The Steelers actually won a game  cheers granted it was the Bengals but i'll take it.

Bonceys Bills played well against the Patriots and ran them close, they look to have a good defense and a decent young QB so they should do well this year.

The Chiefs are still unbeaten but had a stiff test against the much improve Lions. The Rams were beaten by the Bucs which was a shock.

The big game of the week was the Saints against the Cowboys who are being tipped to do very well this year, The Saints edged it in a low scoring game. Kamara for the Saints is a fantastic RB and Bridgewater is doing ok filling for the injured Brees

Another week and another loss for the Steelers  Rolling Eyes

Bonceys Bills won again and the Patriots keep rolling on. Shock of the week for me was the Colts beating the Chiefs and the Rams also got beat for the second week running but it was a close game and i expect them to bounce back.
The 49ers are the surprise team this season so far and thrashed the Browns 31-3 and are unbeaten so far. 

The Bears seriously pissed me off this week, i had them in my acca on Sunday and all other 5 teams won and they lost, the bastards - knock on wood if you're with me  Very Happy

Only just caught up with it after a cheeky week in Kos.
Thought the Steelers really should have won it - and I won't spoil it by writing about today's result against the Chargers who have been gash recently.
Chiefs loss last week seemed largely due to Mahomes injury but this week they were taken apart by Deshaun Watson who was brilliant.
Only the 49ers seem to be keeping pace with the Pats - which is ironic as Jimmy Garappolo seems to be finding his feet in his first injury-free season since the Pats traded him - a decision they may yet live to regret. TBH the 49ers looked great in the games he played last season before he tore his ACL.

But there are a few good looking teams about - still a bit early to tell until they've all played top opposition. Not sure about the Bills yet, but they've got the Dolphins next so they should be good for 5 and 1.

Th Steelers won cheers . i was watching the highlights last night and it was practically a home game for the Steelers looking at the crowd.

Another interesting week, the Chiefs and Rams were beaten again and are both wobbling at the moment. The Seahawks and the Saints are going under the radar and playing well.

The only unbeaten teams are now the Patriots and the 49ers, please God don't let the Patriots win another Superbowl!

You know Bill B and Brady will be busting a gut to extend their records, but I think the Chiefs will come back when Mahomes gets over the ankle injury and Tyreek Hill gets full match fitness after his layoff - and the 49ers are looking good with Jimmy G back and fit. As mentioned there are a few teams that seem to be rising to the top now the season is properly underway but there's a helluva long way to go.

Just watched the Lions vs Packers highlights and the Lions were robbed! 2 facemask penalties called against them when both were shoulder high, very poor calls and ultimately cost the Lions a win.

Watched the early games on Sunday but waited until tonight to see the rest including the Pats who looked the like the only team who are unbeatable at the moment. It will surely happen, but TBH I'm struggling to see who is going to do it in the AFC - Chiefs again? Bills ran the Pats close a couple of weeks ago.
Hard to tell as the AFC East has two of the better teams and two of the worst teams so maybe it's unrepresentative?
Ravens looked good at the Steelers who I'm sorry to say still have work to do Norpig.
NFC has clear favourites by comparison. 49ers, Packers and Saints all looking good in their respective divisions at this stage.
Let the plot thicken.

Only Q2 ATM but the Steelers need to get their fingers out Norpig - we'll see how it pans out.

The Packers are looking very good this year, watched their game with the Chiefs who are missing Mahomes badly. 
The 49ers and Saints keep on winning as well. I like the look of Taysum Hill at the Saints. Supposed to be a QB but plays as a WR and RB as well and is a great player.

Very slow start for the Steelers though going 2 TDs down to the Dolphins in a game that on paper should have been a stroll in the park - still they got it together just before HT. Not sure how far the Steelers will go this year given how some of the other teams have stepped up. Ravens also looking hot in the north, Packers, Saints and 49ers looking dominant in their divisions, NFC East and AFC South both a lottery. And then there's the Pats....not playing at their best and I'm still not convinced they've adequately replaced the Gronk, but efficient and ruthless as ever so far.
Steelers have a tough match against the Colts coming up and that is more likely to be a measure of how they've progressed.
Pats v Ravens on Monday too - another test.
Sadly, Chiefs looking like a one man team although I do like Tyreek Hill.
Equally sadly, the Bills are still a bit unpredictable but a win against the struggling Redskins would take them to 8 and 6 and very much still in the frame for the post season.

