The matchup was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Philadelphia had established a 28-7 advantage. Their RB Miles Sanders filled up the stat sheet, punching in two rushing touchdowns.
Meanwhile, the Cincinnati Bengals typically have all the answers at home, but two weeks ago the Kansas City Chiefs proved too difficult a challenge. Kansas City had just enough and edged out Cincinnati 23-20. The Chiefs’ success was spearheaded by the efforts of WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who caught six passes for one TD and 116 yards, and QB Patrick Mahomes, who passed for two TDs and 326 yards on 43 attempts. Mahomes ended up with a passer rating of 146.50.
