Week 4 NFL Sunday is officially in the books. The end of NFL Sunday is always bitter sweet. In a interesting way, I can literally watch 11293 hours straight of NFL football. But alas, week 4 is in the books and we have 16 more Sundays to go. Here are the 3 biggest story lines from week 4 NFL Sunday and to get a full recap of all the games listen to the Just Talk Podcast.

Of course Tom Brady and the Buccaneers trip to Foxbourough was the biggest storyline of the NFL regular season thus far. Brady wasn’t quite sharp in his return to Foxbourough to face Bill Belichick and the Patriots; but weather probably played a factor in that. And at the end of the day of course Tom Brady came through at the end of the game to help his team secure victory. Oh and he broke the all time passing yardage record too.

Kyler Murray & The Cardinals
Kyler Murray vaulted himself to the top of the NFL MVP race and the Cardinals put themselves in the driver seat in the NFC West which is the toughest division in all of football. But beware Cardinal fans, we saw the Cardinals jump to hot start last season as well. But if the Cardinals continue their hot start and the team remains healthy, watch out, because the offense can score and score fast.

The Steelers are one of the most iconic franchises in all of pro sports in the United States. And it just seems like this is their season from hell. Ben Roethlisberger looks completely finished. And with no true heir apparent in site and a division that has a lot of young good quarterbacks the Steelers could find themselves in a long and painful rebuild.
Dear Ben Roethlisberger,
Please retire last year. You're done.
