Three For Three

Vikings- win! Eagles- win! My fantasy team- (about to) win!

It was a good weekend for football. The Vikings, while they should've won by a lot more, beat the Lions in Detroit, making a winless season by the Lions much more likely. This happened despite Gus Frerotte getting hurt and Tarvaris Jackson having to actually play- he didn't even look that bad. My favorite moment, though, was when Jared Allen proved his bad-ass credentials- after a dirty hit, he tried to limp over to the guy who hit him, despite being restrained by teammates.

The Eagles, meanwhile, quieted all the Reid and McNabb haters by beating the NFC's best team, the Giants, in New York. In doing so they actually ran the ball more than they threw it, converted most of their third downs, and even stopped the run. I know, everyone's going to credit the team finally running the ball, but I'd say the key has been that Westbrook is healthy (something like six touchdowns in the last two games.) They couldn't have run the ball even if they tried while he was still banged up.

Finally my team, the Silver Surfers, reached the semi-finals despite a 5-7 regular season record. I was way behind until Romo and T.O. (both of whom I have) connected for a touchdown at the end of the first half. I'm now back by two points, but I have Matt Bryant going tonight, while my undefeated-all-year opponent has no one. Finals, here I come.

I hope your fantasy team loses! You went against the Steelers!?!?
