Hello everyone! Welcome to Week 9 of the NFL season.
We witnessed another amazing week with surprises galore! That included the Saints bouncing back with a dominating victory over Green Bay. The real stunner came from Monday night, as Washington held on to defeat Dallas 20-17 in overtime. Philadelphia and Arizona also contested in a heated battle. The Cardinals held on to spoil Nick Foles’ return to Arizona in a nail-biter, 24-20.
The AFC also saw its fair share. Pittsburgh and New England were decidedly victorious against Indianapolis and Chicago, respectively. Meanwhile, the Michael Vick era has begun for the Jets. Unfortunately for them, it wasn’t enough to stop the bleeding against the Bills.
I went 10-5 for Week 8, bringing my total to 77-44. The following is what I got right and wrong.
