With the Browns on bye week, we thought everyone might like to chime in on the games they watched instead of the Browns this Sunday. So who did you see? Who was the big winner? Who blew it?
WINNER: Jacksonville Jaguars. Literally. For the first time this season. Congratulations Jacksonville. Sure it took a holding in the end zone for a safety and a fumble return for a touchdown to beat Tennessee by two points, but who’s counting? In the end that 1-7 record looks better than the goose egg for eight.
LOSER: Tampa Bay. I know it’s harsh to put the Bucs in the loser column before their game tonight, but Jacksonville’s win means Tampa is the only team in the league without a win. No pressure.
WINNER: Peyton Manning. Four more touchdown passes on Sunday for a total of 29 on the season. That’s 14 more than the Browns’ trio of Weeden/Campbell/Hoyer. He also has 800 more yards passing than the Browns. That’s almost 100 more yards per game.
WINNER: Tavon Austin. Wow. The rookie finally had a break-out performance. Two catches… for 138 yards and two touchdowns! Plus, he had a 98 yard punt return for a touchdown. That’s 236 all purpose yards on three touches!
LOSER: Houston Texans. You know how the turnover margin is supposed to be a great indicator of who wins the game? Well, the Texans won the turnover war against Arizona 3-1 and still lost the game. The Texans are now 2-7 on the season, when most publications had them as the winner of the AFC South preseason. Yikes.
Now it’s your turn. What did you see that you liked? Any str
