Well it was an interesting weekend. Watching football in the snow is always fun, but not when the home team is totally killing the visitor. Sunday’s New England v Tennessee game was just painful to watch. Thank the football Gods CBS decided to change the coverage to a better game. What a total embarrassment for my Titans. Evidently they need to practice a lot more, and add some snow in the mix for good measure too.
Carolina was a surprise. Who knew they’d take Tampa Bay on the road. Wow. Maybe they realized they weren’t dreaming and the NFL season really had started. Nice they showed up to play. But how in the world did Oakland beat Philadelphia? Holy guacamole. I also lost the pick on the Jets and Buffalo. I knew that one was going to be tough to pick, oh well. I’m not the only one who picked the Jets to win; so did a few of the guys on Fox.
My favorite game of the weekend was Minnesota v Baltimore. I was disappointed that the Viking defense didn’t step up to the plate and match the great performance of Farve and the offense. They allowed the Ravens to come back in the second half and turn a solid win into a hair raising potential loss in the last 2 seconds. That last field goal attempt by Baltimore had me on the edge of my seat, but it cracked me up to see that Brett didn’t even watch it. He had to get off the bench and ask a fellow player if they lost or not. His expression and excitement at hearing the Vikings won was beyond wonderful! What a great game.
And what about Denver. I was worried about them in the first half, but they played up to their potential in the 2nd half just bombarding the Chargers front line. That leaves 4 teams undefeated so far, Denver, Minnisota, New Orleans and Indianapolis.
So here’s the results for Week 6.
