Week 4: What Happened?

Sooooooo, did we all enjoy the PINK ACCESSORIES some of the players wore this weekend to support Breast Cancer awareness month? At least 100 players wore pink shoes. Fantastic.
Are we ready for the recap and "What to say to a dude"? I thought so!
Here we go:

...................................................................................
Morning games:
...................................................................................

CINCINNATI BENGALS VS. CLEVELAND BROWNS:

The Bengals won--it was a close game. Our numerically egocentric friend Chad "Ochocinco," caught 2 TD passes--one with less than 2 minutes left in the game--to tie the score. The Bengals finally won by kicking a field goal in OT. Browns QB Brady Quinn is still benched over ugly Derek Anderson even though they lost this game.

What to say to a dude:
"Can you believe that extra point was blocked at the end of the game? That never happens!"
"Luckily they managed to win it in overtime."
.......................................................................................

OAKLAND RAIDERS VS. HOUSTON TEXANS:
Raiders looked awful--again--as did their sloppy and inaccurate QB Jamarcus Russell. They failed to score a TD in the entire game (2 field goals). The rare scoring play, the "Safety," was seen during this game. A Safety is when someone on the team gets tackled in their OWN endzone, meaning the other teams' defense has managed to shove them backwards into said endzone. Exactly where they don't want to be.
The other team scores 2 points for humiliating them. Kinda like the Raiders have been doing to Oakland this season.

What to say to a dude:
"Can you believe Jamarcus Russell only completed 36% of his passes on Sunday? That's awful!"
................................................................................................

BALTIMORE RAVENS VS. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS:
Golden boy Tom Brady and his patriots beat the previously undefeated Ravens 27-21. He threw a TD to highly paid WR Randy Moss (Giselle) and he even ran one into the endzone. (QB's are allowed to do this, it just doesn't happen very often.

What to say to a dude:
"Wow, can you believe how many "roughing the passer" penalties there were in the Patriots game?"
(This means that when the QB has already thrown the ball, a defensive player still crashes into him. That's not allowed.)
"I guess the NFL doesn't want Tom Brady to mess up his pretty face."

.............................................................................................
Afternoon Games:
..............................................................................................

NY JETS VS. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS:
So our Jets' rookie QB (Mark Sanchez) and rookie coach (Rex Ryan) finally lost their first game of the season. The strong Jets defense was no match for Drew Brees and their high-powered offense, even though Drew Brees didn't even throw 1 TD pass.

What to say to a dude:
"Even though the Jets lost, the defense did a pretty good job of containing Drew Brees."
.........................................................................................

DALLAS COWBOYS VS DENVER BRONCOS:
The Broncos won and remain undefeated for the season. The game was tied 10-10 when underpaid WR Brandon Marshall made an unbelievable catch and ran 51 yards for a touchdown with less than 2 minutes left to win the game.

What to say to a dude:
"What a catch by Brandon Marshall. Can you believe he went over the back of Terrence Newman to make the play?"
..............................................................................................

SAINT LOUIS RAMS VS SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS:
The Niners massacred the Rams, shutting them out 35-0. The 49ers defense scored 2 touchdowns. How, you ask? One from an interception and one from a fumble recovery.

What to say to a dude:
"It really looks like 49ers defense is channeling Mike Singletary's energy from when he was a defensive linebacker in the 80's."
................................................................................

Sunday Night:

SAN DIEGO CHARGERS VS. PITTSBURGH STEELERS:

The Steelers were up 28-0 by the 3rd quarter, making the Chargers look like big 'ol losers. But then the Chargers started scoring. Unfortunately, they could never quite catch up to the Steelers and lost the game 38-28.
This week we'll be discussing the position of the TIGHT END (TE), and who better to start with than Chargers TE, Antonio Gates. No relation to Bill. Gates caught 9 passes for 124 yards and 2 TDs. That is a monster game. He is widely thought of as the best TE in the league.

What to say to a dude:
"How 'bout that Rashard Mendenhall?"
Advanced:
"The coach gives him the start this week after being benched last week and he gets 165 yards and 2 TDs. Huge game."
.....................................................................................
Stay tuned for a recap of tonight's Monday night game tomorrow! Until then...
