NFL: Browns 37 — Bengals 34
Another divisional rivalry that the Bengals needed to win was to climb out of the AFC North basement. The Steelers reign in this division as the only remaining undefeated team in the NFL.

Giovani Bernard’s three-yard pass from Joe Burrow late in the fourth quarter put the Bengals up by a field goal with 1:06 left on the game clock.

Codey Parkey missed point-after attempt.
NFL: Lions 23 — Falcons 22

In the second half, the Bills defense returned the favor and shut the Jets offense down. The Bills’ offense could only make four more field goals that won the game.
NFL: Washington 25 — Cowboys 3
The Dallas Cowboys are really missing their backbone when they lose Dak Prescott in week six. To make matters worst, their back-up quarterback Andy Dolton suffered a concussion.
The back-up to the back-up rookie Ben DiNucci came in and connected two out of three passes for 39 yards.
NFL: Chargers 39 — Jaguars 29
Chargers and the Jaguars are just about scrubbing the bottom of their perspective divisions, and both need a victory. The Chargers put 16 unanswered points on the board. At 7:46 in the second quarter,
Jaguars running back James Robinson ran a four-yard touchdown and then ran the ball in for the two-point conversion. With 0:11 left in the half, Robinson caught a nine-yard touchdown pass from Gardner Minshew to end the half with the Chargers leading 16-14.

It just was not enough to win while the Chargers scored four touchdowns and a field goal in the second half.
NFL: 49ers 33 — Patriots 6
To help you understand the kind of game the 49ers had against the Patriots, the 49ers running back Jeff Wilson rushed for three touchdowns and 112 yards on three carries. Cam Newton did not look anything like himself throwing three-interception. The 49ers scored four touchdowns and two field goals as they rolled over the patriots.
NFL: Monday Night Football – Rams 24 — Bears 10
The Rams’ defense suffocated Nick Foles and the Bears’ offense. Foles had two interceptions and was sacked four times. Jared Goff had two touchdown passes, and Malcolm Brown rushed for one more in the blowout win. The NFL’s No. 2 and No. 5 sack specialists were held to a half-sack by Donald and a full sack by Mack.
The Colts, Dolphins, Vikings, and Ravens all had a bye week in week seven in the NFL. We look forward to week eight, which will determine if the NFL will continue to have an undefeated team.
