I for one would not look that victory in the mouth, Cowboy fans. That was a good win that puts Dallas in an excellent position heading into the final three games of the regular season.
That D rocks, and continues to be a takeaway machine, forcing three more picks and the first lost fumble of Saquon Barkley’s NFL career. Ten INTs on the season for Trevon Diggs. That would be impressive even if his name was Mel. Or Everson.
Running game? Better, although that team rushing total of 125 yards doesn’t sizzle. But the O line was better at the point of attack than it has been in the last month, and both Elliott and Pollard ran with authority.
Dak? I’m honestly not alarmed. There were some dropped balls (WTH was up with that, Cee Dee?) And that’s a tough place to throw (or kick) the ball in December. No picks!
All systems go heading into next Sunday night’s rematch with the WFT.
One more thing. Micah is a freak. Did you see him in coverage 25 yards downfield?
It’s down to Parsons and TJ for NFLDPOY.
I have Texans gear. I like to wear my Texans gear. I will do so proudly today. Yeah, it’s come to that. I’m celebrating a win over the no-longer-time-to-wallow-in-the-Meyer Jags. But it was cool. A 98-yard KO return TD. First career starting win for Davis Mills. Brandin Cooks is a pro. Light my fire!
Yeah, I’m counting. That’s six straight wins for the Dolphins. Huh?
That was a bad loss, Titans.
That was a bad loss, Broncos. (Good vibes to you, Teddy.)
And now for the twin elephants in the room.
No excuses, Cardinals, although the Lions are now playing like demons for Dan Campbell. Is Arizona now the third best team in the NFC West? And is Kyler Murray the fourth best quarterback in the division?
So, then…I kept waiting for the defending Super Bowl champs to score a point last night. I’m still waiting. Dennis Allen owns Tom Brady. Yes, even more than Aaron Rodgers “owns” the Bears. Brady coughed up a fumble, threw a bad pick and got sacked four times, every single one of them against just a four-man rush.
The Bucs have much bigger problems now than just that inexplicable shutout loss at home. That looked bad for Chris Godwin. That looked bad for Mike Evans. That looked bad for Leonard Fournette.
I have enormous respect and some strange affection for John Harbaugh. But, no, all this swashbuckling, go-for-it, “I Am I Said” primal scream shit has got to stop. (That goes for you, too, Brandon Staley!)
No. I kinda sorta got it when Harbaugh went all or nothing two weeks ago against the Steelers.
Not yesterday vs. the Packers. Harbaugh says it was his “gut.” Somebody needs to buy him a roll of Rolaids to help his sour stomach.
But the Bengals say “thanks!” as they now climb into first in the AFC North (at least until late this Monday afternoon, if the battered Browns can find a way to beat the Raiders).
Now, I am going to perhaps give you reason to challenge my mental stability.
Tyler Huntley would give the Ravens a better chance to advance deep in the playoffs than does Lamar Jackson.
I’ll explain and defend my position tomorrow. Unless I get distracted and forget. Feel free to remind me.
And here I am calling HARBAUGH crazy! (lol)
