Maxwell Football Club Weekly Pro Football Preview – Week 3
 
Highlights of notable NFL performances for the week ending Sept. 20.
 
Special players want the ball when games are on the line in the fourth quarter. And if it seems as though games have been on the line more often this season, that’s because they have been.
 
Through two weeks, the 2021 season has produced 10 games decided by a field goal or less. That’s tied for the fourth-most such contests in NFL history through Week 2. Seven of the league’s 16 games last week were thrillers in that category.
 
Each of the Dallas Cowboys’ two games have been decided by three points or fewer, including their walk-off road win over the Chargers last week. The Cowboys (1-1), who host the Philadelphia Eagles (0-2) on Monday Night Football (8:15 PM ET, ESPN), have kept games close by leading the NFL in both takeaways (six) and turnover margin (plus-four).
 
Dallas’ opponent last week, the Los Angeles Chargers (1-1), travels to face the Kansas City Chiefs (1-1) on Sunday (1:00 PM ET, CBS). Each of the AFC West rivals has played two games this season decided by four points or less. Close games are the culture in the NFL, so as the league enters Week 3, get ready for special players to seize the day.
 
A Rush Of Rookies Under Center
 
Six rookie quarterbacks – Chicago’s Justin Fields, New England’s Mac Jones, San Francisco’s Trey Lance, Jacksonville’s Trevor Lawrence, Houston’s Davis Mills and the New York Jets’ Zach Wilson – have attempted a pass this season, tied with 1971 (six) for the most rookie quarterbacks to attempt a pass in the first two weeks of a season since the league merger in 1970. Five of those rookies could start this week, which would make Week 3 of the 2021 season the second time in the Super Bowl era, excluding the strike-shortened 1987 season, in which five rookie quarterbacks started in the same week within the first three weeks of a season. It also happened in 2012.

AFC-NFC Championship Sunday

Maxwell Football Club Weekly Pro Football Update
Championship Weekend


Highlights of notable NFL performances for the week ending Jan. 17.

This weekend holds the key to the door of Super Bowl LV. The final four teams are set and this Sunday will determine the special two clubs that will head to Tampa Bay.

Championship Sunday begins with the NFC Championship Game, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13-5) travel to play the Green Bay Packers (14-3) for the George Halas Trophy at Lambeau Field (3:05 PM ET, FOX). The Buccaneers are appearing in their first Championship Game since the 2002 season, when they went on to win Super Bowl XXXVII, while the Packers are making their second consecutive appearance. The game features the quarterback with the most postseason wins in NFL history, Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady (32), against the franchise with the most world championships, Green Bay (13).

In the AFC on Sunday (6:40 PM ET, CBS), the top two seeds in the conference, the Buffalo Bills (15-3) and Kansas City Chiefs (15-2), face off at Arrowhead Stadium for the Lamar Hunt Trophy. Buffalo’s Josh Allen (24 years old) and Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes (25) could become just the second pair of opposing quarterbacks under the age of 26 to start a conference Championship Game, joining Vince Ferragamo (25 years old) of the Los Angeles Rams and Doug Williams (24) of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 1979 NFC title game.

The Bills are playing in the AFC Championship for the first time since the 1993 season, when they defeated the Chiefs to advance to Super Bowl XXVIII. Kansas City, meanwhile, is only the second team in NFL history to host three consecutive Championship Games, joining the 2002-04 Philadelphia Eagles, who were also led by head coach Andy Reid.

Maxwell Football Club Weekly Pro Football Update – Week 15
Highlights of notable NFL performances for the week ending Dec. 15.

The Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns stamped an exclamation point on a thrilling week in what has been a thrilling season of NFL football by carving their names next to a record that had stood undisturbed for 98 years.

Until Monday night, when Baltimore and Cleveland combined for nine rushing touchdowns, only a pair of 1922 games had ever included as many touchdowns on the ground.

Then, the Ravens and Browns decided the game in the air.

Lamar Jackson threw a 44-yard, fourth-down touchdown pass to Marquise Brown to give Baltimore a 42-35 lead with 1:51 remaining. Then, after Cleveland’s Kareem Hunt scored on a 22-yard pass from Baker Mayfield with 1:04 left, the Ravens’ Justin Tucker converted a 55-yard, game-winning field goal in the final seconds.

Was it the game of the year?

In a season stocked with game-of-the-year candidates, it may be. There are 48 games remaining to determine that in what has been a crazy season.

