NFL Week 15 Early Game Thoughts

A few things we know after Sunday's early games from week 15:

  • There aren’t enough expletives for Giants head coach Tom Coughlin to spew after his team’s 38-31 loss to the Eagles where Philly scored the last 28 points of the game.  Why punter Matt Dodge let DeSean Jackson anywhere near the football on the final play of the game is beyond reason, especially after he returns it 65-yards for the game-winning touchdown.   Check out the final play right here from NFL/Fox: 
  • The other epic fail of the day comes in Tampa where the Bucs see their playoff hopes go down the tubes by letting the Lions come in and beat them in overtime, 23-20.  Yes folks, it’s the same Detroit team that had lost their previous 26 on the road!
  • The demise of the Indianapolis Colts is indeed premature.  When push came to shove Sunday, the Colts shoved the Jaguars back and prevented Jacksonville its first ever AFC South Title.  With two wins in the final two weeks, the Colts can take that crown once more.
  • How pathetic is the Dolphins offense? The fact that they had to rely on Dan Carpenter to miss four long FG’s is unforgivable and a microcosm for Miami’s season.
  • Baltimore’s 30-24 win over New Orleans was big time!  Ray Rice has returned to his former dangerous self once more.
  • OK, maybe Mike Shanahan was right.  Rex Grossman throws for 300 yards and 4 TD’s but the fact remains – the Redskins still lose and aren’t very good.
  • Chiefs QB Matt Cassel is a football stud.  Playing just about 10 days after an appendectomy and leading his team to a 27-13 win in St.Louis shows big ones, very big ones!
