What a rough ten-day stretch for the Redskins. They started out 6-3 with a 2.5 game lead in the division. Ten short days later, the Redskins went 0-2, lost their lead in the division, AND lost their starting quarterback for the year. Now, I don't believe that the offense will look too much different with Colt McCoy at the helm. While I do think Alex Smith was heating up and getting into a groove in this offense, he had not created an offensive output that will be missed in Washington. The problem in DC now is the turnovers. After being one of the top teams in the league in turnover differential through the first nine games under Alex Smith, Colt McCoy's first start included 3 interceptions, a fumble his team was lucky to recover, and two more passes that could've easily been intercepted. The other pieces of the Redskins' early success, the run defense and run offense, have sputtered since the team's mid-October surge. The Redskins need to fix two of these three parts of their winning structure if they are going to win this division and reach the playoffs.

It's been three years since the Indy Colts have sported more wins than losses on their overall record. The resurgence of Andrew Luck, along with an improved OLine and the emergence of rookie LBer sensation Darius Leonard, now have Colts' fans starting to see (and feel) what this team might possibly achieve, once all the pieces have been put in place.

Aside from the available talent to be gathered up at the 2019 NFL Draft, GM Chris Ballard has the NFL's largest available cap budget to work with during the off-season. For now, the Colts are starting to push for a possible playoff spot after beating Miami for their 5th win in a row.

There are still spots in the Indy roster that need addressed (on both sides of the ball), but with their improvement in the W-L column, the Colts also find themselves picking a little further back in each round. Look for defense to remain the top priority, with an outside chance that an elite wideout gets tabbed.

After Monday Night's loss to the Texans, the Titans have lost back-to-back games, falling below .500 on the season; three games out of the division lead. A lot of this current season can be blamed on the offense, currently ranked 30th in the NFL in total yards per game, only above the Bills, who were so bad earlier this year that Vontae Davis retired at halftime, and the Cardinals, who are tied for the worst record in the league.They're also 29th in points per game, ahead of the same two teams, as well as the also-tied for last Oakland Raiders. We're not sure if it's the scheme or the talent, but Matt LaFleur definitely has not been the savior that many were hoping for . The lone bright spots on offense have been Corey Davis, who has started to show flashes of the talent that made him the Fifth overall pick. This season, he's caught 45 passes for 606 yards and two touchdowns, while converting 32 of his receptions (71%) into first downs. Second-year Tight End Jonnu Smith has also picked up his game in recent weeks, including a six-reception performance last week against Indianapolis.

The running game is all but non-existent this season, currently sitting tied for second-to-last in the NFL at 3.9 yards per carry, which is putting a lot of pressure on Marcus Mariota to take over games, which has created a one-dimensional offense. Unfortunately, with no truly dominant playmakers (yet) in the passing game, this leads to an inconsistency and trouble moving the ball.

Quarterback Joe Flacco will be evaluated by a hip specialist early this week to determine whether he's cleared to resume practice. Now Joe is a lot younger than I am, but having just gone through hip-replacement surgery myself, I know I wouldn't be ready LOL! Head Coach John Harbaugh declined to announce the Ravens' starter moving forward . . . "I'm not going to get into that for a number of reasons," Harbaugh said. "Whether that decision has been made or not is not important for anyone to know but us. If I decided to do it one way or the other, I don't want our opponents to know." Competitive advantage is one thing, but "whether that decision has been made or not" seems to indicate the future is now.

While victories over Cincinnati and Oakland would have no one planning a Super Bowl parade in Baltimore, there are someinteresting statistics to consider from Sunday's game. The Ravens' offense generated 416 yards (6.0 per play), the 23 first downs were broken down as 9 by passing, 13 by rushing, and 1 by penalty, and 3rd-down efficiency was an impressive 8 of 13 (61.5%). If the decision is to move forward with Lamar Jackson, that will impact Baltimore's decisions on Draft Day regarding offensive skill positions.

Yet another disappointing loss for Panthers fans. After dropping their last three games, fans should begin to worry, and justifiably so. Partly due to the fact that one of those losses was against a struggling Detroit Lions team. With their playoff hopes dwindling and a tough stretch of upcoming games, the Panthers must tighten up on the defensive side of the ball if they have any hopes of playing into deep December and the beginning of next year. In the past three games, the defense has given up 102 total points, and let me remind you all that before this occurred, this was a top 5 defensive unit before the Pittsburgh game. This defense was previously thought of as an elite unit, but they have struggled to get to the quarterback, contain teams' number-1 and number-2 receivers, and bottle up opposing running backs. In other words, their defense is struggling in all facets of the game. This has cost them dearly, and it does not appear to get any easier for them down the stretch besides the next two road games against the Buccaneers and the Browns. However, with the way their defense has been playing, one cannot even consider these to be easy games. These final five games are going to be crucial for the Panthers as they are now behind the Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card race, with the Eagles and Packers behind them, and I would not bet against Aaron Rodgers or Carson Wentz to continue losing games.

