The Monday Minute™️ is a simple concept - I share one thought about each team who played on Sunday. Some good, some bad. Some serious, some goofy. Grab your coffee and get the week started!
Let's start with the AFC...
Baltimore Ravens - Feels like the year Lamar gets over that playoff hump.
Buffalo Bills - Of course the Bills host a playoff game for the first time since before the internet existed, and we don’t get the full Bills Mafia experience. Thanks, Rona.
Cincinnati Bengals - For the love of God, rebuild that line this offseason and protect Joe Burrow.
Cleveland Browns - Baker Mayfield still STINKS, and I can’t wait until he isn’t enough to get the job done in the postseason.
Denver Broncos - Time for John Elway to finally find his franchise QB this offseason … for the fourth time.
Houston Texans - Keep Watt and Watson. Blow the rest up.
Indianapolis Colts - Jonathan Taylor is a baaaaaaaadddddd man.
Jacksonville Jaguars - Someone tell Urban Meyer Florida is lovely this time of year.
Kansas City Chiefs - Still pretty good.
Las Vegas Radiers - United States politicians are the only ones stealing more money than Jon Gruden.
LA Chargers - Protect Justin Herbert at all costs.
Miami Dolphins - Brian Flores in the guy. The question is, is Tua?
New England Patriots - Enjoy the postseason from the comforts of your home!
New York Jets - Still pretty bad.
Pittsburgh Steelers - Are the Steelers for real? Six weeks later, we might finally get our answer.
Tennessee Titans - The career turnaround of Ryan Tannehill is a Music City Miracle.
And now, the NFC...
Arizona Cardinals - DeAndre Hopkins got a personal foul flag for giving an official the middle finger … so that’s not allowed? Okay, at least we know going forward.
Atlanta Falcons - Eric Bieniemy, come on down!
Carolina Panthers - Matt Rhule looks like the right guy for the job. Now it’s time to hit on some draft picks.
Chicago Bears - For the love of God, get away from Mitch and Nick this offseason.
Dallas Cowboys - Pay Dak the ransom he deserves, cowards.
Detroit Lions - Let Matt Stafford go elsewhere and compete, it’s the least you can do.
Green Bay Packers - Maybe you should draft a QB in the 1st round every year if this is the Aaron Rodgers you get afterwards.
LA Rams - Jared Goff ain’t it.
Minnesota Vikings - Kirk Cousins also ain’t it. But Justin Jefferson is.
New Orleans - Who would have thought that Drew Brees would be the weak link on this roster? But here we are.
New York Giants - You know what's more embarrassing that what the Eagles did last night? A 6 win team crying about how it wasn’t fair.
Philadelphia Eagles - When the Eagles won the Super Bowl in 2018, Doug Pederson told fans to get used to this, and that playing into February was “the new normal” for the Eagles organization. I guess the new normal now is tanking in January?
San Francisco 49ers - Plenty of Pedialyte and a nice summer vacation should be enough to finally shake that Super Bowl hangover in 2021.
Seattle Seahawks - It’s not the Legion of Boom, but with this defense and Russ, Seattle will have a shot.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Good luck when you finally get outside of a dome or sunny Florida.
Washington Football Team - Give Chase Young a lifetime contract.
