Monday Morning Blitz: Week Five Fun

jets-falcons-betting-oddsAfter a late night of football with the Raiders and Chargers, NFL fans have one more game to look forward to tonight!

The New York Jets will take on the Atlanta Falcons in Monday Night Football action on ESPN.

Here is a preview of what to expect from ESPN. And here are some interesting tidbits on the game from NFL.com.  The game starts at 8:40 p.m. ET

Also, Judy Battista of NFL.com, writes this lovely opinion piece about the Jets and Mark Sanchez ‘marriage’ ending at precisely the right time. It’s a bit condescending. But still an interesting perspective to consider.

 

In the Denver Broncos 51-48 win over the Dallas Cowboys, Peyton Manning did something completely Un-Peyton like. Y’all! Watch this …

Yes! That is him jogging in for a touchdown!

He threw for 414 yards and four touchdowns. He also threw an interception. And the above touchdown! While this was all impressive, he wasn’t the most impressive quarterback on the field! Tony Romo threw for  506 yards and five touchdowns. But, the lone interception he threw cost the Cowboys the game. The interception came as the game was tied at 48. The interception was thrown and the Broncos were able to get kicker Matt Prater within field goal distance to win the game.

In other NFL news:

  • And here is an injury report from NFL.com. Information on David Wilson, Zac Stacy and Michael Vick is available on the site.
  • Speaking of injuries, Blaine Gabbert sustained a hamstring injury during the Jags game with the Rams. Chad Henne entered the game as his replacement. The Jags lost to the Rams, 34-20. Something tells me Jacksonville’s hometown boy, Tim Tebow may get a look now. … Yeah probably not! But would it really surprise any of you? I mean really! Chad Henne or Tim Tebow. Come on!
  • And, the Indianapolis Colts had themselves an impressive win Sunday afternoon. Andrew Luck lead the Colts to a 34-28 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Andrew and the Colts are for real this season. This game over a previously undefeated Hawks,, proves it. Here are Dan Hanzus’s thoughts on the game! They will have an interesting test next week as they will take on the Chargers in MNF action!
  • Mike Florio announced at the end of the Sunday Night Football game that Josh Freeman would sign a one-year contract with the Minnesota Vikings. Here’s the post on ProFootballTalk! And here’s a report from NFL.com.

And now, for a little fun! I present this to you with zero comment!
