And then there was one.

The Kansas City defense did its job to help the Chiefs remain the only unbeaten team this season with a close win against the Texans. The team’s 7-0 start is their second longest unbeaten beginning (they went 9-0 in 2003) which gave new head coach Andy Reid something to be VERY happy about:



Thank goodness he wasn’t caught twerking.

Hey, booger bear? Any video of you dancing we can share???

This one went down to the wire, with a game ending strip by Tamba Hali (seriously, what a GREAT name!) to return the ball to the Chiefs allowing Alex Smith to take the game out on his knee. The game also showed the debut of local Houston QB hero Case Keenum who in his first NFL start in front of a truly home crowd, threw for 271 yards and a touchdown. Unfortunately the offensive line let him down with five sacks coming his way and he did have a fumble however, it looks like the QB woes of the Texans could be over. Maybe. Hopefully. We’ll see. Still, their offensive line took a huge hit with the loss of Brian Cushing, out for the year with a broken leg and torn LCL.

The other unbeaten going into Sunday didn’t fare as well, with the Broncos losing to the Colts in Peyton Manning’s first visit to Indy by walking through the visitor’s entrance. The Big Game had everything in terms of pre-kickoff hype, starting Tuesday with some inane commentary courtesy of Colts owner Jim Itsay over Peyton’s departure (among other things) down to the game time decision to keep the roof and windows open at Lucas Oil Stadium to “welcome” Manning home (who always preferred them closed for home games.) All teams have off games, and this truly was the Broncos turn, despite impressive numbers by ‘ol #18 who went 29-of-49 for 386 yards and three touchdowns, Manning really didn’t play well, and though this is hard to say for a dedicated Broncos/Manning fan to say, some of his throws looked rather wimpy. Rot roh…hope that’s not a symptom of some bad stuff to come. It also didn’t help that the Broncos had some ridiculously stupid penalties, including a roughing the passer flag against Kevin Vickerson for a chest bump against Luck. Oh, and here’s to Indy kicker Pat McAfee for a sensational hit against Trindon Holliday on a punt return which not only knocked Holliday out of bounds but drew McAfee in for a random NFL drug screening yesterday. Random. Snort.



We also had some really good, close but injury prone games, with Cincinnati managing to go two weeks on the road in a row without collapsing to win against the Lions with a field goal in the last seconds of the game. Despite a huge game out of Megatron with nine catches for 155 yards and two touchdowns, Cincinnati threw their own muscle around to get this one, with superior special teams play and a stellar day for Andy Dalton who was 24 of 34 for 372 yards, with three touchdown passes for the second straight game. He went INT-less and ended the day with a career-high 135.9 QB rating. Gronk’s return to the Patriot lineup got overshadowed by the NFL Rule Book when a new rule put in place this year (something or another about pushing your own teammate somewhere), gave the Jets new life in OT and Pretty Boy and company a loss on the road. Belichick naturally got all bent out of shape (something or another about the said pushing not being able to take place in the second level apparently) but the refs unanimously enforced the call. This gave the Jet’s the chance to run the ball into kicker Nick (Folk) Hero’s sweet zone to set up the game winner.



OMG, peeps! The Steelers are on a winning streak! Of course I didn’t take them against Baltimore so that’s why they decided to get all their ducks in a row and pull one out of their …..’s. The teams had their usual defensive slugfest against each other, capped off by the game winning field goal from the 14-14 perfect thus far kick record of kicker Shaun Suisham. This ended up a typical Steelers-Ravens contest featuring two physical teams slugging it out for four quarters. Pittsburgh looked like it had turned back the clock as they rediscovered their running game. Some clutch fourth-quarter throws by Roethlisberger led them to their second win of the season. While Pittsburgh won ugly, Baltimore dropped a critical game to fall to 3-4 on the season. The Ravens' offense just doesn't look playoff-caliber. Could Mr. Flacco be a “One ‘n Done?” In DC, Devin Hester returned an 81-yard punt for his 19th-career special-teams touchdown (tying Deion Sanders’ record), which proved to be the only real bright spot in a Bears loss to Washington, especially seeing Jay Cutler will be out for six weeks with a groin tear suffered on a sack play. Seeing the player that hit him goes 333 pounds, he should be thankful that’s all that’s injured. RG3’s rehab work on the ground continues, what with his 11 scrambles for 84 rushing yards on an 18-29, 289, two TD and one INT passing day in the much needed win after going 1-4 to open the season.

Geez, Seattle is lookin’ good. Doesn’t matter if they’re home or on the road, the winning is easy and especially so on their Thursday night win over the Cardinals. It was vintage Wilson out there, cutting and scrambling eight times for 29 rushing yards on a night he finished18-of-29 for 235 yards and three touchdowns. The offensive line appears to be the only bad spot, allowing three sacks on Wilson with him losing possession twice. Win on the road, win in the playoffs as they say. Despite not having receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White in the lineup, Matt Ryan threw for 273 yards and three touchdowns to help Atlanta beat the Buc’s 31-23 to creep to 2-4 in the NFC South putting an end to their three-game losing streak. Tampa Bay didn’t exactly roll over, dismantling a Ryan led 24 first-half points before taking themselves out of the game with penalties including five 15-yarders (yup – almost a whole field length) for everything from facemask calls to personal fouls to calls for unnecessary roughness.

