We're back with another weekly podcast featuring our favorite X's-and-O's analyst — Greg Cosell, the longtime NFL Films maven, who's also the executive producer of ESPN's "NFL Matchup." As always, we go through this week's upcoming games with a scout's eye and Greg in control of the All-22 tape.
Here are the matchups we're discussing in order this week:
Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers
Arizona Cardinals at Philadelphia Eagles
Tennessee Titans at Carolina Panthers
Houston Texans at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Washington Redskins at Miami Dolphins
Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts
Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs
Buffalo Bills at Dallas Cowboys
New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons
St. Louis Rams at Cleveland Browns
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals
Baltimore Ravens at Seattle Seahawks
New York Giants at San Francisco 49ers
Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears
New England Patriots at New York Jets
Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers
We also discuss other aspects of the current season in more detail — how were the Raiders so unprepared for the Tim Tebow option game, and how can the Broncos advance the concept going forward? In what ways are the 49ers' run game concepts far more diverse and interesting than you might think? How do great quarterbacks make their receivers look better with timing and anticipation? Why has the Titans' defense gone downhill, and why is the Bears' defense less about boring old Cover-2 than some imagine? And how in the name of Larry Csonka did the Dolphins wax the Chiefs?
It's always a must-listen when Greg Cosell talks football, so check it out!
