NFL updates…

The Atlanta Falcons are 10 – 1.  They survive the Tampa Bay Bucs, 24 – 23.  This is always a close game for the Falcons.  Matt Ryan had a good day, in spite of two turnovers, one interception and one fumble on a sack when he was blind sided.  He threw for 353 yards and Julio Jones, playing injured, had a big day with six receptions for 147 yards.  Good win for the Falcons.  Bucs’ QB Josh Freeman has dropped at least twenty pounds and does not even look like the same person!  Also, good day for Falcons running back Jacquizz Rodgers who is a nice compliment to Micheal “the burner” Turner.  Matt Bryant missed two field goals, one wide left and one wide right.  Very uncharacteristic.  Still, a victory for the Falcons!

Peyton Manning and the Broncos defeated Kansas City, 17 -9.  Peyton had 285 yards passing with 2 touchdowns and one interception.  He was tested for a concussion after taking a hit to the helmet, but not to worry, he is OK!!!

The Bears defeated the Vikings, 28 – 10, with Jay Cutler returning after sitting out due to a concussion.  Jacksonville had a rare victory, defeating Tennessee 21 – 19 with Chad Henne at QB (formerly of Miami).  The Steelers fell to Cleveland, 20 – 14. Big Ben sat out due to a shoulder injury.  Congrats to Big Ben who is now a Daddy, father to a baby boy!

San Francisco led by QB Colin Kaepernick (replacing Alex Smith?) defeated Drew Brees and New Orleans, 31 – 21.  Rookie QB Andrew Luck continues to impress as Indy defeats Buffalo, 20 – 13.  In beautiful San Diego, Baltimore and San Diego went to OT, tied 13 -13.  With 1:12 left, Justin Tucker kicks a game winning field goal for the Ravens, who prevail, 16 – 13.  Great game for running back, Ray Rice.

Tonight, Green Bay visits Eli Manning and the New York Giants!

Also, BCS Poll out in a little over a hour!
