Seahawks acquire Lynch; Week 4 in review

Seahawks acquire Lynch

Marshawn Lynch was traded to the Seahawks today. The Bills will receive two future draft picks in exchange.

To make room for Lynch, the Seahawks cut RB Julius Jones.

Lynch goes from the worst team in the league to a team, that is also struggling, has a chance at winning their division.

Lynch only gained 164 yards rushing on 37 carries this year, with no touchdowns.

Week 4 in review

The week 4 “must-see” game of the week certainly lived up to the hype. The Ravens beat the Steelers, 17-14, in Pittsburgh. The game had few turnovers, dramatic late-game scoring and, of course, crushing hits.

The winning play happened with 32 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, as Joe Flacco hit T.J. Houshmanzadeh on an 18-yard TD in the back of the end zone. The route Houshmanzadeh ran wasn’t planned–he saw the defensive back cheating outside, and re-routed to the inside where Flacco led him perfectly.

My picks against the spread were slightly better this week, with my over/under picks slipping a bit. Once again, those specials picks treated me well.

Although I admit I thought New Orleans would get an easy victory at home, after a bad loss the week before.

Thank goodness for John Carney.

Picks against the spread:

8-6 (29-30-3 overall)

Over/under picks:

8-6 (36-25-1 overall)

Specials:

3-0 (9-3 overall)

Many players played well and compiled big stats this week, especially defensive players. So believe me, these selections weren’t easy.

Offensive player of the week: Arian Foster, RB, HOU

  • 16 carries, 131 yards, 1 TD; 3 receptions, 56 yards, 1 TD

Defensive player of the week: Shaun Phillips, LB, SD

  • 6 tackles (5 solo), 4 sacks, 4 tfl, 2 passes defensed, 1 INT (31 yd. TD)

Highlight of the week: Taylor Mays tippy-toe touchdown

As for a Week 5 preview, I’m thinking that it’s a lock that there will be no more undefeated teams after this week.

That’s all for now. Thanks for reading.
