@ispykatie Week 13 Recap
—————————————-Damn does it feel good to beat Cincinnati. I mean yes, they suck. But it’s always fun to run train on the only other NFL team in Ohio. Lemme quick give a shoutout to Ohio State’s very own Denzel Ward, who had a stellar rookie season until he forgot how to tackle and got a pretty serious concussion. He’s looked ok this season, but this game was otherworldly. This was the guy we drafted 4th overall and he looked every bit like the secondary stud we always knew he could be. Confession- I have two favorite types of TDs. Big man touchdowns, which is basically someone on the O Line or a massive defensive tackle who runs it to the endzone with all the force of an oncoming freight train and immediately needs oxygen after, and then the supple interception. The kind of pick that when you were a kid felt SO FREAKING COOL because after it was like, “yeah, you saw that. I’ve got skills.” The kind of pick that gets people on their feet, that you see on the SC Top 10 plays, the kind of pick that can change the game. Denzel Ward’s interception and TD return felt like that on Sunday and I want to bottle up that badass joy and take it with me everywhere.
Offensively, our run game was on it, which helped because Baker played like a high school DIII QB. I mean, decent start, and a couple of 3rd down conversions, but Baker didn’t Bake. He didn’t even have the heat to make a cup of Ramen. Maybe his hand still hurt, maybe we got a couple of crappy calls (Njoku caught that ball and it was NOT an INT. I will die on that hill). But our O Line allowed ONE SACK. Let’s all agree, best game of the season for them. S/O big guys- you did it! That meant he was protected, which meant he should’ve done better.
Overall, it was a solid team win against a team we 100% were supposed to beat. Now, a few ~dramatic~ things happened that had nothing to do with the game (Belichick filming- weird- and Odell comments that may or may not be true) but this isn’t the Real Housewives of the NFL. So I really don’t care. I care about what happens on the field and what happened on Sunday was a win, and that is all that matters.
