The Game that Could Have Been:
It was rather disappointing to see Tony Romo didn’t play on Sunday, with what could have been an awesome regular season matchup, and still has the potential of being an NFC Championship preview. Still, you gotta think the Cardinals are legit. Only team without 2+ losses, and the first to hold DeMarco Murray to under 100 yards. They have also beaten the Eagles and Cowboys in back to back games.
Rams Strike Again!
I reverted to my days before the ability to watch most games, staring at a Gamecast and waiting a minute between plays to read the text of what happened. Having them get into field goal range with plenty of time left was nerve wracking. At that point OT seemed like a given, if not the win. They had 3 plays within the 2 yard line, and couldn’t punch it in. Admittedly, the Kaepernick fumble was very controversial, and after seeing highlights I think he actually scored, but the Football Gods rewarded the Rams after blowing 2 big leads.
The Game that Could Have Been #2:
The Patriots Broncos matchup also ended up being a little bit of a dud. Of course everybody freaks out at the fact to see a matchup with 2 of the greatest QBs in NFL history, but you expect a game like last year and not a 22 point thrashing. Brady has dominated the series between the 2 QBs, going 11-5.
