NFL Week Three, Update #2

• All but two of the early afternoon games are going down to the wire. The only teams to wrap up victories before the final minutes were the Jets and the Redskins. I'm not going to go so far as to say that a college team could actually compete against the Texans, but I believe Ohio State could score two touchdowns against them.

• The Panthers just hit a last minute field goal to put away the Bucs, after blowing a 17-point first quarter lead. And almost simultaneously, Ben Roethlisberger threw an interception in the endzone to put an end to the Steelers hopes. Now that I think about it, as entertaining as that Steelers/Bengals game was, there were an awful lot of turnovers and mistakes. And disturbingly little in the way of contributions from Chad Johnson and Joey Porter.


• Rex Grossman just threw the first 4th quarter touchdown pass of his career to put the Bears ahead with under two minutes to play. And then the Dolphins, almost embarrassingly, beat the Titans by three. That shouldn't even count as a win. If the Dolphins had any pride, they'd petition the league to count that as a forfeit.
