What an amazing weekend of football! Sunday’s games were just as exciting as Saturday’s games. Let’s discuss!
* The Chargers defeated the Bengals 27-10. The weather wasn’t as bad as anticipated and the Chargers took advantage of some serious bungles by the Bengals. The Bengals loss extends a 23-year playoff streak of bad luck. And Andy Dalton now has a bad streak of his own with a third straight bad playoff game. Not so dandy, Andy. Philip Rivers on the other hand, led the Chargers to their fifth consecutive victory. Their last loss? Against the Bengals.
Oh and … how about Philip’s tie? Nice King LaserFace. Nice!
* The Niners got a lift from the leg of Phil Dawson to defeat the Packers 23-20 in freaking cold conditions — we’re talking a wind chill of minus 10 degrees — at Lambeau Field. Dawson, Colin Kaepernick and the Niners seemed not fazed by the frigid conditions.
Pretty good for the defending NFC champs!
