Minnesota got a field goal. That didn't matter, because the Los Angeles Rams won 38-31.


Quarterback Jared Goff was the player of the game. Goff went 26/33 and had a career high 465 passing yards, 5 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. Hopefully Drew Brees and Matt Ryan bail me out. I honestly don't deserve to win in Fantasy this week for benching Goff. One player who did help me on the Rams was wide receiver Cooper Kupp who had 9 receptions, 162 receiving yards, and 2 receiving touchdowns. Brandin Cooks had 7 recepitons, 116 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. Wide receiver Robert Woods had 5 receptions, 101 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown.

New York went on a meaningless run in the fourth quarter. T.J. Yeldon got a rushing touchdown. Jacksonville won this game 31-12.


Running back T.J. Yeldon was the player of the game today. T.J. Yeldon had 18 carries, 52 rushing yards, 3 receptions, 48 receiving yards, 21 touches, 100 total yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 1 receiving touchdown, and 2 total touchdowns. Yeldon did an awesome job helping Jacksonville run the football despite injuries on this offensive line with Cam Robinson, A.J. Cann, and Brandon Linder all being injured.

Running back Sony Michel did well in this game. Michel had 25 carries, 112 rushing yards, and 1 rushing touchdown. Michel did a great job taking pressure off of Tom Brady. I'm glad I was wrong about Michel.





Philadelphia Eagles 2-1-0
Versus
Tennessee Titans 2-1-0


Game Recap: TENNESSEE-Philadelphia has Carson Wentz back along with Jay Ajayi and Alshon Jeffery. Philadelphia is now practically at full health. Tennessee still has quite a bit of injuries.

Game Recap: INDIANAPOLIS-Both of these teams are playing to save their seasons with last years teams from the AFC South both being 2-1. Deshaun Watson and Andrew Luck both need to step up this week.

Buffalo Bills 1-2-0
Versus

Game Recap: GREEN BAY-Buffalo heads to Green Bay coming off a road win against Minnesota where they won without star running back LeSean McCoy. Aaron Rodgers goes back to Green Bay after a brutal outing in the Nations Capital.

Versus

Running back Ezekiel Elliott had 25 carries, 152 rushing yards, 4 receptions, 88 receiving yards, 240 total yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. Elliott was my player of the game, but Dak Prescott avoided turnovers and did a wonderful job as well.




Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2-1-0
Versus
Chicago Bears 2-1-0


Game Recap: CHICAGO-Ryan Fitzpatrick faced off against Mitchell Trubisky. Whoever won this game would remain in control of their respective division with both teams in first place.


This was one of the most forgettable games on. One thing I will say is Mitchell Trubisky finally balled out with a career game. It was at the point where Scott Hanson called Trubisky, Truthbisky on NFL Red Zone. That's how ugly things got for Tampa Bay's secondary.


Mitchell Trubisky had 5 passing touchdowns in the first half of a 48-10 routing. Trubisky went 19/26 with 354 passing yards, 6 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions.




Cincinnati Bengals 2-1-0
Versus
Atlanta Falcons 1-2-0


Game Recap: ATLANTA-Cincinnati did not have Joe Mixon at running back or Billy Price at center. Atlanta did not have Devonta Freeman at running back. The Falcons also didn't have Keanu Neal or Ricardo Allen at safety though. Atlanta also didn't have Deion Jones at middle linebacker. This would be one of the better early games in week 4.


Ito Smith got a rushing touchdown on Atlanta's first drive. Atlanta took 4 minutes and 33 seconds off the clock. Atlanta got two third down conversions on their opening drive.


Bobby Hart got a false start penalty on third and two. Andy Dalton threw a 26-yard pass to A.J. Green. Green proceeded to get the third down conversion and make up for Bobby Hart's horrendous decision making. Then Dalton fired a 15-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Eifert. Cincinnati tied the game at 7-7.


Matt Ryan threw a 24-yard pass to Julio Jones on third down. Atlanta began the game 3/3 on third down conversions. Matt Ryan finally failed to get a third down conversion. However, Atlanta went for it on fourth and five at the Cincinnati forty five yard line. Geno Atkins sacked Matt Ryan on fourth down and made Falcons offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian look like a drunkard for not punting to the Bengals.


Giovani Bernard got two more third down conversions for the Bengals. Then he got a rushing touchdown. Cincinnati led 14-7 after one quarter thanks to Bernard and began this game 3/3 on third down conversions in the first quarter.


