LSU’s domination of the NFL continued this past week. With noa ctual Tigers to watch this weekend, use this as a chance to familiarize yourself with which players are dominating so you can tune in next week for some winning efforts.
Broncos 14 at Browns 17
Jarvis Landry returned from IR and caught five passes for 37 yards. Odell Beckham Jr. struggled again with only two catches for 23 yards. Kinda funny how that’s a ho hum Landry statline while Beckham, who only had 14 fewer yards, is struggling. But he really is and hopefully Cleveland figures something out.
On the defensive side Grant Delpit and Greedy Williams each broke up a pass while Delpit added a tackle. Lloyd Cushenberry one again anchored the O-line of a Broncos offense that is struggling mightily right now.
NFLSU Score: 6/10
Washington Football Team 10 at Packers 24
Saahdiq Charles didn’t play so there’s nothing to see here. Move along.
NFLSU Score: 0/10
Bengals 41 at Ravens 17
There is something to see here. It’s Ja’Marr Chase being the best receiver in the whole fucking NFL.
Eight catches for 201 yards and an emphatic TD. If you think the Bengals offense is nothing but Burrow to Chase bombs, think again. No. 9 is lighting it up all around (but most of it is to Chase for sure)
Hey remember how we said Joe Burrow was going to live a cursed, miserable life with the desolate Bengals? Well they are currently in first place in the entire AFC. Burrow has led them to five wins in the first seven games. The Bengals won four games without Joe Burrow the two previous seasons combined. He has arrived and the whole team put the league on notice with this one. He went 23-38 for a career high 416 yards and 3 TDs. The Bengals were a fun novelty at first. Now I think LSU fans without an NFL team are obligated to join the Bengals bandwagon so we have something to smile about again. (They better not lose to the Jets after I wrote that)
NFLSU Score: 10/10
Falcons 30 at Dolphins 28
Deion Jones put up a whopping 15 tackles, 3 TFL and a sack, while Russell Gage caught 4 passes for 67 yards including a 49-yard TD. Don’t look now but the Falcons are 3-3. With Georgia ranked No. 1 and the Braves in the World Series I can promise you nobody is looking now at the Falcons.
NFLSU Score: 7/10
Jets 13 at Patriots 54
Jalen Mills and Davon Godchaux combined for four tackles. The past few years I’ve been following closely hoping we could get an LSU player on all 32 teams, but at this point I’d prefer if we just skip the Jets. Let’s get the other 31 though.
NFLSU Score: 2/10
Panthers 3 at Giants 25
The Joe Brady luster is starting to wear off. Going from Joe Burrow to Sam Darnold is a tough break though. Donte Jackson had another nice game with four tackles and a pass deflection. He has established himself as a lynchpin of the Carolina defense.
NFLSU Score: 2/10
Chiefs 3 at Titans 27
No Kristian Fulton but no problem for the Titans defense. The explosive Chiefs offense was shut down as Darrell Williams had 50 total yards on eight touches, but they definitely need Clyde back, among other things. Tyrann Mathieu had six tackles, but the KC defense was still a black hole until it was too late. I still think we see this team back in the playoffs though.
NFLSU Score: 4/10
Lions 19 at Rams 28
While this was an uneven matchup there was a lot of fanfare going in and we all know why... MICHAEL BROCKERS REVENGE GAME! THREE TACKLES AGAINTS HIS FORMER TEAM WOOOOOOO!
I’ve said this before but if you want an NFL team to bandwagon as an LSU fan and the Bengals are too mainstream for you, I’d suggest the Rams simply to support the logic-defying Andrew Whitworth.
NFLSU Score: 3/10
Eagles 22 at Raiders 33
Foster Moreau didn’t just catch a TD but was the Raiders’ leading receiver with six catches for 60 yards! This team is really fun to watch. They seem to be playing a whole lot better ever since they fired that asshole don’t they?
NFLSU Score: 5/10
Texans 5 at Cardinals 31
Arizona I am begging you to put Rashard Lawrence on the field. You are too awesome a team to not have any LSU Tigers contributing. If you’re not gonna play him please go sign Eric Reid or Michael Divinity or SOMEBODY PLEASE!
NFLSU Score: 0/10
Bears 3 at Buccaneers 38
Leonard Fournette scored a TD in his third straight game and Devin White recovered a fumble to go along with a team-high 10 tackles. The Bucs head to the Superdome next Sunday where both guys will play in front of a full crowd in Louisiana for the first time since their Tiger days. Should be fun!
NFLSU Score: 8/10
Colts 30 at 49ers 18
Every time I search to see what Arden Key is doing for the 49ers I find Raiders fans celebrating he doesn’t play for them anymore. Seems like he hasn’t quite lived up to his third round billing. Anyway he had two tackles in this game played during a bomb cyclone (??????)
NFLSU Score: 1/10
Saints 13 at Seahawks 10
The Saints swapped LSU guys by cutting Will Clapp (he’ll be back, he always is) and activating Kwon Alexander off IR. Kwon was limited coming off the injury with only one tackle, but the Saints defense was just fine without him.
Jamal Adams had two tackles and a critical pass breakup on a third down. You know who else broke up a pass? Al Woods!!! But he also jumped offsides on a field goal that gave the Saints a first down on the decisive drive. Ethan Pocic and Damien Lewis didn’t play, but we should be thankful none of our guys played offense in this game because it was, well... offensive.
