Monkey rides dog, sadly no Tebowing involved


A monkey takes the reins during Denver's halftime show, partnering with a dog to treat the fans to some inter-species hijinks.

Posted by Ryan Wilson

A dog-riding monkey was the halftime entertainment for the Patriots-Broncos game. This is not a euphemism. There really was a monkey riding a dog. The monkey was well-dressed (as monkeys go), the dog was saddled, and it was quite possibly the most bizarre spectacle we've seen since, well, Tebow took over the Broncos starting job from Kyle Orton in October.

It's a battle of strengths in Denver: The Broncos' running game vs. the Patriots' passing game and 30 minutes into this week's Game of the Century, the New England Patriots lead 27-16 at the half.

Denver got off to fast start, scoring touchdowns on their first two drives, and converting a field on the third. The Broncos also racked up 175 rushing yards in the first two quarters, averaging a whopping 8.8 yards per carry.

Tim Tebow completed 5 of 8 throws for 68.

Brady, meanwhile, was 12 of 22 for 171 and two touchdown passes, and he rushed for another.

The Broncos' offense looked unstoppable in the first quarter but turnovers by Lance Ball, Tebow and Quan Cosby led to the Patriots scoring 20 unanswered points to take a 27-16 lead at the break. Denver had just seven offensive plays in the second quarter.

Chiefs end Packers hopes for an undefeated season

J. Battle managed the only Kansas City touchdown of the day (US Presswire).By Josh Katzowitz

The 19-game winning streak is over. The chance for an undefeated season has gone with it. And Romeo Crennel has made quite a debut as the Chiefs head coach.

With a tough defense that limited Green Bay’s top-rated offense to just 315 net yards and two touchdowns, the Chiefs pulled off the massive upset with a 19-14 win at Arrowhead Stadium. In Crennel’s first game coaching the franchise that fired Todd Haley last Monday, he took a major step forward in possibly dropping the interim tag from his title and officially making himself Haley’s successor.

As dominant as the Packers have been this season, they really hadn’t needed to fight through much adversity. They hadn’t been behind in the fourth quarter at all this season, and while I’m not suggesting that the Packers have been exposed in a major way, the other high-level NFC teams (New Orleans, for example) have to take confidence from the performance put on by the Chiefs.

Kansas City recorded four sacks on Aaron Rodgers (17 of 35 for 235 yards, one touchdown), three of them courtesy of Tambi Hali. But part of the reason for that was that Green Bay, which lost Bryan Bulaga, was down to its third-string left tackle.

Yet, Kansas City was impressive in taking advantage.

Kyle Orton, making his first start in a Kansas City uniform, had a wonderful day, completing 23 of 31 passes for 299 yards. While the Chiefs had a tough time scoring touchdowns in the red zone, settling for four-straight field goals before Jackie Battle’s 1-yard run, the inclusion of Orton is clearly a big step-up from Tyler Palko.

But there is one team more excited by this win than Kansas City. That would be the 1972 Dolphins. For at least another season, their record is safe.

Colts beat Titans, 27-13, for first win of season

There is a God: Indy finally gets a win. (US PRESSWIRE)

By Ryan Wilson

The Colts' 2011 nightmare is over. For the Titans, it's just begun.

Indianapolis was a perfect 0-13 heading into Week 15 with no real chance at avoiding a repeat performance of what the Lions accomplished in 2008: 0-16.

Instead, to everyone's surprise, Indy took it to division rival Tennessee Sunday, 27-13, intercepting quarterback Matt Hasselbeck twice (Jacob Lacey returned for a touchdown -- it was the first interception by a Colts' cornerback all year).

While Indy gets their first real victory of 2011 (they've had several moral victories), the loss is a disaster for Tennessee's playoff hopes.

The Titans came into Sunday one game behind the Jets for the final wild-card spot. The matchup with the Colts was supposed to be a formality; Tennessee would get to 8-6 with Jacksonville and Houston left on the schedule. Instead, the Titans now need the Jets to lose two of three and pray they can find a way to win out.

Other notable storylines: Dan Orlovosky, originally drafted by the Lions in 2005, earns his first NFL victory. He went 0-7 with the '08 Lions and was 0-2 with the Colts this season prior to the Titans' unwittingly spreading holiday cheer.

As for that '08 Lions team, they can break out the champagne '72 Dolphins style, since it appears their record will be safe for at least another season.
