Every week during the NFL season, the 33rd Team will present some of the most interesting Tweets that come across our timeline during Sunday’s action. Here’s the Week 4 rundown:
Bill Belichick has now been in the Bucs’ locker room for 20 minutes, talking in a private area with Tom Brady. Belichick entered on his own without anyone else around him.

We all knew that the postgame hug between Belichick and Brady would be epic.

Picked by many to finish last in the NFC West, the Cardinals lead the division at 4-0 after a very hot start.
The Cardinals have produced 10.2 EPA on 32 RPO plays. That's a HUGE improvement over last season when they finished with a negative EPA on RPOs.
The big difference is they're actually throwing downfield on those plays. Average depth of target has jumped from 0.6 to 2.5 yards.

Kyler’s stop start is as undefendable as a Rodgers back shoulder pass. Like what are you supposed to do?! https://t.co/8v0N2hsB7C

If you present a realistic threat to just attempt to run the ball as an offense, play action will work. Every time. If you will call it. It amazes me every Sunday the amount of open area between the 2nd and 3rd level of the defense when play action is properly executed.

The @steelers now lead the league in 4th down all-or-nothing passes thrown to their running back way behind the sticks.

Kyler Murray makes defensive coaches sweat like every person that had to defend against Mike Vick in Madden '04 https://t.co/32UARwKcNb

Two first year coaches are yet to see a win through four weeks

the only player keeping Seattle in this early on is Jimmy Garoppolo…

The last time both Jets and Giants won on the same day? December 22, 2019.
Today marks the first time in NFL history where both New York teams win in overtime in the same day. pic.twitter.com/jtJQget19j

I think Justin Jefferson is approaching Davante Adams-level of unstoppable if he's not there already

With 5 interceptions thus far, Trevon Diggs is on pace for 21 picks this season. The current record of 14 was set by Night Train Lane in 1952.
Trevon Diggs with ANOTHER interception.

Justin Fields (I know he’s facing the Lions) is playing the best game of any rookie QB this season (I know he’s facing the Lions)

“OK, Arthur Smith. You can turn one player on your Titans offense into a superhuman force. Who do you pick?”
“That’s easy, Derrick Henry.”
“OK, Arthur. Now that you’re with the Falcons, you get to pick again.”
“That’s easy, Cordarrelle Patterson.”

Shaq Thompson‘s growth this season has been remarkable, and one of the big reasons why the Panthers defense has looked much improved through four weeks.
Shaq Thompson struggled last year in his first season with no Luke Kuechly alongside him. Career-low PFF grade of 49.8.
He's been phenomenal this season. One of the best LBs in the NFL through the first few weeks.#CARvsDAL

Eagles 14 passes 6 runs. The entire city of Philly may have a nervous breakdown. They are moving the ball. If someone tells you they passed too much early just change the channel. They know nothing in football
— Joe Banner (@JoeBanner13) October 3, 2021
The way the #Eagles just handled that 4th down is basically exactly what you do not want to do. They took too long to make a decision, wasted a timeout, then elected to kick a field goal on 4th and 3, in a situation where analytics supports going for it…
