Week 4 of the NFL season was one to remember. The 49ers absolutely steamrolled an injury- and inept-quarterback-prone Jets team despite having to travel cross-country for the game. The surprising Arizona Cardinals took care of business against the Eagles to remain unbeaten. The Patriots looked shaky in the first half but righted the ship and destroyed a hopeful Bills team with 31 4th quarter points; a Bills team that Kevin maintains was “built to beat the Pats.” The Raiders were, well … The Raiders were the Raiders and got their asses handed to them by Denver. And the Packers. Ohhhh, Packers. You are going to drive Kevin to the bottle if you keep this up.
All in all, it was a great week of NFL football. It was also one that saw a new champion emerge among us Couchletes. With the help of some picks that seemed straight up illogical at the time of publishing, Rahul took this week with 14 of 15 correct picks. Despite this momentary burst of brilliance, Ryan snatched the overall lead with a total of 20 out of 31 correct picks. Don’t hate, Rahul.
With that, I think we all agree that we’re looking forward to Week 5 where the slimmest of margins will likely produce yet another weekly winner. It was tough to pick against the favorites this week but as they say, any given Sunday.
