Last week was a huge week for football. There were a lot of games that were shocks and not so shocking results. I mean its football what did you thin was going to happen ? Everyone gets a participation trophy after the games? No, it's the NFL or whatever. That joke went absolutely nowhere so lets just get into it. Did I use that photo before? Oh well.
Lets do this .
Seahawks V. Cowboys-In the no brainer game of the week. The Cowboys won this game by a ten spot. Romo was lucky that Seattle has a terrible defense and an equally terrible Quarterback to make him look like a stud by comparison. Jackson who drew the short straw to go under center for the Seahawks three picks. Dallas has to be the luckiest team in the NFL right now, while every team who is hunting for a playoff spot has a back breaking schedule they Cowboys have it pretty easy. The only real tough games they have left are two against Big Blue so they could wind up with a Wild card spot. As for your 2010 NFC west champions not so much they are dead ass in the water. I wonder what quarterback they wont take in the first round next draft. The Cowboys play the Bills and the Seahawks are taking on the high flying Ravens so thats going to be a good game for the Hawks.
Falcons V. Colts-Two words. JULIO JONES! The rookie from Bama showed up after sitting a few weeks with a hammy issue came out and caught his first 2 NFL touchdowns and tore up the Colts sad excuse of a defense with 131 yards on only 3 catches. The Flacons dropped 31 on the unrealistically bad Colts. So really we can legitimately say the Peyton Manning is the best team player in the NFL. He is so good at his job that he makes his surrounding team worlds better. Teams used to fear playing the Colts now they want to get that easy win. The Colts play the Jags and the Flacons take on the Saints for a first place matchup.
Redskins V. 49ers-All and all just another step for the strongest team in the weakest division taking on another team who is falling apart. Ok I am not getting on the niners but they have defiantly caught some breaks this year. Granted they have the best run defense in the NFL and the Redskins only handed the ball off 15 times. Frank Gore has carried this offense , he had his 5th game over 100 yards on the ground and that is the way to go. This sunday they play the Giants which could be their real late season test for them because this could be a playoff match up. While the niners take on Big Blue the Redskins take on the plucky upstarts Miami Dolphins. That right there is the game to watch, if you have a choice between that game or having brain surgery preformed by Buster Bluth .
Raiders V. Broncos-This game was an old school AFC west show down.You know back when the West used to be relevant. Instead of just a joke which it is now. But since the West dropped off in respectability on the defensive side of the ball but their offenses have been dropping bombs. Carson Palmer has really have had a tough start for the Raiders have two games with 3 interceptions but he did blow up for 332 yards through the air and the running game hasn't missed a step with Run DMC out. Even though the Raiders lost they look to be the favorite right now to win the West. But lets give up to Tebow for winning again. Tebow and Willis Macghee both rushed over 100 yards. Yes, he might have a style that doesn't work for most people but it works out so far with wins over the Dolphins and Raiders Tebow has a better win loss record then Kyle Orton has in the past two years. The Raiders played the Chargers on thursday ( I'll get that out next week) and the Broncos take on the Chiefs.
Eagles V. Bears-As everyone salivated on monday night over Michael Vick and the over hyped team take on the Bears who have been a hit or miss team. By hit or miss I mean the defense will hit you hard as Matt Forte makes you miss. Thank you , thank you it just came to me. The Eagles took a late lead but like most of their games they blew it. Vick had a less then stellar game since he only threw 213 with a pick. Jay Cutler out played Vick with the return of his favorite option Earl Bennett who got fined for wearing some slick ass orange cleats. The Eagles take on the Cardinals for a bounce back and the Bears take on the Lions to move into second place of the North.
Ravens V. Steelers-I think if you watch the video of what happened during the end of the game would do a better job of recapping then I could even try.
Jets V. Bills-What to say about this game. It was an ego game, by that I mean if the Jets lost the fans would be saying that they were done for the season , but since they won Jets fans started booking flights to Indy for the Superbowl. The Jets shut down the Bills for most of the game. Sanchez threw for 230 with a td to Santino Holmes. Even though Fred Jackson had a good game by rushing for 82 yards and had 36 receiving yards. This game pretty much knocked out the Bills out of the division race and just for a wild card spot. But are the Jets for real. I can't ask anyone around here because they just start spelling loudly at me. The Bills go to Dallas for a battle of 90's superbowls and the Jets Face the reeling Patriots who might be looking to put a hurting on someone.
So that was week 9. It was pretty exciting it made up for week 7 and some of week 8. So like always best of luck to you and your favorite team and to your fantasy teams. I'll be back on monday with some other collections of words that aren't funny to you but make me laugh.
