On Sunday night, in a matchup between two of the division’s top teams, the Tennessee Titans defeated the Los Angeles Rams 28-16 thanks to a stellar defensive performance. The win was capped by Kevin Byard returning Matthew Stafford’s second interception of the game 24 yards for a score.

Tennessee’s suffocating performance against Los Angeles’ potent passing offence was led by Jeffery Simmons, who had three of the Volunteers’ five sacks of Stafford.

Crucially, Stafford threw two interceptions in a span of 11 seconds in the second quarter, which the Titans converted into 14 points. This put Tennessee on the verge of a fifth straight victory.

Defense Carries Titans Past Rams 28-16 for 5th Straight Win

Titans (7-2) quarterback Ryan Tannehill tossed for 143 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score, but the team totaled only 194 offensive yards in its debut game without NFL rushing leader Derrick Henry.

Despite gaining only 21 yards on the ground, Adrian Peterson scored a touchdown from 6 yards out with 3 minutes remaining in the opening game of his 15th NFL season.

Green Bay loses to Kansas City.

On Sunday, Kansas City defeated Green Bay 13-7 thanks to a touchdown pass from Patrick Mahomes and a persistent blitzing of Packers quarterback Jordan Love, who was making his long-awaited first start in lieu of Aaron Rodgers.

As we reported earlier this week, Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19, forcing the reigning MVP to sit out for the first time since the 2017 season. In response, the Packers’ offence, led by Love, went 19 for 34 for 190 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in the fourth quarter against the defending AFC champions.

With 4:49 remaining, Green Bay had a shot when Love threw a touchdown pass to Allen Lazard. On third-and-10 near midfield with less than two minutes left, Mahomes delivered a dart to Tyreek Hill for a first down, allowing Kansas City to run out the time.

Kansas City (5-4) has won three of its previous four games despite an inconsistent offence thanks in large part to Travis Kelce’s five receptions for 68 yards and a score. Against Green Bay, they mustered only 237 total yards.

Their seven-game winning streak ended when the Packers (7-2) were held to only 301 yards of total offence. The Packers have gone 6-12-1 without Rodgers since 2008. Mason Crosby, kicking for the Packers, missed a first-quarter field goal attempt from 40 yards out.

In the second quarter, his 37-yard attempt was blocked. Later in the half, during a punt, one of the Packers’ downfield blockers accidentally touched the ball with his toe, leading to a recovery by Kansas and a chip-shot field goal.

By the early stages of the fourth quarter, Green Bay had put together a respectable drive, thanks in large part to Love’s seven-pass completion streak. After two unsuccessful passes, Love had Davante Adams, who had returned from a positive COVID-19 test previous week, but his pass was intercepted by L’Jarius Sneed just short of the Kansas City goal line.

The Jaguars’ Defence was the Key to the Team’s Surprising Victory Over the Bills.

As a whole, Jacksonville was the victor. Sunday’s 9-6 shock win over the Buffalo Bills was largely due to the stellar play of linebacker Josh Allen. Similar first and last name Buffalo’s ace quarterback fumbled the ball three times, including twice in the second half.

In every game he’s played so far this season, he hasn’t committed a turnover after the break. The Bills (5-3) dropped their second straight game. After losing badly in Seattle a week ago, the Jaguars (2-6) bounced back with a victory.

Allen threw for 264 yards for Buffalo while completing 31 of 47 passes (with two picks and a fumble). On a third-and-2 play at the Jaguars’ 37 with roughly 5 minutes and 2 seconds left, the first of two decisive events occurred. Dawuane Smoot applied pressure, and Allen fumbled the ball.

A second Josh Allen made a full recovery. In the final seconds, Buffalo regained possession and drove to the Jaguars’ 39. But Smoot sacked Allen on third down. Jacksonville recorded its fourth sack of the game.

Allen got the first one. Since the NFL began keeping track of sacks in 1982, this was the first time a player had sacked a quarterback with the same name.

Allen and Allen had been looking forward to this meeting, although Buffalo’s Allen made it obvious he didn’t want to become acquainted with Jacksonville’s Allen in the backfield. Nonetheless, it occurred when Allen knocked Dion Dawkins off the ledge.

Despite the fact that they shared the same first and last names and were both picked seventh in separate NFL draughts, the two guys with the same name had never met before Sunday. They’ve been corresponding on several social media platforms.

