It was a wild Sunday in the NFL with some highly anticipated games. First up, it was Robert Griffin III and the Redskins heading to Green Bay to take on an 0-1 Packers team. In fact, both of these teams were 0-1 headed into the game, and statistics say that any team that starts 0-2 has only a 12% chance of making the playoffs. So both teams desperately needed a win. Unfortunately for the Redskins, they have had to put RG3 in a pocket-passing position because his knee is still an issue. This takes away RG3’s running game, which is what he’s known for. Thus, the Redskins couldn’t get anything going on offense. Meanwhile, the Packers looked incredible. Aaron Rodgers threw for over 300 yards and 3 Touchdowns IN THE FIRST HALF!!! They never looked back, and the Packers easily secured a victory. Green Bay 38, Washington 20.

Elsewhere, everyone expected the high-flying Eagles to absolutely destroy the San Diego Chargers. The Chargers were coming off a heartbreaking loss to the Texans, and also had to fly across country for an early start time. The Eagles showed their explosive offensive skills last weekend, thanks to the rejuvenated Chip Kelly offense. In this game Eagles quarterback Michael Vick and the offense didn’t miss a step, basically scoring at will. The only problem is… the Eagles couldn’t stop the Chargers in any way shape or form. In fact, they made Chargers receiver Eddie Royal look like Jerry Rice out there. Royal had 3 touchdowns on the day. In the end, the Chargers marched down the field and got a last second field goal to win the game. San Diego 33, Philadelphia 30.

Then, it was time for THE MANNING BOWL III. These guys play every 4 years, and it’s always interesting to see brothers Peyton and Eli go head-to-head on the field. This time, however, Peyton is with a new team: The Denver Broncos, and they looked absolutely phenomenal last weekend against the Baltimore Ravens. The Giants were coming off a loss to the Cowboys, and looking for a win at home to avoid going 0-2. Well, they weren’t going to find that win against Peyton and the Broncos. The machine just kept rolling along, with the Broncos offense getting the job done behind Peyton’s 307 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Broncos move to 2-0, while the Giants are now 0-2 and looking for answers. Denver 41, NY Giants 23.


Finally, boxing champion Floyd Mayweather defended his title this weekend agains the Mexican star Canelo. This fight was hugely hyped, so much so that Mayweather was paid a guaranteed $41Million just to fight. Mayweather had his way with Canelo. He didn’t knock him out, but it was clear that Mayweather had control of the fight from beginning to end. The judges made the call, and Mayweather was hoisted in the air as the champ. Now everyone is wondering who he will fight next. This guy is one of the best boxers of all time.
