NFL Updates: Cowboys' Big Win, Week 7 Schedule and More
October 14, 2013
It was yet another exciting set of Sunday games across the NFL yesterday, and we’ve still got one more Week 6 matchup headed our way in the coming hours. While we’re waiting on the Colts and Chargers to take the field on “Monday Night Football,” let’s take a look at some of the noteworthy players and storylines out there this morning. Here’s the latest.
Redskins-Cowboys Notes: Defense and special teams carried the Cowboys to victory in this one, as Dallas got a much-needed 31-16 victory over their divisional rival Redskins. Dwayne Harris posted 222 return yards in a breakout performance, but the Cowboys may have lost RB DeMarco Murray for the immediate future. He went down with a knee injury and was later diagnosed with an MCL sprain. We’ll find out today how bad it is.

What We Learned on Sunday: The NFL year is a learning process, and it can teach us something new each week. Let’s take a quick look at yesterday afternoon’s scores and highlight the takeaways from each matchup.
Packers 19; Ravens 17: Aaron Rodgers can lose two of his starting wide receivers and still toss over 300 yards in a game.
Bengals 27; Bills 24: Who would have thought that the most exciting game of the day would come from here? The Bills just can’t catch a break, though.
Lions 31; Browns 17: Just when you thought the Browns were emerging as a legitimate threat, they lose their grip. Just pass it to Jordan Cameron, guys. Every play.
Rams 38; Texans 13: See? The Texans don’t need Matt Schaub to throw a pick-6; T.J. Yates can do it, too.
Chiefs 24; Raiders 7: The Chiefs are undefeated; who would have thought? That defense is scary good.
Panthers 35; Vikings 10: Minnesota trailed the entire time on a very emotional day. We still don’t know what to make of the Panthers.
Steelers 19; Jets 6: Big Ben used his veteran know-how to pound the Jets secondary into submission and finally get a win.
Eagles 31; Buccaneers 20: Backup QB Nick Foles stated his case with four total touchdowns. QB controversy on the way? Again?
Broncos 35, Jaguars 19: The Jaguars easily cover that huge 27-point spread, and it’s likely the last time you’ll see one that large for a while.
Seahawks 20, Titans 13: We’re still not completely sold on Seattle, but hey, they keep winning.
Patriots 30, Saints 27: Note to New Orleans: If you give Tom Brady three chances to win the game, he will win the game. The Saints offense lost this one.
49ers 32, Cardinals 20: The Niners took a tight game in a division that’s starting to get as competitive as we thought it would be.
NFL Week 7 Schedule: Though Week 6 isn’t officially in the books just yet, for most of the league it’s time to start looking forward to Week 7 in the NFL. With that in mind, here’s the full schedule of upcoming games, as well as the broadcast times and TV networks you can catch your favorite teams on.
