NFL Week 3 Preseason Recap

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

NFL Preseason Fantasy Stats Week 3 of the NFL Preseason is usually the big weekend of football, because teams use that game as the major tune-up for Week 1 of the NFL Regular Season. Week 3 of the preseason schedule is the game after NFL training camps have broken, so this gives NFL teams the best chance to simulate the run-up to a live game at their regular season training facility. Also, Week 3 Preseason is two weeks before Week 1 of the Season, which means players can rest in the extra week b

Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars Preseason Results Donovan McNabb had a big showing in preseason football, with 244 yards on 21 of 36 passing for 1 touchdown (and 1 interception) and 10 yards rushing. Of course, McNabb’s big night was overshadowed by the first post-prison appearance of Michael Vick on an NFL field. Michael Vick showed up under center on the 2nd play of the game, as Donovan McNabb split out wide as a decoy while Vick threw a shovel pass. Michael Vick finished wi

Dolphins-Buccaneers Preseason Results

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Week 3 Preseason Chad Pennington had strong enough looking numbers against the Bucs, posting 9 completions for 128 yards and a touchdown, but it was hardly a confidence-building performance. The Dolphins hardly moved on their first four possessions and only moved in the first half during the two-minute drill. Once the team came out of halftime, Pennington led a drive for a touchdown. The Pennington touchdown was a 2-yard pass to Anthony Fasano, who
