Mark Clayton had 10 catches for 119 yards yesterday for the St. Louis Rams.
In five years with the Ravens, Clayton never had 10 catches in a game, and had at least 119 yards receiving only four times.
Was Clayton a bit of a disappointment in Baltimore? Yes, you could say that. Am I happy he seems to be making the most of his fresh start? You bet.
I wasn't a huge fan of the first Ray Lewis Old Spice commercial that came out last week, but personally, I find the new one that aired during yesterday's games hysterical.
Where did that bear come from? Why is it 40 yards away from the line of scrimmage? Why is it so funny watching it run? And why can't I stop laughing when it says, "That makes sense" at the end?
Yesterday was an interesting day in the AFC North, and while it might surprise some that the Steelers are sitting atop the division despite the fact that Dennis Dixon was their quarterback yesterday, that's where things stand.
Dixon was unspectacular but solid, Rashard Mendenhall had 120 yards on the ground including the game-winning 50-yard touchdown, and the Pittsburgh defense showed it's still one of the league's best, allowing just nine points and 295 yards to a Falcons offense which is expected to do big things this year.
Meanwhile, the Bengals got stomped by the Patriots 38-24 in a game that wasn't as close as the score might indicate. Cincinnati was down 24-3 at the half and trailed 31-3 12 seconds into the third quarter before their offense finally decided to show up.
And the Browns, well, they're still the Browns. Their 17-14 loss to Tampa Bay proved that.
