Cincinnati Bengals rookie John Ross plays, makes big mistake
Cincinnati Bengals rookie first-round pick John Ross was active for just the third time this year in Sunday’s 24-20 loss at Tennessee. But as was the case in his previous two games, Ross was a non-factor. Ross played just six snaps, bringing his season total to 17, and finished with no catches on one target — a deep ball in which he stopped on the route, resulting in an overthrown incompletion on third and 5.

Cincinnati Bengals rack up huge penalty numbers in loss to Titans
The two penalties that led to Burfict’s ejection were part of a bigger problem as the Bengals were flagged a season-high 12 times for a season-high 84 yards in the 24-20 loss at Tennessee on Sunday. It marked the most penalties the Bengals have had since committing 13 in a 37-37 tie against Carolina on Oct. 12, 2014, and the most in a non-overtime game since committing 13 in a 31-24 win at Green Bay on Sept. 20, 2009.

Paul Daugherty: All these Cincinnati Bengals can do is keep fighting
There is a lot of going back to the drawing board in losing locker rooms. There are mirrors to be looked into and pride to be leaned on. If you’re using phrases such as “stick together’’ and “keep fighting" you probably just lost. Winners don’t discuss their “frustration." They aren’t “surprised." “Sticking together" is an assumption, not an option. They “fight hard," though they don’t usually talk about it. Fighting hard is noble but not productive in play-for-pay leagues.

Vontaze Burfict of Cincinnati Bengals ejected for first time in career
Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was ejected in the second quarter of Cincinnati's 24-20 loss to the Titans on Sunday because of contact with an official. Burfict was in on a tackle of Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota, who was diving for the end zone on a run. The officials marked Mariota short of the touchdown, and shortly after, Burfict appeared to make contact with the official.

Pittsburgh Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster, Le'Veon Bell re-enact choking incident during TD celebration
Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster said Sunday's touchdown celebration with Le'Veon Bell re-enacted A.J. Green choking Jalen Ramsey, but it didn't go as planned. "Terrible," said Smith-Schuster after the Steelers' 20-17 victory over the Colts. "It's probably my worst one."

Marcus Mariota shows he can rescue Titans from their mistakes
The first 55 minutes didn't matter. The Tennessee Titans gave Marcus Mariota the ball in a game that they should've secured a quarter earlier and asked him to bring a win home. And like a true franchise quarterback, Mariota put his head down and did it.

Bengals at Titans Postgame Quotes
I feel for our players, for the opportunity to get ahead in the game and our inability to get it stopped there at the end. Again, we give up a score before halftime, a field goal, and then we give up the score, obviously, at the end of the football game. It’s a 10-point swing right there. Those are huge things. We say we’re not making enough first downs on offense. At one point, I guess, we’re one-and-nine and we’re certainly not getting off the field enough on defense and with the penalties we had today – we come into this game, these guys get in the lot, and we got every call on us today, so we’ve got to do a better job.

Titans catch Bengals in last minute
Facing a third-and-seven for a touchdown and the Bengals trying to hold the Titans to a game-tying field goal, Titans running back DeMarco Murray caught a check-down pass from quarterback Marcus Mariota on the 2 and he powered past cornerback Darqueze Dennard, safety Clayton Fejedelem, and got the ball underneath linebacker Vincent Rey for a touchdown with 36 seconds left that gave Tennessee a 24-20 victory.

Quick hits: 'He has to understand'; Quez's ups annd downs; Deadly double moves; Ross still waits
Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict didn’t talk after getting ejected from Sunday’s game for brushing aside an official’s arm with about five minutes left in the first half. But his head coach was. “He has to understand. I’ve pointed it out in those situations,” said Marvin Lewis, about as drained as he’s ever been after a loss. “Sometimes what happens, you push back and it’s the official. You can’t do that. He knows better. We pay a price, we pay a price because he hurts us when it’s on the field that way, and then he’s not on the field, so both ways.”

Steelers wake up from Indy nightmares with vintage Ben Roethlisberger
Scrambling and bracing for a hit, Ben Roethlisberger stepped up and floated a pretty, off-balance touch pass to Antonio Brown between two defenders. Brown whipped his way across the field for 32 yards and into field goal range in the final seconds. Game sealed for the Pittsburgh Steelers, with Chris Boswell connecting from 33 yards as time expired. Roethlisberger looked like Big Ben, at least for a moment, adding a 69-yard game-winning scoring drive to his personal record books.

Nate Ulrich’s Browns analysis: DeShone Kizer steps up after failed trade for AJ McCarron, yet rib injury interferes, team falls to 0-9
Every time it appears as if DeShone Kizer can’t possibly endure any more physical or psychological punishment, the rookie quarterback of the Browns shows he won’t be broken. Kizer had his best outing of the year Sunday against the Detroit Lions in the aftermath of the Browns attempting but failing to trade for Cincinnati Bengals backup quarterback AJ McCarron before the Oct. 31 deadline.

Jared Goff Entering MVP Conversation While Leading Rams' Juggernaut Offense
Jared Goff had the same grand goals as every other NFL quarterback entering 2017: to win games, and then win the game, all while being the centerpiece of a productive championship-caliber offense. The Los Angeles Rams' pivot has done plenty of winning now, and often in spectacular bulldozing fashion, including in a 33-7 trouncing of the Houston Texans Sunday.

Beathard went 19-of-25 for 288 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and added a rushing score against a Giants defense that was a mere 29th in the league in points allowed per game entering Sunday's contest.

As NFL Civil War Brews, We Must Ask: Who Should Fans Root For?
The biggest NFL story of the day Sunday—and maybe of the past few years—started with a question: Did Dallas owner Jerry Jones leak the inflammatory story from ESPN about Roger Goodell's contractual demands? We'll likely never know, but the question is similar to: Is there gravity?
