Browns @ Bengals
Bengals Play their best game of the season and 1st game ever palmer throws no ints. Of course I would feel better about it if it wasnt the lowly browns.lol
Browns would take the lead early in the game as QB Quinn Hits Wr Edwards who runs over the safety and goes 42yds for the td.@nd qrt would belong to the bengals as Qb Palmer would lead the team with 3 str8 scoring drives. 2 of which would come with the last 1.5min of the half. 21-7 halftime
Bengals would be able to extend their lead as little palmer got into the act with a 5yd td run. Bengals defense would play tough the rest of the game and keep the browns out of the endzone.
Bengals 34 Browns 7
The Skins would get back in the win column with a big win over division rival Philly. The Skins would get on the board quickly as the DeSean Jackson would fumble his first catch to give teh Skins a field goal.
On the ensuing kickoff, Jackson would be hit hard and give up the rock once again. Chris Cooley would catch a 17 yard play action pass for the 10-0 lead.
The Skins would play tough defense and get the ball back down the field on offense and score on a Campbell sneak. With time running out in the half, the Skins would hit Moss on a short screen. Moss would stiff arm two defenders and score with 4 seconds left on the clock for the 24-0 lead at the half.
The Skins would play conservative in the second half, adding a field goal in the third and the Eagles would get a late touchdown run by Westbrook to make the final 27-7.
Nice Game ka(h)n.
It's tough enough playing this game, let alone when I have to spot good players 10 points because the Hitstick is so generous.
I'm gonna get you once...it's just a matter of time.
NY Giants @ Denver
The Giants touched down in chilly Denver looking to extend their lofty record and take care of what seemed to be a minor blip on the MEGA schedule Saturday morning, but ran into a feisty Bronco defense ready to surprise the visiting New Yorkers.
Manning the the offense opened up the scoring early as they took what the defense gave them and made decent yards after the catch for an early 7-0 lead. Defensively the opening quarter was tight and Denver managed to squeak in a field goal to end the first 7-3 New York. However the real story was the loss of Brandon Jacobs who left the game on a cart and would not return. It would force the Giants to move away from their power running game and put the home side Defense in a better situation as they no longer had to worry about getting run over by Jacobs.
Denver would take the lead in the second on a 9 yard pass to Tony Scheffler in traffic and New York would tie things up with just 20 seconds to go to end the half at 10's.
In the third the Giant defense was inspired and forced a quick three and out giving the offense good field position resulting in a quick scoring toss from Manning to Bradshaw and a 17-10 lead.
Both offense woke up from mid way through the thrid onwards as 31 total points were scored and majors were traded like haymaking prize fighters. Alex Smith found his way in for less than a yard out to tie it at 17's to end the quarter.
New York would slice through the Denver defense and score another major to go up 24-17 and stun the Bronco's in front of a sold out, sub zero, crowd. Alex Smith would once again take the field and work his team down into scoring position and plunge in from the one yard line to tie the game with under 5 minutes to go.
The Giants moved the ball on third and long to their own 38, but then ran into a stiff Denver defense and were forced to punt with just over three minutes remaining. Alex Smith finally found Eddie Royal for a key first down conversion and moved Mike Prater into position for the go ahead field goal with under 1 minute to play.
With the Broncos up 27-24 Manning was forced to throw the ball and was picked off by Josh Barrett on fourth down to close out the upset victory for the Broncos. "It was a tough game", said coach Ross after the game. "We smacked each other around really good and it came down to the final few plays .. heck of a game and one that only tastes sweet because we pulled it out ... this is a tough game to play in and an even tougher game to lose".
The Bronco's move to 6-5 with the upset and continue to talk post season hopes where the Giants move to 8-3 and still have their future firmly in their hands.
GG ... tough loss and a tough player to lose for 6 weeks ...
Defense Flies High as Seahawks upset Rams
Defense Flies High as Seahawks upset Rams
By Keve Stelly, Seattle Review
What seemed like a pipe dream only a month ago is now within reach.
With the Seahawks 24-13 upset victory at St. Louis they have positioned themselves for a playoff run during the final month.
"It was a great hard fought victory," said Coach Dunlap. "What an outstanding defensive effort, especially there in the 2nd half."
Indeed it was. Seahawk cornerbacks would pick off three Mark Bulger passes, including a 58 yard interception returned for a touchdown in the first quarter by Ken Lucas. That play would open the scoring for Seattle after the Rams got an early field goal.
From there, the first half was a tractor pull. . .a slow moving affair where Seattle's offense would only see the ball twice. St. Louis would cap off the half with a fitting 13 play drive that would take up over five minutes and result in a one yard Steven Jackson run for a touchdown, putting the Rams up 10-7 going into the locker room.
St. Louis would look to keep the momentum going to start the second half, but they would see their drive stall at the Seattle 38 yard line setting up a 4th and 1. Coach Lou would contemplate going for it but would settle for a long field goal try, but ex-Seahawk Josh Brown would see his kick fall short.
