This week’s games ended on a rather sad note as we were reminded of the tragedy that is the life of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. While attempting to board the team bus after the Dolphins loss to New England, center Mike Pouncey was served a subpoena by the Massachusetts State Police for his possible involvement in gun trafficking, regarding playing for the University of Florida as a teammate of Hernandez. It’s being reported that Pouncey is wanted as a person of interest or witness that could help them move their case against Hernandez forward.
Speaking of the struggling New England Patriots, they might want to pull the trigger on a trade over the next 48 hours before the trade deadline passes. It’s been said that Josh Gordon, Hakeem Nicks, Kenny Britt, and Larry Fitzgerald are all up for possible trades if given the right compensation.
With the impending NFL trade deadline Tuesday October 29th 2013, Josh Gordon might have just played his final game for Cleveland, but thankfully for the Browns they made a switch to anyone other than Brandon Weeden for the game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Quarterback Jason Campbell took the reins this week and luckily for fantasy owners this means the return of both Josh Gordon and tight end Jordan Cameron, as both posted decent numbers once again. Ultimately, the results were the same as they were able to challenge the Chiefs, but couldn’t stop Kansas City from being the only remaining undefeated team in the league at (8-0).
Chasing the Chiefs after losing to Andrew Luck last week, Peyton Manning continued on his record setting pace by throwing for 324 yards and four touchdowns to roll the Redskins after falling behind 21-7 early in their game. Completing 71.6% of his passes through the first half of the season, Peyton is on pace to reach 6,000 yards and 60 touchdowns. I’ll bet Roger Goodell has the goofiest grin on his face reading this because his crazy plans to turn the NFL into the Arena Football League is working.
The Cincinnati Bengals were able to extend their lead in the AFC North this week as they stomped the New York Jets and the rookie quarterback Geno Smith 49-9. Andy Dalton was able to find break-out wide receiver Marvin Jones, who caught 122 yards and four touchdowns in the game; as he made a statement in effort to be the No. 2 WR opposite AJ Green going forward this season. Meanwhile, the Bengals defense continued to dominate opposing offenses and shutdown their running games completely. Cincinnati’s defense managed to score two touchdowns and held Chris Ivory & the rest of the Jets stable to under a hundred yard rushing on the day.
As Cincinnati extended their lead in the division, the Pittsburgh Steelers sank further into the cellar as they were shocked by Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor who ran for an NFL record 93 yard touchdown on the first play of the game. Darren McFadden also supplied his best performance since returning from injury and showed a few moments of explosion as he contributed another 78 yards and two touchdowns in defeating the Steelers who blew their chances in this game by missing not one, but two chip shot field goals to lose by three points.
Our growing negative trend of the week is once again the Jacksonville Jaguars performance as they “Tank for Teddy.” This week they laid down in London for Colin Kaepernick, Frank Gore, and Kendall Hunter. The 49ers ran for 221 yards and Kaepernick came away with a 117.7 QB rating. One can only hope that Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater can bring this franchise back to relevancy like Mathew Stafford has been able to do for the Detroit Lions after their own 0-16 season.
