BALTIMORE (AP) — It wasn't just that Patrick Mahomes threw for a ton of yards and four touchdowns. Most impressive was how he did it. Mahomes juked, danced, and jumped in and out of the pocket.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carson Wentz and Kirk Cousins remained winless. Mitchell Trubisky got benched. Dwayne Haskins took a step backward. It was a rough day for some of the NFL’s under-fire quarterbacks. Wentz threw two more picks but used his legs on a game-tying touchdown drive as the Philadelphia...
