missing top wide receiver Steve Smith, for disciplinary reasons. Meanwhile the
Minnesota Vikings have been a surprise in a negative way. A team many thought
would compete for a division title in the NFC has started 0-2, and is now
changing starting quarterbacks. Out with Tarvaris Jackson, in with veteran Gus
Frerotte. Frerotte will get help from second year running back Adrian Peterson,

team into the end zone. For

Dallas Cowboys (2-0) @ Green Bay Packers (2-0) Time: Spread:Dallas -3 Over/Under: 51 Preview: The Sunday Night Football crew has done their homework in week three. If the goal of Sunday Night is to pit two solid teams against each other for an entertaining affair, they appear to have done it. After all the off season controversy for the Packers involving former quarterback Brett Favre and the new guy, Aaron Rodgers, the Packers, and Rodgers have done a great job putting the doubters to rest. Rodgers threw for 328 yards and three touchdowns in the 48-25 win on Sunday over Detroit. He has yet to throw an interception on the year, and has completed 70 percent of his passes. 258 of those yards have gone to receiver Greg Jennings.

Not only did they lose that tough affair, but in week one Jake Delhomme throw a touchdown pass as time expired to lead the Panthers to a 26-24 win over the Chargers. If losing Linebacker Shawne Merriman was not enough, a possible injury to star running back LaDainian Tomlinson has got the Chargers and their fans a little worried. On Sunday, Tomlinson ran for just 26 yards on 10 carries. For the Jets, they were not able to capitalize on a division opponent without the 2007 MVP Tom Brady. The Patriots defense held the Jets in check in the 19-10 win. Quarterback Brett Favre is 5-0 lifetime against San Diego, but has not played in San Diego since 2003. This will be the Jets first ever visit to Qualcomm Stadium, since the 20-17 upset win in the 2005 wild card game.
