So after each Browns game I pick my winners and losers for the game. Since the Browns played last Thursday, I thought we’d open up today with a league wide winners and losers piece. I mean hey, what else are we going to talk about this morning?
Alright. League wide winners and losers from yesterday. Go…
LOSERS: Detroit Special Teams. Wow. The Lions gave up a kick-off return for a score and a punt return for a score in their 20-13 loss to the Vikings. The Lions fall to 1-3 in a season they had playoff expectations. They four teams they played so far had a regular season record of 27-37 last year, and if you take San Francisco out of the equation, they were 14-34. Yikes.
WINNERS: The Usual Suspects. Brady, Manning, Rodgers and Brees combined for 1,443 yards passing (all over 300 yards), 13 TDs, 1 Interception and 3 wins. Why not 4? Well, Brees and Rodgers played each other. Think QB play is important in this league? Look at the rest of the QB numbers. Insane.
WINNER: Brian Hartline. Gotta give a shout out to a Buckeye alum who had a career game. Hartline had 12 catches for 253 yards and a TD.
LOSERS: Buffalo Bills. I would like to know what happened to that team. The last time I checked they were up 21- 7 in the third quarter and looked like it was their day against the Patriots. Tight End Scott Chandler was having a great game with 4 catches and 2 TDs. Those were his final numbers, and the Patriots rattled off 6 straight TDs. The Patriots needed that win, as they would have fallen to 1-3. Instead they join the Bills and Jets in that division at 2-2.
