The officiating in this game was an absolute disaster. Just brutal. It was as if Drew's column earlier today sprouted legs and was playing out on our televisions. There was a point where it really looked like things were going to boil over and shit was going to get out of hand. Shit did not get entirely out of hand,…
The Steelers slowly bludgeoned the Jets. It was over well before, but Isaac Redman trucked what was either a terrible or exhausted defense in the fourth quarter and this one was never really in doubt. Mark Sanchez followed up his fine season opener in his usual characteristically inconsistent manner. And Ben…
Yeah. Not a whole lot went right for the Titans. Uh, no fumbles! That's pretty cool, right? Whatever. Chris Johnson had eight carries for 17 yards and everything is pretty sad on the Tennessee side so let's just not talk about the actual game. Here's something else to talk about: The replacement refs messed up again.
Yowza, the Cowboys got owned in Seattle. Russell Wilson outplayed Tony Romo, Marshawn Lynch rushed for 122 yards...oh, let's just let GIFs tell the story.
Jeff Fisher gets the first win of the Jeff Fisher era in St. Louis after watching his team come back from a 14-3 defecit after the first quarter. Sam Bradford threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns and captained the St. Louis comeback.
At Least Robert Griffin III Is Exciting: Griffin III also ran for two…
The Jaguars did not have a good game. 117 total yards on offense is, like, the definition of not having a good game. Here's an optimistic post game quote from a Jacksonville player:
The only thing wrong with this game was the lack of John Skelton, who was out while he regrows his ankle from scratch. Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski made four field goals but missed a game winner from 42 yards out in the final seconds of the game.
Some primo running in this one—and actually some primo passing too, and generally good football playing all around. It's like Sean always says (this morning), "it's these god-awful looking games that become the most compelling." This one wasn't the most compelling, but if you like long runs to the end zone, well, do I…
A dogfight between cities on I-95 that just plain hate each other. It showed:
Reggie Bush rushed for 172 yards and two touchdowns. Reggie Bush rushed for 172 yards and two touchdowns. In addition to what you see below, Bush had a 65-yard touchdown-scoring run. After throwing three interceptions, Ryan Tannehill had no turnovers today. Progress!
Hey, Andrew Luck was pretty accurate, and drove the Colts down far enough down the field for an Adam Vinatieri field goal with eight seconds left in a very well-choreographed drive. And Christian Ponder was accurate too: 27 for 35 for 245 yards and two touchdowns.
This wound up being a wild one—32 points scored in the fourth quarter alone, 25 of those by the Giants, who trailed 24-13 at the half. This was a fantasy football wet dream, too. Eli threw for over 500 yards and three touchdowns (three interceptions, though); 199 of those yards went to Nicks.
