Live blog at Awful Announcing of Dallas-Philly at 5pm Pacific. Go on back to watching New England-Indianapolis after this. I’ll keep it short.
Vikings 35, Chargers 17 – Not only did Adrian Peterson set the single-game NFL rushing record with 296 yards, I’m pretty sure he managed to out-gain the entire San Diego offense on his own. The highlight for the Chargers was a 109-yard TD return of a missed FG by Antonio Cromartie. The entire second half was an amazing display of Norv Face.
Lions 44, Broncos 7 – More on this probably during the week, but as for now, the result can be summed up like this: [EXPLETIVES DELETED] and Patrick Ramsey saw game action. [PROFANE INVECTIVE.]
Bills 33, Bengals 21 – Chad Johnson had a severe injury towards the end of the game, and the Cincy secondary basically guided Buffalo towards the end zone all day.
Saints 41, Jaguars 24 – Drew Brees throws for three TDs (to Reggie Bush, David Patten, and Lance Moore) while Quinn Gray throws for two TDs and two picks. Maurice Jones-Drew adds a 100-yard kickoff return for a score before the Saints pull away.
Titans 20, Panthers 7 – Vince Young can throw for as few yards as possible if LenDale White is going to rush for 100 yards and the Titans defense keeps devastating QBs, forcing out David Carr.
Bucs 17, Cardinals 10 – Super-stingy defense by Tampa Bay seals up a win by limiting Arizona to 195 total yards of offense while Jeff Garcia does serviceable yeoman’s work in tossing one TD to Joey Galloway and Earnest Graham gets 100+ and a TD on the ground.
Redskins 23, Jets 20 – The New York Jets don’t quite understand this football thing. Giving up 196 yards on the ground to Clinton Portis isn’t going to help you win, yet somehow they extended the aggravation of their fans by getting a tying drive to send it to overtime, won the toss, and couldn’t do anything with it.
Packers 33, Chiefs 22 – Everyone’s favorite gunslinger throws for two TDs and two picks, but his picks weren’t as dangerous as Damon Huard’s, who had one returned for a touchdown by Charles Woodson.
Falcons 20, 49ers 16 – No Frank Gore, no chance to win for San Francisco. Alex Smith, hurt, threw three picks and Atlanta rushed behind Warrick Dunn for the win.
