The Cowboys gave my Patriots a pretty good run for their money, but thankfully Tom Brady did his thing and in the end, we managed to pull out with a win. That made my day of endless studying/papers a lot better 🙂
My favorite shot of the game:
Finally, pretty boy (shaved head and all, thank goodness) got his act together and drove his team down the field in the last couple of minutes for a touchdown. My man Wes Welker still leads the NFL in receiving yards ❤
At 5-1 (thanks for that, Bills) we’re heading into a bye week for some rest before an interesting schedule (Steelers, Ravens, yay) resumes.
Other football shoutouts:
-New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton is a hardass mofo. One of his own players was pushed out of bounds by the opposing team and ended up bowling right into Payton, rolling over his left leg. Payton had a fractured tibia and torn MCL, last we heard, and was STILL COACHING from the booth for a while. Eventually, though, the pain took over and he had to go to the locker room. His surgery is scheduled for tomorrow, apparently. Here’s hoping he heals soon.
-Congrats to the 49ers! Jim Harbaugh has done a great job with his team and quarterback. At 5-1, they look pretty damn legit. Although last season’s 0-16 Lions still have a heck of a lot to be proud of, at 5-1 as well.
-Aaron Rodgers is still the man. Duh. 6-0 Pack.
Good week in football. At this time next week, hope to be home once more enjoying it with the fam 🙂
