Munich – Before the Kracher duel (now live on ProSieben MAXX and in the live stream on ran.de) between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Dallas Cowboys is on the program, things were already hot at the 7 p.m. games:
Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills 41:15
The Indianapolis Colts and Jonathan Taylor got off to a much better start to an entertaining game. The running back posed problems for the defense of the Buffalo Bills that evening and ended up with 214 scrimmage yards and five (!) Touchdowns.
Quarterback Carson Wentz also delivered a flawless game and threw for 106 passing yards and a touchdown. After a nice pass to the towering Taylor, he gave the Colts a 14-0 lead early on.
The Bills, on the other hand, struggled for a long time against a poisonous Colts defense. Quarterback Josh Allen made a bad interception and had trouble getting the offensive going.
It was not until the second quarter that Allen and Co. slowly thawed out and made it onto the scoreboard after a nice pass from the playmaker to wide receiver Stefon Diggs. At the end of the game, Allen had 209 passing yards and two touchdowns – but also made two interceptions.
As a result, the Bills’ chain of errors did not end. After a punt return fumble from Isaiah McKenzie, Taylor scored his third touchdown of the day. In the second half, Taylor continued to turn up and added two more touchdowns.
Except for cosmetic results, the Bills couldn’t do too much for the rest of the season. Due to the defeat, Allen and Co. fall back to 6-4, while the Colts improve to 6-5 and are getting closer and closer to the playoff positions.
New Orleans Saints at Philadelphia Eagles 29:40
Clear matter between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New Orleans Saints. Eagles playmaker Justin Fields confirmed his rising form and put on strong numbers with a total of 216 yards and three touchdowns.
A Pick Six from Eagles cornerback Darius Slay made for a clear 27: 7 halftime score. Rookie receiver Devonta Smith also brought the fans to ecstasy with some spectacular catches.
With the Saints, who again had to do without star running back Alvin Kamara, the offensive only ran hot towards the end. Quarterback Trevor Siemian had big problems for a long time and ended up with 214 passing yards and three touchdowns.
The Saints are now at 5-5 after the clear clap, while the Eagles continue their chase and are now at 5-6.
Miami Dolphins at New York Jets 24:17
Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa led his team to a narrow victory over the New York Jets. The playmaker was at the end of the game with 273 passing yards and two touchdowns, but also made an interception.
On the other hand, veteran Joe Flacco also delivered a strong game. With 291 passing yards and two touchdowns, the 36-year-old experienced a second spring, but could not prevent the defeat in the end.
The Jets are still with just two wins after their eighth loss, while the Dolphins continue their chase and improve to 4-7.
Washington Football Team at Carolina Panthers 27:21
A tight fit between the Carolina Panthers and the Washington Football Team. Returning Cam Newton kept his Panthers in the game for a long time, but could not prevent the narrow defeat.
The former MVP delivered a terrific performance with 189 passing yards and two thrown touchdowns as well as 46 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown. Star running back Christian McCaffrey convinced with 119 scrimmage yards.
The performance of his counterpart Taylor Heinicke was no less impressive. The Washington playmaker laid up 219 passing yards and led his team to victory with three touchdowns thrown. Wide receiver Terry McLaurin provided the next strong performance with 103 receiving yards and a touchdown.
Due to the defeat, the Panthers slide down to 5-6 and thus out of the playoff ranks, while the football team remains in the middle of the table with 4-6.
Detroit Lions at Cleveland Browns 10:13
The game between the Lions and the Browns was definitely not a football treat. Both sides made a few mistakes, so that the game developed into a turnover festival.
Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield continued to struggle with multiple injuries and ended up with 176 passing yards and a touchdown on two interceptions. With a nice trick play that led to the touchdown, wide receiver Jarvis Landry was able to provide at least one of the few offensive bright spots.
The Lions had to do without starting quarterback Jared Goff, who was absent due to injury. For him, backup Tim Boyle had to play, who made a horror appearance with 77 passing yards and two interceptions. Running back D’Andre Swift convinced the Lions with 136 rushing yards and a touchdown.
The Lions are still 0-9-1 without a win due to the defeat, while the Browns have a 6-5 record.
San Francisco 49ers at Jacksonville Jaguars 30:10
Clear affair between the 49ers and the Jaguars. San Francisco had no problems with the defense of the Jaguars, so Jimmy Garoppolo brought another good performance to the field. The veteran ended up with 176 passing yards and two touchdowns.
The downward slide of the Jacksonville Jaguars, however, continues. Number one pick Trevor Lawrence did his best but couldn’t prevent defeat with 158 passing yards. Only in “Gargbage Time” Jacksonville got a touchdown through running back James Robinson.
The 49ers improve to 5-5 with the win – the Jaguars stand at 2-8.
Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans 22:13
Wrong world in the exchange of blows between the Tennesse Titans and the Houston Texans. While the Titans did not go together offensively, Texans quarterback Tyrod Taylor led his team to a surprising victory.
The signal caller convinced through the air and in the running game and put on a total of 135 yards and two touchdowns. With the Titans, however, quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a used day. This is symbolized by an interception in the Redzone, which the Texans almost carried back to the touchdown.
Tannehill ended up with 323 passing yards and a touchdown and four crashing interceptions. Even the last strong defense of the Titans could not build on their performance and had little to oppose Taylor and Co..
With the surprising defeat, the Titans are now at 8-3, while the Texans improve to 2-8.
Baltimore Ravens at Chicago Bears 16:13
Due to a viral illness, the Baltimore Ravens had to do without franchise quarterback Lamar Jackson. Rookie Tyler Huntley started for him, standing at 220 passing yards at the end of his debut.
The Jackson replacement did well in an uneventful game – he also played 40 rushing yards. The Ravens often use it similarly to the superstar. For a long time, two field goals from Justin Tucker were the only points in the game.
On the other hand, rookie quarterback Justin Fields had big problems against the Ravens defense. The young playmaker ended up with only 79 passing yards and made a bad fumble in the first half – due to an injury, he had to leave the game early.
After two touchdowns from Andy Dalton, who took over for Fields, the Bears sniffed at victory. Thanks to a touchdown from Devonta Freeman 22 seconds before the end, the Ravens saved the narrow away win over time.
