It was a wild Week 4 in the NFL. Sunday started early with a Jaguars win in London over the Colts, who have a long flight home and no rest without a bye week ahead of them. It was a tough Sunday in particular for quarterbacks as the Jets’ Ryan Fitzpatrick threw three interceptions, and the Panthers’ Cam Newton and Cardinals’ Carson Palmer both left their games in the fourth quarter with concussions.
The Bills denied the Patriots the satisfaction of going undefeated without Tom Brady, shutting out New England at home for the first time in over a decade. Finally, Ben Roethlisberger finished Sunday by raining down touchdowns on Kansas City’s defense. The Pittsburgh offense, at full strength with the return of running back Le’Veon Bell, looked resurgent after being crushed in Philadelphia last week.
Last night, the Minnesota Vikings defense suppressed one of the best wideout trios in the NFL—the New York Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr., Victor Cruz, and Sterling Shepard—to move to 4-0. Vikings’ quarterback Sam Bradford threw for 262 yards and a touchdown. If the team stays healthy, the Vikings could be serious contenders this year.
