Derek Anderson plays well in relief


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:31 am ET) Panthers quarterback Derek Anderson relieved Cam Newton in the fourth quarter of the Week 3 loss to the Steelers and played well. Anderson completed 5 of 6 throws for 80 yards, including a 35-yard touchdown to rookie wideout Kelvin Benjamin.

Anderson will go back to the bench for Week 4 at Baltimore.


Ron Rivera: I removed Cam Newton to protect him


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:03 am ET) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he pulled quarterback Cam Newton in the fourth quarter of the 37-19 loss to Pittsburgh to protect him. The Steelers sacked Newton three times and hit him at least three other times.

"We can't do anything unless we protect the quarterback," Rivera told reporters, adding he didn't want to see Newton get hit any more.


Ben Roethlisberger ends touchdown drought


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who had failed to lead a touchdown drive in more than eight quarters, threw for 196 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's 37-19 win at Carolina. Roethlisberger completed 22 of 30 throws and did not commit a turnover.

As usual, Big Ben's favorite target was Antonio Brown. The duo hooked up 10 times for 90 yards, including a pair of 7-yard scores in the third quarter. The first was vintage Big Ben as he pump faked, scrambled out of the pocket and flipped it to the back corner of the end zone where Brown tapped his feet in.

Roethlisberger will try to keep it going Week 4 against the Buccaneers.


Cam Newton just so-so on SNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton completed 24 of 35 passes for 250 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions in Sunday night's loss to the Steelers. Newton ran twice for 7 yards and lost a fumble on a sack.

Newton was under heavy pressure as his line couldn't hold up against the Steelers' rush. He took three sacks and was seen walking gingerly at times. Newton's highlight came early in the fourth quarter when he found tight end Greg Olsen for a 37-yard touchdown.

Newton didn't finish the game because it was a blowout. He'll visit the Ravens in Week 4.


Ryan Tannehill has another disappointing outing in Week 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had another disappointing performance in Week 3 at home against the Chiefs.

The offensive line struggled to protect Tannehill, as he was taken for five sacks on the afternoon. Tannehill failed to complete half of his passes, compiling only 205 yards through the air while completing 21 of 43 attempts. Tannehill found an open Brian Hartline on a playaction for a 1-yard score early in the third quarter -- his only touchdown of the game. He finished without an interception and rushed for nine yards in a 31-15 defeat.

Tannehill has yet to crack the 250-yard mark through three weeks. He will look to bounce back in London against the Raiders in Week 4.


Alex Smith throws three touchdowns in comfortable win over Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith found the end zone three times in a Week 3 win over the Dolphins in Miami on Sunday.

Smith hooked up with Travis Kelce for a 20-yards score in the second quarter. In the second half, he found Joe McKnight for scored of 11 and 4 yards. Smith did just enough to manage the game for the Chiefs, completing 19 of 25 passes for 186 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions in a 34-15 victory.

Through three weeks, Smith has compiled 643 passing yards to go along with a 4-to-3 touchdown-to-interception ratio. He will look to build off this performance heading into a Week 5 Monday night matchup at home against New England.


Russell Wilson scores twice in Super Bowl rematch


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson found the end zone twice and did just enough to manage an overtime victory over the Broncos at home in Week 3.

Wilson fired a 39-yard touchdown pass to Ricardo Lockette and found Marshawn Lynch for a 5-yard strike -- all in the second quarter. He was picked off by Chris Harris in the fourth quarter for his only blemish of the afternoon. He bounced back and led his team to a 13-play, 80-yard drive which resulted in a game-winning touchdown run from Lynch in overtime.

Wilson completed 24 of 34 passes for 258 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception. He was sacked three times. He rushed for 40 yards on nine carries.

Seattle is on a bye before returning to action in Week 5 at Washington.


Peyton Manning cracks 300-yard mark in overtime loss to Seattle


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning surpassed the 300-yard mark in a Week 3 overtime loss to the Seahawks in Seattle.

Manning scored on a 3-yard shovel pass to Julius Thomas in the third quarter but was intercepted late in the fourth quarter by Kam Chancellor. He bounced back and orchestrated a six-play, 80-yard drive capped off by a 26-yard strike in the end zone to Jacob Tamme with 41 seconds remaining to send the game to overtime.

Manning compiled 303 yards through the air while completing 31 of 49 passes. He added two touchdowns and one interception, registering a 85.7 passer rating. He was sacked once in a 26-20 defeat.

Manning has 814 passing yards, with eight touchdowns and one interception through three weeks. The Broncos will have a bye before hosting the Cardinals in Week 5.


Late interception costs Derek Carr


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/2014) The Raiders had a conservative game plan on the road against a Patriots defense that proved to be stout through the first two weeks, and rookie quarterback Derek Carr once again completed more than 60 percent (21 for 34) of his passes as a result. Of course, he also threw for just 174 yards and couldn't get the Raiders in the end zone in a 16-9 loss.

