Derek Mason Stands On His Head In New England

Illustration for article titled Derek Mason Stands On His Head In New England

Mason held on for the game's first touchdown despite landing on his head. However fellow Raven Jared Gaither was not as fortunate. The tackle was carted off the field after suffering an apparent neck injury.


Gaither was able to move his limbs, so hopefully the injury isn't too serious. As for the game, the Patriots have taken a 17-7 lead over Baltimore. Tom Brady and Sammy Morris have both rushed for scores.

-Tampa Bay leads Washington 10-3 in the second half, because God hates me, personally. The Jason Campbell bandwagon is all but empty, and the Fire Zorn (#FireZorn) movement is heating up. It could actually be significantly worse. Fortunately Mike Nugent has kept things close by missing a pair of field goals.


UPDATE: WOOO! Jason Campbell remembered Chris Cooley was on the field. They hooked up for what should have been a game tying touchdown. Then Ronde Barber blocked the extra point. Of course he did.

-Congratulations if you picked Jacksonville in your suicide pool. They opened up a 27-3 lead over Tennessee by halftime. Silky Garrard has been as smooth as ever, while Kerry Collins looks awful. Come on, give Vince a shot, it'll be fun.

-Houston is handling the Raiders, they currently lead 20-6. JaMarcus Russell started 4/5, he's since gone 3/13. Steve Slaton owners can stop bitching, he has two touchdowns so far (and only one fumble!).

-Chicago and Detroit are engaged in the day's most exciting game so far. Johnny Knox recently returned a kickoff 102 yards for a touchdown to give the Bears a 28-21 lead. Jay Cutler has sulked his way to three touchdowns (1 rushing).


-Cleveland's offense has shown a little bit of life with Derek Anderson and Jerome Harrison in the lineup. However it's the Bengals that lead 14-7. Chad Ochocinco has one of the scores for Cincinnati, unfortunately a teammate held him back from jumping into the Dawg Pound.

-The Colts and Giants are cruising past the Seahawks and the Chiefs respectively.


-And now, an email from a concerned fantasy player who hopes Drew is having a better day than he is.


No one in my ESPN league could log in to their account this morning,
so I called 1-888-549-ESPN (the fantasy hotline). Turns out that the
log in function is down so we were all locked out from changing our
starters. ESPN hasn't posted anything about this on their fantasy
site, but the WWL is fucking over every one of their fantasy players
right now.


Hope Drew has fun in Minnesota,


Never get in between a man and his fantasy team.
