Wild Weekend Continues
Saturday was the day of the underdog in the NFL. Sunday on the other hand fell right into the hands of the experts. If you had told me that The Jets would go into Indy and beat Peyton and the Colts I would have told you that you were crazy, but that exact thing happened. Now if you had said that the Seattle Seahawks were going to slap around the Saints i would of thought you were even crazier, but I see insanity was the key to victory today.
Seattle played early and beat New Orleans 41-36. Matt Hasselbeck threw 4 TD’s in his return to starter. Former Bill Marshawn Lynch rushed for 131 yards and a TD, including a 67 yard rush that resulted in a score. The Jet’s won in pure playoff fashion, the last second. Nick Folk sealed the win with a 36 yard field goal which put the Jets up 17-16 with just 3 seconds left. The Jets now move on to face the New England Patriots at home. Sorry to say Jet fans but I think the ride is over. The Pats are playing awesome football right now so expect a Brady beat down next week.
The Chiefs came to life this year under Todd Haley in his second year. He led them to a divison title, but their season is over. Baltimore hands them a crushing 30-7 loss at home. So now the Ravens move onto face their AFC North rival Steelers next week. The Eagles and Packers was a toss up but most people gave the win to the Packers, who proved them right. They were able to outlast Vick and the Eagles for a 21-16 win in Philly. If not for 2 missed field goals by David Akers, the Eagles may be moving on to face Atlanta but now Matty Ice is Green Bays problem. As an Eagle fan i am crushed, but as a football fan i am excited for the rest of the playoffs.
Hope to see you at all our Buffalo Jill appearances next weekend for the divisional round of the playoffs! Check out all the details on the times and locations here.
