St. Louis Rams - 36
Cleveland Browns - 10
The Rams coming off a tough, tough loss to the 49ers, rebounded really nicely defeating the Browns soundly by a score of 36-10. The difference in the game was the Rams stellar defense that didn't give up a TD (KR for TD was the only points), and allowed less than 100 yards of total offense for the game. This type of dominant performance was exactly what the Rams needed after being thoroughly dominated by the 49ers.
Offensively, the Rams were able to string together multiple 10+ play drives that all ended up with points, and once again was led by their FA acquisition, Devery Henderson, who had 6 catches for 173 yards, including two extremely long gains. As usual, the Rams relied on Steven Jackson who carried the ball 19 times for 83 yards, but it was the Rams' insistence to run the ball that eventually paid off.
Sitting at 4-1, the Rams are happy with their start especially with Lance Kendricks and Sam Jackson both still on the shelf. They both will be available in three weeks, and the Rams offense looks to be even more explosive at that point.
So far, the Rams are thrilled with the progression of Sam Bradford who is sitting at 14 TD's and only 5 picks. His emergence has forced the Rams to re-evaluate their prior decision to let him go at the end of the season. Right now the Rams are just excited to be 4-1.
Jets Edge Bills in Defensive BattleJets 10 Bills 7 There is Drama for the Jets once again. Coach Petty following an upset loss against the Chargers decided to go with Mark Sanchez over Tebow this week vs the Bills. Once again Petty will bounce back and forth from Tebow to Sanchez. Sanchez wasn't productive but made no mistakes, but the Tebow chants continued. The Jets beat the Bills 10-7 but there was no offense and the only touchdown was from the Special Teams. The Defense did their job again this week forcing Joe Crompton to throw 3 ints and one sealed the game. The Jets have to produce on the offensive side, as they showed last season if a key player on their defense (Revis) goes down they are up shit creek without a paddle. Sanchez/Tebow/Boudreaux/Moss need to produce!
Seahawks 38, Cowboys 7
SEATTLE, Wash. ---- The Mike Peters era started off with a bang on Sunday as the Seahawks stormed to a 38-7 victory over the Dallas Cowboys at CenturyLink Field. Russell Wilson posted a near perfect 153.0 quarterback rating and Marshawn Lynch ran for 96 yards and a touchdown in the win. The Seahawks are now 1-5 and the Cowboys are 3-3. Much of the Seahawks' season has been maligned as disgruntled coach Marcus Friske benched his starters and played rookies and seldom used backups. Seahawks' owner Paul Allen finally gave Friske his walking papers earlier this week and brought in Peters who had been coaching in the VFL, an NFL feeder league. The move paid off for Allen who made a fortune making smart decisions while building Microsoft. Peters immediately returned Wilson and Lynch to their starter roles and was rewarded by breakout games by both. The Seattle defense also did a good job of confusing rookie quarterback Tanner Hurns en route to a 10-of-26 passing performance. The game raised some eyebrows around the league as to the potential of this Seahawk team. Next week's game against the Bengals in Cincinnati will go a long way in answering some of the new questions about the team.
Saints Continue to Play Strong at Home Player of the Game: HB Darren Sproles - New Orleans - 19 Car, 108 Yards, 2 TDs, 2 Rec, 19 Yards
Panthers run over Titans. Literally! Win 41-13 The Carolina Panthers found the running game in a big way rushing for a team record 330 yards behind great performances by Cam Newton, Deangelo Williams and Tim Hightower. The Panthers ran at will as they pushed the Titans D line all over the field. Rookie WR Brandan Collins once again showed his speed hooking up with Newton on an 89 yd TD reception as well.
Packers win San Diego Shootout 45-38
The Surprising Green Bay Packers traveled West to Sunny San Diego in Week 6 to take on _MG_ and the 5-0 San Diego Chargers... Green Bay coach John Shaver knew this game would be a battle...
Aaron Rodgers was near perfect on the day, completing 21 of his 26 pass attempts for 398 yards, 4 touchdowns and 1 lone interception... The Packers needed every single yard and every completion was a big one as they just couldn't pull away from San Diego...
Packers speedy HB Leon Washington put in another solid all around day, carrying the ball 12 times for 60 yards and 1 touchdown, and also catching 3 passes for 30 yards and another touchdown...
The other offensive player that had a monster game, well, monster 1st half was WR Greg Jennings... In the 1st half Jennings hauled in 6 receptions for 161 yards and 1 touchdown... In the 2nd half however, Coach _MG_ and the Chargers Defense made some great adjustments and totally shut down Jennings, holding him to ZERO Catches...
The game was, to this point, the greatest game of the HK Season as neither team could gain any momentum throughout... Both teams were trading heymakers like heavyweight fighters in the middle of the ring all game long... Fittingly, the game came down to the wire and a Goal Line stand by the Packers as time was expiring marked the end of this instant Classic.
Great Game _MG_