The closest he came was on the team's final drive of the game, when running back Darren McFadden had what looked like a game-tying 6-yard touchdown run with about a minute to go, but the play was reversed on a holding call. Carr threw an interception on the very next play.

After throwing two touchdown passes to no interceptions in his first game, he has thrown one touchdown pass to three interceptions in his last two. He'll look to reverse the trend Week 4 against the Dolphins.


Drew Stanton leads second-half comeback Week 3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton threw two second-half touchdown passes to rookie receiver John Brown, leading Arizona to a 23-14 comeback win Week 3 vs. San Francisco. Stanton completed 18 of 33 passes for 244 yards, while rushing for 16 yards on six carries.

Stanton didn't have a very productive first half, completing just 8 of 17 passes for 83 yards as Arizona trailed 14-6 by the break. Stanton then threw touchdown passes of 21 and 24 yards to Brown in the third quarter, and the Cardinals never looked back.

Stanton came close to throwing a third touchdown to Brown in the second half, but he overthrew Brown, who had run past his defender down the left sideline. It would have resulted in a 45-yard touchdown had Stanton hit Brown in stride. 

The Cardinals head into a bye Week 4 before returning to play Week 5 at Denver. If Carson Palmer (shoulder) is healthy, he is expected to resume the starting quarterback job.


Colin Kaepernick close to 80 percent completion rate in loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick completed 78.4 percent of his passes Sunday at Arizona, but San Francisco was shutout in the second half and the Cardinals rallied for a 23-14 win. Kaepernick completed 29 of 37 passes for 245 yards and one touchdown, while rushing for a team-high 54 yards on 13 carries.

Kaepernick had a very productive first half, completing 14 of 18 passes for 116 yards. He threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree on the team's opening drive. Kaepernick had 45 rushing yards by halftime.

He didn't throw an interception or lose a fumble, and he was sacked just once in the loss. The 49ers are back in action Week 4 vs. Philadelphia.


Steelers reveal Week 3 inactives


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Steelers declared running back Dri Archer (ankle), wideout Martavis Bryant (shoulder), quarterback Landry Jones, nose tackle Dan McCullers, offensive lineman Wesley Johnson, guard Ramon Foster (ankle) and cornerback B.W. Webb inactive for Sunday night's game in Carolina.

Panthers announce Week 3 inactives


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Panthers declared running back DeAngelo Williams (thigh), receiver Jerricho Cotchery (thigh), running back Fozzy Whittaker (thigh), quarterback Joe Webb, safety Tre Boston, guard Andrew Norwell and offensive tackle David Foucault inactive for Sunday night's game against Pittsburgh.

Blake Bortles gets his shot Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles got his shot Week 3 against the Colts. 

Bortles entered in the third quarter, and provided the offense with some spark. It didn't come at first, though. Bortles was able to lead the team to a field goal in his second drive, but threw his first interception on the next drive. He would toss his first touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. Bortles found Allen Hurns on a 63 yard reception for the score. He would throw another interception, which would be returned for a touchdown, but bounced back with another score before the game ended. 

Bortles finished 14 of 24, with 233 yards. He threw two touchdowns and two interceptions. After the game, it was announced Bortles would be the starter Week 4 against the Chargers. 


Chad Henne removed after struggling Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne was pulled in favor of Blake Bortles Week 3.

Henne completed 4 of 7 passes for 33 yards. He averaged just 4.7 yards per attempt. He did not throw any touchdowns or interceptions. With the team down 30-0 at the half, Henne was benched in favor of Bortles. 

Henne will take on a backup role Week 4 against the Chargers. 


Austin Davis racks up 327 yards, three TDs in Week 3 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Rams quarterback Austin Davis completed 30 of his 42 pass attempts for 327 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in his team's 34-31 loss to the Cowboys in Week 3.

Davis played very well in the first three quarters, helping take the Rams to a 21-0 lead in the first half and mantaining a one-point lead heading into the fourth after the Rams defense started to struggle. However, the Cowboys took the lead in the fourth and picked off Davis for the first time in the game, returning the interception for a touchdown. After he threw his third touchdown of the day, Davis was unable to lead his team on a game-winning drive, throwing his second interception.

Davis, who drew the start despite former starter Shaun Hill being active Sunday, may have done enough to remain the starter heading into the team's Week 4 bye. The Rams face the Eagles in Week 5.


Matt Cassel has multiple broken bones


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/2014) 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.


Teddy Bridgewater not bad in debut


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/2014) Entering the game early in the second quarter after starter Matt Cassel left with multiple broken bones in his foot, rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater looked plenty competent in his NFL debut Week 3 at New Orleans. He couldn't get the Vikings in the end zone, but he led them to two field goals in six series, including his first. Of the other four series, three ended in punts. The fourth marked the end of the first half.

