Le’Veon Bell ran wild and the Steelers handed the Chiefs their first loss

After getting just 15 carries in a 30-9 loss to the Jaguars, Steelers tailback Le’Veon Bell told reporters he thought more touches was the formula for winning. Against the 5-0 Chiefs, he proved himself right.

The Vikings could try to pick on a Baltimore defense that is allowing the third-most rushing yards in the NFL, 141.3 per game. Conversely, Minnesota’s rush defense ranks third best at 78.7 yards allowed per game.

The Ravens hold a 3-2 edge in their all-time series with the Vikings. The last meeting was on a snowy Baltimore day in December 2015. The Ravens prevailed 29-26 with the teams scoring five touchdowns in the final 2:09.

Last year’s NFL rushing leader left no doubt that he will keep fighting a legal battle that so far has lasted six weeks with hearings in three courts in three states.

A fourth hearing — and the second in a New York court — should happen before the end of the month.

It’s fighting for your name, that’s what it is, Elliott said. I think my representatives have done a good job just going out there and fighting for me. It’s been a lot of hard work and it’s definitely a tough job. They’ve definitely served me well.

The best teams in the NFL don’t hand out contracts to reward play from the past, but to invest in a player for the future. Giving Beckham a huge deal would only be smart if the Giants believe the fast start to his career will continue for many years to come.

there’s a fair debate as to whether the Titans even should’ve played him.

It’ll be fascinating to see how Hundley plays, both in terms of saving the Packers this season and how it might impact his future. As was the case for Jimmy Garoppolo last season, Hundley is entering a high-profile role during the third year of his rookie deal. If he plays well, the Packers would be forced into a compelling quandary. They obviously aren’t about to move on from Rodgers, who will turn 34 in December. The Patriots can see the end of the 40-year-old Tom Brady’s career coming; the Packers are still years away from replacing Rodgers and can’t justify keeping Hundley around as a backup.

Thanks to that play, the result was mostly academic. The Colts’ comeback attempt sputtered and Derrick Henry sealed the deal with a 72-yard touchdown run, moving the Titans to 3-3 and saving them from a deep hole in the AFC South race. Mariota finished with 306 yards on 23-of-32 passing, making the important plays even when the injury took away his bootleg/scrambling ability.

Now tied with the Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars on top of the division, the Titans’ season is alive and well. They get the hapless Cleveland Browns next Sunday before a Week 8 bye, giving Mariota some much-needed time to rest that hamstring. If they fell to 2-4, the picture would be much grimmer, and that Week 4 boat-racing by the Texans would loom much larger. Getting back to .500 means everything in this critical juncture of the season.

Mariota clearly wasn’t 100 percent Monday, and there’s a fair debate as to whether the Titans even should’ve played him. But despite the flaws and concerning play early on, Mariota gutted it out and delivered the plays that Cassel would never make. As a result, the Titans avoided a bad home loss and get to recalibrate after their slow start, with all their hopes and goals still attainable. That’s the kind of luxury a team can afford when it has a true leader under center like Mariota.

Eagles vs. Panthers 2017: Start time, TV schedule for ‘Thursday Night Football’

The best game of Week 6 might just be the first game of Week 6. Two of the NFC’s hottest teams will throw down in Charlotte when the 4-1 Philadelphia Eagles face the 4-1 Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football.

Except, the Niners really don’t seem to be panicking. Are they frustrated by their 0-6 start? No doubt, especially since they’ve lost five in a row by three points or fewer and are the only team of the Super Bowl era to hold that distinction. But the reality is that the 49ers knew this was going to take time and the fact that they are playing teams close while still not losing ground in next year’s draft order isn’t the worst thing in the world. Even if they won’t admit it publicly. — Nick Wagoner

The Bucs surrendered 38 points to the Cardinals, are now 2-3 and sit in fourth place in the NFC South. Even worse? Quarterback Jameis Winston now has a shoulder injury and the first-place Panthers come to town in two weeks. They can’t count on having the same five-game win streak they had at the end of last season either — not when four out of their final six games are against divisional opponents. — Jenna Laine

This was a 4 before Sunday’s game, but then Adrian Peterson ran for 134 yards and two touchdowns, and the Cardinals’ offense was revitalized. However, as good as Arizona’s offense — and defense, for that matter — looked in the first half, they both looked as bad in the second half, getting outscored 33-7 in the final 27:06. If the Cardinals can fix their issues that allowed Tampa Bay to get back in a game it had no business making close, then there won’t be a reason to panic. But if the Cardinals struggle through their next three games, all division matchups, then the panic meter could top out. — Josh Weinfuss

NFL Dad, Week 6: Sorry, Aaron Rodgers. Have some birthday cake.

My daughter turns three this week, so we hosted her birthday party before the games kicked off. It was a confetti-themed party. There was confetti inside the balloons, over-sized beach balls with colorful spots, sprinkles on the cake, and more sprinkles at the cookie-decorating station.

Not that a theme matters to my daughter. She wants two things out of a birthday party: pizza and cake. Everything else is window dressing.

They’re learning from last year. They’re learning how to finish games and just the overall consistency from the leaders leading this football team. They are sacrificing each other — themselves for the football team. It’s a fun thing to watch.

Obviously, you want to close them out and put your foot on their throat, but it doesn’t always work out, Redskins coach Jay Gruden told the Washington Post. They have 46 guys on their team that are trying not to allow that to happen. They just made some plays. We made some unfortunate penalties and turnovers. The turnover was huge. You’ve got the ball at the 44-yard line, second and three, instead they’ve got the ball on your 2-yard line. It’s a huge difference.

Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins has been quite efficient this season while completing 105 of 158 passes for 1,334 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions.

We did a good job as an offense, Cousins told the Washington Post. There were a lot of good decisions, a lot of good plays made, a lot of third-down conversions in big moments, a lot of crucial drives where we had to churn the clock and come away with points. So I was proud of the way our offense played today. It wasn’t perfect. There were a couple of mistakes, but all in all, we did a lot of good things.
