In week three of the 2015 football season, things are starting to heat up. This week the Philadelphia Eagles and the 2-0 Jets bout was important for both teams. The Jets came off a good start with beating both the Cleveland Browns and the Indianapolis Colts, with the help with an effective passing offense from Ryan Fitzpatrick and its passing defense from Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromatorie. However all was not well for the New York Jets against the eagles with a back to back loses. The running game from the eagles was effective enough where Malcolm Jenkins and Walter Thurmond scored two touchdowns and by the second quarter, the Eagles were ahead of the Jets 21-7. 

Three days before the the Jets-Eagles match, the New York Giants scored their first win with a pair of touchdowns from Eli Manning to Odell Beckham Jr.

For Carolina, the Panthers tight-end Greg Olsen fired on a high target for Cam Newton, scoring two touchdowns to win 27-22. The Dallas Cowboys established a good running game with the help of Joseph Randle who scored 3 touchdowns. Nonetheless, despite the running game, Dallas lost that game to the Atlanta Falcons 38-27.

With the Arizona Cardinals in full flight with three straight wins, there a lot of high hope for the team. Last week, Cardinals cornerback Tyrann Mathieu knew 49’ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s every move and throughout the game and went on to pick six interceptions to help Arizona win 47-7, and contained Kaepernick’s passing offense. In a close game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the St.Louis Rams, both teams fought hard despite the steelers long franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and replacing is Veteran quarterback Michael Vick. In the start, Le’veon Bell came back from suspension was able to score his first and only touchdown for the Steelers, with seven receptions. Later in the game “Big Ben” tore his MCL in the huddle, which will leave him out 6-7 weeks. Only time will tell if the loss of such a big time player will not only affect the team, but the status of the NFL.
