Sport King's 4 TD passes lead No. 13 Miami past Pittsburgh, 31-19
Here's how the Eagles can claim the NFC East title with 7 wins
The Eagles have by far the toughest remaining schedule among their NFC East counterparts, so winning the division won't be easy.Still, the Eagles are just one half-game behind Dallas (2-3) with 11 games left. The Cowboys, meanwhile, just lost star quarterback Dak Prescott for the season after he suffered a compound fracture and dislocation of his ankle.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — D’Eriq King threw four touchdown passes and No. 13 Miami beat Pittsburgh 31-19 on Saturday.
Will Mallory caught two of King’s scoring passes as the Hurricanes (4-1, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) bounced back from a 42-17 loss at top-ranked Clemson last week.
Blockbuster moves we’d love to see before NFL trade deadline
The 2020 NFL trade deadline is less than a month away. The common theme around the NFL right now is that said trade deadline will be more active than in the past. This is interesting given that recent years have seen a bevy of trade activity around Halloween. © Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports Is there a scenario where the Bengals would trade superstar wide receiver A.J. Green? A total of four teams find themselves without a win at the quarter pole of the season. Another six teams are undefeated. These are among those we expect to be most active.
The Panthers (3-3, 2-3) lost their third straight and were without senior quarterback Kenny Pickett, who suffered an ankle injury against Boston College last week. Pickett leads the nation with 1,389 passing yards but didn’t travel with the team to South Florida.
Redshirt freshman Joey Yellen replaced Pickett, completing 22 of 46 passes for 277 yards and a touchdown.
Alex Kessman kicked four field goals for the Panthers and became Pitt's all-time leader with 57. Kessman surpassed Chris Blewitt, who had 55 field goals from 2013-16.
Pitt rallied from a 21-6 deficit with 10 unanswered points on Kessman’s record-setting third field goal and Yellen’s 1-yard touchdown pass to Daniel Moraga early in the third quarter. Marcus Williams’ 38-yard interception return to the Miami 1 set up Moraga’s score.
Fantasy football waiver wire: Eagles' Boston Scott poised to assume starting role in Week 7
Likely absence of starter Miles Sanders makes Boston Scott the top addition to Week 7 fantasy rosters; WR Keelan Cole offers consistent production.Unless they've been dropped a few weeks ago by panicky fantasy GMs, high-upside players who have the potential to be long-term starters just aren't out there. Le'Veon Bell's value certainly jumped after the Kansas City Chiefs picked him up, but he's unlikely to be available in most leagues.
But Miami regained its double-digit advantage on King’s 45-yard touchdown pass to Mallory.
Kessman’s fourth conversion with 31 seconds remaining in the third quarter made it 28-19 before Jose Borregales gave Miami another double-digit cushion with his 37-yard field goal late in the fourth quarter.
The Hurricanes struck first on King’s 35-yard touchdown pass to Cam’Ron Harris midway through the first quarter. King retreated from an attempted draw and found an open Harris down the middle.
King connected with Mallory on a 6-yard score with 6:44 remaining in the second quarter for a 14-0 lead.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones laments 'glaring difference' between Dak Prescott, Andy Dalton
In their first game without Dak Prescott, the Cowboys fell flat. Owner Jerry Jones noticed a distinct difference in quarterback play during the loss.But this time was different.
Kessman kicked two field goals late in the second quarter and got the Panthers within 14-6. Pitt settled for the second field goal after being unable to capitalize on a drive starting at the Miami 12 that was set by Harris Ford’s 25-yard interception return.
King found an open Mike Harley down the right sideline for a 38-yard touchdown pass in Miami’s opening drive of the second half. Harley eluded a Panthers defender before reaching the end zone for his first TD reception of the season.
Pittsburgh: Hosts No. 4 Notre Dame next Saturday.
Miami: Plays its third night home game of the season next Saturday against Virginia.

Patriots' Cam Newton hard on himself entering Week 7: ' I just haven’t been good' .
In his last two games, Newton has thrown for 162 and 157 yards, tossing three interceptions in that span. The 31-year-old has been more successful on the ground, rushing for 225 yards and five touchdowns. If the Patriots want to avoid dropping further in the standings, Newton's arm will have to be much better against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
