Hangover Sports Roundup: Cowboys, Patriots, Lobo Football

NFL

America's game made its yearly debut yesterday and as usual delivered great drama and compelling action. Despite penalties and the lack of scoring, the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins had the intensity of a playoff game. Even though Tony Romo outplayed new Redskins QB Donovan McNabb, Romo was unable to score touchdowns. However the Cowboys had a chance to win the game on the final play, but a holding penalty cost “America's Team” the season opener.

If the Cowboys want to be a playoff team they will have to fix basic mistakes they should have corrected in training camp. Meanwhile McNabb showed the world he can take the Redskins to a division championship.

The New England Patriots looked like a Super Bowl contender against the Cincinnati Bengals. Tom Brady threw for three touchdowns with star receiver Wes Welker catching two of them. So after a dominating victory, why is Patriot receiver Randy Moss angry? After watching Brady receive a new contract, Moss made his feelings known during the 15 minute press conference, stating his team is disrespecting him by not giving him a new contract. Time will tell if Moss's crying will become a distraction for a Patriots team that has to play their best football each week to win.

Every football fan thought Eagles quarterback Michael Vick’s days as a starter was a faded memory. But when Eagles starter Kevin Kolb went down with an concussion, the Michael Vick experience was back open for business. Despite losing to the Packers 27-20, Vick showed he still had the ability to become a starter in the league. Even if Kolb returns, Eagles coach Andy Reid was impressed with Vick's performance and may decide to keep Vick as the starter.

Lobo Football

UNM Fans were looking to erase the memory of the embarrassing 72-0 beatdown given by from the Oregon Ducks. The Lobos made some positive strides with an improved passing and running game against Texas Tech. But the Lobos never gave themselves an opportunity to win because of fundamental mistakes and foolish false start penalties. They lost 52-17 and now are in a must-win situation against Utah next week.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders have a new coach and remain outside the Top 25, but they are considered a power team from the Big 12. For the Lobos to be so unprepared and undisciplined is a massive concern. Lobo Head Coach Mike Locksley needs to repair the mistakes from the past couple of weeks against Utah or else he could be looking new job on Monster.com.
