Redskins vs. Texans
RGIII is looking good on some short passes, but he's taking too many sacks. He's holding onto the ball too long, and not throwing the ball away before contact. He's not making quick decisions even when he has receivers wide open. RGIII is showing flashes of talent, but the Houston defense isn't giving away much of anything. In the second half RGIII is looking very sharp, but you have to take care of the football. One bad exchange with Morris cost the Redskins 7 points.
Special Teams is once again killing the Redskins. Andre Roberts is doing a great job returning the ball, but the Redskins have already had a punt and extra point blocked. They can't keep having these huge mistakes if they want to win the NFC East.
If Houston can figure out their Quarterback situation they could be very very good. Fitzpatrick could be the answer, but he is looking like he always has. Serviceable but not anything special. They obviously have the talent everywhere else to be a contender.
Chicago is also losing to Buffalo, but that's what happens when you turn the ball over. What is surprising is that EJ Manuel so far is playing very well. 10/13 for 97 yards 1 TD and most importantly 0 turnovers. If he continues to play like that Buffalo could compete in the AFC East. EJ tossed an INT in the second half, and Chicago came back to tie the game up! Overtime! I got to see the end of the overtime, and Fred Jackson still has it at the age of 33. Buffalo holds on for the upset.
Miami beat the Patriots 33-20. It looks like this was a very sloppy game with a lot of turnovers. New England wasn't able to stop Miami's run attack with Lamar Miller and Moreno both having solid performances.
