NFL SPOTLIGHT / WEEK 10

Two-Minute Drill

November 06, 2000|JIM BARRERO

MIAMI 23, at DETROIT 8

Lion Coach Bobby Ross sounded like a beaten man after a futile display by his team: "This is one of the most embarrassing losses I have ever had." Just think, we'd hear this every week if he were still in San Diego.

BUFFALO 16, at NEW ENGLAND 13 (OT)

Steve Christie comes to the rescue again, breaks hearts all over New England and the clam chowder on dinner tables everywhere just doesn't seem to taste quite as good.

at CHICAGO 27, INDIANAPOLIS 24

Many of us didn't figure the Bears would win again this season with a backup quarterback taking over. Just think how good they'll be when Cade McNown returns from injury.

TAMPA BAY 27, at ATLANTA 14

In case you cared, Falcon Coach Dan Reeves isn't about to give up on his 3-7 team, saying, "We won't surrender." Chris Chandler better hope he isn't called into active duty any time soon.

BALTIMORE 27, at CINCINNATI 7

Shannon Sharpe calls Cincinnati the "NFL's Siberia" but it would have been the Ravens who would have been left out in the cold by the city of Baltimore if they'd failed to score again.

at TENNESSEE 9, PITTSBURGH 7

The Steel Curtain 2000 stretched its streak to 20 consecutive quarters without allowing a touchdown. So where's Terry Bradshaw and Lynn Swann when you need them?

NEW YORK GIANTS 24, at CLEVELAND 3

Giant offensive tackle Lomas Brown wants you to know something: "Seven and two is 7-2 in the NFL, regardless." Just like boring football is boring football, regardless.

at NEW ORLEANS 31, SAN FRANCISCO 15

Have we entered into some sort of parallel universe or are the Saints really this good and the 49ers really this bad? San Francisco Coach Steve Mariucci had this to say: "It was shocking."

at PHILADELPHIA 16, DALLAS 13 (OT)

In his return to Philadelphia, Randall Cunningham had nothing but high praise for Eagle quarterback Donovan McNabb. "I had double vision watching him in the third and fourth quarter." You're just old, Randall.

at ARIZONA 16, WASHINGTON 15

Just watch Tuesday as Bill Bidwill rides the wave of enthusiasm in Maricopa County as residents vote on a proposal for a new stadium for the Cardinals. Is this Daniel Snyder's way of helping?

DENVER 30, at NEW YORK JETS 23

Brian Griese was simply intoxicating in leading the Broncos to victory as the Jets found out the hard way that whatever tonic they'd been using to pull out last-second victories doesn't last forever.

at SEATTLE 17, SAN DIEGO 15

How do you allow a guy named Rian Lindell to beat you? Charger Coach Mike Riley summed it up nicely: "It's sickening to lose . . . like that." We think he meant the last-second field goal, not Lindell personally.

at OAKLAND 49, KANSAS CITY 31

It's just the Raiders' luck that kicker Sebastian Janikowski figures out a way to get a bacterial infection in the only part of his body that matters--his left foot--but his teammates pitched in to kick the Chiefs all over the field.

CAROLINA 27, at ST. LOUIS 24

OK, so we were wrong. It does matter who plays quarterback in St. Louis and you can't just plug any old average Joe in there because when Kurt Warner passes for 428 yards, it means 50 points too.
