All bark and no bite: That neatly sums up the situation in Philly, where the Eagles fans were apparently nasty enough about T.O. before the game, but his non-existent stats (plus a Cowboys lead) has neutered the vibe inside the stadium.
And, yet, who cares?
The sweetest revenge, of course, is that the Eagles picked off Drew Bledsoe for a game-clinching INT, after the Cowboys got a gift-wrapped PI call that put the ball on the Eagles 7.
(And T.O. nemesis Donovan McNabb had an in-your-face day: 350 yards and 2 TDs.)
Here's the best part: For all the pre-game hype and all the venom spewed by Philly fans, T.O. was a complete non-factor. And the Eagles won.
The Bears are a bonafide juggernaut: Not only did the D come within 1 minute of pitching a shutout, but the offense racked up 40 points. That makes it 156-36 on the season.
Well, Reggie Bush sure picked an awesome moment to score his first NFL TD – a game-winning punt return? That's what we've all been waiting for.
(Meanwhile, Bucs rookie QB Bruce Gradkowski (2 TD passes) is a fantasy winner -- if not one in real life.)
Matt Freaking Leinart. OK, so maybe he's going to be a pretty good NFL QB. Not that it could keep the Cards from a loss.
So much for that Redskins' revived offense. (And so much for ripping a Giants D that was torched in its last game vs. Seattle.)
Wow, the Dolphins really ARE that bad, aren't they? Nice to see spot-starting QB Joey Harrington hasn't lost his touch with the INTs.
If there's a silver lining for the Packers in defeat, I think they found their new RB: Noah Herron (106 yds, 1 TD). From...? Northwestern, naturally.
