Eagles coach Doug Pederson called Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.’s touchdown celebration Sunday unfortunate during his day-after news conference, suggesting that it’s not something that will simply be forgotten.
The Lions defense ranks seventh in total yards allowed at just 289 per game. The Falcons struggle on the road at times, and Matthew Stafford is clicking with his wide receivers right now.
Detroit sports fans are in need of a boost with the Tigers, Red Wings and Pistons struggling. They should have a good chance at celebrating the Lions’ first 3-0 start since beginning the 2011 season 5-0.
Here are a few other NFL questions for Week 3:
Brady lit up the Saints (0-2) in one of the most efficient high-volume games of his career (30-of-39 passing, 447 yards, three TDs). The big rebound wasn’t a surprise against a weary defense that got ripped by Sam Bradford and the Vikings last Monday, but the way it went down was unique.
The Patriots went into the game with only three healthy wideouts: Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan and Phillip Dorsett. Without Danny Amendola (concussion) and Julian Edelman (knee/IR), running back Rex Burkhead got work in the slot and scored the team’s first TD. Tight end Rob Gronkowski stretched the field outside for an incredible second TD from Brady.
By the end, Dorsett (knee), Burkhead (ribs) and Gronkowski (groin) all joined Amendola in ailing. Hogan (knee) had to miss a few plays. In all, six Patriots not named Brady rushed the ball, and nine Patriots had at least one reception.
