San Francisco 27 – N.Y. Giants 20
Defensive end Justin Smith swatted down an Eli Manning pass to end a potential game-tying drive, as the San Francisco 49ers beat the New York Giants 27-20. Kicker David Akers had four field goals for San Francisco (8-1), which found enough offense to win despite playing most of the game without leading rusher Frank Gore, who suffered a knee injury
Early routs and late thrillers filled the NFL schedule for Week 9. Here’s a recap of all of the NFL action from Sunday:
N.Y. Giants 24 – New England 20
Eli Manning capped a game-winning, 80-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Jake Ballard with 15 seconds remaining, and the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots, 24-20
The "Madden Curse" is alive and well with Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis. His on-field performance has slipped considerably (only 211 yards rushing), and he sat out a game for what he considered a football injury (Strep throat!? Seriously Peyton!?). In addition to the public bickering about his contract, Hillis made another awful PR move when he allegedly didn't show up to a scheduled charity event for kids on Halloween.
The Green Bay Packers survived a mild scare to stay unbeaten, while the Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams remained winless thanks to two potential new stars in Denver and Dallas. Here is the recap of the week seven action in the NFL:
Denver 18 – Miami 15 (OT)
After Tim Tebow led the Broncos to 15 points in the final 2:44 of regulation to tie the game, Denver beat the Miami Dolphins 18-15 on Matt Prater’s 52-yard field goal in overtime
As the 2011 NFL season creeps closer to its halfway point, at least four teams will make starting quarterback changes in time for the games of week seven. Meanwhile, other teams may soon consider coaching changes, since eight teams have one victory or less
After vowing never to play for the Cincinnati Bengals again, former pro bowl quarterback Carson Palmer got his wish today as he was traded to the Oakland Raiders hours before the NFL trade deadline. Bengals owner Mike Brown finally caved in the 11th hour, sending Palmer to the Raiders for a 2012 first round draft pick, and a conditional first rounder in 2013.
Two head coaches fought, while another was injured during a game, as week six of the 2011 NFL season left just the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers as the lone unbeaten team in the league.
