The NFL can indeed be a kind place. Amidst all the heavy hitting, there are some stories of redemption to highlight in week 4.
There is a great deal to be thankful for if you are a fan of one of the following teams. Patience has been a necessary virtue for fans of these NFL squads.
After years of inept play, they are finally getting some well-earned wins. The hits will continue to come in week 4 for the unlikely heroes of 2011.
I have been weighing whether I can truly take the Texans defense over the Steelers. I may have to call it a draw as far as that matchup. However, I know the Texans offensive line is loads better. The Steelers still have some things to work out, and Houston will benefit.
The Lions have been far too crisp in their passing game to lose to a still very banged up team. The Cowboys have showed a lot of heart in the first three weeks. However, the only thing heart will get you is a win over the Redskins.
This is my lock of the week. There hasn't been a better story that the Buffalo Bills this year. Stuck in the doldrums for what seems like eons, the Bills have put together a team of hard workers and no names.
This is the kind of team that will never take a play, let alone a game, off. The Bengals are in store for a hurting on Sunday.
