NFL Week 4 Summary

NFL Week 4 Summary

If there was a theme of Week 4 in, it was big comebacks. The Arizona Cardinals trailed the winless Buccaneers 10-0 in the fourth quarter, with Tampa Bay looking good to cover the 2.5 points it was giving -- the under 40 points was a lock. However, Cardinals star cornerback Patrick Peterson had two interceptions of Bucs rookie QB Mike Glennon in the closing minutes of the  fourth quarter, one of which led to Carson Palmer's 13-yard touchdown tying pass to Larry Fitzgerald with  3:06 remaining. Jay Feely won the game with a 27-yard field goal at 1:29. It was the first time the Cardinals won a game in which they trailed by at least 10 points in the fourth quarter since Dec. 28, 2003.

The Seattle Seahawks did Arizona one better. The Seahawks were 1-point favorites at Houston but trailed 20-6 midway through the fourth quarter. Marshawn Lynch scored from 3 yards out with 7:43 left to make it 20-13, and then Richard Sherman picked off a Matt Schaub pass with 2:40 left and returned it 58 yards for the tying touchdown. Houston failed to score on two overtime possessions and Seattle won it on a 45-yard Steven Hauschka kick with 3:19 left in OT. Seattle had been 0-105 in games it trailed by at least 14 points entering the fourth quarter.

The Broncos were the only double-digit favorites of Week 4 and easily covered the 10.5 points in a 52-20 win over visiting Philadelphia. The total of 58 was the highest of the season to that point. The biggest  underdog to win outright was Buffalo at +4 at home against Baltimore. The Bills intercepted reining Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco five times in the 23-20 victory.  Buffalo's E.J. Manuel became the first rookie quarterback ever to beat a defending Super Bowl champion in a September game.

Overall, favorites covered nine of the 15 games in Week 4.
