Cowboys get the first DUB, 28-21
The Dallas Cowboys used a balanced approach to today's game. A game in which they DESPERATELY needed to win. With the recent trade the Cowboys made, fans were expecting the offense to continue to misfire. The complete opposite happened as the team seemed like they had a spark. HB DeMarco Murray would rush for 96 yards on 22 carries and 2 TDs, including the game winning TD with :15 seconds left. Tony Romo would find Dez Bryant 7 times throughout the day for 130 yards, but the biggest play Romo made came in the first quarter when he hit WR Cole Beasley on a 61 yard pass to start the scoring. Defensively the Cowboys would force 6 interceptions throughout the game, with Morris Claiborne catching two of them. Next up is the NY Giants.
Buffalo 16 Tennessee 10 OT
Buffalo came back from being down 10-3 in 4th quarter to win 16-10 in OT. Game tying drive was drive that saw Scott Chandler made 2 nice catches to help tie the game. First one looked like he stretched in front of the Tennessee defender and one handed it away from him. The second one was the game tying TD. He caught it just as he was about to get hit and made it into the end zone. In OT Buffalo wins the toss and receives. CJ Spiller, who was been a subject of trade talks recently, takes the OT kickoff 101 yards for the game winning TD.
Total offense for both teams was Buffalo 177 Tennessee 176
Leading rusher for Buffalo was Fred Jackson with 48 yards, but on 19 carries, Tennessee Chris Johnson 9 carries 40 yards
Leading receiver for Buffalo Scott Chandler 4 catches 52 yards, Tennessee Kenny Britt 3 catches for 66 yards
Locker and Fitzpatrick were sloppy at QB each throwing 2 INT
EJ Henderson got hurt on the Tennessee TD, by HB Justin Harper, and will be out 3 weeks
Great game thebouncer24
@ 28 - 34 Raiders win there 2nd game of the year, as the offense has a well balanced day while the defense would force 5 turnovers and record 6 sacks. While the defense was giving up chunks of yards threw the air, the run defense would hold MJD to 18 yards on 9 attempts and force Blaine Gabbert to throw 4 INT's to go along with his 3 TD's. Lamar Houston would have another big day as he would get 3 sacks. On offense Darren McFadden would record his first 100 yard game of the season with a 106 yds rushing and a TD, while Denarius Moore would have 122 yds recieving and 2 TD's.
Colts hold off late surge; Tie win total from a year ago
INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana -- It was a game of clock control as the Colts were able to make the plays they needed on crucial downs to keep the ball moving. The Browns had the Indianpolis offense confused for the majority of the game and which took away the deep ball and big plays. Andrew Luck played the best game of his young career and proved during today's game he has the ability to make a play with his arm or feet. The Browns offense took a while to get going and put a scare on the Colts late when they started clicking. Great, soild game ryty32 -Stats that Matter- Time of Possession: Browns 6:55 // Colts 21:05 Red Zone %:Browns 0/0 (0%) // Colts 5-5 (100%) 3rd Down Conversions: Browns 1-6 (16%) // Colts 8-13 (61%) Turnovers: Browns 4 (-3) // Colts 1 (+3)
49ers 28 - Seahawks 17
It was a sloppy game in a downpour at Candlestick between division rivals as the fans saw a combined 11 turnovers in this one. Every time it looked like a team would score, there was still the high likelihood that a turnover would happen. Alex Smith threw 2 INT's, but he also threw 4 TD's and had 242 yards passing. Russell Wilson would struggle in this game as he threw 1 TD and 6 INT's, and Marshawn Lynch did not help the rookie QB out as he carried it 14 times for 37 yards and lost a fumble. Frank Gore played well for the 49ers, rushing the ball 26 times for 116 yards, but he did lose 2 fumbles which could have been costly. The 49ers move to 6-1 overall and the Seahawks drop to 4-3.
gg Emmdotfrisk I look forward to our rematch
BLOUNT PLAYS HUGE ROLE IN RELIEF! NEW ORLEANS- HB Lagarette Blount comes off the bench in the second half to help his team to victory over the New Orleans Saints. He carried the ball 9 times for 50yds and scored 2 td's in the absence of HB Doug Martin, who is reportedly out for a while with a possible knee injury. Josh Freeman didn't have any td's nor int's but managed the game rather well completing 15 of his 19 passing attempts for 266yds. Next up, The Minnesota Vikings! 27-17 BUCS! gg NeuroticTruth

Texans Knock Off Ravens
This was a very well played game by the Texans. They would be aided by turnovers in key spots. The game started slow though as the Texans would give up a quick td. Later on the Ravens would add to their lead with a FG to put them up 10-0. Houston would respond back with a long TD pass from Mallet to Johnson to make it a 10-7 Ravens lead. As time expired in the first half the Texans would get a pick 6. This was the turning put in the game. Ravens would get a FG in third quarter to cut it to 1 point game. The Texans would then respond back with another long td pass form Mallet to the lead to 8. Ravens would get a saftey put once again the Texans D would stand tall.
Final Score:Texans 21
