NFL Scores Week 3: Complete Roundup of the Day's Action
If you're looking for a complete roundup of the Week 3 NFL Scores, then look no further.
We have everything from the first kickoff at 1 p.m. through the rest of the afternoon.
There were great plays and unbelievable scores throughout the league this week, so let's not waste anymore time and get to the action.
*Note* This piece has been updated to include the Sunday Night Game of the Jets versus the Dolphins.
The Super Bowl Champs Are Upset 27-24

The Atlanta Falcons put the New Orleans Saints on the losing end of a game-winning field goal this week.
The Saints now are 2-1, but barely squeaked a victory out over the 49ers last week.
The Falcons held their own against a very tough Pittsburgh Steelers defense in Week 1 and now have beaten the defending Super Bowl champs.
Matt Ryan threw for 228 yards and two touchdowns. That's pretty good.
Kansas City 31 San Francisco 10

The Kansas City Chiefs now are 3-0 as they dominated the San Francisco 49ers.
Matt Cassel was 16 for 27 for 250 yards and three touchdowns while the 49ers fell to 0-3.
San Francisco's Head Coach Mike Singletary may start finding himself on the hot seat if this team doesn't start showing some improvement.
The Chiefs, on the other hand, now look like they are going to be a legitimate playoff threat moving forward.
Tennessee 29 New York Giants 10

What can you say about Chris Johnson that hasn't been said before? The guy is good, and running 125 yards and two touchdowns is about what you expect out of him week-to-week.
The Giants turned the ball over twice in the Red Zone, took a safety, and committed five personal fouls.
You don't win football games by making that many mistakes, there's just no deeper analysis you can give than that.
Cincinnati 20 Carolina 7

Carson Palmer threw two interceptions, but the Bengals still managed to spoil rookie Jimmy Clausen's first NFL start.
Clausen was unspectacular in his start, throwing for 188 yards, but he wasn't the whole reason the Panthers lost and the Panthers can't put all the blame on him.
The Bengals only proved they are good enough to overcome mistakes when playing a bad team, which should serve them well next week in Cleveland.
Pittsburgh 38 Tampa Bay 13

The score was 38-13 but it wasn't that close as Tampa Bay scored a touchdown in what amounted to garbage time.
Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch channeled his inner John Elway and put on a show with two long throws for touchdowns to Mike Wallace.
The Bucs were completely shut down to the point quarterback Josh Freeman was benched halfway through the fourth quarter.
Patriots 38 Bills 30

In the most surprising game of the year so far, the Buffalo Bills held their own against the New England Patriots before finally succumbing to Bill Belichick's wrath.
C.J. Spiller was the star of the show, scoring two touchdowns, one a 95-yard runback off of a kickoff.
But there's no stopping Tom Brady, and the Patriots pulled out another victory.
Raven 24 Browns 17

Peyton Hillis ran for 144 yards against Baltimore's defense but Joe Flacco kept finding Anquan Boldin, and that was the story of the game.
Browns cornerback Eric Wright was torched on almost every play that went his direction and the Browns offense sputtered late.
The Browns did score a second half touchdown, which is an improvement over the last two weeks, but costly penalties and miscues once again doomed the Browns.
Dallas 27 Houston 13

Dallas pulled it all together to pull out a convincing win over the red hot Houston Texans.
Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes to Roy Williams and the Cowboys' defense was sharp on the day.
Matt Schaub threw two interceptions and that was two too many.
Vikings 24 Lions 10

Brett Favre may finally be feeling his age on the field as his so-so performance didn't lose the game for the Vikings.
Adrian Peterson made the game his own with 160 yards rushing, including an 80-yard touchdown.
The Lions continue their losing ways with Shaun Hill being intercepted twice and Jahvid Best only rushing for 26 yards before leaving the game with a toe injury.
The Lions are too thin to lose any of their starters and now they're down Matthew Stafford and Best.
Philadelphia 28 Jacksonville 3

Michael Vick didn't do anything on Sunday but increase the trade interest in Kevin Kolb as Kolb now looks farther than ever from the starter's job.
Meanwhile the Jacksonville Jaguars didn't really score.
Vick threw for 291 yards and three touchdowns while David Garrard was brutalized by the Eagles defense.
It wasn't fun being a Jaguars fan today.
Colts 27 Broncos 13

Peyton Manning continued to prove his Week 1 woes were an aberration as he threw for 325 yards and three touchdowns in a victory over the Broncos.
Joseph Addai didn't get near the yardage he got last week, but it didn't matter.
The Broncos got an impressive performance out of Kyle Orton, who threw for more than 400 yards, but it just wasn't enough today as the Broncos' running game was practically non-existant.
Rams 30 Redskins 16

Sam Bradford got his first NFL win while both running games sputtered.
Neither of the Redskins running backs could amass more than 50 yards and the Rams running game wasn't much to write home about either.
However, the Rams made plays when it counted and they go home with the victory.
Arizona 24 Oakland 23

The Raiders took it down to the last second, but the field goal was wide right and the Cardinals escape with a one point victory.
Derek Anderson had a pretty decent day, two touchdowns and only one interception, while Beanie Wells ran for 75 yards on his first game back after arthroscopic surgery.
Even better, Anderson didn't get benched for a rookie and the Raiders kept the same quarterback in for the whole game.
Seattle 27 San Diego 20

The Seahawks continue to win while the Chargers continue to miss Vincent Jackson.
This is another game that came down to the last play but Phillip Rivers was intercepted on fourth down with only seconds to go.
The Chargers have a lot of work to do to get back to where they were a year ago while the sky appears to be the limit for the Seahawks.
Jets 31 Dolphins 23

Mark Sanchez and the Jets played one heck of a game versus the Dolphins and came out on top.
Sanchez threw for 256 yards and three touchdowns, which should silence a lot of his critics, at least for this week.
The Dolphins played tough, and had a chance to win the game at the end, but they just couldn't get the ball into the endzone on the last drive.
