Ex-Jag helps chase down BearsVikings move to 4-0 with a 20-17 victory. The Minnesota Vikings welcomed the Chicago Bears to Mall of America Field today and boy was it a tough one. The Vikings came in with a 3-0 record while the Bears sat at 2-1. A lot of changes between these 2 that have seen each other very frequently the past 3 years in HK. I'd say the biggest addition would have to be, oh, #12 for da Bears. Tom Brady, brought a whole new dimension to this rivalry and it showed. The Vikings pretty much did anything they wanted to on offense and ran a lot of clock. It was #12 that put together quick, easy and scary scoring drives. The Vikings wouldn't be denied today as they played probably their best game of the year. A lot of things came out today. The Vikings' offensive and defensive lines are great. Chris Ivory was able to muster up 131 yards on 29 carries. Our defensive line got it done today by holding Chicago's running back to 36 yards on 14 carries. Our secondary did get a little abused, more than usual as of late but we sacked Tom Brady 5 times. 4, coming by way of Terrance Knighton, a FA we picked up in the offseason. Christian Ponder played brilliant today besides trying to change Kevin Rudolph's route that was intercepted. It was a great game played by both teams. We just made the right plays when we needed to.
Cade kicked my ass, 52-36..
That dude has legs for arms.
Saints improve to 2-2. Fr and KR touchdown seal the deal ....full summary tmrw
Nice! Very simple yet effective recap.
Falcons defeat lowly Seahawks Atlanta 27 - Seattle 7 Ray Edwards had a career high 5 sacks as the Falcons D-line continues to dominate. Seattle - This game came down to the inexperience of the Seahawks and the veteran players of the Falcons. Seattle just was not prepared to face Atlanta this week as both sides of the ball struggled for them. Their offense failed to score a single point as they could not muster a scoring drive. The Seahawks kicker missed 2 field goals and the offense line struggled to protect the quarterback. The only points the Seahawks had were off of a defensive fumble recovery. Peyton Manning and Rashard Mendenhall both had effective games. However, the offense lost a key weapon as TE Owen Daniels was injured and suffered a herniated disc.
Giants Overwhelm Washington The NY Giants faced division rival Washington in Landover, MD and took care of business. For New York, the new 3-4 defense absolutely shut down HB Wells and the Washington run game, only giving up 45 total yards on the ground. QB Shane Boals had his best game of the season, going 11 for 13 for 231 YDs and 3 TDs on the day. New York had a scare as starting HB Corey Mays went down with an strain. He did return however late in the game to close it out for New York. Mays had an amazing day, despite missing over 2 quarters of play. He managed 102 YDs on just 10 carries. His counter-part, Ahmad Bradshaw carried the load after Mays' departure. Bradshaw rushed for 80 yards and 2 TDs on 15 carries, helping the Giants to a 38-21 victory. New York's new WR Jordan Shipley led the team with 4 receptions for 89 yards and a TD, and both Holmes and Anthony hauled in a TD pass. Jason Pierre-Paul is proving that standing him up at LB was not a bad idea. He led the team in tackles with 5 solo, 3 of which were tackles for a loss including a big sack early in the game. LB David Hawthorne and CB Prince Amukamara each picked off QB Mark Sanchez during the event. Next week the Giants defense will get a tough challenge against division foe Dallas in a monumental game early in the season.
Defense OptionalRams Beat Buccs 42 - 31James Laurinaitis (missing his first game due to injury) watches as both defenses took the day off St Louis, Missouri Coming into this game the Rams had to shift around their linebackers to make up for the injured Laurinaitis. After 1 game it seems like they need to go back to the drawing board. TE Finley exploded on the Rams with a 6 catch, 111 yard, 2 TD performance tonight as the Rams were barely able to get by in this game. It seemed like the game was in had early in the 4th quarter but two quick scores by the Buccs late on made it interesting, before they were unable to recover the onside kick; something they had been successful on earlier. The Rams will entertain the 49ers next week, as the team scrambles to find a new defensive gameplan while James is out. Look for Keith Bulluck to move into the middle next week as his leadership abilities should help out with the defensive audibles that are needed to be made by the MLB of this team.
Wonder if he regrets that tattoo.
I bet he regrets getting drafted by St. Louis!
nah..he came in and was the leader of the team in his 2nd year in the league. if he went somewhere where the team had some actual talent that would have never happened.
Chargers Get First Win on Last Second FG
The San Diego Chargers finally put a mark in the win column, but it wasnt easy. Philip Rivers would start off the scoring with two early TDs to TE Kevin Young and WR Early Doucet putting the Chargers up 14-0 midway through the 2nd quarter. It didnt take Oakland long to respond though as they would real off 24 unanswered points. Turnovers continue to plague the Chargers as Mathews fumbled late in the 2nd quarter on the 5 yard line and Rivers would throw a pick 6 midway through the 3rd.
San Diego would finally answer with 17 unanswered points on the back of Mathews. Up 7 late in the 4th, Oakland drove down to the San Diego 7. After a stout red zone stand the Chargers would finally end the drive on a 4th down stop. On their next possession and with Oakland still having three timeouts the Chargers would go after the clock. Three plays later Kamerion Wimbley would light up Mathews on a HB dive and Mathews coughed up the football. Safety Michael Huff would scope it up and return it 18 yards to tie the game at 34. With 1:15 left to play San Diego did all they could to get into kicker Nate Kaeding's range. That didnt come without a cost though as Rookie TE Kevin Young would go down on the drive (initial reports have him out up to 8 weeks). After a few great passes from Rivers, Kaeding would nail home a 53 yard field goal and seal the victory for San Diego.
San Diego - 34
Oakland - 31
GG DrunkenSoldier , was definitely a classic. I look forward to our next showdown.
Fumble!!!This game was riddled with a whole bunch of turnovers for both teams. The scoring began for the Chiefs with a Jamaal Charles 5 yard touchdown run which to place before that he got a 65 yard run. That would be the only score of the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Kansas City Chiefs would capitalize on multiple keys turnovers. The first was a strip sack picked up by Jenkins and ran 20 yards for a touchdown to give KC a 14-0 lead. Another turnover would be made in the second quarter on an interception from Scandrick and he would also take it for a touchdown. The Chiefs would tack on a 41 yard field goal before halftime to make the score at half 24-0. The last scores would be put on the board in the third quarter as Moreno would get the first Broncos touchdown on a 4 yard run. But once again Kansas City would strip sack the quarterback and Studebaker would pick it up and run for another defensive touchdown. Good game biggcoug65 see you in Kansas City.
Kansas City Chiefs 31
Denver Broncos 7
LAST SECOND The Cardinals win 27-24 improve to 3-1 Coach Sdid comments We are 3-1 needed to win one coming off the bye. We needed to win one because we embarrassed the state of Arizona with or showing vs the Rams Kolb and Marshall will split reps this week game time decision on starter Nice to see Mills get to the QB he has 2 sacks so far and is improving Larry Fitzgerald is what it means to be a Cardinal Patrick Peterson is a star and is a priority in the off season Ryan Williams and Rashard Jennings are going to be asked to do more. They have been a great tandem this season TE Tyler Vowell has been better than expected Bob Sanders has been surprisingly solid at SS and the drop off from AW hasnt been that great
