NFL Scores Week 3


Megan Klimowski, Contributing Staff Writer

The NFL season is up and running. There were many exciting matches in the league this week – from upsets, to the favorites taking care of business. Here is a rundown of how week 3 has shaped out:

Cleveland Browns – 29 Pittsburgh Steelers 17

Miami Dolphins – 21, Buffalo Bills – 19 (UPSET ALERT)

Cincinnati Bengals – 27, New York Jets – 12

The Bengals triumphed over the Jets in a dominating fashion. Our friend on 99th street is salivating at the team’s victory! 

Tennessee Titans – 24, Oakland Raiders – 22

The Titans barely made it, but won against the Raiders by 11.

Minnesota Vikings – 28, Detroit Lions – 24

Philadelphia Eagles – 24, Washington Commanders – 8

The Commanders were humiliated by Jalen Hurts and the Eagles.

Carolina Panthers – 22, New Orleans Saints – 14

Baltimore Ravens – 37, New England Patriots – 26

Minnesota Vikings – 28, Detroit Lions – 24

Shaking things up in the NFC North! 

Green Bay Packers – 14, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 12

Aaron Rodgers and company hold off a still-fresh Tom Brady and co 

Indianapolis Colts – 20, Buffalo Bills – 17

The Colts held off Jared Allen from moving down the field with a last second field goal; with the game ending in regulation without even giving them an attempt to run another play. 

And finally,

Chicago Bears – 23, Houston Texans – 20

Won on a last second field goal, the Bears defeat a winless Texans. Bears quarterback, Justin Fields, looked mediocre at best, but the Monsters of the Midway showed dominance on the run game backed by Khalil Herbert. Saved by star linebacker Rhoquan Smith, the bears held off a driving Texans team. The Bears secured the win with a last second field goal from trusty Cairo “Say it to me S.A.N.T.O.S” Santos to improve the Bears to 2-1 on the season.

Last but certainly not least, the most important football game is coming up on October 7th. It is out very own homecoming football game against Shepard. Let’s all wish our Mustangs good luck against the Astros over these next two weeks.
