I'm Lourdes on, and this is SportsCastr news.
So the first early games of the NFL has officially been done.
Now, the 4 30 games are still rolling at this point in time.
But I'm gonna go ahead and go over exactly what? The early games, the outcomes, a lot of surprises in this game.
But first and foremost, I want to talk about the Dak Prescott issue.
Um, late in the game against the against the New York Giants, Dak Prescott ran the ball in for a touchdown, and I'm doing so.
Seems to have dislocated his ankle, probably out for the season.
This is a huge it for the Dallas Cowboys, especially with the fact that the Giants right now have the game.
With less than two minutes left in the game, tied at 34 Cleveland right now 21 seconds left, are leading the Indianapolis Colts, 32 to 23 9 of those points given up by Philip Rivers of Pick six and then a safety, a safety that he gave up on his own.
The early games.
We're gonna go ahead and go over these.
We have Miami completely and utterly destroying the San Francisco 40 Niners 43 to 17.
Now, if you told me now, I said in our early stream that it was a possibility that Miami could win this game because they've got a good defense.
But to say they were going to score 43 points against the San Francisco defense, I don't know if I could have went that far, but that's exactly exactly what happened.
Shout out to Joe.
New Beau picking Carolina over Atlanta.
They did so 23 to 16.
Baltimore easily cleaned up.
Cincinnati 27 to 3.
The Houston Texans first game without Bill O Brien get their first win over to Jacksonville.
Jaguars 13 or 14.
Kansas City upset by the Las Vegas Raiders, 42 32.
Ah, lot of people now looking at that division going who's got it? Because Kansas City now looks as though they have.
You know, they're not immortal, right? They can be shot down, and they just showed us how to do it.
Great play by the Raiders.
Arizona taking the New York Jets, as expected, 32 10 and what was at one point, a very close game? Pittsburgh edges out Philadelphia 38 to 29 the Rams take out the Washington football team 32 10.
Again, Not a huge surprise there.
What I am wondering about, I believe the Colts game is now officially over.
It is 23 to 32 to Cleveland Browns.
I personally watched that game.
Uh, two of our guys Adam Arm, Brecht and Keith McPherson are currently locked up in the Giants Dallas game, where the New York Giants have the ball and it's tied 34 to 34.
I am hoping the after this game, one or both of them might join so that we might be able to talk about that game a little bit in depth.
But let's go ahead and talk about the Cleveland Browns.
The Browns Colts game in the first half.
The Cleveland Browns could not run the football, but because of the zone defense and the lack of the defensive coordinator for the Colts Matt Ebert Blues at all wanting to send extra men at all to pressure Baker Mayfield, Baker Mayfield was just chewing up this secondary in that zone defense because they could not get pressure with four early on Baker, Mayfield was just able to sit back and throw the ball left and right.
I think I think the Browns had a total of 27 yards rushing and that's what 16 yards of Baker Mayfield scrambling, and they were up 20 to 10 at half in the second half.
Philip Rivers opens it up with a pick six, making it that much worse for the Indianapolis Colts.
The Browns didn't score until late in the fourth.
Their offense did not score another point and the entire second half until late in the fourth when they kicked.
When they got themselves some points, the Colts D did an exceptional job getting a couple interceptions against Baker, Mayfield and still playing very well against the run, right up until the two minute mark off the fourth quarter.
Where's Kareem? Are not Kareem Hunt, but the backup running back ran the ball down the sideline for 20 some yards and getting the first down and be able to eat up the clock.
That completely killed any hopes that the Indianapolis Colts might be able to make a comeback.
They were Onley down by six.
They needed the ball back.
The defense could not stop them, and the game then was over.
But in the second half, the Colts defense really, really stepped up.
They did allow a little bit more rushing, but they allowed less in the passing game and created a ton of pressure on Baker Mayfield.
But the story of this game was absolutely without any question.
Myles Garrett versus the backup left tackle, the Colts Law Robin Clark standing in four.
