Monday Tidbits - Week 8

Changing the format of this thing a bit cause this week just played out the strangeness of the NFL. Here are some random thoughts on the parity, and the craziness, we're seeing.

- The Oakland Raiders, a combined 31-87 their past 118 prior games, have just won two games in a row on the road by a combined score of 92-17. I don't particularly care if those two games were against the two worst teams in the NFL (and the Seahawks, while not great, are certainly not in that category). If you're beating two teams on the road 92-17, you're not a bad football team.

- The Miami Dolphins are 4-0 on the road and 0-3 at home.

- The 0-7 Bills have gone on the road and taken two 2-loss teams to overtime in consecutive weeks.

- The Bucs and Seahawks are a combined 9-5, but have been outscored by their opponents by a combined 44 points.

- The Lions and Chargers are a combined 5-10, but have outscored their opponents by a combined 54 points.

- Three teams that had draft picks in the top six in April are leading or tied for the lead in their divisions.

- Five division winners from last year are currently third or fourth in their divisions right now.

- Two days ago the consensus "best teams in the NFL" (according to most pundits) just lost yesterday by a combined 29-10.

- There is only a single team with less than two losses and only three teams with less than two wins.

Strap in folks, it's gonna be a wild ride in the second half of the season!