The Seahawks won a close game against the solid Panthers this past weekend to get over the .500 mark for the season at 6-5. Seattle has three games left against the 49ers (twice) and Cardinals. They need to win all three of those games, as the other two are against the Vikings and Chiefs. Despite their mediocre record, the Seahawks have proven they can hang with anyone when they play well, and if they manage to slip into the playoffs, I doubt anyone will be happy to face them.

Before the last draft, I stated that the Seahawks needed to reclaim their "Seahawk-iness". They had turned into a team that relied on the pass, and when you go against your nature, bad things tend to happen. This year the team is heading back in the right direction, running the ball (1st in NFL with 147 YPG), and playing a style better suited to the team's DNA. The team still has holes: the O-Line needs early-round attention to protect Wilson (34 sacks allowed in 11 games), and their secondary certainly needs Day 1 or Day 2 picks over the next few drafts. The team also needs help at WR, but perhaps it should be a veteran free agent who can come in and help right away. Despite respectable (average) sacks and run defense, the Seahawks' D-Line could use a young playmaker. This need coincides with the strength of the Draft, and whenever that happens, it's a good bet that's where your RD1 pick will be spent.

With a win over the Packers in Week 12, the Vikings increased their playoff chances by about 20% according to Football Outsiders. That said, the season will be decided largely by how the team fares on the road vs. the Patriots and Seahawks in Weeks 13 and 14. It's not easy being the division champs, as you typically end up with the hardest schedule in your division the following year, but if they want to sustain success, the Vikings will have to get used to it.

A big blow in the Packers' game was the loss of Xavier Rhodes. Originally expected to be a season-ending injury, Mike Zimmer hilariously confirmed that the TV doctors were wrong and that the hamstring injury Rhodes sustain is "very, very mild." The depth at corner will be tested, though, until Rhodes returns, as UDFA Holton Hill will likely start opposite of Trae Waynes. Credit to the Vikings' front office that there's enough depth to possibly survive this injury, even after losing 2018 1st-Round cornerback Mike Hughes earlier this year. On a positive note, the defense now ranks top 5 in yards/play and, if you take out the Rams and Bills games, the defense has only allowed 12 touchdowns in the remaining 9 games played this year. There's hope in Viking-land, but it could be quickly fleeting if things don't go well over the next two weeks.

And the hot streak continues for this surging Houston Texans football team. After giving up 10 points in the first 6 minutes of the game, the Texans answered in an emphatic way. They scored 24 points by halftime and tacked on ten more by the end of the game, doubling the Titans final score. The Texans dominated in just about every facet of the game - Deshaun Watson had a great day passing and running the ball, Lamar Miller had a career day with 162 rushing yards on just 12 carries, Demaryius Thomas found the end zone twice after not having a catch last week against Washington, and the defense combined for 6 sacks and 1 takeaway. Although there were so many positive takeaways from this game, there were a couple of flaws that need to be polished up before they take on their toughest challenge of the season in Week 14 against a division rival, the Indianapolis Colts. They allowed for Marcus Mariota to carve up their defense in an alarming fashion. Mariota threw more touchdown passes than he did incompletions, racking up 303-yards in the process of completing 22 of 23 passes. Revealing that the Texans weakness is their corner depth, which it has been for much of the season as they have been dealing with numerous injuries. However, they have gotten back Jonathan Joseph and Aaron Colvin, which will go a long way in aiding this defense as the playoffs approach. As long as the secondary and the offensive line can continue to stay healthy, which they have been struggling to do for much of the season, they will continue to win games and play the game at an exceptionally-high level.

The Steelers are heading into the toughest part of their schedule and will need to develop consistent production and limit their self-inflicted wounds. These aren't the type of issues addressed in the draft, however. It's a complete a team as any of the contenders. The draft will be used to bolster depth and address opening roster spots.

Some of the depth was on display against the Broncos in Week 12. Chukwuma Okorafor, the team's fourth tackle, looked solid in his first start against none other than Von Miller. At OLB, Chickillo is the only reserve and he's consistently underwhelmed on defense. The team needs to continue to invest in pass rush to look beyond Dupree at OLB. At CB, they need to add quality edge players to not only upgrade Sensabaugh but take over for Haden in the coming years. At WR, James Washington still is struggling in his rookie season but the team should address skill players in later rounds, focusing on the the starting lineup earlier.

