This week in: American Football Week 4

Brady threw four interceptions vs the Bills

Last week in the NFL, the Buffalo Bills came from 21-0 down to beat the New England Patriots 34-31, securing a win over their divisional rival for the first time in 9 years.  After their comeback the week before against the Raiders, the Bills are showing that they finally have a team that can compete with the best and have won all three of their games this season.  The Detroit Lions also overcame a big halftime deficit to beat the Minnesota Vikings; the New Orleans Saints won a high-scoring contest 40-33 over the Houston Texans in the Superdome; the Colts put up a good fight against the Steelers, but succumbed to a late field goal; and the Packers beat their NFC North rivals, the Chicago Bears, 27-17.  On Monday night, the Cowboys edged out the Redskins despite not scoring a touchdown, all of their points coming from field goals in an 18-16 victory.

Going in to week four, three teams remain perfect – having won all of their games thus far: the aforementioned Bills, who this week travel to Cincinnati to play the Bengals; the Lions, who play the Cowboys in the Dallas; and the reigning champion Green Bay Packers, looking to improve to 4-0 at home against the Denver Broncos.  Five winless teams remain, two of whom meet in Kansas City as the Chiefs play the Minnesota Vikings.  The St. Louis Rams take on the Washington Redskins, the Dolphins are in San Diego for a game with the Chargers, and the Indianapolis Colts play Monday Night Football for their game against Josh Freeman’s Buccaneers in Tampa Bay.  In other games, the Patriots will look to rebound from their loss to the Bills in Oakland against the Raiders; the Giants and Cardinals face off in Arizona; and two of the AFC’s playoff teams from last year meet in Baltimore as the Ravens play the Jets.
