NFL Week 4 highlights: Chiefs, Rams, Eagles, Cowboys win

Updated Oct. 1, 2023 11:32 p.m. ET

Week 4 of the NFL is here, and football fans were in for a treat this weekend!

The Jacksonville Jaguars kicked things off in London by defeating the Atlanta Falcons at Wembley Stadium in the first of five international games slated for the 2023 season.

Here are the top moments!

FINAL: Kansas City Chiefs 23, New York Jets 20


Hometown cookin'

Isiah Pacheco went to school at nearby Rutgers, and he gave his a hometown stadium a hearty welcome with this 48-yard house call.

Gray area

Kansas City's offense was humming in the first quarter, and it went up 17-0 courtesy of another masterful drive from Patrick Mahomes, who found Noah Gray for his first TD of the night.

Going deep!

When in doubt, air it out. Zach Wilson struggled early on, but he found some light on this deep heave to the Allen Lazard, which set up a Jets field goal.

Defense to offense

The Jets flew back into the game with a slew of huge plays to close the gap to five. First, Ashtyn Davis picked off Mahomes …

… before Wilson put up a floater to C.J. Uzomah for the TD.

Tie game!

After falling behind 17-0, the Jets made it a 20-20 ballgame on a seven-play, 76-yard drive to open the second half. Wilson fired a dot to Lazard for the TD before making things happen with his feet for the two-point conversion.

Loose ball!

Things remained knotted until the fourth quarter, and after going up three with a field goal, the Chiefs earned another chance after Wilson mishandled a snap in the backfield.

Ice in his veins

There's just something about that Mahomes guy. The Chiefs didn't give New York another opportunity after collecting the fumble, ticking 7:24 off the clock and icing the game on this smooth slide from Mahomes. K.C. was able to enter into victory formation after the play, as New York had spent its remaining timeouts.

FINAL: Los Angeles Chargers 24, Las Vegas Raiders 17

Taking it himself

Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert ran in a 12-yard touchdown to open the game.

Sneak it in

Raiders quarterback Aidan O'Connell — who's starting in place of Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) — executed a quarterback sneak at the goal line for the touchdown.


Five plays after the Chargers recovered an O'Connell fumble, Herbert hit wide receiver Keenan Allen for a 7-yard touchdown. The Chargers then took advantage of another O'Connell fumble, eventually punching the ball into the end zone. Los Angeles led 24-7.

Mack attack

Chargers linebacker Khalil Mack recorded his SIXTH sack of the game early in the fourth quarter.

Chargers end it

The Raiders got to within one score and forced the Chargers to turn it over on downs at their own 34-yard line, but O'Connell was later intercepted by cornerback Asante Samuel Jr. Three plays later, Herbert connected with Joshua Palmer on a 51-yard deep ball. The Chargers then took a knee.

FINAL: Dallas Cowboys 38, New England Patriots 3

Dallas TD

After the two teams traded field goals in the early going, the Cowboys scored the game's first touchdown when Dak Prescott hit wide receiver CeeDee Lamb for the 20-yard score.


Patriots quarterback Mac Jones had the ball knocked out of his possession by Cowboys defensive end Dante Fowler Jr., and linebacker Leighton Vander Esch picked up and ran the loose ball back for a touchdown.

From bad to worse

Cowboys cornerback Daron Bland stepped in front of Jones' pass and ran the interception back 54 yards for a touchdown. They led 28-3.

FINAL: San Francisco 49ers 35, Arizona Cardinals 16 

49ers score first

Christian McCaffrey finished off San Francisco's first drive with a 1-yard touchdown run.

Out here doing hurdles

McCaffrey hauled in a quick pass on the 49ers' next possession, hurdled defenders and went into the end zone for an 18-yard score.

He does everything 

Three plays after Brock Purdy found wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk downfield for a 42-yard pickup, the quarterback got the ball out to McCaffrey, who rolled over a defender and into the end zone for his third overall touchdown.

