What a Week

It was a great week in football and once again the Patriots start the season 1-1. The Titans surprisingly start 0-2 after two heart breaker last second losses. Also no one expected Chicago to take out the defending Champion Steelers. Another upset was the raising 49ers running down the strong Seahawks. The biggest of them all, although not unexpected is the Jets shutting down the Patriots. The Bengals beat the red hot Packers and when Ochocinco scored a TD he was to scared to do the Lambeau leap like he promised. The week was quite wired in ways. Brett Favre finished his second game with the Vikings with no interceptions this season, the only other QB's that has scored a TD and has no interceptions are Kyle Orton, Aaron Rogers and Brodie Croyle. Adrian Peterson leads the league in rushing as usual. Also everyone thought that the Giants would have to trust their running game but Eli is third in the league for passing yards and Steve Smith and Mario Manningham are hold second and third place for most receiving yards in the NFL. Drew Brees is up to a MVP season already having 9 TD's and 669 yards passing in 2 games. The Eagles, Steelers and Patriots who where suppose to be the dominating teams this year have already suffered a loss. Big NFL defensive players Brian Urlacher, Jerod Mayo and Troy Polamalu are not expected to return until at lease mid season if not the whole season. There has already been 5 interceptions returned for TD's and a total of 41 interceptions thrown in two weeks. The Detroit Lions haven't won a game yet. The Falcons recently traded for hall of fame TE Tony Gonzalez is showing why he belongs in Canton with 12-144 and 2 TD's with 11 of his 12 catches being first downs. T.O. finally caught a TD and dropped a deep pass after he had said all week they where not throwing deep enough times to him. T.O. has also already blown up a bit. There is already a problem with the Cowboys brand new 111,000 seat stadium (the 60 yard screens are to low). The Cowboys are questioning Coach Phillips again after a heart breaker loss in the stadiums opening day. McNabb has already missed a game. But all in all it's been an exciting start to the season.
