If Sunday's NFL action didn't thrill you, you must have ice water in your veins.
As I told my wife, Sunday's games, particularly the early contests, were the most exciting I've seen on one Sunday in a while. There were high-scoring games, close games, a near upset in New England and constant lead changes late in the fourth quarter of the Baltimore/Minnesota game.
The one key element to all this excitement, in most cases, was the weather. We had snow
in near D.C., Baltimore, Green Bay and
Pittsburgh, but the blizzard-like conditions in Philly provided the most
visually appealing matchup of the day.
I'll write more on this later – real-world stuff is getting in the way of important Rainout Blog stuff today – but for now I'll link you to a pretty cool snow-game gallery on NFL.com.
