You know the drill
You know what, I'm so pissed at myself right now, I can't begin to write up anything. Automatik just kicked my ass in all three phases of our game. My players fought me all the way. So many dropped passes and bad throws by Wilson. Too many people dropping out of their zones, and no one getting passed Denvers O-line. gahhhhhhh. I did not expect to start the season 1-2.
I always thought I was pretty good at offense, but Automatik is just really, really good at defense.
You held my passing attack to under 300 yards and I couldn't do jack on the ground. I think the heavy rain played a factor in the errant throws.
People have been telling me this is rematch of Super Bowl 48, this is the first I've heard time of Super Bowl 48. I`m still waiting for the Broncos to show up for the game.
Manning was his efficient self in this one, completing 74 % of his passes for 294 yards and 2 TDs. The Broncos run game was nowhere to be seen as Seattle's LOB held Montee and co to just 72 yards on 25 carries.
The high octane offense got off to a fast start by converting their first two 3rd and long of the game, but Seattle`s defense held it's ground forcing Denver to kick a 33 yard FG. Both teams would go three and out on their following drives. 3-0 Denver
To start the 2nd Quarter, Russell Wilson went deep to his WR Kearse who out jumped 1st rookie Bradley Roby for a 24 yard gain to set the Seahawks inside Broncos territory. A healthy Percy Harvin is a major headache for opposing defenses, and coach integra14 took full advantage of by calling Harvin's number on the very next play: a 30 yard TD that had Harvin break a tackle on his way to a 7-3 lead. On the very next drive, Manning made his only mistake of the game by trying to lob a pass to his TE Julius Thomas but CB Simon had other plans picking it off and returning to the Denver 43 yard line. Seattle had a chance to capitalize on the miscue but where unable to pick up a 1st down which led to a Hauschka 51 yard FG attempt that was just short. Manning marched down the field but the drive stalled in the red zone for the 2nd time on the day. 7-6 Seattle
Wilson threw his 1st of two INTs of the game late in the half, an ill advise throw into triple coverage. With 51 secs left Manning wasted little time finding his rookie WR Latimer for a 41 yard gain and then his #1 Bay-Bay Thomas for a 14 yard TD to give his team their first lead of the game. 13-7
The 3rd quarter was pretty uneventful other than a TD by off the street Free Agent RB Seastrunk. 20-7 Denver
Wilson started the 4th hot, completting 4 straight passes on the drive. But it was his workhorse RB Marshawn Lynch who capped off the drive with a nice 15 yard run up the gut to cut the lead to 20-14. Last week's hero Emanuel Sanders broke the 12th man hearts on the ver y next drive by beating SS Chancellor for a 56 yard TD to give Denver a two TD lead. Two 4th quarter FG put this one to bed as Denver avenges last year embarrassing Super Bowl loss by beating the Seahawks on the road 34-14

GG integra14, that D-line of yours is no joke. Good luck the rest of the season.
I'm not gonna do a huge write up, but man that was intense.
San Francisco @ Arizona. Close game the whole way. SF was up by 10 at one point and in the final seconds (0:14 and counting) I ran a hurry up on 4th down with no timeouts at the 1 yardline, down 27-30. I tried to make my own team false start to just kick the field goal and send it to overtime BUT MY LINE WOULDN'T JUMP, so I had to run the play. Draw play from the shotgun and Ellington straight up the middle for a touchdown.
Arizona Cardinals 3-0, baby!
Here are some final stats.
Arizona total offensive yards: 497
San Francisco total offensive yards: 356

