New England Patriots vrs New York Jets
This was a game both teams needed. They both came in 0-2 and wanted to get something rolling. The Jets have had some tough loses even though their offense as been very good. The Patriots on the other hand have stunk. New starting QB Ryan Mallett has looked terrible so far. One of the worst ratings in the NFL and a 0-4 TD to INT ratio. This is a key game for him because news has leaked that NE is look hard at FA QB Josh Freeman.
The first quarter was nothing special with both teams struggling a little. The Patriots were able to move the ball but, Mallett made a couple of bone headed int's. Once when they were in FG range.
In the second quarter Mallett and the New England offense finally started to get something going and they ended up leading 14-3 at the half.
The Jets came storming back in the 3rd and put up 14 points to the Pats 7. It was 21-17 New England going into the 4th. The Jets out scored the Patriots again 11-7 and tied the game with 18 seconds left. The reason they had a chance to tie it is still being debated among the NE press. Some wonder why coach Henderson didn't chose to go for it when it was 4th and 1 on the NY 36. "I really wanted to go for it because of the backward wind indicator. It said the wind was blowing 8 miles and hour in our favor but, it was really the opposite of that. I didn't think we could make the FG but, I didn't want coach Mogriffjr to think I was being cheesy by going for it. So we took our chances with the FG attempt" he said with a smile. The press just looked confused. What was he talking about. What wind indicator was he talking about. Does he think this is some kind of video game or something.
Once the game went into over time the Jets won the toss. New England got a crucial Int as a result of a wrong button push by the Jets QB. (again with the video game references?!) New England ran the ball a few times and lined up for the game winning FG. The Jets called a time out to ice the kicker and it worked because as he was getting ready to kick the game got laggy and he almost missed the FG. The ball barely went over the cross bar and the Pats got their first win of the season in dramatic fashion.
Final Score 31-28 Patriots
Ryan Mallett get the POTG. He did a great job of recovering from a couple of bad picks and had a really nice game. He made the throws he should and did a nice job moving the ball. He ended up going 15-22 for 284 yards and 4 TD's.
Great game Mogriffjr
Redskins get sloppy 45-24 win vs Eagles
This score was pretty misleading as the Redskins got some breaks on a rainy day in Philly. Washington would get out to a 7-0 lead when Pierre Garcon took a WR screen 26 yards for a TD. Philadelphia would answer back with a great drive where rookie QB David Fales picked apart the Redskins defense and Lesean McCoy capped off the drive with a TD run. After an RG3 interception, Philly would score again when Fales found McCoy in the middle of the field working out of an empty backfield. McCoy would break a tackle and take it into the endzone and the Eagles were now up 14-7. After stalling on their next drive, the Redskins would give up another TD pass when Fales connected with Jeremy Maclin.
After getting chewed out my Coach HotRod, the Redskins started to get it together in all three phases. On the ensuing kickoff, Da'rel Scott shook the defenders and broke free to cut the lead down to 7. Washington would get a stop on the next drive and knock in a FG to cut the lead to 4 points. At the end of the half with the Eagles driving, reserve CB E.J. Biggers made two keys plays on consecutive plays. On a 2nd down, Fales threw a deep ball to Desean Jackson who was seemingly bound to come up with the ball as he had a step or two on Biggers and safety Bacarri Rambo. Biggers would close the gap and help to break up the play. On the next play Ryan Kerrigan would sack Fales and force a fumble which after being knocked around a couple times would be picked up by Biggers who would run it in for a touchdown to give the Redskins a 24-21 lead. Philly would get back in FG position at the end of the half to tie the game up going into the 3rd quarter.
After a few defensive stops by both teams, the Redskins finally broke the tie late in the 3rd quarter on a TD run by Alfred Morris. At this point the Redskins defense was finding their groove. On the Eagles next drive they would get into Redskins territory but Fales would throw his second pick of the game to Josh Wilson who returned it back into the Eagles half of the field. On the next play RG3 would find Pierre Garcon for a 56 yd TD pass off play action to extend the lead to 14 points. On the Eagles next offensive play Fales would connect with Jackson who broke free for some extra yardage but in the process of fighting for yards a hit by Brian Orakpo would jar the ball loose and Koa Misi would pick it up and return it deep into Eagles territory. Morris would run in another TD to seal the game for Washington to give the Redskins a 3-0 start to the season.
Robert Griffin III: 11-19, 191 yds, 2 TD, INT
Alfred Morris: 21 car, 88 yds, 2 TD
Pierre Garcon: 5 rec, 118 yds, 2 TD
David Fales: 14-24, 262 yds, 2 TD, INT
LeSean McCoy: 19 car, 72 yds, TD
DeSean Jackson: 4 rec, 97 yds
Cool video and nice 4th quarter
Unicorns, Show Ponies, Where's the Beef!!!!!
