NFL two-minute drill

A quick-hitting look at Week 9 around the league.

November 07, 2010|By Athan Atsales

at Cleveland 34, New England 14: Patriots suspect only explanation for loss is Browns Coach Eric Mangini must have picked up pointers somewhere on how to spy on the opposition.

N.Y. Jets 23, at Detroit 20 (OT): Lions' lament — if only they could have given defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh more time to warm up for kicking extra points. Really.

San Diego 29, at Houston 23: Apparently, Chargers' Norv Turner doesn't have any idea how to coach until the losses and injuries pile up and all seems lost.

at Baltimore 26, Miami 10: Miami came into the game a perplexing 4-0 on the road and 0-3 at home. Ravens are glad the Dolphins got that straightened out.

Chicago 22, Buffalo 19: Bills are now winless in two countries, but more efficient. Their previous two losses were by three in overtime. This time in Toronto, they delivered in regulation.

at Atlanta 27, Tampa Bay 21: Stopped two yards shy of pulling off their fifth comeback victory of the season, the Buccaneers might consider trying to take a lead before the fourth quarter.

at Minnesota 27, Arizona 24 (OT): Coach Brad Childress would like to present a game ball to Randy Moss for being as far away from the Vikings as possible.

New Orleans 34, at Carolina 3: Saints said they finally feel like the Super Bowl championship team of last season. Of course, it's not every week you get to play the Panthers.

N.Y. Giants 41, at Seattle 7: In first NFL start, Charlie Whitehurst produces first Seattle TD since second quarter against Arizona two weeks ago. Seems like a capable replacement.

at Philadelphia 26, Indianapolis 24: The Eagles are a different team with Michael Vick at quarterback instead of Kevin Kolb. They actually scare someone other than their fans.

at Oakland 23, Kansas City 20 (OT): An explanation for Raiders fans, whose team is above .500 for the first time since Game 3 in 2004: Above .500 means more victories than losses.

at Green Bay 45, Dallas 7: Only suspense for Cowboys games is whether owner Jerry Jones will admit afterward that Bum's son is a bum too and must be fired as coach.

Bye: Denver, Jacksonville, St. Louis, San Francisco, Tennessee, Washington.
