Chicago Bears hold on to beat sloppy Jets 27-19 (NBC on Yahoo Sports) ( today ) Courtesy of
If the Bears left California after their win over the San Francisco 49ers feeling as though they might have found some sense of identity, they left New Jersey with a 27-19 win over the New York Jets feeling that they have solidified something in their character. It’s not a sexy self-image. Maybe it’s a distant echo of the self-proclaimed “Grabowskis” of Mike Ditka. “This is a scrappy team,” said Lance Briggs, who has seen many iterations of Bears teams over his 12 Chicago seasons. “Scrappy. Extremely scrappy. “Every game has its moments, and critical situations arose. Offensively we had a third-and-short, and Matt Forte extended the drive and killed some time. For us defensively, we were down to a moment where it was win or possible tie, maybe overtime and somebody has to make a play. “Tonight there were moments when this could have gone either way. But this ... I’m excited about what this team is becoming.” [MORE BEARS:  Postgame Live: Reaction to Bears' win over New York Jets ] This much at least was clear after Monday night’s game against the Jets: The Bears are 2-1, and maybe that’s all that ultimately matters. In a year in which only five of 32 teams are undefeated or winless — last year there were 13 without either a win or a loss at this point — that counts for something. A truly dominant team has yet to present itself, and only the 3-0 Arizona Cardinals, Philadelphia Eagles and Cincinnati Bengals have done more in the first three weeks of the 2014 season than the Bears. “How does this game feel?” said guard Kyle Long. “It feels like a win. On the road. On Monday night. After going coast to coast. That feels really great.” The Bears got away fast, up 14-0 in less than six minutes of the first quarter. But the Jets closed to within four points in the second. The Bears pushed it back to 11 with an 80-yard drive to open the second half. But the Jets closed to within five points in the fourth. And the Bears answered with a field goal to push the Jets a little further back. [WATCH:  Trestman: 'I'm really proud of our football team' ] The come-from-behind grit — “scrappy” — that marked the rally from 17-0 and 20-7 deficits last Sunday seemed at times to be missing against the Jets on Monday night in MetLife Stadium. What was present, however, was a team that got on top of a lesser opponent early, then allowed that rival to take back the momentum and nearly the scoreboard. After the Jets finished the first half with some growing momentum, the Bears came out with that 80-yard touchdown drive in the third quarter. It wasn’t enough to completely squelch the Jets, who closed to within four points with a fifth field goal midway through the fourth quarter. But the offense then strung together a 12-play drive lasting six minutes, 42 seconds and ending with a 45-yard field goal by Robbie Gould for the final margin. For the second straight week the Bears turned turnovers into touchdowns, which is routinely one of those things that very successful teams do every season. A 45-yard touchdown return of an interception by safety Ryan Mundy on the New York Jets’ second play was followed later in Monday’s first quarter by a three-play, 40-yard touchdown finish following a recovery of a fumbled punt by safety Ahmad Dixon. This comes after the Bears turned interceptions into their final two touchdowns against San Francisco. [WATCH:  Bears Postgame Live: Breaking down Jay Cutler's performance ] But much as it did in the loss to the Buffalo Bills, which started with a four-play, pitch-and-catch TD drive, then had two punts and two turnovers in its next four possessions, the offense on Monday effectively stalled at some crucial points from then on. At points with chances to put the Jets away with any kind of sustained drive — like a touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter rather than a field goal — that didn’t happen. But what did happen was a win with the run-intensive Jets netting just 108 yards on the ground and the Bears committing just one turnover (a Jay Cutler fumble on a blitz-sack) while taking the ball away from an opponent three times (two interceptions, one fumble recovery, 14 points off those turnovers). The defense, with its own chance to put the game away in the final two minutes, allowed a 51-yard catch and run by wide receiver Greg Salas with shoddy tackles and angles. That was followed by holding on linebacker Jonathan Bostic to give New York another first down, this at the Chicago 14, while pressure was flushing Geno Smith out of pocket and into a busted play. But third- and fourth-down passes went incomplete in the end zone, with plays being made when the game was in the balance. “This is a team that is there for each other,” said defensive end Willie Young. “We are going to find a way, because we have confidence that we will find a way to get over adversity.” That would be called ... scrappy. - John Mullin, CSN Chicago Yahoo!

Cowboys, Eagles and Ravens pull off comeback wins (The Associated Press) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys were big-time comeback kids in Week 3 of the NFL season. So were Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles. Peyton Manning rallied the Denver Broncos back in a Super Bowl rematch, but Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks came up with the victory - as they did seven months ago on football's biggest stage.

Shutdown Corner NFL Power Rankings: Taking stock of the 3-0 teams (Shutdown Corner) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
We're down to three undefeated teams after just three weeks. And the three undefeateds are far from flawless. The Bengals are the best of the group. Their offense has been diverse, especially with quarterback Andy Dalton playing well and running back Giovani Bernard emerging as a star. They're an impressive 3-0, yet you're forgiven if you have some reservations about completely buying in. You remember the playoffs the last three years. Then there are the Cardinals and Eagles. The Cardinals have a great coaching staff led by Bruce Arians. That's the best way to explain them overcoming their massive defensive personnel losses and winning despite having to go with Drew Stanton at quarterback. Their schemes on both sides are covering up some issues. It's hard to imagine the Cardinals being a Super Bowl contender with Stanton at quarterback (or, let'e be honest, with Carson Palmer at quarterback) but 3-0 is a great start nonetheless. The Eagles are just a strange 3-0 team. They're literally unlike any 3-0 team we've ever seen. They're the first in NFL history to go 3-0 after being down by at least 10 points in each of their first three games. They're 3-0, they also have a good coach, but do you really trust a team that allowed the Redskins and Jaguars to take double-digit leads on their home turf? All three of the 3-0 teams are in the top 10, of course, but none have cracked the top two yet. Onto the post-Week 3 power rankings: 32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-3, LW: 29) Unbelievable. 31. Oakland Raiders (0-3, LW: 32) There's something to be said for moral victories. They played well. Not a win, but I bet they feel a lot better than after the Week 2 nightmare against Houston. Yahoo!

Ravens owner says demanding Rice video 'never crossed my mind' (Reuters) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
By Eric Kelsey (Reuters) - The owner of the National Football League's Baltimore Ravens on Monday apologized for not demanding the graphic video of former star running back Ray Rice striking his then-fiance, saying it "never crossed my mind" and he was "deeply sorry." Stephen Bisciotti offered the mea culpa at a news conference the team had called in response to address an ESPN investigative story that alleged the team had advocated for lenient punishment for Rice and knew about the contents of the video early on. ...

After another comeback win, Cardinals get time off (The Associated Press) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
Three times already this season, the Arizona Cardinals have fallen behind only to rally to victory in the second half. The latest comeback came in Sunday's 23-14 win over San Francisco, a team Arizona had beaten once in its last 10 tries. Heading into a bye week, coach Bruce Arians says that show of resiliency stands out above everything else. He says it shows a ''true belief in each other that you play for 60 minutes and you play to the end.'' In three games, Arizona has outscored its opponents 30-0 in the fourth quarter. Yahoo!
