I'm not sure but it seemed to me this week had alot more turn overs than usual...and unusual quarterbacks turning the ball over. Every game this week has had 1 quarterback turn over the ball. 6 teams didn't commit a turnover; Patriots, Buccaneers, Browns, Chiefs, 49ers and Raiders. Who thought the Raiders would go a game without a turn over, but then again who thought they could score 59 points in 3 quarters. (About) 72 turnovers total for this week. An average of 5 turnovers per game. Two quarterbacks had 4 interceptions, one isn't new and one is, Dree Brees threw 2 pick 6s to the same defensive lineman and Jay Cutler threw 4 passes to the same Redskin, one time for a 'Skin touchdown, cornerback DeAngelo Hall. Also 8 rookies turned the ball over while 3 rookies either recovered a punt or intercepted a pass.
