When your bad, you’re terrible. Even with Roddy White back in the lineup, who contributed in a big way with an astounding catch for 20 yards (see sarcasm), the Falcons looked horrid, and only managed to churn 226 total yards of offense. Steven Jackson is probably the bust or dud of the year. Worst Free Agent Pickup. Ever. Look at the bright side Falcons fans, your $104M quarterback didn’t throw an interception this time.
So, Case Keenum is apparently the real deal, as he had another respectable game, which likely means ‘Exit, Stage Right’ for Matt Schaub. They had a chance, but failed to score on their final drive. The Texans lost their 7th straight game after starting the season 2-0, and as of now, they’re the 4th pick in the 2014 Draft. Yikes. If the Jaguars end up finishing better than the Texans by the end of the season, I think I’ll shave my head. Oh, how bout them releasing Ed Reed? Fail.
