NFL Week 8 highlights

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

This past Sunday boasted some truly exciting ups and downs at the end of Week 8! In a vicious game between Dallas and Detroit, wide receiver Calvin Johnson had an incredible 329 yards receiving, while Jason Garrett just couldn’t seem to prevent the Lions from making a loss-defying comeback. The Atlanta Falcons continued their downward spiral in a 27-13 loss to the Cardinals, leaving them with a horrid 2-5 record. The Bengals, whose defense has been rock solid all year, are now busting out an overpowered offense as well. Andy Dalton threw five touchdowns against the Jets, ensuring that Cincinnati is not only the king of the AFC North, but also a contender for top cat in the AFC overall. Kansas City’s Chiefs are absolutely killing it right now, with an 8-0 record after their 23-17 win over the Cleveland Browns.
