1) Bad news for the Buffalo Bills.  They came into Arizona as one of the three undefeated teams in the league, but they sure didn’t look like a team to be reckoned with.  For starters, their quarterback, Trent Edwards, was knocked out in the first quarter and carted off the field.  He was replaced by J.P. Losman, and the Bills just didn’t look the same.  With the exception of an 87 yard TD bomb to Lee Evans, the Bills turned into a Turnover machine, and were absolutely trounced by the Cardinals.  Arizona 41, Buffalo 17.

2) Over in Baltimore, the 4-0 Tennessee Titans came to town, and it was a battle of the top two defenses in the NFL.  Even Olympic hero and Baltimore native, Michael Phelps was on hand.  Baltimore’s defense had the edge early, intercepting 2 passes from Titans QB Kerry Collins.  But, in the end, the Titans came roaring back, and they took the lead at the end with a Collins touchdown pass to Tight End, Alge Crumpler.  The Titans remain undefeated at 5-0.  Tennessee 13, Baltimore 10.

3) And the only other undefeated team, the NY Giants hosted the Seattle Seahawks.  Listen — there is definitely something wrong with the Seahawks.  They are absolutely abysmal when having to travel to the east coast to play a 1:00 game.  It almost looked like a practice for the Giants, and Eli Manning is establishing himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.  He threw for 267 and two TDs, and just shredded the Seahawks defense.  NY Giants 44, Seattle 6.

4) Down in Texas… some awesome, then sloppy football from the Houston Texans.  Back-up QB Sage Rosenfels started for the ill Matt Schaub.  And boy did he look great through 3 quarters, throwing for 246 yards and a TD.  It looked like the Texans would win the ball game, but Sage Rosenfels completely fell apart in the final 2 minutes.  He had 2 critical fumbles, which the Colts converted to touchdowns, and the Texans shockingly lost the game at the end.  Indianapolis 31, Houston 27.

5) And what is happening with the Dolphins.  In their opening game, they looked like a JV football team.  But now, they look terrific.  They’re playing to their strengths, running trick plays almost every possession.  In their past two games, they’ve knocked off the Patriots in New England, and the Chargers in San Diego.  They are simply jelling.  Out of all the teams out there, the Dolphins are easily the most fun to watch.  For proof, just watch their Running Back, Ronnie Brown, line up at quarterback and their quarterback, Chad Pennington, line up at Wide Receiver.  You never know what Dolphins head coach, Tony Sparano, has up his sleeve.  If you can, go to a sports bar and watch this team next week.  Miami 17, San Diego 10.

And in baseball, the Philadelphia Phillies knocked off the Milwaukee Brewers 3 games to 1.  This sets up an exciting National League Championship game between the Philadelphia and Los Angeles; two fan bases that passionately want to win a world series.  It’s gonna be an incredible match-up.
