It was another wild week in the NFL. Here’s what you need to know to keep up at dinner tonight!
San Francisco 49ers at St. Louis Rams (49ers won, 35-11)
This easy win for the 49ers was sponsored by the Rams, who had anything but an easy night.
Baltimore Ravens at Buffalo Bills (Bills won, 23-20)
This win was sponsored by Joe Flacco and his 5 interceptions.
Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns (BROWNS WON, 17-6)
Perhaps every struggling team should trade their best player and see what happens? It’s clearly working for the Browns.
Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions (Lions won, 40-32)
Well, the NFC North just got interesting.
NY Giants at Kansas City Chiefs (Chiefs won, 31-7)
When the schedule came out over the summer, did anyone think the teams in this game would come out on the other side 0-4 and 4-0…and it would be the Giants who were winless and the Chiefs who were undefeated?
Pittsburgh Steelers at Minnesota Vikings (in London) (Vikings won, 34-27)
If you look into Mike Tomlin’s eyes at his postgame presser, you can almost see the flames. One can assume there were no happy campers in that London locker room.
Arizona Cardinals at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Cardinals won, 13-10)
Carson Palmer is looking legit. Having Larry Fitzgerald to toss the ball to doesn’t hurt, either.
Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars (Colts won, 37-3)
It never really gets easier to be a Jaguar. Another week, another beat down.
Seattle Seahawks at Houston Texans (Seahawks won, 23-20 OT)
Someone has to start beating the Seahawks on the road if the rest of the NFC wants a shot at the Super Bowl. Because who is beating them at home in the playoffs?!
NY Jets at Tennessee Titans (Titans won, 38-13)
Hated to see Titans QB Jake Locker go down with a nasty hip injury. He was having a great start to the season.
Philadelphia Eagles at Denver Broncos (Broncos won, 52-20)
There’s the NFL…and then there’s Peyton Manning. He’s in a league of his own.
Dallas Cowboys at San Diego Chargers (Chargers won, 30-21)
The Chargers tend to find themselves on the losing end of close games in the 4th quarter, but they pulled this one out – thanks in part to recovering a late fumble by the Cowboys.
Washington Redskins at Oakland Raiders (Redskins won, 24-14)
It looked like this one was going to be all Raiders early on, but the Redskins came back to get their first win of the season.
New England Patriots at Atlanta Falcons (Patriots won, 30-23)
Remember that league Peyton Manning is in? Tom Brady hangs out there, too. It’s the only explanation for how the Patriots are undefeated right now.
Miami at New Orleans (Monday night on ESPN)
This is the beauty of the NFL: a game that was initially seen as a bit of a snoozer is now a compelling match up between two undefeated teams. Hard to say which way this one will go, but the Saints might have the edge at home.
Bye (Off) Week: Green Bay Packers, Carolina Panthers
