We may never understand how the only two wins of the season for himThe Jets came against the Titans and the Bengals, two of the best teams in the AFC.
And you know what? It’s horrible, I love it!
The NFL is almost in the middle of its 2021 campaign, “the greatest of all”, as it was baptized. At the moment it seems that the campaign is about un roller coaster cart, full of shocks and long slopes that several fans have already made vomit with their surprising results.
Just last week the The Jets fell prey to the hatred of Bill Belichcik, who as an evil millionaire ordered his players to have no mercy on the New York team. They received 41 points, while the Bengals defeated the Ravens with a Rocky-style bell.
The world turns faster than Nicholas Copernicus considered. The NFL changed.
The mismatch caused by Week 8 in the Power Ranking is greater than the one we experience every six months when the time change arrives.
The Arizona Cardinals, the team that stayed on top since October 3, slipped a few places down after the home loss to the Packers.
Arizona is that organization that we saw come first, but we all knew that no matter how hard they tried, it was not going to last.
Fate now accompanies the Cowboys. With Dak Prescott out with injury, Dallas dodged the bullets for his sixth straight win.
Are they the best team in the NFC? not for me, but they get closer.
Like old boxing movie The Rams were patient, they kept up the pulse. Again they are seated on the throne and with Von Miller forming part of his defense since this week.
1.- Los Angeles Rams (7-1)
Last week: 3
The Rams posted their fourth win in a row. They have a tandem between Mathew Stafford and Cooper Kupp that scares anyone. Los Angeles has won 43 straight games, including the playoffs, when leading at halftime, the second-longest streak in history. Playing the next Super Bowl doesn’t seem so far away anymore.
2.-Green Bay Packers (7-1)
Last week: 5
In one of the biggest upsets of the week, the Packers beat the Cardinals. A suffocating triumph but victory at last for Green Bay that did not have several of its elements from the receiver corps due to the Covid-19 protocols. The Packers have won seven straight games after losing in Week 1.
3.- Dallas Cowboys (7-1)
Last week: 4
Like the Packers, the Boys are on a seven-game winning streak. They survived their trip to Minnesota without Dak Prescott. Cooper Rush took the balls from below the center and showed that Dallas is finally a well-trained team where names do not matter, any player can make the calls. Defense is part of the league’s elite contingent.
4.- Arizona Cardinals (7-1)
Last week: 1
Without JJ Watt, the Arizona defense was left unprotected so the Packers could establish their running game. After starting the season 7-0, the Cardinals failed to establish a franchise record at 8-0. Likewise, teams don’t win championships in November.
5.- Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-2)
Last week: 2
Visits to New Orleans have never been pleasant for Tom Brady. Beyond the loss to the Saints, which may help reestablish ideas for the champion, there are concerns that tight end Rob Gronkowski is injured again.
6.- Tennessee Titans (6-2)
Last week: 6
It was not a pretty victory for the Titans who survived the Colts, but at least they could take something good for a week that started negative. Running back Derrick Henry will be absent indefinitely with a foot injury. Maybe Henry’s season is over and with it Tennessee’s hopes
7.- Buffalo Bills (5-2)
Last week: 7
The days the players had off due to the bye week, it rusted them during the first half against the Dolphins. In the 50th start of his career, Josh Allen struggled to get into the rhythm, but when Miami did, he no longer knew how to slow it down. This team will rise again like the foam of the sea.
8.- Las Vegas Raiders (5-2)
Last week: 9
It is rare for a team to rise through the ranks without playing. But right now, everything is going well for Las Vegas that despite taking a weekend off drinking piña coladas, they continue to find ways to make everything work out for them. Jon Gruden’s departure is more beneficial than initially thought. It is always good for a racist, misogynist person to leave organizations.
9.- New Orleans Saints (5-2)
Last week: 12
They are a difficult team to understand. Guilty of generating storms in opponents who are theoretically superior, but capable of losing the most feasible matches. They beat the champion and that merit will always be valued.
10.- Cincinnati Bengals (5-3)
Last week: 8
After a painful loss to the Jets, the only thing they can think of in Cincinnati is to defeat the Browns in an AFC North Division game. There is nothing to rescue from last Sunday.
11.- Baltimore Ravens (5-2)
Last week: 11
They needed a break to recover key pieces after the loss at Cincinnati and they got it just in time.