Cardinals make a play

Arizona narrowed the gap a bit before halftime, as Joshua Dobbs found wide receiver Michael Wilson for a 16-yard touchdown. The Cardinals trailed 21-10 at halftime.

They do it again!

A drive that started at the Cardinals' own 1-yard line ended with Dobbs hooking up with Wilson for another touchdown. This time, it was an 8-yard score. Arizona failed a 2-point attempt, though, and trailed 21-16.

Guess who?

On the ensuing drive, McCaffrey posted his third rushing touchdown and fourth overall touchdown of the game. Purdy then executed a quarterback sneak for a touchdown on the 49ers' next possession.

FINAL: Philadelphia Eagles 34, Washington Commanders 31 (OT)

Strong start

Washington began the game with a 13-play touchdown drive, ending with a 1-yard scoring rush from Curtis Samuel.

Eagles respond

Philadelphia knotted up the score on the ensuing possession with D'Andre Swift running in a 5-yard touchdown.

A TD is a TD

Brian Robinson got the call on the run near the goal line for Washington, but he fumbled. Fortunately for the Commanders. Terry McLaurin recovered the loose ball in the end zone for a touchdown.

What a catch!

Wide receiver DeVonta Smith brought down an unreal 37-yard catch for the Eagles before halftime, helping set up a field goal.

Lead change

Philadelphia took the lead in the third quarter when Jalen Hurts found wide receiver A.J. Brown, who ran around a series of tackle attempts and into the end zone for a 59-yard score.

B-Rob strikes again

FINAL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 26, New Orleans Saints 9

TB scores

Tampa Bay took the lead in the second quarter when Baker Mayfield connected with tight end Cade Otton for a 4-yard touchdown, capping off a 17-play drive.

Bucs punch it in

Late in the first half, Mayfield was intercepted in the end zone by Saints cornerback Isaac Yiadom. With that said, Saints fullback Adam Prentice fumbled on the very next play, with Buccaneers safety Antoine Winfield Jr. recovering the loose ball. Two plays later, Buccaneers wide receiver Trey Palmer made a tremendous goal-line touchdown grab. Tampa Bay led 14-3.

Airbone TD!

Buccaneers wide receiver Deven Thompkins went flying for a 5-yard touchdown grab. They then failed a two-point attempt, though.

FINAL: Tennessee Titans 27, Cincinnati Bengals 3


Tennessee reached the end zone first when Ryan Tannehill hit wide receiver Nick Westbrook-Ikhine for a 13-yard score in the second quarter.

Get out of the way

After forcing a Cincinnati three-and-out, Tennessee stretched its lead to two scores when Derrick Henry thundered through the defense for a 29-yard touchdown run.

All Titans

After the Bengals punted again, Henry made them pay. On the seventh play of the ensuing drive, Henry threw a goal-line touchdown pass to tight end Josh Whyle. The Titans led 24-3 at halftime.

FINAL: Los Angeles Rams 29, Indianapolis Colts 23 (OT) 

Finish it off, Kyren

The Rams found the end zone on each of their first two possessions, with Kyren Williams running in a pair of 3-yard touchdowns. According to FOX Sports Research, Williams became the first Rams running back to rush for five touchdowns in their first four games since Marshall Faulk in 2000.

Colts show life

Indianapolis got on the board when Anthony Richardson threw a strike to tight end Mo Alie-Cox for a 35-yard touchdown. The Colts then converted a two-point attempt and trailed 23-8.

Doing it himself

Rams win in OT!

Matthew Stafford hit wide receiver Puka Nacua for the game-winning, 22-yard touchdown for the Rams.

FINAL: Minnesota Vikings 21, Carolina Panthers 13

Finding The Jet

Cousins hit wide receiver Justin Jefferson for a 4-yard touchdown, getting the Vikings on the board.

Just what they needed!

Safety Harrison Smith strip-sacked Panthers quarterback Bryce Young, and linebacker DJ Wonnum ran the ball back for a Vikings touchdown.


Cousins found Jefferson for an impressive 30-yard touchdown.

