although he did not have enough time to overcome Jalen Hurts’ historic performance where he rushed for 100 yards in the first quarter.
One other fun fact that not enough people are talking about: The 49ers defense is spectacular. They shut out the Saints. It was the fourth straight game they did not allow a point in the second half.
We will hash things out and see if the entire NFC East is playoff bound.
So it is time for us to evaluate everyone and rank them again with the Shemon and Sheppard NFL Power Rankings on ESPN Southwest Florida.