The her Anthony Castonzo at left tackle.
This backup left tackle for the Colts is absolutely awful.
I mean, all He was giving up pressure almost every time.
Philip Rivers dropped back almost every time he dropped back, he gave up pressure.
It's unbelievable how bad Philip Rivers was pressure because of that left tackle play.
And that tells you that even though the Colts starting offensive line is so good they have very poor death at the tackle position, the Colts need to go out and find an additional depth to replace in case uh, Castonzo or Brady Smith, either or tackle has to leave due to injury.
I mean, Anthony Castonzo was dealing with a rib injury.
We don't know how long he'll be out.
Hopefully, he won't be out another game, because in this game it was just awful.
The Colts fall to three and two, and the Browns move up the four and one.
Congratulations to the Browns.
We did see the Indianapolis Colts defense play like the number one defense in the NFL in the second half.
We just did not get to see it very much in the first half.
And that's why the Colts really, um, kind of wet the bed there at the end, right? Especially in the first half of the game.
Uh, the Earnest Johnson.
That clutch 28 yard run with only a minute and a half left in the game really sealed the deal for the Cleveland Browns.
They did score a field goal on that, which allowed, which meant that the Colts, then it completely took the game out of the Indianapolis Colts reach.
They could not allow points on that final drive, and yet they did, uh, Thio be fair.
Let's see here some of the stat lines for the Browns.
Kareem Hunt ran the ball 20 times for 72 yards, 3.
6 yard clip, which is way down compared to what he used to have.
Darius Johnson ran the ball eight times for 20 or for 32 yards.
26 of those on that one play at the end of the game, Uh, Andy Jovanovic had two carries for four yards, and then Odell Beckham Jr.
They tried that end around reverse like they did against the Cowboys, where he ran for 53 yards. You got two touchdown.
He ended up with negative one yards.
He got caught in the backfield Colts defense Just too fast, Just too smart to stop for something like that to actually happen.
Baker Mayfield was the story in the first half.
He ended up 21 of 37 247 yards, two touchdowns and those two interceptions coming in the second half of the game.
Jarvis Landry had four catches for 88 yards on nine targets.
Odell Beckham Jr also had nine targets, five catches, 58 yards in Austin.
Hooper had led the team in targets with 10 but only came down with five catches for 57 yards.
The Indianapolis Colts, as I said Philip Rivers was responsible for nine of those Cleveland Brown points.
He was 60 about 60% from the field, 21 of 33 243 yards but two interceptions and no touchdowns.
Jonathan Taylor only carried the ball 12 yards for 57 yards and one tug.
It's a 4.8 yard a clip.
I'm surprised that Jonathan Taylor didn't run the ball mawr in this game.
T Y Hilton finally showed up for the first time in a while.
Hilton finally showed up for the first time all season on 10 targets for six catches, 69 yards.
And Marcus Johnson had his nice little debut.
Three targets, three receptions off three targets for 53 yards.
They did a great job, but like I said, this game was lost due to Philip Rivers on the Pick six and then the safety.
I wanna welcome Adam arm Brecht in from this game that was happening with the Cowboys in Dallas.
It's actually, uh, how that game go.
It's about to be a few legal attempt here for Dallas just completed a pass down the sideline to gallop toe touch there.
The previous play prior to that had a nice little catch on the sideline as well that God, I'm about to midfield a za Giants guy.
I'm gonna go ahead and point out that there was a clear hold on the play on the offensive line that they didn't they didn't call.
It's not me escape going it out.
That's if you go back and watch the tape on it.
You'll see that.
So that's on the previous play. That one under review.
They ruled that complete.
This one here is gonna go under review as well.
But with just three seconds to go, they'll be down inside the 20 looking to kick a chip shot field goal to, unfortunately, put the Giants down, though in five.
And with this one, I believe Dallas will go thio the division lead with the two and four records.
So heartbreaking one here for the Giants.
But a good game nonetheless, as we head towards the Sunday night matchup.
Well, you know what I mean.
