Recap of week 3

leave a comment »

The week started off with a New York Giants win over the Carolina Panthers 36-7. Then the Colts played against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Andrew Luck played pretty well again for being a rookie, and had a couple really strong passes. But this week and last week showed some of the reasons that Luck was the number one draft pick. Sadly the Colts could not conjure up another win and lost 22-17.

Other games that had a surprising ending was the Vikiings beating the 49ers 24-13. Chiefs winning over the Saints 27-24, the anticipated game of the Bengals vs the Redskins with the Bengals winning 38-31, and Baltimores win over the Patriots 31-30.

But the game that will have people talking for weeks is last nights game of the Seattle Seahawks vs the Green Bay Packers, in the final play of the game the Seahawks were down 12-7 with 8 seconds to go and Russell Wilson threw the ball for one last hail Mary. The result: M.D. Jennings and Golden Tate fought for the ball in the end-zone. The one of the two refs that were watching called it as a TD for the Seahawks while the other one  called it as an interception. After much debating they came to the conclussion that it was in fact a TD for Seattle.

Many people were not happy about this decision mainly the Packers fans, and if you rewatch the play you can obviously see that Jennings had the ball in his possession but Tate grabbed on at the last second thus looking like he had the ball as well. Tate not only shouldn’t have gotten the TD but he should have gotten called for pass interference as he pushed another player away from the ball before grabbing on.

Also many people have not been happy at all with how the replacement referes  have handled some of their calls. Saints QB Drew Brees has called the replacements “Embarrassements to the league”. So everyone fans and players alike is hoping now more than ever that the regular officials and the NFL come to an agreement quickly.
