So much for the best weekend in football... two boring snoozefests so far.  Vikings never led and game one was over with 4 minutes left in the third.   Ravens' turnovers and sloppy play killed them.  Lamar Jackson's career best but strangely ineffective 365 passing yards (on 59 attempts...think they fell behind?) plus 143 on the ground (his 2nd best all-time) only netted 12 points.  Hopefully things get on track today.

Ravens-Titans

The winning QB had 88 yards passing.  The losing QB, 365.  That's AFCN football, though.  I think Ben Roethlisberger's three "best" passing performances were in losses.

59 attempts is never a good sign.  Titans have a much more balanced attack with opposing D's forced to respect Henry which opens up the passing lanes for Tannehill, who has taken full advantage.  According to Graham Barfield of NFL.com Henry has the second highest number of yards ever tallied by a running back over his last eight games in the HISTORY OF THE LEAGUE behind only Adrian Peterson's amazing 2012 MVP stretch.  Better than Jim Brown, Walter Payton, OJ Simpson or Barry Sanders.  Physical RBs like Henry tend to break down faster but while they are in that groove, they can be real game changers.