I don't think many people really gave the Giants much of a chance against the Cowboys anyhow.
Now, earlier today I said, watch out for the Giants.
They have a defense, and Daniel Jones does have weapons It's just whether or not he can keep from turning the football over.
But from what I understand, that was not the case.
You had a fumble earlier. Sack fumble.
Listen, there's a lot of pressure on him in this one.
The defensive front for the Cowboys is still a decent team.
They struggle a bit as far as the secondary for them.
So you know, really, coming into this one when when you take a step back at it, you talk about one of the one of the worst.
Defense is in league in Dallas.
But go back and look at who they played right.
They played the Cleveland Browns after they started clicking, played the Atlanta Falcons, played the Seattle Seahawks, so there's a number of good offenses they went up against.
On the flip side, the Giants, who were only averaging 11 points Coming into this, they played the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Even if it is, the less than a healthy 49 are still a very strong team there as well.
Also played the Ram.
So you figured it was gonna meet somewhere in the middle for me.
I thought maybe this would keep a little bit lower on the giant side of things.
They got a pick six in the first half.
Number of turnovers in this one.
And unfortunately, it goes. Looks like here.
Listen, we don't know for sure it could head toe over time, but looks like it's gonna go the way of Dallas.
And I mean, really, you know, to be fair here to be objective about it, the NFC East is a mess of a division.
The fact that this is a tight game and when as close as it did, is really just indicative of the struggles of all these teams here as he will hook that one just inside the upright.
So that officially will go final 37 34 Cowboys over the Giants.
There's some positives here if you're a Giants fan and listen, I don't wanna bury the lead, by the way, um, Dak Prescott went down in this one.
He was scrambling, trying to get down in the red zone for the Cowboys.
Got his ankle rolled up underneath him look like a pretty gruesome injury.
Went to a local hospital to get evaluated.
So it really thoughts with him.
As far as that goes, Aziz.
You and I think it talked about a couple of times around player injuries.
That's never what I hate seeing it.
I don't care who it is.
I don't care what rivalry it is.
I don't want to see any player ever getting injured.
So that looks pretty bad for Dak Prescott.
So hopefully is okay.
And Andy Dalton, of all of all people.
He comes on to help help believe the Cowboys to what ends up being a three point victory.
So they did kick the field goal.
That one? Yeah, just kicked it.
Not unlike the last field goal that tied the game in 34 pieces.
Airline likes toe.
Hang that thing a little bit outside and just ease it back on inside the upright.
So that, officially, is the final 37 34 as time expires now division leading two and four Dallas Cowboys Giants, My New York football Giants Oh, and five hey, staring down the barrel of the top top top pick here.
Let's still relying this thing, but I know we got a lot of other things to talk about, and I know your colts.
You're probably talking about them coming up a little bit short there, unfortunately on still a good matchup later tonight? Yeah, sooner than we realized.
Is there any games that has happened earlier? And I already went over all the scores and I covered my Indianapolis Colts game, which I was very, very frustrated over.
I knew that the Colts We're gonna have issues against Myles Garrett with a backup left tackle.
I knew he was awful and I was absolutely right.
It was because of that backup left tackle that Rivers ended up giving nine points to the Cleveland Browns.
I picked six and a safety.
Uh, too much too much pressure.
He was pressured on 60% of his drop backs, and and more than half of that was because of Myles Garrett.
Now there are some big upsets that I thought came out today.
Um, you got the Raiders upending the Kansas City Chiefs.
Any thoughts on that? Well, I mean, listen, if you go back and there's been some talk around just that the Kansas City Chiefs offense hasn't been as potent early in the year as it was the last season.
I think you know you're bringing a young new running back in, Hilaire, you know that you're probably gonna start to develop things a little bit differently.
Um e it's surprising when you talk about it being specifically the Raiders because they've been a team that have been up and down now.
Rugs came back for them.
Henry rugs the third there.
He had a couple of big plays in that one long touchdown.
