1. Bengals erase 17 point deficit– This was the best game I saw all day long. This would be one of the biggest challenges for the Bengals early on in the season against a Seahawks team who had seemed to find their momentum after two straight wins. The Seahawks got off to a good start then got too comfortable and let the Bengals back into the game. The Bengals are off to their best start since 1988.
2. Michigan records third straight shutout– They’re finally looking like the team we’ve expected them to be and they are rolling right now. The defense is handling its business as they recorded their third straight shutout on Saturday against Northwestern at the big house. They’ll have another big test this upcoming Saturday against Michigan State.
3. Cutler leads Bears to victory– They looked to be down and out of the game but you never count anyone out of any game. The Bears were down by 14 points at one time and they erased that deficit. Cutler was clutch and stepped up when his team needed it and he threw a go ahead touchdown pass to Matt Forte to put the Bears ahead. A huge win on the road in a very tough place to play at arrowhead.
4. Patriots shut down Cowboys– After the bye week, the Patriots returned and picked up where they left off. They started slow and sluggish early on but as the game went on, they got it together. Brady had his usual day at the office and the Patriots defense held Dallas out of the redzone. Big road performance. Now it’s onto Indianapolis as Bill Belichick would say. The patriots are 4-0 for the first time since 2013.
5. Eagles roll over Saints– Coming into the game, there was a lot of concern surrounding the Eagles and their 1-3 start. This was an important game because a 1-4 hole is hard to come back from. This was the most complete they’ve looked in every phase of the game. Offensively and defensively, they looked to be locked in and played with their backs against the wall. Huge win to keep yourself alive in the division.
