NFL Scores, Week 10: Rounding Up The NFC West

Ten weeks in and the NFC West picture still isn’t clear. A look at the standings reveals a murky mess, with all four teams withing two games of each other. The Seattle Seahawks took the lead, if only temporarily, with a win over the Arizona Cardinals coupled with the St. Louis Rams’ overtime loss to San Fransisco. And thus, we have a division where an 8-8 team may just walk out of the fiery carnage with a playoff berth. Bless the NFC West.

The Seahawks used a strong performance by quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, working with one partially functioning appendage, to down the Cardinals. After cracking his left wrist during a first half quarterback sneak — it failed, by the way — Hasselbeck roared back onto the scene with a heavily taped wrist to secure the victory. On the day, he threw for 333 yards and a touchdown in Seattle’s 36-18 win.

There was plenty of drama in San Fransisco as the 49ers needed overtime to down the Rams. Troy Smith was an absolute revelation, throwing for 356 yards and a touchdown. For his efforts, he was rewarded with a win and another week at the helm for the Niners. The Rams fell out of first place with the loss, though Sam Bradford had another strong game in a superb rookie campaign.

After 10 weeks, the Seahawks lead the Rams by a game, with the 49ers and Cardinals lurking, just two games out of first place. Your NFC West motto for the year: “A .500 record will do it.”


NFL Scores, Week 10: San Fransisco 49ers Come Up Big In OT To Beat Rams, 20-17

A 29-yard Joe Nedney field goal in overtime vaulted the San Fransisco 49ers back into the NFC West picture as they defeated the St. Louis Rams, 20-17. The Niners took the lead late in the fourth quarter after seeing three touchdowns called back due to penalties throughout the day. Troy Smith hit Michael Crabtree for the go-ahead score late, only to see the score tied with a last second Josh Brown field goal.

After forcing the Rams to punt in overtime, Frank Gore took over, carrying the Niners down the field and setting up Nedney’s game winner. A controversial pass interference call put the Niners into field goal range and Gore made it nothing more than a chip-shot. It was San Fransisco’s second-straight win, putting them back into the race in a wide-open NFC West.

Smith, starting for the inactive Alex Smith, threw for 356 yards and a touchdown on the day, creating a quarterback controversy in San Fransisco. Frank Gore added 87 yards and a score on the ground, picking up crucial yards late. Delanie Walker led all receivers with 80 yards and Vernon Davis added 79.

Sam Bradford dropped back 42 times on the day, completing 30 passes for 251 yards and a touchdown. Steven Jackson rushed for 81 yards and a score. Brandon Gibson led the Rams’ receivers with 72 yards in the air and Danny Amendola added a touchdown.

The Rams fall to 4-5 on the season, one game out of first place. The Niners improved to 3-6, just two games out after a slow start. St. Louis hosts the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday while San Fransisco hosts the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


NFL Scores, Week 11: Seattle Seahawks Use Strong Second Half To Drop Cardinals, 36-18

The Seattle Seahawks finally stapped a streak of dismal games, dropping the Arizona Cardinals on the road, 36-18. The Seahawks were completely inept in the red zone and in short-yardage situations, but still managed to survive and hang-on for the win. Olindo Mare kicked five field goals in the win, the second time he’s accomplished that feat against the Cardinals. Up a touchdown at the half, the Seahawks poured it on, forcing turnovers to secure a short field in the second half.

Matt Hasselbeck had a banner day returning from a concussion, throwing for 333 yards and a touchdown. Justing Forsett rushed for 64 yards and a late touchdown to seal the game. Marshawn Lynch also added a touchdown in the run game. Mike Williams, just days after suffering a compound finger dislocation, caught 11 passes for 145 yards. Deon Butler added a 63 yard touchdown in the first half.

Derek Anderson did all he could for the Cardinals, but still came up short. Anderson threw for 322 yards, one touchdown and an interception. Steve Breaston caught four passes for 98 yards and Larry Fitzgerald added 91 yards receiving. Tim Hightower also ran for a touchdown.

The Seahawks take over first place in the NFC West with the win, improving 5-4 on the year. The Cardinals fell to 3-6. Seattle heads to New Orleans to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Saints next week while the Cardinals take-on the Kansas City Chiefs.
