1. Cowboys win fifth straight– They were hot coming into this game and they knew this would be a challenge coming into Green Bay where they’ve been known to struggle at Lambeau. That wasn’t the case on Sunday. Dak Prescott continued his great start to his rookie season and Ezekiel Elliott had a big game against the top rated run defense coming into the game. The Packers problems continued once again as they couldn’t get anything going offensively and they struggled to stop anything with their defense. Dallas is now 5-1 and in first place in the NFC East.
2. Clemson survives North Carolina State– This year’s Clemson team reminds me so much of last year’s Ohio State team. They haven’t lost a game yet, but they haven’t looked great at times either just like that Buckeyes team last year. Saturday, they got a very tough fight from North Carolina State and Clemson’s offense was held under 30 points which shocked me because they can score at will on anyone at anytime. That wasn’t the case on Saturday and it looked as if the Wolf Pack was about to pull a major upset and the potential game-winning kick was no good. Overtime was needed and Clemson scored and then forced a turnover to win the game.
3. Ohio State holds on in Madison– What more could you want? Number against Number 8 on a Saturday night? Wisconsin started out on a roll and Ohio State struggled to get much of anything going. The second half was different. JT Barrett had a much better game throwing the ball this time and made some key passes when his team needed it. Despite the fact that Wisconsin lost, I’ve been impressed with them. They handled Michigan State, held Michigan to under 20 points and gave Ohio State a true test.
4. Odell has a big day– Ever since he said he wouldn’t let his emotions get the best of him, he’s played better and Sunday against the Ravens, he had the best game of his career. He recorded his first 200-yard receiving game and actually finished with 222 yards receiving. His game propelled the Giants to snap their three-game losing streak with a win over the Ravens.
5. Dolphins upset Steelers– The one thing about this game is that anyone can beat anybody on any given Sunday. The Steelers were by far the favorites to win this game. Ben, unfortunately, got hurt and missed the rest of the game. You see how much his presence has on the field and the Steelers chances of making the Super Bowl ride on the health of Ben Roethlisberger. Jay Ajayi had a career day rushing the football for the Dolphins and the Phins got their biggest win of the season over the Steelers.
