With two weeks left in the season, the NFC East, NFC West and AFC North titles are still up for grabs, not to mention the four Wild Card spots.
It was a tough week for the Top 10, as the Niners, Giants, Ravens and Bears all lost. The Steelers, Bengals, Seahawks and Redskins are all poised and ready to crack the rankings.
No one was more pleased with the Giants than Adam Merchant. The 15-year-old fan from Barre, Vt., attended Friday’s practice and Sunday’s game, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Their 38-10 win on Sunday night repositioned the Giants statistically and mentally, giving them a two-game lead over Dallas and Washington and putting about a million miles of separation between them morale-wise.
The NFL season has not even reached the halfway point, but the fire under the seat of 10 head coaches is already quite hot.
The New York Jets are emerging from their bye refreshed and healthy. The Green Bay Packers appear to be anything but.
Brett Favre arrived in Minnesota on Tuesday and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him in a Vikings helmet and red quarterback’s jersey when the team takes the field for practice on Wednesday.
