National Fail League: The biggest flops from Week 3
Another NFL Sunday is in the books. And while plenty of teams had reason to celebrate, there were just as many people around football that would love a mulligan.
By now, you've seen the highlights. But here's where you'll find the lowlights -- one last look back at the week's biggest fails before we turn the page to Week 4.
So without further ado: Welcome to the National Fail League, Week 3 edition.
The Jets don't need Ryan Fitzpatrick to break any records in order to compete this season. They simply need him to limit turnovers and put his receivers in positions to make plays. On Sunday, he did... the opposite of that.
Not one, not two, but six interceptions landed in the arms of Chiefs defenders, and New York blew its chances to emerge from the pack and place themselves a game behind New England in the AFC East.
Odell Beckham Jr.
Beckham-versus-Norman II ended in the cornerback's favor once again during Week 3's Redskins-Giants matchup, but it wasn't the only L caught by Beckham on Sunday.
Getting topped by one of the game's best corners is understandable. But getting into a fight with a field-goal kicking net and losing? C'mon, man.
It was a long afternoon for the San Francisco 49ers, and if they go to much longer without a serious upgrade at the quarterback position, there are surely more to come.
What was intended to be a simple short-yardage pass to running back Shaun Draughn turned into the blooper of the week when Blaine Gabbert fired a pass directly into his helmet. Coupled with getting shoved to the ground after taking a football to the face, it was a play both players would like to forget.
One word: How?
In Orchard Park, the Buffalo Bills easily handled Carson Palmer and the Arizona Cardinals to the tune of a 33-18 beating. Carson Palmer couldn't find the end zone, and it wasn't until garbage time that Arizona began to gain meaningful yardage.
The Cardinals, like Buffalo, are now 1-2.
The Buccaneers' defense
Entering play on Sunday, the Los Angeles Rams had scored a total of zero touchdowns over their first two games. Allowing 71 combined points over their first two games, Tampa Bay's defense seemed like it would offer plenty of opportunity for LA to finally get on the board.
And that they did.
Four touchdowns later, the Rams scored 23 more points than they did in their first two games combined, making a mockery of the Tampa Bay defensive corps and improving their record to 2-1 -- good for a first-place tie with Seattle in the NFC West.