I did pick them because I thought they were more in line with Bolton. Despite living in NY for 20+ years, I couldn’t go with the Giants or Jets because it just seemed like picking Man Utd or City.

That made me laugh - Jets are 7 and 1 and the Giants are 8 and 2 so they're not much better than the Bengals.
Why the Bengals though? Why not a team nearer to NYC like the Bills, Pats, Redskins, Browns or Steelers? In recent times only the Pats would be considered glory-hunting.

I'd have probably gone with the Jets in your position Fin as i always go for the underdog.

I only started following the Steelers in the 80s when they were shit, i know now they were amazing in the 70's but when it first came on channel 4 all those years ago they were poor and i didn't want to follow all the big teams of the time like the Dolphins, Cowboys and the 49ers. 
My second team were the Chargers when they were in still in San Diego for the same reason  Very Happy

Ah but I didn’t just pick the Bengals this year. It was around 9 years ago.

I went for the Bengals after watching a season of Hard Knocks on HBO. It’s was the first time that I really gave a shit about football since it was given a massive push back in the 80’s in the UK (Redskins v Raiders in the Super Bowl I believe).

I’ve just moved back to NY and started a new role with the XFL which kicks off right after the Super Bowl. Having to brush up on my knowledge of the game super-quick at the moment!

Isn't the XFL run by Vince McMahon from WWE? I presume its the summer league similar to the AAF that only lasted a few months.

Spring league. Kicking off after the Super Bowl with 8 teams in the first season. Fingers crossed it’s more successful than the AAF! NY, Tampa Bay, St. Louis, DC, Dallas, Houston, Seattle and LA. It’s backed by Vince but that’s the only connection with WWE this time around.

Good luck with it Fin. Do Americans accept the rule changes? I know it's intended to be a bit quicker (which is no bad thing IMO having sat through several hours of bullshit to watch a one hour game Smile)

Seems to me that 6 teams stand out in  the AFC as most likely to make the postseason but there's a nice little battle going on in the AFC as to who will grab the final spot.
In the AFC I can't see past the Pats, Ravens, Bills, Colts, Texans and Chiefs (although the Steelers may yet turn it around even though the AFC South looks strong throughout Smile) And the Chiefs might blow it without Mahomes.
But in the NFC there are the Packers, Vikings, Saints, 49ers and Seahawks who look good enough so far but then what? Cowboys? Eagles? Rams? Panthers? Really struggling to see who is showing signs of stepping up.
What is your top twelve prediction?

I would say the teams top of their division now will go onto win and go through. i'm guessing the 2 wildcards from the AFC will be the Bills ands the Texans and from the NFC the Seahawks and Vikings.

A lot of good teams there (no Steelers though) and i'm going out on a limb now and say the Patriots will play either the Packers or the Saints in the Superbowl.

Hard to bet against the Pats and Packers for the SB at the moment but you never know. 49ers are looking excellent and even though their record isn't perfect I do like the look of the Texans - or more accurately the skill of Deshaun Watson who is playing out of his skin ATM - although with JJ Watt getting injured (again) I suspect their defence is now vulnerable.

Yay Boncey - the Bills got their win albeit against the Redskins who are now 1 - 8. But a win's a win and they're looking like contenders at 6 - 2.
Steelers absolutely stole it with the last kick of the game too. Exciting stuff.
Thought the London game would be a really tough test for the Texans against divisional rivals the Jags - in what to me looks like the toughest division of them all - but they strolled it with the aid some more magic from Watson who for me is shaping up as the QB of the season. Thought they coped in defence really well without JJ Watt. And the Chiefs finally scraped a win without Mahomes.
Oh - and the Packers lost!

Late game should be interesting as the Pats are playing their first game of a very tricky run starting with the Ravens tonight and over the next few weeks we'll find out if they're all they're cracked up to be. They've got the Eagles, the Cowboys and the Texans following that so we should learn a lot about them and where these teams are really at.
