Johnny Football Makes Appearance But Ravens Win, Tony Romo’s Comeback, SuperBowl Rematch Went To Overtime


In the NFL, it was a great weekend of action in a time when the NFL is under extreme scrutiny with the Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson scandals.

Speaking of Rice’s former team, the Baltimore Ravens, they took on the division rival Cleveland Browns.  Browns fans hoped to see Johnny Football on the field, and Johnny Manziel did make an appearance.  Manziel didn’t go out as a quarterback, though,  but rather on a trick play as a wide receiver.  He made a 37-yard grab, but it was called back on account of a penalty. The game was close, but a last second field goal by Justin Tucker gave the Ravens the win.  Baltimore 23, Cleveland 21.

Tony RomoThe Dallas Cowboys may have gotten off to a slow start this season, but they have quickly bounced back.  Yesterday, Tony Romo and the boys took on a Rams team that is looking for an identity.  The Rams were supposed to be the defensive juggernaut, but they give up a lot of points.  The Rams were up early, crushing the Cowboys in the first half.  But, in the 2nd half, different story, as Tony Romo and Dez Bryant went wild and helped the Cowboys get the comeback win.  Dallas 34, St. Louis 31.

Peyton ManningFinally, it was a rematch of last year’s Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks.  This game was marketed as a redemption game for Peyton Manning and the Broncos, but Manning publicly stated that beating the Seahawks in the regular season doesn’t make up for losing a Super Bowl.  True redemption would be if there was a Super Bowl rematch between the Broncos and Seahawks and the Broncos got the victory.  But on Sunday, it was all Seahawks for most of the game, until a last second drive by Manning tied the game up and sent it to overtime.  In OT, Russell Wilson got his act together and led the Seahawks to a victory.  Seattle 26, Denver 20.
