Bruce Carter scores touchdown for Dallas defense in Week 3
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:14 pm ET) Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter returned an interception 25 yards in the fourth quarter Sunday to score a key touchdown in his team's 34-31 win over the Rams in Week 3.

Carter put the Cowboys up 10 points before Rams scored a late touchdown by intercepting Austin Davis for the first time in the game. Cornerback Morris Claiborne added an interception on St. Louis' final offensive drive to seal the game for the Cowboys. Defensive lineman Henry Melton recovered a Rams fumble in Dallas territory late in the first half to help turn the tide after the defense surrendered 21 unanswered points to begin the game. The Cowboys defense faces a tough test in Week 4 when Drew Brees and the Saints come marching into town after a big win.


Matt Cassel has multiple broken bones
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6:13 pm ET) According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel doesn't just have turf toe, as initially reported, but multiple broken bones in his foot. He is sidelined indefinitely and could potentially miss the rest of the season.

Rookie Teddy Bridgewater, who replaced Cassel early in the second quarter Week 3 at New Orleans, figures to start for the Vikings going forward. Cassel was off to a shaky start this season with three touchdown passes compared to four interceptions.


Texans struggle to stop the run during Week 3 loss
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6:13 pm ET) The Texans defense had its worst performance of the season during a 30-17 loss Week 3 at N.Y. Giants. Not only did the Giants total three touchdowns and three field goals, but they finished with 419 yards, which included 176 rushing yards from Rashad Jennings.

The Texans did force a fumble down inside the 5-yard line as the Giants were driving for a score in the first half. They also got a sack from J.J. Watt, while linebacker Brian Cushing finished with a team-high 17 tackles (eight solo). Safety Kendrick Lewis had a team-high 11 solo tackles and finished with 12 total tackles and one forced fumble.

The Texans will look to rebound Week 4 vs. Buffalo.


Terrance West unimpressive in loss to Baltimore
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6:11 pm ET) Browns rookie running back Terrance West continued his steady drop in productivity Sunday against the visiting Ravens following a 100-yard game in Week 1 to launch his NFL career.

West managed just 36 yards in 12 carries, though he did bolt into the end zone from a yard out in the first quarter for his second score of the season. He added two catches for five yards.

His worst moment was a missed assignment that resulted in a sack of quarterback Brian Hoyer in the fourth quarter that played a big role in ruining a promising drive. West will have plenty of time to think about that one with the team on its bye week.


Russell Okung shakes off shoulder issue, makes quick return
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:10 pm ET) Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung returned to action after sustaining a shoulder injury late in the first half against the Broncos in Week 3. Okung was sent to the locker room for tests, but returned to the field for the team's first offensive drive in the third quarter.

T.Y. Hilton should be fine after injury scare
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6:10 pm ET) Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton received some good news after leaving Week 3 with an ankle injury.

After the game, head coach Chuck Pagano said Hilton's injury is not serious. Hilton hauled in five passes for 80 yards before leaving early against the Jaguars. With the team up big late, there was no need for Hilton to return after leaving with his injury. 

Hilton will take on the Titans next week if he can go. 


Darren Sproles held in check Sunday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6:09 pm ET) Eagles running back Darren Sproles put together a pedestrian performance in Week 3, a 37-34 win over Washington.  

After finding ways to produce in each of the team's first two games, Sproles was mostly silent Sunday. He rushed the ball just two times for 20 yards, while adding just 30 yards on three receptions. Sproles also lost his first fumble of the season, while being held out of the end zone for the first time.

Despite Sunday's subpar outing, Sproles still has 313 yards from scrimmage on 31 touches through three games. He will look to get back on track in Week 4 against the 49ers. 


Dan Bailey nails two field goals in Week 3 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:08 pm ET) Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey hit both of his field-goal attemts and all four of his extra-point attempts in his team's 34-31 win over the Rams in Week 3.

After the Rams jumped out to a 21-0 lead, Bailey was able to put his team within 11 points with a 29-yard field goal to end the first half. He hit from 40 yards out in the third quarter to put the Cowboys within one before the Cowboys took the lead in the fourth quarter and held on for the win. Bailey will kick at home in Week 4 when the Saints travel to Texas.


Colts backup runners do little Week 3
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6:07 pm ET) The Colts backup running backs did little Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Donte Moncrief had just one carry for 7 yards during the contest. Dan Herron gained 1 yard on one carry. They'll take on the Titans Week 4. 


LeSean McCoy can't find room in shootout
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6:06 pm ET) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had trouble finding much room to operate in a 37-34 win over Washington in Week 3.

McCoy rushed the ball 19 times, despite being forced to go to the locker room during the first half to be tested for a concussion. He was cleared and came right back to the game, but failed to make much of an impact. He rushed for just 22 yards in the game, and was held without a reception for the first time Week 3 of last season.

McCoy, last season's rushing leader, has failed to break out through three games. He heads into Week 4 against the 49ers with 175 yards on 60 carries with just one touchdown through three games.
