NFL Sunday in Review

- The Saints and Drew Brees are absolutely unreal. Drew Brees struggled early, but struck with a vengeance in the 2nd half, and their defense continues to be a big impact for them, forcing 3 more turnovers, one of them for a touchdown. At this point, I really can't see how anybody in either conference is going to beat them.

- Well except maybe the Colts. Peyton Manning is well Peyton Manning, 235 for 3 TD's/0 INT's and it could have been a lot worse for the helpless Rams

- Minnesota-Pittsburgh was a great freakin football game. The Vikes showed some toughness today going toe to toe with the hard hitting Steelers, and Adrian Peterson's hit on William Gay was one of the sickest plays of the year. To anybody who considered benching AP, shame on you and I really hope that you lost this week.

- The NFC East just saw a major shakeup, as Dallas got a big win against the Falcons, and seemed to have found their replacement for TO in Miles Austin, and they really need him because Roy Williams and Patrick Crayton are flat out horrendous. The Giants on the other hand, suffered a second straight loss, as their offense struggled against Arizona's relentless blitzing schemes. It felt like watching Remember the Titans watching the Cards blitz every single play and harrassing the Giants' backfield. Play of the day #2 to Kevin Boss for holding onto a pass after taking a vicious helmet to helmet hit from a Cards' safety. This is still the Giants' division to lose, but today's action makes it a great 3 team race again.

- LOL JaMarcus Russell. 3 more turnovers in the first half before getting benched. How in God's green earth have the Raiders won 2 games with the bust of all busts at quarterback?

- I still can't believe it, but the Cincinnati Bengals are the real deal. Cedric Benson and Carson Palmer are playing out of their minds right now, but it's their defense that has been the real difference maker so far this season.

- The Bucs and Rams just keep getting worse and worse every week, if that's even possible.
