Busy, busy, but I'd like to post about sports to keep my mind off some other things for a minute.
With MLB over, NBA just starting, and college football in a bit of doldrums the last few weeks, NFL is the sport to watch right now. Some teams lost in the NCAA but I'll get to that next week since I would like to discuss the rankings at some point.
So the NFL now has four undefeated teams remaining and one of them is the Bengal, which I am immensely pleased about. They beat the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday and pretty much sealed their division unless something drastic happens. The New England Patriots won on Thursday against the Miami Dolphins and the Denver Broncos gave the Green Bay Packers their first loss on Sunday night. The only undefeated team in the NFC are the Carolina Panthers who beat the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night in overtime.
As of now, the Colts with a losing record tie the Texans in the AFC South, easily the worse division. The Raiders and Jets would be the wild card currently but it's too soon to tell all of that. It will be an interesting second half.
In the NFC, the Falcons are still in it though they have done terribly recently. Hopefully this isn't a sign of how they will play if they do get into the playoffs. The NFC East will be a contest but the Giants look like the best team. The Cardinals should take the west but I've also been impressed with the Vikings though I haven't seen them play.
Looking ahead, I get to watch the Bengals on Thursday against their division rival the Browns. The Packers vs. Panthers matchup should be cool to see too. Still eight weeks left.