Matt Ryan threw a completion to Mohamed Sanu on third down. That set up a touchdown pass to Logan Paulsen. Atlanta tied the game at 14 and improved to 4/5 on third down conversions.


Andy Dalton threw a 24-yard pass to rookie running back Mark Walton. That set things up for John Ross. Andy Dalton threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to John Ross. Cincinnati led 21-14.


Atlanta really kept this next drive going. Matt Ryan scrambled on third and one to keep the drive alive. Then Ryan threw a first down to Sanu on third and seven. Finally, Matt Ryan threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Ridley on the final third down of this drive. Atlanta tied the game at 21-21. The Falcons also improved to 7/8 on third down conversions. Atlanta also took up 5 minutes and 16 seconds on this drive.


Atlanta's cornerback tandem of Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford gave up 31-yards worth of penalties on Cincinnati's next drive. Bernard got another rushing touchdown and Giovani Bernard is able to pull a quicky on Dan Quinn's defense thanks to this defense having no middle linebacker and no safety that can cover.


Atlanta drove the ball downfield. Matt Bryant kicked a 55-yard field goal. Cincinnati led 28-24 at halftime. Cincinnati was perfect on third down conversions in the first half even though Atlanta went 7/8 on third down conversions in the first half goign 5/5 on third down conversions in the second quarter. Atlanta had the football for 9 minutes and 57 seconds in the second quarter.


Cincinnati got the ball to start the second half. Tyler Eifert got carted off with a leg injury. He will undergo surgery and his season is over. After both teams had a moment of silence for Eifert, Takkarist McKinley sacked Andy Dalton on third down. Cincinnati had to punt as a result, but the punt was blocked.


Atlanta was able to get a field goal pretty easily thanks to that blocked punt. Cincinnati led 28-27. That was the only score in the entire third quarter with Atlanta going 0/2 on third down converisons in the third quarter.


Matt Ryan threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Ridley. Atlanta led 33-28.


Atlanta recovered a fumble only to have that play overturned. Cincinnati got a field goal and Atlanta led 33-31 as a result.


Cincinnati blocked a field goal on Atlanta's next drive. An offsides penalty negated that blocked field goal. It's pretty evident that both kickers paid off NFL referee Shawn Smith. Thanks to that penalty Atlanta made it a 36-31 game.


Andy Dalton threw a touchdown pass to A.J. Green with 12 seconds left. Cincinnati won 37-36.


A.J. Green is my player of the game. His clutch touchdown allowed Cincinnati to barely edge out the Atlanta Falcons.





Seattle Seahawks 1-2-0
Versus
Arizona Cardinals 0-3-0


Game Recap: ARIZONA-Josh Rosen made his first NFL start. Seattle tried to get another win.


Seattle didn't do anything on their first drive. Jarran Reed sacked Josh Rosen on third down.

David Johnson fumbled the football on the very first play of Arizona's next drive.


Sebastian Janikowski missed a 38-yard field goal as Sea Bass watched his field goal attempt sail wide right. Seattle kept their 7-0 lead.


Josh Rosen threw a touchdown pass to Chad Williams. The play got overturned because NFL referee John Hussey decided to be a dick and screw Josh Rosen out of his first career passing touchdown. Seattle led 7-0 after one quarter with the first quarter ending very favorable for Seattle despite the fact that Seattle went 0/2 on third down conversions in the first quarter.


Arizona got a field goal and watched David Johnson get a rushing touchdown in the second quarter. Arizona led 10-7 at halftime. Seattle wenr 0/5 on third down conversions in the first half.


Seattle failed to get a third down converison. The crazy thing is Seattle did get a fourth down conversion only to be stopped on third down once again. Seattle tied the game at 10 in the third quarter despite being 0/7 on third down conversions.


Arizona's first round picks really set the tone on the next drive. Some defensive penalties by Deonne Buchannon and Patrick Peterson. Mike Davis got another rushing touchdown. Seattle led 17-10 after three quarters of play. Both teams went 0/2 on third down conversions in the third quarter. Seattle also had the football for 10 minutes and 5 seconds in the third quarter. Seattle was 0/7 on third down conversions through three quarters.


Josh Rosen finally threw his first career passing touchdown in the fourth quarter. Earl Thomas was injured during the play. Thomas broke his leg and flipped off Seattle for not paying him.


Seattle got a field goal and won 20-17. Mike Davis won this game for Seattle with 21 carries, 101 rushing yards, and 2 rushing touchdowns.




