KANSAS CITY CHIEFS 20, DETROIT LIONS 21
NFL offensive highlights: Travis Kelce did not participate in this match, and as an outcome, Mahomes was propelled to disperse the ball to 11 various pass-catchers, finishing 21-of-39 passes for 226 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also counted 45 yards on 6 rushes with his legs, but he could not win the game unassisted. Mahomes’ receivers connected for five drops, containing three from Kadarius Toney.
Jared Goff united with Amon-Ra St. Brown for the first touchdown of the game, but it took time until halfway through the 4th quarter for the offense to bring back on the board. Goff guided a 75-yard touchdown drive on the back of 51 Josh Reynolds receiving yards and a David Montgomery rushing touchdown to deliver the Lions a fourth-quarter superiority. And that was enough because the Chiefs’ offense could not get back on track.
CAROLINA PANTHERS 10, ATLANTA FALCONS 24
NFL defensive highlights: The defense of the Falcons, guided by the latest defensive coordinator, Ryan Nielsen, stepped to a hot start that comprised a huge fourth down stop within its red area and an intervention inside the 20-yard line of Carolina, both in the 1st quarter. That intervention showed a touchdown offense of the Falcons. Current free agent safety Jessie Bates created an effective result in Atlanta’s first game, coming up with two interventions and two defensive stops.
HOUSTON TEXANS 9, BALTIMORE RAVENS 25
NFL beginner highlights: Zay Flowers will be a major component of this offense. In this first quarter unaided, he obtained 4 targets and 1 rushing try and completed the match with eighty-seven rushing and receiving yards on 11 total touches.
C.J. Stroud encountered as complex a contender. That’s all you can hope for. He had some pleasant junctures, was forced by the Ravens’ defense, and completed the match 28-for-44 for 242 yards. Will Anderson Jr., the 3rd all-around selection in the NFL Draft 2023, recorded his first sack as a professional, getting Jackson down in the fourth quarter, while wide receiver Tank Dell acquired four targets, picking up 34 yards on 3 receptions.
CINCINNATI BENGALS 3, CLEVELAND BROWNS 24
NFL offensive highlights: Both passing offenses worked diligently in this match. Joe Burrow proceeded only 14-for-31 for 82 yards with no touchdowns. Deshaun Watson had better figures, going 16-for-29 for 154 yards and one touchdown, but had a horrible intervention in the 3rd quarter, hurling the ball right at Bengals defensive back Dax Hill.
The Browns had better triumph on the field, though, with Nick Chubb rushing for 106 yards on 18 receiving and another 100 yards coming from the mixture of Elijah Moore, Watson, and Jerome Ford. Finally, the capability to tilt on their home ground match was a major cause of why the Browns could outlast the Bengals here.

PITTSBURGH STEELERS 7, SAN FRANSISCO 49ERS 30
NFL defensive highlights: There was nothing to write too much about for the Steelers or their home in this one, but if there were only highlights, it was T.J. Watt
Watt completed the match with 3 sacks, one tackle for loss, 2 forced fumbles, 5 quarterback hits, and one fumble recovery, pending reviews. Regardless of the outcome of his team, those numbers will set him in the earlier Defensive Player of the Year conversation.
MINNESOTA VIKINGS 17, TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS 20
NFL beginner highlights: Vikings 1st-round draft pick Jordan Addison had an excellent start, grabbing 4 of the 6 targets tossed his way as opposed to Tampa Bay. 2 of his receivers went for first downs, and one came out in a touchdown for Minnesota. Justin Jefferson was his regular impressive self, and Addison tried hard to suggest he could be an essential fulfilment to the All-world receiver.
