The Panthers finally, finally, landed their first win of the season. It wasn’t a pretty thing, but I’m not proud. Alex Smith got knocked out of the game(a bruised shoulder I believe; i’m glad it wasn’t worse). David Carr came in and threw a pick late in the game, when it was tied, that led to a field goal for the game winner, 23-20. The opponent was the 49ers who got their first win last week, leaving them 1-6 and the Panthers.1-5.
The Saints lost to the BROWNS!. Four picks is not good. They are the only NFC South team to lose this week as Atlanta took down the Bengals, 39-32, and anpa bay came back to defeat the Rams, 18-17. That leaves the Falcons atop the division 6-2, ahead of the Bucs, 4-2, the Saints, 4-3, and the Panthers, 1-5.
My ‘Skins hung in against the Bears, 17-14, and the Eagles went down 37-19. The Giants and the Cowboys play tonight. By all rights, I should pull for the Boys from Dallas. the ‘Sins and the Eages are both 4-3 and before the game coming up, the Giants are 4-2, the Cowboys 1-4. But, it’s the Cowboys. GO Giants!
The Jets had the bye this week and stand at 5-1. New England now leads the division 6-1, still with their bye to come, mIami is 3-3 and the Bills a woeful 0-6, the last team without a win this season.
Bring on next week.
