Should the Colts be encouraged or discouraged after their loss on sunday? Peyton Manning threw 6 interceptions in the loss. It was one of the worst games in his career.
It was the colts second loss in a row to AFC opponents. They can pretty much kiss home field advantage good bye. They might not even beat out the Steelers for second seed.
At the end of the day though you can’t be too concerned for the Colts. They have been riddled by injuries. They were without seven starters in yesterdays loss. Peyton Manning threw 6 interceptions and they were still a 29 yard field goal away from winning the game. Once the playoffs roll around, they should be good.
Best NFC Team: Cowboys or Giants
Both the Cowboys and the Packers had big division wins yesterday. The Packers stomped the Vikings 34-0 in Lambeau field yesterday. The Cowboys went on the Road to the Meadowlands to take on the Giants. They walked away with the victory 31-20.
Both of these teams are very strong. The Cowboys (8-1) have a very balanced and versatile offense with Romo and his mobility. The Packers (8-1) have won 12 of their last 13 games going back to last season.
I’m going with the Packers though. The Packers have the first ranked pass offense and second ranked scoring defense. If they can get home field advantage in the playoffs then they are going to be very tough to beat.
Peterson out for at least one game
Vikings RB extraordinare Adrian Peterson will miss at least one game after tearing part of his knee ligament in their loss against the Packers.
This is a huge loss for the Viks. They were already a one dimensional team but now they look like they are going to be in some trouble after this loss. Chester Taylor is going to have to pick up the slack.
Worst Loss? Saints or Lions
Ok I’ll admit. I was on the bandwagon of both of these teams. Going into week 10 I thought that they were both potentially top tier NFC teams but the New Orleans Saints lost to the winless Rams and the Detroit Lions lost to the Arizona Cardinals on the road.I don’t think I’m ready to give up on the Lions just yet. The Cardinals really exploited the fact that the Lions are a one demensional team. The Saints poor defense was also exposed against the Rams. They made the Rams look like the Patriots or something.
The Lions will be ok but I’m not so sure about the Saints anymore. You can’t let a winless team come into your house and score 37 points on you.
