The Raiders are a complete mystery to me this year.  Especially since they were actually pretty good last year.  Gruden comes in and all of a sudden they suck.  I don't think you can blame it all on free agency.

6-10 is "pretty good"?

This is a team that won only 81 games over the prior 15 seasons.  That's an average of 5.4 wins per season (approximately 1 win per season better than the Browns), and if you take out the aberration of 2016, the average drops to 4.9 wins per season.  The problem (not that I consider it to be a problem  ;D) is incompetent ownership and management.

I'm a big Gruden fan, but he was annoying AF as an announcer.  He was one of those guys that was all like "Well, that's just a all around good young man!" for every player. 

Starting to be a fan of both Tony Romo and Troy Aikman as announcers.  Jerry can't win Super Bowls but he sure can turn out announcers!

I know, right?  Chung played the receiver hard but fair.

In any event, that game was not decided on penalties; that game was decided on defense and turnovers.  Rodgers couldn't convert on 4th down, the Pats did.    Aaron Jones didn't waste a second promenading around after his first downs, giving the "First down!" sign instead of returning to the huddle and playing football, like Cordarrelle Patterson.

Won't catch an argument from me :)

I'm also liking how every few years the Saints are taking down teams with long undefeated starts:

2012: Beat 8-0 Atlanta

2015: Beat 5-0 Atlanta

2018: Beat 8-0 L.A. Rams

Upon further investigation, this is also the third time the Saints have ruined a 6-0 or better start by the Rams:

1978: Beat a 7-0 Rams

2001: Beat a 6-0 Rams

Pre-Week 10 Power Rankings
1. Chiefs - winning almost seems too easy for them now
2. Saints - monster win over the Rams
3. Patriots - bend but don't break defense comes up big as usual
4. Rams -  their defense has been bad in every game against a good team this year, which is concerning
5. Chargers - possibly the most talented team in the AFC
6. Panthers - they could easily sneak up and steal the North and even the 1 seed
7. Steelers - are rolling now, but are they destined for another 11-win season and quick playoff ouster?
8. Texans - eked out a win thanks to some brain dead coaching by the Broncos
9. Vikings - it was really only a matter of time before they got it together
10. Redskins - not sure how much they will stay in here

Trending up:
Colts - with their schedule, they could easily get to 9-7 and maybe steal the 2nd wild card in the AFC
Falcons - I still think they dug too big a hole early on, but you never know
Bengals - losing AJ Green is big
49ers - they won a game (albeit over the hapless Raiders)
Titans - big win at Dallas coming out of the bye

Trending down:
Raiders - Jon Gruden LOL
Browns - Browns being the Browns
Ravens - John Harbaugh on the hot seat
Broncos - please lose out and get a top draft pick (and a new coach)
Jets - this team needs to hire a QB coach soon

Top 5 MVP Contenders
1. Patrick Mahomes - will he threaten Peyton's single season TD passing record?
2. Drew Brees - playing the best out of all of the "old" quarterbacks right now
3. Todd Gurley - on a record-setting TD pace
5. Philip Rivers - he is playing fantastic
5. Adam Thielen - considering what he is doing this year, he needed a mention

I think it's a mistake to have Brees second to Mahomes.  Brees doesn't have the weapons that Mahomes does, and we haven't gotten to the Chiefs late season fade yet.
