The Arizona Cardinals beat the Detroit Lions by a score of 14-6 on Sunday, improving to 9-1 for the first time since 1948, back when the franchise was still in Chicago, per Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910.

In their first game since quarterback Carson Palmer was ruled out for the season with a torn ACL, the Cardinals unsurprisingly got things done with defense, holding the Lions to 262 total yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Quarterback Drew Stanton filled in capably, making up for a pair of interceptions by completing 21 of his 32 pass attempts for 306 yards and two touchdowns.

Veteran wide receiver Michael Floyd accounted for both of those touchdowns, while rookie wide receiver John Brown caught a team-high five passes for a team-high 69 yards.

The Green Bay Packers scored 53 points in Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles to become just the fifth team in NFL history to reach the 50-point mark in consecutive games, per ESPN Stats & Info.

After beating the Chicago Bears by a score of 55-14 in Week 10, the Packers improved to 5-0 at home this season by routing the Eagles 53-20.

Green Bay has now outscored its opponents 214-85 in five home games, including 183-61 over the last four.

Star quarterback Aaron Rodgers has mostly had the luxury of watching fourth quarters from the sidelines, as the Packers held halftime leads of 28-0, 28-3, 42-0 and 30-6 in those last four home games.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews caught five passes for 107 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 53-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers to become just the second rookie in team history with back-to-back 100-yard receiving games, per Reuben Frank of CSN Philadelphia.

The second-rounder out of Vanderbilt was quiet for much of the first half Sunday, catching just one ball for five yards in the game's first 29 minutes while his team fell behind 30-3.

Matthews then broke out for a 40-yard reception in the final minute of the half, leading to a field goal that cut the lead to 30-6. His next catch was a 10-yard touchdown reception late in the third quarter, which cut the Packers' lead to 39-13.

With the outcome no longer in question, the 22-year-old rookie caught passes of 16 and 36 yards in the final quarter, putting him over 100 yards for a second straight week.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White reached 10,000 career receiving yards in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Carolina Panthers, catching eight passes for 75 yards and a touchdown to go just two yards over the milestone mark.

White joined the 10,000-yard club on a crucial play, as he picked up 11 yards on a 1st-and-10 from the Falcons 49-yard line in the fourth quarter, moving his team to Carolina's 40 at the edge of kicker Matt Bryant's range.

The Falcons were trailing 17-16 with under five minutes remaining in the game and then picked up another first down on a catch by Harry Douglas that moved the offense comfortably into Bryant's range for a successful 44-yarder.

The field goal set up by catches from White and Douglas held as the game-winner after Panthers kicker Graham Gano missed from 46 and 63 yards in the final 90 seconds.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw just one touchdown pass in Sunday's 22-7 loss to the St. Louis Rams, ending his record-setting streak of 15 consecutive regular-season games with multiple touchdown passes, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Manning finished the surprising loss with 34 completions for 389 yards on 54 pass attempts with two interceptions and a lone touchdown toss to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who along with tight end Julius Thomas and running back Montee Ball, left the game with an injury, per Mike Klis of The Denver Post.

Ball and Thomas both suffered lower-body injuries in the first quarter, while Sanders was diagnosed with a concussion after taking a big hit in the third quarter.

Despite all of the injuries and his own shaky play, Manning had quite a few chances to march the Broncos toward the end zone for his second touchdown pass of the game.

With seven receptions for 103 yards in Sunday's 22-7 loss to the St. Louis Rams, Demaryius Thomas of the Denver Broncos became just the fifth player ever to record 100 or more receiving yards in seven consecutive games, per Pro-Football-Reference.com's play index.

Thomas barely reached the century mark in Denver's surprising loss, picking up 14 yards on a short pass over the middle on a 3rd-and-15 with three minutes, 10 seconds remaining.

His final catch of the day was followed by a game-sealing incompletion on 4th-and-1, with Peyton Manning's pass to a wide-open Thomas getting batted down by Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree.

The 26-year-old wideout finished Sunday as the NFL's leading receiver, with 1,105 yards through 10 games. His 72 receptions rank second to the 79 of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, who will likely pass Thomas for the yardage lead Monday night against the Tennessee Titans.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton matched an unwanted franchise record in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, throwing at least one interception in a seventh consecutive game, per ESPN Stats & Info.

After throwing eight picks over his previous six games, Newton wasted little time matching the franchise-record streak compiled by Steve Beuerlein (2000) and Jake Delhomme (2003-2004).

Newton's third pass attempt of Sunday's game went in the direction of tight end Greg Olsen, who was covered closely by Falcons safety Dwight Lowery along the left sideline on a 3rd-and-6. The ball deflected off Olsen's hands, bouncing over his head and into the hands of safety Kemal Ishmael.

The interception cost Carolina a chance to pin the Falcons back with a punt, but the Panthers defense then came up with a quick three-and-out, which was followed by a long field-goal drive from Newton and the offense.

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson caught his 982nd career pass in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Cleveland Browns to match Randy Moss for 10th place on the all-time receptions list, per Drew Dougherty of HoustonTexans.com.

Johnson made the milestone catch a memorable one, moving into the top 10 with a 10-yard reception that converted a 4th-and-3 from the Browns' 38-yard line early in the fourth quarter. Covered tightly by Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden on the play, Johnson trapped the ball against his thigh while falling down and then maintained control while staying in bounds.

Already up 17-7 at the time, Houston was then able to run another three minutes off the clock before kicking a 37-yard field goal. The Texans would later add another field goal, winning 23-7 in a game that saw Johnson catch seven passes for 68 yards.

The 33-year-old wideout is on pace for 88 receptions this season, but he's averaging his fewest yards per catch (11.5) since 2006 and has caught only one touchdown through 10 games.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans broke a franchise record for most receiving yards over a three-game period upon catching a 56-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 27-7 win over the Washington Redskins, per Greg Auman of The Tampa Bay Times.

The game-sealing touchdown catch, which was Evans' seventh and final reception of the day, gave him 458 receiving yards over the last three games, with 209 of those coming in Sunday's contest alone.

The previous team record of 438 yards over a three-game span was set by Antonio Bryant in 2008, while Vincent Jackson's 382 in 2012 has fallen back to third place, per Auman.

Evans started the record-breaking run with seven catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 9 loss to the Cleveland Browns, and he then caught another seven balls for 125 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Falcons.

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt had an eventful game in Sunday's 23-7 win over the Cleveland Browns, with his big performance including both the 10th forced fumble and 10th recovered fumble of his career, per ESPN Stats & Info.

In the first half alone, Watt had a touchdown reception, a sack, a tackle for loss on a run play and a pair of roughing the kicker penalties, in addition to the forced fumble and recovered fumble, according to John McClain of The Houston Chronicle.

Watt would later add another tackle for loss in the second half, finishing his day with five takedowns (four solo), three of which went for a loss.

The 25-year-old defensive end, who debuted in 2011, is the only player in the NFL with 10 or more forced fumbles and 10 or more recovered fumbles over the last four seasons.
