The NFL puts on a fantastic show

From where I sit it looks like the NFL dropped the ball...and still had an amazing Sunday...


I want to get the complaining done first...what idiot decided I shouldn't be allowed to watch the end of the Ravens-Vikings game? There's four seconds left and a video review is underway for a potential game winning touchdown...aaannnnnnd let's take you out to San Francisco where the 49ers and Seahawks are nearly ready to start. It wasn't even for the kick-off. They went to commercial. If you can't show me the end of a game, please don't show me the beginning of it. Someone should channel their inner Dave Hodge.


Apart from that it was a memorable day of football...


Even if I missed the official ruling, Baltimore and Minnesota scored four touchdowns in 90 seconds trading the lead each time! Detroit and Philadelphia played in a full-on blizzard. And put on a great show. LeSean McCoy set a team record with 217 rushing yards. Jeremy Ross had 2 touchdowns and 243 yards, just on punt and kick returns. All in 6 to 8 inches of snow. The Patriots scored two touchdowns in 30 seconds to edge the Browns. Sure, there was an bad call thrown in there, but none-the-less still impressive. Matt Prater hit an NFL record 64-yard field goal in Denver. The Niners and Seahawks spent 60 minutes trying to kill each other. Drew Brees hit the 50,000 yard mark. Nobody stayed to watch the Redskins lose. And the NFL set a record for number of touchdowns in a single day (90). It was all almost too much to take in...and that's what the NFL Network is for!

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
