Jeff Bezos is the founder, president, and CEO of the ever-popular website Amazon.com, and he wants to go shopping.

He is looking for his next big purchase and his eyes are locked in on an NFL team. Bezos, whose net worth is $112 billion dollars, looks to position himself as the richest owner in the NFL.

There are only a handful of NFL teams that are up for sale, but as we all know from a business perspective, money talks and essentially everything is for sale. The question is, which of the 32 teams are most likely to be on Bezos’ hit list?

AFC South takes an unexpected turn

Lisa Johnson
AFC South AFC East Reporter

By Lisa Johnson // @lj1303 

Heading into week 10, with the Texans and Jaguars on byes, the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts looked to try and gain ground on division-leading Houston Texans.

The Titans opened up week 10 against the Kanas City Chiefs, which saw the return of Chiefs MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

And he looked every part of that during the opening drive, going 6 of 8 and hitting tight end Travis Kelce for a 3-yard touchdown pass. While the Chiefs offense and Maholmes got off to a great start, the Chiefs defense struggled with the Titans ground and pound run game.

Is Belichick the greatest coach of all time? Absolutely and definitely not.

About Stats Guy and Blitzed: Stats Guy is the host of the hit show Blitzed, where three fans talk NFL and rate popular drinks at the same time. Blitzed airs LIVE on Twitter and YouTube every Monday evening at 8 pm ET.

If you’ve ever seen our show, Blitzed, we don’t make much of a secret that we don’t like the Patriots. Heck, we even have a segment called Why We Hate Tom Brady. And every year we get asked by tens of fans around the country just why we hate them so much.

It would be easy to say we loathe them because of Spygate, or Deflategate or Spa-gate, the arrogance of their fans or the fact that they never show mercy to their opponents. They never take their foot off a team’s throat, even when they’re up 35 in the 4th quarter. Continue reading “Is Belichick the greatest coach of all time? Absolutely and definitely not.”

Chargers vs Raiders – more than just a win at stake.

NFC West / AFC West

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

The Los Angeles Chargers (4-5) took a short trip up the coast to face the Oakland Raiders (4-4) for Thursday Night Football. While both teams will tell you that it is just another game, the loser of this match up faces a serious uphill climb to stay in the playoff race.

These teams know each other well. The divisional match up has brought Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers to more times than we care to count, but this is a different Raiders team. While the Chargers have struggled this year, this game was going to be a test for the normally dominant Chargers.

By Kate Arhar // @ClvlndK8 

Week 10 is here and – WOW – it’s been a weird season for the NFC South!

Quarterback issues…. coaching issues…. injury issues… you name it, they’ve seen it.

Now that the teams have all had their Bye Week, the rest of the season is going to break down into two battles: First Place in the Division or Top Five Pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

This week brings us a division match-up between the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons which will impact both of those battles!

Franchise QBs on their way out? The quarterback carousel begins early.

Lisa Johnson
AFC South AFC East Reporter

By Lisa Johnson // @LJ1303 

We are at the mid-season mark and already we have teams talking about moving on from their supposed franchise quarterbacks.

Let’s take a look at who may be leaving their quarterbacks behind.

Carolina Panthers placed Cam Newton on season-ending injured reserve this week, leaving many to question if we will ever see Newton in a Panthers uniform again., especially since they have quarterback Kyle Allen, an undrafted free agent who has played well for Carolina in relief of Newton. He has completed 60.7 % of his passes for 1,291 yards with nine touchdowns and four interceptions in six games.

The Panthers have gone 5-1 in the games in which Allen has started.

Black cat takes over Twitter on Monday Night Football

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

I think the only thing better would have been if this game had been played on Halloween.

When there were about 5 1/2 minutes left in the first half of the Cowboys/Giants game on Monday Night Football, a black cat somehow got on the field.  And true to the app we know and love, Twitter took it and ran with it. Most of the time, I’m OK when things like this happen, but for whatever reason, I thought it was a little too much.

But then I decided I was being a Debbie Downer, and went and sat in the corner.  Not really, I just thought to myself let people have their fun.  It’s not hurting anyone.

The NFC North: Should we sound the alarm?

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

I know. You can’t win them all. But this past Sunday, the NFC North laid an egg.  All 4 teams went on the road, and all 4 teams lost their games. Sometimes it’s hard to win on the road in the NFL.

But should we start to sound the alarm? And by alarm, I mean, should we start panicking that the team is heading for disaster and this season is totally shot?  Well, lets head around the division and see what we find.

The true NFC West rivalry returns

Dayna O’Gorman
Senior NFL Reporter

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

The NFC West is a very competitive division almost every year. While the top spot switches regularly, its usually true that there is a heated battle every year for that spot. This breeds strong rivalries between the teams, but there is one rivalry that has been the most fierce. Seattle and San Francisco.

While the Los Angeles Rams and the Arizona Cardinals have done their fair share of winning within the division, it hasn’t fostered the same level of disdain that the Seahawks and 49ers have for each other. Fanbases, teams, front offices…it goes deep. And come next Monday night, the rivalry will again be on full display for everyone to see when these teams face each other on Monday Night Football.
