The NFL action continued for Week Four! The Las Vegas Raiders got their first win. Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen had the game of two MVP front runners. The Philadelphia Eagles remain undefeated. But did these games end up as the top ones of the week? TWSN NFL analysts Marissa Myers, Logan Fulmer, Isaac Nelson, Matt Levine, and Andrew Little give the top five games of the week.


Seattle Seahawks @ Detroit Lions 

Okay, who had the battle of Geno Smith and Jared Goff pegged as the game that would have the most offensive production? Because that is exactly what happened. It was a game that came down to the wire as both offenses were clicking. The opening drive, the Seahawks got the ball and Will Dissly scored a 17-yard touchdown. The score was set up by a 17-yard scramble by Geno Smith followed by a 15-yard pass from Smith to Colby Parkinson. The Lions got on the board thanks to Malcolm Rodriguez forcing a fumble on the punt. This led to the Lions being in Seattle territory for Jared Goff to throw a 32-yard strike to T.J. Hockenson for the touchdown. After this, the next five total consecutive drives would result in scores. Smith finished the day completing 23-of-30 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns. The Seahawks run game also got going as Rashaad Penny had 151 yards and two touchdowns. For Goff, he finished 26-of-39 for 378 yards and four touchdowns. The Lions rushing attack was led by Jamaal Williams with 108 yards and two touchdowns. It was a game that saw over 1,000 yards of offense and a score of 48-45 as the Seahawks squeaked out the victory. (Marissa)


New York Jets @ Pittsburgh Steelers 

Coming into this week, this game didn’t have much excitement around it, but it definitely ended with some. The story line was Zach Wilson making his season debut, and he started it with a touchdown CATCH on a Philly Special to give the Jets an early lead. The first half was not good on the eyes as both offenses struggled. Coming out of halftime, things were different, especially for the Steelers as Kenny Pickett was named QB1 for the second half. Things were not pretty as his first passing attempt was an interception, giving the ball to the Jets. Fortunately for Pittsburgh, Zach Wilson was in a giving mood of his own as he threw an interception that led to a Pickett quarterback sneak into the end zone, giving them the lead 13-10. The fourth quarter would start the same way, with Pickett running in for a touchdown, increasing the lead to 10 points. From this point Wilson looked like the guy everyone thought he would become, he led a quick scoring drive, cutting the lead to three as he found Corey Davis. The Steelers needed a drive and Pickett was looking to ice the game. Unfortunately, that was not the case as he would throw his second interception, giving the ball to the Jets with a chance to win the game. Wilson would lead a game winning drive, giving Jets fans a ton of hope. In his last two drives, Wilson was 11-of-14 with 128 Yards and one touchdown. Kenny Pickett’s debut was not the best as he ended 10-of-13, but all of his incompletions were interceptions. (Logan)

Cleveland Browns @ Atlanta Falcons 

This was a back-and-forth game through and through. The Falcons jumped out to an early lead, only for the Browns to come back. The teams traded field goals and the lead all throughout. It was an entertaining game as we watched Marcus Mariota and Jacoby Brissett compete. Atlanta pulled out the victory by a score of 23-20 and earned a much-needed win. The Falcons have competed in every game this season and are better than their record has shown. This is a gritty team and even playing a Cleveland squad missing some players, it was a nice win for this Atlanta franchise. Cleveland couldn’t match on their final drive, and it resulted in a disappointing loss for the Browns. Fun game and one that fans should go back and rewatch. (Matt) 


Miami Dolphins @ Cincinnati Bengals 

The Dolphins traveled to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals to open up Week Four. Miami was coming in undefeated after beating the Buffalo Bills, while the Bengals looked to continue to bounce back from their 0-2 start. The Bengals did just that as they came out firing on their opening drive with a touchdown courtesy of Joe Mixon, and a great push by the offensive line for Cincinnati. They say bend don’t break, and the Bengals defense did just that on the next drive and all throughout the game. The Dolphins quickly drove down the field, but were held to a field goal. The next few drives for each team dwindled, as quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was intercepted by safety Vonn Bell, the Bengals punted and then turned it over on downs following the interception, and then the Dolphins made a field goal, with another being blocked. The game was then close, but Cincinnati had a breakaway play as Tee Higgins ran a good length of the field for a touchdown. Before the half ended, however, Tagovailoa went down with a scary head injury. Teddy Bridgewater came in to finish the touchdown drive before the half. It was a very slow and forgettable start to the second half for each team, but at the end of the third quarter, Miami kicked a field goal to take the lead. The Bengals marched right back for a field goal of their own. They were then able to intercept a pass from Bridgewater to take the ball and score a touchdown to all but ice the game. The Bengals won at home 27-15 to defeat the undefeated Dolphins and improve to 2-2. (Isaac)


Minnesota Vikings @ New Orleans Saints (London)

The first London game of the season was a thriller. The New Orleans Saints entered the game without several top playmakers, including starting quarterback Jameis Winston, running back Alvin Kamara, and wide receiver Michael Thomas. Veteran Andy Dalton filled in valiantly for Winston throwing for over 200 yards and a touchdown. Chris Olave added to his terrific start to the season with his first career touchdown. Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson bounced back after two underwhelming performances with a 10 catch, 147-yard performance. Wil Lutz hit a game-tying 60-yard field goal just before the two-minute warning. Greg Joseph matched him with a 47-yard one to take a 28-25 lead. The Saints had under 30 seconds to score, but were able to get into field goal range. Lutz came within inches of kicking a career-long 61 yards, but a double-doink prevented the game from reaching overtime. The game was a preview to a day full of games decided by field goals.
