October 22nd Sports Update

Fun sports weekend, huh? Plenty of great action yesterday in the NFL. The Jets lost to the Patriots 29-26 in overtime. I picked this as my upset pick and the Jets proved me right with their effort, but too many costly mistakes cost the Jets. You could look at so many examples, but I will not. Bottom line is the Patriots won. They have the 4-3 record and are now in first place in the AFC East. The Jets showed they can play with anyone, but can't seem to avoid making stupid mistakes.
The Giants were able to defeat the Redskins and during the game, Fred Davis was lost for the year due to injury, so today the Redskins re-signed Chris Cooley. My first blog post was about Cooley being cut, now we have gone full circle as he is back with the Redskins. Still a tough loss for them, as Davis is a great tight end. RGIII looked great yesterday, but it was not enough.
The Texans beat up the Ravens, the Packers looked strong in
St. Louis, the Steelers came back to win on Sunday Night Football in Cincinnati, plenty of great games yesterday. Tonight Jay Cutler and the Bears host Matthew Stafford and the Lions. I expect the Bears to take care of Detroit.
Tonight the Cardinals take on the Giants in Game 7 of the NLCS. The Cardinals had a 3-1 series lead, but now it is tied up 3-3 and Game 7 is in San Francisco, so I expect the Giants to pull this off. However, the Cardinals were down 6-0 in DC in an elimination Game 5, and we all know how that ended. I hope the Giants do win though, because if they don't, who knows how WEPM's own George Pavlik will react? It will probably be ugly.
