Another bad week, but many exciting games. Let's see how I did.
Oakland @ San Diego - Sacrificial lambs. That's about what this amounted to. The Raiders are that bad and the Chargers are much better, at least this one night. Inquisitive Mind 1 - 0 for the week.
Jacksonville @ Chicago - No frozen fields and stuff, but still cold. The Bears did what they had to do and beat the Jaguars. How sad is it for the Jaguars to have played so well last year and just lay down this year. Yes, they had lot's of injuries, but someone has to play well at least one game. Inquisitive Mind 2 - 0 for the week.
Minnesota @ Detroit - They almost did it. The Lions almost got their win. The Williamses did play and they still almost did it. There is nothing worse than losing to a defeated team. Inquisitive Mind 3 - 0 for the week.
Houston @ Green Bay - Wow!!!!! This Houston team may be close. They came into Lambeau and beat the Packers. I mean, they beat them handily. That's impressive. Will it last longer than a week though? Inquisitive Mind 3 - 1 for the week.
Cleveland @ Tennessee - How bad are the Browns? Romeo, your job is in jeopardy. Better yet, just resign now. I hate saying that because I thought Crennel could turn it around for them. Just too many knuckleheads. This would be a primetime team to take over at this point because they do have some talent. Inquisitive Mind 4 - 1 for the week.
Cincinnati @ Indianapolis - No contest. Inquisitive Mind 5 - 1 for the week.
Atlanta @ New Orleans - Just when I thought the Falcons were for real. They lose this game to a team that isn't going anywhere!!!! Ryan even outplayed Brees and they still lost. D-E-F-E-N-S-E Atlanta, learn something about it. Inquisitive Mind 5 - 2 for the week.
Philadelphia @ New York Giants - I was wrong about this game, but I was happy to be wrong. I've always been an Eagles homer since the days of Harold Carmichael, and then later the Reggie Whites, Brian Dawkins, etc. Great game by the Eagles. Too much drama for the Giants right now. They have to right this ship. Inquisitive Mind 5 - 3 for the week.
Kansas City @ Denver - Like I said Denver does offense, and that's about it. Decent game, but the Chiefs showed some spunk, albeit too late in the season to matter. Inquisitive Mind 6 - 3 for the week.
Miami @ Buffalo - How quickly has it gone downhill for the Bills? Their wagons are done for the year. Chris Berman (from ESPN) should definitely stop picking them. I'm crying on the inside. Inquisitive Mind 7 - 3 for the week.
New York Jets @ San Francisco - You're kidding me right?!?!?! You go to San Fran and lose to that team? When you want to make the playoffs and are in a dogfight in your own division. (Nodding head). Sad. Inquisitive Mind 7 - 4 for the week.
New England @ Seattle - Matt Cassel showing once again that someone is going to pay him after the season is over. This guy is quietly putting up nice backup (for now) QB numbers. I expect him to cash in next year. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 4 for the week.
St. Louis @ Arizona - Blowout!!! Good for the Cardinals to finally show us that they can be for real, even if it's only against the lowly Rams. Stepping stone or fools gold? We'll see. Inquisitive Mind 9 - 4 for the week.
Dallas @ Pittsburgh - Tony Romo meet Neil O'Donnell. That's about what you looked like in this game. The Cowboys had this game won and then Romo decides to give it away. This one hurt. Inquisitive Mind 9 - 5 for the week.
Washington @ Baltimore - This was the last game that the Redskins needed if they were going to try and make the playoffs. Something about Ray Lewis and that Baltimore defense this time of year. The difference is that the Baltimore offense is playing well too. Inquisitive Mind 10 - 5 for the week.
Tampa Bay @ Carolina - (grabbing tissues and crying as I type this) I've never seen an offense treat the Bucs defense like this. NEVER!!!!! Not even when they were bad. This had to hurt the Bucs chances for the playoffs, but it probably demoralized them a little too. I know it did that to me. Inquisitive Mind 10 - 6 for the week.
