Week 5 will see our first hobby packs.
4 Packs Panini Conteders (5 cards per pack)
2 Hobby Packs Topps Strata (6)
1 Retail Pack Topps Strata (6)
2 Hobby Packs Panini Prizm (6)
1 Retail Pack Panini Prizm (4)
|Topps Strata has thick hobby cards and thin retail cards...obnoxious.|
Let's get to the games:
ST. LOUIS RAMS 8, ARIZONA CARDINALS 0
>>> 2 base cards and 3 RCs for the Rams, but it didn't really matter, since the Cardinals dropped a goose egg.
MIAMI DOLPHINS 2, CINCINNATI BENGALS 0
>>> 2 base cards to none...snoozefest...but the Dolphins improve to 5-0.
GREEN BAY PACKERS 5, INDIANAPOLIS COLTS 2
>>> Greg Jennings' Legendary Champion insert was just too much for Andrew Luck:
BALTIMORE RAVENS 4, KANSAS CITY CHIEFS 1
>>> Each team landed one base card, but the Ravens also hit a sweet Die Cut RC:
MINNESOTA VIKINGS 1, TENNESSEE TITANS 1
>>> How's that for a boring tie. Tie goes to the Vikings because a Prizm Chad Greenway is better than a Contenders Jake Locker. I'm sure Kevin will be happy his Vikes came out on the positive side of this tie. Unfortunately for Al's Titans, they're still winless.
NEW YORK GIANTS 2, CLEVELAND BROWNS 1
>>> Manning to Cruz for the win.
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES 4, PITTSBURGH STEELERS 1
>>> 2 Vicks is better than 1 Roethlisberger, who is still winless.
ATLANTA FALCONS 3, WASHINGTON REDSKINS 0
>>> There have been 11 shutouts this season, and the Redskins are now the only team with 2.
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS 2, CAROLINA PANTHERS 0
>>> Seattle finally notches its first win.
JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS 5, CHICAGO BEARS 1
>>> Jags roll with 3 base and a RC.
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS 2, DENVER BRONCOS 1
>>> Patriots squeak out their 5th win in as many games.
SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS 23, BUFFALO BILLS 1
>>> Sorry Bills, this just wasn't fair. In addition to the Montana insert, the Niners landed 2 base cards, 2 RC, and the best card of the season, so far:
SAN DIEGO CHARGERS 2, NEW ORLEANS SAINTS 2
>>> The Saints hit a Nick Toon RC (great name!), and the Chargers hit a Ryan Mathews refractor. I gotta give the win to the Chargers because the Prizm Refractors are really nice (the scan is terrible):
HOUSTON TEXANS 4, NEW YORK JETS 1
>>> 1 base card isn't going to win you many games against the Texans.
As for the Bye teams: Cowboys 1, Lions 1, Raiders 2, Bucs 1...so I'm guessing they're pleased they had byes.
How long can the Dolphins and Patriots go undefeated? They don't play each other until Week 13...
