NFL teams across the nation put on the pads, took out the playbooks and went to work, entertaining millions with what was a marvelous week in football. 

Tonight, we get a Monday Night spectacular. The New York Giants take on the St. Louis Rams in what should be a great game in an unlikely package. 

Both teams have been hit hard by injuries, leaving them depleted and seemingly destroyed for the next few weeks. However, there is still a lot to like about both squads. There is still enough talent on the field to satiate the hungriest football fan. 

The Rams come in with an offense that is threatening to explode. I have them winning what will be a very close game at MetLife Stadium. Prediction: Rams 27, NY Giants 24

Now we can take a look at the Sunday that was in the NFL. Here is a breakdown of all the games that kept you entertained while you swilled beer at your local pub.

The Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders met for the weekend's most underrated affair. Both teams are playing well in the early going, and should be noted. Here is a breakdown video of Sunday's highest scoring game. 


Injury bugs ran rampant across the NFL landscape this weekend. The Chiefs will struggle to find wins going forward as Jamaal Charles suffers a dramatic knee injury, scene here. 


The biggest storyline on Monday is the continued fantastic play of young Cam Newton. The Panthers rookie quarterback has been playing out of his mind, despite two losses to start the season. 

He looked absolutely poised against one of the toughest defenses in the league. Here is a look at the first scoring drive of the day. Newton lobs a perfect pass to Brandon LaFell. Newton ended the day with 432 yards thrown. 


The night ended with an exciting contest that included a miracle catch by Tony Gonzalez, a controversial hit by Dunta Robinson and another season altering injury to Michael Vick

The NFL's dream team was taken down by a Falcons squad that absolutely needed a win on Sunday. Here is a recap of all the action. 


Now we sit and wait for the last piece of good remaining this week. Savor Monday Night, folks. This much football action is now a week away. 

Never fear, we will be here breaking down all things football, making the wait seem painless. I can't see how the NFL can top a week like this one, but I am eager to see them try.
