Sunday was a memorable day for New England as Tom Brady eclipsed 187 victories, now the most for a starting quarterback in NFL history. Yet, there was only celebration when the clock actually hit 0, as once again the game was narrow until the last drive.
This past Thursday Tom Brady and the Patriots battled against Jameis Winston’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a short-week matchup. Going into the game from last week, the Patriots had issues in the secondary against the Carolina Panthers, which left many fans worried and questioning how the team could succeed this season. The Patriots did prevail this week in a 19-14 victory, which once again was decided by the final play for the third time in as many weeks.
What a time to be alive. Fantasy is entering week 5 and players are now showing what they provide. It’s time to make those changes to the roster and get trading.
Sunday proved to be a hectic day across the league, with one of the biggest games being in New England when the Houston Texans came to town.
As the Patriots look to defend their title throughout the course of the season, the Chiefs are looking to get past the hump that they could call Divisional-Round exits. The Chiefs gameplan in the Andy Reid era has been consistent with ground-and-pound football; running the ball often and having wide receiver routes primarily as a second option. In the Andy Reid era, there has only been one 1,000 yard-receiving years from a Chiefs wide receiver (this excludes TE Travis Kelce who has multiple). This shows the likelihood of the Chiefs having a true vertical threat; little to none. As long as they have a plethora of solid running backs (Rookie Kareem Hunt, Charandrick West and vet CJ Spiller) paired with Travis Kelce, the offense will still be a threat.
Week 3 of the pre-season brought bad tidings for the New England Patriots. On August 25th, wide receiver Julian Edelman endured a non-contact injury
