NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 6 Schedule and More
October 12, 2015
We’re coming off a very interesting Sunday of NFL action, and we’ve still got one more game to look forward to tonight. While we’re waiting on that one, let’s check out some of the notable players and situations out there in the news.
Giants-49ers Wrap-Up: Last night on “Sunday Night Football,” the Giants and 49ers posted a very entertaining game that came down to the final minutes. Eli Manning went a career-best 41-of-54 in a 30-27 comeback victory for the Giants. He’d throw for 441 yards and three touchdowns.
Odell Beckham would lead all receivers with 121 yards and a TD on seven receptions, but he’d have to watch from the sidelines for most of the team’s final drive, thanks to a nagging hamstring injury. We’ll have to watch him in practice to see how he bounces back from this latest setback.

The Patriots returned from their bye this week and proceeded to destroy the injured Cowboys in Dallas. Tom Brady threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns on 20-of-27 passing in the 30-6 win, with Julian Edelman logging 120 yards and a score on four receptions. That brings the Pats to 4-0 and drops Dallas to 2-3.
The Bears have a flair for the dramatic the past couple of weeks. After a last-second win in Week 4, they repeated the feat in an 18-17 victory over the Chiefs yesterday.
Jay Cutler tossed for 252 yards and a pair of touchdowns, leading his team back from a 17-3 deficit early in the third quarter.
That’s two in a row for the Bears, who are 2-3 on the season. The Chiefs continue to flounder at 1-4.
In another of yesterday’s tight games, the Bengals launched a comeback of their own to take the Seahawks in overtime.
Cincinnati was down by 17 points in the fourth quarter and rallied to a 27-24 victory. Andy Dalton threw for 331 yards and a pair of scores in that one.
Cincinnati is now 5-0 for the first time since 1988, and the Seahawks fall to 2-3.
