Monday Morning Blitz: Snow Games, Injuries, Kicks and MNF

Nick Foles Snow Game

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles grabs for the ball in blizzard like conditions Sunday.

You couldn’t tell if it was actually fun for the players, but it was entertaining to watch many of Sunday’s games as they played in snowy, more like blizzardy in Philadelphia, conditions.

There were a few injuries including Reggie Bush taking a fall before the Detroit Lions game with the Philadelphia Eagles even started. Here is a report from NFL.com on other injuries  from around the league including an apparent second cocussion for Broncos receiver Wes Welker, a foot injury for Vikings RB Adrian Peterson and an apparent ACL injury to Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski.

NFL.com also had this story on Gronk and the effect this injury could have on the Patriots for the remainder of the season. And here is a story on Gronk and the Patriots from ESPN. Watch this GIF  from Big Lead Sports featuring Patriots Coach Bill Belichick giving Cleveland Browns defender T.J. Ward the evil eye after knocking out the prized tight end.

One of Sunday’s snow games could have had the greatest ending in the NFL. EVER. But. After multiple lateral throws across the playing field, Antonio Brown stepped out of bounds, making the play dead and the clock run out of time. Steelers fans and fantasy owners of Brown were all screaming. … I’m thinking they were anyway. LOOK AT THIS PLAY! The Miami Dolphins… yeah, that team that plays in warm and sunny Miami … defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers… on a snowy day, 34-28.

Another play from Sunday that you need to check out? Broncos kicker Matt Prater booted a 64-yard field goal through the up-rights. He set an NFL record with the kick. It’s amazing. Take a look!

The Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears will take each other on at Soldier Field on Monday Night Football on ESPN. This should be a GOOD game. Not just because I know so many of you will watch because of your fantasy football teams, but it will actually be a good game. Here’s a preview from ESPN and here’s a preview from NFL.com.

Also, here’s a screen shot of the CBS Broadcast showing FedEx Field at the start of the third quarter of the Redskins and Chiefs game.

Now. Pick up your jaw from the keyboard and get going! Have a wonderful rest of your Monday!
