With so much parity across the NFL, who emerges as top teams?
October 17 2017
NFL analyst Danny Kelly with TheRinger.com joins Sat Shah and Jawn Jang on The Playbook to unpack MNF and set up Week 7. It's difficult to identify the team that will emerge because there is so much parity across the league. "More teams are good this year than normal." The Titans are built to win but he can't necessarily pick them for a playoff run. The Eagles and Carson Wentz, by contrast, look strong and have a dominant front seven. He also talks Sam Bradford and the Vikings, Big Ben with the Steelers, and more.
