NFL 5 43 What we learned in Week 3 31336266 Saints are becoming a pushover Saints+are+becoming+a+pushover NFL

The Saints held an 18-point lead with about 5-1/2 minutes left in the third quarter Sunday. They were home, in the ear-splitting dome. Chiefs QB Matt Cassel hardly is known for his stirring comebacks. Then running back Jamaal Charles (pictured) broke off a 91-yard touchdown run that propelled the Chiefs to a 27-24 victory in overtime. Charles had 37 yards rushing at halftime but wore down the Saints for 233 by game's end. The Saints' 0-3 record is bad enough. Losing in this manner says everything we need to know about how they are imploding in the wake of Bountygate.

Safety Thomas DeCoud (28) had two interceptions and a fumble recovery as the Atlanta Falcons extended their NFL-high turnover differential to plus-10 with Sunday's 27-3 rout at San Diego. Both teams entered undefeated, but Chargers QB Philip Rivers had one of his worst statistical performances, going 21 of 38 for 173 yards with two picks and a QB rating of 45.2.

If Sunday's game in Denver felt like a fight with Mike Tyson, that's because Texans quarterback Matt Schaub lost part of his ear on a vicious hit. But Schaub prevailed, throwing for 290 yards and four TDs while outdueling Peyton Manning in a 31-25 win.

If there was any doubt about it, Arizona erased it with Sunday's 27-6 win over the Eagles. Larry Fitzgerald, who was the guest conductor for the fall opening of the Phoenix Symphony on Thursday, made more sweet music, catching nine passes for 114 yards and a touchdown while becoming the youngest player to reach 700 receptions. Kevin Kolb threw for 222 yards and two touchdowns against his old team as Arizona (3-0) improved to its best start since 1974.

NFL 5 43 What we learned in Week 3 31330893 This guy deserves more praise This+guy+deserves+more+praise NFL

The Vikings have been mostly bad during his pro career, so linebacker Chad Greenway (pictured) doesn’t get a ton of pub. But he’s a force. A first-round pick in 2006, he missed a year because of a torn ACL and then made 10 tackles in his NFL debut. Greenway led the league in tackles in 2010 and made his first Pro Bowl appearance last year. So we shouldn’t be surprised by his monster game Sunday in Minnesota’s 24-13 upset of the 49ers. Greenway had 10 tackles, three assists and two sacks, including a crushing hit on quarterback Alex Smith. In short, he looked like a 49ers defender.

Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 43-yard field goal on the last play as the Oakland Raiders scored the final 13 points to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-31 on Sunday. Carson Palmer overcame an interception on the first play of the game to go 23 for 33 for 209 yards and three TDs. Ben Roethlisberger was even better, going 36 for 49 for 384 yards and three TDs, but the Steelers dropped to 1-2.

NFL 5 43 What we learned in Week 3 31336265 It takes a team It+takes+a+team NFL

If Bears quarterback Jay Cutler (pictured talking to umpire John Petrone) assaults his linemen during troubled times, then perhaps he owes Chicago's defensive players each a hug. Thanks to them, few will notice Cutler had another stinker Sunday (17 of 31, 183 yards, one interception). Chicago downed the Rams 23-6 while sacking Sam Bradford six times and limiting St. Louis to 160 total yards. Funny thing is, Bradford didn't hit his linemen once, no matter how often he got hit. Taking leadership notes, Jay?

NFL 5 43 What we learned in Week 3 31335021 He's part of your balanced breakfast He%27s+part+of+your+balanced+breakfast NFL

Bills defensive end Mario Williams (pictured) had a cereal named in his honor this week: MariOs. The obvious joke was the cereal comes in the shape of his sack total, 0. Well, joke's over. Williams got off the schneid Sunday with 1.5 sacks in the Bills' 24-14 victory at Cleveland. As a team, the Bills got to Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden four times and forced two interceptions. That allowed them to overcome the loss of running back C.J. Spillers to injury. Meanwhile, Williams gets to go back to business as usual at practice this week, no longer facing questions about when he might start paying dividends on his big free-agent contract.

We could just copy this text week after week and update the photo. A.J. Green is virtually unstoppable. . . . A.J. Green makes Andy Dalton's life immeasurably easier. . . . A.J. Green is yada, yada, yada. The fill-in-the-blank facts Sunday were nine catches, 183 yards and one touchdown for the Bengals' receiver. Oh, and Cincinnati beat the Redskins 38-31. The game was still very much in the balance in the middle of the fourth quarter when Dalton hit Andrew Hawkins for a 59-yard score right down the middle of the field. Think the Redskins might have had an eye or two or 22 on Green?

NFL 5 43 What we learned in Week 3 31336260 Here's your real headline Here%27s+your+real+headline NFL

Cornerback Darrelle Revis (pictured) was injured in the Jets' 23-20 overtime victory at Miami. The All-Pro left in the third quarter with a non-contact knee injury and will have an MRI to determine the extent of the damage. If it's a long-term deal, those balls bouncing off Tim Tebow's helmet won't be so funny. Those fake punts that turn into a Tebow first down won't be so exciting. And those Tebow sacks in the Wildcat formation won't be so excusable. You can get away with a sideshow offense when you have a defense that can stop people. Revis is the best player on that defense.

NFL 5 43 What we learned in Week 3 31334970 Weird is the word Weird+is+the+word NFL

This was the weirdest game of the NFL season. The Titans' 44-41 victory over Detroit on Sunday featured a bit of everything. Tennessee scored on an homage to the Music City Miracle as Tommie Campbell (pictured) took a cross-field lateral on a punt return and ran 65 yards. The Lions scored two touchdowns in 18 seconds, recovering an onside kick and hauling in a deflected Hail Mary pass as regulation time expired. Tennessee's Nate Washington caught a ball thrown between the numbers — the numbers on the back of Lions cornerback Jacob Lacey's jersey. Weirdest of all, Lions coach Jim Schwartz elected not to try a game-tying field goal in overtime and instead got his backup QB stuffed on a fourth-down sneak. Maybe he had tickets to the Grand Ole Opry.

NFL 5 43 What we learned in Week 3 31334975 MJD is not CJ MJD+is+not+CJ NFL

No, Maurice Jones-Drew will not be the 2012 version of Chris Johnson. After a holdout last year during the Titans' training camp, Johnson seemingly never got on track, never coming near his previous 2,000-yard form. And he has regressed further this year. MJD was this year's holdout, missing the Jaguars' entire preseason. But it took him only three weeks to show his old form. Jones-Drew ran for 177 yards and a touchdown Sunday as Jacksonville stole a road win at Indianapolis. That's one problem solved for the Jags and only 1,000 more or so to go.

NFL 5 43 What we learned in Week 3 31330892 The Cowboys' playmakers are on defense The+Cowboys%27+playmakers+are+on+defense NFL

It sure seems that way after the Cowboys offense has disappeared the past two weeks. After a pasting at Seattle in Week 2, the Cowboys at least came away with a 16-10 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday this time around. It was ugly. Texas Ugly. Probably even uglier on that North Forty-sized video screen. The Cowboys were fortunate to get just enough from guys like inside linebacker Sean Lee (pictured), who had an interception to set up a short field and eventual touchdown in the first quarter. Linebacker DeMarcus Ware had two sacks and forced two fumbles.