Cleveland Browns 1-1-1
Versus
Oakland Raiders 0-3-0


Game Recap: OAKLAND-Baker Mayfield got his first career start. Jon Gruden was still looking for his first career win.


Oakland began this game going three and out. Then Cleveland did the same thing. Then Oakland went three and out once again.


Baker Mayfield began this game with a pick 6 to Gareon Conley on Cleveland' second drive. Mayfield reboudned though wiht a 15-play drive where he led the Browns 72-yards downfield on a long lasting drive that lasted 8 minutes and 1 second. Cleveland got a field goal on this drive as Oakland led 7-3 after one quarter of play.


Joe Schobert sacked Derek Carr in the second quarter. Sebastian Janikowski missed a field goal that would have extended Oakland's lead on the Browns.


Nick Chubb ran for a 63-yard rushing touchdown. It only took one play for Nick Chubb to go Sonic the Hedgehog on the Oakland Raiders where he invaded Oakland Alameda Coliseum like it was Green Hill Zone. Cleveland took a 9-7 lead and then Cleveland decided to do something incredibly dumb by calling a two point conversion instead of kicking an extra point.


Cleveland's defense made another stop. Baker Mayfield threw two completions on Cleveland's next drive. One was a 15-yard pass to Jarvis Landry which set up a 49-yard touchdown pass on the next play. Baker Mayfield even got the two point conversion. Cleveland led 17-7.


Oakland executed a solid drive that lasted 4 minutes and 30 seconds. They got five first downs on this drive including a Derek Carr to Amari Cooper touchdown on second and four. Carr threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to Cooper. Cleveland led 17-14.


Derek Carr drove downfield. He got Oakland to the Cleveland 40-yard line before throwing an interception to E.J. Gaines. Cleveland led 17-14 at halftime.


Cleveland got the ball to start the second half. The Browns' put together an 11-play drive that lasted 5 minutes and 38 seconds. Cleveland got a field goal to take a 20-14 lead.


Derek Carr threw another interception to E.J. Gaines. Cleveland got the ball back and Baker Mayfield threw a passing touchdown to Jarvis Landry. Cleveland led 28-14 after capitalizing off of Carr.


Derek Carr threw a touchdown to Jared Cook Jr. Cleveland led 28-21 after three quarters of play.


Oakland got a field goal to make it a 28-24 game. Baker Mayfield lost a fumble and Jonathan Hankins recovered it. Karma really screwed Baker Mayfield over in Oakland because he decided to plant Oklahoma's flag at Ohio State. First a former Buckeye Conley gets a pick six in his first career start and then another former Buckeye Hankins recovered a fumble from Mayfield. If that's not karma tell me what the fuck is while imitating Jon Gruden.


Derek Carr threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson. Nelson gave Oakland a 31-28 lead. After Cleveland went three and out, Oakland got a field goal on their very next drive to make it a 34-28 game.


Carlos Hyde got a rushing touchdown. Clevleand took a 35-34 lead. Then Nick Chubb ran for a 41-yard rushing touchdown. Chubb gave Cleveland a 42-34 lead.


Oakland had an 8-play drive. Cleveland made a defensive stop to force a turnover on downs for the Oakland Raiders.


Carlos Hyde ran for a first down on third and two with a two yard gain. The officials overturned this call causing Cleveland to punt hte football even though Hyde clearly crossed the do not cross line for a first down.


Cleveland punted it to the Oakland Raiders. A defensive holding penalty on third and one by Cleveland when Derek Carr threw an incomplete pass kept Oakland in the game. Carr threw a 19-yard completion to Jared Cook Jr. with 57 seconds left. Oakland was at the Cleveland 20-yard line. Carr would go back to Jared Cook Jr. with 37 seconds left. He'd even throw a two point converison to Jordy Nelson. This tied the game at 42-42.


Baker Mayfield got the ball back. This time he threw an interception to Reggie Nelson. Thanks to Reggie Nelson, I didn't get to see the end of this awesome game due to time constraints from NFL Red Zone. Way to ruin NFL Red Zone Reggie Nelson.


Oakland's first drive was a 7-play drive that took up three minutes and fifty seconds. Oakland missed another field goal and wasted tree fiddy in overtime.


Oakland's defense kept the Browns to a three and out in overtime. Then Oakland put together an 11-play drive that lasted 3 minutes and 41 seconds. The Raiders drove 70-yards downfield to get the game-winning field goal.


