There was a wild finish in Arizona and the Steelers stay undefeated in Pittsburgh. Let’s get to the rundown.
-The Arizona Cardinals beat the Buffalo Bills 32-30 on a Hail Mary touchdown pass from Kyler Murray to DeAndre Hopkins as time expired. This was after Josh Allen had thrown a beautiful touchdown to Stefon Diggs with less than a minute to go to take the lead themselves. Wild finish. Arizona is now 6-3 and the Bills fall to 7-3.
-The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Cincinnati Bengals 36-10 to move to 9-0. The Bengals are 2-6-1.
-The Cleveland Browns beat the Houston Texans 10-7. Nick Chubb could have scored a touchdown in the final minute but purposefully ran out of bounds so the Browns could kneel down and win. That’s a bad beat for anyone who bet the Browns at -3.5. The Browns improve to 6-3 as the Texans fall to 2-7.
-The Detroit Lions beat the Washington Football Team 30-27 as Matt Prater kicked a 59 yard field goal as time expired. Alex Smith started his first game in almost two years in his comeback from that horrible leg injury he had that literally almost killed him and threw for 390 yards. That’s a feel-good story but Washington falls to 2-7 as the Lions improve to 4-5.
-The Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Carolina Panthers 46-23 as they rebounded from that beatdown they suffered last week to move to 7-3 and the Panthers fall to 3-7.
-The New York Giants beat the Philadelphia Eagles 27-17 to twist up the NFC East even more. The Eagles still lead the division at 3-5-1 but the Giants are now 3-7 so who knows who’s going to win that terrible division.
-The Green Bay Packers barely beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20 to move to 7-2 as the Jaguars lost their 8th game in a row to fall to 1-8.
-The Miami Dolphins beat the Los Angeles Chargers 29-21 to improve to 6-3 as the Chargers fall to 2-7.
-The Las Vegas Raiders beat the Denver Broncos 37-12 to move to 6-3 as the Broncos fall to 3-6.
-The Los Angeles Rams beat the Seattle Seahawks 23-16 as both teams are now 6-3.
-The New Orleans Saints beat the San Francisco 49ers 27-13 as Drew Brees got hurt and could miss some time. The Saints are 7-2 while the 49ers are 4-6.
-The New England Patriots beat the Baltimore Ravens 23-17 to get to 4-5 as the Ravens fall to 6-3.
