Let’s hear it for the Falcons!!

The Atlanta Falcons remain undefeated, (the only undefeated NFL team) as they took it to the Eagles in Philadelphia (and the rains thanks to the hurricane’s untimely arrival) winning 30-17.  Matt Ryan (MVP?) passed for 262 yards and 3 touchdowns.  There was an interesting and warm moment after the game when both Coach Mike Smith and Falcon’s owner Arthur Blank embraced former Atlanta QB and current Eagle QB Micheal Vick.  Classy acts on the part of both Smith and Blank.

Other NFL action today: Detroit over Seattle 28 – 24; Pittsburgh (in their awful stripped uniforms??) over the Redskins, 27-12; Green Bay over Jacksonville 24 – 25; Chicago over Carolina 23 – 22 thanks to a game winning field goal with time running out; and Andrew Luck and the Colts defeated the Titans in OT 19 – 13.  Also, in a snoozer, San Diego beat Cleveland 7 – 6.

This afternoon’s action features Eli Manning (with the great hair, thanks to the perm) leading the Giants into big “D” to take on Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys.  Just before halftime, the Giants lead 23 – 10.  Dallas has had three turnovers in the first half, all of them interceptions thrown by Romo.

On Sunday Night Football, big brother Peyton is in action as Drew Brees and the Saints will visit Denver to take on the Broncos.

Also, World Series game 4 is tonight!  Giants lead 3-0 and can win it all tonight!!  Stay tuned…
