it is yours truly.
Every day at better be getting back to you guys getting ready to do some ah, previews of the NFL games this week.
I'm gonna start off with the early one in the box and the Panthers that, uh who, as we know they play.
Just a couple weeks ago, the Panthers came time to the wire was a real boring game to start out, and then it kind of picked up in which Bucks made a goal line stop on the Panthers, so nonetheless.
Let's dive into this game.
We have the Bucks, Who are, I believe, two and three, who take on the Ah three and two Panthers.
So the Panthers are now three no under Kyle Allen and have started to get things going a bit.
But I'm going to talk about the Bucks first and see what they're all about.
The Bucks have been averaging 29.
4 points per game, which ranks fourth amongst all NFL teams.
That's a pretty good the box.
Also do have to account for Kyle Allen, in which they played Cam Newton.
Last time they played the Panthers.
They won that match up with Cam Newton playing.
So I think that could easily win a match up against UM, Kyle L.
In which the Panthers have been really relying and Christian Caffrey quite a bit.
And that's that was the game plan on how to stop them last time they played, how the Bucks won that game, essentially.
So the box passed for 274 past yards, a game that ranks 12th.
Ah, the allow 29.
6 points per game.
That rings fifth most, So they do let up a lot of points per game.
Their secondary is pretty weak.
They they've been struggling lately.
They started off pretty good against the Jimmy G, and they picked him off.
I think they had a pick six early on.
But ever since that week, one game, they've just looked pretty pretty bad.
The boxer averaging 109 rush yards, which you know isn't terrible.
They should be, you know, it ranks right? And that 19th.
So, you know, right, that middle pack? Um, it's basically a split between Ronald Jones and Peyton Barber.
They literally split between, like 50 yards each and then one person shares and they get a touchdown between the two, so I just don't like either of them going forward to the rest of the season.
It's just a tough play, but nonetheless they allow AH, league high 339 yards passing, which is first.
That's quite a bit the 49 or not foreigners. The Bucks.
That is probably because they let up 400 I want to say 60 something for under 50 yards toe Jared Goff a couple weeks ago and they just let Teddy Bridgewater throw for 300 on them, and they have not looked good at all in their secondary.
So, um, that's gonna be the key for the Panthers.
Winning this game is that Kyle Allen convey his pass attack going and get things going for him.
But, um uh, let's talk about long.
Let's keep talk about their offense.
They, ah, their rank.
12th in the NFL.
Their past black is 21st over all these air, all PFF grades.
I'm giving you guys.
They, um, they there run block brains.
10th so they do have a good run block.
That's probably why they do have 104 109 yards rushing That's not awful like I noted, but they could certainly do better, especially if they had, you know, a dominant back, not just half of running back in Peyton Barber and Ronald Jones combined.
So their defense has been pretty good, especially well.
I should say the run defense has been pretty good.
They have looked phenomenal.
Each week they held Christian McCaffrey.
Last time they played in check.
Healing had 16 carries, 37 yards.
Last time, they played doubts in absolute.
That's how they won the game, really, and they stopped him on the goal line.
But I'm McCaffrey as we've seen.
He's gotten things going.
He's been lights out.
Just been going crazy lately, especially for your fantasy team.
Do I think, um, he's gonna have a solid game? Yeah, I think he will.
But I think he's gonna be a little bit slower and you're not gonna see nearly what you've seen from a cafe in the last two weeks.
I think it's gonna be a similar game toe.
What What it was when they first played the box.
I think he's gonna have, you know, 20 carries fixed 16 to 20 carries, something like that or I should say, you know, 15 to 25 touches, which is about realistic, Probably 2025 20 touches for Christian McCaffrey.
And you know, that's all the bucks got to do is contain him and stop him because he's really been getting the winds for, um, that team, Essentially.
So he's gonna be the big key for, Ah, the Panthers.
As we've been seeing lately.
The Bucks run defense does rank.
Second, though they have.
They've been just forced via Vega has been very, very good, Um, returning from injury last year.
Devon White is back.
He did play in the first game.
He wasn't really too big of a factor, but they he did get banged up, and now he is healthy again.
So he will. He's back in good to go.
Their defense ranks 20th overall.
So it's I mean, it's not terrible, but it's not, you know, good or you know, Okay, I guess it's just right on the Virgin, you know, write bad, you could say, but they're run.
Defense is very good, and this is a team they're playing that runs the ball to get the winds, so if they can stop the Panthers.
How they did last time.
Then they could surely get ah, win.
