NFL Score Streak: Week 8

Lions and Titans and Broncos, oh my!

I'm surprised we haven't had a week where all teams advanced.  Is this the time?

DENVER BRONCOS - Peyton for the Broncos...version 2008.

DETROIT LIONS - Now this is a statement if I've ever seen one.

TENNESSEE TITANS - Eliminated - The Titans just couldn't hang on any longer.

So, with that, we're down to just the Broncos and Lions.  Unfortunately for the Broncos, they are on the hot seat as the Lions have a bye in Week 9. The good news is Week 9 features a 52-card pack.  The Titans would have had a bye in week 9 had they survived.

Here's the rest of the cards:

Haha, Eli showing up after he's eliminated.  Eli gets picked off more than an acne scab on a teenager.  You don't have to worry about Eli coming out of the closet because he always gives it up to the other team.  Seriously, he's screwed more giants than Hagrid.  

Anyway, see you next week.

NFL Score Streak: Week 7

We're down to the final four,
so it's time for more Score,
today's cards from 2008,
Which teams will be great?

Let's do this!

DENVER BRONCOS - Woohoo, Bly is a 757 guy. Chesapeake, represent!

DETROIT LIONS - The Furrey Lion saves them just as he did in Week 5!

NEW YORK GIANTS - Elimated - Where were you on this one Eli?

TENNESSEE TITANS - Titans hold on strong!

So, we drop the Giants to leave us with three teams.  The Giants had a bye for Week 8, so they really blew.  Way to go, Eli.

Can't be too many weeks left, right?

Here's a look at the rest of the pack notables:

NFL Score Streak: Week 6

With only 7 teams remaining, we reach our second 2013 Score rackity packity:

Will more cards translate to more teams moving on? Let's find out:

ARIZONA CARDINALS - Eliminated - Wow, rough start.

CAROLINA PANTHERS - Eliminated - Ouch, two up, two down...unexpected for sure.

DENVER BRONCOS - About time some decided to show up.

DETROIT LIONS - Matt Stafford wanted to make extra sure they moved on.

GREEN BAY PACKERS - Eliminated - Seriously? Three teams on a 52-card week?

NEW YORK GIANTS - Ugh, Eli comes through.  Yuck.

TENNESSEE TITANS - And the Titans move on as well.

So, that was a little shocking.  We lost 3 of 7 teams leaving us with a final four of Broncos, Lions, Giants, and Titans.  

Let's look at the other notable cards from the pack:

Not notable to you, maybe, but notable to me.

JJ Watt is a stud.

Ravens.  Meh.

Love the design, but the images leave something to be desired.  Oh well.

See you next week!

NFL Score Streak: Week 5

Alrighty then, we're down to the elite 8.

2008 Jumbo.  32 Cards.  Let's do it.



DENVER BRONCOS - Imaginary Bonus Points for a Hokie rookie I needed!


GREEN BAY PACKERS - That Jordy Nelson Gold Zone is gorgeous (#/400)

NEW YORK GIANTS - A helmet catch saves the Giants!



So, we only lose 1 team this week, and we're down to the lucky 7.

Here's a look at other notable cards from the pack:

I'm guessing Greer is glossy and that's why I scanned it.
