I got busy yesterday, and realized that I could not find this up, so here it is...a day late, but MNF has not yet happened and my fantasy league is still in play for this matchup period, so let's talk about it!
Two weeks in a row we've held teams out of our endzone, even though they've made it to the red zones, and we ran for 306 yards this game against TAMPA BAY!!!!
I'm not buying Super Bowl tickets yet, and I'm worried about Mike getting hurt being himself, but damn...it's exciting!

There are no such things as a pretty loss or an ugly victory, unless if you win you lose a key player.
The Jets only played the 2nd half of the game, but do seem to be a lot better than last year. Just hope Pennington can stay healthy.
The Giants got a great OT win over a division opponent who was looking pretty good until OT.

The Eagles went into the 4th quarter leading 24-7 over the NY Giants only to crash and burn. In a nutshell, the game went into overtime (tied at 24-24) with the Giants ending it with a touchdown. Final score: 30-24.
Oh well, at least the Patriots (my other team) beat the other New York team (the Jets). Final score: 24-17
Quoting CastleIsland (Reply 1): The Patriots survived a burst of offense from the Jets in the third quarter and start of the fourth and got out with another W.
At least they won... unlike the other Super Bowl XXXIX team.

Kicked the ever living chit out of Tennessee. This after eating up and chitting out the faiders a week ago. So far, so good. Want to see some competition first.
Judging from the schedule and play by future opponents to this point:
Faiders - Win (1-0)
Titans - Win (2-0)
Ravens - Should be a win, Ravens didn't exactly man handle the Raiders the way the Chargers did (3-0)
Pittsburgh - Should be a good game, goes either way, but a win making them 4-0 would be gigantic (3-1)
49ers - Win (4-1)
Chiefs - Win (5-1)
Rams - Win (6-1)
Browns - Win (7-1)
Bengals - See Pittsburgh (7-2) - If 8-0 going into this game, the Chargers are better than I thought and will win.
Donkey's - The finaly get a win in Denver (8-2)
Faiders - Who's kidding who they suck - Win (9-2)
Billy Goats - Losman is toast (10-2)
Donkey's - Take them again (11-2) - Playoff birth
Chiefs - Win, again (12-2) - Division conquered
Seahawks - A what are we made of game, if the Chargers win, they could be "that good" and headed to the Super Bowl, if they lose, it's the playoffs but a good start into next year (12-3)
Cardinals - Win 13-3, 12-4 if the game means nothing.
Odds on 12-4 record unless they implode. 9-7 would be disapointing considering who they play. If they are "that good" a perfect record is not impossible, certainly 10 or 11 wins is attainable. If they go 4-0, they could run the table, and end up like Colts. All show, but no big show. Then again, they could emerge as the next Patriots. The vast majority of the team is young and under contract for a while.
Living in obnoxious Packer Land and not being a fan... yesterday was just priceless.

Giants won! Played awful for the first 3 quarters but came back to tie it in the 4th and win it in OT. Next week the Giants visit Seattle. If both teams play like they did last year when they played each other then this game will be a very good one.

Seahawks defense just manhandled the Cardinals offense yesterday, looks like another 6-10 season upcoming unless they can get the offense line act together. What is really bad news for us in the Phoenix metro area, since they finally sold out this year we get sixteen of their games on tv, don't know if I can handle that, well I least I don't live in Detroit or Cleveland.

Quoting AirCop (Reply 18): Seahawks defense just manhandled the Cardinals offense yesterday,
Yeah, but the Hawks need to get more on their game for the next two weekends. I think they have looked pretty soft during the first two games.
Yep, and I can't wait til Deion Branch makes his debut, although Darron Jackson looked pretty good catching the bomb Hasselbeck. That might save his spot on the roster when Branch goes ahead of him.[/quote]
It will be interesting times.
