32 Thoughts From Week Five of the 2019 NFL Season

1. ARIZONA CARDINALS (1-3-1)

The Cardinals picked up their first win of the season against the winless Bengals.

Does anyone else assume that Kliff Kingsbury has the same accent as Matthew McConaughey?

2. ATLANTA FALCONS (1-4)

The Falcons lose again. This time allowing 53 points against the Texans.

With every mounting loss, the future becomes more and more cloudy for this squad.

3. BALTIMORE RAVENS (3-2)

The Ravens needed overtime to beat the Steelers. 

Lamar Jackson threw 3 interceptions, but a division win on the road is a division win on the road.

Earl Thomas threw a head to head hit on QB Mason Rudolph. No flag on the play.

4. BUFFALO BILLS (4-1)

The Bills must be the most boring 4-1 team in NFL history. They beat the Titans 14-7.

This week, on Bills Mafia…

5. CAROLINA PANTHERS (3-2)

Kyle Allen has led this team to 3 straight wins. Allen is winning by limiting mistakes and getting the ball to Christian McCaffrey.

6. CHICAGO BEARS (3-2)

Bears fans didn’t think there was a quarterback worse than Trubisky.

Enter Chase Daniel.

The Bears lose to the Raiders in London, and don’t seem to have any answers on offense.

7. CINCINNATI BENGALS (0-5)

The hapless Bengals allowed Kyler Murray and Co. to run all over them, allowing 514 total yards.

This team has a lot of deficiencies.

8. CLEVELAND BROWNS (2-3)

Another bad loss. This team does not have the leadership it needs to win.

9. DALLAS COWBOYS (3-2)

The Cowboys have seemed to come back to Earth after starting 3-0. Turnovers and penalties plagued them against the Packers.

This was funny:

10. DENVER BRONCOS (1-4)

The Broncos finally get their first win after losing two in a row on walk off field goals.

Has been a feisty team every week this season.

11. DETROIT LIONS (2-1-1)

The Lions were off this week and go to Green Bay Monday night in a game where the winner will gain the NFC North lead.

12. GREEN BAY PACKERS (4-1)

The Packers won convincingly in Dallas on Sunday backed by four touchdowns from Aaron…

Jones that is. This team has a legit back now to complement their MVP quarterback.

13. HOUSTON TEXANS (3-2)

The Texans finally explode for 53 points against the Falcons. Deshaun Watson is proving doubters wrong each passing week.

Does this mean anything?

14. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (3-2)

The Colts stunned the Chiefs in Arrowhead. This team is ready to make some noise in the AFC. Jacoby Brisset does enough to win each week.

15. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (2-3)

The Jaguars had a chance late in the game, but the magic of Minshew’s mustache ran out.

16. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (4-1)

The Chiefs prove that they are beatable after only scoring 13 points against the Colts.

Is the book out on how to stop Mahomes?

17. LOS ANGELES CHARGERS (2-3)

You can throw this team in there with the teams I don’t understand. Melvin Gordon was back on the field, but the Chargers still lost to the winless Broncos.

18. LOS ANGELES RAMS (3-2)

I personally think that Jared Goff is overrated, but McVay gives him the tools he needs to succeed. This team will have to make some adjustments defensively, however, as they lose two in a row allowing a ton of points in the process.

19. MIAMI DOLPHINS (0-4)

The Dolphins technically didn’t lose this week, as they were on their bye. They play the Redskins next week in what should be the worst game of the year. Some one has to come out with a win.

20. MINNESOTA VIKINGS (3-2)

This team is full of highly paid receiver drama. First Adam Thielen yells at Kirk Cousins, then Diggs sits out practice as trade request rumors fly around.

They did win their game this week though.

21. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (5-0)

Another week, another Patriot win. They have had an admittedly weak schedule to this point, but they have taken care of business thus far.

22. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (4-1)

Teddy Bridgewater is doing what is asked of him and has led the team to three straight wins despite the absence of Drew Brees.

When Brees comes back, watch out league.

23. NEW YORK GIANTS (2-3)

Danny Dimes and co. were suffocated by the Vikings defense, not producing much.

An October 27th match up between Darius Slayton and Darius Slay could be interesting.

24. NEW YORK JETS (0-4)

This team can’t get any type of offense going without Sam Darnold. The Jets QB’s were sacked 10 times by the Eagles.

25. OAKLAND RAIDERS (3-2)

The Gruden Grinders win again. What is this team’s best case scenario? Are they actually a playoff contender?

26. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (3-2)

The Eagles pick up their second straight win and are now tied with the Cowboys for the NFC East lead.

27. PITTSBURGH STEELERS (1-4)

Can’t help but to feel for Steeler’s fans (and Mason Rudolph). This team is now turning to a guy named Devlin Hodges to be their starting quarterback. They signed Paxton Lynch to be the back up. Not looking good in the Steel city.

28. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (4-0)

The 49er’s thoroughly dominated the Browns on Monday night football. Kyle Shanahan is finally getting the most of this team. We will see if they are still leading the NFC West in six weeks or so.

29. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (4-1)

Russell Wilson very well may be the NFL MVP this year.

30. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (2-3)

Jameis Winston has played much better as of late. Interesting to see how he finishes, as the Bucs have a decision to make as whether or not he will be the starter in the future.

31. TENNESSEE TITANS (2-3)

This team could look great one week, then terrible the next. I don’t think Mariotta is the answer at QB.

32. WASHINGTON REDSKINS (0-5)

I give the Browns a lot of crap, but this might be the REAL worst franchise in sports.

This whole organization is a dumpster fire.
