Best and worst QB performances from Week 3

Aaron Rodgers threw four first half TDs, Ryan Fitzpatrick had six INTs. Check out the best and worst QBs in Week 3 so far, according to Total QBR.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Shane Vereen's loss is a significant one for the Giants' offense. Ben McAdoo has a clearly defined role in the offense for him as the running back in the two-minute drill and on third downs.

Scheme changes likely will be necessary.
