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:
Miami Dolphins at Kansas City Chiefs
Atlanta Falcons at Indianapolis Colts
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints
New York Jets at Buffalo Bills
Seattle Seahawks at Dallas Cowboys
Cleveland Browns at Houston Texans
San Francisco 49ers at Washington Redskins
Cincinnati Bengals at Tennessee Titans
Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders
New York Giants at New England Patriots
St. Louis Rams at Arizona Cardinals
Green Bay Packers at San Diego Chargers
Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers
Chicago Bears at Philadelphia Eagles
We also go into greater detail on a few issues: Just how good has Bills DT Marcell Dareus been? Why are defenses playing more man coverage, and why does that put the Patriots at a specific disadvantage? Why has the Titans' defense regressed? Why were the Eagles able to take apart Dallas' defense with their advanced blocking concepts? What kind of specific challenges does Matt Forte present to the Eagles' defense? Greg and I also go off on a bit of a tangent about quarterback mechanics, and why Tim Tebow is very much behind the 8-ball from that perspective.
Also, Greg has some really depressing news for fans of the Miami Dolphins.
