Helluva week, football fans. NFL Week 4 taught us that the Rams are actually pretty good under rookie head coach Sean McVay with a league-high 35.5 points per game, Cam Newton’s shoulder is just fine, Jay Cutler is still garbage as the Dolphins became the first team to ever be shut out in London, the Saints now have a semi-defense (one that achieved its first shutout since Week 15 of the 2012 season), Adrian Peterson is fairly done, the shocking 2-2 Jets will lack talent but keep fighting, same for the 3-1 Bills, and Larry Fitzgerald should be the first NFL player to make the Hall of Fame while still active (right, Tyrann Mathieu?).
What else did we learn in NFL Week 4? Well, first off the tank-focused Jets are 2-2 and locked with the Patriots for No. 2 in the AFC East behind none other than.. the 3-1 Buffalo Bills. The Jets can’t even tank properly.
Deshaun Watson, who led the Houston Texans to a franchise-record 57 points (the previous mark of 45 also came against the Titans back in 2014) is a sharer and a lover.

Ezekiel Elliott is still among the best celebrators we’ve got, even if he looks like the cheerleaders from “The Longest Yard.”

We’ve only just finished NFL Week 4, but the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots are shocking Vegas.

Ben McAdoo needs to give up play calling immediately.
The Indianapolis Colts are generally awful, but even more so in the second half.
Marshawn Lynch is always and forever keeping it real.
The NFL is a model of penalty inconsistency, on and off the field.
Jared Goff to Sammy Watkins is perfect (h/t Pro Football Focus).
Tarik Cohen — the Chicago Bears’ fourth-round pick who is second on the team in rushing yards (181), second in receiving yards (150), and first in both targets (29) and catches (24), is seriously a freak.
Tarik Cohen is an absolute freak.
