We have our first perfect score for the 2019 season! It belongs to Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh after dominating the Los Angeles Rams at the Coliseum on Monday night. The defense was suffocating, the run game was unstoppable and quarterback Lamar Jackson put on show worthy of the L.A. spotlight. It was physical and dynamic which reflected how Harbaugh and the entire Ravens organization envisioned this team when they first started building it.
After an uninspiring first half of the season, Adam Gase and the New York Jets find themselves in a three-game winning streak. Sure, the first two came against easier opponents but this week Gase’s team not only beat a very good Oakland Raiders team, but held Jon Gruden’s offense to a field goal. Clearly the return of QB Sam Darnold and the relationship he has with Gase is proving to be a key part to this turnaround.
Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots took care of the talented Dallas Cowboys in a low-scoring affair. Though it was close and the Cowboys put themselves in a position to win, ultimately the Patriots never lost control of the game.
Mike Vrabel and the Tennessee Titans showed up for another big game. After beating the Kansas City Chiefs and off a bye week, the Titans dominated a divisional foe, the Jacksonville Jaguars, for a key win in the standings. Credit to Vrabel for making this team a dangerous opponent to play.
