Well, the Browns didn't play a bad game aginst the Colts in the dome, but made some dome mistakes that cost them in a 13-6 loss.
Antonio Bryant dropped a TD pass, when he got slammed by two DB's in the end zone. Plus Dennis Northcutt, for the 2nd time this year, had a punt return for a TD nullified by a penalty-a very, VERY questionable illegal block in the back penalty. But that's the breaks of the game.
A few other week two highlights-and I didn't watch as close as I normally do, as I watch the Indians drop an excruciationg loss to Kansas City today-but Cincinnati is 3-0, and Green Bay is 0-3?

Quoting Ren41 (Reply 7): It feels as if they're down by 20, when it's only a 3 point difference.
Not any more! 17-13 Pats now. It's really a tribute to the depth that the coaching/management of the Patriots put together. Randall Gay is out, and his replacement gets injured on the first play, and manges to struggle back. Rodney Harrison, the heart and soul of their defense is badly injured, Matt Light, one of their most seasoned offensive linemen goes out, and they still manage to lead. They really have controlled the game, but a few mistakes (OK, several mistakes) took points away from them. They should be up by 17 right now.

Raiders @ Eagles...
Thought this one was going to the Raiders by the looks of the first half of the game. They kept getting good field position on kickoffs (due to Aikers being injured) and they had good players on offense and defense. The game should've been theirs had Janikowski been able to kick a 37 yd FG and the Raiders had not 'shot themselves in the foot' with penalties. The Eagles had an injured McNabb and a FG kicker who could'nt kick anything outside 30 yards and, yet, the Raiders still could not come up with the 'W'.
Team Stealth...when it absolutely, positively HAS to be taken out overnight!

Quoting ANCFlyer (Reply 12): I prefer the Pats over anyone on the west coast . . .
Even the Arizona Cardinals? Damn, how long are they going to be the suckiest bunch of sucks who ever sucked? I really feel bad for them, I mean, I like good tough competition, and they just don't have it. A good deal of people thought that the Cards would be a sleeper in the NFC - well, they were right in a way, they certainly are sleeping.

I wasn't pleased with the Pats today (I don't know how many curse words I screamed at my tv during the game), but it sure feels good to get out of Pittsburgh with a W, especially after losing to Carolina last week.

Once again, so much promise, so little execution. At least we have a qb playing now who can get away from the pass rush. Problem is when they hit him he drops the ball like a pinata drop candy. It would also be nice if we gave the ball to the rb more than 10 time in the game. But when you are down 20 its not exactly the best time to run. Maybe sometime we'll figure out that we shouldn't cut lineman that go on to start (well) for other teams. The O-Line is a joke, the D-Line is decent and has some potential stars, as does the rest of the defense. But not when they get left on the field the whole game.

The Bengals continued to play well. I expected the offense to have a difficult time scoring because the Bears' defense is strong. Unfortunately for the Bears, it seems their lack of offense will cost them some games this year. Palmer went 16-23 for 169 yards and and 3 TD's. Houston should expect an ass whoopin next week.
I'm a big supporter of the Bengals. A once storied franchise, they've gone through some pitiful years. As a Patriots fan since 1970, believe me, I can sympathize. I hope they bring some major success to Cincinnati. My Aunt and Uncle have lived in Lexington, KY since 1973, and I've been to see the Reds and the Bengals back in the 1970s, and I still have a soft spot for them (not the F-in' REDS though).

Storied? With all respect, Logan, they've had about 10 good years in their entire almost-40 year existence. Yes, you have TWO over us, with two Super Bowl appearances, but the Bengels organization is hardly "storied", in my view. The "storied" part is who founded them.
Having said that, they look like the real deal, with Marvin Lewis in total control now, and with an offense that is putting up some impressive numbers. I'll reserve judgement for a while longer, but they're on the right track.
I'd like to think the Browns are about two years behind the Bengels, with the improvement Cincy has shown in the last few years.

The Giants are playing now against the Chargers and are down 28-20 in the third.
I really wish these announcers on ESPN stop calling LaDainian Tomlinson LT! LT was the best Giants linebacker of all time (and possibly the best LB in all of the NFL) Everytime they say LT I think Lawrence Taylor was on the field.
