As Philadelphia holds its collective breath on the status of Donovan McNabb, somewhere Andy Reid is thanking his lucky stars to have Michael Vick on the roster. Because once again, backup QB Kevin Kolb failed to convince anyone that he’s ready to replace McNabb.
Niners 20 – Cards 16: The NIners defense is taking the shape of Mike SIngletary. Patrick Willis may be the best defensive player in football.
Falcons 19 – Dolphins 7: Four turnovers became the Phins undoing.
Ravens 38 – Chiefs 24: The Chiefs hung around longer than many of us expected. Ray Rice is gonna be a good one.
Eagles 38 – Panthers 10: Give new Defensive Coordinator Sean McDermott an A for yesterday’s game plan. Next week it’s Drew Brees and the Saints.
Vikings 34 – Browns 20: I agree that Adrian Peterson is the best back in football, but stop the Eric Dickerson comparisons.
Jets 24 – Texans 7: Mark Sanchez did what he was supposed to do; pick his spots, minimize turnovers and relay on what could be a scary defense.
Saints 45 – Lions 27: Did the Chargers really get rid of Drew Brees?
Colts 14 – Jags12: I hope I didn’t jinx Anthony Gonzalez’s season, Colts go to Miami next week.
Cowboys 34 – Buccaneers 21: Tony Romo looked like a new man yesterday. So did Byron Leftwich.
Broncos 12 – Bengals 7: The Broncos went into Paul Brown Stadium and stunned the Bengals, stealing an improbable victory.
Giants 23 – Redskins 17: I’m convinced that Osi Umenyiora is the son of Michael Strahan.
Seahawks 28 – Rams 0: The Rams can’t be this bad…
Packers 21 – Bears 15: So much for the much anticipated shootout between Jay Cutler and Aaron Rodgers. Breaking News: LB Brian Urlacher reportedly out for the season after breaking his wrist.
Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots 7pm: Looking for how the Patriots approach covering Terrell Owens. Also curious to see how Tom Brady handles pressure up the middle from Marcus Stroud and Aaron Schobel.
Final: Patriots 35 – Bills 17
San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders 10:15 pm: As the AFL celebrates their 50th Anniversary, I’m hoping for an old fashioned shootout between two bitter rivals.
Final: Chargers 30 - Raiders 28
