Three unbeatens left in NFL

We're three whole weeks into the 2014 NFL season, and only three teams haven't lost. The final unbeatens: Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles, all winning teams from 2013, but none exactly thought to be sure-fire contenders before the season. On the other end, a host of playoff teams from last season are just 1-2. What do you make of it all?

NFL Week 2 questions

The NFL's second week has come and gone, and both Washingtons made big news. The D.C. version saw its team lose quarterback Robert Griffin III to an ankle injury -- but win in big fashion anyway behind Kirk Cousins. The team from the state of Washington, meanwhile, was stunned in a 30-21 loss to the Chargers, with cornerback Richard Sherman being called out by San Diego players. What do you make of the week's major storylines?

NFL is back; will Seattle repeat?

The Seattle Seahawks started this season the way they ended the last one: with an emphatic -- albeit not quite as dramatic -- win over a talented team with a star quarterback. Instead of embarrassing the Denver Broncos like in the Super Bowl, this time Seattle beat the Green Bay Packers 36-16 in the NFL's first game of 2014. Is this a sign that the Seahawks are in for a repeat?
