Hello everyone! Welcome to Week 9 of the 2015 NFL season.
This season is a tale of the unbeaten. We entered Week 8 with five teams. Now, that number dwindled slightly.
The New England Patriots opened the week business as usual, defeating the Miami Dolphins. Sunday saw the Cincinnati Bengals hold on to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers and the returning Ben Roethlisberger.
It was Sunday night when the undefeated of five turned to four.
The Denver Broncos pulverized the Green Bay Packers 29-10, holding Aaron Rodgers to 77 passing yards. The Broncos also traded for former 49ers TE Vernon Davis. In other words, Peyton Manning just received another weapon.
Monday night almost saw the Carolina Panthers fall to the struggling Indianapolis Colts in overtime. It was the late heroics of Panthers kicker Chad Gano, who hit a game-winning 52-yard field goal to keep Carolina undefeated.
The Panthers join the Patriots, Bengals and Broncos as the only undefeated teams. Which one will run the table to remain unbeaten?
Now, let’s talk picks. I went 12-4 in the picks for Week 8, bringing my total to 92-46. See what I got wrong below.
