As the beginning of the 2013-14 NFL season starts, there are many concerns and praise for all 32 teams in the league after weeks one and two. Many have done well while others are slightly disappointing.
Teams like the Redskins have not lived up to their expectations, starting off the season with an 0-2 record. Many people predicted they were going to win the NFC and maybe even go to the Super Bowl.
Unlike the Redskins, the Denver Broncos are destroying their opponents one by one, not losing a single game yet.
Sophomore Acheev Phaget was hoping the New York Giants would make another playoff run, but after their loss to the Dallas Cowboys on September 8, and the Denver Broncos on the 15, he had other opinions: “Pretty excited for the season. I’m hoping the Giants have another playoff run, but the season did start off poorly for them.”
Others, however, do not support teams around the New York metro area, and root for teams that win a lot of games, or because their favorite players are on a different team.
Sophomore Caroline Collier is angry at the fact that her favorite team, the Washington Redskins, are not performing as well: “The season has been awful and disappointing because I like the Redskins.”
Super bowl champs, Baltimore Ravens, do not look like heavy contenders this year, especially since they beat the struggling Browns by one touchdown.
The runner ups, San Francisco 49ers, got destroyed by the Seattle Seahawks on September 15 and sadly, the 49ers are also in the same position as the Ravens with a 1-1 record.
As always, the NFL looks to be a competitive and well-rounded season this year with undecided fixtures and not a clear winner in sight. Stay tuned.
