Colts 34 - Seahawks 17
You get the feeling that Seattle didn't have a chance, and clearly they didn't. It wasn't even as close as the score indicated, as two of the Seattle TDs came while the Colts had their second string on the field. But the one thing the Colts must work on is penalties. Some were downright stupid and could cost them dearly in a big game with teams like NE and Baltimore.
Next week, Indy has to face a dangerous Tennessee team. I say dangerous not because of their record, but because they are a division rival that is sorely desperate for a win. Those kinds of teams have a way of surprising even the highly seasoned ones, which is why I label them "dangerous".
Saints 24 - Jets 10
The Jets proved they have one of the best defenses in the league in this one. They really put the clamps down on the high-powered Saint offense. If not for the NO defense, this one would have been tied at the end of regulation. The difference was the inexperience of a rookie QB and an opportunistic defense that took advantage of the mistakes.
A lot can happen in a 16 game season. But as of Week 4, the Saints are one of the elite teams in the NFL. They get a bye next week and play the Giants in two. It should be a good one.
The Jets go to Miami, where they should recuperate from their wounds.
Pats 27 - Ravens 21
NE seems to be returning to form. Greg may not think so just yet. But they beat a pretty good Ravens defense yesterday and are tied with the Jets for first place in the AFC East.
Next week the Pats go to Denver, where they will prove that Denver is a pretender (if they do not let their guard down). The Ravens get the Bengals who are a fluke play away from being 4-0. That, too, will come to a harsh ending after losing to the Pats.
Skins 16 - Bucs 13
Because Rocket loves pain I am posting this score. I think Zorn is a goner, anyway, it's just a matter of time. But for now, he should get another week. Next week the Skins get KC, who are the bottom of the barrel in the AFC.
The Bucs go to Philly. Get ready for 0-5, that is what they get for firing Gruden and hiring a greenhorn. Gruden had lousy players playing to their max, but that wasn't good enough for the arrogant TB management. Now they have utter embarrassment, week after week.
Steelers 38 - Chargers 28
Again, it's a great day when the Chargers lose. The most overrated QB in the NFL, Philip Rivers, piled up some more stats but could not deliver a win against the underachieving Steelers. Next week, SD gets to lick its wounds on a bye week and then they get to play the overachieving Denver Broncos. It's a shame either has to win that one.
The Steelers get to beat up the Lions next week. Tally Ho.
