Eagles 45, Giants 38. This looked more like a game of Madden set with 8-minute quarters than an NFC East showdown. Plenty of bizarre calls, blown coverages, and weird plays were good enough to keep people awake in this one, even though everyone knew the Giants were gonna lose.
Colts 28, Broncos 16. Someone else whose stock is down: Broncos coach Josh McDaniels, whose Broncos are 2-5 since their bye week. The Colts, conversely, broke an NFL record yesterday with their 22nd consecutive win, which is easier than it sounds when you share a division with the Jags, Texans, and Titans.
Patriots 20, Panthers 10. The biggest matchup in this game might have been petulant Oakland Raider Randy Moss taking over for the “keeping his nose clean” New England Patriot Randy Moss. Moss had all of one catch (for 16 yards) and was booed off the field after half-assing a few routes, dropping a pass and giving away a fumble, and probably also for being black.
