Ravens 16, Chargers 13

With the second last-minute, come-from-behind scoring drive in two weeks, Steve McNair pulled the Ravens to their first 4-0 record ever. It's the first time they've won 4 games in a row since...

don't say it...

the 2000 Super Bowl season.

{slaps self}

Now with New England eviscerating Cincinnati 38-13 (Go Pats!), the Ravens sit alone at the top of the AFC North and finally win some respect for beating a good team.

The endgame heroics are exhilirating, but my blood pressure is ready for a walk in the park for the next game. Somehow, though, I don't think the Denver Broncos will accommodate my wishes.


Now that I don't live with my brothers anymore, your blog is the only evidence I have that football is still being played.

But I can't trust you, becuase you're a writer, and could be making all of this up.

Yes, I lie for a living. Hee.

It would be hard to write a game like this one, where the team that made more mistakes and generally looked inept somehow won the game anyway. Unclear motivations tend to alienate readers.

Some days I think everyone lies for a living, and you just get to be upfront about it.
