SORT BY Relevancy
Jack and Robert are back, and it's safe to say that neither of them are too happy after what Aston Villa have done in the past week. After a glorious five-match unbeaten run that saw hope revived, Villa managed to get curb-stomped by Manchester City in the FA Cup and rode some Jordan Ayew anger to a two-goal loss against West Ham United.
Goodbye hope, it was nice knowing you.
We get to those matches, of course, as well as this weekend's tilt against Norwich City. Plus, your twitter questions, transfer ratings (hahaha) and more!
You could argue that the NFL is the one league that is closest to parity than others. However, after five weeks you still have six unbeaten teams. Four teams (Green Bay Packers, Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos, Cincinnati Bengals) are 5-0 while two teams (New England Patriots, Carolina Panthers) are 4-0. The lone winless team is the Detroit Lions (0-5).
The biggest news coming out of week five is that Jamaal Charles tore his ACL and is done for the season. The Chiefs have dropped four games in a row and are in last place. Could this put Andy Ried on the hot seat? The New York Giants have rolled off three wins in a row after blowing leads in their first two games. Are they the best 3-2 team in the league? The Seattle Seahwaks blew a 17 point fourth quarter lead. Is the Seahawks reign in the NFC done?
We welcome Jake Turner of the Jake Turner Show to chat NFL football and give his thoughts on these questions and more. Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.
Three of the five unbeaten teams; Green Bay Packers, Denver Broncos and Cincinnati Bengals take their 6-0 record into the bye week. In week 8 the Packers and Broncos will play on Sunday Night. The New England Patriots and Carolina Panters both put their perfect seasons on the line with tough contests. Todd Bowles has sparked the New York Jets to a 4-1 record and will play for first place in the AFC East when they travel to New England. The Philadelphia Eagles have recovered from a shaky start to reclaim first place in the NFC East and travel to Carolina.
The Atlanta Falcons have fallen from the land of unbeaten, but five teams still have zero losses. On a national stage, the Falcons had a chance to prove to America that they were for real. The Saints regained their magic at home by defeating the Falcons 31-21.
The New England Patriots continue to rule the AFC East. Deflate gate came up again as the Patriots traveled to Indianapolis. Different season but same result as Tom Brady passed for 312 yards and controlled much of the game. Andrew Luck returned from a shoulder injury to pass for 312 yards and three touchdowns. The final momentum swing came when the Patriots stopped the Colts on a fake punt that gave them the ball at the Colt 35 yard line. Six plays later the Patriots had a 34-21 lead.
Denver is 6-0 thanks in part to a terrific defense. Peyton Manning threw three interceptions and Karlos Dansby returned one of those for a touchdown. Cleveland fought hard for 60 minutes to force overtime, and had a chance to win in overtime. After a Manning interception, the Bronco defense sacked Josh McCown twice to force a punt. Manning then drove the Broncos down the field for the game winning field goal.
Another fourth quarter collapse cost the Seattle Seahawks. This time the Carolina Panthers overcame a nine point deficit as Cam Newton found Greg Olson in the end zone with 32 seconds left. Both touchdown drives in the fourth quarter covered 80 yards for the 5-0 Panthers. The loss drops the Seahawks to 2-4 as they travel to San Francisco for a tough divisional match-up on Thursday night.
The Cincinnati Bengals continue to win as they defeated the Buffalo Bills 34-21. There was nothing magical or mystifying about this game other than the Bengals breaking open a close game in the third quarter. The Bengals were leading by three entering the third quarter and then scored on their first three possessions of the second half to build a commanding 34-14 lead.
The magical story of no interceptions is over and now the media can focus on the Green Bay Packers defense. Although St. Louis Rams running back Todd Gurley rushed for 159 yards, Nick Foles threw four interceptions and the Packers won 24-10. The Packers defense now ranks third in points allowed per game, only allowing 16.2. Foles was sacked three times, but was under constant pressure and ended the day 11 of 30 for 141 yards. By winning the line early, the Rams fed the ball to Gurley to slow down the pass rush. Subtract the 55 yard galevant, the Packers held Gurley to 3.6 yards per carry. Rookie Quinten Rollins intercepted Foles, in the first quarter, and returned it 45 yards to give the Packers a 14-0 lead. Two interceptions inside the red zone helped secure the victory.
Aaron Rodgers had a ball tipped and intercpeted by James Lauranitis to end his streak at 587 passes without an interception at home. Rodgers ended the day with modest numbers 19 of 30 for 241 yards. The big play was a 65 yard touchdown pass to James Jones. Initially Jones was ruled down at the one yard line but Mike McCarthy challenged the pay. The ruling on the field was overturned and Jones was credited with his fifth touchdown of the year. Eddie Lacey found little running room against the Rams. His long run of the day was eight yards, and he finished with 27 rushing yards. Rodgers led the team in rushing with 39 yards.
The Rams fall to 2-3 and will enjoy a bye week before hosting the Cleveland Browns. Green Bay improved to 5-0 and will host the San Diego Chargers next week.

When you hear the teams Green Bay Packers and Denver Broncos you immediately think of their future Hall of Fame quarterbacks. Peyton Manning has been to the Super Bowl with two different teams. Aaron Rodgers is mentioned as one of the best in the game, at the present time. It is not a surprise that both of these teams are 6-0 but it is how they are doing that is.
The Denver Broncos have assembled a defense that is ranked number one overall in yards allowed. This includes a number one ranking against the pass and number four against the run. The Packers are ranked 14th overall (12th pass, 22nd run). The Packers have negated some of the best backs in the league so far, which has made teams become one dimensional. Points will be at a premium as the Packers are ranked first in the league allowing only 16.8 points per game, and the Broncos a close second allowing only 17.
The Broncos have struggled offensively, currently ranked 29th. Some fans have questioned if Peyton Manning should step aside because of his mediocre play this season. Aaron Rodgers has the Packers offense ranked 11th, but have been average in October. The are still scoring 27 points a game. Both teams have a plus six turnover differential.
This should be a great battle in the Mile High City, but one team will end week eight with a 6-1 record, while the other will stay in pursuit of the perfect season. Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.
