The Newsroom recaps round 10 of the NFL.
The entire NFL including the Baltimore Ravens (top pictured) paid their respects to those in Paris who were affected by the attacks.
The Panthers keep winning
The Carolina Panthers defeated the Tennessee Titans 27-10 in Nashville. The Panthers now have nine consecutive wins, continuing their victorious streak. At half-time the Panthers were up 14-10 and went on to score a couple of field goals and a touchdown in the second half, holding the Titans scoreless. Panther quarterback, Cam Newton completed his first 11 passes, which was the longest streak of his career; he finished the game with 21 completions from 26 attempts for 217 yards. For the Titans, who had a great win last week under interim coach Mike Mularkey, the disappointing result became their 10th straight loss at home.
The Chiefs destroy the Broncos
The Kansas City Chiefs spoiled the party as they defeated Peyton Manning’s Broncos 29-13 in Denver. Manning broke the all-time passing record previously held by legendary quarterback Brett Favre in the first quarter; he only needed three yards to break the record. Despite all that, Manning had a luck lustre game and only completed five out of 20 passes for 35 yards and threw four interceptions. Manning was benched as the Chiefs held the Broncos scoreless for three quarters. At half-time the Chiefs were in front by 19 points to nil. The Broncos scored two quick touchdowns in the last quarter to make the score somewhat respectable.
The ‘Reds’ skin New Orleans
The Washington Redskins took the New Orleans Saints to school and back again with a convincing drubbing of 47 points to 14 in Maryland. The Redskins were comfortable the entire game, winning all their quarters. At half-time it was 27-14, and Washington put the Saints to sword with an extra 20 points in the last two quarters, holding New Orleans scoreless. Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins was the star of the show having figures of 20 completions off 25 attempts, four touchdowns and throwing 324 yards. Saints quarterback Drew Brees tried to lead from the front, throwing two touchdowns and having figures of 19 completions off 28 attempts for 209 yards, but unfortunately couldn’t get the win the Saints so desperately desired. – Jesse Mullens
