What a crazy day of NFL action. Three games from the 1:00 p.m.slate went into overtime. Chiefs running-back Jamaal Charles ran for 233 yards to drop the Saints to 0-3 after everyone had them locked-in for at-least a playoff berth. The Lions rallied to tie their game with the Titans after trailing by 14 with 58 seconds left in the game, but fell in overtime. The Steelers just lost on a game-ending field goal to the Raiders of all teams and are now 1-2. All this occurred while the Bengals did everything in their power to make sure their game never lost interest, nearly blowing multiple double-digit leads. But when the dust settled, The Bengals ended Sunday at 2-1, tied for the division lead in the AFC North with the Jaguars, Dolphins, and Browns coming up. Andy Dalton had another epic performance, and has now in the past two games gone 43/58(74%) for 636 yards, 6 touchdowns, and just 2 interceptions. A.J. Green had a career day, snagging 9 passes for 183 and 1 score, while Andrew Hawkins continues to be a revelations, accounting for 82 total yards and what wound up being the game-winning 59-yard TD late in the 4th-quarter. So I ask one favor of you Who Dey nation…

Rejoice! Enjoy this moment right now, because over the past two decades, there haven’t been enough good times like this to enjoy. Don’t spend it wishing the team would bench Terrence Newman for his bone-headed penalty, or wishing the team would cut Maualuga because he can’t play linebacker in the NFL. Enjoy the moment for the good things that are in it.
