@Providence 28, Connecticut 23
Rashard Mendenhall scored twice and Ben Roethlisberger had 3 touchdown

@Washington 23, Baltimore 7
The Capitols (2‑1) avoided falling into a 2-game hole in the
Southern due in large measure to Adrian Peterson’s 120 yards and 2 scores. Penalties wiped out
a Darren Sproles punt return TD and a 47-yard Kolb-to-Chambers completion inside
the 5 for the Bolts (2‑1).
