NFL Week: 8

Jesse Gonzales, Reporter

In week 8 of the NFL season, there was plenty of crazy and exciting games. The week seemed to be one the best to date.

To start off the week there was a Thursday Night matchup between the Ravens and the Dolphins. This game was interesting in the beginning when looking forward to it, but that soon did change. Right off the bat, the Ravens came out strong with their defense. The defense was so good that they were able to hold Miami scoreless the whole game. To end the game, the score was a surprising 40-0.

Next, on Sunday, the game between the Texans and the Seahawks might have been the game of the year easily. It seemed that no matter what Deshaun Watson and the Texans did, Russell Wilson and the Seahawks had an answer. Both quarterbacks had monster games, but it ended up with a Seahawks close win. Russell Wilson went for 452 yards and 4 TD’s, while rookie Deshaun Watson went for 402 yards and 4 TD’s. The game score 41-38, Seahawks.

On Monday Night Football, it was a divisional show down between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos. This was a very good game because the Chiefs have one of the best offenses and the Broncos have arguably the best defense. In the first half, the teams were going back and forth, but Kansas City seemed to show how much better they were even though they were not up by much. After coming out in the second half, the Chiefs pulled away with the lead and never looked back after that. They ended up winning, 29-19.

This is what happened week 8 of the NFL season.
