Lions 16, Steelers 16 – TIE – Comedy of errors as Steelers, Lions slog to 16-16 tie
The Pittsburgh Steelers and Detroit Lions slogged their way to a 16-16 tie in an ugly nearly four-hour marathon that produced more comedy than highlights. Pittsburgh’s Mason Rudolph completed 30 of 50 passes for 242 yards with a touchdown and an interception while filling in for Ben Roethlisberger, who was placed on the COVID-19 list on Saturday night. Najee Harris ran for 105 yards but the Steelers (5-3-1) saw their four-game winning streak halted in the dank mist at rainy Heinz Field. De’Andre Swift ran for a career-high 130 yards for the Lions (0-8-1), who relied heavily on the run to avoid a ninth straight loss.

Colts 23, Jaguars 17 – Taylor’s big day, blocked punt lead Colts past Jaguars 23-17
Jonathan Taylor rushed for 116 yards and a touchdown, Indianapolis returned a blocked punt for a score and the Colts’ defense held on for a 23-17 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Indy has won four of five to reach .500 for the first time this season. The Jaguars have lost 12 consecutive road games and nine straight against AFC South foes. The Colts went ahead 17-0 but struggled to put the game away. But the Jags’ Trevor Lawrence fumbled near midfield with 50 seconds to go.

NCAAFB – Alabama jumps Cincy to No. 2; OU falls to 12th
Alabama has jumped Cincinnati to No. 2 behind Georgia in The Associated Press college football poll.  Georgia is a unanimous No. 1 for the sixth consecutive week. The switch from Cincinnati at No. 2 to Alabama was more about the Bearcats than the Crimson Tide. Cincinnati remained unbeaten after winning at USF 45-28, but it was the fourth straight week the Bearcats played a team with a losing record and found themselves in a competitive game in the second half.  Meanwhile, Oklahoma dropped eight spots to No. 12 after losing for the first time this season. So behind No. 3 Cincinnati, Oklahoma’s tumble meant No. 4 Oregon, No. 5 Ohio State, No. 6 Notre Dame, No. 7 Michigan State, No. 8 Michigan and No. 9 Oklahoma State all moved up one spot.  The Sooners lost to Baylor who moved up to No. 11 behind No. 10 Mississippi.
