NFL Week 4 Scores & Standings

Posted on 3 Oct, 2016, by in NFL

The Denver Broncos remain undefeated in an impressive defensive display against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Pittsburgh Steelers got back to winning against the Kansas City Chiefs with 5 touchdown passes by Ben Roethlisberger, the Dallas Cowboys keep excelling with rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott running the ship very well against the San Francisco 49ers.

Miami Dolphins (1-3) 7  Cincinnati Bengals (2-2) 22: The Bengals kept getting to Ryan Tannehill, Andy Dalton had a blast with A.J. Green (173 yards, 1 touchdown) and it seems like Cincinnati are back on the horse, while the Dolphins are once again pondering their process.

Indianapolis Colts (1-3) 27  Jacksonville Jaguars (1-3) 30: The Jags felt right at home in London, leading 23-6 before the Colts made their comeback, but not one that was enough. Blake Bortles threw two touchdown passes, while Andrew Luck might be realizing the team around him is never going to be good enough.

Tennessee Titans (1-3) 20  Houston Texans (3-1) 27: The Texans stay perfect at home, despite two thrown interceptions by Brock Osweiler. They won thanks to special teams, with Will Fuller returning a punt for 67 yards, breaking the tie, and then his team lasted the Titans attempts of tying the game.

Cleveland Browns (0-4) 20  Washington Redskins (2-2) 31: Kirk Cousins had a terrific game with 3 touchdown passes (and an interception), while Matt Jones rushed for 117 yards and a score, as the Redskins scored twice in the fourth quarter to come back from 3 points behind.

Seattle Seahawks (3-1) 27  New York Jets (1-3) 17: Ryan Fitzpatrick keeps throwing interceptions, this time 3. Russell Wilson might be injured, but he didn’t look that way as he threw 3 touchdown passes, twice finding his running backs C.J. Spiller and Christine Michael in the end zone.

Buffalo Bills (2-2) 16  New England Patriots (3-1) 0: Simple way of saying how incredible this is: The Patriots haven’t been shut out since 2006, and haven’t been shutout at home since 1993, when they were playing in their previous stadium. Tyrod Taylor found LeSean McCoy for the game’s only touchdown.

Carolina Panthers (1-3) 33  Atlanta Falcons (3-1) 48: The Falcons might have a crappy defense, but Matt Ryan and Julio Jones are more than a handful for their opponents. Jones became the 4th receiver in NFL history with over 300 yards (300, one TD) while Ryan threw four touchdown passes and for 503 yards. Cam Newton was taken out with a concussion, as it teams are targeting his head more and more.

Oakland Raiders (3-1) 28  Baltimore Ravens (3-1) 27: Derek Carr had a terrific performance with four touchdown passes (three to Michael Crabtree), including one with 2:12 remaining in the game to come back from behind and win the game.

Detroit Lions (1-3) 14  Chicago Bears (1-3) 17: Brian Hoyer outplayed Matthew Stafford (two touchdowns to two interceptions), while Jordan Howard ran for 111 yards as the Bears won their first game of the season.

Denver Broncos 27 (4-0)  Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-3) 7: Things continue to look miserable for the Bucs, which isn’t surprising against the Broncos defense, while Paxton Lynch came in for Trevor Siemian and had no problem, throwing his first career touchdown. Winston threw two interceptions, and completed less than 50% of his throws.

Los Angeles Rams (3-1) 17  Arizona Cardinals (1-3) 13: The Rams are the next in line to witness how bad Carson Palmer has gotten, with Case Keenum throwing two touchdown passes and the defense forcing five turnovers by the Cards, including three interceptions, two of them by Drew Stanton.

New Orleans Saints (1-3) 35  San Diego Chargers (1-3) 34: The Chargers had a 34-21 lead with 8:39 to go in the fourth, but a Drew Brees pass to Michael Thomas put the Saints back in the game, and a one-yard John Kuhn touchdown run helped the Saints win for the first time this season.

Ezekiel Elliott touchdown

Dallas Cowboys (3-1) 24  San Francisco 49ers (1-3): The rookie duo of Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott didn’t seem phased by the two early touchdowns by the Niners. Prescott threw a couple of TD passes, Elliott ran for 138 yards and a touchdown.

Kansas City Chiefs (2-2) 14  Pittsburgh Steelers (3-1) 43: The Steelers demolish the Chiefs on the return of Le’Veon Bell, rushing for 144 yards. Ben Roethlisberger was almost flawless with 5 incompletions and 5 touchdown passes, building a 36-0 lead before the Chiefs actually started doing something.
