More NFL Week 15 Upsets

As I mentioned earlier, there were a ton of upsets this week. The early week games, the early Sunday games, and then the late afternoon and evening games today kept the dogs howling. There were just three afternoon games today, but the one that will have everyone talking is the Eagles at Cowboys game, where the Eagles walked into Texas Stadium and handed Dallas just their second loss of the season, beating the home team 10-6. Tony Romo had an awful day, most likely due to the fact that the Jumbotron kept showing his new girlfriend, Jessica Simpson, in her white and pink Cowboys jersey. I’ve never wanted one so bad.

The Packers are now tied at 12-2 with Dallas for the NFC lead. Dallas owns the tiebreaker, but need to maintain their placement or else the NFC Championship game could go through Green Bay. Not a friendly place in late January.

In the evening game, it was the Washington Redskins at the Giants. With Todd Collins starting for the first time in 10 years and 2 days – the longest time between starts for a quarterback in NFL history – Joe Gibbs and his team weathered a horrible day for the G-men and came away with an 18-point win, 22-10, keeping them in the NFC playoff berth hunt. Eli Manning threw 34 completions, the most since Joe Namath threw 36 in 1967. To be fair, his receivers looked like high school first-timers most of the night, dropping at least eight, if not ten, passes that should definitely have been caught. Jeremy Shockey went down with a broken leg in the game.

As one might expect, the FanYard crew had the Yardstick for each of these games favoring the losing squad. A rare bad day / week.
