 The NFC will be the focus as we look at the first 4 games of each team in the NFC divisions. With only a 16 game regular season every game matters and the first quarter of the season is just as important as the last. Lets look at some teams that have started out hot, teams that have startedslow and some teams that are right in the middle. 


NFC North:



Green Bay Packers 3-0

  • Next Four games -
  1. @ Dallas Cowboys - 
  2. Detroit Lions - 
  3. Oakland Raiders - 
  4. @ Kansas city Chiefs -      The Packers new head coach Yell has come out the gate firing on all cylinders, putting the league on notice that he intends to bring the Packers what is has never had in NFASL history, a championship. He is doing this with an all around balanced attack. With a top 10 offense and defense Coach Yell isn't asking Rodgers to carry the load like some coaches may be tempted to do. It will be interesting to if he can still not rely heavily on Rodgers as the schedule gets tougher. His combined oppenents schedule going into week 4 is 4-8.  

Detroit Lions 1-2

  • Next Four Games -
  1. Bye Week
  2. @ Green Bay Packers -
  3. Minnesota Vikings -
  4. New York Giants -   The Lions have not found their idenity yet on offense to start the season. They haven't ran or passed well putting their defense in bad situations. The first 2 games were not how you picture the season started if you are Coach Musa, who predicted a superbowl this madden. Seems as the Lions might have found confidence after beating the Eagles 42-6 last week. If they have any chance of accomplishing that then they better find out what kind of offensive team they plan on being in a hurry because reigning MVP Patrick Maholmes is waiting for them in Arrowhead.     

Chicago Bears 1-2

  • Next Four Games -
  1. @ Oakland Raiders -
  2. Bye Week -
  3. New Orleans Saints -
  4. Los Angeles Chargers -   The Bears and Coach JD have to be kicking themselves over crucial turnovers in back to back games to start the season, most of them coming in the redzone to make things worse. Another 3 turnovers in the redzone last week  agaist Washington has the Bears lucky to even be 1-2. As talented as the defense is they can only carry the team for so long through crucial mistakes. Not having a running game has made them reliant on the pass and young Tribusky doesn't seem ready to carry a team so they better try to establish a running game going into the bye. 

Minnesota Vikings 1-2

  • Next Four Games -
  1. @ New York Giants - 
  2. Philadelphia Eagles -
  3. @ Detroit Lions -
  4. Washington Redskins - The Vikings problem is simple: they have to get some stops. They are giving up the most points in the league which is unacceptable for one of the more talented defenses in the league. They have stars on every level of the defense and Coach Koko needs them to start playing like it. The turnovers aren't helping either as the defense finds itself in tough spots. They got to finish drives as they are moving the ball but its not leading to points. A big game is coming up vs the Bears so we will see if they can clean up their mistakes. 


NFC West:



Arizona Cardinals 1-2

  • Next Four Games - 
  1. @ Cincinatti Benglas - 
  2. Atlanta Falcons - 
  3. @ New York Giants - 
  4. @ New Orleans Saints -      The Cardinals after starting the season with a 54 point explosion have cooled off, scoring 14 points in back to back games. Turnovers have been a problem but that can be expected with a rookie qb. David Johnson is having a pretty good so far and the Cards look to rely on that going foward till their number 1 pick Kylar Murray is ready to take that next step. Not a lot of expectations for this young team, the focus will be on building the team for next year. 

Seattle Seahawks 0-3

  • Next Four Games -
  1. Los Angeles Rams -
  2. @ Cleveland Browns -
  3. Baltimore Ravens -
  4. @ Atlanta Falcons -         The  Seahwaks have simply just been bad. Most of that being that Coach Iccy had to show up late to the season. Not too late to turn it around but the road has gotten tougher for them after an 0-3 start. The journey of a 1,000 miles starts with the first step. In this case thats getting their first win vs the Cardinals this week. 

San Francisco 49ers 3-0

  • Next Four Games -
  1. Cleveland Browns -
  2. @ Los Angeles Rams -
  3. @ Washington Redskins -
  4. Carolina Panthers -   The 49ers and Coach Kaliko have to happy with how the season started as the stand undefeated going into the bye week. Thier rolling through the competition and look to take that momentum into a heavyweight matchup vs the Browns after their bye week. It will be their first real test and I know the fans can't wait for that NFASL rivalry. Something to watch is if they have the wide recievers on offense to beat the top teams, the one weakness you can point at is they are 20th in passing. With Jimmy G being the highest paid player on the team, having passing being the weakness can't be something they are happy about. 

