The Newsroom reviews week three of the NFL with the main attraction of the Houston Texans falling to a rampant New England Patriots.
Patriots smash Texans
The Patriots crushed the Texans 27-0 in what was a match that the Texans had no answer for. The Patriots came out firing in the first quarter scoring 10 points, with the Texans pass rush defence failing to get through the Patriots offensive line, allowing the rookie quarterback J. Brissett to run in for a touch down. The Texans could not find a way back in to the game, turning the ball over too many times throughout the game.
Redskins shock the Giants
The Giants two-game winning streak came to an end, losing to arch-rival the Washington Redskins 29-27. The Giants posted a 12 point lead but was reduced when Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins threw two long range touchdown passes to DeSean Jackson and Jamison Crowder. It set up a thrilling finish with Dustin Hopkins kicking a 37-yard field-goal late in the fourth quarter to seal the win for the Redskins.
Denver Broncos too strong for Bengals
The Broncos remain undefeated this season after beating the Cincinnati Bengals 29-17 in an entertaining contest. The Bengals running game was dominant early with Jeremy Hill scoring two touchdowns. However the reigning Superbowl champions had a two point lead heading into the second half before quarterback Trevor Siemain threw two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to secure the win. – James Wardell