So you know, the Raiders are predicated on offense before defense, obviously.
So from that standpoint, I think if you look at Kansas City, that's where you get your eyes were gonna go first.
If it's a strong offensive team, then you can expect it to be a battle in some of these games.
I mean, listen, four and one.
Okay, you know, Kansas City still in a great spot nothingto worry about.
It's a good win for the Raiders, though.
On their side of things, they have to feel pretty good about where they are getting a couple of nights victories.
Their quarterback play hasn't been strong.
That's nothing new really for them.
So you know, I if I'm if I'm candy, If you're Kansas City's fan base, okay? You wish you should have won it.
And that's okay that you lost it.
Three other one that I actually really look at in the earlier games when I scanned through that Panthers Falcons game.
Now I know that the Falcons now are officially in Dumpster fire territory here.
But Carolina, right, you're facing, Ah, high powered offense.
I know that some injuries on Atlanta side of things Matt Ryan wasn't particularly stellar in this one.
You're three and two now.
Carolina, you're you're in competition here to be looking at those playoffs.
So under rookie head coach Matt Rule, he brought in a lot of college level minds.
Thio help fill out that coaching staff, and so far, it's paying off.
Teddy Bridgewater getting a chance to be a starter again.
Davis filling in for Christian McCaffrey.
Maybe the Panthers would like to get a little bit of a return on that $16 million a year contract now, seeing what a replacement piece could do for you, but that's a nice one for Caroline.
I'm not gonna worry about what will probably be a coach firing, I assume there in Atlanta come Monday morning, but just a great victory for them They've been a surprise, I think, to start this year and three and two there in the mix.
So that's another nice one to see.
How about your thoughts on the Miami Dolphins steamrolling the San Francisco 40 Niners? Yeah, you know, Listen, I think we kind of soured a little bit on Miami early in the season, right that you like the head coach last year.
You like the hustle you like, the heart that they showed.
And then you still thought, though this is a relatively bad team, the bigger concern to me and I think, actually was talking about it with with my next partner, Doug, who was watching some of the games of you today.
Uh, if you are the San Francisco 40 Niners, you think that we kind of are a regardless of who the quarterback is, we can still win games because our defense is strong because we have nice weapons. Nice balance.
Garoppolo didn't look so good in his first game back off injury, and he threw up e mean lame duck lobs to the defense and for that team with that system and that defense, that's the thing.
You're absolutely not supposed to do so you can chalk it up as a Hey, first game back.
Don't worry about it, but in the NFC West, that's very competitive.
You are all the sudden looking up at the Seattle Seahawks, who look high powered with M V P level, Russell Wilson under center.
So things are looking a lot shakier coming off of a Super Bowl loss for San Francisco.
Then you may be first thought.
It will be interesting to watch them and for Miami steak, staying competitive and really coming out.
Not going in the mouth early.
And I think that that's what they're good at.
They have a physical mentality of that team that they can really hang their hat on.
Lawrence, you are muted right now.
Just there we go.
Thank you for the great.
I was tryingto make sure I went to Munich, so I didn't accidentally interrupt you.
Uh, there's been a lot of clamor around NFL fans about wondering if two was coming in and Ryan Fitzpatrick just steps up against the San Francisco 40 Niners defense on just like them on fire.
22 or 28 350 yards, three touchdowns, zero interceptions.
It's a beauty, clean, clean day for him.
Absolutely fantastic from from Ryan Fitzpatrick.
And again we talked about this.
I think I wanna Thursday night stream.
Maybe we're doing our pregame there around.
You know, you look past Fitzpatrick so much because he has been a journeyman quarterback.
But you can make the case.
This a guy that just never gets an opportunity to be somewhere for a handful of seasons to really be able to take hold of something.
He's done a great job in Miami.
We know the to A is gonna come on here it some point.
But with that win, what does that put them now that that gives them that, That gives them a two and three mark.
You know, you could still be competitive and by the way to on one away, even though you take that off the table a little bit in this kind of season, so they've been competitive there.
