Well folks the NFL welcomed 7 new Head Coaches to the league and they all went home on the short end of the stick. Seven disappointing debuts and for a few, that same experience will be the norm every Sunday night as they walk off the field.
You have to feel bad for Titans HC Mike Vrabel, who had to endure 2 delays and 7 plus hours before the game was decided. Now he has a mess on his hands with Mariota already injured. I am not a Mariota fan at all, but facing this one week in for a new HC trying to get some things in motion is just terrible news for Vrabel.

If they win Thursday, that makes HC John Harbough's team perfect for three straight years. That's one heckuva job.
The Ravens are one of my "NFL SLEEPER TEAMS" for 2018. I really love this Defense as everyone returns and I feel QB Flacco is fully healthy and what was once one of the leaguest weakest Wide Receiver/Tight End groups, is now actually very formidable. With one of the leagues best Kickers as well, this team now finally healthy across the board should be one of the teams making some big noise in the ...
