1. The Chiefs Dismantle the Ravens
The main headline of Week 4 NFL Football action was the Monday Night Football game which featured the #1 Baltimore Ravens hosting the #2 Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs dominated the Ravens. Kansas City’s offense was firing on all cylinders, while the Ravens offense could not seem to get anything going. Patrick Mahomes threw for 385 yards and 4 touchdowns, all while managing a 73.8% completion percentage. After a lackluster performance with the Chargers in week 2, the Chiefs proved something in week 3. KC 34- 20 BAL

2. Are the New Orleans Saints in Trouble?
After losing for the second consecutive week, the New Orleans Saints fall to 1-2, winning in week 1 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, then falling short to the Las Vegas Raiders and the Green Bay Packers. With losses to the #12 Las Vegas Raiders and the #4 Green Bay Packers, the Saints should not be counted out quite yet. However, if they fall short in their upcoming 3 games, which consist of the #25 Detroit Lions, #16 Los Angeles Chargers, and #26 Carolina Panthers, then we may have to begin worrying about Drew Brees, Sean Payton, and New Orleans’ Front Office.
3. The Undefeateds
…And then there were 7: Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers, Tennessee Titans, Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Chicago Bears. The biggest surprise here: The Chicago Bears. While they have not faced a big test yet, the Bears are unbeaten, even after all that is going on at the quarterback spot there. After Mitchell Trubiski left the game Sunday, Nick Foles stepped in and essentially took his job. Not much surprise with the Kansas City Chiefs. The rest had a chance of starting the season off on a good note coming into the season.