Bears 38 Cowboys 36
What a game! This was a back and forth battle that went down to the wire with the Bears squeaking by the America's Team for their first win of the 2014 campaign. Things didn't start well for the Bears with Matt Forte fumbling on the first offensive play of the game. The Bears defense was able to keep the Cowboys to a field goal. The Bears responded with a field goal of their own on the ensuing drive. The Cowboys answered with a Tony Romo touchdown pass. The Bears answered with 3 unanswered touchdowns of the own, taking advantage of 2 Tony Romo interceptions. The Bears were feeling confident with a 24-13 halftime lead. The Cowboys outscored the Bears 17-0 in the 3rd with a 51 yard strike to Dez Bryant and a Jay Culter INT taken back to the house. The Cowboys started the 4th with a 30-24 lead. They added a field goal and the Bears answered with Brandon Marsall TD. The Cowboys kicked at Field Goal with 4 seconds remaining giving them a 36-31 lead. The Bears were able to return the squib kick to their own 45 with time for one play. Jay Culter threw up a pray from his own 40 yard line into the right side of the endzone and Brandon Marshall somehow pulled it down for the score with no time remaining. The capacity crown on hand at Soldier Field went nuts. The extra point was converted giving the Bears the 38-36 victory. Good game T.B.A.R. I definitely squeaked by on luck in this one.
Tony Romo 293 yards, 2 TDs, 2 INTs
Dez Bryant 7 REC, 147 Yards, 1 TD
Jay Cutler 279 Yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT
Brandon Marshall 5 REC, 157 Yards, 3 TDs
Matt Forte 18 Carries, 101 Yards, 1 TD
Vikings Take Early Lead; Hold on Late to Beat Hawks in Coach Noles First Game
Seattle, WA - The Vikings & Seahawks both came into their Week 3 match-up sitting at .500 (1-1) on the season, neither team wanting to move to below .500 this early in the season in what looks to be a tough NFC. The Vikings knew they had their hands full, but wasn't sure what to expect considering the Hawks were playing their first game under a new head coach. This one looked like it would get out of hand early, but got interesting late...
The first half was dominated by Minnesota. They came out and scored on their first drive, capped off by a 6-yard TD run by Adrian Peterson. The teams both punted on their next drives, before Minnesota put together a long scoring drive, once again capped off by a short TD run by Adrian Peterson. The Vikings D was stout in the first half, getting to QB Russell Wilson for multiple sacks. Another punt lead to another score the Vikings, who found themselves up 21-0 with 2 minutes to play in the half. On the Seahawks ensuing possession, RE Jared Allen sacked Wilson, forced a fumble that was picked up by LB Thomas Howard inside the Seahawks red zone. The Seahawk D would hold strong inside the 10 yard line, stuffing AP three times in a row to force a FG as time expired in the half. Score at half: 24-0 in favor of MN.
The Vikings came out in the 2nd half conservative on offense & defense, and it almost ended up costing them the game. On their first drive of the half, they put together a couple of nice first downs but AP was stripped by DT Red Bryant to force their first turnover of the game. They Hawks would then finally put some points in the board, a 14-yard pass from Wilson to TE Dennis Pitta, to cut the lead to 24-7 at the end of 3.
The 4th quarter began with another FG by the Hawks. Then, after forcing a Vikings punt, Percy Harvin would make his old team pay, taking the punt 86 yards to paydirt. And just like that, the Seahawks had cut the lead to 7! However, on the ensuing kickoff WR Cordarrelle Patterson would return it 65 yards deep into Seahawk territory. This lead to a FG, and four incompletions by Wilson later, ballgame.
Great game, KnightNoles.

Good game man, rode the early MO and I took it back too late. When you brought the Patterson kick out, I was so happy because that return usually never works against me and it bit me. I think if a tackle is made and maybe make you drive we could have had the chance to send it to OT.
A lot to learn with this Hawks PB
Welcome to the big leagues kid.
When do I play your vaporized, high ass?
You don't want those Cats brah.
Titans @ Buccs
Tennessee travels on the road for the second straight week and face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Titans (2-0) vs. Buccs (1-1) lets get it on.
Titans received the ball first and score early on to take a 7-0 lead. The Buccs punted on their first possession. Chris Johnson would come out on the next Titans drive and move the ball effectively and ultimately leading to a Locker 1 yard TD dive. Titans lead 14-0 after 1Q.
In the 2Q the Buccs started getting their offense going and finally drove down the field and scored. QB Glennon plowed into the end zone from 2 yards out. After Tampa's long drive the Titans came out and scored quickly after Kendall Wright made the defender miss and took the short pass to the house. Titans lead 21-7. Both teams traded punts and the Buccs got the ball close to the two-minute warning. Glennon was driving near mid-field when he threw an ill-advised pass to Rookie MLB Mosely. Titans would drive down and CJ would score his second TD of the game and take a commanding 28-7 halftime lead.
The 3Q starts with the Buccs driving down the field and scoring on their first possession of the half. A much needed shot in the arm. As the team seemed to wake up after the drive. Titans wound up punting on their first attempt and the Buccs would drive deep into Titan territory. The 'D' stepped up and forced a FG. Titans lead 28-17.
The Titans tacked on an early FG in the 4th and kept Tampa off the board for the remainder of the game. FINAL 38-17 Titans.
CJ was huge in this game, racking up 200 yard on only 14 carries. MLB Mosely continues to be a force on the 'D' as a Rookie. He had 10 tackles and another INT.
GG. Nothing was going your way, and good luck the remainder of the year.
