Pro Sports Recap Week 2

Written by Ryan Forbes

NFL Weekend Recap: The biggest event that happened in week two is Peyton Manning joining the 70,000 yards club. Brett Favre is the only other member of the club who is 1,700 yards ahead of Manning, and people are speculating whether or not Manning become the all-time leader in passing.

The Chiefs/Broncos game was a thriller and came down to a Jamaal Charles fumble with 27 seconds left, which was recovered by the Broncos and returned for a touchdown to decide the game. Manning has to thank his Receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas for the majority of his yards they combined for over 200 yards and two touchdowns. The final score of the game was 31-24. Sunday was the first time in history that Buccaneers, Jaguars, Browns, Redskins, and Raiders won on the same day, and some of those game were incredible. The Raiders overcame the Ravens with a last minute drive by Derek Carr. The Jaguars upset the Dolphins 23-20 and Allen Robinson who had 155 yards and two touchdowns. Although the Cowboys beat the Eagles in a NFC rivalry, they had the bigger loss, losing star quarterback Tony Romo because of a broken clavicle. That sums up week two of the NFL this has been a great start to the season.

MLB Weekend Recap: David Ortiz has now joined the 500 club by hitting his 500th career homerun. He joins only 26 MLB other players in history. Despite this, the Red Sox have not have a season worth remembering. In other news the Cubs are having a great season with winning two games against the Cardinals, and they are playing catch up in the National League Central Division, with one win over the Cubs. In the west, it might come down to the final game; Texas has a 90% chance of making the playoffs and Houston has an 85% of making it and the Angels have almost no chance now with only a 11% chance. The playoff hunt is almost over with only two weeks left what teams will make playoffs.

College Football Weekend Recap: The biggest story of the weekend is the upset of Alabama against Ole Miss, where Quarterback Chad Kelly threw for 341 yards and three touchdowns, where Alabama’s team broke down against Ole Miss for a second year in a row. This is the first time this has happened in the history of the school. They are definitely missing A.J. McCarron, their star quarterback who led them to three BCS championships. Another huge upset was #41 Stanford upsetting number #6 USC 41-31. Quarterback Kevin Hogan threw for 279 yards and two touchdowns leading Stanford to shock, USC and all of college football fans. #10 UCLA beat #19 BYU 24-23 in a close game that came down to the wire BYU was close to upsetting another Southern California team.

The top five rankings for the week are: #5 Baylor, #4 TCU, #3 Ole Miss #2, Michigan State and #1 Ohio State. That was one good week in College Football we hope to see more in week four.
