‘niners roll on, with an eight point victory over a rival to the high spots in the standings.
Despite an awkward showing by the Saints’ mainstays (Brees copping three interceptions, the defense ending up with a flat zero in points), there was a bright spot in the New Orleans team: Marques Colston. Now apparently fully headled from a collarbone injury, his 17 points were a nice take for the team. The RBs were steady, though I am starting to worry about the Jags offense creating enough opportunities for MJD. Nate Burleson scored after a drought, but the difference between him on the bench and Miles Austin’s game was only two points – good to have him back, nonetheless, as the bye season is already upon the team.
In the real world NFL the biggest news was Detroit’s loss. To San Francisco, so this was doubly sweet. Nowadays there’s only one unbeaten team – the reigning champions, Green Bay, steamroll along.
Bring on week 7!
