New England Patriots 4-1-0
Versus
Cleveland Browns 0-5-0


Game Recap: CLEVELAND-Tom Brady is returning from his four game suspension. LeGarrette Blount, Julian Edelman, and Rob Gronkowski are all injured, but all 3 have been cleared for todays game against the Cleveland Browns.


Cleveland got the ball to start the game. New England got pressure on Cody Kessler on third and five.


Tom Brady took the field. Brady began the game completing his first pass in 2016 to Julian Edelman. Brady fired a play action pass to Rob Gronkowski to the very next play. Brady handed the ball off to Blount, Blount ran it for a huge first down.


Martellus Bennett got injured. It was 2nd and goal for New England. Blount ran it in for a touchdown and Tom Brady began the game 4/5 with 65 passing yards.


Andre Hopkins got by nickel corner Cyrus Jones in the slot. That tied the game at 7 as both teams avoided turnovers early.


Tom Brady completed a huge pass to James White which made it first and goal. Blount ran it on the next play. Blount had 6 carries, 21 rushing yards, and 1 rushing touchdown in the first quarter. Martellus Bennett lined up as a running back and caught a screen pass from Tom Brady for a touchdown. Tom Brady began his first 2 drives 8/10 with 129 passing yards, and 1 passing touchdown.


Cody Kessler gave up a safety on a lateral which was a fumble forced by Jamie Collins at left outside linebacker for the Patriots. That made it 16-7 and the Patriots got the ball back from that fumble which resulted in a safety.


Brady was 11/13 with 180 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, and no interceptions to start after a 43-yard completion to Chris Hogan. Brady threw a passing touchdown to Martellus Bennett. Brady was 13/15 185 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions following that drive.


Charlie Whitehurst was brutal. Stephen Gostkowski missed a field goal heading into halftime. Patriots led 23-7 at halftime. Brady was 18/25 with 271 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions at halftime. Both offensive lines did a good job as neither team gave up a sack in the first half. Left tackle Nate Solder and center David Andrews were superb pass blocking, run blocking, and zone blocking in this first half.


Brady was 22/31 with 330 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. The Patriots led 30-7 in the third quarter after that touchdown.


Whitehurst got to the Patriots 30 yard line. A nine yard loss thanks to a sack by Malcolm Brown where he was able to get straight to Whitehurst with Cameron Erving injured at center led to the Patriots pressuring the Browns. Patrick Chung intercepted Whitehurst and the Patriots still led 30-7. Whitehurst was at 61 passing yards after that interception. Kessler had 62 passing yards before his injury. The Patriots led 30-7 after three quarters.


Charlie Whitehurst somehow managed to fire a passing touchdown. Charlie Whitehurst failed to get the two point conversion. Patriots led 30-13 in the fourth quarter following that touchdown.


Tom Brady helped Rob Gronkowski get over 100 receiving yards. After that throw Tom Brady was at 27/38 with 396 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions.

The Patriots kicked a field goal and took a 20 point lead. The Patriots led 33-13. Tom Brady finished the day 28/40 with 406 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions Tom Brady was fantastic in his return for the Patriots.





Philadelphia Eagles 3-1-0
Versus
Detroit Lions 2-3-0


Game Recap: DETROIT-Jim Schwartz returns to Detroit. The former Lions head coach is now the Eagles defensive coordinator for the 3-0 Philadelphia Eagles. I'm interested to see who wins the coaching matchup between the offensive minded Caldwell and the defensive minded Schwartz. Ziggy Ansah, DeAndre Levy, and Eric Ebron all out for this game.


Marvin Jones began this game with a 17-yard reception. Stafford fired another huge reception to Anquan Boldin. Stafford threw a touchdown pass to Theo Riddick. The Lions led 7-0 in the first quarter.


Carson Wentz got the ball. Carson Wentz nearly threw his first career interception. Armanti Bryant had a critical sack on fourth down. The former Brown got to Wentz on third down.


Theo Riddick scored again. The Lions took a 14-0 lead. Detroit got off to a strong start in week 5.


Philadelphia got a touchdown. Detroit made it a 14 point game once again when Stafford fired a passing touchdown to Marvin Jones.


