The NFL is and always will be a league of parity. In the NFL you can be 12 – 4 one year and then go 4 – 12 the next. Predicting who will win games is potluck at best. There is no way to know which team will show up when the first whistle blows. I have been watching games and I mean a lot of games so far in these first three weeks. The games seem to be closer than the score even shows most times.
The teams who are on the bottom are close to breaking through but they are a few players away for the most part. Several superstars are doing what they always do but some teams have far exceeded expectations that were set at the beginning of the year. For the first three weeks I have to say I have been impressed with a few teams and individuals in the league.
However, Who Would Have Thought???
The Kansas City Chiefs would be undefeated in the first 3 weeks of the season. Yeah you read that right the Chiefs are undefeated. The Kansas City Chiefs feature a two headed monster at running back. Thomas Jones is doing what he always does and Jamaal Charles has added another dimension to the equation. They are the modern day “Thunder and Lightning” backfield. The Chiefs do it with a running game and a defense stacked with first round draft picks. They also quietly assembled the best coaching staff in football. That staff was 90% of the reason the Patriots were so dominant in the earlier part of the decade.
