Carson Palmer Exits Cardinals Win with Injury

Carson Palmer Exits Cardinals Win with Injury Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(GLENDALE, Ariz.) -- The Arizona Cardinals improved to an NFL-best 8-1 on the season with a 31-14 win over St. Louis on Sunday. However, team officials are fearful that quarterback Carson Palmer suffered a torn ACL in the fourth quarter and could be out for the rest of the year. Arizona was trailing the 3 and 6 Rams 14-10 entering the fourth quarter, but were driving when Palmer went down. The 34-year-old was carted off the field after clutching the same left knee that was surgically repaired in 2006 after tearing his ACL and MCL in a playoff game against Pittsburgh. "We don't know anything about Carson's injury or the length, whatever it is yet," coach Bruce Arians said. "He will be evaluated and get an MRI and everything and we will know something by tomorrow and hopefully by Tuesday." With their leader sidelined, and the scoreboard not in their favor, the Cardinals turned to Drew Stanton and immediately took control. Stanton found Josh Brown on a 48-yard touchdown pass to take a 17-10 lead before the defense sealed the deal. Patrick Peterson picked off an Austin Davis pass and ran it back 30 yards before Antonio Cromartie recovered a fumble and scored, putting the game out of reach for St. Louis. Davis threw two interceptions for the Rams, who were held to 244 total yards of offense. Prior to the injury, Palmer was 25-for-36 for 241 yards and an interception.  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Rodgers Ties NFL Record in Packers Rout

Rodgers Ties NFL Record in Packers Rout Tom Lynn /Getty Images(GREEN BAY Wisc.) -- Aaron Rodgers tied an NFL record by throwing six touchdowns in the first half as Green Bay walloped the Chicago Bears 55-14 on Sunday night at Lambeau Field. The Packers (6-3) jumped out to a 45-0 lead before Chicago (3-6) finally got on the board in the third quarter. "We just kind of got things going our way," Rodgers said. "The line did a good job of giving me time to extend plays. If you extend plays, you look down the field and there's Jordy Nelson. He made some nice catches." Nelson had six catches for 152 yards and two touchdowns in the win. Rodgers' six touchdown passes tied the Green Bay record for most scoring tosses in a game, while also tying Daryle Lamonica's NFL record for most touchdown passes in a half, which he set in 1969 while playing for Oakland. All six of the Packers' scores in the first half came from a Rodgers pass. It began with a 1-yard strike to Brandon Bostick in the first and included scoring plays of 73, 56, and 40-yards. Chicago finally found the end zone when Jay Cutler hit Brandon Marshall for a 45-yard touchdown in the first half.  Rodgers finished the day with 325 passing yards in the win while Cutler tossed one touchdown for 272 yards to go along with two interceptions. Cutler's second interception was returned 82 yards by Casey Hayward for a touchdown. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

(5) Alabama Outlasts (16) LSU in Overtime American Football Field Yard Lines IStockPhoto/ Thinkstock(BATON ROUGE, La.) -- It was another battle to remember as 5th-ranked Alabama survived against 16th-rated Louisiana State (LSU), winning 20-13 in overtime at Tiger Stadium on Saturday night. The Crimson Tide (8-1) rallied twice for the win, keeping their playoff hopes alive. The Tigers (7-3) kept Alabama off the scoreboard for the entire first quarter, while taking a 7-0 lead when Anthony Jennings found Malachi Dupre for a 14-yard touchdown pass. LSU's defense continued to be dominant until Blake Sims connected with Amari Cooper for a game-tying 23-yard score. Alabama then took the lead on a field goal with nine seconds to play before the half. Both offenses struggled to break through in the second half with LSU tying the game on a field goal in the third quarter, the lone score of the frame. The Tigers then went up 13-10 on Colby Delahoussaye's 39-yard field goal with 50 seconds left in regulation. With the game seemingly in hand, Delahoussaye shanked the ensuing kickoff out of bounds, giving Alabama the ball on their own 35-yard line. Sims then led the Crimson Tide down to LSU's 10 before relying on Adam Griffith to send the game into overtime. Griffith converted on a 27-yard field goal and Sims hit DeAndrew White on a 6-yard fade route in overtime to take the lead. On LSU's possession, Jennings scrambled on fourth down but his pass into the end zone was knocked to the turf. The win, coupled with Auburn's loss at Texas A&M, puts Alabama alone in second place in the SEC West. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

