NFL 2014 – Week 4 Preview

Following what was a perfect week for me, prediction-wise, we go into a week full of action – particularly over here in Europe – as the Oakland Raiders get ready to dismantle a stuttering Miami Dolphins team. We also enter a week wherein we’ll see the great rivalry of the National Football League – the Green Bay Packers versus the Chicago Bears – both are storied franchises, the former with one of the best quarterbacks in our day and age, and the latter with a stellar receiving team. Neither the Packers nor the Bears are without problems – and that’ll undoubtedly lead to turnovers. I will predict the outcome of the aforementioned matches, along with two other games that I find peculiar; but first, let’s look at the new and improved I’m Jeffrey Rex Power Ranking. As always a pretender, the best team of last week, as well as the worst, will be highlighted.

Week 4 Predictions

  • Not so Eli-te, but still a Manning. Remember when the hot topic in the National Football League was whether Eli Manning was indeed elite, or perhaps if he was even better than his brother? If you don’t, then you’re one lucky camper. For two years, Eli Manning has been performing extremely poorly – and he can no longer call himself an elite quarterback. Thankfully, for the Giants, they aren’t facing one when they meet the Redskins. With Robert Griffin III out injured, the biggest position in sports will be filled by the Chad Pennington-lookalike Kirk Cousins. Don’t get me wrong, I like him – but I’m taking a Coughlin-led Giants team over a rookie head coach w/ a backup quarterback any day of the week.
  • Raiding London. A disgruntled Miami team goes to London to battle a rookie-led Raiders team. I see Derek Carr beat the Tannehill-led Dolphins.
  • Saint Survival. New Orleans have been poor, disappointing in truth, but I see them getting a tough win against a running-Dallas team.
  • Cutler’s Takeover. The Bears have a great opportunity this week. They are able to push Green Bay to a 1-3 record, whilst maintaining their own top position in the North. Aaron Rodgers will have to perform to his best ability if he is to beat the potentially deadly Bears offense. And I? I doubt the Packers will be able to handle it. Bears win.
