Week 9 Overreaction and Reality Check: Who is the best Eagles team in the NFL? Ram knocked out of the playoffs? xeno smith extension?

Of all the exciting weeks in the NFL this 2022 season, week 9 could have all been number one. Of the 12 games completed in Week 9, 10 were within a goal (8 or less) in the fourth quarter, and four teams (Jacksonville Jaguars, Las Vegas Raiders, Minnesota Vikings, New York Jets) cleared a loss of more than 10 points. The Vikings, Jets, Los Angeles Chargers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers each got the score to win the game in the last two minutes of the rules. All of these games changed the rough division races across the league as fewer teams began to split from packs. All of this will take shape in the rough later part of the year, but we need to address our overreaction to Week 9 first. Rams will miss the playoffs. Overreaction or Reality: Reality Los Angeles won against Tampa Bay from the bag before allowing Tom Brady to play 6 plays for 54 yards in 35 seconds. Brady threw a winning touchdown pass with 9 seconds of play time left. The win allowed Ram to keep pace with the Seattle Seahawks and hold them 4-4. Instead, Los Angeles sits 10th on the NFC rankings, 2.5 games behind the Seahawks of the NFC West with a 3-5 record. Los Angeles didn’t die in the water, but there are two matches against the Seahawks and they will face off against the Kansas City Chiefs and Chargers as per schedule. Going 2-2 against those teams may not be enough. The Rams will need a few teams ahead of them to collapse at this rate. Geno Smith deserves a long-term expansion in Seattle. Overreaction or Reality: Reality Think it’s time to have a serious conversation with the Seahawks about the future of Geno Smith. After throwing a pick 6 to Zaven Collins in the third quarter to put the Arizona Cardinals 14-10 ahead, the 32-year-old Smith led Seattle to touchdowns for the next three possessions. touch down. The Seahawks are 6-3, and Smith completed 73.1% of the NFL-leading passes, throwing 2,199 yards and intercepting 15 touchdowns in four. His passer rating is 107.2 (4th in the NFL). Seattle has a quarterback for the foreseeable future. That’s Smith. It’s time to sign him. Justin Fields will run 1,000 yards this season. Overreaction or Reality: Reality What Justin Fields did for the Bears attack in Year 2 (the first year of the Luke Getsy system) is amazing. Fields not only developed as a passer, but also became one of the most dynamic running quarterbacks in the NFL. Fields has 91 carries at 602 yards and 4 touchdowns over 9 games, averaging 6.6 yards per carry. After Sunday’s NFL regular season record (178) for a quarterback’s rushing yards in one game, Fields needs an average of 56.9 yards per game to hit 1,000 yards. He’s averaging 66.9 yards per game, so the Fields are gearing up to become the third quarterback to run for 1,000 yards in a season. Tyreek Hill will have 150 catches and 2,000 receiving yards. Overreaction or Reality: Overreaction Tyreek Hill doesn’t feel like it’s slowing down anytime soon. Hill finished with seven catches for 143 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s game against the Bears, crossing the 1,000-yard plateau in just the ninth game. The Miami Dolphins wide receiver made 76 catches for 1,104 yards in the middle of the year. He averages 8.4 catches and 122.7 yards per game. If Hill maintains this crazy pace, he’ll make 144 catches and 2,085 yards this year. Hill is on track towards 2,000 receiving yards, but he will need to average 9.3 receiving yards per game for the rest of the year to reach 150 yards. This task is difficult, but if anyone can do it, it’s Hill. The Eagles are the best team in the NFL. React or Reality: Reality Philadelphia is the only team undefeated in the NFL, leading the NFC East (a division with two teams at 6-2) with an 8-0 lead. The Eagles are the top five teams in points and yards per game and points and yards allowed per game. They did not fall behind in the second half and are leading by double digits in all games. The teams that can challenge the Eagles for the best team title are the Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs, but Buffalo was upset with the Jets on Sunday because Josh Allen had 42 passing yards. The Bills also have a 2-7 record in their one-point game over the past two seasons. The Minnesota Vikings are 7-1 but the Eagles blew them away in the second week. The Dallas Cowboys have two losses, including one to the Eagles. They are 13-3 on aggregate with two losses to Philadelphia. Halfway through, the Eagles are the best team. The Dolphins will win AFC East. Overreaction or Reality: Overreaction The Dolphins are currently 6-0 in games started and finished by Tua Tagovailoa this year, so it’s hard to underestimate what Miami is doing. Tagbailloa also leads the NFL with a passing rating of 115.9. Tagovailoa made 69.9% of passes over 1,980 yards and 15 touchdowns from 7 games to just 3 interceptions. Can the Dolphins beat the division? Miami is third in the AFC East with a 6-3 record, with a 1-1 tiebreaker against Buffalo and a 1-1 loss against New York. Both teams are half a game behind Buffalo for first place. The Dolphins aren’t likely to decline anytime soon, but Miami will have to defeat Buffalo at Orchard Park in December to claim their division title. They also have to beat the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Chargers before that. Miami is a playoff team, but the Dolphins have a long way to go to win the division. The Vikings are the Eagles’ biggest contenders in NFCOverreaction or Reality. OverreactionMinnesota continued to win in close quarters, improving to 6-0 in their one-point game this year. The Vikings won six games with one possession and were +33 points in the fourth quarter. So they are good late in the game. The 7-1 record is a yes, but the Vikings also played 3 games at NFC North. Two of those matches were one-point matches. Currently, only one team that has lost the Vikings has a winning record, and that was the Miami Dolphins without Tua Tagovailoa. Minnesota is on a four-game winning streak against the winning team. Let’s see how good the Vikings are. The Patriots are a playoff team. Overreaction or Reality: Overreaction New England finish last in the AFC East 5-4, showing just how challenging the division can be. The Patriots are halfway behind the Chargers to advance to the final playoffs. They are playing 3 in a row against the winning team and 6 of their last 8 matches are against the winning team. They play the Bills twice and the Dolphins (the team they are trying to win) once more. New England need to do better on offense to keep pace with these teams, even if the defense and special teams are playoff-level. The pass game has to come alive. Tom Brady can still be played in high-level Overreaction or Reality. Reality Brady broke the most tie with Peyton Manning in NFL history with their 55th career game-winning drive on Sunday. The Buccaneers quarterback finished 36 of 58 over 280 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions (79.7 ratings). Was the performance impressive? No, but Brady hit 5 of 6 over 54 yards and won the game in the last 44 seconds with a 35-second touchdown on the last drive (the non-competition was a spike). Brady completed 65.3% passes over 2,547 yards with 10 touchdowns in just 1 interception (grade 90.5) this season. His touchdown-to-interception ratio is 10.0 (NFL best) and he has the NFL best 373 pass attempts uninterrupted (second best in NFL history). Is Brady the same quarterback as the last two seasons? No, but he’s still playing well as a 45-year-old quarterback. He can still win matches for the team.