They're coming off a tough loss at the Saints, but, you know, they had to tough road games back to back.
And for them to take one of those two was the absolute win for the Bucks.
They won against the Rams in Los Angeles, and then it they lost that New Orleans.
So Ah, they're home for, well, not really home there in London, but it's technically a home game for the Panthers.
But nonetheless, uh, um, the The Bucks passed the ball about 60% of the time.
They run the ball 40% of time.
Jamis, Winston! Here's the thing.
That's kind of you might want to know.
He has six point 44% of turnover worthy plays each gate, so that's quite a bit 6.
44% is kind of a high number for turnover percentage.
You wanna have that down in below threes, twos or ones, But, uh, Jamis Winston can you know, not turn the ball over like he's been doing? I think he could definitely ah, have a great game and carry this team to victory, but it will be kind of on the road, I guess in London, it's gonna be a weird game for, um, these games are always weird, but, you know, it should be a good one.
I'll, I'll be watching it.
Let's talk Panthers.
They have no Kwan short this time, so I know how much of a difference he'll make.
But he was definitely a role player role, defensive tackle guy who, you know, couldn't make a difference.
And in last game we saw Greg Olsen terror the Bucks apart for six catches, 110 yards.
He just looked phenomenal.
Um, he's been, you know, a little bit slower ever since that game.
He hasn't done much.
He I want to say he didn't get a single reception last week.
Um, he's been not really too efficient.
It's been the CMC show, which eyes what The Panthers will try to keep it.
And if the buckskin stop that, then they'll probably win this game.
I'm the Panthers average 25.
8 points per game.
That ranks 11th.
That's pretty good.
They, um there they allowed 21.
4 points per game it's right that also, ironically, ranks 11th in the league.
So they're right and at number 11 points for and points against.
So I guess you know in that top 12 for both, obviously, their past yards, they were average 249.2.
This is Kyle Allen and a little bit Cam Newton.
You know, he hasn't been throwing a whole lot.
Hey, it's been a lot of check downs in a lot of simple passes, but can he throw the ball? Of course.
So he's gonna definitely need to do it this game.
And that's how the Panthers will really take the next step.
I guess you could say, because McCaffrey will be on lock down, Um, the Panthers rush for 143 yards.
That ranks fourth in the NFL, and this is basically all Christian McCaffrey.
We've some ah, Reggie Bonnafont breakaway runs, but this is mostly Christian McCaffrey doing all this work.
He is just a workhorse, and you know he's a beast, and that's part of why they're ranked fourth in rushing.
Um, the pit, the run blocks and Panthers is not good at all. Rights.
27th which you know should certainly be better if Chris McCaffrey's their main focal points.
I think that's something they need to work on, especially in the draft.
Maybe add some players.
But if Christian McCaffrey could run through this, you know, 27th ranked offensive run block line.
I can absolutely dominate on any line.
And that just goes to show that you know he doesn't have a problem just with a bad off its line.
So if the Panthers ever lose alignment, don't count him out.
Um ah, let's talk defense for the Panthers.
They allow 197 past yards per game.
That ranks fourth.
That is pretty good.
They only allow are they allow 134 point for rush yards per game.
That ranks 24th.
So the rushing is a little bit up their butts.
Good thing the Bucks are past heavy team, so I think they're gonna be a little bit slow down, in which Ronald Jones and Peyton Barber will have to carry some extra load or, you know, have extra carries our work.
But the Panthers run defense ranks ninth.
Their past rush ranks sixth on their coverage ranks fourth.
So all very, very good.
Um, they've just been a lot better on defense, especially in the secondary.
Their cornerbacks have been playing out of their mind, especially Ed Reed.
They've been playing very, very well, but nonetheless Chris God when Mike Evans our force.
And that will be a juicy matchup to watch.
Ah, when kept clean.
Kyle Allen pays past rating is 1 15 When he rolls outside the pocket or under the under pressure, it drops to a 85 overall.
So yeah, it drops a little bit, but not significantly.
Cow Allen throws 6.
73% of turnover worthy plays each game.
So that's right up there, too.
So I guess that counters out.
Um, uh, thing whatever.
I don't even want to say I lost my train of thought, but ah, so that concludes the Panthers and the box batch up.
I am taking the bucks plus 2.5.
Um, and I will take the under on this game.
I think it's just, you know, London games are always weird, and they're always gonna be a little off and just, you know, I'm not too confident either team.
So, actually, I'm more confident the box.
But I think either team in scoring a lot of points.
