As we enter the fourth week of the NFL season, it is hard to believe that only five teams are still unbeaten.

When you look at the five, it is also surprising.

The Eagles are undefeated with rookie Carson Went at quarterback. Philadelphia is coming off a blowout of the Steelers.

The Vikings have not lost despite the season-ending injury to quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, followed by running back Adrian Peterson going down.

The Broncos are unbeaten even after Peyton Manning retired. Trevor Siemian has done a solid job at quarterback.

The Ravens have played in several Maalox mashers but still have a zero in the loss column.

Finally there is the Patriots, 3-0 even without Tom Brady in the lineup. Bill Belichick is one of the greatest NFL coaches of all-time.

We had a great time visiting the University of Notre Dame for the weekend. I went with my daughter Terri`s family and my wife Lorraine. Always a special time visiting this campus. Unfortunately, they were defeated by the Blue Devils. It`s a tough time as a football fan because Notre Dame currently has a 1-3 record.

I enjoyed speaking at the bookstore and sharing the game of life to fans and those that gathered.

We will be back for two games this year, as Notre Dame takes on Stanford and Miami as I return back with my daughter Sherri and her family. Let`s Go Irish!

It was a wild weekend in college football.

Wisconsin opened some eyes with a big win over Michigan State. Tennessee came back from a 21-point deficit to beat Florida. Stanford rallied to get past UCLA. Texas A&M remained unbeaten by besting Arkansas.

Notre Dame was stunned by Duke. That loss cost defensive coordinator Brian Van Gorder his job. LSU lost to Auburn and Les Miles was fired as head coach. Georgia was blown out by Mississippi.

Next week included a big ACC showdown between Louisville and Clemson.

Last night Buster Posey and his wife Kristen hosted a gala to raise money for the V Foundation for pediatric cancer research. It was off the charts! The passion and dedication that the Posey`s have to help kids is unbelievable. They are my kind of people.

Buster Posey, a baseball superstar, MVP, Rookie of the Year, three times World Series champ has never forgotten where he came from. He and his wife do so much including extending a hand to help young kids.

Winner of American Idol, Phillip Phillips, entertained and did a fantastic job. It was a wonderful night with laughter, emotion and jubilation as we raised $500,000 for kids battling cancer. It was awesome with a capital A!

I want to thank Larry Baer, President of the Giants, as he and his staff demonstrated throughout the entire evening.
