NFL Scores Week 7: Most Thrilling Finishes of Sunday's Action
Scores in Week 7 of the NFL season were as tight as ever.
More 1:00 p.m. EDT starts went down to the wire than usual. Here are the games that needed 60 minutes to decide the outcome.
Tennessee Titans 35, Buffalo Bills 34
Who's more likely to make the playoffs?
Chris Johnson carried the Titans with 195 rushing yards and two touchdowns, but Matt Hasselbeck and Nate Washington finished off the Bills. On 4th-and-9 from Buffalo’s 15-yard line with 1:08 left in the game, Hasselbeck found Washington in the back of the end zone for the go-ahead score. Hasselbeck, who had struggled throughout the contest, came up huge when it mattered most.
Tennessee only forced the Bills to punt once all day, but its ability to hold them to a pair of field goals instead of touchdowns gave the Titans the edge.
New Orleans Saints 35, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 28
As outstanding as Johnson’s performance was, Vincent Jackson’s was equally impressive. He reeled in seven receptions for 217 yards and a touchdown, helping lead the Bucs to an early two-touchdown lead. Four unanswered Saints TDs later, though, and that lead had vanished and transformed into a deficit.
Tampa Bay did have a chance to tie from nine yards out with nine seconds left on the clock, but it failed to execute.
New York Giants 27, Washington Redskins 23
Robert Griffin III is clutch.
Just not as clutch as Eli Manning.
After an entertaining back-and-forth first-half battle, New York took a seven-point lead early in the fourth quarter. Griffin stormed back and put the Skins ahead with a field-goal and touchdown drive. But that lead didn’t even last a minute, as Manning immediately answered with a 77-yard bomb to Victor Cruz.
RGIII had 1:13 to work with, but Santana Moss coughed up the football, sealing the victory for the Giants.
