Week 3 of the NFL season was another buffet of bad plays and decisions. The Bucs just stunk, another “celebration injury,” and some fights on and off the field were among the biggest low-lights of the week.
The Entire Tampa Bay Buccaneers Team
From coached to players the Bucs had one of the most pitiful performances in recent memory. The final of 56 to 14 against the Atlanta Falcons doesn’t give this sloppy game any justice. Defense gave up 8 touchdowns while the office turned the ball over with 4 fumbles and a pick-six interception.
Ram’s Jared Cook Shoves His Own QB On The Sideline
After dropping a pass that could have been a big play, a frustrated Jared Cook walked by his current QB and gave him a nice shove. It wasn’t Austin Davis (third stringer making his second start) that Cook dropped an easy touchdown.
Detroit’s Stephen Tulloch Suffers ACL Tear While Celebrating
It happened years ago to kicker Bill Gramatica and now once again the excessive celebration injury has reared it’s ugly head. On Sunday it befell Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch. He had just sacked Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers when his excessive mock of the “Discount Double Check” ended in a knee injury.
Woe Is QB
— Broncos Peyton Manning, Raiders Derek Carr had a decent games that ended in interceptions.
— 49ers Colin Kaepernick and his offence was totally flat in the second half for the second week in a row.
— The Lions won despite Matthew Stafford having two interceptions and a fumble.
— EJ Manuel’s intentional grounding for a safety was pretty bonehead … even for a young quarterback.
Niners And Cardinal Fans Get Into A Bloody Brawl
Proving that the violence in football can spill into the stands, some unruly fans from both teams got into a blood brawl in the stands. The violent brawl in the upper deck of the University of Phoenix stadium spilled down a staircase and left several several fans bloodied during the San Francisco 49ers game at Arizona Sunday.
The NFL and Roger Goodell Are Still In The Doghouse
Amid continuing controversy, Goodell had a press conference that basically address very little and said the NFL would have a better policy on violence by the Super Bowl. Felt like too little and little too late.
