The jerks are the back

The headline and this clarifying sentence are all the print that the Patriots deserve.

Adam Vinatieri finally didn’t blow a kick and managed to secure a tight win over Kansas City. After watching the game, it’s very plain to see that there is something wrong with the Colts’ offence. They need Harrison and even Gonzalez back if they want to go somewhere in the playoffs.

Cleveland won a wacky one in which Browns’ kicker Phil Dawson nailed a kick through the uprights which then bounced back through onto the field. After the officials huddled up, they decided the long field goal counted and the game would be sent to overtime. Fittingly, Dawson put away the Ravens with a field goal.

T.O. grabbed four touchdowns against the Redskins who hung around with God’s team until the very end. Kind of like I said how it would happen…

Michael Strahan got to Jon Kitna several times in the Giants’ win but it looks like New York is going to be down two key players for at least a bit. Mathias Kiwanuka broke his left leg meaning his season is more than likely done and Brandon Jacobs left the game with a hamstring injury. And that crunch-time pass to Shaun McDonald that he bumped into the air, only to be picked by New York, was flat out awful. Where’s your hands man?

So McNabb was injured and they put in Jay Feeley? What the hell? Where’s the future? Where’s my Kevin Kolb?

The Packers were able to keep pace with the Cowboys in the NFC hunt for home-field advantage thanks to Brett Favre out-dueling fellow old man Vinny Testaverde. Both the ‘boys and the Pack play on Thanksgiving this Thursday and should be a treat to watch.

So with a short week ahead, the Thursday teams won’t have much time to prepare. Good thing the schedule makers made it easy for the good teams by pitting the Jets and Dallas while giving Green Bay a surprisingly exciting match up against Detroit which could settle the NFC north race.

Finally, the afformentioned Jets, with Kellen Clemens at the helm, defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers on a late field goal. That’s right, the Jets won their second game of the season and it wasn’t against a scrub team. Who knows what might happen in the coming New England-Pittsburgh match up.

This week: 9-4-1
This season: 67-71-8
