FINAL LONDON POSTCARD FROM MARK CRAIG
Walked around Westminster Abbey, Parliament and over the Westminster Bridge on Saturday. Looking around, I had two thoughts: What an incredible city and what amazing architecture. Actually, there was a third thought: For a country that drinks as much beer as these people do, there are an amazingly small number of public restrooms. We tried to find a college football game to watch on TV, and Chip did get Georgia-LSU. Walked home in the rain, which was, believe it or not, the first significant rain of the week. Now we’re just sitting around waiting for a “noon home” game that starts at 6 p.m. 4,000 miles from the Metrodome.
MANO-A-MANO: Vikings LB Chad Greenway vs. Steelers TE Heath Miller
Who won? Miller was targeted eight times and caught six. Greenway defended him on three of those occasions, two of which were completions. Greenway’s pick and sack give him the edge.
PLAY OF THE GAME: Defensive difference
With 19 seconds remaining, the Steelers had third-and-goal from the Vikings 6. QB Ben Roethlisberger (7) was sacked by Everson Griffen (97), who beat LT Mike Adams (76) and LG Kelvin Beachum (68). LB Chad Greenway (52) also flew into the scene. The ball came loose and was recovered by Vikings DT Kevin Williams (93), securing the Vikings’ first victory of the season.
“Who knows who hit [the ball out]? I don’t know. We got the win. That’s all that matters.”
