Happy Monday everyone. We witnessed one of the greatest college football games in recent memory. LSU beat Alabama 46-41 in Tuscaloosa. If you missed the game, you have to watch the highlights:
The finish was picture perfect. I can’t say enough about how good Joe Burrow is. Every big throw that he had to make was made on Saturday night. And I was really suprised to see how much Tua struggled. I’m sure it was just the ankle but really tough to see. I live tweeted the game. Here are some of the highlights:
Joe Burrow had the tweet of the night, however.
Elsewhere in college football, ROW THE BOAT. Minnesota beat Penn State 31-26 in Minnesota. Tanner Morgan, the QB for Minnesota, threw for 339 and 3 TD’s. I think we got our answer on if Minnesota is for real or not.
In the NFL, we had one of the craziest 1:00 windows ever. The witching hour took my soul and I lost three bets within 5 minutes!!
NFL Quick Hits:
The Browns finally got a big win, beating the Buffalo Bills in Cleveland. Baker Mayfield made big throws late and their defense hung tight in the fourth quarter.
The Packers are a top 3 team in the NFL. Rodgers is playing MVP level football and Aaron Jones is becoming a superstar in front of our eyes.
The Dolphins and Bengals have been in a competition for the number one overall pick since the season started, and the Fins are losing after they beat the Colts on Sunday. It will be interesting to see how that plays out as we inch towards April.
The Jets offense looked really good today. Darnold desperately needed to just have a mistake free game and score some points and he did just that. It will be interesting to see what the Jets do with both Gase and Darnold as we approach the final stretch of the season.
The Chiefs lost another game they had no business losing. They did not have a good game defensively and Derrick Henry ran right through them. They also let up a crucial 4th quarter TD with under a minute left to give Ryan Tannehill and the Titans the win in Tennessee. Gotta give credit to the Titans and especially Mike Vrabel. The Titans came to play and it showed from the first snap.
The Lions were without Matt Stafford in Chicago and they left without a win. Mitch Trubisky had his best game of the year. Detroit’s defense has consistently played bad this season and it especially showed against Chicago.The Bears are at 4-5 and somehow still in play to compete for a playoff spot. THIS LEAGUE.
Dan Quinn’s job is safe. There were reports that Falcons ownership were using this game to track how this season has gone, so Dan Quinn will surely keep his job another week. I can’t believe the Saints allowed the Falcons to just walk all over them like that. Drew Brees was horrible. Put Teddy back in.
I blogged last week about Minkah Fitzpatrick being the best trade in NFL history. Ok, not really, but I did say how great of trade that was for the Steelers. He now has 6 INT’s this season since joining Pittsburgh’s squad. Don’t look now but the Steelers are 5-4 and have a really good defense.
The Bucs are back in the win column. Jameis had a great game throwing for almost 400 yards against the Cardinals. They snapped a 4 game losing streak. They face the Saints next weekend. The Cardinals have been surprising people this year, especially of late. They are competitive and I think Kyler Murray is the most exciting rookie this season.
I can’t believe we already in November. As we continue down the final stretch of the football year, I’m sure it will get even better.
The Eagles had a bye week. I forgot how much bye week’s suck.
Enjoy your Monday.
