What a crazy wild weekend of football. A few quick thoughts and a reset for the comments section. Thanks to all for the participation!
New Orleans Saints 45, Arizona Cardinals 14
The last 3 games of the regular season the Saints were bored and had little to play for. Saturday they wanted to play and when they want to things get scary fast. The Cardinals had no chance even after scoring on the first play of the game. The Saints host the NFC title game and the dome will be VERY loud.
Indianapolis Colts 20, Baltimore Ravens 3
The Colts play sound football and the Ravens self destruct as they have all year. What else is there to write? Ray Lewis did get jobbed on the endzone roughness call as all the cameras clearly show the Colts receiver with the ball when Lewis lays him out. I guess you cannot hit in football anymore. Whatever.
Minnesota Vikings 34, Dallas Cowboys 3
Everything that Dallas has been doing well they did the opposite today. They were obviously bothered by the crowd noise. A disappointing showing. The Vikings late pass on 4th down for a touchdown was a classless move and really not necessary. The Vikings defense is top level. Where was Adrian Peterson though?
New York Jets 17, San Diego Chargers 14
The only shocker of the weekend. Norv Turner has to be fired. The Chargers played right into the Jets hands by playing short dink and donk passes and running the ball non stop which they suck at. A bemusing performance by San Diego the perennial losers of the AFC. The Jets are about as scary a team right now as the Giants were in 2007/2008 season.
I will have more on the games a bit closer to next weekend.
Have a good night.
