What a great week four in the NFL. A fan really couldn’t ask for much more entertainment, drama, and suspense. Week four saw the entertainment of the irresistible force of the Saints offense squaring off against the immovable object of the Jets defense, the drama of two underrated teams in the Broncos and the Cowboys in an epic battle of will and desire, and the suspense of the Patriots and Ravens fighting to the bitter end. Then to top off the week we saw Brett Favre facing his former team and teammates in a classic Monday night matchup in which Favre would attempt to make history by having defeated every team in the NFL.
What else could a fan ask for?..... I don’t know, maybe the entertainment of an ounce of offense from the Jets, the drama of the Cowboy’s secondary making a tackle, or the suspense of a goal line stand by the Patriots as opposed to an anticlimactic Raven’s drop on fourth down. We were however provided with an overrated spot in history for the retired/unretired Brett Favre. (Although you can’t knock his performance, I just don’t care that he’s beaten every team over the course of 63 years in the league)
Week four also saw the strong play of Washington and Pittsburgh who both improved their mark to 2-2. Washington entertained us with an impressive 16 to 13 victory over the winless Bucs while Pittsburgh dramatically clung to a 28-0 lead against San Diego pulling off the 38 to 28 victory. And in the game of the week, Cincinnati defeated Cleveland in the longest game of the year thus far. In a suspense filled overtime, both teams managed to hang around midfield until the final seconds when a pass was finally completed by Cincinnati, setting up the game untying field goal. We can only hope Week five will be bring us just as much entertainment, drama, and suspense as week four. And maybe some real history will be made.
