Week 3: NFL Road to 0-16 Quick Recap: Falcons Do It Again While Panthers and Lions Win

Week 3: NFL Road to 0-16 Quick Recap: Falcons Do It Again While Panthers and Lions Win

Foles Leads Bears to Victory

Nick Foles was called on to replace Mitch Trubisky in what was a blowout game. Foles entered the game and then proceeded to lead the Bears to 20 points to beat the Falcons. There is so much concern for the Falcons that there is no right way to start, so here is a list:

  • Who, what, when, how do you forget how to play football in the 4th Quarter?
  • Are the Falcons trying not to win? Is this a tanking strategy? #TankforTrevor

Side note: Congratulations Nick Foles.  It was a great day for Foles beating the Falcons, possibly beating Mitch for the starting position, and indirectly beating the Eagles.  Having only played in one game, Foles has already match the number of touchdowns that Carson Wentz has in 3 games.

Tom Brady shined beating the Broncos

Blake Bortles did not play for the Broncos meaning Jeff Driskel started at quarterback for the day. Driskel was later benched by practice squad quarterback Brett Rypien in the 4th quarter. Nothing went right for the Broncos, who fell to an early deficit and just couldn’t manage to make a comeback.

Cousins throws more touchdowns than interceptions for the 1st time this season!

The NFL should call an audible on the season and match-up the Vikings and Falcons. Imagine the 2 best teams in the league at giving up big leads, collapsing in the moment and losing in the 4th quarter match up against each other. Which team will be worse or better at losing? Or would it be a tie?

Is Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins the only person to blame for the Vikings’ 0-3 start? Against the Titans, Dalvin Cook rushed for 181 yards, while rookie Justin Jefferson had a breakout game of 175 yards receiving.. Unfortunately, Cousins was unable to lead them to the promised land. If the Vikings plan was to primarily attack through the air, it is time for Plan B.

By the way, Stefon Diggs had only 1 game with more than 175 receiving yards during his time with the Vikings. Justin Jefferson is a special player.

Bengals & Eagles end in a tie, but it was really a win for the Bengals

Aside from winning, the best outcome for the Bengals was a tie.  The worse outcome for the Eagles also was a tie. To quote a famous movie, “Now, my old coach used to say a tie is like kissing your sister, but the way we’ve been playing, it’s more like kissing a really hot stepsister.” Bad News Bears, 2005.

Graham Gano puts points on the board for the Giants in the loss to the 49ers

Quarterback Daniel Jones throws an interception and fumbles as the Giants go down to 0-3. Jones did not bounce back at all, instead he took steps backwards. Jones has now gone without a passing touchdown 2 weeks straight and has thrown at least 1 interception each game. Is anybody else starting to wonder if the Giants regret passing on Justin Herbert, Tua Tagovailoa, Jalen Hurts, Jordan Love or any other QB?

Sam Darnold Throws Two Pick 6’s Against The Colts

Darnold gave more points to the Colts total than he did to the Jets total. The Jets are now 0-3, but hey, no time to dwell on the past. The Jets need to focus on the future and start prepping for a match-up against the 0-3 Broncos. Adam Gase can cool down his chair with a win, or at least buy him some time.

Texans go scoreless in the 2nd half; Steelers get the win 28-21

Deshaun Watson was sacked 5 times and threw 1 interception against the Steelers. Watson has already been sacked 13 times this season in 3 games, and that’s an average of 4.33 sacks per game. With 13 games left in the season, at an average of 4.33 sacks per game that is a possible 56 sacks Watson could take in 2020. In 2018, Watson was sacked a league high of 62, while in 2019 than number went down to 44. Luckily, for the Texans, next week game is against the Vikings, whose defense only has 2 sacks on the season.

Matt Prater hits the winning field goal, Lions snap 11 game losing streak
