Two weeks ago, Drew Brees won the Battle of the Old Coots, Part 1, when he outplayed Tom Brady. This week he lost Part 2 to Aaron Rogers. Their QB performances were about dead even, but Aaron got the W thanks in part to the mighty foot of Mason Crosby who came out for seven kicks and nailed every one. The Packers’ offense was so efficient that they scored almost every time they had the ball. They had no turnovers and needed only one punt all day. The Packers’ 122 points for the season is the 5th highest total for the first three games of the season in the modern era.
Dak Prescott passed for 450+ yards for the second week in a row, but this time it took him 57 attempts, and he couldn’t even pull off a W.
Dalvin Cook rushed for 181 yards for the Vikings, but they lost as well.
Russell Wilson passed for 14 TDs in the first three games of the year, an all-time record, breaking the mark set by Mahomes just last year. (Thanks to the commenters for catching my omission of this one.)
The New York teams are headed in opposite directions. The Bills are lookin’ good at 3-0, but neither the Jets nor the Giants have managed a win yet, and they both got slaughtered Sunday. (36-7 and 36-9)
Mahomes was pretty close to perfection in the Chief’s 34-20 victory.
