NFL scores week 3 coverage is complete. The NFL scores week 3 coverage ended with Jets vs. Dolphins and the NFL scores week three coverage also includes a nice game between the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints that took overtime to decide. That is also a game that is going to haunt New Orleans, because they were just seconds from moving to 3-0, but will instead fall to a three-way tie in the NFC South with Atlanta and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Some might be surprised by the San Diego vs. Seattle game, where the Seahawks again pulled a great upset. Seattle was in control of the game nearly all night, and has Leon Washington to thank for two kickoffs that he brought back for touchdowns from 99 and 101 yards respectively.
Pittsburgh also proved once again that they don’t need Ben Roethlisberger in order to beat teams, and they crushed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 38-13. That was about how close the Dallas vs. Houston game was as well, as the Cowboys handed the Titans their first loss of the season, and in the process won their first game of the year. Dallas won 27-13, and with it could have created some momentum to carry through their bye week.
In the early televised game nationwide, the Tennessee Titans beat up on the New York Giants, aided by a Giants offense that kept turning the ball over. Giants quarterback Eli Manning needs to vastly improve his ball control, and several ill-advised passes may have been the difference in this game. Especially the left handed pitch-pass he tried to make into the end zone that was tipped before getting intercepted.
To anyone that doubted Michael Vick, he proved once again that this season hasn’t been a fluke so far, and beat led the Philadelphia Eagles to a 28-3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was responsible for nearly every point they put on the board Sunday, and his scrambling ability turned out to be even more valuable than the Eagles could have hoped. Now Philadelphia is 2-1 heading into their next game against the Washington Redskins. The return of quarterback Donovan McNabb could make that a must-see football game next week.