FINAL: Baltimore Ravens 28, Cleveland Browns 3

Ravens capitalize

One play after Ravens defensive back Brandon Stephens intercepted Browns quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson — who's starting in place of the injured Deshaun Watson (shoulder injury) — and ran the pick back to the Browns' 10-yard line, Lamar Jackson ran in a 10-yard touchdown. Jackson would later run in a 2-yard score late in the second quarter.

Just throw it up for Mark

Jackson threw it up for Mark Andrews, and the Ravens tight end came down with the contested, 7-yard touchdown reception. Baltimore led 21-3 at halftime. 

8-to-89 once again

Jackson and Andrews hooked up for an 18-yard touchdown, putting an exclamation point on the Baltimore win.

FINAL: Buffalo Bills 48, Miami Dolphins 20

Josh Allen fired an 18-yard touchdown pass to an open Gabe Davis for Buffalo.

Circus catch leads to TD

Jaylen Waddle somehow came down with an absurd, 11-yard catch that bounced off multiple players, as show below. Later in the drive, De'Von Achane ran in a 3-yard score for the Dolphins.

Achane cannot be stopped

After Buffalo scored another touchdown, Miami returned the favor when Achane ran in a 10-yard score.

Yeah, more offense

Buffalo regained the lead when Allen stepped up and hit wide receiver Stefon Diggs for an 11-yard touchdown.

Kept Digging

Diggs hauled in a reception from Allen and then spun out of multiple tackle attempts and took off for the end zone.

Hat trick

Diggs hauled in his third touchdown late in the third quarter, giving the Bills a 41-20 lead.

FINAL: Houston Texans 30, Pittsburgh Steelers 6

The Texans put together a 12-play touchdown drive to open the game. C.J. Stroud capped off the drive with a 2-yard scoring pass to wide receiver Nico Collins. Houston went on to put three field goals on the board and led 16-0 at halftime.

Kenny Pickett leaves game

Pittsburgh's quarterback left the game with a knee injury in the third quarter and was ruled out.

Trick 'em

Ten plays after the Steelers turned it over on downs, the Texans snapped the ball to running back Devin Singletary, who then threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to tight end Dalton Schultz. The Texans led 23-6 lead.

Texans in control

Stroud hit Collins in stride on a deep ball, and the wide receiver ran it into the end zone for a 52-yard Texans touchdown.

FINAL: Denver Broncos 31, Chicago Bears 28

Slice and dice

Running back Jaleel McLaughlin reeled in a short pass from Russell Wilson and knifed his way through the defense for an 18-yard Broncos touchdown. 

Passing game!

Chicago's offense got off to an auspicious start, as Justin Fields hit wide receiver DJ Moore near the pylon for a 29-yard touchdown near the end of the first quarter. 

The Bears then scored another touchdown on their next possession when Fields hit tight end Cole Kmet for a 22-yard score.

Long 2-yard score

Fields hit Kmet for another score late in the first half, and then Chicago pushed its lead to three scores on its first possession of the second half. On the 15th play of the drive, Fields scrambled around and got the ball to Khalil Herbert for a 2-yard score. The Bears led 28-7.

Back in it

Denver answered the aforementioned touchdown with a touchdown of its own, as Wilson hit Brandon Johnson for a 4-yard score. It then drew closer on its next drive. On the ninth play of the drive, Wilson hit wide receiver Courtland Sutton for a 13-yard touchdown. The Broncos trailed 28-21.


Once trailing 28-7, Denver evened up the score when linebacker Nik Bonitto strip-sacked Fields and Jonathon Cooper ran it back 35 yards for a touchdown.

Broncos close it out

Chicago chose to go for it on fourth-and-1 from the Denver 18-yard line and was unsuccessful. The Broncos then got a field goal, and safety Kareem Jackson picked off Fields to finish off the 21-point comeback.

FINAL: Jacksonville Jaguars 23, Atlanta Falcons 7

Making 'em miss

Falcons running back Bijan Robinson sent a defender the other way in the first quarter.

Jags TD

London action
