Sunday was one weird-ass day in the NFL.
There were several come-from behind games. Colts coming from 20-7 down to beat the Titans. The Cowboys beating the Bengals thanks to a last-second field goal after being down 19-10 late in the game. The Redskins shocking the Ravens in overtime, a game I had the pleasure of seeing in person.
Then there were the head-scratchers. The Falcons getting pounded by the Panthers and letting Cam Newton run all over the place (that 72-yard run was epic). And perhaps the biggest upset – and the one that hurt the most – my Steelers getting their asses kicked at home to the Chargers.
Then the Texans got boat-raced by the Patriots last night.
Well, those aforementioned games shake up my top ten a bit. Let’s go:
- Green Bay Packers
- New England Patriots
- Denver Broncos
- San Francisco 49ers
- Houston Texans
- Atlanta Falcons
- Indianapolis Colts
- Seattle Seahawks
- New York Giants
- Baltimore Ravens
And yes, I think the Ravens are fraudulent. I wouldn’t be shocked if they don’t win another game the rest of the way and drop out of my top ten altogether (games vs. Broncos, Giants and at Bengals the rest of the way).
