NFL Week 8 Wrap Up

Yes, I know it's late, but my paper for my class comes first.

Houston @ Buffalo - After TO's 30+ yard scamper to the end zone and the way the Bills defense was playing, I got very nervous. All I have to say is that was a helluva halftime speech. The Texans came out and dominated, like they hadn't even played the first half poorly. Inquisitive Mind 1 - 0 for the week.

Cleveland @ Chicago - This was about what I expected. The Bears dominated this game and still had a lot of opportunities that they blew. They still can't seem to run the ball that well and Cutler took some licks from a mediocre Cleveland defense. Note to Lovie: Get an offensive line. Inquisitive Mind 2 - 0 for the week.

Seattle @ Dallas - How bad is this Seahawks team? They really only put up 10 points in this game (the last TD coming way after the game was out of reach). The Cowboys showed that they can beat bad teams, what can they do with good teams? I guess we'll find out next week. Inquisitive Mind 3 - 0 for the week.

St. Louis @ Detroit - This was a horrible game. H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E. All I have to say is congrats to Steven Jackson for a great game. Lots of hard running and determination. Inquisitive Mind 3 - 1 for the week.

Denver @ Baltimore - It's about time that Ravens defense woke up. They looked like the team we expected them to be all year long. Denver looked average and Joe Flacco didn't wow us with stats but he is quietly turning in a great 2nd year. Inquisitive Mind 4 - 1 for the week.

San Francisco @ Indianapolis - Talk about a close game. The 49ers came to Indy and played a helluva game. The 49ers found a way to keep the Colts out of the end zone. I still don't understand how Manning had 347 yards passing and the Colts only score 18 points. If there's such a thing as a moral victory, the 49ers should be happy. Inquisitive Mind 5 - 1 for the week.

Miami @ New York Jets - Maybe we don't get smarter the second time around. The Jets came in with the sting from the last loss against Miami and their coach calling the Dolphins offense a 'gimmick' and they lay another egg. The Dolphins jumped on the Jets from the beginning and never looked back. I would have paid money to hear the Jets locker room after this game. Inquisitive Mind 5 - 2 for the week.

New York Giants @ Philadelphia - All I really have to say about this game is as follows: 20 of 39 for 222 yards, 1 TD, and 2 INTs. That's Eli Manning's line and he probably owes the Giants his paycheck for this performance. Inquisitive Mind 6 - 2 for the week.

Jacksonville @ Tennessee - Sometimes decisions aren't that hard to make and normally hindsight is the best 20/20, but why did the it take this long for the Titans to play Vince Young? I'm not saying that Young was the reason they won, that honor goes to Chris Johnson, but the team played well for him and his 15 of 18 for 125 yards and 1 TD wasn't bad for a guy who hasn't played in a long time. Inquisitive Mind 7 - 2 for the week.

Oakland @ San Diego - All I have to say is how do you allow the Raiders to score 16 points?!?!?The Raiders. You can probably tell that my fantasy team defense wears the powder blue and gold. Arrrgggh. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 2 for the week.

Carolina @ Arizona - Imagine someone walking off the street and into your house, they eat your food, sex your woman, and then take a dump on the way out in your bathroom. Then imagine that this person isn't attractive at all (maybe that would make it better). This is what happened to the Cardinals. They let a wounded Panthers team come into Arizona and just own them. If the Cardinals didn't play in the NFC West, they wouldn't make the playoffs this year. Inquisitive Mind 8 - 3 for the week.

Minnesota @ Green Bay - You could probably hear me cheering during this game. Favre returned home and bludgeoned his former team. It doesn't get any better than 17 of 28 (kept Brett right at his pitch count, around 25 attempts) for 244 yards and 4 TDs. The only weakness on this team seems to be the defense's ability to close the door. Inquisitive Mind 9 -3 for the week.

Atlanta @ New Orleans - Great game and it lived up to the hype. If you are not already on the Saints' bandwagon, you will need to wait in line for tickets. I'm sold. They are going to be a tough out for somebody. The Saints seem to have too much on offense and a defense that can make some stops. That's a dangerous combination. Inquisitive Mind 10 - 3 for the week.

That's what I'm talking about, a good 10 - 3 week. That brings the grand total to 76-40. A few more of these weeks and I'm going to be leading the pack.
