201310271522553346919

Week 8 was heavy on the byes as six teams had the week off, what was left was near record breaking. In Detroit, Calvin Johnson and the Lions welcomed in Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys for a showdown of elite receivers. While Dez boasted all week that he is the best in the league, Calvin showed it on the field by amassing 329 yards, seven short of the all time record. Even with that amazing day, it was a one yard quarterback sneak off of a fake spike that made the difference as the Lions slid by the Cowboys, 31-30. In Kansas City, the Cleveland Browns were eager to give the Chiefs their first loss, and even with a third string quarterback in Jason Campbell, the gave the chiefs all they can handle. In the end the Chiefs still came out on top, 23-17. Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints welcomed the Buffalo Bills to town, and the Saints gave a treat to all their fans. Brees and the returning Jimmy Graham hooked up for a pair of touchdowns and Brees spread out three more as the Saints rolled to a 35-17 victory. Here’s a look at the rest of this weeks scores:
