Sports: NFL (Week 3)

There are only two teams with undefeated records after the third week of play and even one of those teams barely made it through Sunday. I am trying fantasy football for the first time this year but have failed miserably at playing the right players so I have yet to win a game. The season is still young so there is a ton of football left to play and these teams on top may be at the bottom before the playoffs start. 

NFC
The Atlanta Falcons faced off against another undefeated NFC opponent, the Detroit Lions, and they should have lost. I wasn't able to watch the game but for a moment I was convinced they had lost the game but the call was reversed at the one-yard line when Golden Tate failed to cross the goal line. Despite three interceptions thrown by Matt Ryan, the Falcons are the first in this conference to get three wins. There are eight teams with a record of 2-1 including the biggest threats, the Dallas Cowboys, the Green Bay Packers, the Carolina Panthers, and the Philadelphia Eagles. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are even at 1-1 due to the early bye week from a hurricane. There are four teams at 1-2 including most surprisingly the Seattle Seahawks who lost to the Titans. Two teams are without a win, the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants.

AFC
The Kansas City Chiefs look like the best team in football. They started off by beating the Super Bowl Champions and continued their streak this season against the Los Angeles Chargers. Eight teams occupy the 2-1 including the Steelers and Ravens who both lost, the Broncos and Raiders who are behind the Chiefs in the AFC West, and the Jaguars who beat the Ravens in London. The Dolphins are even after the hurricane bye week. Three teams are 1-2 including the poor Texans who couldn't hack it against the Patriots. The Chargers, Brown, and my local Bengals are all without a win.

Finally, this week actually made the boring national anthem a little entertaining because the moronic leader of the free world attacked players for peacefully protesting police brutality. There are plenty of people who have written very interesting articles on the debate and I look forward to these athletes with their platform bringing this controversy to the attention of NFL viewers. The false patriotism of the president and others is a dull lie that they will push to help them stay in power for as long as possible and steal as much as they can. Everything is political these days, especially sports.
