The Best & Worst of Week 10

Week 10 is in the books, and since we are on a short week, we have to move quickly to the best and worst of the week, with that said, let’s get into it.

THE BEST

(courtesy: Getty Images) The Indianapolis Colts secondary: The tackle on 4th & 2 is going to live in NFL lore forever. The tackle by Melvin Bullitt and the play of rookies Jerraud Powers and Jacob Lacey was amazing. They got torched by Tom Brady and Randy Moss, but they showed up when they needed to, which was at the end. Give this unit credit instead of talking about Belichick’s call.

Sidney Rice: Seven catches, 201 yards, and although he had no touchdowns, this is the quietest 200+ yard receiving game that has been on the record of the NFL. Reason why? A guy named Brett Favre and another one named Adrian Peterson. Come on Brett, if you’re going to give this guy a 200+ receiving game, at least give him ONE touchdown.

The Cincinnati Bengals defense: They took Pittsburgh style of defense in Sunday’s game against the Steelers and used it against them. They held Big Ben and the offense to zero touchdowns, and limited them to four Jeff Reed field goals. They only difference in the game was the kickoff return by Bernard Scott, and that difference has put them in the driver’s seat for the AFC North crown.

THE WORST

Steven Hauschka: Not often you are part of the winning team, and on the worst list, BUT after a missed field goal AND a missed extra point, the Ravens have had enough and gave him the boot. Tough week for the kid.

Brady Quinn: Quinn has had a rough go at it lately, but when you get a second chance to resurrect your career and resurrect the worst NFL club this season, you can not throw away the opportunity. But it’s not all Quinn’s fault, as he has virtually no playmakers. As said in the Monday Night Recap, the city of Cleveland deserves so much better than what they have.

The injured: Michael Turner, Jordan Gross, Ronnie Brown, Marc Colombo, Brian Westbrook, Kyle Orton, and many others that went down just made Week 10 the infirmary week. There were tough breaks (literally and figuratively) for them and their teams, and it will be interesting to see how these teams will bounce back from these injuries to their key players.

THE BEST OF THE WORST

Donovan McNabb- McNabb threw for 450 yards and two touchdowns, but the rest of the Eagles offense was too one-dimensional. It seemed like after Westbrook went down with the concussion, the Eagles just abandoned the running game. McNabb is older than his receivers, but there has to be balance in the offense. Use LeSean McCoy and Leonard Weaver more if you have to, and keep the balance.
