Posted: October 12, 2011 in Uncategorized

Week 5 done and over and the NFL had  a tragedy over the weeked.  Oakland Raiders owner, Al Davis, passed away at the age of 82.  The cause of the death is unknown.  Al Davis was an iconic figure in the NFL and famous for his saying “Just win, baby.”  And the Raiders just did that in a 25-20 win against the Houston Texans.

The Eagles go out and show how this “dream team” is more of a nightmare.  The Eagles are now 1-4 and lost to the Bills on Sunday 31-24.  The Bills continue to impress as the Eagles regress.  The Bills are tied for the division with New England for first with a 4-1 record.

The 49ers continue to impress with a 4-1 record.  They sit at the top of their division and just beat Tampa Bay 48-3!  Kicker David Akers, scored 12 of their 48 points and quarterback, Alex Smith, threw three touchdowns.

Week 5 was filled with a decent amout of surprises.  The Lions continue to be the surprise team of the season with a victory over the Bears mmonday night, they improved to 5-0.  The Eagles are still a nightmare.  And surprisingly I won my first fantasy game of the season by .08.  That is clutch right there.

    Lions what a surprise this year. I think the NFC Central is going to be the division to watch.
