Backup quarterbacks rule the day ...
... or, at least, start the day. How long does the Cowboys' Brandon Weeden have in New Orleans? What if Jimmy Clausenhas to go again for the Bears? Ditto Luke McCown for the Saints, although I think Drew Breeswill play. Do we still consider the Jets' Ryan Fitzpatrick a backup? And of course, Mike Vick will be running out there with the Steelerson Thursday night.
To quote Sam Kinison in "Back to School" ... good answer ... good answer. Jeff Hostetler will not be trotting out there for the Giants, but like Eli Manning and Phil Simms, he did win a Super Bowl for Big Blue. Giants at Bills is one of the many Super Bowl rematches -- they faced off in Super Bowl XXV -- this season, but the only one this week.
As for the rest of the games, see the results below. You'll see a few teams will be staying undefeated. And as always, feel free to share your take on any or all ... @HarrisonNFL is the place.
Elliot Harrison went 12-4 on his predictions for Week 3, giving him a record of 28-20 so far this season. How will he fare in Week 4? His picks are below.
Miami, meanwhile, would like to get that many takeaways at any point this season -- having just two through three games was surely not what the Dolphins had in mind when building this defense. Miami's offense has fared miserably, scoring only 44 offensive points, least in the AFC. In fact, if not for Jarvis Landry's punt return in Week 1's win over Washington, the Dolphins might be 0-fer. #Philbin #NYJvsMIA
Cousins was sharp in the preseason, and little question remains that starting him over Robert Griffin III was the right move. But in order for him to succeed, Washington must run the ball the way it did in Weeks 1 (161 yards) and 2 (182 yards). That starts with getting Alfred Morris more involved. Getting Darren Sproles more involved seems like the answer for the Eagles. Ryan Mathews will be running into some brick walls against this improved Redskins front, so finding Sproles in space should be a priority for Sam Bradford and the coaching staff. This game smells ugly. #PHIvsWAS
Cincinnati is playing solid football all the way around, and with Andy Dalton seeing the whole field the way he is, the Bengals are more than deserving of their top-five spot in the NFL.com Power Rankings. They merely need to tackle better than they did in Baltimore -- and get running back Jeremy Hill revved up the way he was in last year's stretch run. #KCvsCIN
