Dreams Die Hard In the NFL

Dreams die hard. And the end of the Baltimore/Minnesota game was proof of that.

This game saw five touchdowns in the last 2:07 of the game.  Joe Flacco capped off a touchdown drive at that 2:07 mark with a touchdown pass to Dennis Pitta to take a 15-12 lead.

But with their playoff hopes hanging in the balance, the Ravens defense surrendered a two-play 68 yard touchdown drive, highlighted by Toby Gerhart’s 41 yard touchdown run.  The Ravens had the answer.  Jacoby Jones returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown.  Ravens 22 Vikings 19 for those keeping score at home.

But it wasn’t done yet.

Matt Cassell threw a 79 yard touchdown pass to Cordarrelle Patterson to give Minnesota the lead once more with just :31 left.  Were the Ravens’ playoff hopes over?  Hell no.  With :09 left rookie Marlon Brown hauled in a 9 yard touchdown pass from Flacco and miraculously kept his feet in bounds.  What a finish!

Manning and Brady continue to deliver the goods

There are lots of years where the Super Bowl winds up being a bust.  Or where a highly anticipated showdown between two good teams turns into a blowout.

But Manning v. Brady?  Sure seems like every time these two meet up, they deliver the goods.

It didn’t look that way in the first half, of course, as Denver jumped out to a 24-0 lead.  But the Patriots scored 31 unanswered points to start the second half.

That alone would have made for a remarkable game, but just to make it interesting, Manning tossed his second touchdown with 3 minutes left to send the game into overtime, before the Patriots finally sealed the deal in the extra period.  Never a dull moment.