Carson Wentz went 12/14 with 117 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, and no interceptions in the first half. He had a passing touchdown and avoided an interception. The Lions led 21-10 at halftime thanks to Matthew Stafford who was 11/15 with 122 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions.


Wentz completed his first four passes in the second half as the Eagles got the ball in the third quarter. Wentz still had Jason Peters at left tackle and Lane Johnson at right tackle so this was not surprising. Wentz completed a pass to Dorial Green-Beckham on 3rd and 8 to set up a first and goal situation for the Eagles in the third quarter. Wentz completed another pass to Nelson Agholor as the Eagles made it 21-17 and took up 6 minutes off the clock in the third quarter.


Detroit was stopped on their first drive as the defense adjusted under Jim Schwartz. Dorial Green-Beckham dropped a critical catch on third down. The Eagles kicked a field goal and trailed 21-20. The Lions led by 1 point after 3 quarters.


Carson Wentz was 23/29 before he threw an incompletion. Wentz was 23/30 with 226 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. Philadelphia took their first lead of the game. Stafford was 4/5 in the second half, but he only threw for 26 passing yards thanks to Detroit's comfy lead heading into the second half.


Jim Caldwell burned all 3 timeouts. The Lions got the ball back on a fumble recovery. The Eagles went 139 minutes and 46 seconds without a turnover this season. Ryan Matthews fumbled the ball on a Darius Slay hit. The Lions got a field goal before Darius Slay picked off Carson Wentz.


Matthew Stafford went 19/25 with 180 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. Stafford played well enough to win in the second half despite some excellent second half adjustments by Jim Schwartz. Darius Slay limited Jordan Matthews to 4 receptions for 65 receiving yards. Slay also forced a Ryan Matthews fumble when Caldwell was out of timeouts plus Slay intercepted Philadelphia. Darius Slay slayed the Philadelphia Eagles undefeated season. The Eagles are now 3-1 and the Lions improve to 2-3.




Chicago Bears 1-4-0
Versus
Indianapolis Colts 2-3-0


Game Recap: INDIANAPOLIS-Brian Hoyer may start over Jay Cutler if the Bears win today. Both Chicago and Indianapolis are 1-3. Guys like Deiondre Hall, Leonard Floyd, and Eddie Goldman are out for the Bears and that will give the Colts an advantage.


The Bears got a field goal to start this game. Brian Hoyer began the game 6/7 with 55 passing yards on his first drive. Indianapolis tied it at 3 after a 44-yard field goal. The game was tied at 3-3 after one quarter.


The Bears kept the Colts from scoring a touchdown on the first three downs. Colts went for it on fourth down and got a touchdown to lead 10-3. Andrew Luck was 10/13 with 82 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, and no interceptions following that play.


Both teams traded field goals. Colts led 13-6 before Brian Hoyer threw his first passing touchdown. The Bears tied it at 13 before Adam Vinatieri gave the Colts a 16-13 lead at halftime. Andrew Luck was 18/24 with 195 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, and no interceptions in the first half thanks to some great stops by third and goal for the Bears defense against the Colts.


The Colts got a field goal in the third quarter. The Colts led 19-13 after three quarters.


It was a 19-16 in the fourth quarter. The Bears quarterback Brian Hoyer threw a passing touchdown to Jordan Howard. Brian Hoyer went 33/43 with 397 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions.


Andrew Luck threw a touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton. Andrew Luck finished the day 28/39 with 322 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. T.Y. Hilton had 10 receptions, 171 receptions, and 1 receiving touchdown. Dwayne Allen had 6 receptions, 50 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. WIth Kyle Fuller on injured reserve, with field corner Deiondre Hall inactive and Deon Bush injured at strong safety for Chicago, it was easy for Luck to pick apart this secondary. The Colts win 29-23 to go to 2-3 while the Bears fall to 1-4.


Jordan Howard had 16 carries for 118 rushing yards, but Howard was kept out of the end zone. Cameron Meredith also stepped up with 9 receptions, 130 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. The Colts get the win though.





