Welcome to the Truda Report everybody. Today I'll be giving my thoughts on what has me most interested in the NFL right now. Tomorrow expect an article on Dwayne Wade and where I think he fits best. Also, make sure to share this article as it really helps TTR grow.
Patriots Comeback Victory:
A lot of people are using this win as a reason that the Pats are going to be the best team in the AFC this year. I understand that New England did a great job by coming back, but this should not be a game we look at and admire for Belichick's squad. Twice on the teams final drive Houston had a chance to end the game, once by forcing a fumble on Brady (the Pats eventually recovered the ball) and again by almost picking off one of his passes. Those two plays are a more accurate representation of how that game went for New England. The Houston defense was all over Brady, forcing turnovers left and right, and if it wasn't for broken coverage on two plays on the Pats final drive the Patriots would be 1-2 today. The Pats haven't been anywhere near perfect, so I think it's going to be interesting to see if this struggle continues throughout the year.
Chicago Steals a Game Versus the Steelers:
Chicago has been surprisingly good so far this year. Week one they almost knocked off the Falcons (currently 3-0), and now they just beat the Steelers. I'm not saying Chicago is going anywhere this year, but how is it that one of the least talented rosters in the NFL is keeping games close against the NFL's elite? I want to see more of this Bears team as the season goes on.
Kansas City Stays Unbeaten:
The Chiefs are currently one of two unbeaten teams left in the NFL right now (the Atlanta Falcons are also 3-0) and a lot of people are jumping on the hype train. This teams offense has looked more than potent with Kareem Hunt tearing up opposing defenses, as well as Alex Smith hooking up with his receivers on a 77.4% rate. This teams defense also looks really good, allowing just 19 points per game, which is 12 less than what the offense is putting up per game (31). I think that Kansas City has a shot to make some noise this year due to the Pats not looking as sharp as usual, and the Steelers and Raiders both suffering with poor defenses. I think they'll be fun to watch, especially in their Monday Night Football match up against the Redskins this upcoming week.
