Welcome to Players View’s breakdown of Sunday’s most definitive NFL moments. The Monday Morning Hangover takes a look at the largest chunk of the sixth week’s action.
#10 The Atlanta Falcons Need To Step Up
You can only dodge bullets for so long and for the third week straight, Atlanta almost gift wrapped a victory for a team that they should have defeated. The old football proverb about good teams finding a way to win only goes so far.
#9 The Dallas Cowboys Are The Unluckiest Team In Sports
The evidence that the Cowboys are cursed is so convincing it’s ridiculous.
But wait a minute.
Do they just find a way to collapse in crucial moments?
I’ll take curtain number two for $500.
How could coach Jason Garrett and his quarterback Tony Romo BOTH mismanage the closing seconds of their game against the Ravens is beyond me.
There is no reason why they did not run at least one more play to edge their kicker closer for the game winner.
It was sloppy, it was clumsy and it was something that even a high school group could have pulled off.
#8 The Jets (Sorta) Got Their Swagger Back
They were not crushed by the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football as predicted, they were just defeated.
They used that minimal slice of self-esteem and went back to the ground-and-pound formula that works for them and stuck it to the Colts.
The Jets may not even make the playoffs but they can at salvage some sort of dignity in this a year where they have lost a lot.
If they can pull off a Week 7 victory over the Patriots, seriously all bets are off.
#7 The Packers Showed Up For Work
Aaron Rodgers dismantled the Texans defense in the offensive display of strength that we have grown accustomed to.
They did it with an injured and disgruntled Jermichael Finley, a patchwork running game and without their number one receiver Greg Jennings.
J.J. Watt had a few moments to shine but as a whole his now mortal Texans team got it handed to them. Speaking of which…
#6 The Texans DO Need Brian Cushing
When linebacker Brian Cushing was lost for the year on Monday night, the Texans and even Cushing himself issued propaganda that stated that with or without Cushing they were as good as ever.
The Packers dismantled that theory as they tore up the second level of the Texans defense on Sunday night.
You don’t replace a guy like Cushing but they are certainly second-guessing trading ILB Demeco Ryans to the Eagles for almost nothing in the off-season.
#5 The Eagles Are Almost Down For The Count
Unless their fans, their local media and their team unites and learns to look at the bright side of things, the finger pointing is going to break the will of this team.
Yes they have not generated sacks, yes Michael Vick needs to protect the football and yes the offensive line has some work to do.
These things are the self-evident.
But with the Cowboys slipping on banana peels, the Redskins only winning every couple of games or so and a win over the Giants, the Eagles can still easily take the NFC East.
Like the song says, “Don’t Worry Be Happy.”
