Week 7 is upon us, and Sunday’s action got underway with a a Giants-Rams matchup overseas in London.
Here’s your guide to catching all of the action this week, and come back as games finish to get final scores.
Giants 17, Rams 10
Rams quarterback Case Keenum threw four interceptions in a defensive struggle in London, and the last one finished off LA with 50 seconds left.
Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie picked off Keenum in the end zone on third-and-10 from the Giants' 15-yard line, and the Rams dropped to 3-4 while the Giants went to 4-3.
Lions 20, Redskins 17
Matthew Stafford threw an 18-yard TD pass to Anquan Boldin with 16 seconds left to give the Lions a home victory. Redskins QB Kirk Cousins had scored on a 19-yard run with 1:05 left before Stafford drove Detroit for the winning score. The Lions’ victory broke Washington’s four-game winning streak and left both teams at 4-3.
Browns 31, Bengals 17
Bengals running back Jeremy Hill rushed nine times for 168 yards, including a 74-yard touchdown, as the Bengals won easily over the NFL’s only winless team. The Browns lost Cody Kessler to a concussion, forcing them to use their sixth quarterback of the season. Kevin Hogan completed just 12 of 24 passes for 100 yards and threw two interceptions.
Eagles 21, Vikings 10
The Eagles knocked off the NFL’s last unbeaten team as Sam Bradford’s dream season after getting traded from Philadelphia to Minnesota finally was derailed. The Vikings dropped to 5-1, and Bradford completed just 24 of 41 passes with one touchdown and one interception in an ugly game that included eight turnovers. Bradford was sacked six times.
Jets 24, Ravens 16
Jets quarterback Geno Smith was starting his first game of the season filling in for an ineffective Ryan Fitzpatrick, but Fitzpatrick had to replace Smith when Smith suffered a knee injury. Fitzpatrick ended up completing nine of 14 passes for 120 yards and a TD as the Jets rallied from a 13-7 deficit against the Ravens, who lost for the fourth straight time after a 3-0 start.
Chiefs 27, Saints 21
Quarterback Alex Smith didn’t put up the monster numbers Drew Brees did, but his mistake-free play led the Chiefs to a victory. Smith finished 17-of-24 for 214 yards and two TDs without an interception as Kansas City held off Brees (37-for-48, 367 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT) and improved to 4-2.
Colts 34, Titans 26
Andrew Luck topped 300 yards passing for the fourth time this season, racking up 353 yards and three touchdowns while completing 27 of 39 throws. T.Y. Hilton was his favorite target, finishing with seven catches for 133 yards, as the 3-4 Colts moved into a tie with the Titans for second place in the AFC South.
Dolphins 28, Bills 25
Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi became the fourth player in NFL history to run for at least 200 yards in consecutive games when he rolled up 214 on 29 carries against the Bills. Ajayi, a 2015 fifth-round pick, had just 187 rushing yards as a rookie but is up to 535 this season, including 428 in his last two games.

Raiders 33, Jaguars 16
Raiders coach Jack Del Rio beat his old team in Jacksonville, and Oakland (5-2) moved into sole possession of first place in the AFC West pending Denver’s Monday night game against the Texans. Michael Crabtree caught eight passes for 96 yards and a touchdown to lead the way for the Raiders.
Buccaneers 34, 49ers 17
A week after setting a career high with 101 rushing yards against the Panthers, Tampa Bay’s Jacquizz Rodgers ran for 154 in the Bucs’ easy win against the 49ers. San Francisco led 14-0 at the end of the first quarter but was outscored 34-3 from there. Rodgers, on his third team in six NFL seasons, has been filling in for injured starter Doug Martin.
Patriots 27, Steelers 16
The Patriots weren’t their sharpest, but they didn’t need to be with Pittsburgh unable to mount a serious offensive threat in the absence of injured quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. LeGarrette Blount’s 24 carries for 127 yards and two touchdowns were more than enough to allow New England to control the game against the team that cut him in 2014.
Chargers 33, Falcons 30 (OT)
The Chargers pulled off an upset on the strength of Melvin Gordon’s three rushing touchdowns and Philip Rivers’ 371 passing yards. Atlanta led 27-10 late in the first half, but the Falcons sent the game into overtime and won it on a 42-yard Josh Lambo field goal. Atlanta is 4-3 after a 4-1 start.
Seahawks 6, Cardinals 6
Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro missed a 24-yard field goal with a little more than three minutes left in overtime and then Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka added to the misery, missing a 28-yarder with 11 seconds left, resulting in this game going down as a tie.

Houston Texans at Denver Broncos, Monday 8:30 p.m. ESPN
Key matchup: Brock Osweiler vs. Denver’s secondary
Osweiler finally turned his game up a notch last week against the Colts, leading the Texans to a comeback victory. He’ll need to carry over that performance into Monday night’s game against the substantially tougher secondary Denver has. Receivers won’t have as much separation against Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr., making throwing windows much smaller.
Fun fact: The Broncos and Texans have met only five times with the Broncos winning three of those games. No team has won back-to-back games when facing each other, though the Broncos have a chance at doing so having won their most recent meeting.
