If you turned on your television at 7 a.m. and seen a game on you were not dreaming. It was the London Bowl between the (3-5) Denver Broncos, who defeated the (2-6) Jacksonville Jaguars 21-17. It was reported a record crowd of 86,000 jammed Wimbley Stadium. Broncos’ offense showed up scoring three touchdowns in the red zone ending a four-game slide. Defensively, the Broncos defense created scoring opportunities as QB Russell Wilson tossed for 252 yards and a score for the win. Meanwhile, Jaguars RB Travis Ebenne had gotten loose rumbling for 165 yards in the loss.

A surprising start for the (4-4) Atlanta Falcons as they edged the (2-6) Carolina Panthers 37-34 in a high-flying offensive affair. Falcons QB Marcus Mariota is raising eyebrows tossing for 258 yards and three touchdowns for the victory.

Speaking of high-scoring affairs, the (6-2) Dallas Cowboys soared past the (3-5) Chicago Bears 49-29. Cowboys RB Tony Pollard replaced an injured Ezekiel Elliott. A great replacement as Pollard dashed for 131 yards of rushing and three touchdowns to “seal the deal” for the Cowboys.

He is back, referring to the return of the (5-3) Miami Dolphins Tua Tagovailoa who help defeat the (1-6) Detroit Lions 31-27. Detroit commanded a ten-point lead at halftime; however, the Dolphins fourteen-point third quarter diminished the Lions for the rest of the contest. Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill was the star collecting 188 yards of receptions. Teammate Tua Tagovailoa has a masterful day completing 382 yards and three scores for the win.

Speaking of surprises, how about the (6-1) Minnesota Vikings who defeated the (3-5) Arizona Cardinals 34-26. Cardinal QB Tyler Murray’s 326 yards of passing and three scores were not enough. However, Vikings RB Delvin Cook rumbled for 111 hard fought yards and a score placing his team on top.

“I bet the odds makers in Las Vegas did not see this coming,” noted the Captain. As the (3-5) New Orleans Saints blanked the (2-6) Las Vegas Raiders 24-0. Saints back up QB Andy Dalton connected on 226 yards of passing and two scores aided by the return of RB Alvin Kamara’s 62-yard rushing one score performance.

Evening their record at (4-4) are the New England Patriots who defeated the much improved (5-3) New York Jets 23-17. Jets QB Zack Wilson had a great day completing 365 yards of passing and two touchdowns. However, a three-interception day is certainly a loss these days. Patriots QB Matt Jones returned from injury tossing 194 yards and a score for the victory.

Still undefeated are the (7-0) Philadelphia Eagles who routed the (2-6) Pittsburgh Steelers 35-13. Eagles QB Jalen Hurts simply overmatched the Steelers defense tossing for 285 yards and a whopping four touchdowns. Aided by teammate WR AJ Brown, who was acquired from the Titans, collected 156 yards and three scores to assist in the victory.

Speaking of the Titans, if your starting quarterback is injured, simply hand the ball to superstar RB Derrick Henry. That is what happened as the Tennessee Titans improve to (5-2) with a 35-13 rout of the (2-6) Pittsburgh Steelers. Titans RB Derrick Henry was unstoppable rumbling for an amazing 235 yards on the ground and two scores.

On a two-game winning streak with their backup quarterback are the (4-4) Washington Commanders. QB Tyler Heinicke’s 279 yard and one score passing performance was all that was needed to edge the (3-4-1) Indianapolis Colts 17-16. Colts starting QB Matt Ryan was benched but did not improve their winning chances. Commanders QB Taylor Heinike tossed a 65-yard completion to the one-yard line late in the fourth quarter sealed the win for the Commanders.

Improving to (4-4) are the San Francisco Forty Niners who routed the (3-4) defending champion Los Angeles Rams 31-14. Newly acquired RB Christian McCaffrey from the Panthers was just what the Niners ordered. For the first time since 2005 McCaffrey ran, threw and caught a touchdown pass. Usually, it is the injured WR Debo Samuel who conducts this performance. Niners QB Jimmy Garoppolo tossed 235 yards of completions and two scores to aid the win.

Two teams off a great start are the (5-3) Seattle Seahawks who upset the (6-2) New York Giants 27-13. Seahawks QB Gino Smith was the star completing 212 yards and two touchdowns to seal a win for his team.

A dominating performance by (6-1) Buffalo Bills who handily defeated the (3-5) Green Bay Packers 27-17. However, the 143-yard running performance of Packers RB Aaron Jones was not enough to succumb a win against the powerhouse Buffalo Bills.
