Monday Download (Week 5)

Another week down and just like that we went from two undefeated teams, to seven (if Seattle wins tonight, which I think they will) one-loss teams. Of all those, I still can't figure out how the Cowboys have found themselves in that bunch, particularly considering their less than stellar defense.  

Thursday reminded us that the Packers are still pretty good as long as they have Aaron Rodgers playing. We also learned that maybe Teddy is more valuable to the Vikings than anyone could have imagined.

Look at Greg Olsen torching his old team for two touchdowns and then win for Carolina. Too many turnovers for Cutler and the Bears does them in again.

Dez Bryant saves the day again for the Cowboys with a huge catch. Houston was unable to capitalize on Arian Foster's nice day (156 yards rushing, 2 TD's).

The Lions are one of the poorer 3-2 teams I have seen recently. Nice come from behind win for Kyle Orton and the Bills.

Three straight wins for Luck and the Colts. Baltimore needs more overall offensive production.

Pittsburgh is just good enough to beat Jacksonville, but that does not making them much better than the lowly Jags. Does Bortles have to pass the ball to himself to try and get a win for Jacksonville?

The Saints managed a win in OT, but again showed how beatable they truly are. Good for the Bucs for finally learning to play for four quarters - just wasn't enough yesterday.

It was rookie day for the Giants as both RB Andre Williams and WR Odell Beckham Jr. scored TD's in their win. Atlanta is going to need some help on their offensive line if they have any hope of wining in the long run this year.

The Eagles are vulnerable on the defensive end, but are still managing to win at all costs. Austin Davis really keeps the Rams in these games - they could string together some wins down the line.

The Browns are just dangerous enough to knock of some playoff bound teams towards the end of this season. The Titans are way better with Jake Locker, but still not that good.

Arizona has some QB issues and hence, scoring issues. Congrats to Peyton Manning and Demaryius who both set career marks of their own in the win for the Broncos.

San Diego looks very good as of late. Geno Smith is a problem, not THE problem though for the Jets.

The 49ers are winning at home, but I still think lacking the dominance expected of them. Alex Smith couldn't do enough to steal the win for the Chiefs against his old team.

The Patriots ran all over the Bengals defense in handing Cincy their first defeat. Bengals looked outplayed all night - I'll chalk it up to bye week rustiness.
