The first quarter of the NFL has come and gone, and your team probably sucks. Here are my top 5 plays from Week 4, that did not suck.
nick chubb smoked the ravens for 88 yards -
The Cleveland Browns needed this win as bad as anybody. Nick Chubb's run gave the Browns a 17-10 lead in the third, and this was the nail in the coffin for the Ravens' defense, who had just a terrible day. And of course I picked the one with Celine Dion.
Gardner minshew showed (again) that he means business -
It figures this is how the Jacksonville Jaguars find their quarterback -- by accident.
cmc's crazy catch -
I can't think of many other players that can do this, and do it well. Cam Newton may be down for the count right now, but with Christian McCaffrey on the field, they'll always have somewhat of a chance, right?
Matt Stafford had himself a day -
I have, admittedly, been on the Kenny Golladay train for a while, and this is why.
let yourself go into the light -
Just let yourself do it.
It's fine to say the Cleveland Browns, and more specifically, Baker Mayfield, didn't live up to their hype the first three weeks of the season. But that wasn't exactly true come Week Four.
Love em or hate em, the Browns came into Baltimore and put up 40 points. That's just a fact. Baltimore historically has always been a tough team to play at home, and also always has seemed to have the upper hand when it comes to the AFC North. I'm not saying the Browns are a complete lock to win said division, but it sure gives them hope. That offense that was talked about so loudly for the entire summer, seems to have clicked.
Highly touted Mayfield threw for almost 350 yards and was able to utilize Nick Chubb and Jarvis Landry better than he's had all season thus far. Odell Beckham Jr. was pretty much shut down by Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey, so he didn't have much of a stat sheet -- and it didn't matter. The ability to put up 40 without the help of a player like Beckham is an honor itself.
Not that the Ravens aren't a good defense (jury is still out), but Cleveland has some great defenses on their schedule in the next few weeks, and this is a good start to get back on track and keep it rolling.
Getting into the swing of things with Monday Night Football, then two nights off, and then starting all over with Thursday Night Football is touch, especially with the double-header on Monday. Anywho, both the Carolina Panthers and the Tampa Bay Bucs game into TNF without a win, and the first one to get it was the

This was everything I wanted and more. I feel like I'm signing that Kelly Clarkson song "A Moment Like This." Go listen to it.
Monday night preview
We waited so long for this and this is what we got. In a nutshell, Thursday night's NFL Kickoff was boring as hell, starting with the Meghan Trainor pump-up session to Cris Collinsworth harping about how Aaron Rodgers didn't play in the preseason every three seconds. And I seem to have forgotten how there are 700 commercials per minute.
Green Bay ended up beating the Bears 10-3. No seriously, that was the score.
