Anyway, I digress. We did have football on all day here yesterday and I managed to get the gist of what happened on the field, so let's review:
The Kansas City Chiefs beat the New Orleans Saints, making the Saints record 0-3. Chiefs player Jamaal Charles is doing amazingly well. The Saints, however, have been plagued by a
"bounty" scandal (now nicknamed "Bountygate") in which several defensive players and coaches were alleged to have operated a fund that paid out non-contract bonuses (bounties) for specifically trying to injure players on the opposing team. Nice, right? In any case, all of the turmoil definitely isn't helping as they have yet to win a game this season.
The NY Jets beat the Miami Dolphins 23-20 in overtime (OT). The Dolphins kicker missed what would have been the game winning field goal. Bet he had a rough night. Jets cornerback, Darrelle Revis, tore his ACL muscle and is now out for the season.
The Tennessee Titans beat the Detroit Lions 44-41 in OT. According to the Associated Press, the Titans became the first NFL team to score five touchdowns of 60 yds or longer in a single game.
RGIII and his Washington Redskins lost this week to the Cincinnati Bengals 38-31.
The San Francisco 49ers ended their winning streak and lost to the Minnesota Vikings 24-13.
In the afternoon games, the Oakland Raiders beat the Pittsburgh Steelers with a last second field goal making the score 34-31, but the most memorable play in that game was the crushing injury of Darrius Heyward-Bey. I actually saw this one live and it was brutal. He got pancaked between two cornerbacks and it looked to me like he was unconscious even before he hit the ground. After lying motionless on the field for about 10 minutes, they lifted him on to a stretcher and was taken to the nearest hospital. So far it seems he has a concussion and a possible neck injury. Stay tuned.
A huge surprise this season has been the undefeated Arizona Cardinals. They beat Michael Vick and his Philly Eagles 27-6.
Peyton Manning and his Broncos lost again this week to the Houston Texans. The Texans are also undefeated.
The Atlanta Falcons pummeled the SD Chargers 27-3 and are also undefeated as of week three.
