It was a good and bad week for my three teams: two winners and one bad loser.
My Redskins lost to the hated Cowboys, 14-10, tonight. One odd fact. They said in the history of the Redskins’ franchise, some seventy odd years, their record for games played on November 16 has now reached 0-10. Please, no more games on this day.
That leaves the Giants, a winner today in first in the NFC East with a 9-1 record, the Redskins two games back, the Cowboys three, and the Eagles last because they ended the day in a tie game with the Bengals.
The Jets defeated the Patriots Thursday night in a showdown for first place in the AFC East and the Dolphins won over the Raiders, 17-15, to keep them close. Buffalo plays tonight.
The Panthers beat the Lions, 31-22, to keep them winless. But Detroit played a pretty good game in losing, It seems they may have found themselves a quarterback in Daunte Culpepper, in spite of the gift interception he gave away near the end that helped the Panthers build on their slim margin. I think they may be alright in the future.
That leaves the Panthers in first at 8-2. The Bucs won over the Vikings, 19-13, to stay one game back. Atlanta fell to the Broncos, 24-20, to fall two games back and the Saints won to even their record at 5-5.
The Titans won to remain undefeated at 10-0. Six more games to go. They will probably lose , but what a story.