History Fuels Playoff Hopes

In each of the past 42 seasons (1977-2019, excluding 1982, when divisional play did not occur), at least one team has won its division the season after missing the playoffs. This week, with either a Cleveland loss on Sunday or a win on Monday Night Football at Cincinnati (8:15 PM ET, ESPN), the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2) can extend that streak.

Since 1990, at least four teams every season have qualified for the playoffs after failing to make the postseason the year before.

At least two teams have won their divisions the season after missing the playoffs in 16 of the past 17 years.

And in 15 of the past 17 seasons, at least one team finished in first place in its division the season after finishing in last or tied for last place. In fact, of the 48 teams in league history to go from “worst-to-first,” 25 of them have done so in the past 17 years (2003-19), including an NFL-record three such teams in 2005 and 2006. Two teams during that span, the 2009 New Orleans Saints and the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles, won the Super Bowl after finishing in last place in their divisions the season before.

Saturdays Are Special In December

The NFL kicks off its annual schedule of Saturday games this week when the Buffalo Bills (10-3) travel to play the Denver Broncos (5-8) at Empower Field at Mile High (4:30 PM ET, NFLN). In Game 2 of the doubleheader, the Carolina Panthers (4-9) are at the Green Bay Packers (10-3), who clinched the NFC North title last week, on Saturday night (8:15 PM ET, NFLN).

Bills quarterback Josh Allen ranks sixth in the NFL with a career-high 3,641 passing yards and could become just the second player in Buffalo history to reach 4,000 in a single season, joining Drew Bledsoe (4,359 passing yards in 2002).

Denver rookie wide receiver KJ Hamler caught two touchdowns in the team’s road win last week. Hamler is one of nine NFL rookies with at least three receiving touchdowns this season.

Green Bay wide receiver Davante Adams had seven receptions for 115 yards and one touchdown in the Packers’ Week 14 win. He has recorded a touchdown reception in eight consecutive games, tied for the third-longest streak within a single season in the Super Bowl era. Only Pro Football Hall of Famer Jerry Rice (12 games in 1987) and A.J. Green (nine games in 2012) have longer streaks. (more…)

Seahawks vs Eagles Odds, Preview and Predictions

November 27th, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, TSP Radio

Seahawks vs Eagles 2020


Well, the Eagles have a full plate this Thanksgiving week’s game against the Seahawks.  The game is being played on Monday Night Football this week with the (7-3) Seahawks vs (3-6-1) Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field at 8:15pm on ESPN.  As we all saw in the Cowboys vs Washington game, Washington rolled over the injury ridden Cowboys with a 41-16 win to take over first place from the Eagles with Washington’s 4-7 record.

The Eagles are going to have to pull every trick out of the hat and solid play on both sides of the ball to pull away with a victory in order to regain 1st place in the NFC East.  This is a mighty task and the odds are not in the Eagles favor.  The odds show that the Eagles are 5-point underdogs against the Seahawks and I believe they are even bigger underdogs than that with the quality of play we saw last week.

Eagles vs Browns Preview and Prediction 2020

November 22nd, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, TSP Radio


This week the Eagles face a much improved Cleveland Browns team holding a 6-3 record in a much tougher division than the Eagles.  As we saw last game against the Giants, the Eagles fell flat on their face with an ugly 27-17 loss.  Now the Eagles head into Cleveland with a 3-5-1 record and still in first place in the horrid NFC East.

Once again, within the horrid NFC East, even if the Eagles lose again this week, they will still hold 1st in the Division because it’s the Giants bye week this week.  With Dallas and Washington at 2-7, even if they win and Eagles lose, the Eagles still hold 1st place.

Here is a listing of the Eagles injury report for the Browns game:

Eagles dominate NFL East as they meet the undefeated Steelers

October 11th, 2020 by Leo | No Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, TalkSportsPhilly

Yes, I know the headline is a bit off if you have been watching the Eagles season in 2020.  Somehow with their first win this year against San Francisco, it lifted the Eagles to 1st place in the Division with a 1-2-1 record.  The Steelers are 3-0 and looking strong with Big Ben still at the helm.

The Eagles have to bring their A-game if they stand a chance of beating the Steelers in Pittsburgh.  If the Offensive line can’t stop the Steelers from sacking Wentz, it looks to be a long day for the Eagles.  Everyone has to step up and the Eagles have to produce a few turnovers if there is a prayer to win.

Here is some of the stats and injuries on today’s game…
