Eagles defeat Redskins in 37-34 shootout


Rich Shultz/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA, PA.) -- The Philadelphia Eagles moved to 3-0 with a 37-34 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles tossed three touchdowns, including two to rookie wide reciever Jordan Matthews.

The game was full of hard hits, injuries and even a brawl as the teams battled back and forth. 

Washington receiver DeSean Jackson, a former Eagle, drew significant attention as he was a frequent target of Philadelphia defenders. Eagles running back LeSean McCoy breifly left the game after a stunning hit by Washington defensive back David Amerson.

Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall said after the game he believes he suffered a torn Achilles.

After an interception by Washington cornerback Bahaud Breeland (that was later overturned), Foles took an earth shattering hit from Chris Baker.  Foles lay on the ground for several minutes as his teammates, including tackle Jason Peters, came to his defense and a brawl ensued on the Redskins sideline.  Several punches were thrown; both Baker and Peters were ejected.

NFL via Getty Images(EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.) -- The New York Giants earned their first win of the season defeating the Houston Texans 30-17 on Sunday.

The Giants took advantage of three Ryan Fitzpatrick interceptions and methodically moved the ball against the Texans all day.

Eli Manning returned to form, throwing for 234 yards and two touchdowns. 

Victor Cruz capitalized on the Texans defense hauling in five passes, including a 61 yard reception and his first touchdown which gave the Giants a 7-0 lead in the second quarter.

Despite the stifling front seven of the Texans, led by J.J. Watt, Giants running back Rashad Jennings gashed Houston all day running for 176 yards and a touchdown.

The day wasn't a complete cakewalk as the Giants offense continued to show the struggles that had plagued them so far this season.  The team's first field goal attempt of the season came in the first quarter. Zak Deossie's snap was botched and recoved by kicker Josh Brown after a 29 yard loss. The Giants remained strong and found thier groove as the day went on.

New York has a quick turnaround as they travel to face their division rival Washington Redskins on Thursday night.

Top Ranked Seminoles Survive in OT


Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) -- Without suspended quarterback Jameis Winston, the top-ranked Florida State Seminoles got some late game heroics from backup Sean Maguire. The sophomore, making his first career start, led a game-tying drive in the fourth quarter before helping the Seminoles beat No. 22 Clemson 23-17.

Karlos Williams rushed into the endzone from 12 yards out to cap off the comeback, but it was Maguire's 74-yard strike to Rashad Greene that tied the game at 17-17 with six minutes left in regulation.

That touchdown was the high point in an up-and-down game for the sophomore signal caller. Maguire threw a pair of interceptions prior to the score, but did rack up 305 total passing yards. Neither team led by more than a touchdown, but the Tigers (1-2) did score 10 unanswered points in the first half to lead 10-3. 

Florida State did get the ball back late in the fourth, but opted to play for overtime. The Seminoles defense stood tall, stopping Adam Choice on fourth down to give FSU possession. Two plays later, Williams would score to end the game.

Indiana Knocks Off (18) Missouri


ThinkStock(COLUMBIA, Mo.) -- D'Angelo Roberts' three-yard touchdown run with 22 seconds remaining put Indiana ahead 31-27, giving the Hoosiers (2-1) a win over 18th-ranked Missouri on Saturday. It was just the fourth win over an AP-ranked non-conference team in program history.

The back-and-forth affair so neither team hold more than a one-score advantage. The Tigers (3-1) scored 10 straight points in the second half, taking a 27-24 lead on Andrew Baggett's 40-yard field goal. However, the reigning Southeastern Conference West champions couldn't hold off the offense of the Hoosiers.

Indiana went 75-yards in just six plays to pull off the upset. Tevin Coleman rushed for 132 total yards, including a 44-yard scamper that setup the winning score. 

"It was a really big win," said Coleman, who missed the final 20 minutes of the first half with cramps. "We came out here with fire. We played until the end."

Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk tossed for 326 yards and two scores to pace the Tigers while Russell Hansbrough ran for 119 yards.

Mississippi State Outlasts (8) LSU


Football Texture/iStockphoto(BATON ROUGE, La.) -- Mississippi State jumped out to a 17-0 lead over eighth ranked Louisiana State University (LSU), but had to hold on in the fourth quarter for a 34-29 win. It was the Bulldogs first victory over LSU since 1999, and their first in Baton Rouge since 1991.

"I probably aged seven to 10 years in the final three minutes of the game," said Mississippi State (4-0) head coach Dan Mullen. "We are trying to build a program and I'll take it. I guess everybody can now write now I have beaten LSU and Alabama once during my career."

Quarterback Dak Prescott, a Louisiana native, controlled tempo through the first three quarters. His 56-yard touchdown run put the Bulldogs up 24-10, while his pass to Jameon Lewis made it a 21-point Bulldog lead.

Trailing 31-10 heading into the fourth quarter, LSU (3-1) stormed back to score 19 unanswered points and threaten to deny the Bulldogs of an upset. Brandon Harris found Malachi Dupre for a 31 yard touchdown pass that made it a 34-22 ballgame with less than two minutes remaining. The Tigers then recovered an onside kick setting up another Harris-Dupre connection to close the gap to five.

LSU got one last chance, holding possession in the final seconds. A last-ditch heave to the endzone was picked off by Will Redmond. Prescott finished the game with 268 passing yards and a pair touchdowns, adding another score on the ground.
