REDSKINS 31-TEXANS 15 [Sportz 1-0 this week, 21-12 this year]: The Redskins offense looked as good as they've looked bad in the first two weeks of the season. Mark Brunell completed his first 22 passes, breaking the NFL single game record. Clinton Portis scored twice; Ladell Betts ran over the Houston defense, and the Skins get their first win of the season.
COLTS 21-JAGUARS 14 [Sportz 2-0, 22-12]: The Jaguars defense did a good job holding down the Indy offense. A punt return for a TD mixed with a Peyton Manning bootleg for a TD put the Colts in first in the AFC South.
PACKERS 31-LIONS 24 [Sportz 2-1, 22-13]: Brett Favre, like Mark Brunell, didn't look like an old washed-up QB. Favre threw three TD passes and had Green Bay's offense looking crisp.
JETS 28-BILLS 20 [Sportz 2-2, 22-14]: A weird game that saw the Bills play pretty well but the Jets still able to have a big lead and hold on for the win. Buffalo dominated this game but still came away with the loss.
PANTHERS 26-BUCCANEERS 24 [Sportz 3-2, 23-14]: Carolina had a 17-0 lead....then Tampa went on a 21-3 run. The game ball goes to John Kasay who kicked four FGs [three of them 50 yds or longer] and Chris Simms, the Tampa QB who apparantly ruptured his spleen during the game, yet unknowingly, played on.
BENGALS 28-STEELERS 20 [Sportz 4-2, 24-14]: Carson Palmer looked good....throwing 4 TDs while Ben Roethlisberger looked horrible, again. Huge loss for Pittsburgh, as they fall two games behind Cincy and Baltimore in the AFC North.
BEARS 19-VIKINGS 16 [Sportz 5-2, 25-14]: In a battle of 2-0 NFC teams....this game was at times really depressing to watch.
DOLPHINS 13-TITANS 10 [Sportz 6-2, 26-14]: Sorry, but Miami looks like crap and why we even thought they could have been a Super Bowl contender is beyond me.
RAVENS 15-BROWNS 14 [Sportz 7-2, 27-14]: Cleveland snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by "letting" Matt Stover beat them with a FG in the closing seconds.
SEAHAWKS 42-GIANTS 30 [Sportz 8-2, 28-14]: Seattle jumped all over the Giants 42-3 on the strength of 5 TD passes from Matt Hasselbeck. What should worry Seattle fans is the fact that they are struggling running the football....one of their usual strengths.
EAGLES 38-NINERS 24 [Sportz 9-2, 29-14]: Man that Brian Westbrook. Three TDs and 164 total yards lifed his Philly Eagles to an impressive win in San Fran.
RAMS 16-CARDINALS 14 [Sportz 9-3, 29-15]: This game ended too strangely to phathom....but Arizona shot themselves in the foot here. Down 16-14 late in the game, Arizona had driven into FG range and was just moving the ball up a bit before Neil Rackers' FG attempt when........Kurt Warner fumbled the snap, St. Louis pounced on it, and the game was in hand.
BRONCOS 17-PATRIOTS 7 [Sportz 9-4, 29-16]: Tom Brady didn't look that good, but still threw up 55 passes and mounting 320 yds. But Javon Walker's big day kept Denver from slipping up here.
