Another week of football is in the books. The season is flying and we'll be watching the playoffs before you know it.

Let's take a look at what the other AFC East teams did this weekend:


The New England Patriots faced the Seattle Seahawks. Surprisingly, the Patriots lost.

Tom Brady went 36/58, 395 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. It's rare seeing Brady throw interceptions, especially mulit-interceptions. Still playing at a high level.

The Patriots have been relying on their young running backs, Stevan Ridley and Brandon Bolden. They have been playing great football, but it did not show on Sunday. Ridley ran 16 times for 34 yards, while Bolden ran 6 times for 28 yards.

Wes Welker led the Patriots in catches and yards. He caught 10 balls for 138 yards along with a touchdown. Brandon Lloyd came in second with 6 catches for 80 yards.

The Patriots defense allowed Russell Wilson to throw for 3 touchdowns. However, they didn't give up a rushing touchdown.

After this tough lose, the Patriots look to rebound next week against the New York Jets.


The New York Jets took on the Indianapolis Colts this weekend. The Jets played better in this game, than they have the past two weeks.

Mark Sanchez threw for only 82 yards. He threw 18 passes and completed 11 of them for 2 touchdowns. A much better outing for the franchise quarterback. Still inconsistent in my opinion.

Sanchez did not throw much, due to an outstanding day by the running backs. Shonn Greene rushed 32 times for a grand total of 162 yards. Greene ended the day with 3 rushing touchdowns. Backup Joe McKnight got into the action with a 61 yard run. McKnight finished with 71 yards and 3 carries.

As stated, Sanchez did not throw much but the wide receivers looked solid, none the less. Jeremy Kerley led the team with 3 receptions for 24 yards. Shaun Hill had 3 catches for 23 yards and a touchdown. Dustin Keller was also active for the first time this season. He finished the game with 1 reception for 6 yards.

The Jets defense shutdown the Colts offense. The score was 35 - 6. Andrew Luck threw 2 interceptions and no touchdowns. With Donald Brown out, the Colts placed their faith in Vick Ballard. Ballard ended the day with 8 carries for 25 yards.

The Jets looked tough in this outing. The Jets take on the New England Patriots next week and then face the Miami Dolphins, after their bye week.


The Buffalo Bills took on the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Shockingly, the Bills won.

Ryan Fitzpatrick went 18/32 and threw for 153 yards. He did not record a touchdown or interception. Again, I find Fitzpatrick to be very inconsistent. But he played well as a game manager and allowed his team to record a victory.

The running backs had a solid day. C.J. Spiller ran for 88 yards on 12 carries. Fred Jackson ran for 53 yards on 16 carries. Both backs recorded a touchdown. Both are rehabbing from injuries and is should be fun to watch this dynamic duo.

Stevie Johnson was the only wide receiver who recorded more than one reception. He had 9 receptions for 82 yards. Fred Jackson (5 receptions, 30 yards) and C.J. Spiller (4 receptions, 22 yards) contributed also.

The defense looked good. They applied a lot of pressure to Kevin Kolb and it's about time we see some production because they put a lot of money into their front.

The Bills take on the Tennesse Titans next week.

Current Standings:
New England Patriots (3-3)
