|The Damn! Moment of Week 8||Good, bad, ugly from Week 8||MatchSport: Scary movies||The nightmare
isn't over yet
Trick or treat?
Well, that depends on what side of the field you were on this week.
The Pats, courtesy of Tedy Bruschi, turned a few tricks into one big fat treat. While Mr. Favre handed out some treats (five in fact) and was still tricked in the end by some dude from William Ligue Jr. University.
Still, it's nothing to get too upset about. As bad as it can get, Halloween is only one bad night -- well, unless you're the Vikings.
