NFL Week 9: Recapping the Early Games


Another week, another Bengal loss. Obviously we will have more on that to come, but in the meantime here is a recap of the rest of the early games:

Baltimore 25, Cleveland 15:

The Ravens took a two touchdown lead in the first quarter, and a rout seemed inevitable. The Browns surprisingly rallied for 15 unanswered points to take a fourth quarter lead, but Joe Flacco hit Torrey Smith for a touchdown with under five minutes remaining to pull out the win.

Green Bay 31, Arizona 17:

Aaron Rogers threw four touchdown passes, including a 72-yard hook up with Tom Crabtree at the end of the third quarter. The Packers improve to 6-3, while the Cardinals drop to 4-5 and continue to sink out of playoff contention.

Chicago 51, Tennessee 20:

The Bears put up 28 points in the first quarter, scoring through the air, on the ground, on a blocked punt, and an interception return. Brandon Marshall had three touchdown receptions and the Bears continue to impress in moving to 7-1.

Indianapolis 23, Miami 20:

Andrew Luck had a monster game, setting a rookie record by throwing for 433 yards in leading the Colts to a narrow win in a game that had surprising playoff implications. Indianapolis now sits at 5-3 with a fairly easy upcoming schedule as they continue to make a push for the postseason.

Carolina 21, Washington 13:

The Panthers pulled out a win and effectively put the clamps on Robert Griffin III. This was a much-needed victory for Carolina and the embattled Cam Newton, who threw for one touchdown and ran for another.

Nov 4, 2012; Jacksonville, FL, USA; Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure (25) runs the ball in for a touchdown during the first half of the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at EverBank Field. Mandatory Credit: Melina Vastola-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit 31, Jacksonville 14:

Mikel Leshoure ran for three second quarter touchdowns, and the Lions cruised from there. The Lions move to 4-4 and continue to sit on the outskirts of the NFC wild card race.

Houston 21, Buffalo 9:

Matt Schaub threw for two touchdowns and the Texans defense kept the Bills out of the end zone in a workmanlike victory. Houston had to be happy to see struggling receiver Andre Johnson contribute 118 yards.