They're still able to stay competitive in that division right now.
The Patriots are running away with it coming off of their loss, and their games obviously been pushed back here, and they now receive the bye week from the NFL.
So you know you can still get in the mix there If you're Miami and for San Francisco again at two and three in that division to the doesn't see, the wheels are coming off because they're gonna get healthier.
But you're gonna probably have to rely on that bonus.
Why that bonus playoff spot that's been opened up now just to get yourself into the dance because you're not gonna get there via winning the division.
Those head to head matchup. They're gonna loom larger now.
But it's difficult when you look around that division and how things are playing right now.
All right, let's move on to tonight's game.
Um, since we got just a half an hour before we got kicked off between the Minnesota Vikings and the Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota won and three.
But I think they are kind of a tricky one.
Their offense has been clicking like crazy over the last three weeks outside the Indianapolis game, Um, they're averaging something like 420 yards a game.
Uh, cooks been running the ball very well.
Justin Jefferson stepped up and has been having great rookie campaign at wide receiver for them.
But then you look at the Seattle Seahawks Russell Wilson having an M V P type season, and the defense is really coming on and making plays when it is necessary.
What are your thoughts on this game? You start over there on Minnesota side of things and you said it.
You know, Cook's doing a fantastic job when you have a strong running game.
That's a great way to always know that you can turn yourself back around if you start out a little bit slow now in terms of the division, Chicago gets that big win, obviously as we know, so things were looking like an uphill battle for them there.
They'll get division matchup, so if they could get right at the right times, then you have an opportunity.
You mentioned Jefferson as well.
That's another nice weapon toe add into feel in there and everything else that you can do.
It really comes back to Kirk Cousins.
For me, though, right? Gets an enormous contract, and unfortunately, he for me, I look at him the same way that looked at Jimmy Garoppolo.
He's a great quarterback toe have on the right team with right defense and the right offense, where expectations or not, go win us games with consistency, right? So in this kind of matchup, it's a nice balance game for them because Seattle is not going to shut you down defensively.
So you get to use all your weapons, you get the have a balance game plan against them, and then you still say that we're getting into a shootout here.
And if I'm picking, if I'm going quarterback first quarterback, I'm taking a really easy be line over to Russell Wilson side of things who, by the way, have their own dynamic weapon in year number two.
And in Metcalf, who's really come on.
And we spent a lot of time talking with Ray about him and just how dynamic he has looked.
So, unfortunately, in a year like this, early losses for Minnesota man up.
You may stand here in week 10 11 12 and go.
Yeah, you couldn't get out to a slow start.
You didn't see Chicago getting maybe a couple of lucky breaks early in the season and stealing a few wins, and unfortunately you're behind the April, so I like Minnesota.
But their defense has also come back down to Earth from where they were a couple of seasons ago, and unfortunately, that's been their identity for the past handful of years.
You let digs move on, and that's okay because you think you have the defense that will always keep you in games.
Hasn't been the case early here for them.
And that's why I think you're looking at the record that you are, because you don't expect to say we need to go win things offensively.
You wanna be a defense forward team and then capitalize on those opportunities and not ask too much. Occur cousins.
Yeah, the problem is, is there in a lot of shootouts because that secondary has been awful this year? Um, they their front seven has not been terrible, but that's secondary has just been given up way too much.
And I mean, when you give away your first your your two starting corners on, then the next season you're going with basically all rookies and second year guys, Um, you're expecting them to step up and do something that they need help, and in order to get corners and safeties help, you gotta play incredibly well in that front seven by getting pressure on the quarterback, and I just haven't seen it that well from the Minnesota Vikings.
And I mean, this is Russell Wilson.
I mean, you better get pressure on him or he's gonna chew you up, and it's a little bit confusing to me from Minnesota side of things because I think that they still feel like they're in that window, right.
There's a reason why you make the choice to pay cooks, because you think you are in the window of being able to have deep playoff level competition.
