@TSFSports NFL Week 7 Recap and Commentary: Geno Smith and the Jets stun the Patriots; Colts change the locks on Peyton Manning

(USA Today)

The NY Jets needed the arm and legs of Geno Smith to knock off the Patriots.

Geno Smith’s rookie season has had its highs and lows. In his second meeting against the New England Patriots, the second round pick experienced the high of his young career as he passed for a touchdown and ran for another as the NY Jets defeated the Patriots in overtime 30-27.

The Indianapolis Colts were not about to have Peyton Manning party at their expense, so they opened the roof in Lucas Oil Stadium (something Manning hated) and watched the defense rain on Manning and the undefeated Broncos. The Colts hung on for a 39-33 victory to give the Broncos their first loss of the season.

Thursday Night:

Seattle Seahawks 34, Arizona Cardinals 22 – Once again, Seattle provided an equal mix of offense and aggressive defense on their way to their sixth victory. Russell Wilson passed for three touchdowns and the defense sacked Carson Palmer seven times and picked him off twice. The Cardinals have lost seven consecutive games in the NFC West.

Atlanta Falcons 31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23 – Harry Douglas emerged as Matt Ryan’s No. 1 target with Julio Jones out for the season and Roddy White out for yesterday’s contest. Douglas caught seven balls for 149 yards and a score as the Falcons are trying to climb back into the NFC South race after losing three in a row. The Bucs were unable to capitalize after controlling the ball in the final quarter.

Carolina Panthers 30, St. Louis Rams 15 – The Rams totally lost their cool to the tune of five personal foul penalties. Even worse, quarterback Sam Bradford was lost for the season with a knee injury. The Panthers won for the second week in a row against a lesser opponent. No one is going to take this team seriously until a win comes against someone with a winning record. The featured bout of the day was Panthers wideout Steve Smith v. Rams corner Janoris Jenkins. Check out Smith’s post-game comments.

Cincinnati Bengals 27, Detroit Lions 24 – Andy Dalton and Matthew Stafford combined for over 700 passing yards and six touchdown passes, but it was the Bengals who left with the victory after a late field goal. The Lions Calvin Johnson and the Bengals A.J. Green put on scintillating performances. One of Johnson’s two scores came in the midst of three Cincinnati defenders. The two Pro Bowlers later exchanged jerseys.

San Diego Chargers 24, Jacksonville Jaguars 6 – Maybe Ryan Matthews isn’t headed to that long list of first-round busts after all. Matthews rushed for 110 yards and a score as the Chargers worked against a short week and a cross-country flight to smash the winless Jaguars. Each of Jacksonville’s loses has come by double-digits. Phillip Rivers was 22 for 26 for 285 yards and a score.

Buffalo Bills 23, Miami Dolphins 21 – The Bills jumped out to a 14-point lead only to lose it and win it back for good on a late field goal. Mario Williams’ sack and forced fumble set up the game-winning field goal by former Dolphins kicker Dan Carpenter. The banged up Bills ended their six-game road losing streak. The Dolphins have dropped their third in a row.

NY Jets 30, New England Patriots 27 (Overtime) – The evolution of Geno Smith continues as he bounced back from a rough first outing against the Patriots to lead the Jets to a thrilling home victory. The Patriots were called for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Nick Folk’s missed 56-yard field goal attempt. The penalty gave the Jets fifteen yards and four more downs for Folk to bang through a 42-yarder. Good news for the Pats was the return of tight end Rob Gronkowski — who hauled in 8 passes for 114 yards.

Dallas Cowboys 17, Philadelphia Eagles 3 – Eagles fans now know their quarterback of the future is not on their current roster. Nick Foles was dismal before leaving the game with a head injury and replacement Matt Barkley reminded fans what a rookie quarterback looks like. Neither player did anything to ease the minds of fans or head coach Chip Kelly. The Cowboys blew open a game projected to be a shootout with 14 unanswered points to take control of the NFC East.

DC 45, Chicago Bears 41 – It’s taken nearly two months, but I’m happy to report Robert Griffin III is one step closer to his dangerous self. Griffin passed for 298 yards and two touchdowns and a pick, he also rushed for 84 yards on 11 carries. The Bears lost quarterback Jay Cutler with a groin injury, Josh McCown completed 14 of 20 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown. Matt Forte rushed for three touchdowns for Chicago.

San Francisco’s defense had and interception, three sacks and recovered a muffed punt for a score. Jake Locker returned to the Titans after being ruled out for several weeks with a hip injury.

Green Bay Packers 31, Cleveland Browns 13 – This one was about as ugly as the Packers throwback unis. Jarrett Boykin became Aaron Rodgers’ primary target in the absence of Randall Cobb and James Jones. Boykin caught 8 balls for 103 yards and a score. Running back Eddie Lacy rushed for 82 yards on 22 carries and a score. The Browns offense was putrid as quarterback Brandon Weeden completed 17 of 42 passes for 149 yards.

Kansas City Chiefs 17, Houston Texans 16 – The beat up Texans hung tough against the NFL’s lone unbeaten team and were in position to win the game at the end before Case Keenum was stripped of the ball by Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson at his 2. Jamaal Charles rushed for 82 yards and a score for Kansas City — who are off to their second best start in franchise history. The Texans were playing with heavy hearts after the passing of Houston coaching legend Bum Phillips who is the father of defensive coordinator Wade Phillps.

Pittsburgh Steelers 19, Baltimore Ravens 16 – The Steelers rediscovered the passion they lacked in the first month of the season with a grind it out win against the hated Ravens. It was another ugly battle as Pittsburgh held a 13-6 lead heading into the fourth quarter, the Ravens rallied to tie the game at 16 before Shaun Suisham nailed a 42-yard field goal with no time remaining. It was the Steelers second win a row after dropping four straight to open the season.

Indianapolis Colts 39, Denver Broncos 33 – Peyton Manning knows he can go home again, but just don’t expect the food to taste the same. Andrew Luck is the new man of the house and wasn’t too cordial once the game got going. Luck passed for three touchdowns and ran for another. Wide receiver Reggie Wayne left a game with a knee injury — a stunning development on a night where Marvin Harrison and Edgerrin James in attendance. Manning rallied the Broncos back from a 33-17 deficit heading into he fourth quarter, but struggled against the Colts pressure as he was sacked four times and picked off once. The Broncos potential drive to take the lead ended when Ronnie Hillman fumbled in the red zone.

    oh man! what the hell is wrong with Freeman…how in the hell could he do that?

    that play kills the spirit!

  2. mapoui says:

    I cant look anymore…thats it!

  3. mapoui says:

    might as well have played Ponder!

  4. mapoui says:

    I don’t understand what I have seen from Minnesota at all.

    Freeman is like a dead man, no energy, cautious, afraid, not making plays..like he is not in charge..no confidence.

    man he is not a dam child. he is a grown man with a job that he must do..lead his dam side. he has not led at all.

    Minnesota is in worse shape than New York. I am not even so sure of the play-calling. Fraser will be lucky to keep his job for the rest of this season, far less into the future

    this one looks in the bag for New York. I am done for the night anyway. I turned off my tv.

    goodnight all
