Oh My Gridiron! Cats playing football

Four NFL teams are named after cats. In alphabetical order:
  • Carolina Panthers
  • Cincinnati Bengals (on the Monday night game versus Pittsburgh)
  • Detroit Lions (the Bills' next opponent)
  • Jacksonville Jaguars 
Only the Jags have a half decent record at 4-4. Cincinnati is 2-5; Detroit is 2-6 despite having scoring 15 more points than they have given up; and Carolina is 1-7. Me-OUCH!

No NFL teams scored 31 points last Sunday (31st, Halloween) while two NFL teams scored 7 points on the 7th.  Dallas painfully lost their seventh of the season to Green Bay, 45-7, while the New York Giants manhandled Seattle, 41-7. Dallas plays the New York Giants next. Fortunately for football fans in Big D, the game is in the Big Apple.


In the Canadian (Cat) Football League on Saturday, the BC Lions defeated the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, 23-21, to advance to the playoffs next Sunday in Saskatchewan. The CFL is an exciting brand of football!
