NFL Week 8 Recap – 49ers Pat the Panthers Belly and Monday Night Football Preview

69-58-5 on the NFL last season (2018/19) up 26.36 units

28-37 on the NFL this season down 11.86 units

Dolphins/Steelers over 43 for 2 units. FitzMagic will score some touchdowns and have some turnovers. Short Fields help overs. Minkah Fitzpatrick plays against the team that traded him this season. Steelers have scored at least 20 points in every game except Week 1 against the Patriots. Bills dropped 31 on the Dolphins last week. If Pittsburgh wins this game, they will be only 2 games back in the division. They should score some points to help this over and win.

Here’s a useless stat.. NFL teams that names start with B went 0-6 this weekend. My Panthers got ruined by the Shanahan offense. I normally wait till Wednesday to write these, but I don’t care enough about the Steelers/Dolphins game tonight to wait for them to play.

Vikings beat Redskins 19-9

  • Case Keenum: 12/16, 130 yards
  • Dwayne Haskins: 3/5, 33 yards, 1 INT
  • Adrian Peterson: 14 carries, 76 yards + 2 targets, 2 receptions, 27 yards
  • Wendell Smallwood: 2 carries, 9 yards + 2 targets, 1 reception, 11 yards
  • Terry McLaurin: 6 targets, 4 receptions, 39 yards
  • Jeremy Sprinkle: 2 targets, 2 receptions, 12 yards
  • Paul Richardson Jr.: 4 targets, 3 receptions, 34 yards

 

  • Kirk Cousins: 23/26, 285 yards + 2 carries, 2 yards
  • Dalvin Cook: 23 carries, 98 yards, 1 TD + 6 targets, 5 receptions, 73 yards
  • Alexander Mattison: 13 carries, 61 yards + 2 targets, 2 receptions, 3 yards
  • Stefon Diggs: 7 targets, 7 receptions, 143 yards
  • Kyle Rudolph: 3 targets, 3 receptions, 17 yards
  • Irv Smith Jr.: 3 targets, 3 receptions, 21 yards
  • Bisi Johnson: 2 targets, 2 receptions, 27 yards

Adrian Peterson passed Tomlinson (13,684) for the 6th-most rush yards; however, the Redskins are 1-7. Vikings are 4-0 at home and a game back of the 7-1 Packers for the division. Dalvin Cook and Diggs are talented. Cousins is now 28-15-1 against teams below .500

Titans beat Buccaneers 27-23

  • Jameis Winston: 21/43, 301 yards, 2 TD, 3 sacks + 8 carries, 53 yards, 5 Turnovers
  • Ronald Jones II: 11 carries, 35 yards + 4 targets, 1 reception, 17 yards
  • Peyton Barber: 10 carries, 20 yards + 3 targets, 1 reception, 8 yards
  • Mike Evans: 12 targets, 11 receptions, 198 yards, 2 TD
  • Chris Godwin: 8 targets, 4 receptions, 43 yards
  • Cameron Brate: 6 targets, 3 receptions, 32 yards

 

  • Ryan Tannehill: 21/33, 193 yards, 3 TD, 3 sacks + 4 carries, -3 yards, 1 fumble
  • Derrick Henry: 16 carries, 75 yards + 1 target, 1 carry, 8 yards
  • Jonnu Smith: 7 targets, 6 receptions, 78 yards, 1 TD
  • Adam Humphries: 6 targets, 3 receptions, 24 yards
  • Tajae Sharpe: 3 targets, 3 receptions, 18 yards, 1 TD
  • A.J. Brown: 3 targets, 2 receptions, 11 yards, 1 TD
  • Corey Davis: 6 targets, 2 receptions, 9 yards

Jameis is going to Jameis. Winston has 7 interceptions in his last 2 games. Mike Evans went off and now has the most catches in Buccaneers history. Tannehill has done well with his starts. The Buccaneers are now 0-4 against backup Qbs this season. Tennessee travels to Carolina this week.

