Most Surprising NFL Teams Week 9 (2019)Well that was an interesting week. All of the home teams were able to handle business this week. In the US at least. As we enter the second half of the season here’s some teams who got off to a shocking start.
The Top Ten
After a sluggish start the Chargers picked up an impressive win over Green Bay. On top of that Melvin Gordon was a key factor. LA dominated Green Bay in this one as Aaron Rodgers had his worst game this season
The Baltimore Ravens did the rest of the league a favor and brought the New England Patriots undefeated season to an end. The main reason? Lamar Jackson. The dude sliced the Patriots Defense making them look silly. Ravens also locked down the Patriots offense just enough for them to win. This was a statement win for Baltimore who has all but asserted themselves as a top team in the AFC
After looking pretty unstoppable through the first 8 weeks the Packers do that. Lay a dud in LA. Rodgers had his worst game of the year as LA was able to contain Green Bay for a stunning win
The Jets lost to the Miami Dolphins. Yes this is an accurate statement. Sam Darnold was meh and Miami was determined to win and let the Jets win a tank bowl. Are you sure Adam Gase was the best hire? I don’t think so. Congratulations on Buttfumbling your season away.
Yeah they may have lost but God Damn Kenyan Drake had himself quite the debut for Arizona. Kyler Murray is doing well as the Cardinals made this game a hell of a lot closer than it deserved to be
Much to the amusement of the rest of the league the Patriots are undefeated no more. The Patriots defense once thought of as the top Defense in the league was flat out exposed by Lamar Jackson. On top of that the Ravens Defense was able to contain the Pats offense. That’s what happens when you play a real team
Jags what was that? You got absolutely destroyed by the Texans. Gardner Minshew was absolutely awful by that I mean his worst game as a starter and might have given Foles his starting job back. It was fun while it lasted boys.
The Bucs gave Seattle quite a scare. Jamies Winston had a solid day and they were up 21-7. Unfortunately they couldn’t hold on for a win in this one. Definitely put the NFL world on notice
Seattle what was that? You let the Bucs hang around way too long. Thankfully you won in OT. Russell Wilson might have just bolstered his MVP Case however still shocking to see them not only be taken to OT but also trailing early 21-7.
YOU’VE WON A GAME! That alone should be worthy of a spot on this list but then you realize it was against the Jets. You won but at what cost? Tua is a great prize that requires dedication to the tank. You may have just Buttfumbled your own tank. Now the Bengals have 1 upped you guys
