Week 14

  • San Diego 48, Denver 20 - LaDainian Tomlinson is the MVP. Not unlike the Heisman race, this one is over a lot sooner than it usually is. The San Diego Chargers are 11-2, best in the league, and are the clear cut favorites to win it all.
  • Arizona 27, Seattle 21 - The Super Bowl runner ups are not winning the games that they are supposed to, as they fall to Edge James and Matt Leinart in Glendale. FOUR fumbles kill key Seahawk drives, yet they were a yard shy of going on to win the game.
  • Tennessee 26, Houston 20 (OT) - Vince Young drops back on 3rd & 14 in overtime, then takes off for 39 yards scoring the game winning touchdown in his hometown, moving to 6-4 as starter. Could it have gone any better?
  • Jacksonville 44, Indianapolis 17 - Many expected the Jaguars to pressure Manning, rough up the Colts receivers, and run the ball up the middle against the soft Indy defense. But no one expected 375 rushing yards and FOUR touchdowns, and an additional one on a Jones-Drew kick return.
  • Miami 21, New England 0 - Let me get this straight. Future hall of famers Tom Brady and Peyton Manning get shut down and rookies Matt Leinart and Vince Young win. And people ask me why I love the NFL.
  • New Orleans 42, Dallas 17 - The Saints are the next greatest show on turf. Opposing teams defenses would be so focused on Marshall Faulk that it would allow stars to be made out of Kurt Warner, Isaac Bruce, and Torry Holt. Opposing teams are now so focused on Reggie Bush, that stars are being made out of Drew Brees, Marquis Colston, and Devry Henderson. After Bush's amazing 61-yard touchdown catch and run highlighted with a couple of his signature jukes and cutbacks, Al Michaels pointed out that Reggie Bush has the number one jersey sold in the NFL. John Madden follows that up with, "I am about to buy one too." Yes, Drew Brees is an MVP candidate and Sean Payton is Coach of the Year, but the Saints have the number one offense because of Reggie Bush.
