In perhaps the most surprising game on the Week 11 docket, the St. Louis Rams led by quarterback journeyman Shaun Hill, defeated the Denver Broncos in convincing fashion. With a final score of 22-7, the Rams move to a 4-6 record while the Broncos fall to 7-3.
The Rams had already quietly beaten the past NFC champs Seahawks and 49ers, and blown a big lead at home against the Cowboys. Still, no one gave St. Louis a shot at this game and the way Denver played, they didn’t prepare for a tough matchup either.
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was 34 for 54 for 389 yards with two interceptions and was held to one touchdown pass, a 42-yard strike to Emmanuel Sanders. The Rams defense proved to be too much for Manning and company on Sunday and they held the Broncos several times on fourth down deep in Ram territory, preventing a Manning comeback.
The loss also included some critical injuries for the Broncos moving forward. Tight end Julius Thomas was sidelined in the first quarter with an ankle injury and will miss playing time. Stellar wideout Emmanuel Sanders is undergoing concussion protocol after being drilled by Rodney McLeod on a deep sideline throw and running back Montee Ball aggravated a groin injury that had kept him off the field for the five previous games.
This no-name St. Louis team is exciting and people should want to buy Rams tickets to head out and see how the rest of the season pans out. The NFC West is up for grabs and why not the Rams? As far as Denver is concerned, they are now looking at home field advantage for the playoffs in the rearview mirror and need to prepare to play on the road if the Super Bowl is in the cards for them.
In celebration of their Somewhere Under Wonderland album, the group has decided to embark on none other than a world tour! Counting Crows tickets will be available in Europe, the United States, and Australia! The tour begins on November 1st in Europe and ends on April 2nd in Australia, hitting up nine locations in the United States, 25 locations in all. Released on September 2, 2014 Somewhere Under Wonderland is now the seventh studio album by the famous American rock band and is considered a special one as the album is the band’s first release of original material since 2008′s Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings. Additionally, this is their first release from Capitol Records after parting with their original label, Geffen Records, of 18 years. Don’t worry about a huge change in sound, longtime fans, as Rolling Stone puts it, “Adam Duritz is still the same dreadlocked dreamer you remember from the Nineties” and Uncut insists that “they sound refreshed again here, even if their classy, Music From Big Pink-inspired roots-rock has changed little from the default settings established by their brilliant debut August And Everything After 20 years ago.” Fans are also claiming that their album “contains no filler” tracks and that they are “reestablishing themselves while staying true to their original sound”. So, there you have it; it sounds like this will be one tour you don’t want to miss!

They are second in their AFC West division right now with 5-2-0. The only real competition they have in their division would be the Denver Broncos. That is a very serious competitor but the Chargers also have something this season and that is a head coach McCoy that believes in them and is willing to put in the time to prove his team is to be taken very seriously. They were just knocked off their 5 win streak by Kansas City Chiefs. 23-20 where they played at home in the Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego, CA.
Head Coach Mike McCoy has only been with the Chargers, this makes his second season. After replacing Norv Turner after 2012. San Diego still did not compete in the playoffs in 2013 however, the team did score the AFC’s final wild-card spot and won a postseason game. All of this did was fan the flame for the Chargers fans next year. Mike cares about each individual player on his team and it shows for example, QB Plilip Rivers was thought to be on his way out of San Diego. Under McCoy and the rest of his team, the 32 yr old has done a complete 180. Rivers has thrown 47 TDs and just 11 interceptions. Now at six weeks he is a MVP frontrunner.
If we just look at numbers they are a 2-2 team that has a .500 record or better. This makes them a 3-0 against teams who are below .500. The problem now comes in because seven of the last nine games are teams who are above .500. So while the Chargers are having a stellar beginning season. Keep in mind this is only the start. The teams just get more challenging as the year continues.
One reason some of the analysts are saying that San Diego may have to put off the Super Bowl for another season is, the team is missing its two starting RBs, its starting center, a starting ILB and OLB and has not had a healthy secondary in over a month. So word is while the Chargers are having an awesome beginning season and they may very well pull off a Wild Card win. But Super Bowl though? We will have to wait to see how the season plays out.
