Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL

The last time the Cincinnati Bengals and the Kansas City Chiefs met was last January in the American Conference Finals and against all odds, the former deprived the latter of a trip to the Super Bowl. . On Sunday, the two teams met on the 13th day of the NFL regular season. And the Bengals won again, curiously enough by the same score (27-24) as in January.

Cincinnati was able to count on Ja’Marr Chase, its star receiver, recovering from his hip injury. Running back Joe Mixon is still recovering from a concussion. Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow threw for 286 yards and two touchdown passes. Patrick Mahomes, his counterpart in Kansas City, was more discreet (223 yards, one TD). Late in the game, the Chiefs fumbled and missed a field goal. Their five game winning streak came to an end.

Lamar Jackson with knee injury

The quarterbacks were overdue on Sunday. San Francisco’s Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a broken foot during his team’s win against Miami (33-17). His season is over, which puts the 49ers in trouble as they already lost Trey Lance to injury at the start of the season. The interval was – correctly – provided by Brock Purdy. The defense continued its flawless season. Nick Bosa sacked Tua Tagovailoa, the Dolphins QB, three times, who was also intercepted twice and suffered a fumble. Miami also went on a five-game winning streak.

Watson’s mean return with Cleveland

Philadelphia and Minnesota keep winning. The Eagles did it in style, helping Tennessee (35-10) with a gala Jalen Hurts (380 yards, 3 TDs). The defense dealt Ryan Tannehill six sacks and limited Derrick Henry to 30 yards.

The Vikings beat the New York Jets with difficulty (27-22). QB Kirk Cousins ​​and receiver Justin Jefferson didn’t shine. And at the end of the game, the Jets missed the win and broke a yard short of the end zone.

Cleveland won in Houston (27-14) with, at its head, DeShaun Watson, its sultry quarterback, who was recruited last summer, but who had to serve an 11-week suspension after several accusations of sexual assault. Watson did not lead his team to victory. The defense, which scored two touchdowns, and the special teams, which scored one, are credited for this success.

The Los Angeles Rams, defending champions, still without injured Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp, lost to Seattle (27-23) and will end the season with a negative record. Without probably seeing the playoffs.

With Davante Adams (177 yards) and Josh Jacobs (144 yards) on fire, Las Vegas won its third straight against the Los Angeles Chargers (27-20). Something unusual in the NFL: the New York Giants and Washington tied (20-20). Finally, Dallas overcame Indianapolis (54-19), with five TDs scored in the final quarter. The day will end with New Orleans hosting Tampa Bay and Tom Brady on Monday.