So both of last years NFC West's powerhouses (my Seahawks and LemonLie-m 49ers) are 1-2 where as TheNathanHolmes is 3-0. Rams haven't played week 3 yet. Its still early, but it looks like there might be a changing of the guard in the NFC West.
Well.....I have an early week 4 bye. Can't loose that at least.
This game sounds intense! Wish I had watched this!
Raiders @ Patriots
The Patriots came out strong in their home opener winning 23-16. The game was not quite as close as the score indicates however.
Oakland started the game with MJD busting a 50 yard run, and scored a TD on the drive. The patriots responded with a field goal the following drive.
Oakland struggled on offense the rest of the half throwing 2 interceptions and not converting a single third down.
Score at half 23-7 Patriots.
Oakland fought in the second half while the Patriots struggled to convert 3rd downs, but was unable to score TDs and had to settle for just 3 field goals.
Key stat: Oakland 0-8 3rd down conversions
The patriots defense looks to among the league's best but the offense continues to struggle, especially running the ball. In his first start Shane Vareen rushed 14 times for 13 yards.
Giants lost. Again.
Too embarrassed to write a summary, at least right now.
Houston 38 - Giants 27
The Texans started the game by trying to run Foster but G-men weren't having that. Houston was able to march down the field and hit Plaxico Burress for a TD. Next drive the real Eli showed up throwing a Pick-6 INT to Brian Cushing. NY answered with a FG.
Second quarter it got out of hand with 17 unanswered points by Houston. The back breaker play was Jared Crick causing Eli to fumble (first of two) and JJ Watt with the scoop and score.
Second half saw a different story. Houston stepped off the gas pedal running a cover 2 man almost completely the 2nd half. The Texans were only able to generate 7 pts to New York's 24. In the end the difference in the game was Houston's two Defensive TDs.

God, I love Housler.
God, I hate my offensive line.
Eli's confidence dropped to 37 or something after this game.
Masterfocker yay Housler! Paysinger has already been passed in rating by Okafor who is only 23 so this trade did nothing except add depth.
Also integra14 we've both got week 4 bye so I'll be heading into week 5 undefeated although I have to go into Denver so I'm not expecting the streak to continue.
Kansas City 31
Kansas City traveled to Miami to face the Dolphins in there week 3 match up after a disappointing loss in week 2 to Denver. The first half flew by as the Chiefs kept it on the ground and Miami was able to complete a high percentage of passes but both teams went into the half tied at 14. The second half saw much of the same as KC was keeping the ball on the ground and had to make an early decision on a 4th and goal from the half yard line but chose to take the points to go up 17-14. After back to back three and outs Miami was able to get in the endzone and take the lead early in the 4th 21-17. The Chiefs would put together an outstanding drive in which it saw Alex Smith get injured and in came back up Chase Daniel who would connect with Robert Woods to take the lead back with just over 2:30 left in the game 24-21. Miami marched down the field but stalled out and took the field goal with :40 left to tie the game and it looked as though they were headed for OT...nope on the ensuing kick off Knile Davis hit a hole and got tackled just past midfield. The first play for KC was a curl route to Bowe trying to just get in better range for a field goal but Bowe stiff armed/slung his corner to the ground and rumbled 40 yards for the touchdown and the win. Great game DadiBlanki again and goodluck with the rest of your season.
Alex Smith 12-17 208 Yards 2 TD 1 INT

Close game but the Ravens pull it off in the fourth quarter behind Ray Rice. Manziel had his first turn over free game but that didn't stop the offense from dropping passes and fumbling the ball.
I'll post everything later, Browns start off 0-3. Bye week next week.
Story of the game: Browns force a safety on the Ravens in the fourth quarter. Browns push up the field until Manziel throws to a wide Cameron in the end zone, when Browns Barnidge jumps and snags the ball away in double coverage and falling for a loss of two. Browns tie the game with a field goal and the Ravens drain the clock behind Flacco and rice to score the final touchdown with 30 seconds left.
Lions 44 - Packers 10
Everything seemed to go right for the Lions--just one of those days. Matthew Stafford showed none of his early-season inaccuracy, as his throws were precise and well-timed all day. Reggie Bush notched over 100 yards on the ground.
Both teams traded scores through the first 1.5 quarters, with Detroit holding onto a 14-10 lead. A two-minute drill TD just as the half expired gave them the 21-10 lead. Green Bay was without Aaron Rodgers, who's expected to miss the next 3 weeks, and today showed how important he is to their offense. Jordy Nelson & Cobb were getting separation, but Matt Flynn is no Rodgers.
Late in the 3rd quarter, Detroit went up 31-10 and ran out the clock the rest of the way. Flynn threw 2-3 INTs in Green Bay territory late in the game that led to some late-game garbage points for the Lions.
Lions have been very inconsistent this season thus far, but this was certainly a big division win against a team that will be scary once again when Rodgers heals up.
