The League

THE QUESTION

Parity or poor play?

For the first time since 1970, no NFL team reached 4-0 to start the season. Is this a case extreme parity or just poor play from the league's top teams? And is this development good or bad for the NFL?

Jumping to conclusions

It's far too early to accurately asses the quality of play and the quality of teams in the NFL this season. Defensive struggles may not appeal to everyone, but it remains a formula for success.
