Our NFL Insiders make their predictions for Week 4: The biggest upsets, fantasy sleepers and busts, the best 3-0 team, bounce-back players, and the 1-2 team that worries them the most.
What’s your biggest upset for Week 4?
Newton already has five interceptions, three more than a year ago. He threw three interceptions and was sacked eight times in Sunday’s loss to Minnesota.
“It’s really going to come down to us,’’ Newton said of turning things around. “Just like this past game, it wasn’t anything that they did outside of us executing. We have to understand our role. We have to take the personal challenge to ourselves knowing we’ve got to be better.
“If we do that, nine times out of 10 we put ourselves in the best situation. Then it comes down to how good the individual is.’’
Brown apparently switched his shoes for the second half in Philadelphia, where Brown finished with 12 catches for 140 yards.
Luke Willson was used in an H-back-type role and was heavily involved in the run game.
“He did well,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “He was comfortable with it. He’s really pumped up about anything that he gets to do to add to the team, so he was excited about the chance and he looked pretty comfortable. He’ll definitely improve in the next couple weeks. It’s a really good role for him, and it makes us a little versatile in that substitution. That’s a good positive thing for us.”
We’ll see in future weeks whether this was a game plan deal or something the Seahawks intend to use regularly. My hunch is they’ll still be mostly an 11 personnel (one RB, one TE) team.
