Quarterbacks everywhere became the heroes or villains of week 4 this NFL regular season. Eli further his case as a top-tier passer while Matty Ice kept his team ahead despite a brilliant rally attempt by Tarvaris. What else happened?
New York Giants def. Arizona Cardinals: Eli Manning recovers old magic
Eli Manning returned to the same stadium where he executed the most unlikely upset in Super Bowl history and rediscovered that same magic when he threw two touchdowns in less than sixty seconds to erase a 10-point Arizona Cardinals lead for the victory.
Final score: 31-27
Atlanta Falcons def. Seattle Seahawks: Matt Ryan nips frantic Tarvaris Jackson
No one blamed the Atlanta Falcons for looking past the Seattle Seahawks, especially after quarterback Matt Ryan opened up a third quarter lead of twenty points. They never expected the embattled Tarvaris Jackson to rally his team and throw three touchdown passes to cut the lead to two. Sadly the comeback ended on a missed 61-yard field goal.
Final score: 30-28
Green Bay Packers def. Denver Broncos: Aaron Rodgers scores six touchdowns.
Four touchdown passes and two touchdown runs exemplified what Aaron Rodgers means to the Green Bay Packers. No matter what the injured Denver Broncos defense tried, they didn't have an answer for the reigning Super Bowl MVP in this NFL regular season beat down.
Final score: 49-23
New England Patriots def. Oakland Raiders: Tom Brady to Wes Welker shines
While Oakland Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell was busy giving away the game, Tom Brady leaned on a steady running game and receiver Wes Welker for a clean win. Welker caught nine balls for 158 yards and the New England Patriots had 172 rushing yards led by rookie Stevan Ridley.
Final score: 31-19
San Diego Chargers def. Miami Dolphins: Fins lose Chad Henne and the game
Philip Rivers watched from the sideline as his San Diego Chargers defense knocked Miami Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne out of the game with shoulder injury. Then Rivers calmly picked apart the Dolphins defense for 307 yards and a touchdown. Miami remains winless on the season and their coach Tony Sparano now really must fear for his job.
Final score: 26-16
Baltimore Ravens def. New York Jets: Defenses outscore offenses in crazy game
Another NFL record fell on Sunday night when the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets combined for five defensive and special teams returns for touchdowns. The Ravens had the most luck, swiping the ball from Jets quarterback Mark SÃ¡nchez four times that turned into three touchdowns. Joe Flacco and his offense weren't much better but made fewer mistakes.
Final score: 34-17
