They finished as Lambs under Jeff Fisher, but Sean McVay has made their offense much richer. Now here comes Wade Phillips on his side of the ball, developing a team that’s more complete, y’all.
I use a pretty basic recipe for that. I usually do equal parts beef and spicy Italian sausage. Then I add a little bit of prosciutto, chopped up, to add saltiness; it’s a little change of pace. Then the usual stuff: eggs, bread crumbs, some chopped parsley and Parmesan cheese. I pan fry them and let them simmer in the sauce for a while.
The Patriots are as motivated as usual and appear to have smoothed out their early-season glitches. The Raiders couldn’t be more motivated, hanging around the fringes of the playoff chase but also within view of the AFC West lead despite their terrible recent losing streak.
Who saw this coming before the season, the Rams doing a 180 from the end of the Jeff Fisher regime, the Vikings cruising without their starting quarterback? What the Vikings should worry about, though, is how last week Case Keenum went from unstoppable to a nightmare and back over the course of that game in Washington. The Rams, who had four takeaways and three sacks in Houston last week,take advantage.
The Saintsstart scoreboard-watching, as they’ve climbed to within range of the Eagles and are even with the Rams and Vikings atop the NFC. (Not to mention just ahead of the Panthers.) They need to keep handling their business, and against a team that had no answer for the Vikings on the ground or in the air, they should with their newly-balanced offense. Washington is already in danger of losing sight of the NFC wild-card teams.
