NFL on Twitter: Week 6

Tuesday, 16 October 2012

It turned out to be a week of unfortunate season ending injuries, and one unprecedented comeback during #MNF.

Last year’s NFC championship matchup was a blowout, but that didn’t stop the @giants and @49ers chatter from ranking 2nd this week.

Players made headlines off the field too. Ray Sherman (@RSherman_25) notoriously approached Tom Brady after the @seahawks defeated the @patriots 24-23, and then expressed himself on Twitter.

The @ravens suffered two season-ending losses, as both @raylewis52com and @lwebb21 are done for the year.

Another season-ending injury occurred while the @nyjets were rolling to a win over @nflcolts. They unfortunately lost @revis24 to a ligament tear.  Revis tweeted thanks and gave an update to his fans.

Last but definitely not least, last night’s #MNF performance by Peyton Manning sparked a @Denver_broncos comeback with 3 TD passes in the second half. Eric Decker was surely stoked:
