Forsett the star man for Baltimore over the New Orleans Saints

We had two games on Monday night football tonight after the Buffalo Bills were forced to relocate to Detroit and take on the New York Jets and the New Orleans Saints played host to the Baltimore Ravens.

We were given a lot of memorable moments tonight but the winner on the night was without doubt the Ravens Runningback Justin Forsett who had a career night.

Forsett was instrumental to the Ravens picking up an impressive 34-27 win in New Orleans ending an NFL record 12 game winning streak at home during Primetime for the Saints.

Forsett who is now averaging a league best 5.8 yards per rush this season ran for 182 yards off of 22 carries against the Saints.

The Ravens Runningback got two of the Ravens four touchdowns in the game as they also kicked two field goals to secure victory.


Drew Brees however dominated the battle of the two Quarterbacks as the Saints shot caller threw for over 400 yards and three touchdowns.

It wasn't enough for the Saints who were down by 14 with less than three minutes left in the game.

New Orleans picked up a late touchdown and attempted the onside kick but it was recovered by the Ravens to end the game.

Baltimore are now 4-0 in games against NFC South opposition this season and have now tied all of their divisional rivals on seven wins.

Meanwhile the Saints have lost top spot in the NFC South as they drop to 4-7 on the season and now linger behind the also 4-7 Atlanta Falcons who are 4-0 in divisional matches this season.

Bills run riot

The Buffalo Bills playing in the changed stadium of Ford Field in Detroit showed that a change of venues was no issue as they annihilated the New York Jets 38-3.

The Jets never really stood a chance here as the Bills scored five touchdowns and kicked a field goal in the game to get the big win.

The Bills defense however came away with one interception from Michael Vick and a grand total of seven sacks on the night as they crushed what hopes the Jets had of a second straight win. 

Perhaps even worse for the Jets was that they lost starting Quarterback Michael Vick in the game and were forced once again to turn to the much criticised Geno Smith.

There was however one big play in this game from Bills Wide Receiver Robert Woods who did his best to try and emulate Odell Beckham Jr's incredible catch from Sunday night.

Woods caught the ball and used his helmet to bring it under control in what was without doubt the play of the night.

The AFC East clash has now given the Bills a winning record and after the Miami Dolphins loss to the Denver Broncos has tied the two teams in second in the division.

Both teams are still in the hunt for a play-off spot but right now occupy the 10th and 11th seed positions in the AFC so have a lot of work left to do.
