Shemon & Sheppard – In The Afternoon

There are just 8 more weeks of NFL regular season action. Week 10 was a fantastic weekend, headlined by the game of the year to this point. A comeback win for the Minnesota Vikings in Buffalo. Justin Jefferson has announced himself as a serious contender for the best Wide Receiver in the game. What he did in the 2nd half and overtime was something we don’t see form Wide Receivers very often. He is now in the same conversation as Devonte Adams, Tyreek Hill, and Stefon Diggs. Minnesota wasn’t the only team to overcome a 2 touchdown deficit on the road. The Detroit Lions got a big NFC North win over the Chicago Bears. The Lions are 2-1 in the division this year! Green Bay also overcame a 14-point deficit with an OT win against the Cowboys. Are the Packers back? There’s a lot to look at in our NFL week 10 recap.

Teams like the Chiefs, Dolphins, and Giants had inferior opponents, and made easy work of them. That is a big thing in the NFL. Just win the games you are supposed to win. It won’t get as much attention as the teams like the Vikings, Packers, and Lions. However, they all count the same at the end of the season. A win is a win. There were 4 teams that do not hold a 1st Round Draft pick that lost in week 10. The Saints, Broncos, Rams, and Browns would be drafting in the top-10 if the season ended today. But they do not hold their 1st round picks for the 2023 draft. When you mortgage the future, you better capitalize when your window is open. Those teams are not doing that. Here’s the NFL week 10 recap.

  • Bills Lose... Again

    The Bills started off the season red hot, and looked like an unstoppable force on offense. But the Bills have dropped their last 2 games to the Jets and Vikings. Good teams, but most fans didn’t think they we’re good enough to beat Buffalo. Josh Allen played in spite of his elbow injury. It didn’t seem to effect him, but we will never know for sure. Buffalo has Cleveland on deck before a Thanksgiving game at Detroit. Buffalo should get back on track, but they don’t seem to be the unstoppable force that they looked like at the beginning of the season.

  • Minnesota is Good

    Jefferson caught this ball. It was one of the most impressive catches I have ever seen. Beyond Jefferson’s greatness, the Minnesota Vikings are very good. They are 7-0 in one score games, and their only loss was a road Monday night game against the Eagles. We all know Kirk Cousins on Monday night is not a good thing. Good news is the Vikings do not have any Monday night games left on their schedule. We will learn more about the Vikings over their next 3 games with the Cowboys, Patriots, and jets on deck. This is a good team.

  • Josh McDaniels is not a Good Coach

    The Raiders lost… again. This time it was to the Colts led by Jeff Saturday in his first head coaching job in the NFL. This team can not get out of it’s own way. Since McDaniels started 6-0 with Denver, McDaniels is 7-24. the Raiders thought of themselves as a contender coming into the season. However, Vegas might want to move on from Derek Carr after the season, and reassess the coaching position. I’m sure Belichick would take him back in Foxboro calling the offense.

  • Miami is a Super Bowl Contender

    The Miami Dolphins offense is humming right now. The passing game has been there all season, but the addition of Jeff Wilson Jr. has added a new dimension to this offense. Team’s can no longer drop into coverage and leave a 6-man box to stop the run. Miami goes into their bye week 7-3. The first time they’ve hit that mark since 2001. Coming out of the bye, Miami gets the Texans at home before a tough stretch to close out the season against the 49ers, Chargers, Bills, Packers, Patriots, and Jets. This is a team that no one wants to play in the playoffs. Oh yeah- Tua is an MVP candidate.

  • Is Green Bay Back?

    This is Christian Watson. Get to know the name. Green Bay looked like Green Bay for the first time this season, and Watson was a big reason for it. That was a potentially season changing win against the Cowboys in overtime. They’ve got a couple of big games coming up with the Titans and Eagles. if they can sweep those games, then they will be right back in the mix for an NFC wild card spot.

  • Jimmy G Holding Back the 49ers

    The 49ers beat the Chargers on Sunday Night Football. It’s a good win, but San Francisco was absolutely right to move on from Jimmy G this offseason. He is okay, but he will cost this team a win somewhere down the stretch. He didn’t cost them this week, but the 49ers should have pounded the Chargers. The Quarterback was the only thing holding them back from hanging 35 on Los Angeles.

  • The Rams are Dead

    There will be a new Super Bowl champion this season. The defending champs are on the mat, and I don’t see them getting back up. This team has lost 3 straight- not scoring more than 17 in any one game. Their schedule is not overly difficult through the end of the season, but something is broken in LA. The Rams a barbeque chicken-DONE!

  • Turnaround in Tampa?

    And just like that Tampa is back to .500. The Bucs enter the bye week on a two game winning streak, and are back on top of the NFC South. Looking ahead, the Bucs should be able to get to 9 wins this season. They’ve got the Browns, Saints, Panthers, and Falcons left on the schedule along with the 49ers, Bengals, and Cardinals. If they can get to 9 wins, look out for Tampa in the playoffs.
