New Orleans 23 - Detroit 24(W)
With a late comeback, Detroit got the win they needed without star wide receiver Calvin Johnson still sidelined. Matt Stafford has been struggling without his top target and for most of this game there wasn't much of a difference. Both quarterbacks threw 40 or more passes as the running game wasn't there for most of the match, though the Saints had 6 different players gain some rushing yards.
Carolina 17 - Green Bay 38
Aaron Rodgers and the receiving core are looking to finally be on the same page as 9 different players hauled in a ball for some positive yards. What was more noticeable as how well the Packers defence was playing and preventing Cam Newton from doing much of anything until garbage time. Rodgers was 19/22 255yds and 3 scores while Newton was poor in his efforts, putting up just 17/31 205yds and a score and interception.
Cincinnati 0 - Indianapolis 27
Well there goes the talk of the Bengals being one of the best teams in the NFL, and without their stud wide receiver A.J Green not player, it makes you realize how good he really is. Andy Dalton couldn't find a receiver to save his life(minus the TE) let alone the endzone. On the other side, Andrew Luck recorded his 5th straight 300 yard performance, though it was the defence that really stepped up and made the game easy(-y+ier).
Cleveland 6 - Jacksonville 24(W)
They have done it! The Jacksonville Jaguars are the World Cham….ok maybe not, but hey at least they can say they aren't a win-less team right? It also looks like the Johnny Manzel hype is going to pick back up as Hoyer didn't even complete half of his 41 attempts while also failing to find the endzone. Denard Robinson was up to his college tricks again as he rushed for 127 yards and found the endzone once.
