Here is What Have We Learned from Week 5 of the 2014 NFL Season, thanks to AP Pro 32 for photo & help in this article.
- Brian Hoyer has shown that the Browns has made the right choice of him starting over Johnny Maziel. Hoyer bring the Browns back vs. the Titans in Nashville 29-28. The Browns have looked improved since Hoyer took over the job last season before he was hurt, the Browns can try to avenge their wee one loss in Cleveland vs. the Steelers this Sunday.
- The Giants & mainly Eli Manning looking back in form, after getting beat up the 1st two weeks of the season, the Giants have won three straight & looked good doing it, now the NFC East Schedule starts for the Giants big time starting with this Sunday vs. the Eagles on SNF.
- The Pats aren’t dead yet, most should have not count them out, mainly because of the AFC East, but they showed Sunday they still can rise to the test as they stomped on the Bengals on SNF, the Pats now have the Bills Sunday, the Winner gets the lead in the AFC East.
- The Panthers are still pretty good at home vs. the NFC, I had the Panthers beat the Bears at 1st, but talked myself out of that pick last week because of the Panthers injuries, but their defense showed up & Cam Newton did enough to win, the Panthers tho get to play another AFC North team in Cincinnati on Sunday.
- Same old Bears, Lions & Bengals- Teams that are not ready to make the next step, out of these 3 teams that lose on Sunday, the Bengals was the worse, just getting beatdown in Foxboro vs. the Pats 43-17, the Lions had more kicking troubles & the Bills escaped with a 17-14 in Detroit & the Bears could not take advantage of the Panthers & loss in Charlotte. Sadly for the Bears I see another L coming as they have to travel to Atlanta, while the Lions go to Minnesota & the Bengals host the Panthers on Sunday.
- After Andrew Luck, who is the 2nd best QB in the AFC South, who knows? It’s not Ryan Fitzpatrick in Houston, it’s not who ever in Tennessee(Jake Locker & Charlie Whitehurst) or in Jacksonville Rookie Blake Bortles. Out of these teams, Houston could challenge the Colts, we will see Thursday, but the Texans need a better QB to move in & maybe at the moment they don’t have a answer.
- The NY Jets are playing like Oakland Raiders East, the Jets went out to San Diego & stinking up the joint with a 31-0 Grade A beat down vs. the Chargers, but what worse was Geno Smith & Teammates the night before going to watch a movie instead of Game tape & missing a team meeting. Bad News for the Jets is that they now get Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. After that? Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Both in a span of five days. All I can say for Jets Fans is pray, lol.