One day you're cruising along on a six-game win streak with a nice, balanced roster, the next you're coughing up a winnable game to the Broncos and losing your leading tackler to injury. The NFL comes at you fast.

Denzel Perryman's season-ending LCL injury sent a ripple through the Chargers' depth chart and created an immediate need for next offseason. Perryman is entering Free Agency after his second trip to the IR in three seasons. There are some nice options for upgrading the spot, notably SEC stalwarts Devin White and Mack Wilson. White is unlikely to slide all the way to the Chargers, but after Derwin James parachuted in last year, who knows?

The good news for Bolts fans is that the team snapped back and thumped the Cardinals in Week 11. Pricetag on that win is the MCL sprain suffered by Melvin Gordon. It's always something. Along with ILB, figure the Chargers to keep a close eye on Edge, Tight End and QB of the future as the draft plays out.

After an embarrassing performance before the bye week, New England rebounded with a solid performance in a divisional road game. The defense, which plays much worse on the road, allowed only 13 points to the Jets. More encouraging is the fact the Patriots held the Jets to only 338 yards of total offense. The defense applied a fair amount of pressure, forcing some incompletions, and recorded two sacks of Josh McCown.

The other important development was the return of Rob Gronkowski for New England. Gronk missed the previous two games, and has missed a total of three games this season. He caught three of his seven targets for 56 yards, including a 34-yard touchdown. The Patriots' offense just looks and feels different with him on the field.

Not much changes for New England from a draft perspective, as the team can still use reinforcements at all three levels of the defense. A pass rusher would be a welcomed addition, whether that is in the form of interior pressure or edge pressure. The team seemingly has had issues at coverage linebacker for what feels like the last decade.

Offensively, New England needs an eventual successor for Brady while a youth movement in receiving weapons would be useful. Only Julian Edelman is under contract for 2019 among the team's top five receivers, and at this point it is fair to wonder how many more years Gronk is going to play.

(Updated 12/3) I have a 10-yr-old daughter. Like most young kids in KC, she's an avid Chiefs fan. And, like most children her age, she began to compile her Christmas list the minute Halloween ended. At the top of this year's Christmas list: Kareem Hunt jersey. Keep in mind, this was a month ago. I pulled her aside and asked her to reconsider. "Why?" She asked. Having followed the athlete, I explained he was involved in an event that sounded "pretty bad." I said it's no longer in the headlines, and it was quietly resolved. Yet, something about the way it was resolved did not even seem right. "But, he's good!" she responded back. The conversation continued.

Fast forward to today. Unfortunately, Dad's intuition came true. I've now had many conversations. Conversations with my children. Conversations with soccer moms. Dads. Neighbors. Friends. Conversations about the comparison to Tyreek Hill. Ray Rice. Jovan Belcher. Conversations about good athletes and "not so good" people. Conversations about coverups. Media coverage. Hotel security. Police investigations. Legal responsibility. Employee responsibility. Employer responsibility. Conflict management. Anger management. Authenticity. Lying. Second chances. And, of course, respect for women.

In all these conversations, I've not heard one person say that the Chiefs overreacted. There is concern for the player. Concern for the season. Concern about "how do explain this to my kid?" And, a whole bunch of confusion. As for my daughter, Santa's bringing her a Travis Kelce jersey (Yeah, I know... no saint either). Also, she has learned at an early age something that did not become apparent to me until I was well into my 20s: a great athlete does not always equal a good person.

The Rams play almost exclusively with one RB, one TE, and 3 WRs. The season loss of Cooper Kupp and the in-game injury to Todd Gurley forced the Ram offense to break out of their comfort zone against KC. Yes sir; we actually saw the presence of two TEs on the field in the win, proof that the team does in fact (despite earlier reports) have strength at the TE position. We just like to keep them in storage. Both Gerald Everett and Tyler Higbee are close to a 70% catch rate for the season. And, Kupp's backup, Josh Reynolds, performed well, too. Reynolds and Everett combined for nine catches, 129 yards, and three touchdowns against the Chiefs.

CB Aquib Talib is scheduled to return to the lineup Sunday against the Lions. Good timing! The Rams' defense currently ranks second in the NFL in Explosive Plays (defined as 15-yard rushes, 20-yard passes) behind only the Chiefs. Thus, defense remains the priority for the 2019 Draft. Because so many draft picks were mortgaged for this season, Rams are hoping to gain back RD3 compensatory picks for the losses of Trumaine Johnson and Sammy Watkins. The team will need it. Michael Brockers who will seek a big paycheck via Free Agency; also, expect departures via retirement: Talib, OL Andrew Whitworth, and possibly Ndamukong Suh.
