Tampa Bay 17
The Bucs D wasn't afraid of Kurt Warner and his bionic left arm. To say the Cardinals offense was stifled is probably being too nice. Edge managed to score a TD despite only having 15 yards total on 9 carries. Looking at the box score I noticed Tampa's kick returner was M. Spurlock. I can only assume that it's documentarian Morgan Spurlock. Perhaps his next film is on closet case QB's in the NFL.
New York Jets 20
What can you say about this game? Clinton Portis ran all over the place but the Redskins still could only muster up a single TD. Kellen Clemens did a good job of not sucking, so I would suspect he's secured his job as starting QB for at least another week.
OK, OK, I'll give New Orleans some credit finally. They handled Jacksonville with no problem. Brees threw for 445 yards and 3 TD's as the Saints offense has finally hit their stride this season. After dropping their first four games, they've now rattled off four straight wins, and with St. Louis, Houston and Carolina coming up, should give Tampa Bay a strong run for the NFC South crown.
San Diego 17
Adrian Peterson is a beast. His 296 rushing yards is a new single game record. Who needs competent QB's when you got this guy running for you? San Diego drops to 4-4, which would make me happier if only the rest of the AFC West didn't completely suck as well.
Buffalo is 4-4? Who knew? Marshawn Lynch had his first 100 yard game of his NFL career, and Chad Johnson pulled out all the stops with his wackiest celebration to date. The best part was when they strapped the neck brace on him, and then when he was carted into the ambulance, brilliant!
What kind of year 3000 bullshit is this? The Browns and Lions have winning records? Damn you all to hell! With the current state of the NFC and AFC West divisions, I'm preparing myself for a 7-9 team to win one of them.
San Francisco 16
Alex Smith outdueled Joey Harrington for the shittiest QB performance. Harrington's 1 interception was no match for Smith's 3, plus he threw in a lost fumble for good measure. I would pick the Niners to lose the rest of their games, but then I noticed they still have to play the Rams and Cardinals again.
Kansas City 22
The Packers win again, improving to 7-1. In other news, Larry Johnson sprained his ankle, opening the door for Priest Holmes to take over. It'll be interesting to see how he does next week against Denver.
Being a football fan in the Bay Area is about as pleasant as having gonorrhea in your eyes. For God's sake Oakland, Ron freaking Dayne put up 122 yards on you!
Wow, what a great matchup. I had no idea these two teams were even playing each other. Why didn't anyone mention it this week? All sarcasm aside I'm happy the Patriots won this game. For one, it was awesome watching Peyton getting the crap pounded out of him by the Pats defense. It was like Animal Planet footage of a crocodile taking down a jaguar. You don't see it that often, but when you do it's pretty kickass. And secondly, if anyone is going to go undefeated and finally bury the '72 Dolphins it's going to be this New England team. We all know that Indy would've eventually blown it to the Ravens or some team that is equally worthless.
I hate to say it, but I think I legitimately enjoyed watching the Cowboys win. Maybe because I hate the Eagles so much. Oh Philly, if only your offense could play as well as Andy Reid's kids inhale narcotics.
