Most Surprising NFL Teams of Week 8 (2019)As we conclude October we reach approximately the halfway point of the season. There were a few surprising results but as in weeks prior once again there were quite a few blowouts. Here’s what I believe were the most shocking results
The Top Ten
Okay guys what was that? When you have to rely on Adam Vinatieri who’s been inaccurate you know you played down to your competition. I was expecting a higher scoring game especially with the momentum they had going
What was expected to be a close game was anything but close. San Francisco dominated the Panthers and once again silenced the doubters. A very convincing win for a scary looking Niners team. The main stars in this one? Tevin Coleman and Nick Bosa. Absolutely haunted Kyle Allen but at least he didn’t see ghosts
Their new addition is really helping to open up their offense, this offense has really improved, their Halloween game was really impressive even with the Cardinals being able to make big plays against their defense
Bears you guys are pathetic. Two teams playing sluggishly and you lose on another missed kick? Seems familiar am I right? Anyway Trubisky is looking worse and worse. What a waste of a Defense
Philadelphia you needed that win badly. Nice to see you actually show up after a week of facing criticism. Honestly everyone was firing on all cylinders in this one. See guys this is what you’re capable of keep it up and you might get a wild card
Now it’s Buffalo’s turn to face the media. After a relatively easy schedule it’s time for them to prove themselves. They did not. Philly dominated as Buffalo couldn’t really get anything going even with a strong defense. This game left a lot to be desired out of the Bills
Well guys what was that? You couldn’t stop Coleman and Kyle Allen threw 3 interceptions. And you better be glad y’all have Christian McCaffery or else you would have been shut out
Derek Carr arguably had his best performance yet. Sure they lost because Deshaun Watson was a God but. Jacobs and Williams had productivity on the offense and there’s a lot to like here. Just no big names for Oakland to rely on
A pretty decent game for Detroit as Stafford led the Lions to a good win. The thing is are they for real? They have potential but they are the Lions. How are they gonna Lion this year?
This was a game I wasn’t expecting to be close. Instead Watson had a clutch moment in this game. Throwing a touchdown after taking a cleat to his face. Houston survives Even though they lost JJ Watt in the process. Closer than I expected but Watson May have just bolstered his MVP case
Well Drew Brees is back. I know they played the Cardinals but they make the list only because the way he played. Several were questioning his decision but he balled out as the Saints thrashed the Cardinals.
