Week 11: New England Patriots 17, Philadelphia Eagles 10 (9-1) (Sunday, November 17, 2019)

Week 11: New England Patriots 17, Philadelphia Eagles 10 (9-1) (Sunday, November 17, 2019)

It was an ugly win in Philly, but we'll take it!

The defense started slowly but did its thing with dominance most of the game, and punter Jake Bailey was outstanding, giving the offense good field position. Unfortunately, our inconsistent offense couldn't take much advantage, though they did score a touchdown with trickeration: Tom throwing to Jules, who threw to Phillip Dorsett. Jules played quarterback at Kent State. :)

Anyway, Tom liked the win but didn't like the offense's performance.

Last week the Pats had their bye week with Buffalo losing and Miami and New York winning.

This week Buffalo and New York won and Miami lost.

Next week, the Cowboys come to town!

AFC EAST

NE 9-1
BUFF 7-3
NYJ 3-7
Miami 2-8

Niagara (1953)



This is my favorite Marilyn Monroe movie. Marilyn's career was just taking off, and she and Niagara Falls were wonders indeed! :)

The story is compelling, the acting fun, and the setting can't be beat! In 1953, Marilyn would also enjoy two of her most famous hits, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How To Marry A Millionaire, pictures with 'dumb blonde' roles, but in Niagara she plays a scheming wife out to kill her husband.

Jean Peters and Joseph Cotten also add acting chops in a movie that embodies 1953 sophistication. Sure, it's a melodrama and can be over-the-top, but it's smashing fun! :)
