Oh Antonio Morrison Jersey , the moans and groans in Nawlins.The consternation in Steeltown.The woe is me refrains in Carolina's Queen City.The joke's on me attitude in Jax.And the tabloid screams in the Big Apple.Maybe all of that dread and disgust will quiet down, at least for a week. Hey, folks, the new guys at quarterback did pretty darn well for your teams.Teddy Bridgewater was steady in place of Drew Brees, guiding the Saints to victory in Seattle, as tough a place to win as any.Kyle Allen, probably most famous in the NFL for once being a teammate of Kyler Murray's at Texas A&M, was a revelation in place of Cam Newton as the Panthers got their first victory of the season, in Arizona.Gardner Minshew is making Jaguars fans wonder why he was a sixth-round draft pick, stepping in for Nick Foles and looking like a starter (and future star).Daniel Jones, the guy who caused Giants general manager Dave Gettleman to be vilified for drafting the Duke QB sixth overall last April,looked worthy of a No. 1 overall pick. He stepped in for what the TV announcers were calling a New York legend, the benched Eli Manning, and lifted the team to last-minute victory at Tampa.Only Mason Rudolph, replacing Ben Roethlisberger (elbow surgery) for the Steelers, didn't get a win among the newcomers. But he didn't embarrass himself at all — and had Pittsburgh in position to beat San Francisco.Plus, in Indianapolis, this stuff isn't new for Jacoby Brissett, but his name certainly belongs high on the list of quarterbacks — eight teams already have them — who were not considered the starter last month and now are in charge of their teams.Yes, one-quarter of the league, as injuries, ineffectiveness and in one case, a retirement (Andrew Luck), created a sea wave of change that still could turn into a tsunami.There's no guarantees the likes of Marcus Mariota Kenny Moore Color Rush Jersey , Case Keenum, Jameis Winston or even Andy Dalton, despite his solid performances in Cincinnati's 0-3 start, will remain behind center.And that's not even considering more injuries that often come, no matter how much NFL rules try to protect the passer.For Week 3, though, let's celebrate these youngsters who stepped in and stepped up.KYLE ALLEN, PANTHERSIn his second-career start, Allen had four touchdown passes and a 144.4 QB rating."He's a guy who really keeps his composure," Carolina coach Ron Rivera said. "He understands. He's smart. He's got a good football mind."Not to mention the arm and legs he showed.DANIEL JONESAt some point, it was clear the struggling Giants would turn to Jones. It came a bit earlier than some expected. So did his first NFL heroics.Jones threw for 336 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for two TDs, including the go-ahead score with 1:16 remaining as New York rallied from an 18-point halftime hole to win 32-31."There's certain things that I knew about this kid when we drafted him. He was tough, he was competitive, and in my opinion he's a winner," Giants coach Pat Shurmur said. "Now the rest of it is just quarterback stuff. But those first three things give him a chance to move forward."TEDDY BRIDGEWATERIt's been a long road back for Bridgewater, who looked like Minnesota's franchise quarterback before a severe knee injury forced him to miss almost two seasons.Teaming with coach Sean Payton, whose offensive expertise obviously isn't limited to handing game plans to Brees, Bridgewater was exactly what the team needed."I said all week Teddy is a leader," Saints running back Alvin Kamara said after Bridgewater threw for a touchdown, was not picked, and helped New Orleans to a huge road victory. "He had composure. He had poise and we got it done."GARDNER MINSHEWThe rookie threw two touchdown passes against Tennessee last Thursday and also had a receiver drop a ball in the end zone. He's already a star in North Florida."Nothing rattles this kid," coach Doug Marrone said. "He's really good at communication and I think he's really good at preparing himself and making sure there are no surprises out there for him. That's just a guy that has a maniacal work ethic."MASON RUDOLPHThe showing by the second-year QB, basically a caddie for Roethlisberger until now, should calm the three rivers a bit in Pittsburgh. Rudolph wasn't spectacular , but also was victimized by some errors around him in the 24-20 loss to the Niners. He has no reason to hang his head."For a young guy to come and start his first game in an away game on the West Coast and going against a great team, I think he handled himself well," wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster said. "There were situations where we messed up, didn't execute or turned the ball over, he stayed positive and kept us going." Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich prefers taking the aggressive approach.His coaching staff understands it. His players respect it. And opponents know they must be prepared to confront it.Sometimes, the fourth-down gambles pay off — as they did earlier this season at Tennessee and Kansas City. Sometimes, they backfire. Either way, though, Reich acknowledges he's willing to take the same risky call against Houston on Sunday as he did in last year's home overtime loss to the Texans."Those decisions always come down to what's best for the team in the moment," Reich said. "A lot of things go into those decisions, but primarily like you said, it's a belief in the players. Yes, we think situationally it calls for it, but it really stems from a belief that we'll get it done."Nobody has been better playing the odds this season than Reich.Indy has converted all seven fourth-down attempts, the gutsiest call coming from its 35-yard line with less than 2½ minutes to go in a two-point game at Tennessee.And when things don't go right, such as the incompletion on fourth-and-4 from the Indy 43 with 24 seconds left in overtime against Houston, Reich still seems to hit the jackpot. While the Colts lost that game, he won over the locker room with a season-changing moment.Indy has won 13 of its 19 games since then including twice at Houston late last season."Frank made the call he felt was best for his team and that's in my opinion what Frank does well," coach Bill O'Brien said after the Texans converted a key fourth down at Kansas City last week."He's an aggressive coach. You know sometimes you have to do in your mind what's best for your team from your preparation and where you are in the game. Those are things that Frank does very well."It keeps everyone on their toes — and the bye week may only give Reich more time to contemplate how to play it Sunday."I think that mentality is what carries beyond that one play," he said. "I think that's an example of what happened last year. Yeah, that was one play, but it was the belief and conviction in our players I think that carries longer than the one play."CATCHING ONFour-time Pro Bowler T.Y. Hilton has thrived against the Texans over the years.In 15 games, the Colts receiver has 78 receptions, 1 Denico Autry Jersey ,506 yards and nine touchdowns. Late last season, with an ankle injury, he still managed to haul in 11 catches for 260 yards in the games at Houston.The Texans know just tough Hilton can be."He's fast, great route runner, can come in and out of his breaks, understands how to attack leverage, has great experience," O'Brien said. "He's seen all of the coverages there are, so he knows how to get open. He's got good chemistry with Jacoby and I think he's targeted quite a bit. It's a challenge."HOLDING THE LINEThe Colts went from worst in sacks allowed in 2017 to first last season. Now Houston is trying to follow a similar blueprint.While Jacoby Brissett has gone down just six times, tied for the second fewest in the league, the Texans have made a dramatic turnaround after giving up 18 sacks during the first four weeks.Neither Brissett nor Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson have been sacked in their past two games."They're doing a heck of a job of playing as a unit," Watson said. "Everyone is up there with the right mindset, positive attitude and always playing the next play. So, those guys up there have been doing a heck of a job."The Colts, meanwhile, have only allowed one sack in their past five October games.SEEKING HYDERunning back Carlos Hyde fit exactly what the Texans wanted when they acquired him from Kansas City on Aug. 31 — after losing Lamar Miller to a season-ending knee injury.Hyde has been the key to the league's No. 5 rushing attack (139.8 yards) and ran for a season-high 116 yards and one touchdown last weekend.He's 10th in the NFL with 426 yards rushing and has three touchdowns this season.HOME, SWEET, HOMEAfter Indy won 13 straight home games to open the series, Houston has taken three of past four at Lucas Oil Stadium.The Colts' lone victory during this current run came in the 2017 season finale, with Brissett closing out the season as the starter. Indy also had a seven-game home winning streak snapped by Oakland on Sept. 29.AP Sports Writer Kristie Rieken in Houston also contributed to this report.
