Week 8

We have officially made it halfway through the season. 8 weeks down and 8 to go. Some divisions remain close, while others are more lopsided. Whatever the case, 8 weeks is a lot of time for a things to happen so we don't truly know what the final regular season results will bring. Before we get too ahead of our selves, here are the results from week 8:

Scores & Results:

Arizona Cardinals 23 (4-4).............New York Jets 35 (3-5)
Miami Dolphins 31 (3-5).........New England Patriots 37 (7-1)

Detailed Recap:

The top story for the week is something we all never thought would happen this season, let alone happen twice! I'm talking about a team completely shutting out their opponent. It happened again, but this time it was the Seattle Seahawks shutting out the Oakland Raiders 23 to 0. The first time this happened was back in week 2 where the Cleveland Browns shut out the Cincinnati Bengals. Both games the home team shutout the away team AND both match ups were divisional games. Completely nuts and if it happens for a third time I might just lose it.

Speaking of the Cleveland Browns, they pulled off one of the biggest upsets this entire season thus far. The Browns managed to beat the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs, in Kansas City nonetheless! It had to be decided in overtime where the Browns put the game away with a touchdown and kept themselves in competition with the Steelers for the AFC Central Division title.

That was not the only game to end in overtime, the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings found themselves in overtime to find a winner. It wasn't until about 15 seconds left in OT when the Minnesota Vikings were able to score a field goal and pick up the win. The Packers went from 6-0 to 6-2 in two weeks. We see the Bills declining, and is it possible that the Packers are following them? Only time will tell!

The final story for this week is of an opposite tone. The Los Angeles Rams kept their undefeated record alive with an easy win over the New Orleans Saints 49 to 9. The Rams are the only team left that has not lost a game. Their undefeated record will be in jeopardy next week and we'll just have to wait and see if they can keep it going.

Thank you to everyone that has been following along for making it halfway through the regular season with me. It's been really fun for me so far and I hope you will all stay with me for the next 8 weeks of the season.
