SK JF Comments 1 SK: Surprisingly the underdog, went into Philly and stomped the Eagles.
JF: Stayed undefeated with impressive win against the Eagles. 2 SK: Much needed bye for AFC's best.

3 SK: Despite the W, failed to put Cowboys away when they should have.
JF: Enjoyed the BYE and now ready to build off of recent success. 4 SK: Offense continues to be inconsistent, but a win is a win.
JF: Defense continues to dominate in many ways. 6-1 is a great start to the season.
5 SK: 7 rushing yards allowed against Cardinals! Oh and Alex Smith rebounded nicely.
JF: Got past Cardinals with an impressive performance by the defense and Alex Smith
6 SK: Should NOT have been that close against the lowly Jaguars.
JF: Not dominant, but got the job done.
7 SK: Will Gronk bring the "Nutcracker" dance back to the States?
JF: Brady and Co. would probably welcome more trips to London after Sunday's win.
8 SK: Peyton Manning is showing no signs of slowing down.
JF: The Ravens are 4-0 following the BYE week under John Harbaugh.
9 SK: Only team that's been able to stop RG3.
JF: Manning, Decker and Thomas were on fire Monday night!
10 SK: Hopefully they added about 100 more runs for Ray Rice in their playbook during the bye.
JF: Took care of business against RG3 and the Redskins.
11 SK: Went into MetLife and put a whooping on the Jets.
JF: Left another win on the table.
12 SK: Looks like Thursday's loss may just be the beginning of the Vikings downfall.
JF: Still in the race, but lost another close one.
13 SK: How's Ballard's head feeling after hitting the pylon?
JF: Very impressive victory on the road against the Jets.
14 SK: The defense is really starting to struggle in Seattle.
JF: The defense struggled for the second straight game.
15 SK: Offense isn't the issue in Washington, but the defense is another story...
JF: Peterson is back, but the defense has been BAD as of late.
16 SK: If only Bryant's fingers were a little smaller...
JF: Rebounded after Monday's loss, Stafford pulled it out in the 4th quarter...again.
17 SK: Things don't get any easier with Green Bay and Atlanta on tap.
JF: A win over the Chargers now has the Colts sitting 1 game above .500.
18 SK: Could Dougie "Fresh" Martin challenge RG3 for Rookie of the Year?
JF: Offense continued to burden Arizona in loss to 49ers.
19 SK: Clock's ticking on Andy Reid, but Nick Foles is NOT the answer.
JF: Couldn't get back on track against the Browns.
20 SK: Desperately need to beat Broncos or they could fall out of AFC North race.

21 SK: It's about time they fed DMC the rock.
JF: Impressive win in Minnesota after heartbreaking loss to Saints 2 weeks ago.
22 SK: Is Titus Young Sr. Stafford's new go-to-guy?
JF: Will they take the next step this week?
23 SK: Allowing 75 points in the last two games isn't going to get it done in St. Louis.
JF: Proved me wrong, even though it was against the Chiefs.
24 SK: Their secondary is just absolutely brutal.

25 SK: I'll say it again: Was Norv Turner fired yet?

JF: Maybe not as close as I originally thought.
27 SK: Will Tebow be traded before Thursday's deadline?
JF: Hasselbeck couldn't work his magic in OT against Indianapolis.
28
SK: Don't expect the defense to improve with rough matchup against Texans on Sunday.
JF: A win was in their grasp against the Bears, but let it slip away.
29 SK: Their still ways away, but Cleveland will be a force in the coming years.
JF: What Bills team will we see coming off the BYE?
30 SK: Had a chance to put the Bears away, but choked.
JF: The defense was outstanding in their victory against the Chargers.
31 SK: Great effort in Green Bay, but couldn't get it done.
