Late Game Updates

14 December, 2008 (14:25) | Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, Fantasy Football, Minnesota Vikings, NFL, New England Patriots, Oakland Raiders, Pittsburgh Steelers | By: Grafton

With only four games this afternoon, and one of them featuring the top two defenses in the NFL, I don’t expect a lot of action between 4 and 8pm EST.

Bernard Berrian puts the Vikings on the board with a punt return for a touchdown. As long as AP doesn’t go off, I’ll be happy.

Randy Moss and Kevin Faulk have helped Matt Cassel get off to a good start, each scoring a touchdown to give the Pats a 14-0 lead early.

Someone must’ve told the Cardinals they’re the Cardinals. Tarvaris Jackson has two touchdown passes, one to the aforementioned Berrian, and the Vikes are up 21-0.

Johnnie Lee Higgins, most famously known for sounding more like a presidential assassin than catching passes in the NFL, catches a ball thrown by Jamarcus Russel in a painted area giving his team six points. A short kick immediately thereafter gives the Raiders another point, making the score 21-7.

This is followed by what appears to be (based on ESPN Gamecast) back to back kickoff returns for touchdowns. This is pretty irrelevant fantasy-wise, but interesting if you’re a fan of kickoff returners (Little Known Fact: My AOL SN is MelGray4Lyfe!!!).

Moving on. Still pretty much nothing going on in Baltimore, just field position and field goals. I’m waiting for the inevitable safety to spice things up and tilt this one way or the other.

Jerheme Urban owners, rejoice! He has angered his purple overlords by finding the end zone. 28-7 Vikes.

The 2nd half of these games have been as boring as I’d predicted the whole things would be, so I guess I was half right. I’m going to split now for a few minutes and be back at 8 for the liveblog of the Cowboys / Giants tilt on NBC. As always, thanks for reading.