12.- Kansas City Chiefs (4-4)
Last week: 14
Something changed in Kansas City. The team no longer plays with the same winning atmosphere. On Monday night they got a win over the Giants that was uglier than overheated coffee. The defense is still bad like fasting coke, but again they have a .500 winning percentage.
13.-Los Angeles Chargers (4-3)
Last week: 10
The week off they took backfired. At home they were defeated by the Patriots. Former Chargers player Adrian Phillips intercepted them twice and returned one to a touchdown for the loss.
14.- New England Patriots (4-4)
Last week: 15
Nick Folk kicked four field goals for the third time this season. The Patriots no longer have Brady’s polite arm, but they have Folk’s cannon to get points up on the scoreboard.
15.- Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3)
Last week: 16
The Steelers always feel at home in Cleveland. That’s all that has to be said for a party as bad as not dressing up on Halloween night.
16.- Cleveland Browns (4-4)
Last week: 13
Browns defender Myles Garrett decorated the backyard of his home with a Roethlisberger skeleton and had his worst Halloween by looking like a clown.
17.- San Francisco 49ers (3-4)
Last week: 19
On his visit to Chicago, Jimmy Garoppolo played less than 60 kilometers from where he was born. He threw 322 yards and rushed for two touchdowns that helped break San Francisco’s four-game losing streak.
18.- Seattle Seahawks (3-5)
Last week: 20
With Russell Wilson’s return looming, backup quarterback Geno Smith was seen as a virtuous player. Sure, he did it against the Jaguars. I don’t know what value that has?
19.- Minnesota Vikings (3-4)
Last week: 17
After opening with a 75-yard drive, the Vikings were frequently in disarray on offense against Dallas. The best thing about the loss to the Cowboys for Minnesota is that they know they can trust their kicker Hreg Joseph.
20.- Indianapolis Colts (3-5)
Last week: 18
Yet another failure for Carson Wentz as a starting quarterback. He was intercepted in overtime to lead the Titans to victory.
21.- Carolina Panthers (4-4)
Last week: 21
The team still looks bad with Sam Darnold and they miss Christian McCaffrey so much, they won because Atlanta knows how to lose better than anyone.
22. Denver Broncos (4-4)
Last week: 23
As much as they managed to win against the Panthers and managed to break their string of losses, there is still much evidence to say that Denver is the but team in the AFC West.
23.- Philadelphia Eagles (3-5)
Last week: 26
The Eagles snapped a two-game losing streak but did it against the Lions, who, in addition to being the only team without a win so far this season, were very accommodating.
24.- Atlanta Falcons (3-4)
Last week: 21
I don’t know how he does it, but the Falcons always manage to disappoint. Luckily for Atlanta they have the Braves playing the World Series.
25.- Chicago Bears (3-5)
Last week: 22
Justin Fields seemed to play without the bike safety wheels, but unfortunately for the Bears, that team needs a lot more talent to surround Fields. On the defensive without Khalil Mack, there is little they can resist.
26.- New York Giants (2-6)
Last week: 24
They fought on Monday night against the Chiefs, but in the end they fell short as their narrative has been in 2021.
27.- New York Jets (2-6)
Last week: 29
If the Jets can remember anything this season, it’s that they beat the Titans and Bengals, two contenders in the AFC. The rest have been bad news like the injury of his rookie first round, Zach Wilson.
28.- Washington Football Team (2-6)
Last week: 27
This team desperately needs Ryan Fitzpatrick to come back, or better yet, for the season to end.
29.-Miami Dolphins (1-7)
Last week: 28
The Dolphins weren’t competitive against the Bills in the first half. What happened is that Buffalo was slow to find his rhythm. When he did, it was all over for the Dolphins who lose the series on a sweep.
30.- Jacksonville Jaguars (1-6)
Last week: 30
Head coach Urban Meyer keeps making strange decisions. And no, I do not mean dancing in a bar with a woman who is not his wife, but the ones he takes on the field and who shows that his best performance is obtained as an NCAA coach.
31.- Houston Texans (1-7)
Last week: 31
The best thing in Houston is that at least for a few more days, they have baseball. The Astros play the World Series. The NFL season ended for fans perhaps before it started. When baseball is over, the NBA can soothe the sports soul of the city.
32.- Detroit Lions (0-8)
Last week: 32
Against Philadelphia, the Lions didn’t even show heart. The only thing they brag about is that they were brave, but they looked listless on Sunday.
