The NFL Week 4 slate has a handful of good games on tap, including the undefeated Miami Dolphins taking on the 1-2 Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football. This slate also includes the league’s first London game in 2022 between the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints. Heading into this week, there is only two undefeated teams and one 0-3 team. We’re starting to get a little bit of an idea of what these teams’ identities are but there’s still a lot of football left to find out.
NFL Week 4 Games to Watch
Chiefs vs Buccaneers
The last game on NFL Sunday will feature the 2020-21 Super Bowl matchup between the Chefes de Kansas City and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This is expected to be a great game, despite what happened to both teams last week.
The Chiefs laid an egg against the 0-2 Colts and lost 20-17 on a late touchdown pass by Matt Ryan. This more had to do with the Chief’s misshapes all game than the Colts actually putting together a good performance. Patrick Mahomes didn’t have a Patrick Mahomes game as he only completed 20 of his 35 passes and threw for 262 yards with only a touchdown and an interception. The run game was nowhere to be seen. Their leading rusher was Mahomes at only 26 yards. Clyde Edwards-Helaire did score a touchdown from a yard out but totaled zero yards on seven attempts.
The Chiefs’ defense did record five sacks and limited the Colts to 20 points but the offense was absent. Speaking of absent offense, the Buccaneers had a pretty lousy day as well. They only scored 12 points and their first touchdown came on their last drive of the game, where they failed to make the 2-point conversion after a false start. A portion of Tom Brady‘s 271 passing yards came on that last drive as well. It didn’t help that most of the offense was either suspended or injured but even Brady would tell you he didn’t have a good day.
It looked like the Packers were going to run away with this game but the defense was phenomenal in the second half. The Chiefs will have to figure things out on offense if they plan to get past this vaunting defense. Tampa Bay on the other hand will at least be getting Mike Evans for this game, which will help significantly. Kansas City’s defense will also have to stay strong to help out the offense.
Bills vs Ravens
Both teams come into NFL Week 4 2-1. The Super Bowl favorite Buffalo Bills lost a close matchup to the Dolphins, 21-19. They went into that matchup with a beat-up defense, missing multiple starters but they held their own. The surprising part is the offense not holding up their end of the bargain. Josh Allen passed for an unreal 400 yards and 2 touchdowns but only scored 19 points. The run game didn’t help the cause as Allen was their leading rusher with 47 on the ground but Devin Singletary did have 78 yards and a touchdown on nine targets through the air. If the offense was just a little better, they’d still be undefeated.
The Baltimore Ravens offense on the other hand went off and scored 37 points last week in New England. Lamar Jackson continues to show why he needs to get paid as he threw for 218 yards and four touchdowns but also added 107 yards and a touchdown on the ground. He continues to have a great connection with tight end Mark Andrews, que acompanhou um jogo de 100 jardas na semana 2 com um desempenho de 89 jardas e dois touchdown na semana passada.Mesmo que a defesa dos Bills seja mais saudável do que na semana passada, será difícil parar Jackson, Andrews, e uma ofensa que marcou 37 ou mais em semanas consecutivas.
Mesmo com um desempenho de três intercepções e três saco na semana passada, essa defesa dos Ravens precisará voltar ao que pensávamos que eles estariam no início do ano se planejam interromper essa ofensa letais do Bills como os Dolphins.
Rams vs 49ers
Este jogo de futebol de segunda -feira à noite na semana da NFL apresenta dois rivais da divisão que no final estarão lutando pelo NFC West.O Los Angeles Rams estão saindo de outro jogo de divisão contra o Cardinals, onde eles marcaram apenas 20 pontos, mas fizeram o suficiente para vencer o jogo por causa de sua defesa ter um desempenho forte.As estatísticas daquele lado da bola podem não estar lá, pois só tinham dois sacos, sem interceptações, e desistiram de mais de 300 jardas, mas não deixaram o Arizona entrar na zona final uma vez.Toda a ofensa dos Rams veio do chão como Cam Akers e sim, Cooper Kupp, cada um correu para um touchdown.
Eles terão que fazer mais por ofensa esta semana contra um difícil San Francisco 49ers Defesa, que em uma perda desistiu de apenas 11 aos Broncos.Sim, você leu certo, os 49ers perderam, mas apenas desistiram de 11. Isso ocorre porque o ataque deles só conseguiu marcar 10 pontos.
Em Jimmy GoroppoloÉ o primeiro começo desde Trey Lance foi abaixo, Ele jogou apenas 211 jardas e um touchdown com uma interceptação. Brandon Aiyuk pegou um touchdown, mas além Deebo Samuel (73 jardas), ninguém tinha mais de 40 jardas recebendo.A ofensa não estava em lugar algum e eles precisam fazer um ajuste naquele lado da bola na semana 4 da NFL, assim como os Rams.
