Here are my observations from Sunday’s big batch of NFL action (week four):
Matt Ryan continues to prove he is clutch:
The Falcons are clutch. Thanks to a clutch final drive led by Pro-Bowl Potential quarterback, Matt Ryan, the Falcons are now 4-0. — Atlanta started their final-drive of this game from the one yard-line, as Ryan completed 5 passes for a total of 63 yards on it, than setting up a 40 yard Matt Bryant field-goal, giving Atlanta a 30-28 victory over Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers, in a thrilling game. — I’d also like to give some credit to Carolina Panthers’ 2nd year starting quarterback, Cam Newton who had an impressive game, even in a loss, as he went 15-24, with 215 yards, and 3 touchdowns from Newton.
Maybe the Houston Texans are For Real:
— The Texans, like the Falcons, stand at 4-0 after four games of play in the NFL’s 16 game regular season.
Unlike Atlanta, though, Houston didn’t have to deal with a back-and forth see-saw battle, as they had no problem at all taking care of business, in a lopsided game, winning 38-14 at home in Houston, in Reliant Stadium. — Though, it should be noted that Tennessee did lose their starting quarterback (Jake Locker) to an injury in that game.
Philadelphia erases ugly bird-drop in the eye week 3 loss to Arizona:
— After getting thumped by the Arizona Cardinals in week 3, as the Eagles were able to get rid of a sour-taste in their mouth, by beating NFC East division rival, the New York Giants.
Jets get shut out at home vs. the 49ers:
“It’s the recipe for getting our a$$es kicked” as put by Jets’ head-coach Rex Ryan. — If you think about it though, it’s not like the Jets weren’t ever in the game at all, if you don’t remember, let me remind you that this game was 10-0 for a good part of this game, and then.. KABOOM… 34-0 49ers. — I’d say San Fran definitely got back on track after a loss to Minnesota, 24-13, being the final score.
