NFL Week 13 Fallout

Week 13 is in the books as we are getting closer to the playoffs in the National Football League (still 4 weeks away, but with the way this season has flown bye, it won't be long!). Before I begin I want to apologize to my 3 readers for not keeping up with the Fallout Report. I'll have it on time (every Tuesday) from now until the playoffs. With that said, let's see how I did!

Week 13 Record: 2-2
Overall Record: 20-16

Eagles 48 Cardinals 20

Donovan McNabb bounced back and led the Eagles to a dominant performance over the NFC West front runners. McNabb threw for 260 yards, 4 scores and no picks. Brian Westbrook added over 100+ yards along with 2 scores and the Eagles never looked back in this one. I thought this game would be a close one with the Cardinals winning. I'll take the hit! All 3 games on Thanksgiving were complete blowouts. Maybe next year the NFL can schedule better games. I know the Lions and Cowboys will probably remain on Turkey Day for eternity, but maybe have the Lions face a divisional foe every year and also have the Cowboys face a divisional opponent. I know I wouldn't mind seeing the Boys play the Giants, Eagles or Redskins every Thanksgiving!

Giants 23 Redskins 7

The Giants played their game and dominated this one. Eli and company have not let outside distractions keep the rhythm and flow out of their style of play all season. Giants edged the Skins at all the pivotal categories in this one: Yards, First Downs, Time of Possession, Turnovers, Penalties...basically everything. With the win the G-Men go to a NFL best (tied with the Titans) 11-1. Redskins fall to third in the NFC East at 7-5. Washington needs to win pronto to stay in the thick of things in the NFC. Dallas will be hard to overcome if they win against the Steelers this next week. We shall see how things work out.

Broncos 34 Jets 17

The upset of the week in the National Football League. The Denver Broncos took it to the Jets in this one. You want to talk about a crazy season, Broncos are the perfect example. Numerous injuries to running backs + they have home losses to Oakland and a road loss to the Chiefs, but they have won away at Atlanta and now the Jets. Makes it pretty head scratching to figure out what Broncos team will show up each Sunday this season. Jay Cutler had 357 yards in the game for two touchdowns. Jets with the loss still lead the AFC East. New England and Buffalo both lost as well. Miami being the only AFC East team winning with their win over the Rams.

Texans 30 Jaguars 17

The Texans stomped the Jacksonville Jags in this one from the get go. Jacksonville has definitely been one of the bigger disappointments this year. I would put them behind the Chargers as biggest disappointments this season. This is a team that won 11 games last season. They just didn't play like they wanted to be there last night. The Texans however...played hard all game long. Their officially 2-0 when wearing all red and playing on prime time (they defeated the Broncos on a Thursday night game last season). Hopefully another Monday Night game will grace Reliant Stadium in the near future or maybe a game where the Texans are at least a visiting team. Hook it up ESPN! If only the Texans treated every game like a prime time game...sigh'. Anyways yes. Two 4-7 teams going at it probably didn't do wonders with the ratings, but it was a nice few hours for Texans fans. It'll be interesting to see if the Texans can carry over the good play into Lambeau next week.
