Indianapolis slaughtered by New Orleans
The Colts were granted their worst defeat in the history of the franchise as they fell 62-7 to the Saints. This loss meant the seventh straight for Indy, a team that hasn’t found a way to deal with the absence of Peyton Manning, who will not be playing for the entire season, and who was replaced by Curtis Painter (the sixth overall pick from the 2009 NFL draft), who said that “We just didn’t play near well enough, we made a few too many mistakes in the beginning, and any time you’re playing a team as good as them, they’re going to make you pay. We just kind of got off to a rough start and you’ve got to credit them.”

Detroit with second straight loss
The Lions acquired their second straight defeat as they lost to the Falcons by 23-16, and are now 5-2, but in despite of this, they are still in playoff contention, though they need to pay attention to Matthew Stafford, who has started slowly the past two games and was also set for an MRI just after the match against Atlanta. Detroit is now headed to face the Broncos, a team that is looking better now that Tim Tebow is calling the shots instead of Kyle Orton.

Rodgers and Packers are 7-0
Aaron Rodgers had some big shoes to fill when he stepped in as the quarterback for the Packers after the departure of Brett Favre, but after 3 outstanding seasons as a starter and a championship ring thanks to Green Bay’s victory at Super Bowl XLV, he is still proving that he is as talented as Favre, and proof of that is the current 7-0 record from the Packers, including their win from Sunday by 33-27 over the Vikings, where Rodgers scored three touchdowns and prevented Tim Tebow from winning his first NFL start.

Steelers with victory over the Cardinals
Another quarterback that threw 3 touchdowns last night was Ben Roethlisberger, who helped the Steelers to their fifth victory of the season, this time over the Cardinals with a final score of 32-20. Big Ben also managed to throw the longest pass play in the history of the Pittsburgh franchise, a 95-yard pass that culminated in a touchdown by Mike Wallace, who is one of the current fastest receivers in the league. Now the Steelers are on their way to face a team with their same current record of 5-2 in the New Orleans Saints at week8, and it will be definitely interesting to see who is going to win the quarterbacks battle between Roethlisberger and Drew Brees.
