5 Eli Manning’s O-Line
The Giants have two incredible weapons in Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr, but they also have a porous offensive line that is giving Eli Manning – never the most mobile guy on the planet – no time at all.

3 Problems In Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh is one of the NFL’s most storied – and stable – franchises.

Brown’s agent quickly dismissed the tweet as a ‘reply to someone he knows’ but whether or not it was serious, there are still major issues as Mike Tomlin prepares his troops for a trick visit to surprising Tampa Bay.
There were no ties in the 2017 season, but two in the first two weeks of 2018…and people aren’t happy.

Fans and critics are suddenly clamouring for the NFL to change its overtime to the college system – which guarantees a winner – but the reality is poor coaching, poor officiating and poor kicking (see #1) are to blame.
A total of 19 kicks were missed in Week 2, with two placekickers losing their jobs. The Vikings cut Daniel Carlson – who they used a fifth round draft pick on – after he missed three field goals, while the Browns axed Zane Gonzalez, who missed two field goals and two extra points.