That's why, um, let's talk about the Seahawks versus the Browns.
The awful, awful Brown's as of lately.
Baker making what is going on Now they are home playing Seattle, relatively tough defense to stud pass rushers and Jadeveon, Clowney and Ziggy Answer.
Um, they should be doing a lot better, and they only have two combined Saxes entire year between both of them.
I know Ziggy has been banged up a bit and been out, but man, it is so, so weird to see them just not doing much at being a Lions fan.
I know Ziggy's stud, and I know he can get 12 sacks, 10 sacks a year, no problem.
So I really expect them to both turn it on later on the season because it's not like they're gonna finish with two combined sex the rest of the year, so they're gonna eat sometime.
I just don't know when and against a poor Browns pass blocking team.
I think it could happen here.
They could rattle Baker Mayfield there, real fast edge covering defensive ends.
So that could be.
I think that would be the key to success for the Seahawks.
But, uh, yeah, I will be traveling to the East Coast Thio play an early game.
They're going to be playing one o'clock.
Standard tops standard time and eight or no, they'll be playing 10 o'clock.
m. Pacific time. So that's 10 a.m.
Their time, as a recent history has shown that hasn't made a whole lot of difference a za little bit.
But recently in the past, you know, a few years it slowly that East Coast West Coast time zone change hasn't made too big a difference.
Seahawks also have extra rest because of the Thursday Night Football match up.
So I guess I really counter out that East Coast West Coast travel time.
I think they're going to be well rested.
They had extra time to prepare extra time to prep.
Ah, you know, this game, the money the Browns were on Monday Night football.
So, you know the Seahawks were just sitting back scouting.
I'm watching him and it was just extra time.
Essentially to scout the Browns because, you know, they were planning on watching that game in the first place.
Being it was, you know, the only football game up.
You know, football players probably like to watch football when they're not doing anything.
Ah, the Seahawks scored 26.
8 points per game.
That race eighth amongst all NFL teams.
That's a very good top 10.
That's a big part of Russell Wilson.
He has been just been going crazy.
Russell Wilson and M V.
P candidate right now absolutely bawling out looking phenomenal.
Um, I think it's him.
Mahomes and that's stick.
Just kidding about that last part.
But Matt Stafford could certainly make a big statement.
If he beats Green Bank, I will get to that game later on.
Um, probably Monday.
But that would be an awesome breakdown.
Still definitely want to see that on Monday Night Football breakdown.
But let's get back to this game, all right? Ah, the Seahawks.
They're also allowing 23.
6 points per game.
That's point a bit and that ranks 18th.
They're up there.
They do let up a decent amount of points.
Ah, really, they haven't had a whole lot of, you know, shutdown games.
The only game they had was two weeks ago against the Cardinals.
They loud and score 10 points only.
That's pretty good.
But, um, that was the Cardinals.
So nothing crazy.
Each team had, like the Bangles.
They posted 20 points.
Steelers 26 points.
They won 33 27 Cardinals.
Like I said, 10 points.
And then last week, the Rams posted 29 Greg's Airline should have made a 32 in a victory, but he just missed it.
So the Seahawks are formed one, and they're taking on the two and three browns.
Um, this is gonna be a good match up, but I think you know Seattle's gonna squeak away with this, and I fixed yells feeling more hot.
Russell Wilson also has not thrown an interception yet, which that's crazy. He's.
I know he hasn't played.
The toughest defense is, but five weeks in.
That is very good.
He's played, Ah, two road games, three home games now on the road again.
So we'll see if this changes.
Um, I think that is a ward and greedy Williams are expected back for the Browns.
Those of their stud cornerbacks.
But Seattle, their past block, has not been good.
And I don't know how Russell Wilson has to run interception. Yet.
Their past box ranked 28th and Wilson's just been finding a way to, you know, throw perfect passes to Tyler Lockett, the corner of the end zone.
That was absolutely phenomenal.
Oh, my gosh, um, they're the run block is, you know, a little better ranks 12th.
That's probably a big part in why Chris Carson's having six success.
Also, um, he's just a beast all around.
Chris Carson's a monster.
If he could just, you know, keep that ball tight within which he has in years past.
Then you know he will be a stud moving forward.
I love Chris Carson.
I think he's a beast.
I have always had confidence in him and our before this even season started.
I was taken Chris Carson over. James Connor.
Yep, you can look back on my tweets.
I had him all down all day, but yeah, Chris Carson, he should have a solid game again.
You know, kind of poor Brown's run defense.
The Browns run D ranks 31st right now, so they're very, very bad.
