The 3rd Week of 2009 NFL action had us all on the edge of our seats this Sunday. Brett Favre pulled out some late game heroics to prove he is still a more than capable QB. The Detroit Lions beat out the Washington Redskins to earn their first win since December of 2007. The New England Patriots were able to redeem themselves after a dismal week 2 with a win over Matt Ryan and Atlanta Falcons. The Colts, Broncos, Saints, Ravens, Giants, Jets, and Vikings have all posted undefeated records thus far. Scores are listed below.
