Good morning, BBN, and welcome to another NFL Sunday. Mike Edwards and Danny Trevathan got us started on Thursday night in Chicago where the Bears, somehow, beat the Buccaneers 20-19, improving their record to 4-1 on the year. Trevathan hauled in eight tackles in the victory while Edwards did not play. Let’s look at the rest of the league.
There won’t be too many ‘Cats suiting up this week, with Za’Darius Smith (GB) and Logan Stenberg (DET) both on bye weeks, although five players will be featured in two games this afternoon. There’s really not a lot to preview in these matchups either, considering Josh Allen won’t play (knee injury), and Lynn Bowden may not get the volume we’re hoping for against a strong San Fransisco defense.
However, it will be interesting to see what Randall Cobb and Lonnie Johnson do in the absence of the recently fired Bill O’Brien, while Bud Dupree should have a field day against a depleted Eagles offense.
Not a great slate today, but let’s just be thankful we have it. This morning, there have already been some rescheduling and postponement of games so this is all just one big cluster. As long as there are 22 healthy guys on the field, tossing around a leather ball, I’m happy.