They just have not been getting done as of late.
Um, the Browns just got gashed last week by, you know, Matt Morita having Coleman? Um, they just destroyed them.
And if they can, I, Chris Carson easily can.
So, uh, the Seahawks were averaging 281 past year. It's per game.
They're averaging 120 to rush yards per game.
That's why I think Chris Cards got solid game to.
The Russia has been pretty good.
They're only allowing a yards rushing per game and allowing 280 yards past per game.
Um, Baker Mayfield's owned and passing for around 2 50 So I think that's what he's about going to get.
But I don't see him getting into the three hundred's.
Not nearly close.
He's just been playing too bad playing. It's simple.
Ah, the run defense.
Let's talk defense about Seahawks, their defense in general's ranked 17th and that mirrors the run defense, which ranks 17th.
So not terrible, obviously, right in that middle, but certainly can do a lot better, especially with Ziggy Ansah and Jwn Clowney on the hands and Bob Bobby Wagner right up the middle of your linebacker.
So, um uh, their pass rush is ranked 22nd which, Yeah, it should be so much better.
I just that I don't understand.
Um, it will improve.
It will improve those air too talented of guys.
They're just They will get into the groove eventually.
Um, Russell Wilson, when kept clean, is pastoring is a 1 31 under pressure only drops to 1 13 That's ridiculous.
When he's under pressure is passer rating is a 1 13 So it's like, what you gonna do? Defense is, you know, pressure. Russell Wilson.
Make him scramble outside the pocket.
Be under pressure.
He's still out of 1 13 passer rating, dudes. A stud.
Ah, the Seahawks have converted 35.
6% time and third down.
That ranks 20 seconds so they can do a lot better on third down and can improve their.
But as of now, 20 seconds.
Not the best grade.
And that should be a key for the Browns if they can hold him on third down than that would be good try.
Let's talk about the Browns now.
They have one day last of rest because there Monday night Football match up with the 40 Niners in which they took a beating.
Mayfield got pulled.
I threw two interceptions, had a fumble, just looked terrible all around, went eight for 22 barely got 100 yards.
It was just a poor four game.
The Browns are averaging 18.
4 points per game.
That ranks 25th 5th They allow 24.
1 points per game.
That ranks 21st So you know they're letting up a good amount of points and just not scoring enough.
As the record shows, UM, they only have passed for 229 yards, are allowing our I'm sorry.
They allow 220 past yards and allow 150 rush yards.
So their passing game, you know, has been all right.
David able to contain the quarterbacks, but they just lit up a lot of rush yards, and that's probably because they're losing games.
They're in bad game scripts, and the opposing team's on a positive game script and which they could just run the clock out and just have a nisi game.
Um, uh, they rush for the Browns rushing for 112 yards.
Nick Chump, you know he's been really up and down.
He's been getting load all the carries, but it's still, you know, it's I just I don't know.
He could do a lot better.
I feel, especially with the work he's been getting, they're, Ah, run block ranks eighth.
So they do have a good run block, but their past block is not the best. It ranks 19th.
That's probably what Baker Mayfield is constantly scrambling outside the pocket.
One Baker, Mayfield is kept clean.
Is Pastor and his 89.
And then when it drop our when he's under pressure, his past rating drops to 8 22.
3 Yes, I said that right. 22.3.
That's That's just like what? 22.
That's like Josh Rosen.
That's like Mark Sanchez naked.
That's numbers for those guys, you know, like what? How? Oh, my gosh, Baker Mayfield.
Talk about a sophomore slump, but he certainly is talented enough.
I think he's got that raw talent, you know, break out of this and I don't think this is gonna be everlasting for Baker.
He's just obviously in a slump.
And, you know, they go on by next week and then the following three weeks, they have knowing the bills and the Jets.
So three very tough defense is after their bye week and after.
Yeah, so the browns are in for some tough, tough sledding.
Excuse me? All rights.
Um, yeah, that's actually I covered everything, so All right, I'm gonna give you my prediction now with Seahawks.
I think we'll cover this game by at least two points.
I'm taking Seahawks minus one point and 1/2 and I'm gonna take the overall 46.
I'm going to be hopping back on to cover two more games.
Guys, I think I'm gonna do the ultimate Texans versus the Chief's.
I'll preview that one next.
And then, you know, I'll counter it out with a boring game and the Redskins versus the Dolphins.
So I I power game verse a low power king.
Alright, guys, join me in just a minute.
I'll be on in just a minute. Thanks, guys.
