NFL Week 4: Late Game Quick Reactions
Titans (3-1) defeat Jets (2-2), 38-13: The Titans have been a real surprise over the first four games of the season. The team has covered the spread three times, and pushed in their only defeat of the season. That record might change drastically over the new three weeks as the team has upcoming games against the Chiefs, Seahawks and 49ers.
Redskins (1-3) defeat Raiders (1-3), 24-14: The Redskins trailed the Raiders 14-0 early in the second quarter and things were begining to look bleak in Washington. A loss to the Raiders and an 0-4 start would have effectively ended the team’s season. However, things do not get any easier for RGIII and company as the Redskins will have to face the Cowboys, Bears and Broncos over the next three weeks and could wind up starting the season 1-6.
Chargers (2-2) defeat Cowboys (2-2), 30-21: The Cowboys scored 21-points in the second quarter of their disappointing loss to the Chargers and then never reached the end-zone again. That blunder is so effectively the Dallas Cowboys that fans of the team were probably not surprised. The season may just be beginning, but does anyone have any faith in the Cowboys, even if they are playing in the extremely disappointing NFC East?
Patriots (4-0) defeat Falcons (1-3), 30-23: The Patriots were actually an underdog during this game. Yes, a bettor could have gotten two-points on the Patriots. The team does not feel like a juggernaut by any means, but they are efficient and do not beat themselves. Tom Brady and the gang have two tough games coming up against the Bengals and Saints, and after that the team has four very winnable games in a row before a Week 12 showdown against the Broncos.