Tennessee Titans 2-3-0
Versus
Miami Dolphins 1-4-0


Game Recap: MIAMI-Miami has a lot of injuries. Arian Foster is out at running back, Branden Albert and Laremy Tunsil are both out meaning Brian Orakpo could have a field day with Ryan Tannehill, but Mike Pouncey returns at center. Koa Misi and Jelani Jenkins are injured and inactive at outside linebacker for Miami. Jordan Cameron is out at tight end. Tennessee has a huge advantage here with Kendall Wright coming back and Xavien Howard is injured at cornerback for Miami.


Marcus Mariota overthrew Andre Johnson on third down. The Titans had to punt the ball to Miami again. Third time would be a charm. Right tackle Jack Conklin opened up a running lane for Marcus Mariota as Mariota ran it into the end zone to make it a 7-0 lead after seeing Byron Maxwell blitz.


Jakeem Grant returned a 74-yard punt return for a touchdown. That tied the game at 7 before Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown pass to Andre Johnson. Jay Ajayi ran it in to tie the game at 14. Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown pass to Delanie Walker to make it 21-14. Marcus Mariota was 11/18 with 108 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. Mariota also had 3 carries, 34 rushing yards, and 1 rushing touchdown at halftime.


Ryan Tannehill did not have 100 passing yards in the first half. Miami not having Albert and Tunsil allowed Brian Orakpo to get by Miami's left tackle.


Jason McCourty did a superb job wrestling the ball away from DeVante Parker. McCourty really dominated in coverage at field corner.


Both teams got field goals in the third quarter. The Titans led 24-17 after three quarters.


Rishard Matthews, the former Dolphin caught a touchdown to give the Titans a 30-17 lead. The extra point was blocked. The Titans won 30-17.


Marcus Mariota went 20/29 with 163 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, 7 carries, 69 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 4 total touchdowns, and no interceptions. On defense 3-4 right outside linebacker Brian Orakpo, 3-4 left outside linebacker Derrick Morgan, and 3-4 right end Jurrell Casey had 2 sacks each. Without Branden Albert or Laremy Tunsil at left tackle, Ryan Tannehill never had a chance to get anything going through the passing game.




Washington Redskins 3-2-0
Versus
Baltimore Ravens 3-2-0


Game Recap: BALTIMORE-Ronnie Stanley is out at left tackle once again. Washington will watch strong safety Donte Whitner make his debut today.


Flacco fired a touchdown to Crockett Gilmore. Washington got 6 on a return by Crowder. Josh Norman got injured and with Breeland out for the season, that means Kendall Fuller had to adjust as the Redskins field cornerback until Norman returned. Steve Smith also injured as both former Panthers got injured.


Justin Tucker extended the Ravens lead. Baltimore led 10-6 after a field goal. The Ravens led 10-6 at halftime.


Washington did a great job adjusting in the third quarter. The Redskins scored 10 unanswered points and took a 16-10 lead heading into the fourth quarter.


Washington won this agame 16-10. Duke Ihenacho had 8 solo tackles, 1 assisted tackle, 9 total tackles, and 1 deflection from a pass breakup.





Houston Texans 3-2-0
Versus
Minnesota Vikings 5-0-0


Game Recap: MINNESOTA-Houston VS Minnesota will be interesting. Stephon Diggs is out for Minnesota while Kareem Jackson the guy covering him is also out. J.J. Watt is out, but Minnesota does not have Matt Kalil at left tackle or Andre Smith at right tackle. There will be a lot of interesting dynamics in this game. Houston needs Jadeveon Clowney, Whitney Mercilus, and Vince Wilfork to win the battles at the line of scrimmage if the Texans hope to have any chance today. Sharif Floyd is also out for the Vikings.


Sam Bradford was 3/4 with 66 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, and no interception to begin the game. Vikings led 7-0.


Matt Asiata made it a 14-0 game after one quarter. Minnesota took a 24-0 lead before Nick Novak got two field goals in the second quarter.


Both teams played better on defense in the third quarter. Houston lost cornerback Jonathan Joseph to an injury. Houston now did not have Kareem Jackson or Jonathan Joseph at cornerback. It was still a 24-6 game after three quarters.


