To start with a downer, the Bengals laid an egg in Cleveland as they fell to 3-3. In the loss to the Browns, Andy Dalton threw for 381 yards, but his three touchdown pass performance was ultimately marred by the matching three interceptions. Unfortunately for the Bengals, Brandon Weeden celebrated his birthday by having an offensive field day in the second half, bringing the score to a final of 34-24, and the Browns first win of the season.

In Baltimore, a kick-off return for a touchdown proved to be the difference as Tony Romo’s two-point conversion attempt failed with 36 ticks left on the clock. The score of 31-29 brings the Ravens to a 5-1 record after six weeks of football, while the Cowboys are dealt another blow to their playoff aspirations this year.

Atlanta remains a perfect 6-0 after falling behind early to the Raiders. A late 55-yard field goal put them on top as the game ended, and the Raiders went to the locker room having played tough, but adding another loss to their record. The Falcons aren’t flashy, but they definitely figure out ways to win football games.

After a two-point conversion put the Rams within a field goal of tying the Dolphins, Miami was able to hold on after a strong defensive outing by both sides. After the Rams took a 6-0 lead into the second quarter, the Dolphins scored 17 straight points, and never looked back. They match the Rams with a 3-3 record at game’s end.
