Bills Score in Final Seconds, Defeat Vikings


Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.) -- Sammy Watkins caught a game-winning touchdown pass from Kyle Orton with one second left on the clock as the Buffalo Bills (4-3) snuck past the Minnesota Vikings (2-5), 17-16 on Sunday. 

Orton, a 10-year veteran, led an 80-yard drive in the final quarter to cap off an improbable victory for the Bills who turned the ball over four times. Buffalo also lost a pair of running backs in C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson to injury.

That did not deter the quarterback who overcame a lost fumble and interception of his own. The rookie Watkins finished the day with nine catches for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Orton kept the drive alive by converting a fourth-and-20 with a 24-yard pass to Scott Chandler. Two plays later, he found Watkins to convert on third-and-12.

"Any time you get a chance to go on a game-winning drive, it's awesome," Orton said. "We hung in there, made some mistakes, but in the end we got the win, and that was our goal."

The Vikings led 13-10 at halftime on a pair of Blair Walsh field goals sandwiched around a Cordarelle Patterson touchdown catch. The lead ballooned to six on Walsh's third field goal of the game in the fourth quarter after Minnesota had a first-and-goal on the seven.

Jaguars Stun Browns, Get First Win of Season


David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(JACKSONVILLE, Fla.) -- Denard Robinson rushed for a career-high 127 yards and a touchdown while the Jacksovnille defense held Cleveland to just 69 yards on the ground en route to a 24-6 Jaguars win on Sunday. It was the first win of the year for Jacksonville (1-6), snapping a nine-game losing streak.

The Browns (3-3) took a 6-0 lead with a pair of field goals from Billy Cundiff despite being inside the 20-yard line on both drives. They found themselves on the wrong side of the scoreboard just before halftime when Blake Bortles and Allen Robinson connected for a 31-yard touchdown pass.

Jacksonville added to their lead in the third quarter with a Josh Scobee field goal, the only points by either team in that period. The Jaguars let their defense do the rest, keeping the league's third-best rushing attack in check while forcing three turnovers. The victory was the first for the franchise since Dec. 15, 2013 when they beat the Houston Texans.

Only adding to the Browns' frustration was the inability to score on three interceptions of Bortles. Quarterback Brian Hoyer was just 16-for-41 passing with 215 yards while Ben Tate rushed for a team-high 36 yards.

Robinson, a star quarterback at Michigan in college, carried the ball 22 times and scored on an eight-yard scamper in the fourth quarter that put Jacksonville ahead 17-6.

Manning Surpasses Favre in Broncos Victory


Justin Edmonds/Getty Images(DENVER) -- Once again, Peyton Manning finds himself in the record books. The Denver Broncos quarterback threw four touchdowns in Sunday night's 42-17 win over San Francisco, giving him 510 career touchdown passes and surpassing Brett Favre's NFL record of 508.

"It is quite an honor," Manning said. "I do have great appreciation for quarterbacks who played this game throughout the years. It's very humbling, has taken a lot of hard work, a lot of people helped me get to this point."

The record-breaking pass came late in the second quarter on an eight-yard strike to Demaryius Thomas that put the Broncos (5-1) up 21-3 over the 49ers (4-3). Upon setting the mark, Manning's teammates had a little fun with the 38-year old, playing keep-away with the momento before eventually congratulating their quarterback.

"I can't believe they actually did it," chided Manning. "They sort of joked about it during the week. I'm a little bit hurt by it. The fact that they thought they could do it."

It took just 246 career games for Manning to break the record set by Favre in 302 career games. The 16-year veteran has thrown 110 touchdown passes in his two-plus years with the Broncos, whom he signed with in 2012 following neck surgery that threatened his career.

Rams Surprise Seahawks


Scott Boehm/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- The St. Louis Rams pulled out all the stops to beat their division rival Seattle Seahawks with crafty special teams play in a 28-26 win on Sunday.

Stedman Bailey fooled everyone on a 90-yard fake punt return and Benny Cunningham's 75-yard kickoff return on a squibbed kick that rolled into the end zone in the second quarter put the Rams up 21-3.

The Rams would not be done though, Cunningham's 18-yard reception from kicker Johnny Hekker late in the fourth quarter extended a drive and a late fumble recovery closed the game out.

"It was great execution by them on a couple different scenarios," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. "It made a huge difference in this game."

The Seahawks have now lost back-to-back games and sit at 3-3.

"Grateful for the effort, an entire team effort," Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said.  "That's a really good football team and that's an understatement."

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 313 yards and two touchdowns in the loss.

"We have a team that's full of fighters," Wilson said.  "There's nothing better than having your backs against the wall.  That's where we're at right now.  You just play 1-0 and try and focus on what you can control."

