The NFL Sunday Ticket is one of my favorite products of all time. I mainly buy it to watch every Raider game but being able to watch any other game I want… or if I’m being lazy, watch the Red Zone channel… is football heaven. Thank you DirecTV! With all of this power comes great responsibility to share all of the wisdom, insights, and happenings from around the NFL.
Without further ado… I give you a recap of the games from the NFL Week 7:
“Who’s your daddy?” Peyton breaks Favre’s TD record of 508. Broncos 42 49ers 17
Spiller breaks his collar bone. F Jax also out with injury. This is now the official Sammy Watkins show… 122 yds 2 TD. Bills 17 Vikings 16
I guess we don’t have a QB controversy anymore. Kirk Cousins was pulled and Colt McCoy leads the Redskins to victory. RGIII might practice this week. NFL also needs to get rid of their “only 1 helmet” rule… these retros aren’t working. Redskins 19 Titans 17
Rams deserve credit for the way they played… crazy trick punt return that fooled EVERYONE… fake punt deep in their own territory… but the Rams caught a break as this fumble in the pic was ruled to be recovered by the Rams. Rams 28 Seahawks 26
The only game where you can have Saints Bush tackle Lions Bush. Saints 23 Lions 24
Cam still doesn’t know what hit him. Rodgers is rolling. Carolina 17 Packers 38
I guess Vereen is filling in nicely for Ridley… 2 receiving TD. Patriots 27 Jets 25
DeMarco Murray breaks Jim Brown’s 56 yr old record with 7th straight 100yd rushing game to start a season… correlation – Cowboys are 6-1. Cowboys 31 Giants 21
What is wrong with the Falcons? Atlanta 7 Baltimore 29
Bears are winless at home this year. I never know what to expect from either of these two teams. Dolphins 27 Bears 14
I don’t care about this game but Jamaal Charles was blown up crossing the goal line in this pic. Chiefs 23 Chargers 20
Congrats on your first win Jacksonville. Now the Raiders are in sole possession of the 1st pick in the draft. Jaguars 24 Browns 6
Time to talk about the Colts D… kidding… Luck is dealing again… 344 yds. Colts 27 Bengals 0
I just happened to turn this game on for that 3 minute stretch where the Steelers put up 24 points. Crazy swing in the game and my favorite part was the tipped INT by Brett Keisel. Steelers 30 Texans 23
STATE OF RAIDER NATION
Raiders still without a win on the year. Raiders came out flatter than last week… fell behind early 14-0. They showed some life in the second quarter and nearly tied it in the third 14-13 on a Sea Bass FG. However, the Cardinals put together an 80 yd drive late in the third and then put the Raiders away on a FG with :29 seconds left to win the game 24-13.
The officiating wasn’t good today. Raiders got away with some stuff as well but when the refs are inconsistent… that is when it becomes a problem for me. Illegal contact, holding, illegal block in back on Carrie’s 54yd return… frustrating.
Next week @ Cleveland Browns at 4:25 eastern.
Azel Wendell Grasty Sr., more commonly known as Oaktown Pirate, passed away on Monday at the age of 57.
Woodson hit instead of wrapped up and Taylor was able to leap across the goal line for the first score.
Deep TD pass to Floyd… just out of reach.
Darren McFadden ran hard at times today. Good to see him get in the end zone on a play where Derek Carr was unsure of the play call.
C Wood with another INT on the year.
Young rookie Carrie is playing well. Had a nice return called back but I believe he will break one this year.
On a bogus roughing the passer call this happened… lace locked.
Classy move by Palmer.
Not a classy move by Dockett…
