Steven Jackson For Prez

Let's recap another interesting football sunday.

Chargers @ Bills - Well the game started with a power outage. I didn't realize that Ralph Wilson Stadium even had power to begin with. I didn't even bother watching this game because frankly, seeing teams that should be a lot better have losing records is sad. One thing I did watch though was a SD punt batted out of the endzone and pinned at the 1 yd line. That was awesome. So San Diego, c'mon and get it together. And Buffalo - I still haven't figured you out so please send me a letter explaining how you're 5-1 and San Diego is 3-4.

Saints @ Panthers - Not only did the Saints lose this divisional game, but they lost Reggie Bush too. Turnovers lost the game for them (1 interception by Brees and 1 fumble by Shockey in his return from surgery). A special thanks from my fantasty team to the Panthers though for Stewart and Smith each getting a TD. The Panthers are now 5-2 tied with the Bucs for the NFC South lead.

Vikings @ Bears - 89. That's all I can say. 89. The over/under was 38.5. I thought out of any game this week, betting the under was going to be a safe bet. They more than doubled 38.5. The one thing I will mention is the fact that the Vikes had 5 turnovers. 4 INTs thrown by Frerotte. Gus, hunnie, the guys in the orange aren't on your team. Don't throw to them.

Steelers @ Bengals - Cinci held on for the first half. Half time score was 10-7. But the second got out of hand. 38-7 final score on this one. The Steelers defense was all over Fitzpatrick though, sacking him 7 times. Ouch. Chad "Ocho-Sucko" Johnson continues to be a disappointment with only 52 yds this game. Interesting fact - last time the Bengals started 0-7 was 2002 when they only won 2 games all season to finish with the worst record in the NFL that season with 2-14.

Titans @ Chiefs - LenDale White can be Steven Jackon's running mate. 149 yds and 3 TDs. How excited am I that I wasn't playing the guy in my fantasy league that has him AND Jackson as his 2 RBs. The Titans continue to dominate the league starting 6-0 and remain the only undefeated team in the league. The Chiefs continue to fail; there's really not much more to say. Titans have the Monday night game next week against the Colts - could be a the Titans first loss if the Colts who played the Ravens show up and not the Colts who played the Pack.

Ravens @ Dolphins - I have nothing to say about this game. I can't figure out either team. This was a game that most likely had fewer viewers than the Jets @ Raiders. I know I didn't watch it. Actually, I didn't even watch the highlights. So if anyone wants to fill me in, go for it.

49ers @ Giants - Another game I didn't watch. The Giants are good. The 9ers not so much. The only way this game would have made its way to my attention is if it turned out like the Cowboys @ Rams game (or The Steven Jackson Show as I refer to it).

Cowboys @ Rams - Speaking of The S.J. Show! It was 24-7 at half time; so can someone please explain to me why Brad Johnson marched out onto the field in the second half! Romo was dressed and ready to play and even with his broken finger, he probably would have thrown 3 less INTs than Johnson. Apparently all the Rams needed to do to win was get a new coach. They're 2-0 under Haslett and have shown the NFC East that they're not as pathetic as EVERYONE judged them to be. (My apologies to Dave when he reads this and yells at me for even mentioning this game).

Lions @ Texans - Another battle of epic failure. Does anyone care? Even the Lions fans I know don't care and I don't know any Texans fans. Are there any Texans fans? If so, please let me know and also, let me know if you care. Although, I think I already know the answer.

Colts @ Packers - No comment. I thought we were back in business after last week's domination of the Ravens. Apparently not.

Jets @ Raiders - The kickers made this game. With 3 seconds left in regulation, Feely kicked a 52 yd thud. But wait! Cable called a time out right before the kick. Feely gets another shot. This time makes it and we're off to OT. 2:30 left in OT, Janikowski sets up for a 57 yd field goal and makes it to win the game. Janikowski can be named Secretary of State after that one.

Browns @ Redskins - The Redskins came back and redeemed themselves after last week's loss to the Rams. Although it wasn't much of a redemption. The Browns almost came back to tie it with 25 seconds left, but Dawson's missed 54 yd field goal attempt sealed the Skins' victory.

Last but not least Seahawks @ Bucs - I think everyone in Tampa Bay and most likely the rest of the sports world (minus Andrew) was watching a different Tampa game. At one point in the football game, the crowd was cheering "Let's go Rays" this is what makes my theory complete. Congrats to the Rays, AL Champs! If you were wondering though, Bucs won. What a shock! (Sorry Jordan but if the Seahawks suffer anymore injuries, they might as well get a high school team to play for them.)

Tonight's game between the Broncos and Pats. I've got the Broncos. If history repeats itself, that should be the outcome. The Broncs lead the all-time series of this match-up 24-15.
