NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 4 Schedule and More
September 28, 2015
We’ve got just one more game left on the NFL’s Week 3 schedule, and in the meantime there’s plenty to talk about. Let’s visit with some of the notable headlines out there right now and see what everyone’s talking about.
Broncos-Lions Wrap-Up: The Broncos got another win last night--and the Lions tallied another loss. Denver took the Week 3 edition of “Sunday Night Football” by a score of 24-12, thanks to a pair of passing touchdowns by Peyton Manning. He was 31-of-42 for 324 yards all together.
On the other side, the Lions Matthew Stafford would finish with 282 yards, one touchdown and three turnovers. He was harassed all night by the Denver defense and got no help from the running game, which totaled just 29 yards on 18 carries.

One of the biggest storylines from yesterday’s action is the injury to the Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger. He hurt his knee in the second half of the Rams game and had to be carted off the field.
That said, it’s a best-case scenario for Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger is expected to miss only four weeks, as he escaped any structural damage and sustained a relatively minor PCL sprain.
The Patriots are heading into their Week 4 bye hitting on all cylinders. The defending champs destroyed Jacksonville yesterday by a score of 51-17.
Tom Brady logged his 400th touchdown pass in this one, becoming just the fourth QB in NFL history to reach that mark.
The Arizona Cardinals are also quietly undefeated, wrecking the 49ers 47-7 in Week 3. Larry Fitzgerald had another monster game in this one, with nine grabs for 134 yards and two scores. Chris Johnson also had two touchdowns on the ground along with his 110 yards rushing.
The Buffalo Bills got back on track yesterday, logging an important divisional win against the Dolphins 41-14.
Tyrod Taylor was good in this one, with 277 yards and three touchdowns on the day. Buffalo is now 5-2 against Miami in the past four seasons--they have an 18-26 record against all the other teams in that frame.
