game of the week

Las Vegas at the LA Chargers

Big-time Monday game between 3-0 Raiders (plus-3 1/2) and 2-1 Chargers. Las Vegas averages a league-best 471 yards, although aided by two overtime wins. But we throw a late touchdown with Bolt quarterback Justin Herbert.

lock of the week

Tampa Bay in New England

During Tom Brady’s time in New England, the Patriots were at least as often a seven-point domestic underdog: none. The Buccaneers are the seven-point favorites and Brady’s mindset is predictable. He wants to destroy his old team.

Detroit in Chicago

The Bears set back offensive football in last week’s loss in Cleveland, which ended with 47 yards (the second lowest in team history since 1940). The Winless Lions (plus-three) are on the better side now and coach Dan Campbell gets his first win.

NFC Around: Tom Brady Returns to New England on Peak of All Time Passing Record

Kyusung Gong, Associated Press

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady (12) smiles before the Los Angeles Rams’ NFL football game on Sunday, September 26, 2021 in Inglewood, Calif.

Brady close to record Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady is facing New England for the first time since leaving the Patriots in March 2020. Brady needs 68 passing yards to become the all-time leader of the NFL, which is currently held by Drew Brees (80,358). The top five are Breeze, Brady (80,291), Peyton Manning (71,940), Brett Favre (71,838) and Philip Rivers (63,440). A win placed Brady as the only quarterback to defeat all 32 teams along with Breeze, Manning and Favre. Additionally on the Tampa Bay milestone front, Rob Gronkowski needs 16 yards to climb to fifth place in receiving yards by a tight end (currently 8,558).

Dallas “D” kind of better. New Dallas defensive coordinator Dan Quinn has already been a big influence on the Cowboys’ defense… sort of. They lead the league with eight takeaways and are in first place with a plus-five turnover margin. The Cowboys had 23 takeaways in 16 games last year. But they enter Sunday’s home game against undefeated Carolina, finishing 26th in most yards allowed (402.0) and defending second-worst passes (331.7). The takeaways, however, cover a lot of warts.

Amazing Cardinals. Is Arizona Real? The Cardinals are 3-0 and have led their opponents 103-65, including 69-27 in road wins over Tennessee and Jacksonville. They’re not raising it well (3.9-yard average), but six players have at least 10 catches and quarterback Kyler Murray has an 113.4 passer rating (though four interceptions). The next three games will help the Cardinals become a contender—or even a run—at the Rams (Matthew Stafford playing the Lights out), versus San Francisco (who will block Nick Bosa?) and Cleveland (who will block Miles Garrett?). ) )

Around the AFC: Need time for Kansas City to enter the game in Philadelphia? Yes.
