The Football Chick

My little tumblr universe is 90% about sports (mostly football), 9% about cars and fashion, and 1% random stuff. I like a lot of teams and players, but I'm partial to the Redskins who I let break my heart every year. Oh yeah, I can be completely silly too. My other blogs are:, and

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray by himself has more rushing yards this season (913) than EVERY NFL team  except for: NYJ (920), BAL (920) and SEA (945).


Excuse me, trying to get a touchdown here!

After his team beat the Atlanta Falcons 29-7 yesterday, Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith, who had been flagged for a personal foul during the game, called the NFC South “a finesse division.” He went on to say that the AFC North is a physical, downhill, blue-collar football” division.

The NFC South is the only division without a five-win team. The Panthers are currently in first place at 3-3. So far this season, the Ravens have outplayed the Panthers, Buccaneers and Falcons by a combined score of 115-34. Ravens will play the New Orleans Saints in Week 12.

That was exciting!

It was not even close as the Cincinnati Bengals put up a doughnut, losing to the Indianapolis Colts 27-0 in their Week 7 matchup today. If you are a Bengals fans, the offensive stats for this game will probably make you weep.  Hopefully with the return of WR A.J. Green, the Bengals can jumpstart the offense that started the season 3-0.

2014 Week 7 Matchup — New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys

Hopefully, the Cowboys gameplan will not be affected by this week’s mini shoplifting scandal involving RB Joseph Randle. To their advantage, they are playing at home and coming off a gratifying Week 6 victory against the Super Bowl Champ Seahawks. Add to that, RB DeMarco Murray is having a record year, having posted 100+ yards in each of the first six games this season.

The Giants lost a key offensive weapon when WR Victor Cruz went down in Week 6 with a  torn right patellar tendon. And after several impressive wins in preceding weeks, the Giants looked woeful against the division leading Eagles in that game, losing 27-0. However, the Giants have shown resilience in the past and will need to find it as they face a crucial game against a division rival. [Sunday, Oct. 19, 4:25pm ET, FOX]

2014 Week 7 Matchup — Carolina Panthers @ Green Bay Packers

The Panthers offense got a much-needed boost last week when QB Cam Newton seemed back to his old self, rushing for 107 yards and a TD. Packers are rolling with a 3-game winning streak and QB Aaron Rodgers is clicking on all cylinders with WRs Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson. But their run game is stalled and one can legitimately ask whether the opposing QB will have more rushing yards than the Packs leading RB Eddie Lacy. [Sunday, Oct. 19, 1:00pm ET, FOX]

2014 Week 7 Matchup - Cincinnati Bengals @ Indianapolis Colts

If momentum can be factored into a matchup, the Colts would certainly have the edge. They are on a 4-game winning streak led by the league’s leading passer QB Andrew Luck with 1,987 yards through 6 games. The Bengals last two games was a loss and a tie and they will be without leading receiver A.J. Green. Momentum favors the Colts, but this should still be a close matchup and may even give Bengals K Mike Nugent a chance to redeem himself.

2014 Week 7 matchup — New Orleans Saints @ Detroit Lions

The 2-3 Saints have gotten off to a rocky start, but are coming off a bye and hoping to re-energize their season. The Lions are 4-2 and have the league’s No. 1 defense, but have struggled offensively. And both teams may be without their respective star players: Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) will be a game-time decision, while Lions WR Calvin Johnson’s (ankle) status is listed as questionable.