So Thio not look at your cornerback situation and feel like, Oh, well, you know, we're We're gonna take a year of development on that side of the ball.
That's that's a dangerous move.
And again, especially in that division.
Now, you could say who really cares about the Bears offensively, and that's usually the case.
But when you're going up against Aaron Rodgers, you know that your it's gonna come down to that season.
Siri's two games against them.
You have to have the ability to stay in that and again, that's another example of a like for like if I'm walking into that matchup and you're telling me, Listen, take defense off the table.
Who do you want under center? Whose offense do you believe in MAWR? I'm always going to believe in Aaron Rodgers before I believe in Kirk Cousins, and they have a great compliment in Jones there in the back field.
So they're a nice, balanced team.
They have, obviously Davante Adams as well, so that swings in green based favor.
Not a great, not a great defensive team, But you have math. Mats Stafford.
When I go through that division, I easily have two quarterbacks ahead of cousins.
And then who knows now? Midway through this season, I may say, and maybe I'd rather have Nick Foles because for all of his shortcomings, he can also get rolling like we saw on Thursday night and give you some really great performances.
So it's a little bit weird to me.
Keep you have the head coach in place.
You keep these weapons in place, and yet you ignore the defensive side of the ball.
The thing that you've hung your hat on so much and then by the way, Thio to think about it on the other side for for Seattle.
You went out and you got Adams off of the Jets.
Now he's been a little dinged up, but the value of saying we're so good and we're so in rhythm offensively, we can afford to get into shootouts.
And when those games more often than not, and by the back end of the season will have hopefully our defense rounds into form so that we can make a couple of key players when it comes playoff time so that you know that that's the young and the young of it.
Seattle already knew exactly what they were on both sides of the ball coming to this year.
I think Minnesota was caught off guard by the lack of quality that they're getting from from the defense aside, and they shouldn't be surprised by it.
They really should have seen this coming from a secondary perspective.
So NBC has the Seahawks favored by 6.
5 the over under at 54 a half.
If you were a betting man, where would you lay your money on this game? Oh, I go over.
I mean, it's easy, you know.
Look back and you see those Minnesota games, 43 30 for You know they're They're getting beaten up 28 11 But then 31 30 31 23.
Uh, you know, numbers are there for them, obviously as faras, just from a scoring standpoint and likewise for Seattle.
They've been in shoot out there, putting up points, so I easily go the over.
Now you know the argument about If you take the points and and the Vikings, you could probably make a case for it because it's it's going to be there to be close, I think.
And it's not like Seattle if I take a quick look back here, what their overall win losses have been in terms of margins.
I mean, listen, 38 you know, 38 25 36 30 34 31 tight games, Even that against the Dolphins.
We don't maybe fully know what we think about about Miami right now, but 31 23.
So I probably would take the over, and I probably comfortable with taking the points in Minnesota and thinking that will be close enough in this one, because again, Seattle is not gonna necessarily shut you down on the defensive side of the ball.
There could be a couple opportunities.
Cousins will give you a couple of chances to sway the tide here.
So it may be about one defensive big play that takes you from Ah, 4 to 7 point gap and balloons it up to an 11 to 14 point gap.
And this thing gets away from Minnesota late.
Well, how about the fact now, just those, uh, says Quinton Dunbar, dealing with an injury and Jamal Adams with an injury growing injury.
Does that change any thoughts about this game with you? Well, again, I mean, it means that the points can keep coming.
But I don't think that you came into the game thinking that you're going to stop something s so that's that's the If Jamal Adams is out there, obviously he's gonna have an impact.
But remember, he was there early in the season and they were still giving up points.
Not a single player is going to change the defense like that, And that's maybe to the point of why the Jets let him go, especially in a state of their franchise right now.
Right? One player.
Can you make a big play make a big interception. Okay, great.
But one singular player is not gonna change everything that you're doing, let alone if you're dealing with a couple so it opens, something's up.
It means that maybe you're talking about Minnesota having some chances deeper down the field without a quality safety over the top, necessarily.
