Today's Sports Beat is back after a long layover. I will deliver my thoughts on the NFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB. Thanks for coming back and checking in and look for a podcast to match up with our site!
The Not So Good.....the Patriots. What happened to covering the spread of (-26 ) for all those that took that foolish action. This was a close one and one that no one saw coming, like this helicopter tackle of Kevin Faulk. Pats escape with a win31-28 and still undefeated at 11-0. The Pats are at Baltimore for MNF on 12/3.
The VERY ugly...The St. Louis Rams. The Seahawks got away with one on 4th down and a chance for the Rams to win the game. No go...fumbled snap and game over Seahawks 24-19 over the pathetic Rams.

The action on Sunday, I had the chance to watch Adrian Peterson for the Vikings set an all time rushing record with 296 yards. I will say that if you haven't seen him play, check him out cause has some of the same DNA as Emmitt Smith and Barry Sanders. He was impressive.
As far as the match up of the undefeated Colts and Patriots, it looked like the Colts were going to own the Pats on this given Sunday. The Colts were sharp on defense and also in the running game which was controlled by Joseph Addai with 26 rush,'s for 112 yds and 5 Rec, 114 yds, and 1 TD. It was a well played game by Addai on Sunday. As far as the Pat's go, Brady threw for 255 yards and spread the touchdowns around to Randy Moss, Wes Welker, and Kevin Faulk.
I am sure that we'll see them both in the playoffs where everyone will be able to say that these two are the teams that are in the Super Bowl. Calling this Super Bowl ....and a 1/2 was stupid. It was a gridiron battle between the two best undefeated teams in the NFL.
Patriots 24 (9-0)
Indianapolis 20 (7-1)
The Patriots have a bye this week and the Colts will meet the Charger's (4-4) in San Diego on Sunday.
