The Rams defense did their part, forcing four turnovers against the Texans, whose offense again fell flat without Deshaun Watson.
The 49ers are no longer winless thanks to the Giants.
The San Francisco 49ers finally broke a season-long losing streak, beating the Giants 31-21. San Francisco’s offense, which has been terrible all season, managed to pile up 474 total yards, with 186 coming on the ground. With the win, the Cleveland Browns are now the only winless team left in the N.F.L.
49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard connected on an 83-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Goodwin and a 47-yard scoring pass to Garrett Celek during the second quarter as the 49ers took advantage of another listless effort by the Giants to win for the first time under Coach Kyle Shanahan.
The 83-yard scoring play was the longest for the 49ers since Tim Rattay and receiver Brandon Lloyd hooked up on an 89-yard touchdown pass against Dallas in September 2005.
Saints’ ground game is unstoppable.
The New Orleans Saints have Drew Brees, one of the best quarterbacks in the league, but didn’t need him on Sunday. The Saints knew that the Buffalo Bills were vulnerable against the run, and they took advantage of that to win huge on the road, 47-10. As a team they rushed for 298 yards and six touchdowns, with Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara each rushing for more than 100 yards and third-stringer Trey Edmunds chipping in with 48. The Saints outgained the Bills in total yardage 482 to 198.
The Saints’ defense was just as dominating in limiting Buffalo (5-4) to 198 yards and 10 first downs. And five of those first downs came on Buffalo’s meaningless final drive, which ended with the backup quarterback Nathan Peterman hitting Nick O’Leary on a 7-yard touchdown pass.
New Orleans set a franchise record by scoring six touchdowns rushing, the most allowed by Buffalo in team history.
