First Down: Most surprising weekend results
WEEKEND REWIND IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
Saints lose to Cowboys -- And we're down to one unbeaten team in the NFL after Dallas ended New Orleans' hope for a perfect season Saturday night. The Cowboys seemed to have put the game away early as Miles Austin caught seven passes for 139 yards and a score and Marion Barber added two touchdowns on the ground. But New Orleans staged a two-touchdown rally in the fourth quarter before falling 24-17. The Colts, who beat the Jaguars on Thursday, remain the NFL's only unbeaten team at 14-0.
Georgetown loses to Old Dominion -- For those of you who expected the Hoyas' first loss to come when Big East play started, well, the Colonial Athletic Association has a history of defying expectations. "Some might call this an upset," Old Dominion coach Blaine Taylor said after the, um, upset. "But I think we've gotten to the point as a program where games like this are in the cards for us if we do the right things." The 11th-ranked Hoyas, now 8-1, should slip quite a few notches when the AP poll lands Monday. It was the third consecutive win over Georgetown at McDonough Arena for the Monarchs.
TWT FIVE MOST SURPRISING WEEKEND RESULTS
1. Richmond 56, No. 13 Florida 53 -- Especially considering the Spiders were coming off back-to-back losses to VCU and South Carolina.
2. Cowboys 24, Saints 17 -- When was the last time Dallas won a meaningful game in December?
3. ODU 61, No. 11 Georgetown 57 -- The Hoyas are not supposed to lose games like this, especially at McDonough.
4. Cubs found a taker for Milton Bradley -- The Mariners became the latest MLB team to take a chance on the troubled outfielder.
5. Wyoming 35, Fresno St. 28 (2OT) -- The Bulldogs were a 10 1/2-point favorite, came in with the nation's leading rusher and couldn't hold on to an 11-point fourth-quarter lead.
HE SAID WHAT?
"It's disappointing when you lose."
-- Saints coach Sean Payton after his previously unbeaten team fell to the Cowboys on Saturday
