NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Schedule and More
September 22, 2014
We’ve got one more game left in NFL Week 3, then it’s time to start looking forward to the next round of games. In the meantime, there’s plenty to talk about. With that in mind let’s take our daily look around the league and see who’s making headlines out there right now. Here’s the latest.
Steelers-Panthers Wrap-Up: The Steelers took care of the Panthers on “Sunday Night Football” last night without much trouble, emerging victorious 37-19.
Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger tossed a pair of scoring passes to Antonio Brown, and Le’Veon Bell took care of the work on the ground with 147 rush yards. LeGarrette Blount also added 118 yards of his own, making it the first time since 1986 that the Steelers managed a pair of 100-yard rushers in a single game.

Chiefs RB Knile Davis did a great job against Miami yesterday, posting 32 rushes for 132 yards and a touchdown. That’s an average of 4.1 YPC in a career day for him.
Davis didn’t post any receptions, but he could get a chance to improve upon that in Week 4 when he faces the Patriots at home. All of that, of course, depends on how Jamaal Charles is doing.
There were a lot of factors contributing to the Broncos’ loss in their Super Bowl rematch against the Seahawks in Week 3, but let’s focus on Montee Ball here.
During the OT loss, Ball set a bad precedent by fumbling on his first offensive play, then finished with an abysmal 38 yards on 14 carries. His receiving yards didn’t amount to much either, with just two grabs for six yards.
Most of that can be attributed to the suffocating Seattle defense, but you have to wonder what Ball will return with when the team comes back in Week 5 against Arizona.
The Dolphins have had some high hopes this season, especially when it comes to QB Ryan Tannehill. He didn’t do so well in Week 3, posting just 21 of 43 attempts for 205 yards. He did manage a TD, but also threw an interception.
In Week 4, Tannehill will look to bounce back in London against the Raiders. Despite all the long-ball work in the off-season, he hasn’t yet hit the 250-yard mark.
Week 4 NFL Schedule: It’s time to start looking forward to Week 4 in the NFL. Here’s a look at the complete schedule, along with the start times and TV networks you can catch the games on.