And Adams at times, But Adams value again, can more be looked at in and around the box.
So from a rushing standpoint, you could be balanced if you want to in your Seattle.
So it doesn't move the needle for me.
And just in terms of the points, I think you're gonna happen here And what the ultimate outcome is gonna look like.
No, not at this stage.
Later in the season, probably as you start to see this defense get healthy and you figure out how those pieces work well together.
But as it stands right now, I just think that this is yeah, what? We're gonna see some points on the board here and the Onley way that I could see it going in the favor of Minnesota is if they live through cooks and they try to control tempo and control time of possession here.
The issue is cooks is a bit of a home run hitter in the running game.
He's not your power back, so you know when he makes good place, when he's really hitting on all cylinders, you could blow up and burst for a 45 yard touchdown run, which is great.
And also you get the ball back in Seattle's hand that much sooner, so that that's also the difficulty.
I think for Minnesota, they are a home run hitting offense.
They're not a steady as we go.
So that's what takes takes on the time of possession and being methodical and avoiding keeping Russia whistle off the field.
You lose that ability a little bit if you want to maintain your offensive rhythm for the style that you play in any final thoughts about this game, Listen, M v P talk right.
I mean, Russell Wilson has probably been more deserving of those conversations in years past, and now it looks like he's putting forward performances that say there's not gonna be much of an excuse to not give it to me.
I know we've talked about Aaron Rodgers that way to some of his early season matchups.
I think we want to see him get up against some more difficult defense is certainly, um no and the development of some of these guys, Matt Metcalfe has been a really a really revelation the start of this season.
We weren't sure he dropped in the draft last season.
Seems like Okay, does he? Does he understand route running is maybe that one of his issues is he has dynamic.
Is you want? Can he really make some of those big plays for you? He flashed it last year, but now, this year, it's just he's showing it with consistency.
And that tandem now creates a whole new dynamic for Russell Wilson.
A whole new dynamic for the Seattle offense.
And by the way, I know that locket maybe isn't the pure number one that you want on your team? Guess what Now? Now you've got one and one a, and now lock.
It becomes that much more dangerous because he gets the operating a lot of space there.
So I'm just gonna really enjoy the offensive gameplay from really both sides of the ball here because there's a lot of fun weapons, toe so watch and you know I'll be shocked.
I'll be shocked if this thing is anything less than playing in the in the upper twenties thirties like that.
That's the range that I think this game gets into.
And that makes for a fun Sunday night watch, by the way, right? Like like let's let's close off the scoring.
Let's close off the Sunday football with a nice high scoring back and forth kind of game, and hopefully it's that I I think that it'll least be close into the third quarter and again, look for a key defensive play.
Look for a key turnover and when I think he turnovers, even though Russell Wilson had one of the end zone last week, I'm far more concerned about cousins coughing one up than I am Russell Wilson.
And that's what's so great about him in M V.
Discussions always makes the smart right.
Play uses his legs with incredible value.
Doesn't do anything too risky, and I just think that there he's really playing within himself in that offense looks looks just exactly what you hope for coming to the season.
If you're Seattle, very threatening, very dangerous, potent in the NFC West.
I want people to remember that this isn't the full Seattle Seahawks offense, either.
In a couple more weeks, a certain Josh Gordon will be off suspension, and he is with the Seattle Seahawks.
So when he comes off that suspension, this this offensively, just that much more difficult to stop.
Yeah, even the threat of it, even just the threat of his presence is gonna open up other things.
So, yeah, that that's the beauty of that player, that you don't have to be a guy that makes big stat lines.
Just be big beyond the outside and force them to think about you and watch it open up everything else, not just for the passing game, but the running game as well.
Because you can't stack that box when you see all those weapons on the outside.
All right, so we're gonna go ahead and call this because we got less than 20 minutes for the game starts.
I want people to be ableto jump up here and watch the game.
I want to thank Texas guy.
Texas 12 Aaron, 12.
