After an exciting Week 3, the 2021 NFL season continues with a packed Week 4 lineup of 16 games. Thursday Night Football will kick off the week when the 2-1 Cincinnati Bengals welcome the 0-3 Jacksonville Jaguars to the Jungle at Paul Brown Stadium.
Thursday’s game will be a matchup between two quarterbacks who were the No. 1 overall picks in the last two drafts. Rookie QB Trevor Lawrence has yet to win a game as a starter for the Jaguars and this is his first-ever losing streak in the regular season, including high school and college. Across the field will be former Ohio State QB Joe Burrow, who Jaguars coach Urban Meyer coached in college. Burrow was never named the starter at Ohio State, which led to him transferring to LSU where he ended having the most statistically impressive season by a QB on his way to securing the Heisman Trophy (2019), the CFP National Champion (2019), and the CFP National Championship Offensive MVP (2019).
Reigning Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady makes his return to Gillette Stadium when the 2-1 Tampa Buccaneers take on the 1-2 New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football. Fans have been debating if Brady or Belichick was the mastermind behind the Patriots’ two decades of success. Since leaving New England, Brady has continued his winning ways after securing another Lombardi Trophy in Tampa Bay. For Belichick and the Patriots, last season, things were not up to par with their glorious past, as the club recorded their first losing season since 2000. If Patriots rookie QB Mac Jones can hand Brady a loss in Foxboro, Patriots fans will rejoice; however, if Brady wins, he’ll have his revenge by finally defeating every single NFL team.
The AFC West will have the spotlight on Monday Night Football when the Las Vegas Raiders travel to SoFi Stadium to take on the Los Angeles Chargers. At 3-0, the Raiders entered the week tied with the Broncos at the top of the AFC West with QB David Carr playing at an MVP level. He’ll have to outduel Chargers QB Justin Herbert, who is coming off a big win against division rivals and the defending AFC Champions Kansas City Chiefs. Monday night’s game will be a big divisional game as both teams look to continue their momentum in hopes of dethroning the Chiefs streak of 5-straight divisional titles.
