The Lions' offense is averaging 35 points per game, the most in the NFL. (But the defense cannot stop anyone.)
The Saints' defense remains Super Bowl Bowl-caliber. (But is mangled to bits on offense.)
And what about those Pittsburgh Steelers? They may look back at Oct. 2 as a brutal, yet necessary step toward winning once again.
As always, we wrap up the NFL action here on the podcast with co-host Jim Monos. In addition to these three 1-3 clubs, there's plenty of Green Bay Packers' talk. It was ugly vs. Bill Belichick's Patriots but this felt like a W for the receiving corps more than anything. We explain.
Also, there's plenty of concussion talk out of this Tua Tagovailoa situation. Can we trust the NFL and NFLPA to do the right thing?
