In record-breaking ways, week 9 had plenty to offer! The Colts’ rookie QB Luck threw for 433 yards against the Dolphins, setting a new rookie QB record for throwing yards in a single game and breaking Cam Newton’s record last year by 1 yard! As of right now Luck is tied with Peyton Manning’s record of 4 games with 300 or more passing yards in a season. My guess is he will break this record as well! The Chicago Bears put up 51 points against the struggling Tennessee Titans. Most points scored in a game for the Bears since 1980!
In Denver, Trindon Holliday returned a kickoff for 105 yards for a touchdown– the longest for the Broncos and the longest ever allowed by the Cincinnati Bengals. Peyton Manning also added to his Hall Of Fame resume by making his 48th game-winning drive and surpassing the legendary Dan Marino!
The Atlanta Falcons are still unbeaten at 8-0. Looking at their schedule for the rest of season, I think it is possible they could have a prefect season, but I seriously doubt it! They have to play the Saints, Panthers, Giants, Lions and Bucs. My guess is that they will lose to the Saints this week and then the Giants in week 15. Although they will go to the playoffs, my only concern is whether they can finally get a playoff win. For whatever reason, they always fall flat in the playoffs! They definitely have all the pieces of the puzzle to succeed and contend for Super Bowl title! Will this finally be their year?
Bozo No No goes out to the Cleveland Browns! Wow, talk about a hot mess! Their offense is struggling. They only put up 15 points on the scoreboard against the Ravens, but all points came at the foot of kicker Phil Dawson! Not sure who to blame? QB Weeden, Coach Shurmur , offensive line, defense? If I were them, I would seriously think about starting Colt McCoy as QB. Couldn’t hurt, right?
So here is a video of one impressive 8-year-old girl that plays small fry football. Sam Gordon has mad skills and some serious wheels! 35 scores, 232 carries, 1,911 yards, 8.2 yards per carry and 65 tackles! Now she is full of awesome!
