Two plays after forcing another Washington punt, running back Breece Hall thundered through its defense for a 36-yard touchdown.
Jamison Crowder was putting the finishing touches on a superb punt return for the Commanders before bizarrely coughing up the ball near the sideline. Ashtyn Davis recovered the loose ball for the Jets, who got a field goal shortly after the recovery.
One play after Washington fell on a Siemian fumble, Chris Rodriguez Jr. powered in a 12-yard rushing touchdown.
Spinning and winning
New York got to the goal line, and Hall spun himself into the end zone for a 2-yard rushing score.
We got a game!
Jacoby Brissett relieved Howell — who completed just six passes and threw two interceptions — at quarterback for Washington, and it put together back-to-back touchdown possessions. The first drive — which started with a Siemian interception — saw tight end Logan Thomas reel in a 15-yard touchdown reception, and the second saw Rodriguez run in a goal-line touchdown. Washington trailed 27-21 with 9:33 remaining in the fourth quarter.
Commanders take the lead!
After trailing by 20 points midway through the third quarter, Washington took the lead when Antonio Gibson ran in a 2-yard touchdown and it then made the extra point.

Going to his right, Mullens threw up a pass for Justin Jefferson, and the wide receiver came down with a 26-yard touchdown. Minnesota trailed 17-14 at halftime.

Love hooked up with wide receiver Dontayvion Wicks for a 21-yard Packers touchdown.

Panthers quarterback Bryce Young and wide receiver DJ Chark hooked up for a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter. While Carolina missed the extra point after the first touchdown, it then converted a game-tying, two-point attempt on the second score.
Green Bay came right down the field and got into field goal range for kicker Anders Carlson, who connected on a 32-yard field goal. The Panthers then got the ball into Packers territory, but they didn’t have enough time to spike the ball before time expired in the fourth quarter.
Atlanta Falcons 29, Indianapolis Colts 10
JT is back
On the 13th play of the opening possession, Colts running back Jonathan Taylor smacked in a goal-line touchdown.

Built Ford tough
Three plays after quarterback Joe Flacco hooked up with wide receiver Amari Cooper for a 53-yard gain, Jerome Ford took a direct snap four yards into the end zone for Cleveland.
The deep connection
