NFL Recap

Lions 44, Broncos 7: With each blowout defeat they acquire, I grow further angry that the Steelers lost to the Broncos two weeks ago.

Falcons 20, 49ers 16: It's at least becoming apparent to me that the Niners need to start Michael Robinson at QB.

Bills 33, Bengals 21: The demise of our cocky friends down the Ohio continues. In all seriousness, I hope Chad Johnson is OK.

Titans 20, Panthers 7: Is it me, or could the Titans be one of the worst 6-2 teams in memory?

Packers 33, Chiefs 22: Everyone asks, how could you not like Brett Favre? The answer is easy: I DON'T. He's not on a Brady level of hatred, but I'm sick of hearing about him. That said, he's still got an arm.

Vikings 35, Chargers 17: It only took "Purple Jesus", aka Adrian Peterson, 8 games to break the NFL rushing record, getting 296 yesterday. This record should not last long however; the Vikings play in Denver on December 30. I'm calling it now: AP breaks 300 in that game. This guy might be the most entertaining running back I've seen in the 21st century. Oh yeah, and a note to ESPN: We get it. 109 yards is the longest possible touchdown play. When a touchdown is scored on a 109 yard return, there's really no need to say, "That was the longest NFL play ever." It's kind of assumed. We've had a longest NFL play ever like every single year recently.

Saints 41, Jaguars 24: The NFC Black and Gold finally are getting back on track.

Redskins 23, Jets 20 (OT): Yawn. You know it's an ugly one when you're calling for the Red Zone Channel to switch away from a game currently in overtime:

Buccaneers 17, Cardinals 10: With each Cardinals loss, I grow more and more agitated that the Steelers lost to them.

Browns 33, Seahawks 30 (OT): I'm convinced Holmgren lost this game on purpose because he's still mad at the Steelers about the Super Bowl.

Team X 24, Team Y 20: You all know what game I'm talking about. Forget the 4th quarter comeback by Lucifer, the one thing to take away from this game is that: BOTH TEAMS ARE BEATABLE. So let's end the 16-0 talk now: it's not going to happen.

Texans 24, Raiders 17: Um, ok.

Cowboys 38, Eagles 17: Remember last year when TO coming to Philadelphia was the most insanely overhyped regular season game ever? It's amazing how in one year it can become completely overshadowed by Team X vs. Team Y.

And then tonight, the Steelers take on the Ravens on Monday Night Football. A huge game for the black and gold: win (and beat the Browns next week) and the division is pretty much a stranglehold, lose and we have a 3-way tie for first. The key: AVOID TURNOVERS AND SILLY SPECIAL TEAMS CRAP. I can't forsee the Baltimore offense moving the ball very well against us, so as long as we don't make any stupid mistakes, we should be OK in this one. Note to viewers: Wear your sunglasses, as I believe the Steelers are breaking out the bright yellow throwback helmets again tonight.