Tight end Jared cook Jr. was my player of the game. Oakland's offense as a whole just clicked though. Quarterback Derek Carr went 35/38 with 437 passing yards, 4 passing touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. Running back Marshawn Lynch had 20 carries for 130 rushing yards. Wide receiver Amari Cooper had 8 receptions, 128 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. Tight end Jared Cook Jr. had 8 receptions, 110 receiving yards, and 2 receiving touchdowns. Wide receiver Martavis Bryant had 3 receptions for 51 receiving yards and Oakland's other wide receiver Jordy Nelson had 5 receptions for 48 receiving yards and 1 receiving touchdown. Oakland was that effective offensively even without Donald Penn at right tackle and even when right tackle Brandon Parker got injured during the game.




New Orleans Saints 2-1-0
Versus
New York Giants 1-2-0


Game Recap: NEW YORK-New Orleans headed to New York. CBS is supposed to call AFC games, but Tony Romo wanted to troll his former arch rival Eli Manning. Jim Nantz even joined in by punking Eli Manning in this game too by taking shots at Manning.


Jeremy Hill cost the Saints a first down with his stupid offensive pass interference penalty. This allowed New York to hold New Orleans to a three and out. Michael Thomas could only do so much on third and twenty despite catching an 11-yard reception from Drew Brees.


Eli Manning put together a 10-play drive that lasted 4 minutes and 59 seconds. Eli Manning threw a touchdown to Sterling Shepard. New York led 7-0 after one quarter of play.


New Orleans responded by putting together a 15-play 51-yard drive that lasted 8 minutes and 29 seconds. This drive began late in the first quarter and lingered over into the second quarter. Will Lutz nailed a 42-yard field goal to make this a 7-3 game. New Orleans put together a 9-play drive that lasted 3 minutes and 31 seconds. New York led 7-6.


Marshon Lattimore recovered a fumble. New Orleans got another field goal to take a 9-7 lead. Will Lutz got his fourth field goal of the second quarter right before halftime. New Orleans led 12-7 at halftime.


New York got the ball to start the second half, but they didn't capitalize. Alvin Kamara got hot in the second half with his first of three rushing touchdowns on New Orleans first drive of the second half. He had three rushing touchdowns in the second half which is how New Orleans defeated New York 33-18.


Alvin Kamara had 19 carries, 134 rushing yards, and 3 rushing touchdowns. Kamara also had 5 receptions for 47 receiving yards. Good news for Kamara is Mark Ingram is back from his suspension so this backfield could be deadlier as early as next week.





San Francisco 49ers 1-2-0
Versus
Los Angeles Chargers 1-2-0


Game Recap: LOS ANGELES-The 49ers were supposed to suck without Jimmy Garoppolo. Somehow they made this a game until the Chargers found a way to barely edge San Francisco.


Running back Melvin Gordon was the player of the game in this 29-27 win over San Francisco. Gordon had 15 carries 104 rushing yards, 7 receptions, 55 receiving yards, 22 touches, 159 total yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. Gordon was targeted ten times and while he dropped some passes his pass protection held up and gave Rivers more time in the pocket.




Baltimore Ravens 2-1-0
Versus
Pittsburgh Steelers 1-1-1


Game Recap: PITTSBURGH-Baltimore headed into Pittsburgh as a huge underdog. Everyone figured Pittsburgh would get back to their winning ways at Heinz Field. The former Pitt Panther who transferred to Delaware known as Joe Flacco would have something to say about that.


Joe Flacco threw both of his passing touchdowns in the first quarter. Baltimore led 14-0 after one quarter of play.


Chris Boswell kicked two field goals in the second quarter. Antonio Brown got a receiving touchdown and gave my opponent the lead in Fantasy Football before Pittsburgh tied the game at 14 on a two point conversion. The game was tied 14-14 at halftime.


Baltimore's field goal was the only score of the third quarter. Baltimore also had three more field goals in the fourth quarter. Baltimore's defense disabled Pittsburgh's high powered offense in the second half, but Justin Tucker's field goals propelled Baltimore to victory when Pittsburgh won small victories with third down stops.


Baltimore won this game 26-14. Baltimore improves to 3-1 thanks to quarterback Joe Flacco who was the player of this game. Joe Flacco went 28/42 with 363 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions.

Kansas City made a defensive stop. Mahomes took the field again and led Kansas City downfield for a clutch drive. Kareem Hunt ran it in for the game-winning touchdown. Kansas City won 27-23.
