NFL Week 8

By | October 31, 2017

Well, to say that the Baltimore Ravens beat the Miami Dolphins would certainly be an understatement of the century. They absolutely crushed them with the final score, Ravens 40 – Dolphins 00. It’s almost as if they had a pre-planned schedule to play to as well, because at halftime they were halfway there at 20-00.

The Dolphins looked like they might actually get a score on the board when they were in scoring range after a couple of good passes by Matt Moore. But, the drive was stalled and a 50-yard field goal was missed by Cody Parkey.

There was a nasty and scary situation late in the second quarter when Ravens Flacco slid for the first down but received a nasty knock by Kiki Alonso, leaving Flacco with a concussion. Both teams got into a scuffle after the incident while Flacco headed straight to the medical tent.

Jimmy Smith scored the final defensive touchdown to seal the Dolphins’ fate … well, that was sealed well before the final score.

Injuries That End A Season For Some

Zach Miller, the Chicago Bears TE suffered a crippling knee injury in the game at New Orleans Saints on Sunday. The real kicker (no pun intended) was that he suffered the knee injury on what was initially declared a touchdown. It was then overturned by the replay officials.

Miller has had surgery on the knee which was successful but quite extensive. He tore a popliteal artery and had to have a vein taken from his good leg to repair the damaged artery! He’s still got a bit of the way to go but he is in good spirits.

Sadly, he not only lost his touchdown but the Bears lost to the Saints with a final score 12 (Bears) – 20 (Saints).

Joe Staley of the San Francisco 49ers suffered a fractured orbital bone in their game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles won the game but Staley will be out for the next couple of weeks.

Defensive End for the Texans, Christian Covington, is quite possibly out for the rest of the season from a torn bicep. That’s a real blow to the Texans who have already lost Defensive End, J.J. Watt and Outside Linebacker, Whitney Mercilus for the rest of the season.

A few minor injuries ended the game on the night for some, so we’ll keep an eye out for those next week.

A Few NFL Week 8 Highlights

We’ve been talking about how well the Chiefs have been doing … well, until they lost 2 in a row but up until then they were undefeated, but on the other end of the scale, the Cleveland Browns are yet to WIN a game. Eight straight losses. That’s gotta be soul destroying.
