Yesterday was a day of thanks and a day of football with two blowouts and nail bitter.
The Detroit Lions blew out the Philadelphia Eagles 45-14 in what will most definitely be the nail in the coffin of Chip Kelly’s career as an NFL coach. Owners tend not to like losing three straight with the last two loses by a combined 90-31 score.
The afternoon game showcased the Panthers putting their undefeated record on the line against Dallas and walked out a 33-14 winner. To add insult to injury, literally, Tony Romo is done for the season breaking his collarbone.
I want to point out that the Panthers Luke Kuechly had two interceptions tying him with Dez Bryant’s total receptions plus Kuechly returned the interceptions for 48 yards and a touchdown where Bryant only had 26 yards on his two passes.
The night game was a Welcome Home event for Brett Favre as the Bears headed in to Green Bay where Jay Cutler has never won… until last night. In a rain soaked game it came down to a last minute goal line stand by the visiting Chicago Bears to eek out a 17-13 win.