Chargers beat Da Bears 17-16

  • Philip Rivers: 19/29, 201 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT, 1 sack
  • Melvin Gordon: 8 carries, 31 yards, 1 TD + 3 targets, 2 receptions, 3 yards
  • Austin Ekeler: 3 carries, 3 yards + 3 targets, 2 receptions, 19 yards, 1 TD
  • Keenan Allen: 10 targets, 7 receptions, 53 yards
  • Mike Williams: 6 targets, 3 receptions, 69 yards
  • Hunter Henry: 6 targets, 4 receptions, 47 yards

 

  • Mitch Trubisky: 23/35, 253 yards, 1 INT, 4 sacks + 4 carries, 10 yards
  • David Montgomery: 27 carries, 135 yards, 1 TD + 5 targets, 4 receptions, 12 yards
  • Tarik Cohen: 4 carries, 9 yards + 3 targets, 3 receptions, 37 yards
  • Allen Robinson: 7 targets, 5 receptions, 62 yards
  • Anthony Miller: 3 targets, 3 receptions, 67 yards
  • Taylor Gabriel: 6 targets, 4 receptions, 53 yards
  • Trey Burton: 4 targets, 1 reception, 16 yards

Bears missed the game winning field goal. Matt Nagy decided to take a knee instead of run the ball for more yards to get a closer field goal. Bears are 7-12 when Trubisky throws the ball more than 30 times. Allen Robinson is a stud. Chargers did just enough to win. Neither of these teams looks good this season.

Rams Beat Bengals 24-10

  • Andy Dalton: 35/52, 329 yards, 1 TD
  • Joe Mixon: 17 carries, 66 yards + 4 targets, 4 receptions, 11 yards, 1 TD
  • Giovani Bernard: 3 carries, 31 yards + 2 targets, 2 receptions, 14 yards
  • Tyler Boyd: 9 targets, 6 receptions, 65 yards
  • Auden Tate: 13 targets, 5 receptions, 65 yards
  • Tyler Eifert: 9 targets, 6 receptions, 74 yards
  • Alex Erikson: 7 targets, 6 receptions, 97 yards

 

  • Jared Goff: 17/31, 372 yards, 2 TD’s
  • Todd Gurley: 10 carries, 44 yards, 1 TD + 1 target
  • Darrell Henderson: 11 carries, 49 yards + 2 targets, 2 receptions, 20 yards
  • Robert Woods: 2 targets, 2 receptions, 36 yards + 4 carries, 6 yards
  • Cooper Kupp: 10 targets, 7 receptions, 220 yards, 1 TD
  • Gerald Everett: 3 targets, 2 receptions, 15 yards
  • Josh Reynolds: 8 targets, 3 receptions, 73 yards, 1 TD + 1 carry, -1 yards

Bengals couldn’t stop Kupp over the middle of the field. I have said it 18 times, but the Bengals are rarely in position to make a tackle and they miss a lot of tackles. Not a good combo. Rams have beat the Falcons and Bengals recently, so 5-3 isn’t as good as it looks for them. Bengals have allowed over 400 yards in most (5) of their games this season.

Patriots Beat Browns 27-13

  • Tom Brady: 20/36, 259 yards, 2 TDs
  • Sony Michel: 21 carries, 74 yards
  • James White: 2 carries, 4 yards + 5 targets, 4 receptions, 75 yards
  • Rex Burkhead: 3 carries, 4 yards + 1 target, 1 reception, 9 yards
  • Julian Edelman: 11 targets, 8 receptions, 78 yards, 2 TD’s
  • Phillip Dorsett: 6 targets, 3 receptions, 43 yards
  • Mohamed Sanu: 5 targets, 2 receptions, 23 yards
  • Ben Watson: 1 target, 1 reception, 26 yards

 

