The horoscope for the Leos has been better than expected, as Matthew Stafford is earning his money by knocking off two playoff-caliber teams with tough defenses back-to-back. Now comes an excellent chance to take it one step further against the reigning NFC champions.
Here we go again with Aaron Rodgers. Two tackles hurt, Jordy Nelson hurt, the defense still capable of getting lost in a hurry. There’s a ton of him to help this team win, but good thing he can share that burden better with Ty Montgomery.
The Eagles can dig a nice hole for the Giants in the NFC East by winning �� if the Giants don’t dig it themselves. They can’t protect Eli Manning, and Manning at this point is largely useless if he isn’t getting immaculate protection. Philly is catching heat for neglecting the run �� shocking for a team coached by an Andy Reid protege. If they ease the run game into the offense and move the chains, the Giants can find themselves in trouble early.
The Browns opened the week as favorites (for the first time for a road game since 2015), and it’s easy to see why. Do you need a lot of details about this game, honestly? Well, try these: The Colts are one of just three teams that do not have a passing touchdown yet, and they’ve been downed in their end zone (once) almost as many times as they’ve reached the opposing one (twice).
Here were a few more of Saturday’s top NFL Draft-eligible players:
Josh Adams, RB, Notre Dame �� Adams is a big, 6-2, 225-pound junior and pounded out 229 rushing yards on 18 carries in a 49-20 win over Boston College. Adams did not score, however, as junior quarterback Brandon Wimbush scored four times while rushing for 207 yards as the Irish racked up 515 yards on the ground. Adams has been a productive back the last two years and runs with power.
