    Drew Lock outduels Justin Herbert, great comeback win for Denver. Last week it was Joe Burrow outdueling Baker Mayfield. There is still no shortage of excellent White QBs.

    Herbert does seem to be more advanced then Lock right now. I am a huge fan of them both (it has been well documented lol). I hope both of these guys continue their positive trajectory. Lock has some catching up to do but has a confidence/moxie to him.

    Payton the toe dipper. Ever notice he doesn't employ Taysom Hill for consecutive plays? One and done. Put him in for a set of series. These guys get paid a fortune and I am just sitting around mouthing off but good grief. A simple likely successful formula yet the Saints draw some line.

    Great play by Hendrickson!!

    Taysom Hill finishes with 5 carries for 35 yards plus 2 receptions for 30 yards and a TD. He should be used at least that much every game, but in most games they utilize him a lot less.

    Bears lose. Hopefully the Rodent's seat is getting hotter in Chicago.

    Showing lineups for the Philadelphia - Dallas game, no surprise that a graphic indicates Alex Singleton is Pro Football Focus's 12th ranked linebacker, even in limited playing time. Glad to see the former CFL star get a shot and prove he can play. I don't see a universe in which he's permitted to start next year, but I can enjoy him while I can. In a fair league, he would have done more than enough already to have an inside line as a starter somewhere

    I find it interesting that Aunt Crissy's PFF puts the ranks up of the players but Crissy never comments on them. He could of really tee'd off on how bad the Cowboys secondary is according to PFFs metrics.

    The Jets are legit this year, as in they have a legit chance to go 0-16.

    They are playing the Patriots next week so it's a winnable game. I'd personally love for them to beat the Pats. Darnold was a player I followed since he started as a freshman for USC so to see how Gase has destroyed his career with one of the worst offenses in recent memory I'd love to see Sam at least get a win vs Scam. I still can't believe Gase is a head coach.

    Wentz drives the Eagles down the field for a TD. Nothing against Ben DiNucci but Wentz needs this win bad to keep the media dogs off his back for one more week.

    Wentz pressing too much, forcing some bad throws.

    Remember too that all the games in the Northeast and Midwest were affected by very strong winds today. The stats of a lot of QBs have been pretty bad today.

    The Dallas Cowboys are about to be 2-6 after tonight. Hope I don't jinx it but I think the Eagles will get this much needed win. Hope that Wentz can get the media back on his side. It was an ugly game but we will take it any way we can get it. Divisional
    Games are often very hard fought and close as both teams know each other so good. Wentz really needs some better receivers as well as many other things to help him out. He takes most of the blame and it's very unfair.

    Doesn't mean he will have a big game but It always a relief to see a player like Miller catch a pass early (19 yarder). I've seen too many games where I'm rooting for a wide receiver and before you know it the fourth quarter has arrived and they haven't gotten involved at all.

    Beautiful throw by Jones there. None of the announcers made a mention of that.

    Daniel Jones is not only a good quarterback but he is also a phenomenal athlete with great wheels. He is faster than Josh Allen in my opinion or at least his equal. I love both of these guys.

    Not much to like on the Tampa defensive side of the ball outside of Anthony Nelson. Missed the beginning, is he listed as a starter?

    I’ll go for Tampa tonight. But, I’d like to see the Giants win the NFC East. 6-10 will probably do it.

    Hoping for a NYG upset. I like their group of LBs and Jones makes them watchable.

    I looked at the Buccaneers Giants box score. Tanner Hudson, a white man, is listed as getting a target. He's a tight end.

    I see Justin Watson had a kickoff return. He's got good speed.

    Who was the other white No. 49 who just sacked Brady?

    I love the Giants defense.
