Week 3 Roundup: The NFL Finishes Yet Another Action-Packed WeekPublished September 25, 2018 by Sol FH
Ahead of Week 4, take a look at what went down in some of the biggest Week 3 matchups.
Week 3 of the NFL regular season is behind us, and we must talk about a few of the biggest upsets that went down over the weekend. What we saw from Thursday to the Monday Night matchup was incredible, and there were a lot of questions that we will need to answer before kickoff on Thursday Night.
For all you Patriots-haters out there, what we saw in their 26-10 loss to the Detroit Lions could be the end of the New England Tom Brady-era, as they looked like one of the worst offenses in the league. True, the Patriots were 2-2 in last years' opening and went on to lose the Super Bowl, but the way that Brady lost control of his offense on Sunday was terrible. Perhaps one too many sacks on the old #12, but New England will need to start to show signs of life come next week's game against the Dolphins.
Vikings Upset by Bills
The Minnesota Vikings were shocked by the Buffalo Bills in last week's 27-6 victory. Led by an excellent showing by their Rookie QB, Josh Allen, the Bills literally hurdled over the supposed best defense in the NFL on the way to a much-needed win. Anyone that looked at the odds last week would've assumed that the Vikings would've won that game, but a good showing by the Bills to get the win.
Jimmy Garoppolo Leaves on a Stretcher
The 49ers looked good until they didn't. That is the way she goes sometimes and losing a young QB to what looks like a season-ending ACL tear is the worst you could wish for in terms of offense. The 49ers went on to lose the game 38-27, but Garoppolo had 251 yards and two touchdowns before a nasty collision took him off the field and into the locker room.
Another Overtime Win
This season has surely been the season for OT. For anyone that watched Drew Brees run into the end zone to tie the game 37-37 really saw a geriatric QB with a ton of passion. Brees recently passed Brett Favre on the all-time completions list with 6,301, and he really looks comfortable again this year so expect big things from the Saints.
