Some thoughts and some numbers regarding Week 3 of the 2013 season and entering Monday night's game…
COMMENTARY | After three weeks of football in this young NFL season, the Washington Redskins' defense has allowed 98 points which, surprisingly, is the second most in the league. Their NFC East rivals, the New York Giants, have given up a league-worst 115 points. After three very poor performances this season, is Jim Haslett's defensive coordinator job in jeopardy?
COMMENTARY | What a difference a week can make.
COMMENTARY | On the eve of the NFL season, if someone had said a New York team would fall victim to woeful quarterback play, a questionable pass rush, no semblance of a running game, and a shaky offensive line, you'd likely shake your head and say, Well, that's the New York Jets.
COMMENTARY | New York Giants fans must have felt like the biggest losers on Sunday, September 22.
COMMENTARY | Following an 0-2 start, it doesn't get any easier for the New York Giants as the 2013 NFL season progresses.

They’d be returning at a critical juncture, as the offense has struggled mightily and the heat has been turned up on coordinator Todd Haley.

COMMENTARY | In one of the more surprising and shocking trades of recent memory, the Indianapolis Colts made a blockbuster trade by acquiring Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson, the No. 3 overall pick in last year's draft, for a 2014 first-round draft pick.
