KANSAS CITY, MO – Clyde Edwards Hiller had a quick 63 yards and touchdowns on his return to play and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Dallas Cowboys for a 19-9 victory on Sunday.
Chris Jones and defense made life difficult for QB Dak Prescott and The Chiefs (7-4) took a fourth straight win. They showed a 4-0 record this season against opponents from the Eastern Conference of the National League.
“We’ve had a tough few weeks. Jones admitted that many of our players were injured, and things weren’t clicking. When you take everything into account, we were still competitive. To get everyone back and build that chemistry, I think that’s a huge part of our success now.”
Patrick Mahomes completed 23 of his 37 passes for a 260-yard gain. He struggled with interceptions and stutters, but his defense had the best performance of the season.
“There have been a number of ups and downs for everyone this season,” Mahomes said. There were games where we played well and led with a lot of points and others where we didn’t find a way to win. “
Charvarius Ward intercepted Prescott’s pass in the end zone in the closing moments of the first half and Chris Jones had three and a half sacks and caused confusion. Jon Snead sealed the match result with an interception late in the game.
Prescott was limited to 216 yards of air for the Cowboys, who had to lay off the services of several offensive players. Left tackle Tyron Smith was missing out for the third game in a row as wide receiver Amari Cooper tested positive for COVID-19. Receiver CeeDee Lamb suffered a concussion just before the break.
“We had 48 players who were healthy and ready to play,” Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said. There were many players who could not play. This is the NFL. This will happen for a season. “
Ezekiel Elliott, who appeared to hurt his ankle early in the game, carried the ball nine times for a 32-yard high. Rising linebacker Micah Parsons was the star of the match for the Cowboys (7-3), causing confusion and hitting Kessen.
I’m not disappointed, but angry. That’s for sure, Prescott insisted. Especially when you have the opportunity to play against a team that has reached the Super Bowl in the last two seasons. We have had the opportunity to show what we are capable of. Our team is flexible and we will keep fighting and improving. “
The Chiefs found their rhythm after a difficult streak in the first seven weeks of the campaign. They were 3-4 and were in the Western Division of the American League.
The Kansas City team eliminated turnovers and penalties that hampered their attack and the defense became very fierce in November, after some very difficult September and October.
Just talk to Prescott, who spent most of Sunday running from the Chiefs’ defensive players.
Mahomes cut the Cowboys’ defense to shreds in the first half. He coordinated an 86-yard attack streak that ended in a quick touchdown by Travis Kelsey. Mahomes then led a 65-yard line that ended with Edwards-Helaire’s middle finger.
The Cowboys responded only with a position from Greg Zorlin to return to the locker room 16-3 at the back.
Zurlin added two hits for the visitors in the second half. Harrison Boetker, for his part, managed to hit a field goal for the Chiefs. Then the two teams exchanged several mistakes.
Colt McCoy was great as a substitute for Keeler Murray, collecting 328 yards and two hits to lead the Arizona Cardinals to a 23-13 win over the Seattle Seahawks.
23 Al Karda – Seahawks 13
For the second year in a row, McCoy was called up as a rookie in Seattle and emerged victorious again. Last season, McCoy lined up with the New York Giants, but this year it was with the cards that he was called up to take over. Murray missed a third straight game with an ankle injury.
McCoy completed 35 of 44 assists and completely dominated his counterpart Russell Wilson who was starting for the first time at home since undergoing finger surgery. McCoy threw one-yard and two-hour touchdown passes to Zach Ertz in the first half, then played luck when a third-quarter video replay interception was called off and concluded the duel with a first-over 300-yard performance since 2014.
And scored cards (9-2) with offensive extensions of 92 and 82 yards in the first half, holding the ball for 16 minutes. In the fourth quarter, the Cards attack went another 7 and a half minutes, Matt Pratter missed his second field goal attempt at 36 yards.
After 20 consecutive offensive streaks without scoring, the Seahawks saw DeeJay Dallas finally score a leading two yards away with 7:08 left in the game. The Seahawks were then three points behind the cards at 16-13.
But McCoy wrapped up the game with another stunning streak, including a 20-yard pass to Erts for third and seven yards. James Conner completed a one-yard return in the end zone. Then he read the 2:20 clock and the fans began to leave the stadium.
Ertz finished his working day with eight receptions and 88 yards. Rondell Moore caught 11 assists. Cards chose a variety to fill in the blank for Deandre Hopkins.
With a 3-7 record, the Seahawks suffered a fifth loss in six games. Faced with a lifeless attack and defense unable to stop the opponent in a third position, Seattle fans repeatedly booed their team, losing for the fourth time at home.
Joe Mixon rushed for 123 yards and scored two goals to lead the Cincinnati Bengals to a 32-13 win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.
Well rested, the Bengals (6-4) quietly returned from a week off to end a two-game losing streak and return to racing in the Northern Division of the American Conference. In the case of the (5-5) Raiders, this is the third setback in a row since their week off. Then they were at the head of the western section of the American Conference.
Quarterback Joe Burrow completed 20 of his 29 passes for 148 yards and threw a touchdown pass for the Bengals. Rookie of the Year candidate Ja’Marr Chase has had three assists, including one in the end zone. He leads the NFL Junior team with eight touchdowns this season.
Bengals’ Evan Macpherson became the 13th player in history to score three field goals from 50 yards or more in the same game. McPherson finished the match with four field goals.
On the other side of the ball, the Bengals defense limited the raiders to 278 yards. This is the second time this season that she’s allowed less than 300 yards for an opponent’s attack.
Quarterback Derek Carr completed 19 passes in 27 attempts for 215 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. Tight end, Darren Waller had seven passes for 116 yards while his substitute Foster Moreau had one pass, allowing him to score a goal from 19 yards.
The Raiders failed to win the first game in their first six goals. Adding up in the previous game against the Kansas City Chiefs, it’s their 14th consecutive third game that yielded nowhere. It was an eight-yard pass from Carr to Hunter Renfrew two minutes before the end of the game that ended the disastrous streak.
Unfortunately for Carr, he struggled with two sacks in the next two games. The second made him lose the ball which was recovered by the Bengals who managed to achieve their victory.
Since their holiday week, in the eighth week of the calendar, the raiders’ rating was lowered 96-43 by their opponents.