Brad Keselowski Survives Round, Wins at Talladega


Streeter Lecka/Getty Images For NASCAR(TALLADEGA, Ala.) -- Brad Keselowski is into the eliminator round after holding off Matt Kenseth at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday.

Keselowski needed to win in order to stay alive in the chase for the championship and took the lead during the final caution flag in the green-white checkered finish.

The win comes after last weekend's post-race brawl between Kenseth and Keselowski, but Keselowski will take a win no matter what.

"I know there's probably some people out there that aren't really happy I won. I can understand that. But I'm a man like anyone else and not real proud of last week," Keselowski said of last weekend's post-race brawl at Charlotte.  "But I'm real proud of today."

"It was funny how this racing world works out. I don't know why it is that way. I don't know why it seems like every week where there's either a fight in the garage or a mishap or something like that happens, those two cars and people end up together."

Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kasey Kahne, and defending Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson were all eliminated from the Chase for the Championship.

Jeff Gordon, a Hendrick teammate of the three who were eliminated, said it's tough to see them go out that way.

"Great teams, great drivers, great friends. I hate to see them not in there," Gordon said about Johnson, Earnhardt and Kahne. "I really thought the chances of two of them getting in were very good, and certainly one of them. I thought two of us would be in there, and I thought there's a decent chance three could be there."

Gordon, Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick, Carl Edwards, Ryan Newman, Denny Hamlin, and Kenseth are all moving onto the next round.

Murray Breaks Record as Cowboys Beat Giants 31-21


NFL via Getty Images(DALLAS) -- DeMarco Murray continues to lead the charge for Dallas as he rushed for his seventh straight 100-yard game Sunday in the Cowboys' 31-21 victory over the New York Giants.

In doing so, Murray broke Jim Brown's 56-year-old record of starting a season with six straight 100-yard games.

The Cowboys continue to showcase a balanced offense that they have lacked in recent years.

Tony Romo tossed three touchdowns on 279 yards passing, completing 17 of 23 passes. Second-year tight end Gavin Escobar reeled in two of Romo's touchdown passes. Dez Bryant is still a man on fire as he racked up 151 yards receiving.

After a scare in the second quarter in which Murray appeared to injure his ankle, he finished the day with 128 yards and one touchdown. 

Eli Manning put forth a valiant effort but it would not be enough.  Manning threw for 248 yards and three touchdowns. Rookie receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. continues to live up to his first round draft status as he hauled in two of Manning's touchdowns.

The Dallas Cowboys are now at 6-1 and host the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football next week.

New Orleans Road Woes Continue in Loss to Detroit


iStock/Thinkstock(DETROIT) -- The New Orleans Saints road losing streak moves up to seven as they lost to the Detroit Lions 24-23.

The Saints blew a 23-10 fourth quarter lead with less than four minutes remaining that saw Lions quarterback Matt Stafford toss two touchdowns.

Stafford threw a short pass to Golden Tate that saw the receiver break past three defenders. Seventy-three yards later the Lions had cut the Saints lead to 23-17. 

Drew Brees tried to lead a game clinching drive but was intercepted by Lions defensive back Glover Quin who returned the ball to New Orleans 14 yard line with 3:10 remaining.

The Saints defense held after the interception, but on a fourth down were called for defensive pass interference. With a second life, Stafford found receiver Corey Fuller for the go ahead score.

Saints head coach Sean Payton was not pleased after the game that saw his team commit 12 penalties.

"I thought the penalties ended up hurting us," Payton said. "I wasn't happy with how that game was officiated. I'll leave it at that, and yet that wasn't the reason in the end."

The loss leaves New Orleans at 2-4 with a tough matchup next week as they host the Green Bay Packers.

Virginia High School Football Player Dies on Field


iStockPhoto/Thinkstock(SOUTH HILL, VA) -- Another high school football player has passed away after an on-field collision.

After sustaining a hit, Jamond Salley, a junior from Park View High School in South Hill, Viginia, was carried to the sideline. While medical officials began to administer care to Salley on the sideline, he fell unconscious and started to suffer seizures.

Salley was transported to Community Memorial Hospital in South Hill; soon after, he was pronounced dead.

“Jamond was a strong student in both academics and as an athlete,” Mecklenburg County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. James Thornton said in a statement. “Members of his family, friends, and teachers have all shared one common trait of Jamond, he was very respectful. He was a student with a big heart and a smile that would instantly capture your attention.”

Salley is the fifth high school football player to die this year after an on-field collision, medical incident or suffering ill-effects duing a conditioning drill.

Officials have not yet determined the exact cause of death for Salley.