Though Bridgewater wasn't bad throwing the ball, completing 12 of 20 passes for 150 yards, his mobility did the most to distinguish him from Cassel. He ran six times for 27 yards. Only one of those carries came in the second half, but again, the Vikings didn't possess the ball enough for him to have many more. His yards per carry would have been better if he didn't kneel the ball twice to end the first half.

"I thought he was very composed. I didn't see any panic," coach Mike Zimmer said of the rookie, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. "I believe that he's going to be pretty good."

With Cassel sidelined for an extended period (and potentially the season), Bridgewater has a chance to make a name for himself over the next several weeks, beginning Week 4 against the Falcons.


Matt Hasselbeck gets some action Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Colts quarterback Matt Hasselbeck got some action Week 3 against the Jaguars.

With the team up by a significant margin, Hasselbeck saw some time late. He completed 2 of his 4 attempts for 20 yards. He also knelt down once, picking up -1 rushing yards. 

Hasselbeck will take on the Titans Week 4. 


Nick Foles shows toughness with another 300-yard game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles put together another strong stat line Sunday, in a 37-34 win over Washington in Week 3.  

Foles topped the 300-yard mark for the third straight game to open the season, as he racked up 325 yards. He completed 27 of 41 passes in the game, his highest completion percentage of the season, while tossing three touchdowns without an interception.

Foles took a beating in this game, and appeared to play through a couple of injuries. He should be healthy for Week 4 against the 49ers, and he carries a 60.9 completion percentage and 978 passing yards into next Sunday's game.  


Andrew Luck dominates Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck turned in a phenomenal performance Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Luck completed 31 of 39 passes for 370 yards and four touchdowns. Luck also had three rushes for 15 yards during the game. Luck had total command during the game. He was able to pick up two of his biggest completions after drawing the defense offsides. The Colts declined the penalty both times. Luck was also a beneficiary of the team's shaky run game. On Luck's final touchdown, the team attempted two runs at the 1 yard line, but couldn't convert.

Luck will look to keep it up Week 4 against the Titans.


Tony Romo throws two touchdowns in Week 3 win vs. Rams


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo lead his team to a 34-31 win on the road in Week 3, completing 18 of 23 passes for 217 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Rams while also adding 14 yards on three rushes.

Romo brought the Cowboys back from a big 21-0 first-half deficit to move the Cowboys to 2-1. He hit Dez Bryant for a 68-yard touchdown in the third quarter on a play where it appeared the St. Louis defense forgot to cover the star receiver. Romo then connected with a wide-open Terrance Williams in the red zone in the fourth quarter, with the receiver waltzing into the end zone.

Despite the low yardage total, Romo turned in by far his best outing of the season Sunday, completing more than 78 percent of his passes and posting a 116.8 quarterback rating. He'll look to keep the offense rolling in the team's Week 4 matchup with the Saints at home.


Justin Forsett saves his Sunday with big second half


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett was overshadowed in the first half by rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro in Cleveland on Sunday. But he made his presence felt down the stretch.

Forsett was held to just nine yards on five atempts before intermission, but got rolling with a 21-yard run off a flip left to the Cleveland 1 to set up a touchdown. He added successive carries of 23 and 10 yards midway through the fourth quarter and finished with 11 tries for 63 yards. He averaged nine yards per carry in the second half.

His next action is slated for Week 4 against Carolina.


Teddy Bridgewater worth picking up for Week 4 bye


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/2014) The Vikings turned to Teddy Bridgewater in their Week 3 game after starter Matt Cassel hurt his foot, and he wasn't too bad. He completed 12 of 20 passes for 150 yards and ran for 27 yards and, most importantly, didn't turn the ball over. 

A lot of good quarterbacks are on bye in Week 4 including Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson. If you find yourself caught off guard and in need of a passer, Bridgewater should fit the bill. He's got a positive matchup against the Falcons at home and will have to throw a bunch. In time I expect Bridgewater to be an effective passer with good players to throw to. Consider him among your waiver claims in the coming week. 


Kirk Cousins tops 400 yards, three scores in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins put together a huge performance in his first start of the season in Week 3, but he just feel short in a 37-34 loss to the Eagles.

Cousins led the team on five scoring drives in the game, and put together one of the most productive single-game performances in team history. Cousins passed for 427 yards in the game, the fourth-highest total in Redskins history. He completed 30 of 48 passes and racked up three touchdowns, but also threw a costly interception mid-way through the fourth quarter, his first of the season.

Cousins has impressed through his first two games, after taking over in relief last week. He has passed for 677 yards while completing 52 of 81 passes, with five touchdowns and one turnover. He will look for more success in Week 4 against the Giants, set for Thursday.
