NFL - Week Six Review

Quick Hits -  The Cincinnati Bengals stayed undefeated by going on the road and beating the  Buffalo Bills, 34-21 as QB Andy Dalton had three touchdown passes . . .  Denver also remained unbeaten with a 26-23 overtime win against the stubborn Cleveland Browns even though QB Peyton Manning threw three interceptions. Kicker Brandon McManus made the 34-yard game winning field goal . . .  The Pittsburgh Steelers were down to the third string quarterback, but it didn't matter as they toppled the visiting Arizona Cardinals, 25-13 behind two scoring passes from QB Landry Jones to wide receiver Martavis Bryant . . .  Detroit won for the first time in 2015 at the expense of the Chicago Bears, 37-34 in OT as Matt Prater drilled the winning kick from 27 yards out to go with four TD passes by QB Matthew Stafford  . . .  The New York Jets rode the arm of the bearded wonder, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who had two touchdown passes and an 18-yard TD run to lead the way in a 34-20 thrashing of the visiting Washington Redskins.

TOP RUSHERS FOR WEEK SIX  - Chris Ivory (NY Jets) 146 yards and one TD; Lamar Miller (Miami) 113 yards and one TD; Devonta Freeman (Atlanta) 100 yards and one TD;  James Starks (Green Bay) 112 yards and two TD (one receiving).

TOP PASSERS FOR WEEK SIX - Philip Rivers (San Diego) 503 yards and two TD;  Carson Palmer (Arizona) 421 yards and one TD (two INT); Matthew Stafford (Detroit) 405 yards and four TD (one INT); Jay Cutler (Chicago) 353 yards and one TD (one INT); Andrew Luck (Indianapolis) 312 yards and three TD; Tom Brady (New England) 312 yards and three TD (one INT).

Andy Dalton
Heftyinfo NFL co-Players of the Week - Andy Dalton (Cincinnati Bengals QB)  had three touchdown passes and 243 yards to help lead his team to another win and a 6-0 start for the season.
Philip Rivers
Philip Rivers (San Diego Chargers QB) did all he could in a loss by throwing for
over 500 yards and two scores.

Noteworthy - Chargers QB Philip Rivers was nearly beside himself following his team's 27-20 loss at Green Bay after he threw for 503 yards and completed 43 passes in 65 attempts with two touchdowns and no interceptions, which was a record for completions by a quarterback in a loss . . .  Carolina QB Cam Newton led his team to a comeback 27-23 win at Seattle as he threw the game-winning 26-yard scoring pass to tight end Greg Olsen with just 32 seconds remaining . . . The Seattle Seahawks slipped to 2-4 for the season and all four losses have seen the 'Hawks and their famed 'Legion of Boom' defense cough up the lead in the final quarter, including a 17-point lead last weekend . . .  The New England Patriots beat the Indianapolis Colts, 34-27 in the Sunday Night Football game, but it wasn't the beat down many expected the Pats to deliver to the Colts following their first meeting since the infamous "deflate gate" AFC title game last January . . .  The Monday Night Football game saw the Philadelphia Eagles win a lackluster game 27-7 over the New York Giants to force a tie for first place in the NFC East division with both teams having 3-3 records.