Cordarrelle Patterson caught a receiving touchdown in coverage. He was facing backup cornerbacks though with Joseph and Jackson out. The Vikings took a 31-6 lead.


Osweiler threw a touchdown at the end of the game to DeAndre Hopkins. The Vikings won 31-13.


Sam Bradford went 22/30 with 271 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. Minnesota has a bye week in week 6 after starting 5-0. Their opponet in week 7 is the Philadelphia Eagles. The team that traded Bradford to Minnesota was the Philadelphia Eagles and they welcome Minnesota to Lincoln Financial Field in week 7 after the Vikings bye week next week.




New York Jets 1-4-0
Versus
Pittsburgh Steelers 4-1-0


Game Recap: PITTSBURGH-Both Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg are inactive meaning if Ryan Fitzpatrick gets benched after 1 passing touchdowns and 9 interceptions in the last two games, then Geno Smith will play today. Marcus Gilbert is out at right tackle meaning the Jets have a chance to get some pressure on Ben Roethlisberger if their outside linebackers get by Pittsburgh's offensive tackles. I don't trust the left tackle from Army. Ryan Harris, who they brought in and Jerald Hawkins also out at offensive tackle.


The Jets began this game with a field goal. So much for my prediction with the Steelers shutting out the Jets.


Ben Roethlisberger threw a long pass to Sammie Coates. Steelers got a touchdown off that pass and led 7-3 after one quarter.


Jets scored a field goal in the second quarter. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall before Ben Roethlisberger threw a touchdown to Jesse James. Steelers led 14-13 at halftime.


The Steelers got a field goal in the third quarter and led 17-13. The fourth quarter began with Ben Roethlisberger firing a touchdown pass to Antonio Brown. The Steelers led 24-13 after that passing touchdown. Ben Roethlisberger went 6/6 on that drive.


Ben Roethlisberger threw another passing touchdown to Sammie Coates. Ben Roethlisberger went 34/47 with 380 passing yards, 4 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. Roethlisberger had a field day with Revis out of the lineup. Le'veon Bell had 66 rushing yards and 88 receiving yards on 9 receptions which is why he dominated in fantasy leagues. Antonio Brown had 9 receptions for 78 receiving yards. Sammie Coates had 6 receptions, 139 receiving yards, and 2 receiving touchdowns. New York falls to 1-4. Pittsburgh improves to 4-1.





Atlanta Falcons 4-1-0
Versus
Denver Broncos 4-1-0


Game Recap: DENVER-Atlanta has one of the top offenses in the NFL while the Broncos have one of the top defenses. Paxton Lynch makes his first career NFL start today.


Atlanta had a huge kick return to start this game. Devonta Freeman ran it in for a rushing touchdown to give Atlanta a 7-0 lead. Matt Bryant kicked a field goal to give Atlanta a 10-0 lead after one quarter.


Brandon McManus and Matt Bryant both got field goals in the second quarter. Atlanta led 13-3 at halftime.


Ricardo Allen picked off Paxton Lynch in the third quarter. Matt Ryan threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Tevin Coleman in the third quarter. Atlanta led 20-3 after 3 quarters.


Denver outscored Atlanta 13-3 in the fourth quarter. Atlanta still ended up winning 23-16.


Matt Ryan went 15/28 with 267 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, and no interception. Devonta Freeman had 23 carries and 88 rushing yards. Tevin Coleman had 4 receptions, 132 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown despite splitting carries with Freeman. Atlanta wins 23-16 as both teams are 4-1 with the Vikings being the only unbeaten left.




Cincinnati Bengals 2-3-0
Versus
Dallas Cowboys 4-1-0


Game Recap: DALLAS-DeMarcus Lawrence returns from his 4 game suspension with Dallas. Adam Jones returns to Dallas where he once played for the Cowboys.


Ezekiel Elliott ran it in for a rushing touchdown. Dallas led 7-0 after one quarter.


Dak Prescott had both of his touchdowns in the second quarter to put Dallas ahead 21-0. Dak Prescott went 18/24 with 227 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, 1 rushing touchdown, and no interceptions. Dak Prescott is 11 pass attempts without an interception away from breaking Tom Brady's record for most passing attempts without an interception set by a rookie quarterback. Tom Brady had 162 attempts during his rookie year. Prescott is currently at 152 after this week.


