That is the pits. :lol:

Especially when Miami lost 19-14 against the league's worst defense against the run, but then, Miami can't run the ball. In fact, the Dolphins got only 184 total yards and are in the bottom third in scoring. Buffalo had to settle for five field goals, since they couldn't finish off drives last night.

Key breakdowns in the secondary and failure to capitalize on opportunities in the red zone proved to be costly in a 24-20 loss to Green Bay. Detroit was forced to settle for field goals twice after driving inside the Green Bay 10 yard line. The second time wasted a chance to extend a 17-14 lead to eleven points. Randall Cobb would beat the Lions' secondary with 1:55 left to score the go ahead score. With four losses in the NFC North Division, the Lions' chances are all but doomed.

Failure to take advantage of scoring opportunities in the fourth quarter, failure to make critical stops, and questionable strategy sends Detroit to a 34-31 overtime loss. After the Lions had taken a 31-24 lead, third down sacks on consecutive possessions took them out of field goal range. After Detroit had pinned Houston on its three yard line, the Lions failed to contain the Texans on third down for a three and out series. Instead, Houston would move down the field, making third down conversions before scoring with a 1:55 left. Detroit, for some strange reason, abandoned the running game which put Houston on its heels. Both teams would miss field goals in overtime before Houston connected for the gamewinner.

Dallas gets taken apart in the first half by a rookie before Washington plays very loose in the fourth quarter to allow the Cowboys back in the game. The Redskins led 28-3 at halftime before Dallas would score 25 points to make the game a little more respectable. Washington would win 38-31. Dallas, meanwhile, lacks a quality offensive front line and a running attack.

Eight turnovers by Pittsburgh, 3 interceptions and 5 lost fumbles, give Cleveland a 20-14 win over the Steelers in what turned out to be Mike Holmgren's last game as team president. Four of the turnovers occured in the fourth quarter if I'm correct. The Steelers also added nine penalties for 68 yards. The Browns own inability to finish drives and ten penalties of their own for 90 yards kept the Steelers in the game.

Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been fine $30,000 by the NFL for his ninja kick to the groin of Houston quarterback Matt Schaub Thanksgiving Day. Suh says it wasn't intentional and obviously the NFL agreed, but some might contend that it would be the equivalent of saying Roberto Duran's crashing right hand was an affectionate love tap.
