Week 4 NFL Preview

Seven teams – Arizona, Atlanta, Carolina, Cincinnati, Denver, Green Bay and New England – remain undefeated as the NFL enters Week 4.

“It’s the kind of start you always want to have,” says Bengals quarterback ANDY DALTON, who leads the AFC in passer rating (121.0), about the team’s 3-0 record. “It says a lot about the people we have on this team. We’re going to keep playing one week at a time but we like where we are right now.”

The chances of making the playoffs after a 3-0 start are good but far from certain. Since 1990, when the current playoff format was adopted, 93 of the 124 teams (75 percent) to start 3-0 have qualified for the postseason.

Thursday Night Football Preview: Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers

Week 4 begins on Thursday night (CBS/NFLN, 8:25 PM ET) with the PITTSBURGH STEELERS (2-1) hosting the BALTIMORE RAVENS (0-3) at Heinz Field.

Pittsburgh enters Week 4 following a 12-6 victory over St. Louis. Steelers running back LE’ VEON BELL tallied 132 scrimmage yards (62 rushing, 70 receiving) with a rushing touchdown. Bell now has 3,606 career scrimmage yards, joining Pro Football Hall of Famer JEROME BETTIS (4,603) as the second player in Steelers franchise history to reach 3,500 scrimmage yards in his first three seasons with the team.

“I like the way he plays the game,” says Pittsburgh head coach MIKE TOMLIN about Bell. “He wants to be a reason why we win. He is never fazed by the elements. He had a good look in his eye and he is always positive. Those are just some of the reasons that we like his play.”
