Billy Woods | October 21st, 2019

Raiders 24, Packers 42

• Aaron Rodgers asserted himself as a serious MVP candidate after the Mahomes injury. Rodgers passed for 429 yards and five touchdowns to improve the Packers to 6-1.

Rams 37, Falcons 10

• With the addition of Jalen Ramsey, the Rams defense looked more energetic and focused. Goff controlled the offense, passing for 268 yards and two touchdowns.

49ers 9, Redskins 0

• The rain in Washington was so overwhelming that the field was a practical slip-and-slide. Neither offense could move the ball, but the 49ers defense kept their limited lead the whole game to remain undefeated.

Texans 23, Colts 30

• In the aftermath of the Andrew Luck retirement, the Colts offensive line and defense has stepped up, with the line protecting Brissett and the defense forcing a late Watson interception to improve their record to 4-2.

Vikings 42, Lions 30

• Since being called out by his teammates, Cousins has been red hot. He passed for 337 yards and four touchdowns, while Cook added 142 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns.

Jaguars 27, Bengals 10

• Andy Dalton threw three interceptions as the Bengals remain winless this season. Fournette led the Jaguars offense, rushing for 131 yards.

Cardinals 27, Giants 21

• Even with Murray struggling against the Giants defense, the Cardinals offense was lethal. Chase Edmonds rushed for 126 yards and three touchdowns to extend the Cardinals winning streak to three.

Dolphins 21, Bills 31

• Down three points with a minute left in the game, the Dolphins attempted an onside kick. The Bills would recover and return the attempt for a touchdown to put the game away. The Dolphins remain winless and the Bills improve to 5-1 on the season.

Chargers 20, Titans 23

• The Chargers continue to invent ways to lose ball games. On the goal line with little time in the game, the Chargers fumbled away to the Titans. Derrick Henry rushed for 90 yards and a touchdown to lead the offense.

Ravens 30, Seahawks 16

• Russell Wilson committed his first turnover of the season, while Lamar Jackson rushed for 116 yards and a touchdown. Both the Ravens and Seahawks are in competitive divisions that contain multiple contenders for the division title.

Saints 36, Bears 25

• The Saints continue to roll in the absence of Drew Brees. Latavius Murray rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns, while Michael Thomas caught nine passes for 131 yards. The Saints improve to 6-1 on the season.

Eagles 10, Cowboys 37
