Another week is in the books. This week didn’t have many upsets but there were some surprising outcomes. This includes two of the most highly anticipated matchups ending up overtime.
The Baltimore Ravens traveled to one of the toughest venues to play at in the NFL, Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs. They also showed up with rookie Lamar Jackson starting at quarterback for a second straight week. Surprisingly enough, the Ravens have perfofmed admirably without Joe Flacco as Jackson has been a quality fill-in. Additionally, the Chiefs have learned how to play without their troubled running back Kareem Hunt but have impressed by having Spencer Ware fill that role. In a back and forth thriller, the Chiefs were able to steal a win in overtime.
The Philadelphia Eagles also went to overtime at their divisional rivals home in Dallas. The Cowboys and Eagles played a very slow 6-9 game until the 4th quarter when the teams combined for 37 points. These two teams are headed in different directions as it appears the Dallas Amari Cooper trade may have been the top move of the season across the league.
The Elldee Sports Best Bets went 2-2 for a flat 50% win rate. That is the best week here over the past 4 weeks but it appears that things are moving back in the right direction. The Houston Texans’ 9-game win streak was snapped causing one of the losses but the Seattle Seahawks win over the Vikings kept things even as they continue to win at home. We are one week closer to the playoffs and the season is only getting more exciting. Until next week, good luck.
