Oh, Cleveland. At one point Terrelle Pryor was taking snaps because you have a injury black hole at center. Sheesh. This franchise is a mess. They're a strong candidate to go defeated.

Adam Gase says Ryan Tannehill is the quarterback for the remainder of the season, which sucks for Dolphins fans. He's not good and this team is bad too.

Why is Colin Kaepernick not the quarterback? We have seriously run out of excuses. Blaine Gabbert is not an NFL quarterback.

Brian Hoyer might "Wally Pipp" Jay Cutler but the Bears still need a lot of help to regain any ground in the NFC.

No Chargers, no. Your team is so, so, so bad. This season was supposed to be fantastic for you and it has turned into a nightmare. The latest feather in the cap would be that late botched field goal. Just can't catch a break.

New York ran into a buzzsaw this weekend. The Jets defense allowed 433 yards

Tampa Bay found themselves a lucky victory after almost blowing it. The Buccaneers are not good, that's a fact but they won so *insert celebration.gif*.

The Super Bowl Hangover is real. Carolina is now on the fast track to an early vacation, with Cam Newton on the shelf.

Andrew Luck was superb this week, racking up 300+ yards. The real MVP of Week 5 was Adam Vinateri, who went 5 for 5 on kicks.

The Loins did a thing this week!! They scored late and were able to pick off Carson Wentz, which is something that had never been done in the NFL.

Sunday was indeed the "Marcus Mariota Show" in Miami. Only 163 passing yards but 4 total touchdowns power the Titans past the Dolphins.

Cincinnati is struggling bad. Offensively, they can't seem to fire on all cylinders and that is putting absurd pressure on the Bengals' defense.

Los Angeles has fallen back to Earth after their torrid start to the season. Case Keenum needs to be better if Los Angeles wants to win.

houston
3-2
Houston has seen better days. A few weeks ago, they looked to be taking the South with ease. Now, there are question marks all over. Brock Osweiler has also been ineffective at best.

Washington benefitted from a very, very ineffective Ravens offense but hey, a win is a win at the end of the day.

Passing game was ineffective, run game was ineffective and defensive was ineffective. All a recipe for a 3 game losing streak.

No Carson Palmer, no problem. David Johnson continues to show the NFL that he is a very, very, very talented football player.

Hot damn, the Bills are back (for now, at least). LeSean McCoy looking like a speed demon of old, the Bills defense is smothering opponents and Tyrod Taylor isn't too bad (when he is actually lining up under center).

What an abysmal effort against Washington. Once looking like world-beaters, the Ravens have now resorted to firing their offensive coordinator in an effort to kick start their fledgling offense.

Oakland's defense might need some fine tuning if the Raiders want to make noise in January, but right now no need to worry. These guys are doing something special.

The kiddie Cowboys are doing a number to the NFL. Ezekiel Elliott might be the best running back in the league - and he's showing it with a league-leading 546 yards in 5 games.

Sunday was the Vic Beasley Power Hour in Denver. 3.5 sacks and 2 forced fumbles in 31:08 of work. Atlanta continues to impress us both offensively and defensively.

It was not a pretty victory for the Packers but as they always say, a win is a win. Green Bay keeps up with Minnesota in the North and still finds themselves in control of that first Wild Card.

Carson Wentz's first career interception could not have come at a worse time. Philadelphia struggled all afternoon but found themselves in position to march down for a go-ahead field goal. Then, boom! Interception and game over.

Denver stumbled out of the gate this week against a good Falcons team. It was very clear that Paxton Lynch might need a little more seasoning under center but incumbent Trevor Siemian should return this week. Also, Von Miller nabbed another sack this week.

pittsburgh

Following that Philadelphia stumble, the Steelers have returned to dominant form. Yes, we should note that they beat up on the lowly Jets, but good teams are supposed to do that to bad teams. Pittsburgh is still the upper class of the AFC.

Tom Brady is back and he remembered how to play football. Over 400 passing yards on Sunday, Brady put the rest of the NFL on notice.

My goodness, this Vikings squad is GOOD. Sam Bradford again managed the game perfectly and Minnesota's defense was stellar. For a team missing key parts, there certainly have not been many beats missed in Minnesota.
