What a game. The last quarter was the highlight. I love games that come down to the last few minutes. Harrison had a crazy 100 yard interception run. Did you see him laying on the ground 5 minutes after? He was so out of breath.
Anyways, NFL season is over. On to the NBA.
Ravens – Steelers
I think the Steelers can take this. Although the Ravens have an amazing defense, the Steelers offense is a notch better than the Ravens. I say Steelers 28 – Ravens 23
Eagles – Cardinals
Arizona made it this far? Superbowl-less Eagles will beat the Cardinals, but the will not win against the Steelers in the Superbowl.
Side note: if the Eagles and Ravens face off in the Superbowl, it will be renamed the Ghettobowl.
The Giants did not play their best. Eli didn’t throw enough completions. We made dumb plays when we went for the fourth downs. In the end McNabb and the Eagles played better and dominated defensively. It’s official. The Eagles are 1 game away to the superbowl.
I didn’t care much about the Giants game, since we already made the playoffs and clinced home field advantage, so I was mostly interested in the Cowboys-Eagles game. I despise both teams, but more the Cowgirls than the Eagles. The Eagles defense completely obliterated the Cowgirl’s chance of going to the playoffs. Romo was seen crying on the field with this held dugg into the ground after a fumble and recovery by the Eagles.
What a good Sunday for the NFL!
We were looking good in the first quarter. Then the second quarter they were looking good. We stepped up in the second half to come back in the game, but then they came back. The Panthers almost had the win with their final attempt to seal the deal before overtime with a 50-yard field goal against some strong winds. It was not good.
In overtime it was Giants domination time!
I can’t wait for the playoffs!
What a great game that was! I am so glad the Ravens beat the Cowgirls. “America’s Team” is no longer the team that everyone wants to see. It was such a historical game and night, yet Romo was on the ground more often than usual. TO could not touch the ball as much as he liked. To all my Cowgirls fans out there: BOO YAH!
First and foremost, the Giants need to set up on their offensive line. Eli Manning was sacked so many times that I’m surprised he wasn’t injured. Secondly, can our receivers get open and catch the ball. Thirdly we need Plaxico Burress back. I know I said that we don’t need him, but that was when we were winning. Now we are losing. We need to clinch the NFC and get the first round bye. Next week is a must win against Carolina.
The Ravens lost to the Steelers with an extremely controversial TD. The ball was caught before it entered the TD zone but the catcher’s feet was in the zone. It was originally called down at the 3 yard line but then it was reviewed and overturned to a TD. That really sucks for the Ravens.
We are in the toughest division: the NFC East which consists of the Cowgirls, the Eagles and the Redskins. With our win against the Redskins today (Nov. 30, ’08) solidified our NFC East #1 spot. The Redskins are in big trouble now. They are behind the Cowgirls who has a chance for a playoff wildcard spot.
In other news, Plaxico Burres wins the award for the biggest idiot of the week award.
The Giants are #1 in the NFC East, the Jets are #1 in the AFC East. Both are highly to be int he playoffs, but will they both make it to the Superbowl? Subway Superbowl! Man that’d be awesome for New Yorkers!
In other news, the Eagles got massacred by the Ravens. The Redskins barely beat the Seahawks. It was a must win for them because the Cowgirls easily (and unfortunately) beat the 49ers.
Thanksgiving weekend is going to be fun. Giants come to FedEx field!
Yesterday had to be the probably the best weekend for the Giants. Why? The Redskins lost to the Cowgirls making both their records 6-4 while the Eagles didn’t lose or win (it’s been 6 years since an NFL tie game) leaving them with a record of 5-4-1. The NFC East is the only division with all teams above .500. THere is a very strong probablity of us winning the NFC East, inshaAllah. Although I am not going to jump to the conclusion that we can capture the division. There is still 6 more weeks of games. We still have to play the Cardinals, Redskins, Eagles, Cowgirls, Panthers and last Vikings. It’s an extremely tough finish line to the playoffs, but I am confident we will come up on top.
What happened to the Redskins? The Cowgirls suck. Tony Romo threw 2 int’s and barely made many passes. They aren’t going to the playoffs, but if they do there is some massive cheating in the NFL. The Redskins don’t have a really hard schedule left. They play us on Nov. 30. Can’t wait for that game.
The Eagles and Bengals played to the NFLs first tie in 6 years. Tie games are usually really exciting when its broken and one team wins, but not in the NFL. When overtime is over, it’s over, unlike other sports.
In other news, the Tennessee Titans are undefeated. Looks like the New England Patriots are not the best team in NFLs history. Detroit is probably the worse city to be in both economically and NFL wise. They have yet to win a game. Their city is also dying and the last I heard of its Mayor or ex-Mayor he was on trial for corruption. Hopefully in 2009, Barack can help Detroit and the rest of this country.
