Quick Hits

Atlanta 43, Tampa Bay 28

The Bucs might have lost, but Mike Evans makes his case for catch (and subsequently, biggest hit) of the year

Detroit 22, Minnesota 16 (OT)

Minnesota blew another lead (and might not be as good as many thought) while Golden Tate brought the disrespect to win in overtime

Baltimore 21, Pittsburgh 14

The longstanding Steelers-Ravens rivalry was renewed, Ben Roethlisberger might have came back from injury a little too soon

Miami 27, NY Jets 23

Jay Ajayi rushed for only 111 yards this week; Ryan Fitzpatrick was injured for the Jets

Dallas 35, Cleveland 10

Cleveland looked overwhelmed, still has not won

Kansas City 19, Jacksonville 14

Travis Kelce is not a fan of the referees; the Chiefs held on for their sixth win of the season

NY Giants 28, Philadelphia 23

Odell Beckham makes another great catch; Eagles fall to last in division

Carolina 13, Los Angeles 10

The calls for Jared Goff as QB of the Rams keep growing louder as Case Keenum struggles; Cam Newton was swallowed whole

New Orleans 41, San Francisco 23

Drew Brees is on a tear at age 37; the 49ers had no chance at stopping the Saints offense

San Diego 43, Tennessee 35

Melvin Gordon had a career day as the Chargers offense fired on all cylinders

Indianapolis 31, Green Bay 26

The Colts keep their playoff hopes alive due to the success of Andrew Luck

Oakland 30, Denver 20

The Raiders took the division lead from the defending Super Bowl champs; the Broncos run defense struggled again

Seattle 31, Buffalo 25

A questionable call at the end of the first half mars a good performance by the Seahawks
