Hello football fans! Welcome to Week 4 of the NFL season.
Let’s recap the week that was, which became very eventful. The rematch between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks was more exciting than their Super Bowl encounter. The Broncos took the game to overtime, but the Seahawks prevailed 26-20 thanks to a Marshawn Lynch touchdown. However the defending champs aren’t the talk of their NFC West Division.
That honor goes to the Arizona Cardinals, who soundly defeated the San Francisco 49ers at home. Backup quarterback Drew Stanton got the start again for Arizona and led them to a 23-14 victory. They will sit atop the West again, as they take their bye week this Sunday.
Another team that will take their rest on top is the Cincinnati Bengals. They lead the NFC North with a 3-0 record and trounced the Tennessee Titans 33-7. Division rival Cleveland Browns will also rest, as will the St. Louis Rams, Broncos and Seahawks.
I went 12-4 last week, bringing my total to 28-20. The following is what I got right and wrong for Week 3.
