Drew Brees breezes Saints past Vikings with solid game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:34 pm ET) Saints quarterback Drew Brees did not need to be his typically explosive self Sunday against the visiting Vikings. He merely required efficiency - and he was certainly efficient in their victory.

Brees carved up the Minnesota defense to the tune of 27 of 35 for 293 yards and two touchdowns. He started and ended hot. He opened the game by completing all five passes on a scoring drive that set the tone for the rest of the game, tossed a 34-yard touchdown pass to Josh Hill later in the first quarter and hit veteran wideout Marques Colston for an 18-yard TD early in the fourth.

Despite the two scoring drives in the first quarter, Brees did much of his damage after intermission, completing 12 of 16 for 140 yards and the touchdown. He and his Saints will come marching into Dallas for a nationally televised game next Sunday night.


Eddie Royal hauls in two scores in win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:34 pm ET) Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal emerged as a red-zone favorite of quarterback Philip Rivers Sunday, in a 22-10 win over the Bills in Week 3.

Royal, who had yet to score a touchdown this season, brought in both of Rivers' touchdown passes Sunday. He scored from 3 and 5 yards out, while finishing the game with four receptions on six targets for 42 yards.

The Chargers have spread the ball around a bunch early on this season, and Royal was the beneficiary Sunday. He has 12 receptions for 131 yards heading into Week 4 against the Jaguars.


Packers backups mostly held in check
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4:27 pm ET) The Packers backup pass catchers were mostly held in check Week 3.

Andrew Quarless was one of the few bright spots for Green Bay. He gained 43 yards on four catches, including a touchdown. He was targeted five times.

Jarrett Boykin received four targets, but only came up with one catch. He gained 11 yards. Davante Adams also gained 11 yards, and did so on two catches.

They'll take on the Bears Week 4. 


Andy Dalton catches touchdown in Week 3 win vs. Titans
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:27 pm ET) Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton went 15 for 23 for just 169 yards and an interception through the air Sunday but also caught an 18-yard touchdown pass in his team's 33-7 Week 3 win over the Titans.

Dalton's overall numbers were held in check with the Bengals opening up a big lead and shutting the Titans out until the fourth quarter. However, he made the play of the game in the first quarter, pitching the ball to Mohammed Sanu, who took a few steps to the right on an apparent sweep before lofting the ball to Dalton back across the field. Titans cornerback Blidi-Wreh Wilson had a play to make, either on the ball or on Dalton, but made neither, and Dalton motored toward the end zone and dove toward the pylon before the approaching defender could close.

Dalton also went 15 for 23 a week ago but managed to put together enough big plays to throw for 252 yards, averaging more than 10 yards per attempt. He'll get a week off with the team's upcoming bye before heading to New England in what should be a much tougher test in Week 5.


Malcolm Floyd goes deep for two receptions
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:27 pm ET) Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd caught just two passes Sunday, but he made them count in a 22-10 win over the Bills in Week 3.

Floyd brought in both of his passes for 49 yards, the two longest plays of the game for either team. He finished with two receptions on four targets for 98 yards.

Floyd has had an inconsistent role through three games, as he failed to catch a pass in Week 2. He has six receptions for 148 yards and one touchdown through three games, with the Chargers set to take on the Jaguars in Week 4. 


Eli Manning throws two touchdowns in Week 3 win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:25 pm ET) Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw a pair of touchdowns, and New York earned its first victory of the season during a 30-17 win Week 3 vs. Houston. Manning completed 21 of 28 passes for 234 yards and no touchdowns, finishing with a 123.2 quarterback rating.

He put New York up 7-0 after connecting with Victor Cruz on a 26-yard touchdown pass with 3:21 left in the second quarter. He then gave the Giants a 27-10 lead in the fourth quarter after connecting with Daniel Fells for a 9-yard touchdown with 9:25 left.

Manning almost had a lengthy touchdown pass late in the first quarter, but Cruz couldn't outrun the defense and was dragged down after a 61-yard gain. On the previous drive, Larry Donnell fumbled down inside the 5-yard line after catching a 6-yard pass from Manning.

Manning didn't throw an interception for the first time in eight games dating back to last season. The Giants are back in action Thursday at Washington.


Brian Hoyer good, but not good enough in Week 3
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:24 pm ET) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer did everything right Sunday against Baltimore - until the game was on the line.

Hoyer missed on his last three attempts, including a short throw over the middle that would have allowed his team to run out the clock. But he still finished 19 of 25 for 290 yards and a 4-yard scoring strike to Miles Austin in the back of the end zone with 13 seconds remaining in the third quarter.

His performance began strong and got better. He completed 6 of 7 for 85 yards in the first quarter, including a 43-yarder to speedster Travis Benjamin, and was 17 of 19 for 214 yards by the end of the third. His 71-yard bomb to Taylor Gabriel with nine minutes remaining in the game could have put his team firmly in control, but poor execution and a missed field goal wrecked that opportunity.

Hoyer and the Browns will have plenty of time to regroup - they are now on their bye week.


Keenan Allen silent in victory
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4:22 pm ET) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen played through a groin injury Sunday against the Bills, but didn't make much of an impact in the 22-10 win in Week 3.

Allen got the start but was targeted just twice in the passing game, good for just fifth-most on the team. He hauled in both of those passes thrown his way for just 17 yards, his lowest total since Week 2 of his rookie season.

Allen has struggled to make an impact through three games, hauling in just 12 passes for 109 yards. He will look for more success in Week 4 against the Jaguars. 


Randall Cobb can't get open Week 3
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4:21 pm ET) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb couldn't get open Week 3 against the Lions.

Cobb caught just three passes for 29 yards during the contest. He was targeted six times, which ranked second on the team. The Packers offense was held in check throughout the game, and no player really broke out. Cobb will look for more Week 4 against Chicago. 


Jordy Nelson held in check Week 3
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4:16 pm ET) Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson was held in check Week 3 against the Lions.

Nelson led the team in receiving yards and catches, but both figures were off his normal dominant numbers. Nelson hauled in five balls for 59 yards. He was also targeted a team-high seven times. The Lions did a solid job against Nelson most of the game, making it tough for Rodgers to get the ball to his best option. 

Nelson will look for more Week 4 against the Bears.
