Every Tuesday Sports Grind Entertainment presents you with the Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin Player of the Week. This week the recipient of this prestigious honor goes to the Miami Dolphins for getting their first win on the NFL season after beating the Kansas City Chiefs 31-3 on the road. The win makes the Dolphins 1-7 and drops the Chiefs to 4-4. Miami’s 28-point win is the third-largest margin of victory by a winless team that started the season 0-7 or worse in NFL history.
Matt Moore threw for 244 yards and three touchdowns, the first three-TD performance by a Miami quarterback since Chad Pennington in 2008. Reggie Bush ran for 92 yards and another score. Tight end Anthony Fasano hauled in two touchdown passes and wide reciever Brandon Marshall finished with 106 yards and another score. The three points allowed by the Dolphins were the fewest since they beat Buffalo Bills 16-3 on Dec. 7, 2008.
Congratulations Miami Dolphins you are this weeks Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin Player.
Miami Dolphins quarterback Chad Pennington announced that he is going to sit out the 2011 NFL season and join the FOX broadcast booth for games this season. Pennington, who will turn 35 later this month, has suffered a string of injuries late in his career. Last March, Pennington suffered an ACL injury and then suffered another shoulder injury after being named the Dolphins starting quarterback in week 10 against the Tennessee Titans.
Pennington’s best season came in 2002 with the New York Jets, throwing for 3,120 yards, 22 touchdowns and amassing a passer rating of 104.2
“I’ve played 11 years in the NFL. Despite my injuries it’s been a great ride and if it ends, it ends. I’m at the point of my life where I have to think of what’s best as a husband and as a father,” Pennington said.
Eleven year NFL veteran Chad Pennington has had four major shoulder injuries and now the free agent quarterback has suffered yet another career threatening injury. This time the injury wasn’t a shoulder but is a torn ACL that occurred during a pick up basketball game.
Pennington, a two-time Comeback Player of the Year, may have seen his last resurrection as no team will want a noodle arm quarterback with a bum knee. According to reports, he’s scheduled to undergo knee surgery on April 7.
Miami Dolphins newest starting quarterback Chad Pennington was caught on camera phone dancing and playing sing along to to Eminem’s Lose Yourself the other day in practice. Follow me around the streets of San Antonio and you can definitely catch me in the act too, so go on with your bad self James Chadwick Pennington aka Noodle Arm.
Central Michigan quarterback Dan LeFevour set the major college football record for combined touchdowns passing, rushing and receiving.
LeFevour surpassed the mark set by both Hawaii’s Colt Brennan in 2007 who was matched by Texas Tech’s Graham Harrell in 2008. Florida’s Tim Tebow ranks second among active players with 140 career TDs, entering the SEC championship game against Alabama.
He threw two passes for scores giving him 148 career TDs to help the Chippewas (11-2) beat Ohio (9-4) 20-10 for the Mid-American Conference championship. LeFevour’s second passing TD against Ohio was the 101st of his career, breaking the MAC career record set a decade ago by Chad Pennington at Marshall. He has 46 rushing scores and one receiving TD.
The Chippewas and LeFevour are expected to play in GMAC Bowl.
