September 20, 2021
BALTIMORE (AP) — Lamar Jackson had been 0-3 versus Patrick Mahomes before the Baltimore Ravens quarterback ran for 107 yards and two TDs in a 36-35 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Jackson also threw for 239 yards and a score for Baltimore, which didn’t secure the win until Clyde Edwards-Helaire on a potential game-winning drive. Mahomes completed 24 of his 31 passes for 343 yards, three touchdowns and an interception.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ franchise-record winning streak has reached 10 games after Tom Brady threw for 276 yards and five touchdowns in a 48-25 romp over the Atlanta Falcons. Rob Gronkowski caught a pair of TD passes for the third straight game, including the Super Bowl. Mike Evans also scored on receptions of 3 and 1 yards, the latter set up by Shaquil Barrett’s third-quarter interception of Matt Ryan.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Sam Darnold and the Carolina Panthers are 2-0 following a 26-7 win over the New Orleans Saints. Darnold was 26 of 38 for 305 yards, two TDs and one interception as he continues to flourish since leaving the New York Jets. Christian McCaffrey added 137 yards from scrimmage and scored his first touchdown of the season.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo threw one touchdown pass and ran in for a score, leading the San Francisco 49ers to a 17-11 victory at Philadelphia. Nick Bosa (BOH’-sah) had two sacks and San Francisco’s stingy defense shut down Jalen Hurts. The Eagles’ quarterback ran for 82 yards but completed just 12 of 23 passes for 190 yards.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Baker Mayfield threw for a touchdown, ran for a score and was 18 of 21 for 213 yards in the Cleveland Browns’ 31-21 decision over Houston. Mayfield completed all 10 of his passes after suffering a left shoulder injury while tossing an interception. Nick Chubb ran for 95 yards on 11 carries, including a 26-yard TD.
