There was at least one underlying theme in Week 10 of the 2023 NFL season: a win is a win.
The Arizona Cardinals, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks won on Sunday with a game-winning field goal as time expired. Those teams made history as NFL Research said they had the most winning scores when the clock hit triple zero in regulation in a single week in league history.

The games from start to finish were just the tip of the iceberg when it came to some of Sunday’s statistical highlights.
Texans rookie CJ Stroud led the way in victory against the Cincinnati Bengals for the second straight week. Stroud’s play helped Houston set up for a game-winning Matt Ammendola field goal.
Stroud was 23 of 39 for 356 passing yards, a touchdown pass and an interception. He was helped by running back Devin Singletary’s 150 rushing yards and rushing touchdown and wide receiver Noah Brown’s seven receptions for 172 yards. Those incredible numbers put them on the same level as some members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
