I was just getting ready to throw some love on Clinton Portis myself. Costumes aside, he's an absolute beast. He's a better blocker than any featured back in the league (Edge included) and if the Redskins throw a pick, odds are Clinton's going try to send the interceptor to the hospital. Jason Campbell is also playing quite nicely and my Skins are miraculously winning at the half. Now it's time for Gibbs to install his patented "sit on the lead and call a bunch of timeouts in the third quarter" offense.
Update: TO just scored. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Dallas 14 - Washington 10
• Wacky field goal shenanigans. Horse Balls Anderson wasn't his usual Hall of Fame self but Celeveland had just enough mojo to knock off Baltimore 33-30 in overtime. Did Baltimore really score 30 points? Wow, must have been one of those rare games with ten field goals.
• Unleashing the Dragon! Rextasy has been "managing the game" which means that it's only a matter of time before he spreads his seed all over Seattle's supple defense. Cedric Benson is playing pretty well, just to keep people on their toes. Chicago 17 - Seattle 17
Update: Seattle starts the half with a 49 yard touchdown drive. Seattle 24 Chicago 17
• Upset watch. Somehow the Steelers are actually tied with the Jets. The NFL is a lot like Ben Roethlisberger, big, unwieldy, and difficult to understand. New York 13 - Pittsburgh 13
