Aaron Rodgers started off the Turkey Day festivities in style, throwing for 348 yards and three touchdowns from 28 passes completed as the Green Bay Packers went on to demolish the Detroit Lions 34-12 yesterday at Ford Field in Detroit. The Lions first found themselves in good position just seconds into the game, after recovering a fumble in the opening kickoff. From there QB Matthew Stafford connected with Calvin Johnson for the lay-up TD from a yard away.
WR Donald Driver was awarded game MVP rights with seven receptions for 142 yards and a touchdown. Rodgers found it easier to locate his receivers yesterday due the improvements in Green Bay’s offensive line. “There were a couple times when I held the ball for 4 or 5 seconds — maybe more,” said Rodgers. “When you have that kind of time with the kind of players that we have, we feel like we’re going to make plays.” The struggling Lions will move on to face the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Devember 6th as the Packers continue to fight for playoff contention the following day against the Baltimore Ravens.
The second NFL event of the day showcased the Dallas Cowboys at home outplaying the Oakland Raiders 24-7. Dallas notched the first score of the game with a field goal in the first quarter. Felix Jones added the pressure with a 46 yard kick return 1:12 into the second. QB Tony Romo later hooked up with Miles Austin and Roy Williams for six apiece to really solidify the win.
“I think we have a lot to prove — just for this season, though,” said Romo. “I don’t think any other season has any bearing whatsoever. For us, it’s strictly about right now and this next game. We’ll go from there.” Oakland is scheduled to play the Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday as the Cowboys travel east to meet the New York Giants.
The evening contest featured the Denver Broncos offense working early and often against a frustrated Giants team at Mile High Stadium. New York, after starting the season 5-0 have now lost their last five of six games, pushing them back to third place behind the Eagles and Cowboys in the NFC East Division standings. “We didn’t have any tempo and we didn’t make any plays,” said Giants coach Tom Coughlin. “We keep talking about winning the physical battle and controlling the line of scrimmage. We thought this would be the night and it wasn’t.”
Broncos QB Kyle Orton had trouble finding the end zone, forcing kicker Matt Prater to keep busy during the holiday with four field goals. This marks Denver’s first November victory, standing one game behind the San Diego Chargers in the AFC West. They will next matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.
Sunday’s NFL action was highly entertaining with close contests all around. The Cowboys scored their only points in the fourth quarter to edge the Redskins 7-6. The Browns and Lions showcased quite the shootout, scoring 75 points combined with Detroit taking the lead by 1 with no time on the clock. The Giants bounced back from their four game losing streak with a field goal in overtime. The Colts and Saints are still undefeated at 10-0, following their wins against the Ravens and Buccaneers. The Titans are set to matchup against Houston tonight at 8:30 PM. Check Week 11 scores below.

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin was glad to see his RB’s take control after last week’s quiet ground game. “We had a game in which we didn’t play very well against the run, so we knew that we would be tested and we would have to rise up and do a better job there,” said Coughlin. “We also knew we needed to rush the ball better than we had, so we did a pretty good job with that.” Tampa Bay first year coach Raheem Morris called his teams performance “completely disastrous.” He had every right to make that statement knowing the Bucs offense created just five first downs (fewest in their franchise history).
New York is now set to square off against the Kansas City Chiefs next Sunday at 1:00 pm. The Buccaneers will look forward to their next game on Sunday as well against the Washington Redskins, who just came off a disappointing loss to the Detroit Lions.

The Miami Dolphins were fighting head to head with the Colts on Monday night, that is until Peyton Manning led his offense for 14 fourth quarter points.

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick decided to give all the snaps to undrafted rookie Brian Hoyer yesterday against the New York Giants, leaving starter Tom Brady and other back up option Andrew Walter to watch from the sidelines. The result turned out better than expected as Hoyer racked up 242 yards from 18 of 25 passes with no interceptions, leading the Patriots past a 21 point first quarter deficit to win 38-27. “Not bad,” said Belichick. “He handled the ball fairly well, threw it accurately.”
The Giants gained the initial lead with an opening drive touchdown led by franchise quarterback Eli Manning. From there David Carr took over and handled the next three series for New York. “I think everyone is ready for the season to get going and start playing for real,” said Manning.
Although New York’s giant first quarter seemed impressive, the only first string Patriots player the two experienced QB’s saw on the defensive end was outside linebacker Pierre Woods. The Patriots and other NFL teams are hungry to get the regular season underway. New England will start their official 2009 campaign against the Buffalo Bills on September 14th at Gillette Stadium.

The New England Patriots are preparing to host the New York Giants this Thursday, September 3rd at 7:30 pm. So far the Pats have played well early on with a 2-1 preseason record. The Tom Brady/Randy Moss combination seems to be back in full effect along with a strong defensive nucleus. This game will mark the fifth consecutive year that the Patriots have squared off against New York before the regular season.
The Giants hold a 1-2 preseason record that includes their thrilling 27-24 victory over the Washington Redskins. It is questionable whether certain starters will get the call to play, knowing official games start in just a week. After Brady was tackled and fell awkwardly on his shoulder against the Washington Redskins, there has been speculation about how healthy he really is.
“Look, we played a physical game against a very physical team…Short-handed game, a lot of guys with bumps and bruises…a lot of guys who played in the game would fall into that category,” said head coach Bill Belichick. “That’s pretty normal after a game like that.”
After Thursday the Pats will look to kick off the regular season in Gillette Stadium verses the Buffalo Bills on September 14th.
