NFL Week 9 Fallout

The debut of the Crypt Keeper was not a success. Two consecutive 2-2 records in the past two weeks (tongue twister yikes) keeps the overall record at .500 for the season. No worries though, I know success is on its way as the Crypt Keeper and I will go back to the drawing board to chalk up better predictions and analysis. With that said, let's see what happened in Week 9 of the NFL.

Last Week: 2-2

Overall Record: 10-10

Vikings 28 Texans 21

This was a game the Texans could have won despite Matt Schaub suffering an MCL injury in the second quarter due to a hit by Vikings' Jared Allen. Sage Rosenfels took over and led the team for a touchdown on the first drive after half-time, but those would be the only points for the Texans in the second half as their 3 game winning streak was snapped. The story remains the same: Texans play pretty good at home, but playing on the road has not netted good results.

Giants 35 Cowboys 14

The Cowboys were not expected to go into Giants Stadium and defeat the Giants. The media, fans and even the coaching staff probably knew this would not be a pretty sight. Eli Manning besides 1 pick six looked pretty good throwing for 3 scores. Dallas drops to last place in the NFC East. However, all hope is not lost for the Boys'. They head into a Week 10 Bye and will likely get Tony Romo back in Week 11. Still a lot of football left to be played.

Eagles 26 Seahawks 7

The Seahawks wasted no time in getting on the board as quarterback Seneca Wallace connected with Koren Robinson for a team-record 90 yard touchdown pass. The Philadelphia Eagles responded however with 26 unanswered points leading to a 26-7 rout of the Seahawks. Qwest Field was emptied before the game had ended as Seattle goes to 2-6 on the season.

Steelers 23 Redskins 6

A game where the debut of my Crypt Keeper turned out to be a complete dud. The Steelers looked like they couldn't do anything on offense for the majority of the first half with the Skins' offense blitzing Big Ben left and right. Bryon Leftwich was called into the game after Roethlisberger remained in the lockerroom at half-time and maybe surprising to some--Leftwich looked pretty good out there against the Redskins going 7 for 10, 129 yards and a score. All in all an ugly-dominating performance by the Pittsburgh Steelers. On a side note: Redskins QB Jason Campbell threw his first 2 interceptions of the season.

That will pretty much wrap it up for this week's Fallout Report. Another fun week in the National Football League. Before I put the final period on this post though: Today is Election day. One of our rights is to vote. We have the right to vote for any of the candidates we want. It doesn't take much effort to go to your local polling place and to cast your vote. I'm proud to say that I voted a couple of weeks ago in early voting for the first time. Feels good! Just a few closing words I wanted to get in before I ended this week's Fallout Report.
