Today was one of the best days in the NFL this season. It makes having Sunday Ticket worthwhile. Then again, every week makes Sunday Ticket worthwhile. Let’s get to the biggies:
Washington-New York Giants: Lived up to its billing as one of the most exciting games of the season. Bob Griffin led the Redskins to a 23-20 lead with less than two minutes to go. New York responded with a long scoring pass of their own to take a 27-23 lead with 1:12 left. Washington tried to respond but a Santana Moss fumbled ended their chances. We almost got to call Bob Griffin his nickname.
New Orleans-Tampa Bay: Saints went down 21-7, but came back to make it 28-21 at the half. With the score 35-28, the Bucs marched down the field and had one play to score. Mike Williams caught a touchdown pass but was pushed out of bounds prior to the catch. That’s a penalty, game over, awesome.
Tenn-Buffalo: After leading throughout the game mostly due to CJ2000’s dominating performance, Tenn fell behind, 34-28. Matt Hasselbeck hit Washington with a 4th down scoring pass with just over a minute remaining to win it.
Green Bay-St. Louis: Green Bay is playing some great football, and even though a Stephen Jackson touchdown run late cut the Packers lead to a touchdown, Green Bay’s defense shut the Rams down the rest of the way for the road win. Even though the roaring Green Bay contingent made you think it was a Packers home game.
Jacksonville-Oakland: The Raiders looked like garbage in the first half, but rallied to tie the score in the fourth. In overtime, the Raiders came up with a fumble by Cecil Shorts, ran a play and then Janikowski kicked a 40-yard game winner.
New York Jets-New England: In the biggest game in New York Jets history–again–the Jets caught up with New England; then took the lead with 1:37 left on a field goal by Nick Folk. The Patriots then moved downfield and got a field goal with five seconds left to put it back into a tie. After New England kicked a field goal on the opening possession of the overtime, Mark Sanchez gave up a sack/fumble and New England recovered. Game over.
Pittsburgh and Cincinnati are tied 17-17 in the third quarter of tonight’s highly entertaining Sunday Night Game.
The Cowboys? You act like I give a [comment deleted] about them. I don’t. Yeah, the Texans won too. It almost makes you think they didn’t get bludgeoned at home last Sunday night.
