Three weeks done and dusted so far in the NFL, and what have we learned?
Tom Brady is definitely not finished, but the Jets are. The Chiefs might struggle this year, and could be fall behind the Las Vegas Raiders.
The world needs more Frank Gore.
Wade McElwain and Ryan Cull chat all of this malarky and more, as they make their picks in this Week 4 Preview.
If you want to join the guys watching the NFL every Sunday, why not join us at the Sports Bar & Grill Old Street for all the NFL fun. It’s open until 12:30am, and you can watch ALL of the NFL games there.
We are throwing parties for the London games at the Sports Bar & Grill Clapham and Old Street, as well as the Princess Alexandra in Crouch End.
All of these places are centrally located, open late, and dedicated to NFL action-so if you are looking for a place to book in for before or after the game, please just let us know.
Also be aware of the petrol crisis in the UK at the moment, which means cars are slowly moving throughout north London, and traffic jams pop up wherever a gas station is.
If you’re planning on driving to the games, and you haven’t been around the stadium lately, we would highly recommend avoiding it.
Among some of the games the guys talk about in this episode of the podcast includes:
-2 Browns (2-1) vs Vikings (1-2) +51.5
Everyone keeps talking about how the Vikes should be 3-0 if they didn’t yada yada yada, but they are 1-2 so there you go.
The Browns are 2-1 and are starting to show more promise as they gain momentum each week. OBJ is back, and the running game is a duel threat.
Ryan likes the Vikings to continue their winning ways with an easy victory over Baker and the Boys. He likes the Minnesota running game to gash yards over Cleveland, as well as Cousins to spread the ball around.
Wade favours the Brownies here given how tough their D has been playing, not to mention the pocket protection that even a nerd would be jelly of. OBJ will be a big difference in this one.
Ryan- Vikings 28 Browns 23
Wade- Browns 31 Vikings 28
Lions (0-3) vs -3 Bears (1-2) +42.5
Detroit might be one of the worst teams in the league, but that hasn’t stopped them from being competitive every week. Goff refuses to go out as a joke, while TJ Hockenson continues to stuff balls every Sunday.
Chicago took a nut punch from the Browns last week, as it became evident Matt Nagy hadn’t bothered to prepare a Sunday plan. Fields got mown, and the total offence was offensive.
Ryan thinks Goff is better than Fields, and will be the top man on the day. If Detroit were to win a game this season, he thinks that this is the one.
Wade has faith in his Bears to turn it around after a bitter loss last Sunday. Being at home and with the fan momentum behind them, he thinks its time to right the ship. He likes the Bears to cover in this one, and show some stones in the trenches.
Ryan- Lions 23 Bears 17
Wade- Bears 26 Lions 20
Ryan has some other teams that he likes for week 4, including the Dolphins to toss over the Colts, Bills stuffing the Texans, Atlanta upsetting the Washington FT, and the Jets covering against the Titans.
Wade fancies the Giants to cover against the Saints, Panthers to cover versus the Cowboys, and the Broncos with a steady victory over the nevermore Ravens.
Make sure you listen to the whole dang podcast to hear it all.
Join us every Sunday at the Sports Bar and Grill Old Street or Clapham to watch all the games!
See you Sunday!
