The Eagles also give up – Bills stop Giants at the goal line

The Eagles are running out of gas

When D’Andre Swift finished off a pass from Jalen Hurts in the middle of the second quarter to make it 14-3 for the Philadelphia Eagles, the sixth win for the team from the “City of Brotherly Love” seemed to be on its way. But the guests ran out of gas at MetLife Stadium in New York. It was the last points for Philadelphia that evening.

Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein let his team crawl ever closer with three consecutive field goals (12:14 at the end of the third quarter), and in the final period Breece Hall took advantage of the moment with an eight-yard run into the end zone. Because Randall Cobb also converted Zach Wilson’s short pass into a two-point conversion, the score was 20:14 for the Jets with 106 seconds left. Ultimately, too little time for a very flawed Jalen Hurts to turn the tables again. The Eagles QB opened the scoring with a short run to make it 7-0, but had three interceptions overall. The 280 yards of space gained in the air and the 47 on the ground didn’t help to give the Eagles a 6-0 win. This means that no team in the NFL is undefeated, after the San Francisco 49ers had already lost to the Cleveland Browns .

St. Brown shines in Tampa

On par with the Niners and Eagles: the Detroit Lions. Against the harmless Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-2), the team from the Motor City also made it 5-1. Jared Goff (30/44, 353 yards, 2 TD) kept his offense going in contrast to Baker Mayfield (19/34, 206, 1 INT), and particularly enjoyed the interaction with Amon-Ra St. Brown. The German caught a dozen passes for 124 yards in the 20:6 away win and crowned his performance with a 27-yard TD catch in the second quarter to make it 10:3. The game was later put on the line by Jameson Wiliams, who completed a 45-yard play in the end zone after a Goff pass (17:6).

Giants miss surprise at goal line

This thriller wasn’t necessarily expected: After their disappointing trip to London ( 20:25 against Jacksonville ), the Buffalo Bills (4-2) held their own against their neighbors New York Giants (1-5), but were able to score 14:9 but were not convincing for long stretches and had to fear for success until the very last move. Jones representative Tyrod Taylor (24/36 for 200 yards) gave the guests at Niagara Falls the chance to win together with Saquon Barkley (93 yards), who was fit in time. Kicker Graham Gano initially secured a 6-0 lead that lasted well into the fourth quarter.

Only then did Josh Allen (19/30, 169, 2/1) find the rhythm with his Bills offense and managed two touchdown passes that made the final score 14:9. However: The Giants reared up again in crunch time. Taylor led his colors to the goal line with two seconds left on the clock. On his last throw from the 1-yard line into the end zone, pass receiver Darren Waller had his hand tightly covered on the play equipment, but was unable to hold on to it. As in the entire game, the Giants ultimately failed to score a single touchdown despite forays into the red zone, making it the fourth defeat in a row for the lantern-bearers in the NFC East.

Kupp & Co. too strong for the Cardinals

In another Sunday game, the Los Angeles Rams (3-3) were able to equalize their record with an easy 26:9 win over the Arizona Cardinals (1-5). Matthew Stafford (15/24, 226 yards, 1 TD) and Cooper Kupp (seven catches for 148 yards, 1 TD) were too strong for Joshua Dobbs (21/41, 235 yards, 1 INT) and his colors.

Former champions New England Patriots are also 1-5, but at least played a close game to the host Las Vegas Raiders (3-3) only to end up losing 17:21. The Raiders regret the injury-related loss of playmaker Jimmy Garoppolo (14/22, 162, 1/1), who did not return after the break due to a back injury and was replaced by Brian Hoyer (102 yards).
