Week 9 of the NFL season left fans scratching their heads. Upsets were happening everywhere, and now nobody knows who are the best teams in the league. For the first time in a long time, the league is wide open.

Here is a breakdown of the most significant moments from Week 9.


Don’t Circle The Wagons Just Yet

As expected, Josh Allen dominated every aspect of the Bills and Jaguars game. However, it wasn’t the Josh Allen that everyone expected. Jaguars pass-rusher Josh Allen was a menace all game to Bills QB Josh Allen. The Jaguars pulled off the biggest upset of the day, holding the high-powered Bills offense to just six points.


No OBJ = No Problem

The Battle of Ohio took place on Sunday in an important AFC North matchup. With so much swirling around the Browns with the departure of OBJ, fans were wondering how Browns QB Baker Mayfield would react. Mayfield and the Browns responded like their pants were on fire in a dominated performance over the Bengals.

The Browns offense looks like it is getting back on track as the team hopes to become healthy in the second stretch of the season.


How ‘Bout Them Broncos?

The Dallas Cowboys have been one of the hottest teams in the league, having not lost since Week One. On the other side, the Denver Broncos have been searching for anything good after being a brutal disappointment up to this point of the season. But, Week 9 proved to keep the silliness going with the Broncos routing the Cowboys at Jerry’s World. Can somebody unplug the NFL and plug it back in before next week?


The Packers Are Not Immune To Losing

Does anyone know why Aaron Rodgers didn’t play on Sunday? Last week ended with a media bang when Rodgers was ruled unavailable for the game against Kansas City due to Covid-19. The news meant Jordan Love would finally get his moment under center for the Packers.

A game that many hoped would be a Big-12 like scoring fest became a boring game between two teams in the middle of an identity crisis.


Not The Best Performance In La La Land

If any player in the NFL deserved a dream season, it would be Matthew Stafford. The guy endured so many painful seasons in Detroit that his storybook season in Los Angeles has been receiving a round of applause from around the league. Sunday night, the Stafford dream season was brought down to reality. Stafford threw two interceptions in 26 seconds, basically handing the Titans 14 points in the blink of an eye.

The Titans, who many wrote off after the Derrick Henry injury news, proved they aren’t ready to hit the panic button on their season.
