Week 2 Sunday NFL Recap

Posted: September 20, 2010 in Uncategorized

Hello sports world!

Week 2 brought us tons of exciting action throughout the NFL. From Randy Moss’s amazing one-handed catch to the countless quarterback controversies, Sunday was as action-packed as an episode of Jerry Springer.

The Steelers moved to 2-0 with a routine win over the Titans. Dennis Dixon was knocked out of the game with a knee injury, which brought the Steelers to their 4th string QB Charlie Batch due to the suspension of Ben Roethlisberger and the injury of Byron Leftwich. It will be interesting to see who lines up under center next week for the Steelers.

One of the biggest stories of the week was Michael Vick starting his first game since before his suspension and prison time. Vick did not disappoint as the Eagles beat the Lions and backup quarterback Shaun Hill, 35-32. It has been stated that Kevin Kolb will start next week for the Eagles, adding to the controversy as many believe that Vick deserves to start.

Some surprising games included the Dolphins defeating the Vikings, 14-10; the Bears handling the Cowboys, 27-20; the Buccaneers upsetting the Panthers, 20-7; and the Jets knocking off the Patriots, 28-14.

In an overtime thriller, the Texans left the Redskins in disbelief as they won on a game-winning field goal, 30-27, moving to 2-0 on the season. The Texans have been a huge surprise team so far, as it seems like the Colts may finally have some competition in the AFC South.

In the Sunday night game, the Colts and the Giants faced off in the battle of brothers, as Peyton and Eli Manning tried to lead their teams to victory. Forget football, all I want to know is how depressing that game must have been for Cooper Manning, the only Manning that is/was not a star NFL quarterback. All jokes aside, the Colts won in a commanding fashion, destroying the Giants 38-14.

That’s it for this week folks. Enjoy the Monday night game between the Saints and the 49ers! My money is on the Niners, upset alert! BYE!

Hunter’s Sunday NFL Recap

Posted: September 13, 2010 in Uncategorized

It’s that time of the year again! The best time of all. The NFL regular season has FINALLY started. Now all football fans can get back to what they do best on Sundays, which is sitting on their butt in front of their TV screens ALL DAY.

The action actually started off on Thursday, with a great game between the Saints and the Vikings, with the Saints getting the win. Sunday was an action-packed day. The Raiders and 49ers, two Bay Area teams expected to be vastly improved this year, both started the season off with brutal losses to the Titans and the Seahawks, respectively.

The Houston Texans defeated the Indianapolis Colts, a very unexpected outcome that shows the change of power occurring in the usually Colt-dominated AFC-South.

The Eagles nearly came back from a 17 point deficit to beat the Packers, but were unsuccessful despite a valiant effort by Michael Vick. After starter Kevin Kolb was injured, Vick entered the game and performed extremely well, displaying an array of highlights using both his feet and his arm. This will be an interesting storyline throughout the season as critics argue over whether Kolb or Vick should be the Quarterback for the Eagles.

The New England Patriots won in a commanding fashion over the Cincinnati Bengals, and Tom Brady showed off his goofy new Justin Bieber hairstyle in the post-game interviews.

The Sunday night game between the Cowboys and the Redskins was a thriller, as it came down to the final play. The Cowboys appeared to have won the game at the last second, but an unfortunate penalty caused the win to be snatched out of their hands, and the Redskins came out victorious.

Now it’s Monday, and luckily for us football fans, we have 2 games to watch tonight! The Ravens and the Jets should provide a great game for fans to watch, as should the Chargers and the Chiefs. Hope you all enjoyed the first week of the NFL Season! Until next week…BYE!

After a last second penalty cost his team the game, Tony Romo walked off the field in shock as they lost to the Redskins in their season opener.

It was a weekend of High’s and Low’s for me! Great win on Saturday by the SDSU Aztec Football team, 41-21 over New Mexico State! On the contrary, tough loss for my Raiders on Sunday, losing 38-13 to the Titans. Come on Raiders, at least make it respectable! Great finish to the Sunday night game, Cowboys almost pulled it off! I have a ton of homework, so this is it for now. BYE!
