Pittsburgh pulled off a win that most people were chalking up as a loss to the Colts. That could've really made things interesting in the AFC North but Baltimore pulled off a huge upset in defeating the Patriots 37-20 last night and maintaining that 2 game lead in the standings

I can't figure out the Ravens. I week they look bad like against the Steelers and another week they look like the best team in the AFC like against the Patriots

NE can be beaten on the road. The Steelers did it last year.

Brady likes to run that fast, no huddle offense, but it's much easier to do at home than on the road when he has to deal with all that crowd noise like there was in Balt last night. The hurry up offense also helps his OL, which has been beset by injuries this season, by not asking them to hold their blocks for more than a couple of seconds. Brady usually being able to move the offense up and down the field for scores takes the pressure off their defense. When the offense struggles, the whole scheme comes apart. It's why I think Belichek will look a lot less like a genius once Brady's gone.

Edelman's fumble was the difference.  Away crowd or not, Pats erased a 17-0 deficit, Brady had hit on a bunch of passes in a row, and they were driving to take the lead.  Instead of scoring themselves., the Ravens house the fumble for a TD of their own.  14 point swing in fifteen seconds.  Edelman is usually pretty clean with the ball too.

Could not agree more with this. Patriots offensive line looks suspect this season also. Makes me wonder if Brady will stay injury free

he'll be alright if his receivers get open, he gets rid of it fast. Maybe that's why Bellichick has been willing to take shots on diva/big name WRs(Moss, AB, Gordon, etc) as he has gotten older. So when he does go downfield, he throwing it to a stud that can get open. Worked with Moss... When Brady was younger he was throwing to nobodies, making them look like superstars. Troy Brown would of been a special teams guy if it wasn't for Brady . Patton and Givens would absolutely shred the Steelers

Ya AB obviously didnít work out and Josh Gordon is just flat out done from an ability standpoint. Sandy is consistent but they donít have anybody who can make plays down the field or catch a fade right now.

SD had no clue at the end.  All they had to do was run some dink passes to get into FG range, but Rivers if doing his Big Ben imitation and trying to throw long bombs.  They had time to move and win the game...did they beat the spread?

Over/Under was 48.5 and unless I am mistaken because I don't keep up with betting lines, Oakland was favored by +1.5 so they covered

The Raiders winning was not necessarily a bad thing. When you look at their schedule they are probably heading for 8-8 I would be shocked if they finish better. A white hot Chargers would probably have been more of a threat.

We have a shocker happening as the Falcons are beating on the Saints.  Whatís crazy is Atlanta has a horrendous defense and they are holding the Saints offense in check.  I guess chalk it up to divisional rivals and they know how to play each other.

Yep, Saints are about to take a horrible loss and it is in New Orleans which makes it double shocking. Saints have to hope for a Carolina loss later to keep their lead in the division and a 49ers loss tomorrow for NFC seeding

And the Saints just get hit with a roughing the kicker penalty which gives the Falcons a first down and pretty much seals a Saints loss

How about Kansas City losing to the Titans 35-32 and that was with Patrick Mahomes

Browns beat the Bills 19-16

Saints looked horrible and get beat down by the Falcons 26-9
