NFL: Unexpected Performances Week 6

Posted: October 20, 2011 in Uncategorized

Week 6 is done and there weren’t that much unexpected performances in week 6.  BUT there was one unexpected trade.

The most unexpected thing to happen was the Oakland Raiders trading their 2012 first round and 2013 second round pick to the Bengals to get Carson Palmer.  For those who don’t know, Carson Palmer stated earlier in the year he would not take another snap for the Bengals and would retire if he was not traded.  Bengals owner, Mike Brown, said he wasn’t going to “reward”Palmer and that he had signed a contract and made a commitment by signing it, and trading him would show Palmer wasn’t committed to the Bengals.

The Raiders pulled off their first home win since the passing of Al Davis.  They defeated the Cleveland Browns 24-7.  The Browns broke Raiders’ QB Jason Campbell’s right collarbone and will miss almost the rest of the season hence the raiders going for Carson Palmer.  Shane Lechler for Oakland threw a touchdown after being the holder for kicker Janikowski on a fake field goal.

The Eagles bounced back against the Redskins after losing four games in a row.  Rex Grossman threw 4 interceptions and was benched in favor of John Beck for the rest of the game.

 The Jets also snapped their losing by defeating the Dolphin 24-6.  Cornerback Darrelle Revis had an interception for a 100 yard touchdown which can be viewed here.  People have said Revis had a little bit of pass interference but if you ask me Marshall was trying to run him over, running through his  route, and falling over leaving Revis wide for the pick six.

Week 6 is over and the Lions lost their first game to the 49ers.  Both teams are 5-1 for the season which surprises most people.  The Bengals are 4-2 with rookie Andy  Dalton at QB after defeating the winless/Peyton Manning-less Colts.

    We will see how Palmer responds not playing till now. I’m sure was no loafing around, but new organization and team this may take many adjustments.
