This past week was a crazy one with the Adrian Peterson Saga, the continued fall out of the Ray Rice situation and other allegations of abuse by NFL players. We did have some good football but it seems as if everything is being overshadowed by news of NFL players getting into trouble and being alleged to have committed serious crimes.
I'm a Vikings fan and was upset with the news that Peterson was indicted on a charge of negligent injury to a child. I was shocked to read the details surrounding the charge that has been levied against the player.
I was disgusted at the way the Vikings handled the situation and their choice to reinstate Peterson. I've decided to suspend writing Vikings post-game recaps until Adrian Peterson is suspended or no longer on the team.
So you may see future recaps that contain a blank space when it comes to the Vikings.
Now let's get to the recap.
Pittsburgh Steelers 6 at Baltimore Ravens 26
Pittsburgh - It's only one game.
Baltimore - We can play this game.

Atlanta - Matt? This is what happens when you play a decent defense.
Cincinnati - Are you going to take Andy seriously now? No! Not until he wins a playoff game or two.

New Orleans - Hey coach, how about that Rob Ryan defense? I know what you’re saying Drewsy but that pick six that you threw was pretty brutal.
Cleveland Browns - We won a game! We won a game!
New England Patriots 30 at Minnesota Vikings 7
New England - That team sucks.

Seattle Seahawks 21 at San Diego Chargers 30
