Six games - the best & worst this weekend

 The 5 o’clock club is published Wednesday to Saturday during the season Cheap Josh Norman Jersey , and aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.So, what’s this article about?In a weekend where the Jets - Browns game was the most-watched Thursday night game since 2015, there seems to be a dearth of really great matchups, but looks can be deceiving.Who would’ve thought that a game involving the Browns, going into the game 1-33-1 since the start of the 2016 season, would be so much fun to watch?Here’s the deal... I’ll give you six games below.Each of the six — like the Jets vs Browns game — has the potential to be a real stinker... or a surprising treat.In the comments section, nominate the BEST game of the group and the WORST game of the group, and — of course — tell us why.NY Giants v Houston TexansUnless we see the third tie of the season here in Week 3, one of these teams will fall to 0 - 3.This offseason, both teams had a lot of people picking them as division winners and playoff contenders, and each team had a significant number of doubters.(Personally, I had the Giants pegged as a sub-.500 club and I picked the Texans to win their division). This is a critical game for both teams in terms of keeping the season and any real playoff hopes alive (yes, I know about the Chargers).Is this just a turd of a game between two teams that suck that no one can polish, or is it a drama-filled contest where the winner will have the opportunity to turn its season around?Injury Report:Pittsburgh Steelers v Tampa Bay Buccaneers (MNF)The Steelers were the almost automatic offseason favorite to win the NFC North for fans and journalists who tend to just project last year into this year.Meanwhile Cheap Derrius Guice Jersey , with Ryan Fitzpatrick opening the season in place of the suspended Jameis Winston, not much was expected of the Bucs.At the moment, Tampa bay is one of only two undefeated NFC teams, and they lead the division (with the Saints & Falcons playing each other this week).Pittsbugh is dead last in the AFC North.Lev Bell hasn’t shown up to play, Antonio Brown was disciplined for skipping practice.Will we see Ryan Fitzpatrick embarrass Big Ben’s team?Will the Steelers finally show up to play a game in 2018?Is this going to be a slugfest between two talented teams; a lopsided win when the reality sinks in that either Fitzmagic really isn’t this good, or the Steelers really are this bad; or will it be a stinker of a game when we realize that this is just a contest between two bad teams?Dallas Cowboys v Seattle SeahawksThe Seahawks are winless.The only reason that the Cowboys aren’t is that somebody had to win last week’s game against the Giants.At the end of this game, these two teams will have a combined record of 2-4.If the Cowboys lose this game, they’ll still be ahead of the Giants, but if the Seahawks lose, they’ll remain tied with the Cardinals as winless teams in the basement of the NFC West (or take over the basement if Arizona can squeeze out a victory against the Bears).Dallas is currently in a three-way tie for the lead in the NFC East, so their season is very much alive, and they have the chance to go to Seattle and put the Seahawks playoff hopes to rest along with all memory of the Legion of Boom.Is there enough hope left that Russell Wilson can rally his team to a home victory and push a mud-pie into the face of the visiting Cowboys to make this an interesting game for Redskins fans who love to see Dallas lose, or is Pete Carroll’s team — who have lost two road games to the Broncos and Bears — simply made up of traffic cones and crash dummies who are no-hopers ready to roll over for Jason Garrett’s silver and blue squad?Injury report:Indianapolis Colts v Philadelphia EaglesThe question here is: How good are the Bengals?If the 2-0 Bengals are the powerhouse of the AFC North, then maybe the Colts are a lot better then anyone thinks.If they are Cheap Da'Ron Payne Jersey , then this could be a great game.If they aren’t, then it could be a massacre, which would have the unfortunate effect of wounding the pride of the Redskins and their fans.Of course, some of the drama in this game will revolve around the return of Carson Wentz to the role of starting quarterback for the Eagles.Does that, alone, make this a watchable game, even if the Colts prove to be an unworthy adversary?If the Eagles blow these guys off the field, I don’t wanna see that, but if they can give Philly the treatment that the Eagles got from Tampa Bay last week, then it could be a lot of fun to watch.Injury report: Tennessee Titans v Jacksonville JaguarsThe Titans lost to Miami by a touchdown in Week 1 and beat the Texans by a field goal in Week 2.Miami is 2-0 and leading the AFC East; Houston is 0-2 and firmly in control of the basement in the AFC South.What kind of team is Tennessee?Jacksonville just came off a hard-fought and emotional victory against the Patriots after playing the Giants closer than they should have in Week 1.Jacksonville has a fearsome defense, but this is a division game, which means that all bets are off. The Titans swept the Jaguars last season — a season in which Jax went to the AFC championship game (and nearly won).The Titans actually lead the series all-time 26-20.Will