Three games into the season, the true colors of the 32 teams in the NFL are starting to show.
As we have seen in recent years, it’s not how you start but how you finish. Fourteen games into the last two seasons, the Packers were 8-6 in 2010 and the Giants a mere 7-7 in 2011. But both got hot at the right time, and each team would go on to grab its fourth Super Bowl trophy.
This season should be no different: We may think we know who’s headed where, but all it takes is a few losses in a row to derail any such plans.
So here we are with this week’s edition of SAT results. Keep in mind that these grades are based on a number of factors, not just numbers. And they are indeed grades for this week’s performance, not the season to date. We’re sure to cover the latter somewhere down the road.
Of course, following Monday night's finish in Seattle, it's safe to say that final moments of that game will be evaluated for quite some time.
But back to the task at hand. And if your favorite team wasn’t up to snuff this week, there’s no detention—although banging erasers might be an alternative.