The win was important not only to the Horned Frogs playoff aspirations, but also to their hopes of a Big 12 Championship. TCU (8-1) jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to Boykin's two yard touchdown run and 10 yard scoring pass to David Porter. The Wildcats (7-2) did not get on the board until the final minute of the first quarter when quarterback Jake Waters connected with Tyler Lockett on a 70-yard scoring strike. The Horned Frogs added a field goal in the second quarter, taking a 10-point lead into halftime. Out of the break, Boykin added to his impressive day with a 19-yard touchdown scamper, flipping over a defender at the goal line. Boykin tallied a career high 123 rushing yards and three touchdowns, scoring again on a 23-yard run in the fourth quarter that made it 41-14, while also adding 219 yards through the air. Waters threw for 291 yards and a pair of touchdowns for Kansas State, but was also picked off as the Wildcats mustered just 34 rushing yards. The loss snapped a five-game win streak for Kansas State and created a three-way tie atop the Big 12. Both Kansas State, TCU and 12th-ranked Baylor are all 5-1 in conference with three games to play.

Barrett Leads (14) Buckeyes Past (8) Michigan State

Barrett Leads (14) Buckeyes Past (8) Michigan State Kirk Irwin/Getty Images(EAST LANSING, Mich.) -- A 21-point second quarter helped the 14th-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes to a 49-37 win over Big 10 rival Michigan State on Saturday night. Quarterback J.T. Barrett accounted for five touchdowns, three passing and two rushing, as the Buckeyes upset the 8th-rated Spartans. After Michigan State (7-2) went up 7-0 early, Barrett capped off a 4-play, 71-yard drive with a five yard touchdown run to knot the score. He would do the same early in the second quarter, rushing in from one yard out to make it a 14-14 contest. The Spartans would eventually regain the lead on Jeremy Langford's touchdown run, but Barrett connected with Michael Thomas on a 79-yard scoring pass on the following play. The Buckeyes (8-1) would get another big play before the half when Barrett found Devin Smith for a 44-yard touchdown strike, giving Ohio State a 28-21 lead at halftime. The second half was more of the same as the Buckeyes offense rolled over one of the top defenses in the country. After a Michigan State field goal cut the deficit to 28-24, Ohio State scored 14 unanswered points to put the game out of reach. Although the Spartans were able to get a quick touchdown, cutting the lead to 42-31, the Buckeyes marched right down the field for another score just two minutes later. With the win, Ohio State avenges a loss to the Spartans in last year's Big 10 Championship Game while also re-affirming their spot as the dominant team in the conference.

Bengals’ Still Will Have Daughter In Attendance for First Time

Bengals’ Still Will Have Daughter In Attendance for First Time Tom Cammett/Diamond Images/Getty Images(CINCINNATTI, OH) -- Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still has had to deal with more adversity than most NFL players will ever experience. This Thursday, he will likely experience an unrivaled type of joy, as his daughter will be able to attend her first NFL game to see her father play. In June, Leah Sari Still was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma cancer. In late August, Devon was cut from the team.  The Bengals re-signed him to their practice squad the next day to help him pay for the medical costs. On September 10, the Bengals signed Devon to their active roster. This week Leah Sari has recovered enough from her surgery that she will be able to travel to Cincinnati to see her father and the Bengals challenge the Browns on Thursday Night Football. "This is the first time she has been able to travel," Devon said. "I know she is excited to come to Cincinnati and see what Cincinnati has to offer her." Life on the road and being on an active roster has been tough for Devon, as he has been away from his daughter. "I know it will be different for me because I'll be able to see my daughter, I'll be able to touch her, I'll be able to hug her, which is totally different than being able to FaceTime her,"  Devon said.  I can't wait until she shows up here Wednesday and is able to go to her first game this year." Devon has greatly appreciated the support fans and other teams have shown this season.  A couple of weeks ago, when the Bengals traveled to New England, the Patriots cheerleaders wore Still's jersey in support.  Patriots owner Robert Kraft also donated $25,000 to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in Leah's name. This week, Devon thinks the crowd reaction will be special. "I think the crowd will go crazy," Devon said. "They've been supporting her the whole time with her being all the way in Philadelphia. I know her being here in Cincinnati and them having the chance to see her, it's going to get the crowd kind of hyped."  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Colts Trample Giants Behind Luck’s Four Touchdowns

