Published

The Chicago Bears and the Los Angeles Rams will face off at 8:20 p.m. ET Sept. 12 at SoFi Stadium to kick off their 2021 seasons. Chicago is coming off of an 8-8 season with hopes of advancing further than the first round of the playoffs, where they were eliminated by the New Orleans Saints 21-9. Los Angeles advanced one round further, losing to the Green Bay Packers 32-18 in the second round of the playoffs.

Two defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Bears were second best in rushing touchdowns allowed, finishing the 2020 season giving up only 11. As for Los Angeles, they ranked first in the NFL in touchdowns allowed, closing the year allowing only 29 overall.

The Chicago sideline is surely aware that they’re the underdogs in this one. We’ll soon see whether they can make the experts look bad.

Atlanta Falcons: TE Kyle Pitts

Kyle Pitts became the highest-drafted tight end in NFL history when the Atlanta Falcons selected him with this year’s fourth overall pick. Pitts exploded Sunday with a nine-catch performance for 119 yards and the first touchdown of his career against the New York Jets.

“We all know what Kyle can do,” teammate Cordarrelle Patterson told reporters afterward. “[Head coach Arthur Smith] always says he expects stuff like that from Kyle, and we do, too. … He’s got every asset. He’s got good speed, hands, routes.”

The 21-year-old is a 6’6″, 246-pound target that moves as gracefully as a much-smaller wide receiver. Yet, his adjustments on the ball, coupled with his immense wingspan, are something to behold.

Julio Jones may no longer play for the Falcons, but Atlanta still has someone to serve as a standard-bearer at his position.

Arizona Cardinals: QB Kyler Murray

Published

By

Once upon a time, the Arizona Cardinals had a “difficult” decision to make.

General manager Steve Keim and new head coach Kliff Kingsbury owned the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft, with Kyler Murray sitting there as a perfect fit for Kingbury’s offense. Even though the team invested a top-10 pick in Josh Rosen the year prior, Arizona did the smart thing by selecting Murray.

Fast forward two years. Murray is now a leading MVP candidate, while Rosen is on his fifth team in four seasons.

Murray’s growth has been impressive. He currently leads the league with a 75.2 completion percentage and is the game’s best downfield passer. Plus, his mobility makes him nearly impossible to bottle up when everything breaks down.

In Year 3, the 24-year-old quarterback staked his claim among the NFL’s elite.

Every NFL Team’s Most Promising Youngster

Published

on

By

In the NFL, youth isn’t wasted on the young. Professional football is a young man’s game (unless you’re Tom Brady). In fact, every single franchise’s average age is 27 or younger, per Spotrac.

The days of loading up on veterans in an attempt for quick turnarounds or holding on to certain names well past their prime are long gone. Current rosters are often built around a few key veterans while collecting the bulk of the roster in their prime years, with young players serving as a crucial component to the salary cap because of their relatively cheap rookie deals.

Brady and Andrew Whitworth are anomalies. They skew the numbers away from the majority of NFL rosters.

Otherwise, every front office wants to build around a marquee talent entering his prime years. These individuals have yet to reach 25 years old and already showed promising signs with early production coupled with extensive growth potential.

These are the youth gone wild as the NFL never appeared too big for them.
