NFL Week 11

By Brett Minnick
Following a week filled with blowout wins for hot teams, week 11 looks to have a few more upsets in it.  Last week, the Patriots blew out the Broncos; but look for the Raiders to make a statement and possibly live up to the preseason hype against one of the top teams of the NFL. The Chargers and Bills face off this week as the Bills come off a blowout loss against the Saints. The Chargers are coming off a slim loss to the Jags and will have to streak for a chance in the playoffs. The Bills are benching Tyrod Taylor this week after a lackluster offensive attack last week. Nathan Peterman, a rookie from Pitt, will start in his stead and try to win a starting job. The Rams crushed the Texans last week but will face one of the NFL’s top defenses in the Minnesota Vikings.  The Vikings offense has looked good throughout the year behind should be backup turned starter Case Keenum.  If the Rams can overcome the Everson Griffen lead Vikings D, they should be able to come out on top.  Lastly, the Falcons and Seahawks matchup in primetime Monday Night Football.  This battle of the NFC powerhouses will be pivotal for if they can secure a wild card spot.

NFL Week 9

By: Brett Minnick

 

One of the best games of the 2017 season and certainly the best of the week was the week 8 shootout between young gun Deshaun Watson and electrifying Russell Wilson.  The Texans and Seahawks have typically been known for their defense in years, but the 41-38 final score speaks otherwise.  Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson both showed elite passing ability, escapability in the pocket, and poise when faced with clutch situations, such as Russell Wilson hitting Jimmy Graham for the go ahead touchdown.

Salisbury Football Week 5

By Colten Hagadus

The Salisbury Falcon football team is 2-2 on the season with wins coming against Catasauqua and Northwestern Lehigh. Learning a new offense, the Falcons were expected to experience a learning curve. However, the Falcons have already matched their win total from last year as head coach Andy Cerco seems encouraged by their play so far. Their losses came against Wilson and Bangor as they were competitive in both games, but just couldn’t pull it off in the end. This week, the Falcons take on powerhouse Notre Dame Green Pond, who ended up winning the league last year. I caught up with Junior lineman Daniel Jennings and asked him how practice went this week and he replied with, “We came in every day and worked hard, practice was crisp, and any mistakes we had were corrected.”

NFL Week 7

By Brett Minnick

 

Week 6 showed some surprising outcomes and scores once again proving the NFL is unpredictable as ever.  We saw the final undefeated team fall to a Steelers team that had looked absolutely terrible the previous week.  The Chiefs never got it going and the Le’veon Bell lead Steelers abused the ground game pounding the Chiefs into submission.  Only one winless team remains after the Giants thoroughly upset the Broncos in Denver.  The Browns are lost to rookie stud Deshaun Watson and the Texans and don’t look to be getting a win this week going up against an explosive Titans team.
