Cowboys Beat Panthers in Final Seconds

Well the Panthers missed a golden opportunity to secure a playoff spot and the Cowboys took it away. Jake Delhomme had a good game of finding his receivers and making few mistakes. We forced a fumble on a kick off and recovered the ball in a bold combination of moves by Jermaine Hardy and Sean Tufts that resulted in a touchdown. None of it was enough as the Dallas team quickly answered with an explosive drive ending in a rushing touchdown by Julius Jones. After our comeback the Cowboys pulled out another last minute win by scoring a touchdown with 24 seconds to go. Atlanta is going to be even tougher to beat so the Panthers had better be prepared.

Nail Biting End of Season Run

Well we clinched first place with grace and style on Sunday. Our game against the New Orleans Saints in Baton Rouge was near perfect. We allowed only10 points and scored 27. The Saints were a strong opponent yet pose little threat compared to the Dallas Cowboys whom we meet on Saturday. They lost their game against the top rated Redskins so hopefully we can capitalize on defense like the Redskins did and foil the Cowboys passing game. We need to be worried because the Cowboys have been pretty lucky this season and have pulled out some fourth quarter miracles

Bucs’ Shadow Falls on Panthers

The Carolina Panthers lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 10-20 on Sunday. The Bucs converted on third down way more than the Panthers and the Bucs held on to the ball for four more minutes than the Panthers. Overall they were the better team and the dominant force for the entirety of the game. The Buccaneers rushing game way overshadowed ours 114-82. This came as the shocking end to our five game winning streak and the Panthers poor performance really disappointed many fans. Tampa had a lot riding on this game, more than we did, and they were fired up because of it.

Foster, Delhomme and the Panthers Defense

The Carolina Panthers 24-6 win over the Atlanta Falcons was a joy to watch. DeShaun Foster was responsible for 180 yards of total offense and out of that, scored a pair of touchdowns and rushed for 131 yards. Our defense was effective against the run and that’s saying something because the Falcons are considered the NFL’s number one rushing squad. Jake Delhomme was on his game throwing two touchdowns and plenty of passes to Steve Smith, who racked up 65 yards and a touchdown. The defense however deserves the award. They sacked Michael Vick five times and picked off two interceptions holding him to 18 completions for the game.
