1 Pats Win AFC Title game preview
New England won a 43-40 shootout to hand Kansas City its first loss of the season. And I hope you bet the over. But there’s no doubt that when these teams are on, they are clearly the two best the AFC has to offer. Brady is still the GOAT, but with Mahomes, Hunt and Hill, the Chiefs have a super-talented young trio that can put up numbers on anyone.

2 Steelers’ Controversial Win
Pittsburgh showed some ‘Steelers of old’ resilience today in coming back to knock off the Bengals with less than 20 seconds to play, but the touchdown was marred by a missed call on a clearly illegal block.

4 Cowboys KO Jags
Conor McGregor was on hand and things went a lot better for the Cowboys than they did for the Notorious one against Khabib Nurmagomedov. Dallas head coach Jason Garrett was under pressure this week but he had his men ready to play today.

5 Bucs Nearly Score A Winning Try
Jameis Winston and Co. nearly pulled off the play of the year (decade?) with a last-ditch, rugby-style effort that only came undone on a DeSean Jackson ‘handling error.’

7 Sack Party In Nashville
Tennessee’s offense is bad at the best of times, but Baltimore limited them to just 7 first downs and 106 total yards, and sacked Marcus Mariota 11 times, a new Ravens’ franchise record.

8 Raiders Get 3 Points At Wembley
Oakland and Seattle played in London’s Wembley Stadium and the Raiders came away with 3 points. No, not the win, 3 total points for the entire game…a demoralising 27-3 loss for David Carr and Co.

9 Thielen Good in Minnesota
Minnesota’s Adam Thielen, the undrafted kid out of Minnesota State, continues to carve up the league’s secondaries. He had 11 catches today for 123 yards and a touchdown and has done something that hasn’t been done in 51 years.
Adam Thielen is the 2nd player in NFL history with 100 receiving yards in each of team’s first 6 games of the season, joining Charley Hennigan in 1961 (Oilers), per @EliasSports.

10 Rams Still Unbeaten
The Rams survived high altitude, pregame snow and a feisty Denver team to remain undefeated. (Note: 208 yards rushing from Todd Gurley didn’t hurt).
