Happy Monday, everyone!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween and ready for Election Day tomorrow – don’t forget to vote!
Let’s kick-off the week with a brand new ‘Daily Noontime’ – yes, I know you missed us on Friday, but Austin (my dog) and I enjoyed a much-needed day off in the snow. And it was a lot of fun.
So, what are your thoughts about our hometown New England Patriots?
New England has dropped four-straight contests for the first time since 2002 – yikes! – and seems to miss Tom Brady, according to one journalist. Do you agree or disagree?
One journalist – also another ESPN link, FYI! – believes the Patriots dynasty is currently on hiatus, but who really knows?
I thought the Patriots would beat the Buffalo Bills and gain some much-needed momentum heading into their next few contests, but this team seems to be headed in the wrong direction. But if you’re a Bills fan – yes, I know there are probably a few reading this post (hopefully!) – you should be happy with the way your team played yesterday, especially the defense, which made a big stop down the stretch to secured a VERY important divisional win.
Next week, the Patriots will visit the winless New York Jets, which suffered another brutal loss yesterday to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Let’s highlight some other games (and news) from another busy and crazy day from the National Football League (NFL):
- It wasn’t pretty, but the Pittsburgh Steelers defense came up with a BIG stop down the stretch to beat the Baltimore Ravens and remain undefeated. Is this one of the best Steelers teams in franchise history?
- Another non-pretty win occurred last night in Pennsylvania with the Philadelphia Eagles defeating the Dallas Cowboys to secure the top spot in the NFC East. Philadelphia now has three wins while Dallas has two (sigh!).
- Joe Burrow looked pretty good yesterday as the Cincinnati Bengals scored an impressive win over the Tennessee Titans. Perhaps these Bengals are building something special for the future?
- Jordan Wilkins was the player to watch in the second half of yesterday’s 20-point victory for the Indianapolis Colts.
- And finally, Dalvin Cook etched his name in the record book with four touchdowns yesterday against the Green Bay Packers.
