On a weekend when what happened between the goal posts seemed rather irrelevant compared to what was firstly being said in a room in Alabama, and then actions occurring along the sidelines up and down the country before kick-off, the Giants went from the ridiculous, to the sublime, and then back to ridiculous again.

So this week’s game was watched on the 20:00 train back up north from London Kings Cross to Darlington after watching the Jacksonville Jaguars ripping the Baltimore Ravens a shiny new arsehole. Thoroughly entertaining stuff and to be honest was lovely to see an Offensive line and Quarter back being perfectly in sync. So the Seahawks game then, to be honest I think I can kinda lay off the O-Line this week for the most part, thank god.
A last-ditch comeback in the final 60seconds of the game is vintage Tom Brady. A man who, at 40 years old, is still showing no signs of becoming vintage himself.
For most of the game Houston QB DeShaun Watson showed every sign of doing the impossible, coming into Gillette Stadium as a rookie QB and coming away with the win. In the Belichick era rookie signal callers are 0-8 when playing in Foxboro (0-9 after Sundays game). Yet, late in the 4th quarter the Texans were to find themselves in the lead at 33-28, the score line testament to a powerful defensive front and a quarterback who has injected life into a previously dormant offense.
There’s no such thing as a trap game!
We hear this so often from players and coaches alike that it might seem like a cliché, but it’s true. Every opponent is dangerous, every team has 53 professional football players on their roster and “on any given Sunday, any team in the NFL can beat any other team.”
On this Sunday, the Bills were 26-16 victors over the Broncos.
This could be fun…
(Prefix: Apologies for the scattered thoughts this week, I am currently away from the UK in holiday staying with a guy who looks like Ray Winstone in Sexy Beast. Please find below my scattered ramblings on the Titan’s 33-27 slobber knocker against Seattle.)
Hope season has come early this year for Titans fans everywhere. This game was the first I have managed to watch live the whole way through and, I must say, the Titans look so much better than they have since the days of Jim Schwartz’s defense.
