Takeaways From Week Three of the NFL Season

Many feats went down during Week Three of the NFL regular season. From record-breaking moments to improbable comebacks, accomplishments were accomplished during this crucial week. What went down during the third week of the NFL season?

  • R-E-L-A-X, Part Two: It turns out that 37 seconds is just enough time for Aaron Rodgers to work his magic. With San Francisco leading 28-27 with under a minute to play, the reigning MVP discount double-checked the competition and charged downfield for Mason Crosby to hit a game-winning 54-yard field goal. All the stress about Green Bay being done can be put to rest thanks to Mr. Rodgers and his heroics.

  • Justin Tucker's Unreal: Ravens kicker Justin Tucker did the unthinkable, helping Baltimore pull off a 17-16 victory over the Detroit Lions. He did it with a 66-yard field goal with time expired, watching the ball DOINK off the upright and over. Tucker's kick saved Baltimore from a disastrous upset, helping them keep pace with Cincinnati and Cleveland. The funny thing is this wasn't the longest field goal attempt of the day. Jamal Agnew of the Jacksonville Jaguars returned a 68-yard missed field goal and took the kick 109 yards for a touchdown.

  • Chief Concern? Patrick Mahomes and company must be a little concerned after a 30-24 loss to the Chargers sent them to 1-2. The former MVP threw two picks in the game, making up half of Kansas City's turnovers. The Chiefs also allowed 437 total yards, leaving some concern about the defense. Suddenly, Chiefs Kingdom is sitting in last place in the AFC West. Will Kansas City recover from their September swoon, or will this be another Super Bowl hangover?
