NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 10 Schedule and More
November 9, 2015
Week 9 in the NFL isn’t quite finished up yet, but for most of the teams out there it’s time to start looking ahead to Week 10. That said, let’s check out some of the headlines out there and see what’s happening across the league.
Eagles-Cowboys Wrap-Up: The Cowboys are flailing without starting QB Tony Romo, and though they played much better against their division rival Eagles last night on “Sunday Night Football,” they still dropped their sixth straight game.
This one took overtime to decide a 33-27 Philly victory. Sam Bradford and Jordan Matthews hooked up on the decisive score in OT on the first possession of the extra period.
The Eagles move up to a .500 record at 4-4. Meanwhile, Dallas will have at least one more game without Romo (collarbone) and sit at 2-6.

Perhaps the biggest upset in a crazy Week 9 yesterday was the Colts’ 27-24 victory over the visiting Broncos. Andrew Luck bagged a pair of touchdown passes here, while veteran Adam Vinatieri nailed a 55-yard field goal in the fourth to give Indy the lead for good.
The Colts halted a three-game skid with the win and stay No. 1 in a horrible AFC South. This should be a great lift for them moving forward.
Meanwhile, Peyton Manning failed to break a pair of Brett Favre records yesterday, one for regular-season wins and the other for the NFL’s career passing yards mark. He still needs three yards for that one; he’ll get it in Week 10.
The Steelers and Raiders provided a lot of fireworks in Pittsburgh’s 38-35 nail-biter victory. Chris Boswell provided the decisive field goal with just two seconds left, giving Pittsburgh a 5-4 record. The team lost Ben Roethlisberger to a foot injury in the fourth quarter, however.
On the other side, Derek Carr continued his hot statistical run with 301 yards and four touchdowns. Oakland is 4-4.
Yesterday’s other OT game featured the Saints and Titans. Tennessee got the win 34-28 on a 5-yard TD by Anthony Fasano from Marcus Mariota. The victory halts a six-game slide for the Titans.
Meanwhile, the Saints couldn’t hold a 21-10 lead. Each team missed a field goal in the last two minutes of the fourth quarter.