  • Baker Mayfield: 20/31, 194 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT + 1 carry, 18 yards
  • Nick Chubb: 20 carries, 131 yards, 2 fumbles + 1 target, 1 reception, 7 yards
  • Dontrell Hilliard: 1 carry, 10 yards + 4 targets, 4 receptions, 24 yards
  • Odell Beckham, Jr.: 7 targets, 5 receptions, 52 yards
  • Jarvis Landry: 10 targets, 5 receptions, 65 yards
  • Demetrius Harris: 3 targets, 2 receptions, 33 yards, 1 TD

Patriots’ defense dominates again. James White has scored between 9 and 11 fantasy points in every game this season. Thirst Trap Edelman went off with 2 TDs. Belichick gets his 300th win. Chubb lost two fumbles. Former Brown, Jamie Collins now has a career high 6 sacks. Baker Mayfield has more interceptions this season (12) than Tom Brady had last season.

Lions Beat Giants 31-26

  • Daniel Jones: 28/41, 322 yards, 4 TDs, 3 sacks, 1 fumble lost + 4 carries, 13 yards
  • Saquon Barkley: 19 carries, 64 yards + 10 targets, 8 receptions, 79 yards, 1 TD
  • Golden Tate: 10 targets, 8 receptions, 85 yards
  • Evan Engram: 7 targets, 4 receptions, 40 yards, 1 TD
  • Darius Slayton: 5 targets, 2 receptions, 50 yards, 2 TDs
  • Cody Latimer: 3 targets, 2 receptions, 28 yards
  • Bennie Fowler: 2 targets, 2 receptions, 21 yards

 

  • Matthew Stafford: 25/32, 342 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT, 4 sacks + 2 carries, -3 yards
  • Ty Johnson: 7 carries, 25 yards + 4 targets, 1 reception, 13 yards
  • J.D. McKissic: 1 carry, -1 yard + 3 targets, 3 receptions, 2 yards
  • Tra Carson: 12 carries, 34 yards
  • Paul Perkins: 3 carries, 4 yards
  • Kenny Golladay: 8 targets, 6 receptions, 123 yards, 2 TDs, 1 fumble
  • Marvin Jones: 5 targets, 4 receptions, 22 yards
  • T.J. Hockenson: 1 target, 1 reception, 21 yards
  • Danny Amendola: 8 targets, 8 receptions, 95 yards
  • Marvin Hall: 1 target, 1 reception, 49 yards, 1 TD

Saquon Barkley beasted a human-being, but the Giants were in too big of a hole to climb out. Why the Giants were not in the no-huddle down 12 with 9 minutes left is beyond me. Lions might be good, but their division is tough. Lions already have more 28+ points games than they had last season. Jones had 4 TDs today, but he has 12 turnovers since week 3.

Eagles Beat Bills 31-13

  • Carson Wentz: 17/24, 172 yards, 1 TD + 8 carries, 35 yards
  • Miles Sanders: 3 carries, 74 yards, 1 TD + 3 targets, 3 catches, 44 yards
  • Jordan Howard: 23 carries, 96 yards, 1 TD + 2 targets, 1 catch, 15 yards
  • Boston Scott: 5 carries, 6 yards, 1 TD
  • Zach Ertz: 4 targets, 2 catches, 20 yards
  • Alshon Jeffery: 6 targets, 4 catches, 64 yards
  • Dallas Goedert: 5 targets, 3 catches, 22 yards, 1 TD
  • Nelson Agholor: 4 targets, 4 catches, 7 yards + 2 carries, 7 yards

 

  • Josh Allen: 16/33, 169 yards, 2 TDs + 8 carries, 45 yards + 1 Fumble
  • Frank Gore: 9 carries, 34 yards
  • Devin Singletary: 3 carries, 19 yards + 6 targets, 4 receptions, 29 yards, 1 TD
  • John Brown: 8 targets, 5 receptions, 54 yards
  • Cole Beasley: 6 targets, 3 receptions, 41 yards, 1 TD
  • Tyler Kroft: 4 targets, 2 receptions, 32 yards
  • Lee Smith: 1 target, 1 reception, 6 yards
  • Duke Williams: 2 targets, 1 reception, 6 yards
  • Patrick DiMarco: 1 target
  • Robert Foster: 1 target
  • Dawson Knox: 1 target

Eagles have won 22 games in a row when scoring more than 25 points. Eagles had to win this game and they did. Miles Sanders had a pretty 65 yard TD run. John Brown has had 50 yards in every game this season. Josh Allen is a consistent fantasy QB. Lot of wind in Buffalo. Bills can rebound against the Redskins and the Eagles have the Bears next.

