The Chiefs don’t need Mahomes Magic to beat good teams. The Chiefs played the Bills this week in a battle of two of the strongest arms in the game. This game was expected to be a shootout, but the final score was 26-17 Chiefs. Patrick Mahomes was 21/26 for 225 yards and 2 touchdowns, but his defense and Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who rushed for 161 yards, were the main reasons the Chiefs won.

That was a really bad scary loss for the Packers. A lot went wrong for the previously undefeated Packers in their 38-10 loss to the Bucs. After starting the game up 10-0, Rogers finished 16/35 for 160 yards, no touchdowns and 2 picks. He was sacked 4 times and battered all day long. On the other side of the ball, Gronk and Ronald Jones feasted on the Packers supposedly improving defense.

The Bears are being slept on. The Bears are now 5-1 and first in their division after they beat Carolina 23-16. They play really good defense and QB NicK Foles makes enough plays to win the game. But they can’t get any respect and probably won’t until their offense gets a little more productive.

Cam Newton is not Tom Brady. Cam was bad in the Pats 18-12 loss to lowly Denver. He threw for 157 yards, 0 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. We all know that Brady would’ve won that contest on a game-winning drive, but he’s not there any more. Cam is obviously much more mobile, but he has one game this year with over 200 passing yards, and has amassed 2 passing touchdowns and 4 interceptions.

Andy Dalton misfires in first start this season. Anyone thinking the Cowboys won’t miss much with Dak Prescott out may want to reconsider after Dalton looked bad in a 38-10 pummeling by the Cardinals. The kindest thing you can say is the “Red Rifle” looked rusty. Still as bad as the division is, there is still a chance that the Cowboys can make the playoffs.
