Sunday dragging on

Buffalo Wild Wings is still buzzing, but it became a tomb shortly after 2 p.m. when the Titans asserted their will over the Chiefs. Final score: Tennessee 26, Kansas City 10. And the Chiefs could very well be staring down the barrel of 0-5 heading into their bye week.

There were two overtime games, Buffalo over Chicago 23-20 and Atlanta over New Orleans 37-34, but there were also a few stinkers. I was surprised the Patriots laid a gigantic egg in Miami and got hammered. This is the first time New England has lost its season opener since 2003, and the first time in an even longer time it has been all alone in last place in the AFC East. The Jets also won, ousting the Raiders.

The Cowboys are horrendous, trailing the 49ers at home at halftime 28-3. The Panthers-Buccaneers game isn’t much better. Carolina is leading 10-0 despite Cam Newton sitting on the bench in street clothes. Even worse, these are the only games on, since CBS is showing the U.S. Open women’s singles final, slobbering all over the microphones to worship Serena Williams.

Lisa Toebben headed home a couple of minutes ago. Good. She needs to rest. Her back is hurting. I hope she gets to feeling better soon.

I’m not going to stick around too late tonight. I have work that needs to be done, but at least I’ve written the Osborne-Thunder Ridge football game. I just need a few photos for both sides to go with the stories. I may be able to write my column from here if I get in the mood.

About David

I am a sportswriter for a group of weekly newspapers in small towns across northern Kansas. I grew up in New Orleans, went to college at LSU and wandered in the wilderness until Hurricane Katrina finally put me on the path to my current job.