Saints Are Holier than the Cardinals 31-9

  • Drew Brees: 34/43, 373 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT
  • Taysom Hill: 3 targets, 3 receptions, 63 yards, 1 TD
  • Latavius Murray: 21 carries, 102 yards, + 12 targets, 9 receptions, 55 yards, 2 TDs
  • Dwayne Washington: 3 carries, 38 yards
  • Michael Thomas: 11 targets, 11 receptions, 112 yards, 1 TD
  • Ted Ginn, Jr: 2 targets, 2 receptions, 42 yards
  • Josh Hill: 5 targets, 3 receptions, 39 yards

 

  • Kyler Murray: 19/33, 220 yards + 2 carries, 13 yards
  • Chase Edmonds: 7 carries, 8 yards + 4 targets, 2 receptions, 5 yards
  • Zach Zenner: 1 carry, 0 yards + 1 target, 1 reception, 13 yards
  • Christian Kirk: 11 targets, 8 receptions, 79 yards + 1 carry, 19 yards
  • Damiere Byrd: 5 targets, 2 receptions, 18 yards
  • Charles Clay: 3 targets, 3 receptions, 88 yards

Brees is back. Kamara is still injured. Michael Thomas is a stud. Saints keep rolling. New Orleans has the best rushing defense in the league. The Saints have allowed less than 300 total yards in 5 straight. Arizona has allowed 7 100 yard receivers this season. Edmonds left with a hamstring injury. Cardinals running-backs continue to frustrate fantasy owners. The Cardinals just traded for Kenyan Drake.

Jaguars Ghost the Jets 29-15

  • Sam Darnold: 21/30, 218 yards, 2 TDs, 3 INTs
  • Le’Veon Bell: 9 carries, 23 yards + 5 targets, 3 receptions, 12 yards
  • Bilal Powell: 4 carries, 11 yards
  • Ryan Griffin: 4 targets, 4 receptions, 66 yards, 2 TDs
  • Demaryius Thomas: 5 targets, 5 receptions, 63 yards
  • Robby Anderson: 6 targets, 4 receptions, 43 yards
  • Jamison Crowder: 5 targets, 3 receptions, 24 yards

 

  • Gardner Minshew II: 22/34, 279 yards, 3 TDs, 1 fumble + 8 carries, 28 yards
  • Leonard Fournette: 19 carries, 76 yards + 7 targets, 7 receptions, 60 yards
  • Chris Conley: 7 targets, 4 receptions, 103 yards, 1 TD
  • DJ Chark Jr.: 12 targets, 6 receptions, 79 yards, 1 TD
  • Keelan Cole: 2 targets, 2 receptions, 12 yards, 1 TD
  • Seth DeValve: 1 target, 1 reception, 11 yards
  • Josh Oliver: 2 targets, 1 reception, 6 yards

Jets blitzed Minshew too much. The Jags mascot dressed up as a ghost after Darnold said he was seeing ghosts against the Patriots last week. Bell has yet to get 100 yards in a game this season. Fournette is looking like a stud RB lately.

