NFL Week 5 Wrap Up

A decent week, but let's take a look at the games.

Cleveland @ Buffalo - I said that this would be the game that TO finally shows the Bills fans why they are paying him $6M a year. How wrong was I? This was the absolute worst game of the season by far. It looked like two Pop Warner teams were playing. And to make matters worse, I picked the wrong team. Inquisitive Mind 0 - 1 for the week.

Dallas @ Kansas City - Talk about throwing up in your mouth. How in the halibut did the Cowboys even make this game close? I'm sorry, they should have lost this game to a team who hasn't won a game this season and could probably continue that streak for the rest of the year. These Cowboys are really in trouble for the rest of the year. They had to beat Kansas City in overtime. Inquisitive Mind 1 - 1 for the week.

Minnesota @ St. Louis - Well, no 100 yard game for AP, but a big win for the Vikes. Inquisitive Mind 2 - 1 for the week.

Oakland @ New York Giants - This was outrageous. Eli Manning had 173 yards and 2 TDs by halftime. This was a mercy killing. The only thing that surprised me is that the Raiders actually scored. Inquisitive Mind 3 - 1 for the week.

Tampa Bay @ Philadelphia - Donovan looked great in his return from his rib injury. Jeremy Maclin seemed to be the benefactor of his return as they ran the score up on the Bucs. Inquisitive Mind 4 - 1 for the week.

Pittsburgh @ Detroit - What's going on with the Steelers? I mean they should have run the score up on a Detroit team without Matt Stafford. Duante Culpepper looked ok, but this game shouldn't have been close. The Steelers seem to miss Willie Parker (who is practicing this week and should play) and the defense has got to get a pulse. This is going to be a long season for them if they don't turn it around, and soon. Inquisitive Mind 5 - 1 for the week.

Washington @ Carolina - Can we just blow up the Redskins and call this a season for them? This loss had to hurt badly since they were leading 10 - 2 at halftime. Things were looking good since the Panthers simply forgot how to play football for 3 quarters. Then, it happened, the Panthers caught fire and scored 11 points in the 4th quarter (7 points in the 3rd) and ended up beating the Redskins 20 - 17. The Jim Zorn watch is definitely on and I expect him to add former to his present title within the next 3 weeks. Inquisitive Mind 6 - 1 for the week.

Cincinnati @ Baltimore - This one hurt. The Ravens played pretty well and then let the cardiac Bengals come back. I will say this, Cedric Benson is quietly playing like a top running back. He played like a little b**** in Chicago, but he is running like someone is chasing him in Cincy. If he keeps this up, the Bengals are going to be a hard out for a lot of people. Inquisitive Mind 6 - 2 for the week.

Atlanta @ San Francisco - I told you Shaun Hill can't continue to win games without Frank Gore. Well, it was him and the fact that the 49ers defens gave up 210 yards to Roddy White. 210 yards to Roddy White. Write that one down, that's almost half a season for him right there. Inquisitive Mind 7 - 2 for the week.

Jacksonville @ Seattle - What happened? The Jaguars just didn't show up. What did McNabb and Hasselbeck take to heal their ribs and then play like this? Hasselbeck threw for 241 yards and 4 TDs. Whatever it is, the Seahawks need him to continue to take it. They have a tough schedule the rest of the season. Inquisitive Mind 7 - 3 for the week.

Houston @ Arizona - This looked like a blowout until the 2nd half. The Texans battled back to make it close but weren't able to get in the end zone with 4 downs. That's a professional football team that couldn't get 2 yards on 4 downs. You deserve to lose that game. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 3 for the week.

New England @ Denver - GREAT GAME! The Patriots seemed off. Brady missed Moss and Welker in this game which would have turned the outcome of this one in favor of the Patriots. With that said, the Broncos played a helluva game. They got behind early but the defense kept the the Patriots from running the score up. In the end the Broncos came back and sorta shocked the world with this win. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 4 for the week.

Indianapolis @ Tennessee - 0 for!!! Just one question for the Titans, why isn't Vince Young playing? I mean c'mon. Collins sucks and their defense can't stop anybody from scoring. All of this hateration has to stop. Free VY!!! Quietly, Peyton Manning has thrown for over 300 yards in the first 5 games of the season. Think about that ladies and gentlemen, that's 1500+ yards in the first 5 games. Inquisitive Mind 9 - 4 for the week.

New York Jets @ Miami - Another good game. The wildcat killed the Jets. That defense looked terrible and Rex Ryan echoed that after the game. I feel sorry for the team that the Jets play next week. The Dolphins were able to run whenever they wanted and Chadd Henne looked great. He has a good arm, but we'll see how long he can ride the wave. I doubt that happen for long. Inquisitive Mind 9 -5 for the week.

Well, this isn't really helping me catch anyone, but we still have a lot of weeks left. That leave us with a 48 - 28 record for the season.
