The Football Five🏈

Good morning to everyone but especially to...


If and the Chiefs had any frustration over last weekend's loss to -- and -- they took it out Sunday night against the with a 41-31 statement win.

The Andy Reid-Patrick Mahomes tandem has produced some masterpieces, and this one is right up there with the best of them, writes NFL guru Cody Benjamin.

As for the Buccaneers, it was a difficult week. They  as Hurricane Ian wreaked havoc on the west coast of Florida, and while they'd never use it as an excuse, it certainly couldn't have helped. threw for 385 yards and three scores, but much of that came with the game out of reach. The running game produced just three yards -- second-fewest in franchise history -- and the defense had no answers all night.

Honorable mentions

And not such a good morning for...


The Ravens could be 4-0 this season. But "could" doesn't mean anything. They're 2-2, and the reasons behind that span far and wide. Sunday, Baltimore blew a 20-3 lead in a 23-20 loss to the that comes with many questions, including...

The Bills obviously deserve credit. After a very slow start, showed why he's the MVP favorite. The Buffalo defense is relentless. But these are games we're used to seeing Baltimore win. Prior to these two huge blown leads, the Ravens had won 75 straight games in which they led by at least 17.

Not so honorable mentions

come back to beat , remain NFL's only undefeated team 🔥

Come wind, rain or shine, shootout or defensive slugfest, air-it-out or ground-and-pound, the Eagles find a way to beat you. The NFL's lone undefeated team showed that once again in an impressive 29-21 comeback win over the Jaguars in .

What's impressed me most about the Eagles is their versatility. They outgunned the  in Week 1, shut down the Vikings in Week 2, imposed their will on the Commanders in Week 3 and now  against the Jaguars in Week 4. The Eagles trailed this game 14-0 early.  threw a pick-six on the first offensive series, and the next two drives resulted in a punt and a turnover on downs. But then they scored on three straight drives and took over on defense.

This is a game the Eagles might not have won last year. It starts with Hurts. This season, he's third in the NFL in expected points added per dropback when his team is trailing, behind only Lamar Jackson and Tua Tagovailoa. Last year, he ranked 14th in that category.

Hurts has always had an uncanny ability to remain calm and rarely let outside factors impact him. Now, combining his own improvement and his much-improved supporting cast with his even-keeled nature, his Eagles are 4-0 for the first time since 2004... when they went on to make the Super Bowl.