Getting the ball for only the third time at the 5:57 mark of the 3rd quarter, the Seahawk offense this time took advantage of the great field position. They would need only four plays as Matt Hasselbeck found Deion Branch in the corner of the end zone for a 21 yard scoring strike.
Another St. Louis drive would stall inside the Seattle 30, setting up a Brown field goal to make the score 14-13 in favor of the Seahawks.
Seattle's next drive would start poorly, as Hasselbeck was was sacked on first down. But the savvy veteran would come back the very next play and connect with Branch on a crossing pattern for 15 yards, setting up a 3rd and 3. Again Hasselbeck looked like a 3 time Pro Bowler as his scrambled his way to a pivotal converstion keeping the drive alive.
Seattle would methodically work its way into field goal range, but they wanted more On a 3rd and 10, Hasselbeck found Deon Butler on a screen to the left, and the rookie from Penn State would juke his way to the endzone to give Seattle a little breathing room.
The defense would take over from there, intercepting Bulger twice, and Olindo Mare would add a field goal to make the final 24-13.
The wins sets up a showdown next week against San Fransico with the division lead up for grabs. Seattle is also just one game out of a wild card spot.
"We'll start worrying about (San Fransico) tomorrow. Right now our guys deserve to savor this victory," said Dunlap.
-Seattle's four game winning streak is the longest of the season.
-The Seahawks ran only 38 offensive plays. . .their lowest this year.
-New York, Minnesotta, and Washington are all one game ahead of Seattle in the Wild Card race.
-St. Louis won every offensive statistical category. . .except for turnovers (3).

Dolphins @ Bills
The Dolphins continue their road dominance as Pennington and Ginn carve up the Bills secondary.
Miami jumps out early after Clemons drills Parrish on the opening kickoff which sets up a 1 yard run for Brown. Bills would hold it close untill the 2nd qtr and Miami opens up the scoring fest.
Bills would win the turn over battle but Dolphins answered with conversions and field position. A late score on a Ginn 100 yard kickoff return sealed the win for Miami.
Cowboys would host the Raiders and things won't start off to well with Romo throwing a interception on his first pass to Huff. That would setup a Raiders Fg to give them a early 3-0 lead. On the Cowboys next drive Barber would break free for a 64 yd Td run to give the Boys a 7-3 lead. The raiders would answer back with a Bush 1 Yd Td run. After a Cowbosy fumble by Wr Austin the Raiders would add another Fg to take a 13-7 lead. The Cowboys would be able to get down the field before halftime to put a fg on the board to close the gap to 13-10 at halftime. In the 2nd half with both offenses strugggling the Cowboys would tie the game with another fg 13-13 after three qtrs. The Cowboys would take the lead 16-13 after a long drive with another Fg. Ware would jump infront of a Russell pass to seal the game for the Cowboys 16-13.
gg bud your defense was tough
BALTIMORE, MD - A cold, sloppy M&T Bank Stadium played host to the visiting Steelers and Coach Hoyt. The game would be, as expected, a defensive slugfest. Neither offense could get into rhythm as both QBs had tough days. Both teams punted on their opening possession. Troy Polamalu intercepted Flacco for the Steelers, and Big Ben drove the team to the redzone. Willie Parker's 2 yard run opened the scoring. The second quarter featured more of the same, with the Ravens getting an INT from Foxworth to stop a drive. The key play came late in the quarter on a Haloti Ngata INT. The Ravens had just enough time for Flacco to connect with Mason on an 11 yard TD pass right before the half ended.
The 3rd quarter again looked to be dominated by defense. Ray Rice and Willie Parker found few lanes to run through. Foxworth made his second INT on the day, outracing the Steelers for a 49 yard INT TD. Into the 4th, Roethlisberger would finally catch a break. Foxworth looked to be lined up for a 3rd INT but misplayed the ball. Santonio Holmes caught the ball behind him and raced 75 yards for a score. The Raven offense would stall, but Ed Reed intercepted a floating pass from Big Ben. The Raven offense drove to the goalline, but a Ray Rice goalline run was stoned by the Steel Curtain. The Ravens kicked the FG, leaving :30 on the clock. The Steelers would pick up a first down, but with no TOs the clock would wind out, Ravens 17, Steelers 14
GG Hoyt - Great D all aorund
GG maggs To many int's for me and you made points out of all of them. I about threw my controller on the ground when I pitched it back to Moore. I was like FUUUUUUUUCCKK!!!!
GL the rest
the Titans faced off against the Cardinals this week. It would be an uphill battle for Tennessee for the first time in a few weeks. Down at one point 14-3, Tennessee rallied behind none other then Chris Johnson. He continued his dominance of breaking at least one long run per game and helped the Titans jump in front of the Cards 27-20. The defense held up in a couple clutch situations and the Titans are now one step closer to winning the AFC South division title. thanks for communication wolf, sorry we couldn't actually play this one out.