You have to wonder how long the Chip Kelly experiment in Philly is going to last. Really? You’ve got the ball in Cowboy’s territory on a fourth and 1, 14 seconds left AND a timeout and your choices are going for it to move the ball down the field to hopefully score and oh, I dunno, maybe at the very least you have to punt it back. But NOOOOO, you decide to kick a 60 yarder that of course was missed? Kelly’s ineptitude wasn’t the only for the day, as you’d also have to figure in the performance of Nick Foles who went 11-of-29 for an abysmal 80 yards. Remember his great week from last week? It met bad week from this week. Which means next go around we should be able to see which of the real Foles shows up. The loss gives the Eagles their ninth straight loss at home, a franchise record. Flags and fists were flying in Carolina Sunday as the Panthers beat the Rams. St. Louis was flagged for five personal foul penalties and lost DE Chris Long via da boot due when some emotional fisticuffs ensued (more than a dozen players were involved). And cuz that wasn’t enough, the Rams also lost Sam Bradford, whose is out for the year with a torn ACL. (Cue the “Tebow! Tebow! chants). Apparently there was also a little pre-game bad blood thrown around between Carolina’s Steve Smith (previously voted the NFL's “Funniest Trash Talker” as well as one of the players they would least like to fight) and Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins in the Twittersphere where Jenkins called out not only Smith but his wife. Ah, NFL newbies. *shakes head* For the cats, Cam Newton seems to have gotten his groove back, completing 15 of 17 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown, to go to 35 of 43 for 464 yards with four touchdowns and no INT’s for the past two weeks of play. Here, take this, Jenkins:



May we all just take a moment and breathe in the essence and intelligence that is Jim Harbaugh? Here is Jim’s take on his teams’ preparation against the Titans. The 3-4 Titans. The Titans who until Sunday were without their starting QB for the two weeks prior to the game. The Titans the Niners handily (and then some) beat 31-17. Ready?

"This was a big game, and we were treating it like the biggest game of the season," 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said. "It was our next game. This was Game 7 for us, and we were treating it like Game 7 for us, and we were treating it like Game 7 of the World Series or Game 7 of the Stanley Cup. Now the next game will be Game 8."

Here…this probably explains it better:



Let it be duly noted that their next game – or “Game 8” – is in London. Against the Jags. Now, wouldn’t THAT be hilarious…if the Jags were to upset the Niner’s in London. Hmmm…could happen. Speaking of which, the Jags got beat again, this week by San Diego in a final of 24-6, despite Chad Henne going 23-of-36 for 318 yards and an interception. Ah yes, couple-half-dozen TD’s are all that’s missing in that mix o’ stats. Think the Jaguars will emulate Grambling State and refuse to travel to future games? That is, once they’re back from their NFL sponsored trip to London.

When Ryan Tannehill opened up the game against Buffalo with a pick-six, I’m sure Thad Lewis, the undrafted starter for the Bills playing in his second game must have drawn a huge sigh of relief. Happy in the fact that Tannehill was playing as he usually does – and did – all afternoon in fact. With not only the pick-six but an end zone interception and the decisive strip sack that proved to be what was needed to set up the game winning field goal, Tannehill had a rough day indeed, ending the day on four consecutive incompletions on their last stand with the ball. What’s that you say? Never heard of Jarrett Boykin of the Packers? Well, get used to the name seeing that the Pack has to go forward without James Jones or Randall Cobb. On, and now we can add Jermichael Finley to the injured list after a tremendous helmet-to-helmet hit took him out of the game via stretcher and in the hospital with a bruised spinal cord. Playing for Cobb, Boykin was immediately effective, catching eight passes for 103 yards and a touchdown. Mr. Rodgers played well in his rain soaked neighborhood, going 25-of-36 for 260 yards and three touchdowns.

No wonder it’s cold everywhere – hell musta froze over because, folks, THE GIANTS WON!!! THE GIANTS WON!!! THE GIANTS WON!!! Luckily for them, they were playing Minnesota who put Josh Freeman up as QB. Oh, and…ELI DIDN’T THROW AN INT!!! Buy your lotto tickets today, folks.



Moving onto the standings for our players for Week 7 in which we see scared&stronger as the formidable leader this week with an outstanding 10/15 correct picks! Oh-rah!

Woo Hoo! Congrats, scared&stronger!

We had a four person tie with 9/15 correct, and based on the tie-breaker, we have two players – last week’s winner (and thrilled to death Chiefs fan) booger bear along with kernel tied for second, MissesJai in third and Yours Truly in fourth place. Then there’s our gaggle of 8/15 correct pickers, with purplejacket4 leading in fifth, Yme in sixth, nowiknow23 in seventh, lingerdog in eighth, dirk pitt in ninth and holding onto the last spot in the Top Ten, is sportsfan.



The race for Champion is getting tighter and tighter with each passing week. MissesJai retains her first place hold with 68, while there was a wee bit of shifting for second place, where purplejacket4 with 66 jumped up one place to claim. JustmeVa also had a small jump up from fourth place last week to take third this week with 65, while tesla did a bit of a slide from second to fourth place also with 65. Yme remains in fifth with 65 points, while kernel with 64, sportsfan with 62, lingerdog with 61, and ray-ray with 60 all maintain their fifth through ninth places respectively from last week. Our pal booger bear has moved up to the Top Ten with her tenth place spot thanks to her pick of Indy over the Broncos.



This race is getting tighter and tighter, folks, so remember to practice safe picking and don’t forget your tie-breakers!
