But here you were, heading to the New England Patriots. A frenzied fan base, a team that was in the midst of a dynasty and Tom Brady!! C’mon admit it.. you thought you had found the Holy Grail, didn’t you? C’mon… admit it.
It was another exciting Sunday in the NFL. Two games had to be decided in overtime. Check the scores to see how your team played, and prepare for Monday Night’s contest between the Titans and Jaguars.
We’ve just witnessed the first blockbuster trade of 2010. What impact will that have on the season? Will we have anymore undefeated teams after this week?
A lot happened in Sunday’s grid iron battles. The Colts fell to 2-2 after a 59-yard field goal, Baltimore ended Pittsburgh’s undefeated run, and the Giants’ defense sacked Chicago’s offense. The action continues tonight as AFC East rivals face off in South Beach.
This week was full of divisional rivalries, and tonight is no different. Check out what happened on Sunday, then sit back and watch two NFC North opponents battle to stay undefeated.
But as they have so many times this years, the Colts figured out a way. Manning hit Reggie Wayne on a 65-yard touchdown and the Colts improved to 14-0. With all the other accolades (consecutive regular season wins and wins in the decade) the Colts added one more. Indy joined the ’72 Dolphins and ’07 Patriots as the only 14-0 teams in NFL history. Hey Mercury! Peyton is in the zip code.
It’s just that New England needed a late-game gift from the Bills in week one, and the Pats didn’t learn their lesson for week two. Consider this – New England is 1-1. They have played eight quarters of football. Outside of the fourth quarter in week one, the Pats have scored one touchdown. So for seven quarters, Tom Brady and company have crossed the goal line once. No, that’s not right. Or is it? Wait for seven quarters – three at home against the Buffalo Bills and four versus the New York Jets, New England has managed one touchdown. Geez, Tom Brady better consider himself lucky he doesn’t live in Buffalo. One can only imagine what the delinquents would scrawl on his lawn about Giselle.
It is hard to believe March is here already. While it may have snuck up on us, it has certainly started off with a bang. First March has brought us a new release from the Irish rockers, U2 ( ‘No Line on the Horizon’). But March has also brought us the beginning of NFL Free Agency. I must admit, writing an article while listening to a brand new release is the way to go! Earlier this year it was Bruce Springsteen – this week – it is U2 reminding us why they remain a force to be reckoned with. I must admit ‘Moment of Surrender’ has been the first song to grab me – but many of the other songs are quickly moving up the board.
In the spirit of the Sports Guy, Casey and I thought it would be fun to both keep a running diary during the game. A running diary from both points of view – from a Giants perspective and vice versa. I have left what I wrote intact and didn’t change a thing today – except […]
