The Steelers topped Cincinnati 16-10 and earned their 10th straight win over the Bengals (0-11), who are the only winless team in the NFL and set franchise records for worst start and longest losing streak (13). Every other NFL team has at least two wins this season. … The Cleveland Browns extended their winning streak to three games with a 41-24 win over Miami. … The New York Jets extended their winning streak to three games with a 34-3 rout of Oakland.

Carson Wentz walked out of the locker room with his right hand bandaged in ice after the Philadelphia Eagles’ 17-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, the latest setback in a difficult season for the Philly QB. Wentz injured his throwing hand, or possibly his thumb, when he tried to tackle a defensive lineman after he lost a fumble on a muffed handoff in the third quarter. He had X-rays in the locker room that showed no serious damage. After he re-entered the game, Wentz shook his hand in apparent pain on several throws. … The left side of the Saints’ offensive line ran into more problems when left tackle Terron Armstead departed in the first half of New Orleans’ victory over Carolina with an apparent leg injury. The Saints already were without left guard Andrus Peat, who normally slides over to tackle when Armstead is out, so Patrick Omameh subbed in at tackle next to guard Nick Easton, who was filling in at left guard. Two Panthers players also appeared to suffer leg injuries in the first half: defensive tackle Dontari Poe and guard Greg Van Roten.


”You ever been on a boat that’s sinking? It’s not happy. It’s not pleasant. It’s adversity. It’s football. You’ve got to respond to adversity. We didn’t do a good enough job as coaches rallying our troops today.” – Raiders coach Jon Gruden after his team’s 34-3 loss to the Jets.

”I was so hype I think I broke a water bottle. I look up and we were in victory (formation) and said, `Oh, I thought the game was over with already.’ But I’ll get it next time.” – Washington quarterback Dwayne Haskins who missed the final snap of his team’s 19-16 win because he was taking a selfie with a fan who was in the first row. Backup Case Keenum went on the field to kneel down and run out the clock in Washington’s second win of the season.
