If you like turnovers, sacks, penalties, and upset victories…this week was for you! Here’s a recap of the Week 3 action thus far:
Kansas City Chiefs at Philadelphia Eagles (Chiefs won, 26-16)
It was a great night for Andy Reid and fans of the Andy Reid Eagles era. It wasn’t such a great night for current Eagles fans.
Green Bay Packers at Cincinnati Bengals (Bengals won, 34-30)
I don’t want to talk about it.
St. Louis Rams at Dallas Cowboys (Cowboys won, 31-7)
There was a blatant foul on one of the Cowboys’ touchdowns so the score shouldn’t have counted, but even still, it was a convincing win for the Cowboys.
San Diego Chargers at Tennessee Titans (Titans won, 20-17)
Titans QB Jake Locker has waited a long time for a game-winning drive like the one he had on Sunday. Great win for the Titans.
Cleveland Browns at Minnesota Vikings (BROWNS WON, 31-27)
Who saw this one coming?
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New England Patriots (Patriots won, 23-3)
We all saw this one coming.
Arizona Cardinals at New Orleans Saints (Saints won, 31-7)
I think it’s safe to say the Saints are back in business. They’re off to a 3-0 start.
Detroit Lions at Washington Redskins (Lions won, 27-20)
This might have been a loss for the Redskins, but RGIII looked much more like himself which is a win for them in the long run.
New York Giants at Carolina Panthers (Panthers won, 38-0)
There are no words for this year’s Giants team. All I can do is offer apologies to my home state.
Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens (Ravens won, 30-9)
I’m similarly stymied over this year’s Texans team. What happened, guys?
Atlanta Falcons at Miami Dolphins (Miami won, 27-23)
This was a statement win for the Dolphins, who went into the game as the Vegas favorite but no one credited as the actual favorite. The dolphins (the DOLPHINS) are 3-0!
Buffalo Bills at New York Jets (Jets won, 27-20)
I’d comment on this game but I think they’re still out there on the field picking up the surplus of yellow flags.
Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers (Colts won, 27-7)
Colts QB Andrew Luck returned to California and put up impressive numbers against his former college coach and current 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Seattle Seahawks (Seattle won, 45-17)
I’m actually surprised that this wasn’t a more traumatic experience for the Jaguars.
Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers (Chicago won, 40-23)
This game proved something we already knew: the Bears are good. The Steelers are not.
Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos (Monday at 8:40pm, ESPN)
This has the potential to be ugly for the Raiders.
