Minnesota's biggest problems this season have been a failure to cover running backs and prevent explosive pass plays -- which sounds like bad news for this weekend's game against Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara, and the Saints.
It's not just Baker Mayfield. Derrik Klassen shows how Cleveland's young stars along the defensive line and throughout the secondary have turned the Browns from a joke of a franchise to a team to be reckoned with.

Our projections had the Cowboys as one of the top playoff contenders in the NFC. Through three games, our projections have been very wrong. Derrik Klassen explains how this can be blamed on both the personnel and the coaching staff, but most of all on the quarterback.

Malik Jackson and his teammates had a great game against New England, pressuring Tom Brady, limiting the damage the Patriots could do on big plays, and making Rob Gronkowski a non-factor. That doesn't mean that they'll be able to do the same thing should the teams meet again in the playoffs.

Over at TwoQBs.com, our film guy Derrik Klassen is writing a series looking at this year's five first-round quarterbacks and how they fit the schemes of their new teams. You'll find a number of film clips comparing these quarterbacks' college schemes to the schemes of their new offensive coordinators in the pros. We'll post more of the links here as they are posted on TwoQBs.com.
