Washington 31, Philadelphia 6

Andy Reid is not long for the Eagles job. Robert Griffin III became only the second rookie to ever achieve a perfect quarterback rating in throwing four times as many touchdown passes as incompletions. He also tossed in 84 rushing yards for good measure. Yeah, RGIII is pretty good.

 

Tampa Bay 27, Carolina 21 (OT)

Josh Freeman hooked up with Vincent Jackson for a touchdown with 20 seconds to play in regulation, and then hit Jackson again for a two point conversion to send the game to overtime. On the first drive of the extra period, Dallas Clark’s 15 yard touchdown capped off an 80 yard drive and give Tampa Bay the miracle win. Carolina had led 21-10 with less than five minutes to go.

Schaub finished with five touchdown passes, while Johnson had 273 receiving yards to help Houston, 15.5 point favorites coming in, avoid the massive upset.
