The season marches on, with the sixth Hakkapeliitat victory in a row.
The highest individual scorer this week was no single player, but the stingy Giants’ defense, that manhandled Detroit Lions with three picks, a forced fumble and a blocked kick as an added bonus.
Neither quarterback shone, chose Browns’ Anderson, and he came away with a slightly better output than his counterpart in the Saints. No thrown touchdowns, very decent yardage and a scrambled score for a surprise.
Atlanta’s offense was very subdued against Tampa Bay, and even the most prolific scorer, Eagles’ Brian Westbrook was held without a touchdown (partially explained by Donovan McNabb getting hurt before the halftime, which cut down on the passing game).
Thankfully the opponent had an off-kilter week as well. Especially Peyton Manning was subdued – the lone Colts TD was off the running game, and the victory was sealed by skillful clock management at the end. Titans’ Rob Bironas didn’t provide a kickfest on monday, and with Brandon Marshall evening the game scoring for the Broncos, the week’s margin remained the same as it was on sunday.
Bring on week twelve.
