Couple cool games today… tune in (now on Fox for Detroit/Green Bay) and later this afternoon on CBS to see the good games, Colts/Falcons tonight on NFL Network (if anyone cares) …Also, there is no more turkey leg award. It has been replaced by an ugly stupid turkey award. Worst news of the day.
Packers 34, Vikings 0
After yet another stellar day in the pocket, Brett Favre’s new magic number is 158. That’s the amount of yards passing the legendary Packers quarterback has to average over the next seven games if he is to break Dan Marino’s career passing yardage record. For the Packers defense, the magic number was 0, which was the first one Green Bay ever put up against its long-time rivals.
The rest of the games below…
Week #9 of the NFL season is in the books. The New England Cheaters and Indianapolis Colts played what many considered to be the greatest regular season game in NFL history. The Green Bay Packers looked very impressive again this week as they pounded the Kansas City Chiefs. The Minnesota Vikings looked really good with their running game shredding the San Diego Chargers. Adrian Peterson set an NFL record by rushing for 296 yards in the game.
The greatest regular season game in NFL history looked like just another game. The defenses dominated for much of the game as the offenses were out of sync. Indy kicked more field goals than I wanted to see in this game. Both QB’s threw 2 interceptions a piece. Manning’s fumble at the end of the game sealed it. The Colts have nothing positive to take from this ugly loss except Marvin Harrison did not play. The Patriots have a very easy schedule remaining after their bye week and could go for an undefeated, 16-0 season if they wanted to.
Other impressive winners Sunday included the Lions, Redskins, Cowboys, and Saints. The Lions torched the overrated Dre Bly, similar to what Green Bay did to him last week. This game was over early! The Redskins played an ugly game but got the win against Jets in overtime. Dallas crushed Philadelphia. T.O. had some shenanigans going during the game … does anybody care? Dallas is still 2nd tier to Indy and the the Cheaters in New England. The Saints appear to have found their stride as their offense went to town on a very stout Jaguar’s defense.
Patriots 52, Redskins 7
After back-to-back games that netted a combined 101 points, it’s no surprise the Patriots have now scored 331 points through the first eight games, the best scoring output in NFL history (by one point, over the 2000 Rams).
Giants 13, Dolphins 10
