By Simon Evans Sept 29 (Reuters) - The Seattle Seahawks extended their winning start to the season to a franchise record four games after a 23-20 comeback victory in overtime at the Houston Texans on Sunday while the New York Giants suffered a fourth straight loss with a miserable 31-7 defeat at Kansas City. The defending Super Bowl champions, the Baltimore Ravens also had a tough day with quarterback Joe Flacco throwing five interceptions in a 23-20 loss at Buffalo. ...
Interceptions played a big role during Sunday's slate of NFL action. If it wasn't Baltimore's Joe Flacco throwing five or Chicago's Jay Cutler throwing three, it was Arizona's Patrick Peterson and Seattle's Richard Sherman steering their teams toward victory with picks at crucial points of the game. Then there was the pair of flat-out entertaining interceptions that the New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks came up with after unbelievable deflections. First, check out the unbelievable interception that somehow ended up in the arms of Antrel Rolle. Shutdown Corner's own Anwar Richardson called it an "early play of the year" candidate" and it's hard to disagree given that the ball somehow went off Jamaal Charles' foot before caroming its way between Rolle and teammate Mark Herzlich. Then there was Seattle's first-half interception of Houston quarterback Matt Schaub, which touched four Seahawks defenders before landing in the arms of Earl Thomas . Seriously, it was a play that'd make most college volleyball teams awfully proud. So, which one did you like better? Rolle's physics-defying interception? Or Seattle's ballhawking, tip-drill teamwork? - - - Hit us up on Twitter @YShutdownCorner , email us at shutdown.corner@yahoo.com and "Like" Shutdown Corner on Facebook for NFL conversation 365 days a year, the way it should be.
New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle had 17 career interceptions entering today's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. None of those grabs were more spectacular than the magic he pulled off Sunday. Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith attempted a pass to running back Jamaal Charles, who bobbled the ball and lost control. Then in a series of events that would mystify illusionist David Blaine, Rolle eventually apprehended the ball. Here's the crazy sequence of events:
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Kansas City Chiefs right tackle Eric Fisher, the overall No. 1 draft pick last spring, is questionable to return to Sunday's game with the New York Giants with a head injury.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Cornerback Brandon Flowers, Kansas City's leader in the secondary, will be out for Sunday's game against the New York Giants.
The New York Giants are 0-3 and must go on the road to face the 3-0 Kansas City Chiefs. They’ll be doing so without at least two-fifths — and maybe three-fifths — of their offensive line. Center David Baas and right guard Chris Snee are officially out for the game. In addition, right tackle David Diehl is listed as doubtful with a thumb injury. [Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Don't wait, sign up today! ] The Giants have allowed 11 sacks this season, but seven came last week (and six in the first 17 minutes of play) against the Carolina Panthers. The Chiefs have an NFL-best 15 sacks, including six last week.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- This much is known: the New York Giants will have two reserve offensive lineman starting against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday with right guard Chris Snee (hip) and center David Baas (neck) ruled out on Friday.
COMMENTARY | Down and out. That's how the situation surrounding the 0-3 New York Giants has been described all week.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Giants are heading to Kansas City with the most inexperienced offensive line in Tom Coughlin's tenure as coach.
