Saints end Falcons’ run, Bengals stun Giants


It was just the 18th tie since the NFL introduced regular-season overtime in 1974.

The Baltimore Ravens move to 7-2 after crushing the Oakland Raiders 55-20, with Joe Flacco throwing for three touchdowns and 341 yards.

The Ravens had four receivers who put up more than 50 yards in the one-sided game.

Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos also enjoyed a relatively comfortable win with a 36-14 victory at the Carolina Panthers.

Manning threw for 301 yards and a touchdown to move into a second-place tie with Dan Marino on the NFL all-time list with 420 passing touchdowns, while his opposite number Cam Newton was sacked seven times and threw two interceptions.

The Minnesota Vikings’ (6-4) impressive season continued with Adrian Peterson rushing for 171 yards in a 34-24 win over the Detroit Lions. Peterson set up the victory with a 61-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick suffered a concussion and was taken out of the game against the Dallas Cowboys early in the second quarter. The Cowboys went on to a 38-23 win and in an unusual fourth quarter they scored touchdowns on a punt return, interception return and fumble recovery.

The Seattle Seahawks moved to 6-4 after a comfortable 28-7 win over the fading New York Jets, who fell to 3-6.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enjoyed a third successive win with a 34-24 victory over the San Diego Chargers. Leonard Johnson returned an interception 83 yards in the fourth quarter for the decisive score.

Also on Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-10, while the Tennessee Titans thrashed the Miami Dolphins 37-3.
