This has been an odd NFL season so far. Before the season began most people said the Cleveland Browns and the New York Jets would mail it in this season. True to form The Jets lost to 21-12 to the Buffalo Bills and the Pitttsburgh got by Cleveland 21-18 in the season opening games. In week two Browns lost to the Baltimore Ravens 24-10 and the Jets were blown out by the Raiders 45-20. Then the Jets win two in a row and are a half game behind the New England Patriots in the AFC East standings. The Patriots, the team many thought would go undefeated lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 42-27 in their first game. The Patriots have the league’s worst defense. The Dallas Cowboys knocked off the New York Giants 19-3. The Giants one of the favorites to win the NFL East have not won a game so far. Other teams looking for their first win include the Browns, Los Angeles Chargers and San Francisco 49ers. Two weeks ago teams were arm in arm in protest of what Donald Trump said at a rally in Alabama about players and the National Anthem. We are a fourth of the way through the season and the Cowboys are on the verge of losing as many games as they lost all of last season. The Packers visit the Cowboys Sunday. Imagine what Aaron Rodgers will do to the ‘Boys defense. Silly me I still picked the Cowboys to win this weekend. The Bills are leading the AFC East. Jacksonville, Houston & Tennessee are tied at the top of the AFC South. The Chiefs are the only undefeated team. In the NFC the division leaders are The Philadelphia Eagles and Los Angeles Rams, with Detroit and Green Bay tied for first the the NFL North and Atlanta and Carolina tied in the south. The Panthers and Steelers  have not looked good for their 3-1 records. The Chargers and Giants play each other so one of them should get their first win. What if the game ends in a tie? That would go along with the NFL’s odd season.
