Week in and week out there are great games to go along with some amazing story lines. Week 6 continued a great trend of great moments during the football week. Feel free to chime in and comment on our selections if you like. Enjoy!
The New York Giants made a statement- By the New York Giants beating the Niners they may be the best team in the NFC. It hurts to type this, because I am a Niners fan, but the Giants dominated in the run game and made Alex Smith look like the Alex Smith of old. The Giants are great when their backs are against the wall. Can they keep up the good play when expectations are rising?
Peyton Manning & The Broncos are going to be dangerous- In the Monday Night Football game Peyton and the Bronco’s defense led a historic comeback. Being down 24 points Manning and the troops closed out the game by winning 35-24. No this was not a Tim Tebow Disney comeback, this was actually done by the Bronco’s defense harassing Philip Rivers for six turnovers as well as Manning doing surgery on the Chargers defense. As the season goes on the Broncos will only improve. The sky is the limit for the team in the Mile High city.
Andy Reid needs to make changes- I don’t know if Michael Vick should be benched, but something needs to be done in Philly. I think play calling has a lot to do with Vick’s turnovers, and there is only so much you can do when your offensive line works for PETA. Shady McCoy should be featured more which eliminates the chances Vick can turn the ball over. Juan Castillo and the Defense lost the game in the closing moments of the game for the second consecutive week. It still baffles me that a former offensive line coach is the defensive coordinator for this team. Andy better wake up soon or things will get ugly in Philly.
The Ravens will be in trouble- Ray Lewis and LaDarius Webb were lost to season ending injuries against the Dallas Cowboys. I know football is the ultimate team sport, but it will be close to impossible to replace No. 52. With losing Webb it will not be such of a blow, because that will insert Jimmy Smith in the lineup who has loads of potential. I can’t remember the last time I saw Ray Lewis on the sideline for an extensive period of time. This will get interesting.
3-3 is a trend in the NFL- 11 teams boast the record of 3-3. At this time of the year bye weeks can be very helpful for teams to regain confidence or to get healthy. It will be interesting to see what teams make it over the hump.
The Discount Double Check is back in effect- Aaron Rodgers made the Houston Texans defense look awful. The six touchdown passes were a season high, and it will only boast Rodgers confidence for the remainder of the season. The Packers are a lot better than what their record states ( 3-3) so I expect them to go a far as No.12 can take them.
The Browns will not go win less- Cleveland has had a few bright moments this season, but none translated into victories. With the rivalry game against the Bengals the Browns won the match up. Shout out to the Browns for getting their first win.
