For whatever reason, Eli will always be considered just an "OK" quarterback. Maybe it's because he is a contemporary of some very, very good quarterbacks—one of whom is his big brother—or maybe it's because he is kind of a doofus. Either way, here's your Sunday roundup. Enjoy.
NY Jets 27, Buffalo 11: This game started off like that much ballyhooed college game last night. Stalled drives, field goals, turnovers and missed field goals. Throughout the game, however, the Jets defense stifled the Bills and eventually Mark Sanchez was able to hook up with his big name receivers while managing not to screw everything up. There is now a three-way tie atop the AFC east.
Houston 30, Cleveland 12: Arian Foster and Ben Tate rushed for 124 yards and 115 respectively and each also scored a touchdown. Josh Cribbs had a 63 yard kickoff return but, this being the Browns, it was called back thanks to a Josh Cribbs penalty for grasping the face mask.
Miami 31 Kansas City 3: Matt Moore had three touchdowns and Reggie Bush rushed for almost 100 yards rushing and a touchdown. Man, there are some bad teams in the AFC. So much for all that Champagne, Rod Marinelli.
Atlanta 31, Indianapolis 7: All those people hoping for that Andrew Luck-Peyton Manning fistfight just had a great weekend. Earlier in the day, we saw Julio Jones and his athletic prowess in all its glory. He wound up with 131 yards and 2 touchdowns. Curtis Painter had 98. The only touchdown the Colts scored was on defense when Jerraud Powers returned an interception six yards. [USA Today]
