In this week’s version of NFL Upon Further Review, we have enough circus catches to put Barnum and Bailey to shame, Tim Tebow looks ugly in another W, we learn to never ever kick the ball to Devin Hester under any situation, the Lions and Bears get a little feisty after an interception and Bills wideout David Nelson celebrates a TD with his gf.
Welcome To The Circus
Normally during an NFL Sunday, we get one or two noteworthy catches. However, this week we got a ton:
Here’s the first one from St Louis’ Brandon Lloyd against the Browns as he tip-toed the sidelines to make this nice catch…
The next one comes to us from Dallas as Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant makes this improbably catch against Leodis McKelvin…
Finally, Kansas City rookie Jonathan Baldwin’s catch against the Broncos was pretty impressive but was taken away due to a penalty…
Buffalo’s David Nelson Celebrates TD With GF (A Cowboys Cheerleader)
David’s girlfriend happens to be Kelsi Reich, a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. Even though the Bills went on to lose, Nelson might have been the envy of many people in Jerry World:
Don’t Kick The Ball To Devin Hester
Seriously, Detroit! Kicking the ball to the potential Hall of Famer is never a good decision but they did it anyway. (You also have to like how Fox’s announcing team of Brian Billick and Thom Brennaman comment on how great the punt is!)
Then, Devin returned the punt nearly 82 yards for the 17th kick or punt return touchdown of his career:
Lions and Bears Fight, Oh My!
Later in that Bears/Lions game, both teams got into an altercation after an interception of Detroit’s Matthew Stafford by Chicago’s Tim Jennings.
During the return, Stafford gets blocked trying to make the tackle by the Bears DJ Moore which starts a bench-clearing fight near the Lions sidelines and Moore’s eventual ejection.
Couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn, huh?
Don’t look now but the Broncos are only a game out of the AFC West’s top spot and another classic Tim Tebow performance propelled the Broncos to a win over the Chiefs.
Tebow only completed 2 passes in the game… you read that correctly… TWO PASSES THE ENTIRE GAME… but one was this beautiful 56 yard TD pass to Eric Decker:
Monday Night Preview: Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers
For Week 10, Monday Night Football travels to Wisconsin as the undefeated Packers face off against their NFC North rivals from Minnesota. The Packers are still the only undefeated team left in the NFL and the Vikings will look to play spoiler as rookie quarterback Christian Ponder makes his third NFL start.
Green Bay’s offense last week shredded the Chargers and considering the way Aaron Rodgers has played so far this season, (24 TDs, 3 INTs). I expect Minnesota will keep this game interesting, considering how close the prior meeting in week 7 was, but the Packers offense is so unstoppable recently, why should we bet against them?
Coed Record So Far: 4-2 (Losses: Eagles, Ravens = Never Pick Birds On Monday Night)