Colts Beat Broncos 15-13

  • Joe Flacco: 20/32, 174 yards + 1 carry, 9 yards, 3 sacks
  • Phillip Lindsay: 14 carries, 59 yards + 5 targets, 5 receptions, 17 yards
  • Royce Freeman: 12 carries, 40 yards, 1 TD + 2 targets, 1 reception, 5 yards
  • Courtland Sutton: 6 targets, 3 receptions, 72 yards
  • Diontae Spencer: 2 targets, 2 receptions, 18 yards + 1 carry, 5 yards
  • Fred Brown: 2 targets, 1 reception, 16 yards
  • DaeSean Hamilton: 1 target
  • Noah Fant: 8 targets, 5 receptions, 26 yards

 

  • Jacoby Brissett: 15/25, 202 yards + 6 carries, 34 yards, 4 sacks, 1 fumble
  • Marlon Mack: 19 carries, 76 yards, 1 TD + 1 target, 1 reception, 14 yards
  • Nyheim Hines: 4 carries, 12 yards + 3 targets, 3 receptions, 34 yards
  • Jordan Wilkins: 2 carries, 5 yards
  • T.Y. Hilton: 6 targets, 2 receptions, 54 yards
  • Chester Rogers: 2 targets, 1 reception, 7 yards
  • Zach Pascal: 2 targets, 1 reception, 6 yards
  • Parris Campbell: 1 target
  • Jack Doyle: 5 targets, 4 receptions, 61 yards
  • Eric Ebron: 4 targets, 3 receptions, 34 yards

Flacco isn’t good and the Broncos blew it. TY Hilton got open late in the 4th for the big play that led to the win. Hilton still hasn’t had a 100 yard game this season, but he opens the offense up for Mack and others.

Texans Beat Raiders 27-24

  • Derek Carr: 18/30, 285 yards, 3 TDs
  • Josh Jacobs: 18 carries 66 yards + 2 targets, 2 catches, 15 yards
  • DeAndre Washington: 5 carries, 23 yards + 1 target, 1 catch, 4 yards
  • Darren Waller: 8 targets, 2 catches, 11 yards, 1 TD
  • Tyrell Williams: 6 targets, 3 catches, 91 yards, 1 TD
  • Hunter Renfrow: 4 targets, 4 catches, 88 yards, 1 TD
  • Zay Jones: 2 targets, 2 catches, 27 yards
  • Foster Moreau: 2 targets, 1 catch, 10 yards

 

  • DeShaun Watson: 27/39, 279 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INTs
  • Carlos Hyde: 19 carries, 83 yards + 1 target
  • Duke Johnson Jr.: 3 carries, 1 yard + 5 targets, 4 catches, 33 yards, 1 TD
  • DeAndre Hopkins: 13 targets, 11 catches, 109 yards
  • Kenny Stills: 5 targets, 3 catches, 22 yards
  • Darren Fells: 6 targets, 6 catches, 58 yards, 2 TDs
  • DeAndre Carter: 3 targets, 1 catch, 46 yards

Watson is more clutch than Carr. Watson passed Derek’s brother, David Carr, for 2nd most pass Tds in Texans History. Hunter Renfrow got a long touchdown. Gruden continues to praise opposing team’s QBs, while ignoring his own. He compared Watson to Michael Jordan this week.

Seahawks Beat Falcons 27-20

  • Russell Wilson: 14/20, 182 yards, 2 TDs + 4 carries, 4 yards
  • Chris Carson: 20 carries, 90 yards, 1 TD + 1 target
  • Rashaad Penny: 8 carries, 55 yards
  • Tyler Lockett: 6 targets, 6 receptions, 100 yards
  • D.K. Metcalf: 5 targets, 3 receptions, 13 yards, 2 TDs
  • David Moore: 4 targets, 1 reception, 23 yards + 1 carry, 2 yards
  • Jacob Hollister: 2 targets, 2 receptions, 18 yards

 

  • Matt Schaub: 39/52, 460 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
  • Devonta Freeman: 13 carries, 39 yards + 8 targets, 8 receptions, 63 yards
  • Brian Hill: 3 carries, 29 yards, 1 TD
  • Kenjon Barner: 1 carry, 1 yard
  • Julio Jones: 12 targets, 10 receptions, 152 yards
  • Calvin Ridley: 7 targets, 4 receptions, 70 yards
  • Russell Gage: 9 targets, 7 receptions, 58 yards
  • Justin Hardy: 4 targets, 2 receptions, 23 yards
  • Austin Hooper: 7 targets, 6 receptions, 65 yards, 1 TD

Seahawks got up by 20-something and let the Falcons claw back. Matt Schaub didn’t look terrible, but Russell Wilson is clearly better. Falcons haven’t had an interception for 6 straight games. Austin Hooper looks like a stud TE. Ridley, Hooper, and Jones stepped up without Sanu. Falcons don’t have a defense. They don’t sack and they don’t turn you over.