Ezekiel Elliott ran for another rushing touchdown in the third quarter. Elliott had 15 carries, 134 rushing yards, and 2 rushing touchdowns even without Dez Bryant. Ezekiel Elliott became the first running back in Cowboys history with three consecutive games of 100 rushing yards. I was amazed that neither Dorsett or Emmitt had 3 consecutive games of 100 rushing yards despite their amazing consistency.


Dallas led 28-0 after 3 quarters. Cincinnati scored 2 touchdowns in the fourth quarter thanks to Brandon LaFell who caught both receiving touchdowns from Dalton. Cincinnati falls to 2-3. Dallas improves to 4-1.





Buffalo Bills 3-2-0

San Diego Chargers 1-4-0
Versus
Oakland Raiders 4-1-0


Game Recap: OAKLAND-Oakland hopes to win their first game at home today. San Diego may fire head coach Mike McCoy if they lose in Oakland and then lose a home game to Denver on Thursday Night Football in week 6.

Melvin Gordon caught his first career receiving touchdown. Gordon put San Diego ahead 17-9.

Late in the third quarter on 4th and 2, Derek Carr threw a touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree. The Raiders went for a two point conversion and got it. The Raiders led 27-24 after 3 quarters.

New York Giants 2-3-0
Versus
Green Bay Packers 3-1-0


Game Recap: GREEN BAY-Ben McAdoo used to coach Aaron Rodgers early in his career. Now he has to coach against him. Dominique Rodgers-Cromarie and Eli Apple return. Damarious Randall and Sam Shields are both inactive.


Green Bay put together a 16 play 75 yard drive that took up 8 minutes and 48 seconds. Aaron Rodgers fired a passing touchdown to Jordy Nelson to make it a 7-0 game.


Aaron Rodgers threw a pick at the end of the first quarter. Oliver Vernon had a unnecessary roughness call that resulted in a pick. Green Bay threw a touchdown, but it was called back.


The Giants tried to do something on their next drive. After a failed second drive, the Giants got a field goal on their third drive.


Aaron Rodgers went no huddle. DaVante Adams gave Green Bay a 14-3 lead. Josh Brown hit a 41-yard field goal. The Packers led 14-6 after that Giants field goal. The Packers led 17-6 at halftime.


Josh Brown got the only points in the third quarter on a field goal. The Packers led 17-9 after three quarters.


Mason Crosby responded with a field goal for the Packers in the fourth quarter. The Packers took a 20-9 lead after that field goal. Green Bay took a lot of time off the clock, but had to settle for another field goal.


Odell Beckham Jr. scored a touchdown at the end. The Packers won 23-16. The Giants fall to 2-3 after starting 2-0. Green Bay is now 3-1 on the season.


My player of the game is Kenny Clark. Clark recovered a fumble in the second quarter. On offense, David Bahktiari dominated Olvier Vernon at left tackle. The offensive line stepped up for Green Bay, but Bahktiari was fantastic.




Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2-3-0
Versus
Carolina Panthers 1-4-0


Game Recap: CAROLINA-Cam Newton was inactive. Tampa Bay had Jacquizz Rodgers coming in as a third string running back.


Tampa Bay led Carolina 6-0 at halftime in a defensive game. Roberto Aguayo had the only points in the first half.


Cameron Artis-Payne had 2 rushing touchdowns in the third quarter that made it a 14-6 game. Brent Grimes intercepted Greg Olsen in the third to prevent a 21-6 lead.


Jameis Winston threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Mike Evans. Tampa Bay went for 2 and tied at at 14 at the end of the third quarter. Jameis Winston went 18/30 with 219 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, and no interception.


Roberto Aguayo missed a field goal in the fourth quarter, but made a field goal at the end. I think both Brent Grimes and Vernon Hargreaves III dominated in coverage despite horrendous play by their safeties which allowed Greg Olsen to have a career high 181 receiving yards. Kelvin Benjamin was limited to 5 receptions for 70 receiving yards thanks to Grimes ability in coverage.
