Cardinals running back Chase Edmunds stole the show, the rushing for a career-high 126 yards, helping the Cardinals win in the process. The Cardinals take their record to 3-3-1. Kliff Kingsbury has done a great job thus far this season.
The undefeated San Francisco 49ers took on the Washington Redskins. Here the 49ers defense was the star. Rookie Nick Bosa dominated the line of scrimmage in a rainy game. To say passing was limited in this game would be an understatement. 49ers kicker Robbie Gould was the star on offense, as he made three field goals leading to a 49ers victory. The 49ers remain undefeated and move to 6-0.

Cousins was 24 of 34 for a season-high of 337 yards. The Vikings keep pace with the Packers, as the Vikes move to 5-2.
New Orleans traveled to Chicago and beat the holy heck out of them. Teddy Bridgewater for the Saints had a great performance in this one. Bridgewater threw for 281 yards and two touchdowns. The Saints win and improve to 5-1 on the season. The performance by the Bears was embarrassing, The Saints manhandled them in the trenches on both sides of the ball. Quarterback Mitch Trubisky played pitifully. Matt Nagy called a porous game and Sean Payton showed why he’s the best in the game.
Sunday Night Football was an NFC East Rivalry game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys sent a message to their rivals in this one. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott completed 21 of 27 pass attempts, for 239 yards, and a touchdown. He also had his third rushing TD of the season. Zeke Elliot had a touchdown and 111 yards on the ground. Big turnovers by Wentz and the Eagles in the first half were the turning points. The Dallas defense led by Demarcus Lawrence and Robert Quinn roughed up the Philadelphia offensive line and Wentz all night. Dallas kicker Brett Maher booted a 63 yard field goal right before the half. That kick would have traveled 67 yards to boot. Dallas goes on to win this one as they take back first place in the NFC East. Their record goes to 4-3.
