Best NFL Week 4 performances awarded by MMQB staff

Week 4 on the NFL schedule is almost in the books (we still have Monday Night Football) and the best performances deserve to be recognized by our MMQB staff. Even if you’re feeling down because your team didn’t win, maybe one of your favorite players or coaches gets awarded a game ball by our staff. Let’s go!

Giants running back Saquon Barkley leads the NFL in rushing after his Week 4 performance against the Bears.

Mitch Goldich: Saquon Barkley, RB, Giants. Barkley entered Week 4 second in the NFL in rushing and then overtook Nick Chubb with Sunday’s 31 carries for 146 yards.

The letter’s flipped position within the word “bar” undresses the long-accepted expectation when a person wants to eat, drink and watch a game in a restaurant. Often “the game” involves men and if the pub keeps the channel on ESPN, nearly 95% of filler programming revolves around men’s leagues and players.

But not here.

The Sports Bra opened in April and claims to be the

Football losing battle with US sports, calls for ESL revival

Florentino Perez said that football is “sick” and “losing the global entertainment battle” with US sports, and he backed the dormant European Super League (ESL) project as the way to retain its position as the world’s most popular sport.

The Real Madrid president — who was speaking at the club’s annual general meeting on Sunday — has been one of the breakaway competition’s most high-profile backers since its attempted launch in April 2021.

The ESL and football’s governing bodies are pending a ruling from the European Court of Justice, due in December, on whether UEFA’s attempts to block the Super League breached European competition laws.

“To fix a problem, you have to first recognize that you have a problem,” Perez said.