Colts Trample Giants Behind Luck’s Four Touchdowns Joe Robbins/Getty Images(EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.) -- Andrew Luck threw four touchdown passes to go along with 354 passing yards as the Indianapolis Colts rolled over the New York Giants, 40-24, on Monday night. It was the seventh straight game that Luck tossed for more than 300 yards, a franchise record. The scoring started off slow for Luck and the Colts (6-3), settling for a solitary Adam Vinatieri field goal in the first quarter. Indy's offense got going in the second when Luck found Coby Fleener for a 32-yard touchdown pass to make it a 10-0 game. Three of Luck's scoring throws went for more than 30 yards, with all four going to a different receiver. While the offense was firing on all cylinders, the Colts' defense kept New York (3-5) off-balance all night, sending them to their third straight loss. The Giants struggled to find a rhythm, scoring only a field goal in the first half. They were able to cut the lead to 23-10 on an Andre Williams 1-yard touchdown run, but the Colts responded with 17 straight points to put the game out of reach. Manning finished the day with 359 passing yards and two touchdowns, although both scoring throws came late in the fourth quarter. Luck used nine different receivers during the game, with Fleener catching four passes for a team-high 77 yards. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

It was the eighth straight home win for Miami (5-3) over the Chargers (5-4), who have not won in South Florida since 1982. The win was an emotional one for Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin, whose father passed away on Friday, causing him to miss two days of practice. "I really have to give our assistant coaches and our players a ton of credit," said Philbin. "I kind of just showed up for the game." Miami's defense set the tone, forcing three interceptions and a fumble of Philip Rivers, while Tannehill racked up 288 yards in the win. Tannehill's three touchdown passes were to three different receivers while Lamar Miller also ran for a score in the Dolphins most lopsided win since 1995.

Va.) -- Jaden Oberkrom's 37-yard field goal as time expired helped number seven Texas Christian University (TCU) erase a 13-point deficit and defeat 20th ranked West Virginia 31-30 on Saturday afternoon.

West Virginia (6-3) led 13-0 with less that four minutes to play in the first quarter before Deante' Gray caught a 47-yard touchdown pass from Trevone Boykin to put the Horned Frogs on the board. Following a scoreless second quarter, TCU took the lead five minutes into the third when Boykin scampered into the end zone for a 14-13 lead. The Mountaineers were able to regain their 13-point lead though, scoring twice in 25 seconds. After Dreamius Smith's five-yard touchdown run, Terrell Chestnut picked up a fumble and ran 35-yards for another touchdown and a 27-14 West Virginia lead. Once again, the Horned Frogs found a way to get back into the game. Trailing 30-21 early in the fourth quarter, TCU drove down the field before B.J. Catalon ran in from six yards out to get within one possession. TCU then forced a West Virginia punt with 2:07 to play and reached the Mountaineers 25-yard line to set up Oberkrom's heroics. Despite the win, the Horned Frogs were held to a season-low 389 yards of offense one week after putting up 82 points in a win over Texas Tech. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

ESPN: Lions’ Fairley Out 4-5 Weeks

ESPN: Lions’ Fairley Out 4-5 Weeks Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images(DETROIT, MI) -- After a scary collision with teammate Ndamokung Suh, Nick Fairley's season appeared to be over. The young defensive tackle's knee bent awkwardly as he attempted to make a tackle against Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan and needed assistance off the field. According to a report from ESPN Chicago's Michael C. Wright, Fairley has a sprained MCL and PCL in his knee and will be out four to five weeks - much less than what was feared. This is good news for both the Lions and Fairley.  The young nose tackle has been an integral part of the improved Lions defense this season. The Lions are holding opponents to less than 300 yards per game. As for Fairley, the Lions declined a team option that would have kept him under contract through 2015.  He would have been set to enter free agency this coming offseason and a severe knee injury would have hurt his market.   Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Redskins Upset Cowboys in Overtime Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(DALLAS,TX) -- Colt McCoy just got his first start as a quarterback in the NFL since 2001; he made the most of it. McCoy got the nod over Kirk Cousins and helped lead the Washington Redskins to a 20-17 overtime upset over the Cowboys in Dallas. With sharp passes and smart decisions, McCoy was 25-30 for 299 yards while methodically moving the ball against the Cowboys defense. McCoy also showed his legs were still fresh as he scored a touchdown from seven yards out to break a 10-10 tie in the fourth quarter. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered an injury in the third quarter and was forced to the locker room. Backup Brandon Weeden entered and tossed a 25-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jason Witten in the fourth quarter to tie the game at 17-17. After receiving an injection in the locker room, Romo returned, but a drive he began to lead stalled at the Dallas 32. The game entered overtime and McCoy led a nine-play, 58-yard drive that set up a go ahead field goal by Kai Forbath. Romo tried to counter, but the Redskins defense made several plays to break up contested passes and in the end, the Cowboys simply ran out of downs.   Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
