Week 7 Notes and Observations: Patriots Let One Slip Away, Lose to Jets 30-27 in OT

We are all aware of the controversial call that ended up winning the game for the Jets. Yes, that was an awful call at a critical moment in the game, but you can’t allow the game to be in the referees’ hands. NFL officials, or officials in any sport for that matter, have shown that […]

The Colts Will Win Super Bowl XLIV

Week 7 Sleepers

Last week, I highlighted how bad the Oakland Raiders offense was. By the tone of my rant, I clearly expected them to keep up their malnourished offense for the entire season. So what do they do? They have their best offensive game of the season and end up beating one the best defenses in the […]
