Vikings 28, Giants 10

• The Vikings offense was clicking on all cylinders as Cousins passed for 306 yards and two touchdowns, Cook rushed for 132 yards, and Thielen had 130 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

Falcons 32, Texans 53

• Despite 330 passing yards and three touchdowns from Matt Ryan, the Falcons defense couldn’t stop Deshaun Watson and Will Fuller. Watson had 426 passing yards and five touchdowns, while Fuller had 217 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

Buccaneers 24, Saints 31

• The Saints continue to roll without Brees, as Bridgewater passed for 314 yards and four touchdowns. Michael Thomas was on the receiving end of 182 of those yards and two touchdowns.

Bills 14, Titans 7

• Four missed field goals by the Titans allowed for a low scoring Bills offense to steal the game. The Bills defense looks poised to carry the team into the postseason.

Cardinals 26, Bengals 23

• Kyler Murray picks up his first win as a professional, passing for 253 yards in a game that saw the Cardinals maintain a strong lead until the Bengals made it interesting in the final moments.

Patriots 33, Redskins 7

• The Patriots remain undefeated from strong performances by Brady, Michel and Edelman. The Patriots defense continues to suffocate their opponents, resulting in a historic defensive season thus far.

Ravens 26, Steelers 23 (OT)

Bears 21, Raiders 24

Broncos 20, Chargers 13

• After a strong 2018 season, the Chargers seemed ready to take that next step. This season, they have tried their hardest to give away every game. Rivers threw two interceptions and no touchdowns, including an interception in the red zone that would’ve drew the game within three points.

Packers 34, Cowboys 24

• The score doesn’t reflect how dominant the Packers were in this game. The defense forced three interceptions by Prescott and limited Elliott to 62 yards rushing. Aaron Jones added 107 rushing yards and four touchdowns for the Packers offense. Cooper was the only spark of light for the Cowboys, with 226 receiving yards and one touchdown.
