Top 5 performances from 49ers Week 6 win vs. the Rams

Kyle Allen became the first undrafted quarterback to win his first five National Football League starts since Kurt Warner by leading the Carolina Panthers over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, but even before he did that, the Bucs were lauding Cam Newton's replacement.

"But when I say that, I don't think we're looking outside to fill that void immediately".

Winton failed to do that on a day when he was under heavy pressure behind a makeshift offensive line that had backups Josh Wells and Earl Watford starting on the right side.

Eagles opponents have rushed the ball 94 times through five games, with Philadelphia stuffing the play 27 times or 28.7% of the time.

But the tone was set on the opening snap when Winston tried to fit in a pass to Mike Evans only to see James Bradberry step in for the interception that set up a field goal for Carolina.

Newton has not yet resumed practicing, and the Panthers will not even consider having him play in an actual game again until his foot injury is 100 percent healed. "He does a great job, and I was happy with his performance and the things he did setting the tone".

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook scores on a 1-yard touchdown run ahead of Philadelphia Eagles inside linebacker Zach Brown, left, during the second half Sunday, Oct. 13, 2019, in Minneapolis. The Rams scored on the first series of the game, then didn't get anything going the rest of the contest. The last time that happened, in 2013, they went to the Super Bowl and won the Lombardi Trophy. After a five-pick fiasco Sunday, Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said the performance didn't alter his perception of his QB.

Brexit deal 'still possible' says Barnier as deadline looms
EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier was updating the remaining 27 member states in Brussels on Sunday afternoon. Prime Minister Boris Johnson insists the country will leave at the end of the month with or without a deal.

"He has a habit of trying to be Superman and that's been a problem in the's just a matter of knowing when to quit on a play". That's been a problem in the past.

Allen finished the game 20/32 for 227 passing yards, two touchdowns and a passer rating of 104.6. "I have a lot of respect for him, and if you're trying to write a story about how it was a motivator this week, it wasn't, because I didn't know about it".

"We can continue to get better on offense". "Throw the damn ball away".

"No. I look at the reasons why".

Chubb opened the scoring with a 7-yard touchdown run, and Mayfield also found the end zone on the ground from 10 yards out.

"We put ourselves in tough positions", defensive lineman Ndamukomng Suh said. "We didn't hold up our end of the bargain".
