Clearing the Deck – NFL Week 10

November 10, 2013

Clearing the deck for week 10 of the NFL season…

* Broncos Nation is holidng its collective breathe as Peyton Manning has his MRI on his lower right leg Monday.  Up next for the 8-1 Broncos, the 9-0 Chiefs.

* Who saw this one coming: Rams 38 Colts 8?!

* How ’bout them Panthers – 5 wins in a row after silencing the 49ers in SF, 10-9. Up next for Carolina: MNF at home against the Patriots.

* The Lions rule atop the NFC North.  Let that marinate around for a bit.

* A by-product of the Lions win, Jay Cutler’s out again for the Bears.

* Good news, bad news for the Steelers: they beat Buffalo, but trade rumors begin for Big Ben.

* Think about this: Nick Foles has 16 TD’s (10 in the past two games) and 0 INT’s this season.

* Don’t look now, but the AFC North is dogfight again with both the Ravens and Browns just 1.5 games behind the now slumping Bengals.

* Case Keenum is exciting, but the Texans just aren’t that good right now.

* Yes Jacksonville, you will not go winless this season.  And that as the Titans blow a golden chance to sneak up on the Colts in the AFC South.

Clearing the Deck – NFL Week 9

November 3, 2013

Clearing the deck for week 9 of the NFL season…

* Welcome back Tom Brady! 432 yards and 4 TD’s vs. Pittsburgh Sunday is something fantasy football and Patriots fans are more used to from TB12.

* Can you believe the Browns (4-5) have more wins than the defending Super Bowl Champion Ravens (3-5)? They do now after beating Baltimore Sunday.

* Hey Cowboys, be thankful you were playing the Vikings this week.

* Darnell Young saves the Redskins season with an unlikely 3-TD day in washington’s OT win over the Chargers.

* If only the Bills had a QB, there’d be no more undefeated teams left.  That having been said, KC continues to be lucky each week. That luck stops as Denver and San Diego are up next on the schedule.

* Give Cam Newton his props, he’s got the Panthers back in playoff contention.

* Sorry Jeff Fisher, you can’t go home again (or at least you can’t be them in your home).

* How are Rex Ryan’s Jets 5-4? This week’s victim: Rob Ryan’s Saints.

* Have a season in one day Nick Foles – 7 TD’s – tying an NFL record with Peyton Manning and 5 others!!!!

* To say the Seahawks dodged a bullet would be an understatement.  Down 21-0 to winless Tampa Bay, they survive in OT, 27-24.
