Week 8: What Happened?

 I know, I know....the blog is a little late this week. But--I have a good excuse, I swear! I had the opportunity to appear alongside some fabulous women in the TV show, "Desperate Housewives"--which is funny because that's exactly how I feel sometimes...desperate for sleep, anyway. So, you can watch for us on the final episode before the holidays--we're in Santa hats in a choir. Either the first or second week in December. Stay tuned!

And finally, what you've all been waiting for...what the @#$$% happened in last week's games? Just a quick summary this time as it's almost time for this week's games! And, as always, "What to say to a Dude." Enjoy.
..................................................................
Morning Games: (Winners in PINK)

..................................................................
DENVER BRONCOS AT BALTIMORE RAVENS:

Denver is no longer undefeated after suffering a lopsided loss to Baltimore. Baltimore let the Broncos score only 7 points (1 TD and extra point) and that didn’t happen until the 3rd quarter. Other than Baltimore's RB, Ray Rice the player with the best day was Baltimore kicker Steven Hauschka who had 3 field goals and 3 extra points.

What to say to a dude:
"Do you think the Broncos are a fluke this year going undefeated this deep into the season?"

"The Ravens defense really exploited the Broncos offensive weaknesses."
........................................................................
MIAMI DOLPHINS AT NEW YORK JETS:
The Dolphins beat division rivals, the New York Jets for the second time this year. Jets QB Mark Sanchez threw for 2 TDs and rushed for 1 TD but it wasn’t enough to beat the Dolphins. Both of these teams cannot afford to lose anymore games to keep pace with the New England Patriots who play the Dolphins next Sunday while the Jets have a much needed week off.

What to say to a dude:
"After winning there first 3 games the Jets have only won 1 game and lost 4. Maybe it’s time for Rex Ryan to change his game plan a bit."
.........................................................................
Afternoon Games:
.........................................................................
MINNESOTA VIKINGS VS. GREEN BAY PACKERS:
Brett Favre beat his old team for the second time this season, this time was at his former home stadium, Lambeau Field. Favre threw 4 TD passes and "All Day" Adrian Peterson had 1 rushing TD. The game was a blowout in the first half with Green Bay only scoring 3 points. Brett Favre and the Vikings are now 7-1 and have a few easy games ahead versus the Detroit Lions and the Seattle Seahawks so it looks like the Vikings are solidifying a sure spot in the playoffs.

What to say to a dude:
"Brett Favre has sure proven that he is still one of the best QBs in the league."

Monday Night:
..........................................................................
ATLANTA FALCONS AT NEW ORLEANS SAINTS:
The Saints are still undefeated! The only other team that hasn’t lost are the Colts and it looks like Saints QB Drew Brees and Colts QB Payton Manning are fighting for the MVP (Most Valuable Player) of the NFL. Brees had another good game with 300+ yards passing and 2 TDs. Falcons RB Michael Turner had a big game along with Falcons WR Roddy White but unfortunately Falcons QB Matt Ryan threw 3 interceptions, one of which was returned for a TD at the end of the first half. Oopsie.

What to say to a dude:
"Who is the best QB in the NFL, Drew Brees or Payton Manning?" 
"Which team will lose first, the Saints or the Colts?"
..............................................................................
Here are some stories we're following this season:
-Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the only team without a win in the NFL
-The Tennessee Titans finally won a game.
-Oakland Raiders Coach Tom Cable is being investigated for domestic violence accusations. This was the coach who supposedly broke an assistant coach’s jaw during preseason. Chill out, Tom.

Until tomorrow!