Wondering who holds the coveted spot for the halftime performance at Super Bowl XLIX? This year it will be none other than Katy Perry! The game will be played on Sunday Feb. 1 in Glendale, Arizona at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Most have heard by now that the NFL was strongly considering artists to pay to perform at all of the following games as it undoubtedly draws in massive ratings. For last season’s Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos, a record 111.5 million viewers tuned in for Bruno Mars’ performance at the half. This year should be no different; the half time show is always a much speculated event, for some, even more entertaining than the football game itself. No one could forget the infamous Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show controversy of the nip slip when Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake performed. Who would want to risk missing something like that again? Or, more realistically, who would want to miss the elaborate stages and intricate, well planned acts that are always promised and delivered at all Super Bowl Half times? Not many, even the haters tune in with their phones in hand, ready to call up and complain at the slightest slip up! This is exactly why the NFL is eager to start a trend of paying performers. The Wall Street Journal also reported in August that organizers reached out to Perry, Rihanna and Coldplay to see if they were interested in playing the half time performance. There is no word on why Perry was chosen but it doesn’t sound like it was because she was willing to fork over the dough. In an appearance on ESPN’s “College GameDay” on October 4th, the songstress insisted that she’s “not the kind of girl to pay to play the Super Bowl.” Well, that sure shuts down those rumors. In regards to what she’s planning to do for her performance, only time will tell; you will just have to tune in to the world’s biggest football game to find out!
Super Bowl XLIX performer Katy Perry
Sunday Feb. 1
Glendale, Arizona at the University of Phoenix Stadium
In their 41-20 Sunday win over the previously unbeaten Arizona Cardinals, the Mile High Broncos looked at times like titans of the gridiron and others as mere mortals. Obviously, in winning by 21 points, the Broncos had more positives than negatives, however there were a couple of head scratching plays from the Denver squad. What notes can be taken from this game, and what can fans expect from the Broncos moving forward?
On the offensive side of the football, Peyton’s first drive against the Cardinals vaunted corner-backs looked predictably efficient. No. 18 simply took what the Cardinals gave him on that drive culminating in Peyton once again reaching the record books becoming the second person in history to throw 500 touchdown passes. At times Manning looked like a mortal throwing 2 Interceptions in the strong wind, but then reminded everyone how impressive he is throwing for 479 yards and 4 TDs. With Manning performing like he is Broncos Tickets are in demand. Demaryius Thomas abused the Cardinals defense having a career day hauling in eight passes for 226 yards and 2 touchdowns. Whatever doubts fans might have had regarding his early season form, Thomas silenced his doubters looking as strong as ever. Thomas, going up against Cardinals Probowl CB Cromartie, was consistently targeted by Manning and made Cromartie look out of his depth. To start off the day the Broncos running game did not do much to relieve pressure off of Manning. Ronnie Hillman showed some signs of life coming into the game for the injured Montee Ball.
The Denver Broncos defense was the real story of Sunday’s dominant win over Arizona. The Demarcus Ware, Von Miller duo keeps living up to the preseason hype, applying consistent pressure on the QB and playing the run well. Von Miller looked especially strong on Sunday picking up 1.5 sacks and proving once again just how important he is to this defense. The defensive backs for the Broncos also looked impressive squaring off against the Arizona receivers. Aside from a huge passing play to Cards RB Andre Ellington, the Denver backs did particularly well containing the pass. Particularly the defense stood strong when the team needed them to most, only allowing 3/16 3rd down conversions. The first drive especially illustrated the stone wall that was Sunday’s Broncos defense. The Cardinals offense was driving down the field, reaching the Bronco’s 9 yard-line. With a combination of crowd-noise, a costly penalty, and strong defensive pressure, the Broncos forced their opponent back and held them to a field goal.
Moving forward in the season, the Broncos still look to belong at the top of the NFL table. The groin injury to Montee Ball is concerning, but Ronnie Hillman is a capable backup. Ball’s injury is even less worrisome when one remembers who is at the helm of this team. Peyton Manning is a future Hall of Fame player, and the leader of this Broncos team. This team has as much success as Manning does, and if he continues to play at such a high level, the Broncos look to continue to be a top team. If the Broncos defense continues to play at their potential as they did this Sunday that just instills even more confidence that this team is a dominating force to be reckoned with.
