0-fer watch 2008: It is down to two!

Winners! We have winners!

Within seconds of each other, both the Rams and the Texans got their first win of the season. Interestingly enough, both were decided within the last 18 seconds.

In Washington, the Rams made a startling 4th quarter drive and set up a Josh Brown 49 yard game winning field goal! Rams win 19-17. Who'd have thunk it?

--welllllllllll, I think I saw a win as a possibility. After back to back tough games against the NFC East, the Redskins were over-due for a letdown game, and surely enough, they were stifled by the Rams defense. Great win for St. Louis.

In Houston, the always competitive at home Texans staged a 4th quarter comeback of their own, capped by a goal line touchdown run by quarterback Matt Schaub. Final score, Texans 29, Dolphins 28. It was an impressive display of mettle against a generally solid Dolphins defense.

Now only two winless teams remain: the Bengals and the Lions. Who will win first? The inside track is still on the Bengals, but... the NFL can make fools out of all of us. We'll see for ourselves in Week 7!
