Did you watch both games of Monday Night Football on ESPN? Did you watch both games of Wednesday Night Baseball on ESPN? If you answered yes to both questions, then you know what I am talking about. ESPN had four exciting games in two different sports on two different nights. It was the best week of sports for ESPN! Both game ones involved teams in the Boston area. This was also a great week for Boston sports fans.

Monday Night Football Game 1: Buffalo at New England. New England had the stats throughout the game, except for the score. Buffalo had the game for most of the game, including most of the fourth quarter. Tom Brady did his magic and got two touchdowns within the last few minutes of the game and got the score to be 25-24. Buffalo got the ball back and they could not get back. Patriots won that game 25-24.

Monday Night Football Game 2: San Diego at Oakland. The Oakland Raiders had one of their best games since going to the Superbowl in 2003. They were in the whole game vs. San Diego. San Diego managed to get score with eighteen seconds left in the game to win 24-20.

Wednesday Night Baseball Game 1: Los Angeles Angels at Boston. The Red Sox and Angels were fighting for the lead in the whole game. The Red Sox were trailing 8-7 going into the ninth inning. They got two outs. Then, Alex Gonzalez got the game winner for the Red Sox and won 9-8.

Wednesday Night Baseball Game 2: Colorado at San Francisco. The Colorado Rockies had the game 4-0 going into the ninth. San Francisco got three runs in the ninth, but it was not enough to beat Colorado. Colorado won 4-3 and avoid the series sweep.
