The third week of the NFL season had some highlights and plenty of lowlights.

Every week, we’ll look at who did well and some of the cards that collectors can grab of these players. We’ll pick a Veteran of the Week, Rookie and the Week and Breakout Performance of the Week.

Got different ideas? Let us know in the comments.

Veteran of the Week
Joe Flacco, Baltimore Ravens: Flacco played in one of the most exciting games of the weekend, Flacco led his his team to a 31-30 win over the New England Patriots with two scoring drives in the fourth quarter. Add in the emotional toll of wide receiver Torrey Smith losing his brother in an accident (Smith had two touchdowns), and it was an amazing game to watch.

Flacco finished with 382 passing yards with three touchdowns while completing 28-of-39 passes.