The Broncos Beat the Cowboys, Ruining Prescott’s Homecoming.

On Sunday, Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw for a touchdown and rushed for another as they defeated the Dallas Cowboys 30-16 to snap the Cowboys’ six-game winning run.

The Cowboys (6-2) avoided their worst shutout loss at home since 1985 despite the return of Dak Prescott from a game missed due to an injured right calf. However, the two late touchdowns scored by the Cowboys were inconsequential.

In their first game since dealing star pass rusher Von Miller, the Broncos (5-4) sacked Prescott twice, both times by rookie Jonathon Cooper for the first time in his career, and generally made him uncomfortable.

Nonetheless, the Broncos were able to get their offence going through the running game. Bridgewater threw a touchdown pass of 41 yards to Tim Patrick, who outraced the NFL leader in interceptions, Trevon Diggs, to the end zone, giving Minnesota their first double-digit lead of the season against Dallas.

The Broncos have won seven in a row in the series, dating back to 1995, when they built a 30-0 advantage. Within the final five minutes of the game, Prescott completed two touchdown passes to Malik Turner.

Cardinals Prevail Over the Nines Despite Missing Key Players

On Sunday, the Arizona Cardinals defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-17 despite playing with a depleted roster. James Conner scored three touchdowns (two on the ground and one receiving 45 yards for a score) from quarterback Colt McCoy.

Even without quarterback Kyler Murray and wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green, the Cardinals (8-1) swept the 49ers this season (3-5). Conner sparked the Cardinals to an early lead with touchdown runs on two consecutive possessions in the first quarter.

In the third quarter, Conner scored a long touchdown on a catch and run on Arizona’s first drive to help put the game out of reach. Conner rushed for 173 yards and a touchdown, giving him the NFL lead in both categories. His 11 total touchdowns have come in the last seven games.

San Francisco struggled defensively and gave up two fumbles in the first half, and McCoy, a longtime backup who had won two starts in the previous 10 seasons, was a big reason why. For 249 yards, McCoy completed 22 of 26 passes.

Ravens Win in Overtime Thanks to Tucker’s Field Goal.

On Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Minnesota Vikings 34-31 thanks to a field goal from Justin Tucker from 36 yards out with 16 seconds remaining in overtime. After falling behind by 14 points in the third quarter, the AFC North-leading Ravens (6-1) came back and won in OT despite an acrobatic interception by Minnesota’s Anthony Barr on their first possession.

Barr tipped and grabbed a throw from Lamar Jackson to give the Vikings the ball at their own 38, but the Vikings went three-and-out and Baltimore drove inside Tucker’s range once more. For the Vikings (3-5), who have never lost by more than seven points this season, it was another heartbreaking defeat.

A 1-yard rush by Le’Veon Bell with 3:29 left in the game gave the Ravens a 31-24 lead. With 1:03 remaining in the game, the Vikings’ Kirk Cousins threw a touchdown pass to Adam Thielen from 1 yards out.

On fourth-and-9 from the Baltimore 16-yard line, Cousins completed a pass to Justin Jefferson for 12 yards to keep the drive alive.

Jackson completed 26 throws for 266 yards, 3 scores, and 2 picks. As a runner, he contributed 120 yards on 21 attempts. With this performance, he tied Michael Vick for the most regular-season games by a quarterback with at least 100 yards rushing.

The Browns Romp Over the Bengals.

Cleveland Browns cornerback Denzel Ward’s early 99-yard interception return for a score helped launch a 41-16 thrashing of Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Baker Mayfield also tossed two touchdown passes, while Nick Chubb rushed for 137 yards.

After losing three straight games, the Browns (5-4) entered this game needing a victory badly. Their situation grew dramatic on Wednesday when star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was exiled for poor behaviour and the team opted to terminate him.

At Cincinnati, Cleveland’s QB, Baker Mayfield, was on target and the Browns put together their most complete game of the season to beat the Bengals, just as they did a year ago when Mayfield played more freely after Beckham’s season-ending knee injury (5-4).

Rookie Bengals receiver Ja’Marr Chase dropped two receptions, including one in the end zone, while Burrow threw two interceptions and was sacked five times (three by blitzing defender Troy Hill).

At halftime, the Browns led 24-10, and in the third quarter, Chubb scored on a 70-yard touchdown run that sparked wild celebrations on the Cleveland sideline.
