Key Takeaways

  • Whoever decided ATL, New England, and New York all needed round 12 byes was a genius.
  • Toronto wanted to be within reach when their home stint began. Their next three games will have plenty of opportunities to pick up points.
  • NOLA has three games against teams against them over the next four rounds. Its a great chance to claw back into the chase, but there’s a reason why the Gold are still underground.
  • New Old Glory coach Nate Osborne has a sneaky good run of fixtures. Find a win and a couple bonus points and he’ll start looking like the front runner for the permanent job.
