They're breathing easier in New Jersey Womens Chidobe Awuzie Jersey , Seattle, and the Motor City, what happens when your hapless, helpless and hopeless football teams suddenly turn nasty, effective and victorious.Most shocking, no doubt, was what the Bills did to the Vikings . After being the brunt of so many jokes the last two weeks following inept showings, then exacerbating it by tweeting an image of their helmet traveling to meet the Vikings' helmet — in Wisconsin — the Bills dominated in Minnesota. To boot, they were 16-point underdogs, making them the sixth team in the last 81 games with such a spread to pull off an upset.Where did that come from?Well, cynics will say the Vikings were coming off that emotional tie with Green Bay and face the NFL's most powerful squad in a short week when they host the Rams on Thursday night. The folks in Buffalo will tell you the Bills, who broke a 17-season drought of playoff appearances last winter, aren't as bad as they've looked."No one thought that we were going to come in here and play the way that we did, except the people in this locker room now," offensive tackle Dion Dawkins said, and he was right, particularly about the oddsmakers. "We came into the game fueled and ready to play."Say what you will about their forgettable first two outings, the Bills proved a lot Sunday. A team in turmoil, missing its best offensive player in injured running back LeSean McCoy, seemingly a sieve on defense, manhandled one of the Super Bowl favorites. With a raw rookie quarterback, too."We really don't really pay attention to what people think about us," linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said. "It's all about internal belief and confidence. If you listen to outside noise, we'd never win a game because nobody respects Buffalo at all. We have to continue to go out and earn that respect."Eli Manning has earned plenty of respect — and two Super Bowl rings — in a borderline Hall of Fame career. What he's earned the last year or so has been doubters that he had anything left.At Houston, he showed when given any sort of protection by the Giants, he can be productive and a winner. Manning was besieged in the first two defeats, either sacked or hit or pressured so much he barely got the snap before he was inundated. Against the Texans http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/geoff-swaim-jersey , and with 2015 first-round draft pick Ereck Flowers wisely benched at right tackle, Manning had some of the best numbers of his career: 25 for 29 for 297 yards and two touchdowns. He connected with nine receivers."I thought we kind of condensed the offense a little bit and made sure guys knew what they were doing," said Manning, pointing out without saying as much that the Giants were slow to react in losses to Jacksonville and Dallas. "Plays that they knew, they were playing fast, the offensive line was playing fast and we have good players, just let them go play. Let's not try to be perfect and trick or do too much. Let our guys go win, because we got good athletes."Seattle once had as talented a roster as any team, winning one Super Bowl that should have been two, and dominating the NFC West. With defections, injuries and retirements, though, these Seahawks need to succeed with guile, grit and coaching acumen.In their first home game, the Seahawks showed they still have a huge advantage at CenturyLink Field, especially when they get going quickly. The Cowboys, coming off a masterful manhandling of the Giants last weekend, ran into a buzzsaw.The 24-13 whooping the Seahawks put on the Cowboys was reminiscent of past Pete Carroll teams. They played with an edge that has marked his squads since his Southern Cal days."We were trying to get to our formula, and we just didn't get started well in the first couple games," Carroll said. "But this is how we want to play. "The day of relief was completed Sunday night when the Lions stunned the Patriots 26-10 as Matt Patricia got his first victory as a head coach — besting his boss while he was leading the New England defense, Bill Belichick.Detroit fans believed their team's prospects heading into 2018 were solid in a tough division. Then they fell flat in the opener against the Jets — yes, the Jets won at Ford Field and the Patriots lost. Last week, the Lions lost at San Francisco.But now, a sigh of relief that could be felt along all the Great Lakes, and a further belief that Detroit can compete in an NFC North where the Vikings and Packers have struggled, too, and the Bears lead at 2-1.Followers of the Bills Authentic Ezekiel Elliott Jersey , Giants, Seahawks and Lions also can take comfort in knowing there are three 0-3 teams out there: the Raiders, Texans and Cardinals. They might even feel some empathy for fans in Oakland, Houston and Arizona.What they’re saying about the (1-1) Dallas Cowboys heading into week 3 in the NFL It’s week three in the NFL, the Cowboys have played two very different games. There was the 16-8 sloppy loss to the Panthers and a 20-13 domination win over the Giants. So, what are the talking heads saying about these Dallas Cowboys? Whether it’s the mainstream media, local media, or the next opponent’s media, we’ll cover it. We’ll take a look in every which way as we review what everyone is saying about this team.Giants.com sideline staff: “Cowboys’ secondary plays excellent” in shutting down Giants weaponsThe stats are not pretty for the Giants offense, 32 plays and 79 yards in the first half. They ran 37 plays for 164 yards in the second-half but it was too little and far too late. Of five drives in the second-half, the Giants ended two of them for a combined -10 yards and a turnover. The Cowboys defense played about as well as you could imagine. This was the receiving chart for the Giants’ playmakers:PlayerTargetsCatchesYardsTDThe Cowboys will take that stat line every week, they pretty much had their way with these receivers but that will happen when you put six sacks on the quarterback.Rick Gosselin of Sportsday DFW: Other NFL quarterbacks may pad the stats but Dak Prescott protects the footballThat’s a pretty good point to make but it reminds me of our friend Landon McCool, on his Locked On Cowboys show from Monday. See, he says that we have to stop comparing Prescott to prolific passers that he’s not. Stop talking about how he’s not Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, or even Carson Wentz. Dak’s game is different and though 16 of 25 for 160 yards and a touchdown are quite pedestrian in this league, how can anyone say he had a bad game? Prescott and the offense did have a lull in the middle of the game. Yet, they came back with a 14-play, 82-yard drive that took eight and a half minutes off the clock and scored a touchdown. It put the Giants to bed and won the football game. Cowboys Twitter: Is this now a great defensive team where the offense just does enough to win?Out of the eight real offensive possessions the Cowboys had, four of them ended with points. The Cowboys offense had a hot start, scoring 10 points on their first two drives, but then they iced themselves down with three minutes to go in the first quarter. They didn’t get going again until the third quarter and there best drive was in the aforementioned 14-play drive in the fourth quarter. You look at the Cowboys offensive numbers and you feel like this can’t be their identity all season long.The Cowboys offense is still very much a “work-in-progress” but it’s getting better. The coaches now must make sure they don’t revert and keep using their offensive weapons to the best of their abilities and much more consistently too.Mike Vorel of Seattle Times: Seahawks line will be tested because Cowboys defense is really good led by DeMarcus LawrenceThe Cowboys defense has faced two sub-par offensive lines in each of the last two weeks and now they get a third one. Whether it’s injuries or just poor play, every team in the NFL is looking for better offensive linemen because there isn’t a surplus of them. The Seahawks have a tough time protecting Russell Wilson and it was evident against the Bears on Monday Night Football. As good as the Cowboys pass rush is, they still have to contain Wilson because he’s just so great at buying time in the pocket. These two teams are very comparable on offense in terms of skill position talent. Both the Seahawks and Cowboys aren’t sure what they have at receiver just yet but Seattle’s dealing with injuries to Doug Baldwin. It will be tough to beat these Seahawks at home but the Cowboys have the defense to do it.
