Mike Nugent missed a 36-yard field goal attempt on the final play of overtime Sunday, leaving the Cincinnati Bengals and Carolina Panthers in a 37-37 tie — the NFL’s first this season.

Brian Hoyer passed for 217 yards, leading the Browns to a 31-10 rout over Ben Roethlisberger and the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. Hoyer threw a 51-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Cameron and improved to 6-2 as Cleveland’s starter as the surprising Browns beat the Steelers for just the third time in 23 games. [more...]

Atkinson skated the puck out of the corner and into an opening in the slot, then fired a wrister that ticked off the glove of Sabres goaltender Jhonas Enroth and into the net for a 2-1 Jackets lead. Anisimov then scored with 2:26 remaining. The Blue Jackets improved to 5-6-2 all-time in season openers. They will host the New York Rangers on Saturday in the home opener in Nationwide Arena.
