MIN-CHI: Chicago 21-16 (here's hoping Chicago can make something out of last week's victory)
PHI-NYJ: Philadelphia 28-13 (No contest, the Jets simply have a major uphill battle in almost any game this season)
TEN-TB: Tennessee 14-10 (Well maybe Vince Young will give a better week than last, but who knows with him)
HOU-JAX: Jacksonville 17-16 (JAX has a decent defense, and is gonna force a lot of HOU kicks... but Kris Brown is a fantastic kicker. Thankfully I have him on my fantasy team! )
STL-BAL: Baltimore 24-21 (Two blah teams, playing two blah games)
MIA-CLE: Cleveland 21-17 (Cleo Lemon? Who? He might be a surprise, but it's a guessing game)
WAS-GNB: Green Bay 28-21 (They might have lost last week, and the Skins might look like a better team than first expected. But Farve is still Farve. Who know's what we'll get out of him)
CIN-KC: Cincinnati 21-20 (I bet this one is close. CIN really hasn't impressed me this year)
CAR-ARI: Arizona 20-14 (I don't know... Warner might be good for a backup, but he's old and probably rusty. Can he handle CAR for 4 quarters?? He's lucky it's CAR and not someone better. I bet it's a high kicking game)
OAK-SD: San Diego 31-17 (I think SD seems like a no-brainer. They really came roaring back last week in Denver. Homefield advantage, a strong win last week, and LT and Rivers... they have this made.)
NO-SEA: They both suck. SEA is 3-2... but I think last week really showed us what kind of team they are. I'll say they win it, but it's really a toss up.
NYG-ATL: New York Giants 28-21 (Giants did well last week, and Atlanta still has issues. If Eli keeps his wits about him, he could do some damage)
NWE-DAL: New England 38-28. (The Pats have consistently been scoring into the 30s every week. They are an amazing team. Last week Randy Moss ran for only 46yrds! What's amazing about that, is it shows the depth of the Patriot's offense. Brady doesn't have to just look for Moss... he has a number of weapons at his disposal, and he uses them with lethal force. Everyone is talking about how this is a big game... and the Patriots have consistently proven themselves capable the high pressure. And I just don't know about Tony Romo. He had 6 turnovers last weeks... and he's lucky, because it should have been 7! It might have been a really bad night... but for a game that suppose to scare the Pats and give Dallas a good boost, it didn't play out that way. Definitely a confidence destroyer!)

Well I was at the game today in Green Bay, and it was good to finally see the Packers win for once. Before today they were 1-3 when I've been at the game. It wasn't too pretty on the offensive side of the ball, but the defense stepped up and got the job done. Here's some pics from today:
(That's me in the Favre jersey BTW. )
Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.
I did pretty well on this one. The Pats look really awesome so far. The schedule has them in MIA next week, and then back in Foxboro to host WAS... and then it's off to Indie for another possible game of the unbeatens!

Quoting HuskyAviation (Reply 6):
A lame call by Wade, but it definitely did not cost them the game. The game had already been "costed" by then haha. Big grin It was a strange decision, because Wade had to know that NE would almost certainly score again, the way they moved the ball virtually the entire game.
I was fretting with exactly how to say what I wanted to say. In reality, it did not cost them the game, but it cost them any shot at a comeback.
