sport news NFL WEEK FIVE: Gruden's gone, Jackson, Allen and Herbert go wild and it's ...

Jon Gruden’s gone, the Ravens rally from 19 points down and Josh Allen takes a mighty leap in a statement win for the Bills.

The Cardinals are still the only undefeated team, the Chargers scored 26 points in the fourth quarter and Kadarius Toney makes a rookie mistake. 

An especially tough week to be a kicker – 13 field goals and 13 extra points were missed - while the Jaguars have lost 20 in a row, the second longest streak in NFL history.

CHUCKY'S CHUCKED 

Jon Gruden resigned from the Las Vegas Raiders (3-2) after emails were leaked revealing sexist comments about women referees, homophobic comments about the drafting of a gay player and racist comments.

The 58-year-old was in the fourth year of a 10-year, $100million deal. He released a statement, saying: 'I have resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders.

'I love the Raiders and do not want to be a distraction. Thank you to all the players, coaches, staff, and fans of Raider Nation. I´m sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone.’

The Wall Street Journal reported Gruden used a racist term to describe NFL union chief DeMaurice Smith in a 2011 email to former Washington executive Bruce Allen.

The New York Times reported that Gruden used a gay slur to insult Goodell, calling him 'clueless' and 'anti-football.' He also said Goodell shouldn´t have pressured the Rams to draft 'queers,' a reference to Michael Sam, who was the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team.

Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib came out as gay in June and is the first openly gay player to appear in an NFL game.

In a 2017 email, the Times said Gruden responded to a sexist meme of a female official by saying: 'Nice job roger.'

Raiders special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia will serve as interim head coach.

ACTION JACKSON

Down 19 points against the Colts in the second half, Lamar Jackson took a deep breath and plotted with receiver Marquise 'Hollywood' Brown.

They devised a plan - and executed it to perfection.

Jackson threw for 442 yards - a franchise record - and four touchdowns as the Ravens roared back to an astonishing 31-25 overtime win. It was their fourth straight, and Baltimore are 4-1 and sit atop the AFC North.

'It's one of the greatest performances I've ever seen,' Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.

BRILLIANT BUFFALO

Buffalo have the No 1 scoring offense – putting up more points (172, an average of 34.4 a game). The Bills also have the best scoring defense, allowing 64 points (12.8 a game).

Plus they have Josh Allen, a man determined to prove all of his early doubters wrong. Playing at a drenched Arrowhead, he threw for 315 yards on 26 attempts, with three touchdowns and no interceptions.

He also did this.

One of the secrets to the Bills’ success without the ball is their defensive rotation. After investing strongly in
