In one of the most anticipated BCS Championship games in history, Alabama flexed its muscle against previously top ranked Notre Dame. Alabama received the ball to start the game and went to work immediately as the Notre Dame defense could not stop quarterback A.J. McCarron and running back Eddie Lacy. The Crimson Tide scored on their first three possessions to take a 21-0 lead with 14:56 remaining in the second quarter. McCarron ended the night going 20-for-28 with 264 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. Lacy rushed for 140 yards on 20 rushes with two touchdowns (one receiving). Alabama went on to smoke Notre Dame 42-14 for their third national title in the last four years. More here.
The Redskins were in complete control of the game on Sunday after the first quarter. They had methodically marched down the field for touchdowns on the first two drives of the game against the Seahawks but quarterback Robert Griffin III appeared to have tweaked his already injured knee. It was a slippery slope for RGIII as he continued to get beat up until his knee gave way late in the fourth quarter. Now RGIII has a partial tear of his LCL and believed to have at least partially tore his ACL but he will be re-examined by Dr. James Andrews. More here.
The Jets were a woeful team this year. They were the only team that could make Eagles fans feel better about their team. The offense sputtered miserably as Mark Sanchez looked like an epic fail. Tim Tebow never got a chance to start. Greg McElroy started some games. It was a complete disaster and the Jets have responded. The Jets fired offensive coordinator Tony Sparano Monday morning. A top candidate to replace him is former Chargers coach Norv Turner. More here.
