 Week 8 Winners

Ben Roethlisberger: The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback fell scarcely short of two sacrosanct single-amusement passing records with 522 yards (32 short of Norm Van Brocklin's record) and six Tds (one short of the imprint imparted by seven players). However Big Ben did turn into the first player in NFL history to obscuration 500 passing yards in one diversion on different events.

Arian Foster: He might just be the second-best back in Texas this season, however that could likewise be sufficient for No. 2 association wide. Encourage shut the crevice on class hurrying pioneer Demarco Murray with a 151-yard day and posted a trio of Tds as the Houston Texans traveled by the Tennessee Titans while making up ground in the special case pursue.

John Brown: The Arizona Cardinals' rapid new kid on the block wideout got behind the Philadelphia Eagles auxiliary to catch a diversion winning 75-yard TD pass as the Cards briefly measured up to the Cowboys for the NFC's top record at 6-1.

George Iloka: The Cincinnati Bengals security may be a superior artist than preventive back. It showed up Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith beat Iloka for an amusement winning 80-yard TD with 32 seconds remaining. However what appeared to be minimal more than coincidental contact from Smith before his get sent Iloka, who's 7 inches taller and 25 pounds heavier, flying while likewise acquiring a pass obstruction signal on Smith. Diversion, set and match to Iloka and Cincinnati.

Tom Brady: Since ideas of his death hit a fevered contribute a month ago's victory misfortune at Kansas City, the New England Patriots quarterback has gone 4-0 with 14 Tds and 0 Ints after a 354-yard, five-TD passing day in a 51-23 laugher over the Chicago Bears.

Dolphins: Dbs Louis Delmas and Brent Grimes each one returned Blake Bortles Ints for Tds in Miami's 27-13 annihilation of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Delmas likewise recuperated a mishandle from Bortles.

Mark Ingram: In his second diversion back from a broken hand, the New Orleans Saints back shot to a vocation best 172 yards and a TD in a 44-23 triumph against the Green Bay Packers that may have spared the Saints' season ... also earned Ingram a fat new contract (from somebody) in 2015.

Vikings new kids on the block: One of their first rounders, QB Teddy Bridgewater, arranged an amusement tying field objective drive toward the end of regulation in Tampa. The other Round 1 pick, LB Anthony Barr, tore the ball from individual rook Austin Seferian-Jenkins on the first play of additional time and returned it 27 yards for the amusement fixing TD.

Lions kicking diversion: Detroit kickers were an aggregate 6-for-16 on field-objective tries entering Sunday's amusement in London. Yet it appears Matt Prater has at long last balanced out the position in the wake of changing over each of the three of his endeavors, including a 48-yard amusement champ at the weapon to beat the Atlanta Falcons. At the same time he did make it fascinating, missing his first break at the unequivocal kick from 43 yards — in reasonableness, the snap was poor — before it was invalidated by a postponement of amusement punishment.

Kyle Orton: He's currently 3-1 as the Buffalo Bills' starter in the wake of posting four more TD passes in a 43-23 sticking of the New York Jets. (What's more Orton would have had five Tds had tenderfoot Sammy Watkins not been handled while showboating after a 84-yard finish.)

London: The Brits saw the closest of the 10 NFL challenges arranged at Wembley Stadium since 2007 with Prater's last-second kick flipping the script Sunday. In spite of the fact that it appears marquee diversions are once in a while traded over the Atlantic, six of the 10 have been chosen by single digits.

Jamaal Charles and Justin Houston: The Kansas City Chiefs stars had enormous days — Charles created 117 yards from scrimmage and two Tds while Houston had three sacks — as Kansas City unequivocally guaranteed the clash of Missouri 34-7 over the St. Louis Rams and went over .500 surprisingly this season.

Week 8 Loser

Planes Qbs: Geno Smith had five culminations Sunday, two to his buddies and three to the Bills. Michael Vick contributed with three more turnovers (INT, 2 bobbles) in easing of Smith, making them the first match of quarterbacking buddies to each one dole the ball out three times in the same diversion since 1991.

Colts resistance: One week in the wake of blanking the Bengals, Indianapolis surrendered 51 focuses and 639 yards — the most in the Colts' 62-year history — to the Steelers, an execution that recharges addresses about the Colts' reasonability as a genuine Super Bowl contender.

Bears' big weapons: After a week of investigation over WR Brandon Marshall's locker room tirade — and whether it was coordinated at his amigo, QB Jay Cutler — they were a piece of a Chicago offense that was on the wrong end of a 45-7 score in the second from last quarter at New England before including some nonessential focuses and yards. Marshall completed with three gets while Cutler, who called the group's indicating "anguishing," finished the day on the seat. Blustery City playoff trusts are very nearly clearing out with the Bears now 3-5 in a profound meeting.

Zach Mettenberger: The Titans new kid on the block quarterback passed for 299 yards and a couple of Tds in his first NFL begin. Anyway the majority of those details came well after the amusement was in uncertainty, and Mettenberger could be portrayed as stunned and confounded now and again by the Texans guard. Perhaps spare the Matthew Mcconaughey outfits until you get a couple of seasons (or in any event wins) added to your repertoire, kid.

Lamarr Houston: It's reasonable to expect the Bears did not give the preventive lineman a five-year, $35 million agreement in March so he could commend a sack while his group trailed by 25 focuses and endure a potential season-finishing knee harm the whole time.

Birds red-zone offense: Three outings inside the Arizona 20-yard line created three focuses for Philly. Makes those 521 yards and 20 focuses appear as though vacant calories in a four-point misfortune.

Birds of prey's amusement administration: Coach Mike Smith has long experienced harsh criticism for his choices in time to get down to business, especially on the fourth downs Atlanta so oftentimes neglects to change over. More inquiries will probably trail the Falcons, heading 21-19, attempted a pass on third-and-10 with 1:50 to go despite the fact that the Lions were out of timeouts. Indeed, a first down would have permitted Atlanta to execute the clock and keep its inadequate guard off the field. Anyhow the fizzled pass (dropped by WR Julio Jones) just ran 4 seconds off the clock and gave Detroit enough time to drive from its own particular 7-yard line for the amusement winning field objective.

NFC's 2013 top seeds: The Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers, who earned the No. 1 and 2 playoff seeds in the NFC a year ago, separately, were entirely unremarkable in a 13-9 Seattle win. Much better risk they both miss the postseason in the not so distant future than return.

Matt Schaub: Finally asked to toss his first pass as an Oakland Raider, he was picked off as the Silver and Black faked a field objective in Cleveland. Only one more tragic section for the NFL's just winles team.
