1st Down- Week 4

1st Down is a weekly recap of all the NFL action

27 New England 21 Baltimore: Don't ask Ray Lewis what he thinks of the roughing the passer penalties. Or you will get a response like this. "Both of the drives they got touchdowns on – personal fouls that kept the drives going. That’s embarrassing to our game. Fine me, do whatever you please. I’m not speaking against anybody. It’s embarrassing, for them to treat one person on the football field different than everybody else." New England did score two touchdown's that were helped out by two roughing the passer calls. Baltimore's offensive line was a disappointment all day, allowing pressure to get to Joe Flacco forcing him to throw bad passes.

37 Jacksonville 17 Tennessee: What did I say about Kerry Collins at the beginning of the season? I said Collins has never put together back-to-back good seasons. And it showed against Jacksonville. Collins threw two interceptions and just one touchdown. Tennessee is now 0-4 and Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher is sticking with Collins as of right now.

35 San Francisco 0 St. Louis: Sorry Rams but you have now lost 14 straight games. San Francisco pulled the trifecta yesterday scoring on Special Teams, Defense, and on offense. Both the defense and offense scored twice. Patrick "Bam Bam" Willis returned a Kyle Boller interception for a touchdown and Ray McDonald picked up a Rams fumble for a touchdown. Vernon Davis caught a touchdown pass in the game, his third in two weeks.

17 Denver 10 Dallas: Denver is now 4-0 after a come-from-behind victory over the Dallas Cowboys. with the Broncos losing 10-7 in the fourth quarter, Kyle Neckbeard Orton threw a 51-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall to give Denver the lead while making one Eagles fan very happy. Tony Romo drove Dallas down into goal range with time running off but had both his 3rd and 4th down passes deflected away to give Denver the victory. I know everyone has said how mediocre Denver's wins have been, but you have to give them credit for winning this game.

24 New Orleans 10 New York Jets: Wait! Don't build your Mark Sanchez statues yet. Sanchez looked like a rooking against the Saints throwing a interception that was ran back for a touchdown and fumbling in the end zone which lead to another Saints touchdown. Drew Brees didn't even throw a touchdown pass in the game and New Orleans still won. Old Rex Ryan was so cocky after yesterdays game, “The Saints outplayed us today,” Ryan said. “They forced a lot of turnovers and scored with them. You’ve got to give them a lot of credit. They ran the ball pretty effectively against us as well.”

34 Indianapolis 17 Seattle: Peyton Manning torched the Seattle defense for 353 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. It's the first time Manning has topped over 300 yards in four consecutive games. Injuries have once again decimated Seattle. Matt Hasselbeck and Walter Jones were both sat out of the game and Seneca Wallace couldn't do enough to help Seattle avoid a third straight defeat.

23 Cincinnati 20 Cleveland, Overtime: This game had a bizarre ending. After Carson Palmer threw a game-tieing touchdown pass to Chad Ochocinco, Cleveland blocked the extra point and sent the game to overtime. The game looked like it was going to end in a tie, until Shayne Graham kicked a game-winning field goal for the Bengals with :3 seconds left on the clock.

38 Pittsburgh 28 San Diego: Poor Chargers, their defense probably couldn't have stopped the 49ers yesterday. The Chargers defense gave up 497 net yards in the game, including 320 passing yards. Phillip Rivers and the Chargers offense made the game interesting at the end, but the defense couldn't stop the Pittsburgh offense when they needed to.
