Graham Gano is congratulated after his 63-yard field goal.

Rams and Chiefs remain undefeated, Gano slays Giants from long range

Both sides go 5-0 after a busy evening of NFL action.

THE LA EAMS Rams and Kansas City Chiefs have been the class of the NFL this season, but the last two undefeated teams faced stiff tests on Sunday.

Both teams were up to the challenge to move to 5-0. The Chiefs easily dispatched the formidable Jacksonville Jaguars 30-14 thanks to a strong game from quarterback Patrick Mahomes (313 yards passing, one rushing score).

The Rams sweated out a 33-31 win over the Seattle Seahawks before a hostile crowd at CenturyLink Field. Todd Gurley scored three touchdowns and had 113 total yards.

While the surprising Cincinnati Bengals are not undefeated, they are the only 4-1 team in the NFL after the week-five results, as they erupted for 27 points in the second half to top the Miami Dolphins 27-17.

Elsewhere, kickers decided games in the most dramatic fashion — both good and bad. Graham Gano nailed a 63-yard field goal — tied for the second-longest kick in NFL history — with a second remaining to help the Carolina Panthers stave off an upset bid by the New York Giants 33-31.

In Detroit, Green Bay kicker Mason Crosby had a nightmarish day, missing four of five field goals and his only extra-point attempt, leaving 13 potential points on the table. The Packers lost 31-23 to the Lions.

Cleveland Browns rookie Greg Joseph kicked a hooking 37-yard shot that barely cleared the crossbar at the end of overtime to help top the Baltimore Ravens 12-9 and even their record at 2-2-1.

Finally, Houston Texans kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn hit a 36-yard field goal in overtime in a 19-16 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
