Peter King’s Name Game



Once again, Peter King proves himself to be a master of words. In this week’s Monday Morning Quarterback, King writes the following in his analysis of the upcoming Baltimore/Tennessee second round playoff match-up:

Game 1, Saturday, Ravens (6th seed) at Titans (1st). Earlier this season, Oct. 5, at Baltimore: Tennessee 13, Baltimore 10. They should call this one the “First Team To 10 Bowl.” Baltimore led 10-3 late in the third quarter, and this is when Kerry Collins cemented his 2008 legacy.

Why does King insist this be called the “First Team To 10 Bowl” when last time these teams played, the first team to 10 lost. I understand that King is trying to say the game will be low-scoring, but unless he calls it the “First Team to 13 Bowl,” his made-up name doesn’t actually make any sense.

update: Ravens won 13-10. See, I was right, First Team to 13 won.
