UCLA had a lot of expectations coming into the season and have underwhelmed in comparison. With plenty of NFL talent boasting both squads there are plenty of players to keep a keen eye on.

Is there anything better than a winning streak? The Lions come into week 10 at 7-2, winning three games in a row in fourth quarter miracle comebacks. The historic defense continues to fire on all cylinders and the offense is starting to get healthy. What makes this Lions team different than previous teams? Because unlike other seasons, this team looks like it’s getting BETTER as the season progresses. Their match up this week is against the top team in the NFC, the 8-1 Arizona Cardinals. Next week, they face one of the top teams in the AFC. No big whoop. No pressure. Let’s take a look at some of the under the radar matches I’ll be watching this week. Read the rest of this entry »
