It was a big day in the NFL yesterday. Here is my usual, ‘Sunday Summary’…
In the early games, Nick Foles used his big tight ends for 3 TD’s and 0 picks to pull out a win vs Arizona. Foles has a 19-0 TD/INT radio. The Vikings survived another OT game with a game winning Blair Walsh FG vs the Bears. Despite Ben Tate’s 3 TD’s, the Patriots got a Steven Gostkowski FG to beat the Texans 34-31. The Texans have lost 10 consecutive games. The Jaguars are now on a roll after losing 9 straight games, they won their last 3. They beat the Cleveland Browns 32-28, despite Josh Gordon’s 200+ yard game. Gordon made history to be the 1st person in history with 2 straight 200+ yard games. In PPR leagues, he had 50 fantasy points. In the late games, Peyton Manning and the Broncos faced off against the Kansas City Chiefs. Eric Decker had a monster game for Denver with 4 TD’s. It all came down to the final drive, but Denver stopped KC on 4th down to win 35-28. KC is on a 3 game losing streak after going 9-0. The Falcons played the Bills in Toronto, QB Matt Ryan threw for over 300 yards and RB Steven Jackson ran for 2 TD’s to lead Atlanta to a 34-31 win to stop a 5 game skid. The Seahawks will play the Saints tonight, if the Saints lose, they will be tied with the streaking Panthers for 1st place. Otherwise, no changes were made in the playoff picture yesterday.
