Post game summary here
Brady was perfect, Welker was tough and the defense was stingy. The Bills fought hard, but just not enough firepower in Buffalo to hang with the Pats.
Chargers get the win but take a bigger loss with sproles getting hurt for 3 weeks, most likely ruining thier season in the playoffs
Ravens win over the Bears 40-35 under controvesy.
Dawan Landry was player of the game with 3 picks, nearly returning 2 of them. Joe Flacco threw 3 picks but was able to come up big in the 4th throwing 2td's to L.J. Smith.
The Ravens are now 10-4 and can wrap up the AFC North with a win over the Steelers in Week 16.
week 15 Seattle - Tampa Bay
Only the scores were different otherwise this was almost a carbon copy of last week. Seattle gets up but early, shuts it down and wins close.
'Hawks win the toss, and drive 9 plays 70 yards capped by a TD toss from Hasslebeck to FB Schmidt. (Heck thats even the same opening line from last weeks recap)
Josh Freeman gets the ball on his own 40 curtesy of a a KOR that almost went for 6, shoestring tackle of KR Smith saves a tie. Freeman wings the 2nd down pass 10 yards over his receivers head deep and safety Babineaux loses it in the sun, or something, and somehow misses the int.
Not to worry, 'Hawks get the 3-out, and back to work, this time its a quick drive to the 20 before they stall and settle for a FG. Seattle came out hitting on all cylinders. HB Arrington had a 30 yard scamper to setup the 3 pointer.
Another stop thanks to a drop by Winslow on a tough hit. Not good, at this point Tampa throws the coverage gameplan in the trash and opens envelope #2, with their superior corners they gamble that they can jam Seattle and shut down the middle for pass or run, while pressuring Seattle. aside from about 4 plays the rest of the way they did too.
But this time, Hasslebeck hits his 3rd step and lets that ball fo to WR Deion Branch in single press coverage, Branch catches in stride, and goes 62 yards,
Capped by an open field shake that faked one defender and somehow broke away from another. Some nice agressive stick-handling from myself, but I traded one Defender for another and somehow Branch pulled out of that one for the score.
17-0 Seattle, after 1.
Hawks stop Tampa again and drive for a 4th score just before halftime, this time its backup HB Forsett from 5 yards out on a 3rd and 4. I think Tampa guessed pass. Hasslebeck was out after a nasty hit from Gaines Adams. so Wallace kept it on the ground.
Haltime: 24-0 Hawks.
2nd half here come the Bucs. a long drive kept alive by some really nice plays run and pass. and some over plays by Seattle.
Ernest Graham scores from 1 out, on 3rd and goal, but the 2 point conversion would fail.
Now Seattls is in rin mode, trying to sit on the lead and just eat clock. but this team is not built for that. and it showed.
Teams trade punts in the 3rd, Freeman throwing 2 ints that Seattle didnothing with. Then Tampa scores again in the 4th early. Setup on a Hasslebeck int. (He threw 2, his first 2 pick game in 4 weeks) both were stupid, non ready, one was a missed button, but both just happened to be to Ronde Barber, who I was intending to avoid.
This time, no screwing around, Seattle faces 3rd and 4 and they call a pass to make sure and keep it away from Tampa. First down, and Forsett dives to keep the risk down, but of course effing Madden rewards any dive with a fumble, and then went ahead and didnt let me challenge. No challenge button at all.
All good. But Tampa scores again. Short field and Freeman breaks a sack, dodges the 2ndman and finds Deashean Jackson for 6!. They go for 2 again, down 5. and its BROKEN UP!
24-19 Seattle. and here comes the onside.
'Hawks get it and take a knee.
GG Beazus, so close man, Freeman gets another year of progression and you will be looking good.
