NFL WEEK SIX- TOP PERFORMANCES
This Sunday of NFL action saw some great games and exciting finishes, with none better than the Minnesota Vikings hanging on to beat the Baltimore Ravens, 33-31 as kicker Steve Hauschka hooked a 44-yard field goal wide left as time expired.
Baltimore overcame a 27-10 deficit to lead 31-30, but with time still on the clock, Vikings' QB Brett Favre drove the team down the field and Ryan Longwell nailed a field goal to make the difference for the 6-0 Vikings.
The Buffalo Bills beat the New York Jets, sending the host team to their third straight loss, 16-13 in overtime... The Jacksonville Jaguars beat the winless St. Louis Rams in like fashion with a Josh Scobee 36-yard field goal in OT to win, 23-20.