Los Angeles Rams 1-2

  • Next Four Games -
  1. @ Seattle Seahawks 
  2. San Francisco 49ers -
  3. @ Atlanta Falcons -
  4. Cincinatti Bengals - The Rams defense is still in training camp because they haven't showed up to the season yet. They are last in points given up and yards as they just gave up an embarrassing 62 points last week vs the Browns. The defense will have to look in the mirrior and make some changes. The offense is doing its job led by Jared Golf and Brandin Cooks but when your defense can't stop a traffic cone theres not much you can do. I look for Coach Jboc to switch things up. In fairness the Rams have had the toughest schedule so far but thats still not an excuse for the defense being this bad. 


AFC South:


Tampa Bay Buccaneers 0-3

  • Next Four Games -
  1. @ New Orleans Saints -
  2. Carolina Panthers -
  3. Bye Week
  4. @ Tennessee Titans -        The Buccs are headed in a bad direction this season as they have been on the wrong side of 3 non-competitive games. Jameis Winston having 1 year left on his deal was entering a decision year if his career would be moving foward with Buccs but he actually hasn't had a bad year so far. This will make it an interesting desicion in the offseason wheather they keep him or not. The Buccs will face the Rams in week 4 and if they lose here they might want to start gameplanning for next year.

Carolina Panthers 2-1

  • Next Four Games -
  • Jacksonville Jaguars -
  • @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers -
  • Bye Week
  • @ San Francisco 49ers -   The Panthers responded to a shootout loss in week 1 against the Rams by winning the last 2 games. The defense led by star linebacker Luke Kuechly has stepped up these last 2 games showing their fans that week 1 was an outlier and they still are one of the top defenses in football. Cam Newton has had a great start and is looking like MVP Cam which is good news for Coach Nick because the Panthers made the superbowl Cam's mvp year. The Panthers need more of the same if they are to keep pace with the powerhouse Saints. 

Atlanta Falcons 1-2

  • Next Four Games -
  1. ​@ Houston Texans -
  2. @ Arizona Cardinals -
  3. Los Angeles Rams -
  4. Seattle Seahawks - The Falcons are having all kinds of trouble against the pass as they ranked last in pass defense. They have also given up over 40 points two out of three games to start the defnse. If their defense can turn it around they might be able to make some noise as their offense is filled with weopans for former mvp Matt Ryan to use. They better do it fast because the Saints and Panthers are looking really good to start the year.  

​​New Orleans Saints 3-0

  • Next Four Games -
  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - 
  2. @ Jacksonville Jaguars -
  3. @ Chicago Bears -
  4. Arizona Cardinals - The Saints are flexing their muscle on the league as their defense has been stingy and their offense is doing what it wants in the run and the pass. With a really good oline and a backfield that is led by Brees and Kamara the Saints are going to be tough to stop. The Saints have been able to take care of the ball better than anyone in the league with only have thrown two intercetions so far. If you can find a flaw to how this team is playing let me know. 

NFC East:



Dallas Cowboys 1-2

  • Next Four Games -
  1. Green Bay Packers - 
  2. @ New York Jets - 
  3. Philadelphia Eagles - 
  4. Bye Week      The Dallas Cowboys took two divisional blows to start the season from the Giants and Washington. Never good to start 0-2 especially when its divisional games as those could be tiebreakers down the road. It doesn't get any easier for the Boyz as they head to one of the hardest places to win a game and thats New Orleans. A win here could propel them to a season changing run. Winning a game that no one expects you to win always boost the team confidence sky high and after losing to two rivals they could use that. To do that they need to figure out how to get the offense back on track especially the run game. 

Washington Redskins 2-1

  • Next Four Games -
  1. New England Patriots -
  2. @ Miami Dolphins -
  3. San Francisco 49ers -
  4. @ Minnesota Vikings -   Washington started off the season the opposite of the Cowboys as they racked up two division wins early. No better way to start than that but they did take a slight step back as they lost a home game to the Bears last week. Still they have had a good start and look to make a statement against a team they have struggled with and thats the New York Giants. They are headed to the Meadowlands with the top defense in the league and when you are playing a divsion road game that doesn't hurt to have.  

New York Giants 3-0

  • Next Four Games -
  1. Minnesota Vikings -
  2. @ New England Patriots -
  3. Arizona Cardinals -
  4. @ Detroit Lions -   The New York Giants have started the season letting teams know that they are more than Odell Beckham Jr. In an offseason where they lost one of the best players in football and were written off by many they have came out with a chip the size of New York on their shoulder. They are averaging a crazy 47 ppg as this could be one Coach Shooter's best seasons yet. That being said the combined record of their first three oppenents were 1-8 but the good news for them is their schedule doesn't get too much harder. 

Philadelphia Eagles 0-3

  • Next Four Games - 
  1. New York Jets - 
  2. @ Minnesota Vikings -
  3. @ Dallas Cowboys -
  4. @Buffalo Bills - Nothing new here. Not much more to say about the Philadelphia Eagles that hasn't been said over the last few years. They have the talent but haven't been able to utilize that talent to say the least. I'm sure teams have already called the Eagles about the projected number 1 pick.