this be a classic division battle between two fairly evenly matched division rivals, or will the Titans simply be a bump in the road as the Jaguars make their inexorable march to the superbowl in February?Leonard Fournette and Jalen Ramsey are both fighting injuries and listed as questionable to play.Injury report:Los Angeles Chargers v Los Angeles RamsThe Chargers lost a shootout to the division rival Chiefs in Week 1 when Mahomes tossed 4 touchdowns, then pushed aside the Bills in Buffalo last week. In the Battle for Los Angeles Youth Brandon Scherff Jersey , do the Chargers have what it takes to give the Rams their first loss of the season? After all, while the Rams are undefeated, their two wins have come against two winless teams — the Raiders and the Cardinals. Yes, the Rams outscored their opponents 67-13, but that was against two new head coaches, one of whom had been out of football for the past decade, and has a team full of guys who were playing when he last coached. Normally, I’d say this game has “upset” written all over it, but with an injured Joey Bosa ruled out of the game, the Chargers’ chances are reduced — maybe to nil. Hell, maybe this will be the blowout that Rams fans seem to expect. Injury report:With the 49ers a likely loser to the Chiefs this week, Sean McVay’s team has the opportunity to establish a stranglehold on the NFC West here in Week 3. Is there any chance that they falter against the lighning bolts? The Redskins faced off against Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday and the first quarter between the two teams gotten off to the start many expected. However, the Redskins were able to get the most traction of the two teams, as well as win the field position battle. The Redskins defense was able to pressure Jaguars quarterback Cody Kessler on multiple dropbacks Womens Matthew Ioannidis Jersey , forcing him to check it down quicker than he would have liked, and even forced a fumble on one of their sacks. Washington’s defense was able to get off to a good start against Jacksonville, who after the past five weeks, ranked amongst the worst defensive units over that time-span. In all, the defensive unit has sacked Kessler four times and forced one turnover in the first half. On the other end, offensive struggles continue. Even with good field position, the Redskins offense struggles to capitalize with touchdowns or even sustaining a drive with the driving factor being penalties. The first half ineptitude proved fatal late in the second quarter, which left Washington trailing 10-3 following a Jaguars punt-return touchdown by Dede Westbrook. The Redskins had more penalties (five) than first downs in the first downs (two) in the first half against Jacksonville, but eventually would be able to gain some traction in the third quarter with the help of recently signed quarterback Josh Johnson. Johnson’s third quarter performance carried over into the fourth, leading Washington inside the Jaguars red-zone midway through the fourth quarter with a scoring pass to tight end Jeremy Sprinkle. For obvious reasons, it was the best drive Washington had to that point in the game. But not so fast, Washington’s second half offensive performance was not done yet. Following a big interception of Cody Kessler deep in the Redskins territory, Josh Johnson and Adrian Peterson co-led a huge seven-play 36-yard drive to set the Redskins up in excellent field goal position. Washington came back to beat Jacksonville 16-13 on a last-second field goal by Dustin Hopkins. Josh Johnson finished 16-of-25 for 151 yards and a touchdown through the air, and added nine rushes for 49 yards. Jamison Crowder was Johnson’s leading target Womens D.J. Swearinger Jersey , hauling in 46 yards on four receptions, bringing in each of the targets sent his way. Jeremy Sprinkle recorded his first touchdown of the season in addition to 19 yards on three catches.Adrian Peterson was Washington’s leading rusher with 51 yards on 19 carries in addition to two grabs for 20 yards. Chris Thompson also added nine yards on five rushes.On defense Mason Foster tallied seven tackles to lead the team, while the Redskins recorded eight sacks including two apiece from Jonathan Allen and Ryan Kerrigan who surpassed Charles Mann’s career mark, and moved into second place in team history. Fabian Moreau’s second half interception ended up being crucial in the Redskins’ winning effort.The defense did a tremendous job bottling up an under-manned Jacksonville offense. Cody Kessler was just 9-of-17 for 57 yards and an interception through the air. Kessler was also the Jaguars’ leading rusher with 68 yards on 11 carries, while Leonard Fournette was held to just 11 carries for 46 yards. Despite a breakdown allowing a punt return for a touchdown in the waining moments of thefirst half, Washington’s special teams continued to stand out as Dustin Hopkins was 3/3 for field goals, and team MVP Tress Way averaged 46.5 yards per punt and pinned half of his attempts inside the 20 yard line, despite playing with a back-up long snapper for the first time this year.In the end, despite playing with their fourth starting quarterback of the season, Washington keeps their playoff hopes alive at 7-7, and a chance to win the NFC East with two games remaining in 2018.
