Few things are as bad as that. Just the ACL. Not puke-level near-amputatation.

Was a skeptic of how good the Eagles really are until today. Destroying a good Broncos D.

Both the Rams and Eagles are separating themselves from the rest of the league right now.

Yeah, amazing what good QB play will get you.

What has happened to Denver's defense?

Also, the Bengals are a mess.

Seahawks learned today why we got rid of Blair Walsh. 0-3 from 44, 39, and 49. They lost a 3 point game after failing on two 2-point conversions.

I will be shocked if Marvin Lewis made it through the season.

Coaching, largely, it seems. And offensive ineptitude.

Is the coaching staff different? It is odd for them to be so bad.
