Tennessee Titans 30, Carolina Panthers 3
Chris Johnson is alive! For the first time this season, Johnson didn't look like a zombie on the field, running for 130 yards and a touchdown. The Titans defense was extremely effective against the potent Panthers offense by sacking Cam Newton five times and holding him to 212 yards and no touchdowns.
Houston Texans 37, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 9
Matt Schaub only completed 11 passes but racked up 242 yards, two touchdowns, and a 154.9 passer rating due to a 78-yard reception to Arian Foster and an 80-yard bomb to Jacoby Jones. The running duo of Foster and Ben Tate continues to dominate as both ran for at least 60 yards and a score. Don't forget, the Texans still don't have Andre Johnson either. The Bucs turned the ball over four times as they lost their third straight game.
New Orleans Saints 26, Atlanta Falcons 23
This game sadly came down to a coach's decision. Tied at 23 in overtime, Falcons coach Mike Smith faced fourth down on his own 29. After initially sending the punting team out, the Falcons called timeout and came back with the offense to go for it. Michael Turner was stopped cold, the Saints took over and kicked a game-winner.
Pittsburgh Steelers 24, Cincinnati Bengals 17
Andy Dalton threw two more touchdowns to put his total at 14 on the season, the most by a rookie through the first nine games of the season, but two late interceptions doomed the Bengals to a loss. The Bengals came back from an early 14-point deficit to tie the game at 17 but couldn't finish for their sixth win in a row.
Dallas Cowboys 44, Buffalo Bills 7
The Bills are dropping fast and look nothing like the exciting team that started the season 3-0. Tony Romo and Ryan Fitzpatrick were polar opposites today as Romo was 23-26 with three scores and Fitzpatrick was picked off three times. Both of these teams remain very much in the their respective division hunts.
St. Louis Rams 13, Cleveland Browns 12
This game was worse than watching a TV showing paint drying with picture-in-picture of grass growing. Aside from an early Brandon Lloyd score, this was a field goal battle with neither offense ever putting together complete drives. It looks a little better in Cleveland than in Indy, but not by much.
Jacksonville Jaguars 17, Indianapolis Colts 3
There is one key stat in this game that sums it up for the Colts: Dan Orlovsky replaced Curtis Painter and threw the ball 10 times. Aside from the fact that MJD ran for 114 yards, there's nothing else to be said.
Denver Broncos 17, Kansas City Chiefs 10
Tim Tebow didn't complete his first pass until the end of the third quarter and he ended 2/8 with 62 yards solely because of a 56-yard touchdown to Eric Decker. RB Lance Ball ground out 96 yards on 30 carries for the Broncos, and Denver's D finished with four sacks.
Miami Dolphins 20, Washington Redskins 9
The Dolphins have a winning streak! Miami stopped the reinserted Rex Grossman, and Reggie Bush continued his string of great fantasy games with two touchdowns. The Dolphins, who had lost seven straight at home, intercepted Grossman twice and sacked him three times.
Arizona Cardinals 21, Philadelphia Eagles 17
When you're John Skelton, there's one thing you should be doing: Getting the ball to Larry Fitzgerald. The backup QB did just that by targeting Fitzgerald 13 times, and the Cardinals playmaker had his biggest game of the season with 146 yards and two touchdowns. With DeSean Jackson benched for missing a meeting, Mike Vick and the Eagles failed to hold a fourth-quarter lead for the fifth time this season.
