NFL Week 10 Recap
Belichick’s Muscle shoves a cameraman out of the way following the loss.
Colts 35, Patriots 34 – It’s being dubbed the Rivalry of the Decade and Sunday night just added to the lore. The Colts were riding a 17 game winning streak and with the win have tied the Patriots for the 3rd longest streak in NFL history. We know one thing for watching this game…Bill Belichick has a lot of balls. leading by 6 points and with no timeouts Belichick decided to go for it on 4th & 2 at the Patriots own 28. What appeared to be a first down was ruled short by officials and Peyton Manning was basically handed the game. Even though Manning had already threw a few picks in the game Belichick made the right move. He knew no matter where Manning got the ball at he was going to bust the Patriots secondary’s asses and get into the endzone.
Bengals 18, Steelers 12 – The Who Dey! phenomenon is growing by the week. Even though he got suspended from school we’re sure the kid who got the Bengals “B” cut into his dome last week is cheesin’ like Chuck E. The Bengals solidified their position atop the AFC North with the win, sweeping the Steelers for the first time since 1998 and improving to 5-0 in the division for the first time in franchise history. Along with the Colts and Patriots, they are a Top 3 team in the AFC at this point in the season.
Saints 28, Rams 23 – Drew Brees and company continue to ball out, granted it was against the Rams but they don’t make the schedule. The Saints are off to their first 9-0 start in franchise history. Reggie Bush did a little bit of work with 85 yards and a TD on 6 carries. With the win the Saints improved to 4-0 on the road this season.
Vikings 27, Lions 10 – In another battle of good team vs shitty team, Brett Favre and the Vikes easily disposed of the divsion rival pushover Lions. Favre went 20-29 for 344 yards and a TD and AP did his usual thug thizzle rushing for 133 yards and 2 TD. Peterson has had a cause of the fumbles lately, coughing up 2 in the game, but it mattered not because the Vikings defense is legit.
Chargers 31, Eagles 23 – The Chargers continued their winning ways, staying classy with their 4th in a row. After a forgetful season, L.T. got 2 blessings on Sunday. The first was a new baby and the second was a solid game, rushing for 96 yards and 2 TD. The Eagles have been playing sloppy as of late and even though Donovan McNabb threw for 450 yards, Mike Vick may want to start getting ready for some action.
Cardinals 31, Seahawks 20 – The Cards looked like they were heading for an ass-whoppin’ after trailing early, but Kurt Warner and rookie running back Beanie Wells combined to do work to give ‘Zona the win. Warner threw for 340 yards and 2 TD in the air, while Wells put up a career-high 85 yards and 2 TD on the ground.
Packers 17, Cowboys 7 – The division that was once considered the toughest in the league has taken a step back in recent weeks. Even with the loss, the Cowboys remain atop NFC East standings with a 6-3 record. Packers sometimes tight end has continued to get it done…quickly. Havner has 4 TD receptions in the last 4 games with 7 totatl receptions this season. Tony Romo was sacked a season-high 5 times but #1 receiver Roy Williams did do work, with 105 receiving yards and a TD.
Jaguars 24, Jets 22 – Jack Del Rio might not get booted like we once assumed following the Jags miserable start to the season. Since losing their first 2 games the Jaguars have been on something like a roll, winning 5 of their last 7 and are above .500 for the first time in recent memory. The win really rest on the smarts of the little engine that could Maurice Jones-Drew. With the Jags trailing late in the contest and in striking position Rex Ryan decided to concede a touchdown to give his team a chance to get the ball back. Jones-Drew had a free lane to the endzone but took a knee at the one yard line to allow the Jags to run out the clock and kick a field goal for the win.
Redskins 27, Broncos 17 – The Broncos have been on a skid similar to when my undies get wedged between my buttocks, dropping 3 straight games after a surprising 6-0 start. Nut-huggers are already spitting out the kool-aid and jumping off the bandwagon as Josh McDaniels squad not appears to be human. Kyle Orton got hurt bugt Brandon Marshall did manage to do work with 5 catches for 134 yards and 2 TD. Meanwhile the Redskins finally got the win they desperately needed, snapping a 4-game losing streak and take a little heat away from the growing contingent of fans that are saltier than some crackers.
Panthers 28, Falcons 19 – After a shaky start and calls for his benching, Jake Delhomme has battled back to help the Panthers have some semblance of a season. Delhomme threw for 195 passing yards and 2 TD to the Legend that is Steve Smith. The Panthers 2-headed monster at running back, DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, did work as well nearly 200 yards on the ground. Stewart’s 2 TD weren’t too shabby either.
Titans 41, Bills 17 – After winning their 3rd straight game following their nasty 0-6 start, the Titans are finally looking like a respectable outfit. Vince Young’s return to the starting lineup may have something to do with it, but the boy Chris Johnson is killing like the Juice (allegedly) circa 1994. “Every Coach’s Dream” put up over 100 receiving and rushing yards in the game to go along with 2 TD. That boy good.
Dolphins 25, Buccaneers 23 – The ‘Phins have bounced back after a nasty start, winning 4 of their last 6 games, behind the decent play of replacement QB Chad Henne. Ricky “I Got Way More Than 5 On It” Williams ran for 102 yards on 20 carries. Meanwhile the Buccaneers still suck like Ava Devine.
Chiefs 16, Raiders 10 – The best part about this game is that somebody has to win, which means they don’t suck as much as the other. But these teams still suck equally and are not worth wasting catchy lingo and info on.
