2010 NFL Week 10 Game Recaps
Falcons 26, Ravens 21
The Ravens eventually got things going and actually took a 21-20 lead with 1:05 remaining, thanks to a Roddy White drop on the previous Atlanta possession. On the Falcons' next and final drive, White scored a 33-yard touchdown amid a controversial non-offensive pass interference call where some claim that he threw a blatant stiff-arm at corner Josh Wilson.
Matt Millen: "Quarterbacks struggle when they are pressured."
Matt Millen: "Twelve men in the huddle! That's a run-off! That's a 10-second run-off! No, the clock was stopped. That's correct."
Bob Papa: "Matt Ryan can't connect to Harry Davis."
Facebook friend Jason R. had a rant about this:
The NFL Network Announcers are debacling my brains. So far they have:
Referred to the Ravens defense as the Raiders defense.
Called Ovie Mughelli Jason Snelling, corrected themselves, then decided that they were right first time.
Called Harry Douglas Harry Davis.
Confused Matt Ryan with Matt Bryant.
Why does Matt Millen still have a job?!
Great question. Millen was somehow able to hold the Lions GM job for a few years too long as well, so he must have naked pictures of his bosses.
Bills 14, Lions 12
Fortunately for Buffalo fans, that wasn't the case because Shaun Hill lobbed a pass way out of the end zone on a two-point conversion attempt with 14 seconds remaining in regulation.
So, congratulations, Bills! You're one win away from ensuring that Andrew Luck won't be your franchise quarterback!
Bears 27, Vikings 13
Wilf will keep Childress around for next week's game against the Packers. If the Vikings lose that - giving them their seventh defeat - Childress will definitely be gone.
Jets 26, Browns 20
Had Holmes not evaded Ward, the Jets would have tried a field goal to avoid a possible tie and Cleveland cover. Nick Folk was 2-of-5 on the day, so there's a good chance he would have whiffed again.
Sanchez was actually limping around at the beginning of the fourth quarter following a sack, and looked like he shouldn't have been on the field. Despite the fact that Mark Brunell warmed up on the sidelines, Sanchez stayed in and did a great job of leading the Jets to a victory.
Colts 23, Bengals 17
The Bengals, who outgained the Colts by 85 yards, shot themselves in the foot over, and over, and over again. Consider the following:
- Carson Palmer (31-of-42, 292 yards, 2 TDs, 3 INTs) tossed a pick-six in the first quarter when he stared down his receiver.
- The Colts scored their only other touchdown off a Cedric Benson fumble.
- The Bengals had a Chad Ochocinco touchdown nullified by a penalty.
- Cincinnati punted on 4th-and-1 on Indianapolis' 42 in the second half. On the next drive, the team suffered a false start on 4th-and-1 on the Colts 43. On the following possession, Palmer took a sack on 3rd-and-2 on Indianapolis' 41. All of that great field position netted nothing.
- The Bengals had multiple deep passes that just fell short. Two went off the fingertips of Ochocinco (7-86, TD). Another dropped right in front of Terrell Owens (4-64), who lost the ball in the lights.
- On Cincinnati's final drive, Jermaine Gresham (9-85, TD) fumbled in Colts territory.
Jaguars 31, Texans 24
Berman: It's a Hail Mary! What do you do, Tom!?
Jackson: Knock it down!!!!
Umm... maybe you want to re-think that strategy, guys. In a tie at the end of regulation, Texans corner Glover Quin knocked David Garrard's Hail Mary down - and right into the arms of Mike Thomas.
It was unbelievable. The Texans always seem to find a way to screw themselves. Jacksonville shouldn't have even had the ball; tight end Joel Dresseen fumbled in Jaguars territory to ruin a potential field goal attempt seconds earlier.
Houston sucked at tackling throughout. On one of the most humiliating sequence of events this season, the Jaguars scored on a nine-play, 52-yard drive in the second quarter. Every single play on the possession was a Maurice Jones-Drew or Rashad Jennings rushing attempt. Jones-Drew rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries.
You won't hear it on the SportsCenter highlights, but as it happened, Gus Johnson went berserk, "THAT'S A TOUCHDOWN!!!! THAT... THAT IS A TOUCHDOWN!!! THAT IS A TOUCHDOWN!!!"
Dolphins 29, Titans 17
In all seriousness, Chad Pennington started this game, but threw just two passes (1-2, 19) before injuring his shoulder yet again. Chad Henne stepped in and was his usual erratic self, though he must be given credit for making some nice throws despite not getting much work during the week.
However, Henne (19-of-28, 240 yards, TD, INT) suffered what could be a season-ending knee injury at the end of the the third quarter. The Dolphins ran some Wildcat until the beginning of the fourth quarter and then inserted Tyler Thigpen under center. Thigpen actually looked really good, going 4-of-6 for 64 yards and a score. He's worth picking up in fantasy leagues.
On the bright side, Moss definitely opened up some running lanes for Chris Johnson, who totaled 117 yards and a touchdown on just 17 carries.
Buccaneers 31, Panthers 16
Broncos 49, Chiefs 29
This contest eventually got out of hand so it didn't matter, but if this weren't a blowout, the Chiefs would definitely have something to complain about.
Seahawks 36, Cardinals 18
Making the start after a one-game absence, Matt Hasselbeck went 22-of-34 for 333 yards and a touchdown. He missed some time in this contest with a broken bone in his non-throwing wrist, and while he was out, Charlie Whitehurst tossed an unbelievably horrid near-pick-six. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie intercepted the weakly thrown sideline pass and almost scored. Fortunately, Hasselbeck returned.
Cowboys 33, Giants 20
Seriously, where did this come from? Why couldn't the Cowboys play like this before? Why did it take the firing of Wade Phillips for this team to play as hard as it did on Sunday? And did this unexpected performance have anything to do with the power outage in the second half at New Meadowlands Stadium?
49ers 23, Rams 20
The 49ers really outplayed St. Louis; they had 14 penalties, including nine in the first half. A whopping three touchdowns were nullified by infractions, and all were legitimate calls. Two of them were Anthony Davis holds on Chris Long, who was pretty much unblockable in this contest. San Francisco also had a Sam Bradford interception negated by a penalty.
In the end though, San Francisco won and kept itself alive in the NFC West race. Unfortunately, left tackle Joe Staley fractured his fibula and could be out 4-6 weeks.
Patriots 39, Steelers 26
Brady went 30-of-43 for 350 yards and four touchdowns (three pass, one rush). He was pretty much flawless all evening, and on one poor drive, he fired everyone up on the sidelines, screaming at the offensive players that they had to be perfect to beat the Steelers.
