Week 3 - Preseason Review

PHI @ CLE - This was a rather uneventful game.  With a score of 0-5, there was not a lot to cheer for.  The only real thing to comment on was the scare of Tyrod Taylor hurting his hand.  It was a nasty looking fall, but he returned later in the game.

NYG @ NYJ - Eli played some meaningful minutes, but he QB rating was still below 100.  This should be a trend throughout the season.  And, Darnold continues to look good, but this is the preseason.

DEN @ WSH - Welcome back Peterson.  He rushed for an avg of 5.1 yds per carry and looked great.  But, he also showed flashes last year.  Keenum played solid with the 1's and Kelly looked decent.  But the real story is Lynch, who is now third string and playing terrible.  Don't be surprised if DEN gives up on him.

NE @ CAR - Again, not much to talk about with NE.  They never show anything, however they do keep cutting WR.  This week it was Britt.  CAR suffered a scare with Cam briefly going down early, but he returned to the game.  Don't expect to see him play until the season opener.

DET @ TB - I am really not sure what to talk about on this game.  Maybe a 21 pt comeback by the DET, but it is the preseason and it was done by guys who are likely to be cut.  So, does it really matter?

SEA @ Min - Cousins passed for a lot of yards, but it did not translate into leading the game.  SEA showed that an offensive line is desperately needed.

GB @ OAK - This game is another one in which there is not a lot to talk about.  Carr made a brief appearance in the game and lit it up on 3 passes and then he was gone.  Rogers did not play.  So, nothing else matters.

KC @ CHI - I cannot figure out KC yet.  The KC 1's struggled against the CHI 2's.  Ang Mahomes had big numbers, but struggled at times.  I think this could be a roller coaster season for them.

TEN @ PIT - Big Ben played a little and looked great.  PIT will be hard to beat this year.  They have Super Bowl written all over them.  Analytics show TEN being a borderline playoff team.  It will be difficult with the Texans and Indy having QB's back in the mix this year.

SF @ IND - All you need to know about this game is that Luck is back and looking good.  He alone will will Indy 3 games this year.

ATL @ JAX - Ryan looked terrible for ATL, and Bortles looked terrible.  I can see Bortles struggling in the preseason, but Ryan?  You have way to much offensive talent for that.

BAL @ MIA - Jackson looked good at QB for BAL as did Tannehill for MIA.  However, MIA is in deep trouble if Tannehill goes down which seems to be a reoccurring problem.  I see Osweiler and a top 3 pick in the 2019 draft for MIA.

NO @ LAC - Mostly backups in this game.  Brees and Rivers played briefly, but did not show a lot.  They are both proven and will lead their teams to the playoffs.

CIN @ BUF - Allen looked bad, but his offensive line looked worse.  If he does not have enough time to throw, BUF will wish they had a mobile Taylor at QB.  CIN Ross looks to be a great compliment to Green.  Too bad, Dalton is throwing them the ball.

ARI @ DAL - The Cowboys did not start anyone worth watching on Offense.  And Rush, is not a very good second string.  If Dak goes down, look for a high draft pick in the Cowboys future.  ARI is getting a lot of preseason turnovers, but it is preseason.  Lets see if a trend is starting.
