1. Peyton Makes History– Favre sat at 508 entering the day, Peyton sat at 506. Three years ago, Peyton couldn’t even throw a football over 20 yards after injuring his neck that forced him to miss an entire season. 2012, he wins comeback player of the year in his first season in Denver, throws 55 touchdown passes in a single season and wins his fifth MVP. Last night he became the all-time leader in touchdown passes thrown. Another incredible milestone set by an all-time great.
2. Florida State Squeaks By Notre Dame– This was one of the best games I’ve seen all season long whether it was the NFL or College. You had two 6-0 teams under the lights and it was as good as advertised. Notre Dame came out firing on all cylinders in the first half. Constant pressure on Jameis and controlling the line of scrimmage. Give credit to Florida State for making the necessary adjustments in the second half to get themselves back in the game. The Seminoles won this one by four points to remain unbeaten.
3. Rams Upset Seahawks– Seattle was in the news all last week. They lost a game at home to Dallas and they traded away arguably their best offensive player in Percy Harvin. This wasn’t going to be an easy game, no game in this sport is because anybody can win on any given Sunday. The Rams took a page out of the Cowboys playbook and ran the ball as often as they could and Seattle had such a tough time stopping it. When the Rams had Seattle down, they kept them down.
4. Cowboys Win Sixth Straight Game– The Cowboys did it once again. After their big win in Seattle, they were looking to keep momentum in their favor once again this time over a rival in the Giants. DeMarco ran for 100 yards once again as he’s eclipsed the 100 yard rushing mark in each game this season. Romo played well and the defense did their part. With this win, the Cowboys now own the best record in football at 6-1.
5. Chiefs Snap Chargers Winning Streak– When I saw this game on the schedule entering the week, I knew this would be one of those grind it out type of football games. Two teams who know each other well. Kansas City is still a good football team. No, they haven’t got off to the start they did last season but they play hard and they keep themselves in football games. The Chargers defense is questionable now because they couldn’t get off the field yesterday. Now it’s a short work week and off to Denver for San Diego.
