And then we all turned our TVs on to a Vikings-Bills game.
Fabulous. What a game!
game of the year? Certainly.
It’s hard to think of a regular season game with so many playoff implications early in the season. The Vikings kept themselves within striking distance of the Eagles, while the Bills’ defeat dropped them from the top seed in the AFC to sixth.
Oh, and the heroics of Justin Jefferson & Co. also mean the Chiefs are back in control of the AFC.
The system has been restored.
This week’s voters are Steven Cerda, Roque Magana, Jared Sapp, Stan Nelson, Zack Gunter, Bryce Carter, Conor Helm, Nate Christensen, Dakota Watson, and myself.
1. Kansas City Chiefs (3rd)
Arrowhead call – Also known as AFC Playoffs – She returned.
2. Philadelphia Eagles (the first)
MVP candidates are dropping like flies this weekend.
3. Miami Dolphin (VI)
They will win the AFC East title.
4. Minnesota Vikings (Fifth)
In my opinion, Justin Jefferson’s catch was the best ever.
5. Buffalo bills (2nd)
Things fall apart pretty quickly in Buffalo.
6. Baltimore Crows (vii)
The Crows have a real shot at the No. 1 seed in the AFC. Their schedule is as thin as Chris Jones’ rough passer call against Tom Brady back in 2019.
7. San Francisco 49ers (VIII)
Jimmy J looked really good Sunday night.
8. Dallas Cowboys (the fourth)
Since when was Mike McCarthy so aggressive?!
9. Cincinnati Bengals (9th)
They are counting down the days until Ja’Marr Chase returns.
10. Tennessee Titans (eleventh)
Ryan Tannehill is back – but the offense still stinks.
11. New York Jets (13th)
No Jets game this week.
12. New York Giants (twelveth)
Got the job done against a poor Texas team.
13. Seattle Seahawks (The tenth)
There were a lot of Seahawks fans in Munich. Shame on the team let them down.
14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (seventeenth)
The failure to play Tom Brady’s trick was astounding. He looked like an old man on a dance floor full of 21-year-old boys.
15th. New England Patriots (15th)
Preparing for the end-of-season fee in the playoffs.
16. Los Angeles Chargers (fourteenth)
If they want to win the AFC West, Sunday’s game against the Chiefs has to be won by the Chargers.
17. Green Bay Packers (22nd) Tied for the highest climb this week
They finally snapped the losing streak. Too little, too late?
18. Arizona Cardinals (xxi)
No one should pay money to watch Colt McCoy vs. John Walford.

Their match window is closing. quickly.

Kenny Pickett looks like a rookie. George Pickens does not.

Last week I wrote, “If they make trouble for the bosses, I will eat my hat.”
My hat stays on my head.
25. New Orleans Saints (xx) Biggest fall this week
In dire need of an overhaul of the attack.
26. Chicago Bears (25th)
Justin Fields looks like the real deal. Must be exciting for bear lovers.
27. Detroit Lions (29)
Their first way wins in eternity. good for them.
28. Las Vegas Raiders (27th)
Derek Carr’s tears injected into my veins.
29. Indianapolis Colts (30)
I can’t be the only Chiefs fan who gets irrationally angry whenever the Colts are on TV.
30. Denver Broncos (26)
Find new ways to lose on a weekly basis.

Don’t expect Baker Mayfield to do the President any favors this week when the Panthers play the Ravens.
32. Houston Tx (xxxii)
I told you last week that I would suffer, right?
