NFL Week 9 Summary

NFL Week 9 Summary

The Philadelphia Eagles were 1-point underdogs but had one of the biggest covers of the 2013 NFL season in Week 9 at Oakland, winning 49-20. All seven Eagles touchdowns were from quarterback Nick Foles, who completed 22 of 28 passes for 406 yards and no picks -- a perfect 158.3 passer rating. Foles was just the seventh QB ever with seven TD passes and second to do so this year, joining Denver's Peyton Manning, who did it Week 1 against Baltimore. Foles, Manning and Y.A. Tittle are the only quarterbacks to have at least seven touchdowns passes without an interception in a game.

Otherwise there were several close games, including three that went to overtime: Miami won 22-20 at home over Cincinnati as a 3-point dog; Washington 30-24 over visiting San Diego as a 1-point favorite; and Seattle 27-24 over visiting and winless Tampa Bay with the Seahawks as 16-point favorites. Seattle overcame a 21-point deficit, the largest comeback win in team history.

The total was a push on the Dolphins-Bengals game as it ended on a rare safety, costing over bettors what seemed like a lock win on the total and saving the books plenty of money. Miami was just the third team to win on an overtime safety and first since 2004.

Kansas City improved to 9-0 by beating Buffalo 23-13 as a 4.5-point road favorite. The Chiefs became the first team in league history to start 9-0 after posting the worst record in the NFL the previous season. They also became the first team since the 1977 Falcons to allow 17 points or fewer in the first nine games of the season.

The big news of the week was Chicago knocking out Packers QB Aaron Rodgers on  Green Bay's first drive with a broken collarbone early in the Monday night game. The Bears were 10-point road dogs behind backup QB Josh McCown but won 27-20 with Rodgers out.

The underdogs won Week 9, covering seven of the 13 games. Minnesota (+10) at Dallas joined Chicago and Tampa Bay as double-digit dogs to cover the spread. Just four of the 13 games finished under the total in a high-scoring week.
