New England's defense dominated in Buffalo as the Patriots held off the stubborn Bills to move to 4-0 with a 16-10 win. Josh Allen threw three interceptions and was sacked four times as the Patriots' defense swarmed around the second-year quarterback all game.Buffalo's D held Tom Brady to just 150 yards on 39 attempts - including a pick - but Allen's turnovers and a special teams touchdown helped the defending champions to a fourth straight win.

New Orleans made it back-to-back victories to end Dallas Cowboys' perfect start with a 12-10 victory at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday night. Without Drew Brees, still sidelined following thumb surgery, the Saints have been forced to look elsewhere to continue their winning run and against a Cowboys team without a defeat it was the defense that played their part.The Cowboys had not scored fewer than 31 points in their 3-0 start to the season but they were limited by a Saints defense that atoned for their less than fluent showing in the redzone as the offense continues to find it's feet under Teddy Bridgewater in the absence of Brees. Dallas scored the only touchdown of the game, through Ezekiel Elliott, but were limited to just 45 rushing yards - Elliott accounting for 35 of them - as the Saints won a game without scoring a touchdown for the first time since 1998.It means the Saints (3-1) move to the top of the NFC South and have two wins from two with Bridgewater under centre, … [Read more...] about New Orleans Saints beat Dallas Cowboys in Sunday night football

Michigan State had it and lost it. Then Kentucky had it and lost it. Then Duke had it and lost it.Now Louisville has it.And if the Cardinals want to hold on to it, not to mention their No. 1 ranking in the Associated Press Top 25 poll, they'll have to handle business against Pitt on Friday night inside the KFC Yum Center. Louisville is a 12-point favorite in the game; so Pitt winning would be a surprise. But let the record show that the three previous No. 1 teams -- Michigan State, Kentucky and Duke -- have all lost as even bigger favorites.
