Tom's Take on Sports

 


A lost weekend for area football

     Today is Veterans' Day.  My gracious thanks to the men and women who keep this country free.  Thank you so much for your service for our great country. 
     One of the great benefits of our freedom is watching sports-- even a sports day as bad as yesterday was.  The Indianapolis Colts got smoked yesterday-- at home, no less-- by the St. Louis Rams.  It isn't the "greatest show on turf" Rams of Kurt Warner-- it wasn't even starting QB Sam Bradford...it was Kellen Clements finding Tavon Austin for TD after TD.  Austin even had one on his own-- a 98 yard punt return for a score.  Overall, it was a bad day for the Colts-- and after their great run of play, they were due a bad day.  But hey, they still have a good lead in the AFC South, with no other real challengers...
 
         It looked like my Cincinnati Bengals were also headed for a bad day.  Down 17-0 to an anemic Baltimore Ravens offense, the Bengals came alive-- and connected on a 52 yard touchdown with time expired to tie.  They force overtime-- and what happens?  They lose on a Ravens field goal.  Cincinnati has never been one to follow the script... but-- they are still 6-4 and a game and a half up in the AFC North.  They have Cleveland at home and a bye week before facing the last push in their schedule.  But after the overlime losses to Miami and Baltimore back to back, you got to figure the questions are going to start for a talented Cincinnati team. 

      So there you have it.  A lost weekend for 2 area NFL teams, but both still lead their divisions.  The question marks are there-- but there are still plenty of weeks left to answer those questions....


                                          That's my take-- I'm Tom Lee.
