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:
Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers
Kansas City Chiefs at New York Jets
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Jacksonville Jaguars
New England Patriots at Washington Redskins
Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers
Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens
Philadelphia Eagles at Miami Dolphins
Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Tigers
New Orleans Saints at Tennessee Titans
Houston Texans at Cincinnati Bengals
Chicago Bears at Denver Broncos
San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals
Buffalo Bills at San Diego Chargers
Oakland Raiders at Green Bay Packers
New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys
St. Louis Rams at Seattle Seahawks
We also discuss a few more issues in depth: How are the Browns using their defensive tackles, why did the Steelers get conservative with their passing game last Thursday, why was Ray Rice able to run through lanes the size of highways last week, what does Drew Brees do better than anybody else in the NFL, why are the 49ers' running game concepts so interesting, and what's the hidden aspect of Houston's defense that makes it so strong?
