Today it was the first weekend of they year for the NFL. All the teams in the AFC North played in the early game so it will be fun (and funny) to follow up with those teams and see how they stacked up this week.
Baltimore 38, Kansas City 24
First up we have the hated Baltimore Ravens who beat the KC Chiefs 38-24. Now you may look at that and thinkt that this might have been a game that the Ravens had in the pocket for most of the game, it was nothing like that. I got to see a little bit of this game and really the Chiefs had their way with the Ravens defense that was the big key today. Looking at the stats you see that the Chiefs only had 188 total yards, but they were making the big plays. A blocked punt got them 7 and then a couple of good, long drives that gave them points. Not the same Baltimore D we saw last year.
We also saw Joe Flacco throw an amazing 43 times for 307 yards. No idea what that was about but I cannot imagine that this will be Ravens football this year. If it is then they are going to be in some trouble. On he flip side Brode Croyle went 16/24 for 177 yards and two touchdowns and a 116.1 QB rating. Pretty intersting there. Who knows. Ravens D did not look good.
Minnesota 34, Cleveland 20
This was was not really close, unlike the Ravens game. The Browns are what they are, the Browns. They are not going to be good this year and when you go up against AP you are going to have a tough day. He, himself, had 180 yards and three touchdowns and pretty much had his way breaking ackles and what not.
Bright spot for Cleveland was their do everything WR Josh Cribbs. This dude can really do everything. He took a punt back 67 yards for a Cleveland touchdown. He also leads the team in ST tackles and is their second WR. I am not so sure he is worthy of a #2 WR but when you are the Browns I think I could go in and be their #3.
Brady Quinn went 21/35 for 205 yards and a TD. I guess that is ok for him. Minnesota is a pretty good D but I have a feeling he is going to be a little bit below average. Just looked uncomfortable on the field and I have a feeling he is going to have his fair share of ups and downs. I can't wait till DL gets ahold of him when they play the Steelers. He loves game planning for young QB's.
Denver 12, Cincinnati 7
The Bengals are a joke. If you did not see this game then you really have to check out the highlights and watch how this one ended. The Bungals might have thought that because they had Carson back they were going to be going to the playoffs and the Super Bowl but I think they have another thing coming. Their offense did nothing all day. They were shut down by a less than steller Broncos team and got a TD with 38 seconds left to take a 7-6 lead.
Watch the YouTube I have put in here and make sure you see the end.
wait for it...
wait for it...
wait for it...
hahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahah what a joke.
I literally laughed for a good ten mintues to myself while I was on the couch watching this game. I mean sure that sucks, but I don't care. It's the Bungals.
