It was a very exciting week in the NFL. Beginning with an AFC South showdown, the Texans pulled out a close victory against the Jaguars 27-25 with a controversial touchdown call.
The Jaguars put up a very good fight considering they had an inexperienced Jake Luton at the quarterback position. With arguably the best game of the week, the Panthers nearly beat the defending Superbowl champion Chiefs with an ending score of 33-31.
Keep your eyes on the Miami Dolphins who surprisingly have a 5-3 record, capitalizing on a 34-31 win over the now 5-3 Cardinals.
In an NFC south beatdown that almost no one expected, the Saints put out the playbook on Tom Brady. They showed that when faced with a strong defensive secondary, he struggles. His stats were 22/38, 209 pass yards, zero TDs, and three INTs. It was his worst loss ever. In a battered NFC east, the Giants beat the Washington Football Team 23-20 on a strong defensive showing, ending with an interception thrown by Alex Smith. Will they stick with him, or return to Dwayne Haskins?
Arguably, the biggest story right now happens to be the Cowboys in Steel City. The Pittsburgh Steelers have never gone 8-0 in franchise history. Yes, the team with six Super Bowl rings. Although they had a very ugly win over the depleted Cowboys, their star safety Minkah Fitzpatrick provided a late-game interception to preserve their undefeated season. They head to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals next.
