Kirk Cousins tallied 274 passing yards and two touchdowns before he left the game in Green Bay with a torn achilles.

Bills Survive Buccaneers 24-18 on TNF

In spite of the teams being separated by only six points in the final score this game really wasn’t that close. The Bills jumped out to a 24-10 lead in the third quarter thanks to a four yard pass from Josh Allen to Gabe Davis. The WR2 for Buffalo had his best game of the season, catching nine passes for 87 yards and a touchdown. The Bucs nearly pulled off a miraculous Hail Mary in the final seconds, but receiver Chris Godwin wasn’t able to turn around and track the ball in time. The Bills got a much-needed rebound victory after last week’s disaster in New England. This week, Buffalo faces off against AFC powerhouse Joe Burrow and the Bengals on Sunday Night Football.

Vikings’ Kirk Cousins Shines Before Tearing Achilles in 24-10 Win over Green Bay

The Vikings went into Lambeau Field and dominated through the first three quarters. Before leaving in the fourth quarter with what would later be revealed as a torn right Achilles–a season-ending injury– Kirk Cousins threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns. University of Miami alum t K.J. Osborn recorded eight catches for 99 yards for Minnesota in his best performance of the season. Things are not looking good for the Packers as Jordan Love continues to take a step back after a promising start to the season, throwing an interception in five straight games. The Vikings will enjoy their win for now but must face the reality that their season is effectively over with Cousins out the rest of the season

A.J. Brown Continues to Shine in Eagles 38-31 Victory Over Commanders

When you throw the ball in the direction of A.J. Brown, usually good things happen. This is best illustrated by Brown’s insane one-handed touchdown catch near the left pylon in the second quarter, a play which evoked memories of Odell Beckham’s famous catch. The Ole Miss standout has now eclipsed the 125 receiving yard mark in six straight games, breaking an NFL record. Despite this otherworldly consistency, Brown is not the NFL’s leading receiver; Tyreek Hill is still on pace for over 2,000 yards on the season. The Commanders came up short once again after their overtime defeat earlier in the season. Sam Howell looked great though, throwing for 397 yards and four touchdowns to one interception. Howell looks to build off that positive performance and remain one of the NFL’s success stories in 2023 with a Week 9 bout in Foxboro.

Burrow’s Improvement Continues in Bengals 31-17 Win Over San Francisco

After a sluggish and injury-riddled start to the season, many were quick to doubt Joe Burrow. Well well well…how the tables have turned. Burrow and the Bengals continued their positive momentum with a dominant second half performance against the 49ers. Burrow went 28-32 with 283 yards and three touchdowns, while ol’ reliable Ja’Marr Chase had another stellar performance, catching 10 passes for 100 yards and a TD. The 49ers have crashed and burned after a 5-0 start to the season. Brock Purdy has disappeared in the biggest moments in the past three contests and is going to need to right the ship with a banged up offensive supporting cast.

Chargers Dominate Bears on SNF 30-13

This game was never close as the Chargers took a 24-7 halftime lead and never looked back. Chargers fans must be feeling good after finally being able to breathe normally during their team’s game, as L.A. finally had a game decided by more than one score. Justin Herbert completed his first 15 passes and finished with 294 yards and three touchdowns. The Bears continue to look like a disaster and the wide open touchdown pass dropped by Velus Jones Jr. sums up their season perfectly. Head coach Matt Eberflus is now 5-20 during his tenure with the Bears and doesn’t seem to get better any time soon. Backup signal caller Tyson Bagent will once again start next Sunday against the Saints.

Lions Recover From Last Week With Comfortable Win Over Raiders

The Detroit Lions rebounded from their 38-6 pounding against the Ravens last week with a resounding 26-14 win over the Raiders. Fantasy managers can finally rejoice, as rookie RB Jahmyr Gibbs had a huge game, amassing 189 yards from scrimmage that culminated in a touchdown and he jumped into the stands to celebrate with the Detroit faithful. The Raiders continued to look like a mess as Davante Adams’s frustration officially boiled over. He was held to just one catch for 11 yards and the Raiders dropped to 3-5.
