Georgia's star running back Todd Gurley is one of the best that college football has seen in recent years, but at a time when the NFL has seemingly devalued the running back position (none drafted in first round the past two years), does he really have a chance to be drafted in Round 1 in 2015?

Despite all the talk about the Philadelphia offense over the course of the first four weeks of the NFL season, individually the numbers are not there for guys like Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy. In the case of McCoy, who has averaged just 2.7 yards in 70 carries and has as many fumbles as touchdowns (1), the Eagles' offensive line has provided little room for him to run.

So why, then, may Week 5 be the week McCoy busts out?

The Chicago Bears couldn't figure out how to slow down Aaron Rodgers Sunday, as the quarterback threw four touchdowns, leading his Green Bay Packers to a 38-17 win in Chicago. They failed to generate any pressure on Rodgers, as they worked in zone coverage, while trying to get after the quarterback with four pass rushers.

No one in their right mind expected Nick Foles to match his 27:2 TD:INT ratio from last season. He currently sits at 6:4 in that department after throwing zero scores and two interceptions during Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Overall he has looked decent but not great.

The San Diego Chargers' passing attack was in sync Sunday, as QB Philip Rivers threw for 377 yards and 3 TDs against the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, they managed only 41 rushing yards on 20 attempts. Only the Oakland Raiders are averaging fewer rushing yards per game than the Chargers (69.5 YPG).

When a franchise has key people performing well, it often leads to wins, but it also can lead to huge paydays that can sap cap space. Consider DeMarco Murray, who has racked up an NFL-best 534 yards and five touchdowns during the first four games of the final year of his rookie contract.

With Adrian Peterson out of the mix and rookie QB Teddy Bridgewater making his first start Sunday, there was hope in Fantasyland that second-year WR Cordarrelle Patterson might finally break out. Instead, he saw a season-low four passing targets, zero rushes and ended up with just two receptions for 38 yards and no scores.

On Sunday, I noted that Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen and GM Reggie McKenzie were squarely on the hot seat heading into their overseas tilt with the Miami Dolphins. Surely, the heat on their seats rose further after they were mopped up 38-14 in London.

There was buzz from an AP reporter Sunday evening that Allen was out, though that tweet quickly was retracted. Still, it appears that Allen has a tenuous grip on the job, and a change during their Week 5 bye could be imminent.

“'I will keep you posted,' a Raiders spokesman texted me early this morning," TheMMQB.com's Peter King wrote Monday morning. "It’s just a matter of time for Allen, who cannot survive with a porous D plus Matt McGloin becoming the third starting quarterback in the last six weeks now that Derek Carr is out with a sprained knee ligament and sprained ankle.
