Earlier, the Dallas Cowboys dominated the Minnesota Vikings, the Las Vegas Raiders outlasted the Denver Broncos in overtime and the Detroit Lions stunned the New York Giants. Elsewhere, the Philadelphia Eagles rebounded against the Indianapolis Colts, while the Buffalo Bills topped the Cleveland Browns.
Here are the top plays from Sunday’s action!
Mike Williams, who returned to the Chargers’ lineup Sunday for the first time since Week 7, showed up in a big way for the home team with a jaw-dropping sideline catch on third down.
… which set up a touchdown from Travis Kelce that gave K.C. a 13-10 early in the second quarter.
Kelce was relentless in the second half, snagging another huge touchdown to put the Chiefs ahead 23-20.
Kelce wasn’t the only one racking up scores in this one. Palmer added his second touchdown of the night late in the fourth quarter to put the Chargers back in the lead with less than two minutes remaining.
For the win!
That Chargers’ lead was short-lived, however, as Kelce came up with a last-minute score for K.C., followed by a game-sealing interception with seconds to spare.
Jumping for joy
Najee Harris knotted things up with a 19-yard touchdown, completed by a huge leap into the end zone.
Perine checked in with his second rushing score in the second quarter to give Cincinnati the lead, 17-10.
Rookie on rookie
The Bengals charged downfield just ahead of the break to attempt to take the lead. Tee Higgins came up with an incredible catch but landed hard on his hip after the fact. Two plays later, Burrow was picked near midfield.
Then, T.J. Watt came up with a huge interception near Cincinnati’s red zone that was nearly too good to believe, resulting in a field goal for the Steelers to make it a one-point game, 24-23, late in the third quarter.
Pickens came up with another picture-perfect pass to move the Steelers downfield with ease late in the game.
Perine came up with his third score of the game in the fourth inning, powering through Pittsburgh’s defense as the Bengals held off the Steelers.
Kirk Cousins was sacked by Micah Parsons and fumbled the ball on the Vikings’ opening drive. The turnover allowed Ezekiel Elliott to punch in a 1-yard touchdown on the Cowboys’ ensuing drive, good for the early lead.
Pollard added a 68-yard touchdown in the third, as the Cowboys cruised to a dominating win over the Vikings.
The Broncos took the lead in the first quarter on a 1-yard touchdown from Latavius Murray, and the Raiders followed that up with a 31-yard touchdown from Davante Adams in the second quarter to keep things close.
Both teams exchanged five field goals before things headed to overtime in Denver.
A wide-open Adams reeled in a 35-yard touchdown pass from Derek Carr to seal the win for L.V. in overtime.

New Orleans took the lead in the third quarter on an Andy Dalton touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry, followed by Dalton lofting a pretty pass to rookie receiver Chris Olave as the Saints widened their lead.