49ers Shitpump the Panthers 51-13

  • Kyle Allen: 19/37, 158 yards, 3 INTs
  • Christian McCaffery: 14 carries, 117 yards, 1 TD + 5 targets, 4 receptions, 38 yards
  • Jordan Scarlett: 4 carries, 9 yards
  • Reggie Bonnafon: 1 carry, 4 yards + 3 targets, 1 reception, 3 yards
  • Curtis Samuel: 11 targets, 4 receptions, 46 yards
  • D.J. Moore: 9 targets, 5 receptions, 38 yards
  • Jarius Wright: 4 targets, 2 receptions, 12 yards
  • Greg Olsen: 2 targets, 2 receptions, 13 yards

 

  • Jimmy Garoppolo: 18/22, 175 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT
  • Tevin Coleman: 11 carries, 105 yards, 3 TDs + 2 targets, 2 receptions, 13 yards, 1 TD
  • Matt Breida: 11 carries, 35 yards + 1 target, 1 reception, 15 yards
  • Raheem Mostert: 9 carries, 60 yards, 1 TD
  • Jeff Wilson: 2 carries, 6 yards
  • Emmanuel Sanders: 5 targets, 4 receptions, 25 yards, 1 TD
  • Deebo Samuel: 3 targets, 3 receptions, 19 yards + 2 carries, 29 yards, 1 TD
  • Dante Pettis: 3 targets, 1 reception, 5 yards
  • George Kittle: 7 targets, 6 receptions, 86 yards

Whatever. Panthers got manhandled. Just bring Cam Newton back and beat the Titans. I bet on my Panthers to have over 8 wins this season… they have to win at home this week for that bet to hit and them to make the playoffs. Carolina still have Saints 2x, at Packers, and at Colts on their schedule. Not easy games. 51 points were the most for the 49ers since 1993 when Steve Young was their QB. Young is 19 years older than their head coach, Kyle Shanahan.

Packers Beat Chiefs 31-24

  • Aaron Rodgers: 23/35, 305 yards, 3 TDs + 6 carries, 29 yards
  • Aaron Jones: 13 carries, 67 yards + 8 targets, 7 receptions, 159 yards, 2 TDs
  • Jamaal Williams: 7 carries, 22 yards, 1 TD + 3 targets, 3 receptions, 14 yards, 1 TD
  • Jake Kumerow: 4 targets, 2 receptions, 48 yards
  • Allen Lazard: 5 targets, 5 receptions, 42 yards
  • Jimmy Graham: 5 targets, 3 receptions, 20 yards

 

  • Matt Moore: 24/36, 267 yards, 2 TDs
  • LeSean McCoy: 9 carries, 40 yards, fumble + 4 targets, 4 receptions, 23 yards
  • Damien Williams: 7 carries, 30 yards, 1 TD
  • Tyreek Hill: 9 targets, 6 receptions, 76 yards + 1 carry, 5 yards
  • Mecole Hardman: 2 targets, 2 receptions, 55 yards, 1 TD
  • Travis Kelce: 8 targets, 4 receptions, 63 yards, 1 TD

Rodgers is an amazing QB. Andy Reid’s clock management is once again questionable. Hardman and Hill are crazy fast. The Packers have a great two-headed running-back monster in Jones and Williams. Jones had 159 receiving yards. Davante Adams who?McCoy had a costly fumble. Matt Moore has lost his last 8 against a QB that has won a Super Bowl. Jones has 11 Tds, the last Packer RB to have that many Tds in a season was Ahman Green in 2003.
