NFL Week 4 Game Capsules

NFL Betting – Week 4 Roundup

The theme of Week 4: horrifically blown leads. Hope you didn’t change the channel or go work in the garden, as you would’ve missed some dandy second halves (and faced the embarrassment of telling your friends you were working in the garden).

Lions 34, Cowboys 30

I’ve tried to be a Tony Romo apologist for a while now, as I think he has talent and he’s been unlucky at times, but Dallas’ loss on Sunday was a new low. The Cowboys led 27-3 in the second half before Romo let Detroit back into the game with a pair of pick-sixes. Those two throws, plus his third pick, were inexcusable. He didn’t even see the guys waiting to intercept him. After that, it was the Calvin Johnson show, as Megatron overcame triple coverage on one of his two touchdowns.

Texans 17, Steelers 10

Arian Foster is back with a vengeance. He’s just the latest running back to make us forget how good Pittsburgh’s run defense was last season. Is it time for us to accept that the Steelers are aging and just not that strong a team anymore?

Bears 34, Panthers 29

Are the Panthers the most talked about 1-3 team in football? I guess the Eagles get that title, albeit for different reasons. But Cam Newton has undoubtedly made Carolina relevant again. In a losing effort, he ran for two scores and topped 370 passing yards for the third time in four career starts. I’m scared to pick ATS for any team playing the Panthers right now.

Chiefs 22, Vikings 17

The Chiefs “won” this battle of two teams who seemingly have already quit on the 2011 season. Leslie Frazier insists that Donovan McNabb will keep starting at quarterback or Minnesota. Why? Your team is 0-4 and you share a division with the only two 4-0 teams.

Bengals 23, Bills 20

What did this game teach us? That the Bills aren’t as legit as we thought? That the Bengals can move the ball? I’d say the key takeaway from Cincy’s comeback win is that its defense is for real. How for real? Try first in the NFL in total defense through four weeks. The Bills have to be slightly nervous at 3-1 and about to face an absolutely desperate Eagles team.

Titans 31, Browns 13

Not so fast, Houston. It seemed like the Texans had the AFC South handed to them with Indy tanking sans-Peyton Manning and Jacksonville generally sucking. But the Titans and a resurgent Matt Hasselbeck are determined to make it a race. Should be fun when these two teams meet in Weeks 7 and 17.

Redskins 17, Rams 10

This was a game St. Louis had to win. Its schedule was vicious over its first three games and life gets no easier with Green Bay, Dallas and New Orleans on the docket following the Rams’ bye. Redskins fans shouldn’t get too comfortable; Rex Grossman was bad on Sunday. I still think this team is a pretender.

49ers 24, Eagles 23

The parallels between the Eagles and the Boston Red Sox continue to astound me. Guess what, Philly? It doesn’t matter how good your fantasy stats are. You have to play defense. Teams are running like crazy on you. Why aren’t the Eagles evolving? [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Saints 23, Jaguars 10

Maybe because the Packers beat them in Week 1, the Saints feel pretty under the radar early this season. We shouldn’t forget about them. Drew Brees is as good as ever and he’s clicking beautifully with his new favorite weapons, Jimmy Graham and Darren Sproles. The Jags were a piece of cake.

Falcons 30, Seahawks 28

The Falcons remain quite the work in progress after barely escaping Seattle with a win. Michael Turner continues to get the rock but, boy, has he ever slowed down. Matt Ryan has some great downfield targets in Roddy White and dynamite rookie Julio Jones; why doesn’t Atlanta air it out like it promised to in the preseason?

Giants 31, Cardinals 27

I didn’t expect the Giants to have this much trouble with Arizona, nor did I expect Beanie Wells to shred New York like he did. If Arizona’s defense could just play well enough to give them a lead, Beanie would be a fine closer.

Chargers 26, Dolphins 16

The Chargers continue to underwhelm me, winning but not blowing out teams that they should blow out. Meanwhile, the Dolphins suddenly look like the Andrew Luck frontrunners. Brandon Marshall is salivating over that idea.

Ravens 34, Jets 17

What a weird Sunday nighter. The Jets are suddenly a team without an identity, not defending as well as normal, not passing the ball well, not running the ball, not doing anything. Baltimore “won” but Joe Flacco looked awful. I’ll give each team a mulligan as there is too much talent on both rosters not to bounce back.

Buccaneers 24, Colts 17

Yet another game that ended with a comeback. It shouldn’t have surprised anyone, as the Colts really are that bad. A storyline developing in my head: The Colts go 0-16. They draft Andrew Luck. Peyton Manning never plays again. He replaces Jim Caldwell as head coach and mentors Luck to glory. Disney movie rights?
