LeSean McCoy, playing with cracked ribs, had 92 yards on 18 carries at San Francisco.
The Jaguars became the latest team to plaster the Bills defense with 200 yards rushing. Maurice Jones-Drew had 84 of those yards on 19 carries. Sixth-round rookie Deji Karim added 70 yards on 15 carries. Karim also had a 51-yard kick return.
The Bills have allowed at least 150 yards rushing in 13 of their last 19 games.
Marcedes Lewis caught a pair of touchdowns for the Jags. Frustrated No. 1 receiver Mike Sims-Walker also got into the end zone (his second TD on the year). Sims-Walker, who was blanked for the second time last week, finished with four receptions for 46 yards.
Derrick Harvey got half a sack for the Jags. (Is it sad that this felt necessary to report?)
Cedric Benson topped the century mark on the ground for the first time this season, rushing for 144 yards against the Bucs.
Terrell Owens went over 100 yards for the second week in a row, while Chad Ochocinco had just 20 yards on three catches. Ochocinco has been held to three or four catches and less than 60 yards receiving in each game since the team’s Week 1 blowout loss to the Patriots.
In the Bengals-Bucs game, the starting safeties for both teams finished first and second in total tackles for their teams.
If you’re wondering who will replace Mark Clayton as the go-to guy in St. Louis…Danny Amendola was targeted 19 times against Detroit.
The Rams were awful giving up 44 points, but on the bright side, it was the first time all season that they’ve allowed more than 17 points. (For what it’s worth, the defense was technically only responsible for 30 of the points Sunday.)
Adam Vinatieri knocked in four field goals for the Colts on Sunday (none of them Super Bowl game-winners, though). It marked the 16th time in the likely future Hall of Famer’s career that he’s made at least four kicks.
Until Sunday, the Redskins had not won back-to-back games since Weeks 7 and 8 of the 2008 NFL season.
Thanks to a 71-yard scamper, Brandon Jackson needed just 10 carries to post a career-high 115 yards rushing against the Redskins.
In addition to a crucial overtime interception, LaRon Landry had a team-high 13 tackles. The fourth-year safety is having a career year playing in Jim Haslett’s scheme.
Jonathan Stewart had 30 yards on eight carries. More noteworthy is that it was his second most productive game on the season.
Baltimore outrushed Denver by 194 yards.
Days after complaining about his role in the offense, T.J. Houshmandzadeh was targeted only three times. Hey, at least Anquan Boldin was only targeted three times. Housh had two catches, 24 yards. Boldin had one catch, eight yards.
Andre Johnson had five catches for 95 yards, but he was held to just one catch for most of the afternoon. His numbers game in quasi-garbage time.
Osi Umenyiora notched two more sacks. He has six on the season, five in the last two games.
After the loss at Arizona, the Saints are just 7/19 in the red zone this season.
Saints Cardinals nearly gave us the perfect time of possession balance. Saints: 30:01; Cardinals: 29:59.
Beanie Wells got 20 carries but mustered just 35 yards.
Michael Huff had 11 tackles and a sack for the Raiders. Of course, he was also part of a secondary that yielded 431 yards through the air.
