The saying is a day late and a dollar short, but it took me an extra day to come down after that insane victory Saturday afternoon. Before I get to the NFL post, let me put my two cents in for Saturday - come early, stay late, scream loud, wear black, and let's shock the world, eh?
Short and sweet this week, the real world was bogging me down!
Marcus Cannon - OT - Patriots (bye week)
Tank Carder - LB - Browns (lost to the Ravens 15-25) Tank got back on the field and had a tackle in the loss.
Andy Dalton - QB - Bengals (lost to Denver 23-31) The Red Rifle couldn't out-duel a rejuvenated Peyton Manning and the Broncos, as Cincy lost their fourth game in a row. Dalton threw a momentum shifting pick late on a third and impossible play that all but sealed the loss - after Manning threw for a TD in the drive immediately following - and finished 26/42 for 299, a touchdown, and the interception. He has thrown a pick in every game this season.
Clint Gresham - LS - Seattle (beat the Vikings 30-20)
David Hawthorne - LB - Saints (beat the Eagles 28-13) Hawthorne is still out injured
Jerry Hughes - LB - Colts (beat the Dolphins 23-20) Hughes had a solo tackle in the win
Colin Jones - S - Panthers (beat the Redskins 21-13) The "Redskins rule" did not hold true, but Jones did have two tackles for the Panthers in the W.
Jeremy Kerley - WR - Jets (bye week)
Marshall Newhouse - OT - Packers (beat the Cardinals 34-17) GB ran all over the Cardinals to tune of 176 yards, as the O Line performed well and even kept D-Wash away from Rodgers.
Jason Phillips - LB - Panthers (beat the Redskins 21-13) Phillips had a solo tackle in the win.
Herb Taylor - OT - Jacksonville (lost to Detroit 14-31) The Jags got beat every which way, and have looked pretty awful since showing some early season promise.
Daryl Washington - LB - Cardinals (lost to GB 17-31) Wash went without a sack, but had seven tackles and continues to look like an All-Pro.
Malcolm Williams - DB - Patriots (bye week)
What should we expect this week? Will the extra rest have done Kerley well? Can Dalton get the Bengals back on track? Will all our former Frogs in town for the big game bring TCU just enough luck and good vibes to pull off the upset?
