Some of them won the game, some of them saved the game and others made for some very impressive eye candy.
Boomer and Craig were happy to discuss a positive, feelgood incident tied to the NFL for a change.
Here are five interesting moments in sports you may have missed this week.
Can you imagine Harry Carson, Lawrence Taylor, Leonard Marshall or Carl Banks being part of a New York Giants’ defense that gave up 350 yards rushing? Strangely enough, the porous Giants’ defense has largely avoided scrutiny this season, but maybe after the Seattle Seahawks plowed to a 38-17 victory at CenturyLink Field that will change.
Antrel Rolle didn’t try and avoid what was an obvious description after the Giants watched Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks run wild on Sunday.
As much as some would like to point to injuries as the main cause for the New York Giants’ (3-5) inferior record, Big Blue will be facing an opponent in the Seattle Seahawks who have listed 14 players on their injury report.
It’s impossible to predict which Giants will show up Sunday in Seattle. But we know one thing for sure – coach Tom Coughlin is bringing a wounded roster to the West Coast.
The New York Giants (3-5) will limp across country, literally and figuratively, to face the defending world champion Seattle Seahawks (5-3) at CenturyLink Field. The Giants lost their third game in a row 40-24 at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, while the Seahawks held off the Oakland Raiders by a closer than expected 30-24 score.
Marshawn Lynch rushed for 110 and two touchdowns, Russell Wilson threw a pair of touchdown passes and the Seattle Seahawks started defense of their Super Bowl title with a 36-16 win over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night.
Fantasy football players are also ready to go all-in on Thursday night. Finding favorable matchups in the first game on the schedule each week gives a player a big edge going into Sunday.
Quarterbacks are breaking records left and right in the pass-happy NFL, but that makes high-caliber running backs all the more valuable. Many of last season’s top performers appear on this list, but keep in mind there’s usually a major bust or two, likely due to the heavy workload of the position causing a hangover effect.
When you win the Super Bowl, there isn’t much to complain about as far as overall team performance is concerned. But here is a look back at what the Seahawks excelled at and aspects of their game that they will need to tighten up next season.
With Seattle having just a handful of players listed on the injury report and with Denver in the double digits, things are looking good for the ‘Hawks.
The Seahawks believe this will be a different game — much different — than the AFC Championship, played in Denver’s altitude and against the Patriots and their beat-up defense.
It’s easy to frame the Marshawn Lynch affair as the quiet athlete pummeled by the press, the self-righteous media wronged by an entitled player who should be honored to be there and to be coveted by the masses. But it’s hardly the case.
