Week 9 of the National Football League has just one game left, and that is the Monday Night Football game between the Los Angeles Chargers and New York Jets. They will finish the week tonight. Before that game, let’s take a look at the Top 5 games that went down on Sunday in the NFL:
Miscues Cost the Cowboys in Philadelphia
The Dallas Cowboys fell short of a two-point conversion, missed a touchdown by mere inches, and failed to score from the 5-yard line in the final moments, resulting in a 28-23 victory for the Philadelphia Eagles. Jalen Hurts was 17 of 23 for 207 yards and two touchdowns, and AJ Brown continued his hot streak with a touchdown. Despite the loss, CeeDee Lamb had an impressive game with 191 receiving yards.
Rookie Stroud Dynamite in Come from Behind Win
C.J. Stroud had a sensational performance, setting a rookie record with 470 passing yards and five touchdowns. His last-second touchdown pass to Tank Dell secured the victory for the Houston Texans, who now stand at 4-4, remaining competitive in the challenging AFC. Houston beat Tampa Bay by a final score of 39-37.
Dobbs Comes in and Leads Vikings to Victory
Joshua Dobbs, who was traded to the Minnesota Vikings mid-week, didn’t start but played a crucial role in leading his team to a 31-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Dobbs went 20 of 30 for 158 yards and two touchdowns, with the game-winning touchdown pass to Brandon Powell with just 27 seconds left. Minnesota beat Atlanta with a 31-28 win. The Vikings have now won four consecutive games and hold a 5-4 record, while the Falcons dropped to 4-5.
Chiefs Top Dolphins in Germany
In a hard-fought match in Frankfurt, Germany, the Kansas City Chiefs emerged victorious with a 21-14 win. Patrick Mahomes threw for 185 yards and two touchdowns, but the real story was the Chiefs’ defense holding the Dolphins’ passing game to just 193 yards. Tyreke Hill contributed 62 receiving yards, while Jaylen Waddle managed only 42. The Chiefs improved to a 7-2 record, while the Dolphins dropped to 6-2.
Ravens Smash Seattle
The Baltimore Ravens continued their impressive run, with Lamar Jackson not needing to throw for a touchdown but effectively leading the team to a 37-3 victory. Odell Beckham scored his first touchdown as a Raven, and their defense limited the Seattle Seahawks to just a field goal. Rookie Keaton Mitchell had a standout game with 138 yards and a touchdown on 9 carries.
