The New England Patriots signed off their pre-season campaign with a defeat at the hands of the New York Giants.

The Cincinnati Bengals edged out the Indianapolis Colts in a low-scoring affair at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Tom Obarksi kicked a late field goal to hand the Bengals the 9-6 victory after the clubs had cancelled each other out for the majority of the match despite previous kicks from Mike Nugent and Adam Vinatieri.

Matt Flynn threw two touchdown passes, while Daryl Richardson also recorded a score for the AFC East side to guide them to the win.

The Green Bay Packers came from 10 points down to defeat the New Orleans Saints 38-10 in their match at Lambeau Field.

Luke McCown threw an early score for the Saints, but rookie quarterback Brett Hundley threw four touchdown passes to guide the home side to the crushing victory.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers edged out the Miami Dolphins in their pre-season clash at SunLife Stadium.

Mike Glennon threw an early touchdown pass and Khaseem Greene returned an interception for a score to hand the NFC South side the win, despite two rushing scores from Mike Gillislee.

The Atlanta Falcons recorded a narrow one-point victory in their clash against the Baltimore Ravens, winning by a 20-19 scoreline.

Collin Mooney put the hosts ahead and a touchdown pass from Sean Renfree extended their advantage. John Harbaugh's men tried to come back in the fourth quarter, but two touchdown strikes from Byrn Renner were not enough for the home team.

The Detroit Lions staged a comeback win over the Buffalo Bills to record a 17-10 win in their pre-season clash.

The Bills took the lead when Ron Brooks returned an interception 80 yards for a touchdown, but the Lions fought back through a strike from Kellen Moore to TJ Jones and a run from Zach Zenner secured the victory.

The Carolina Panthers hammered the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-6 to finish 3-1 in their pre-season campaign.

Jordan Todman ran in for a 49-yard score, while Joe Webb found Marcus Lucas for a 23-yard touchdown in the second quarter, which was enough to secure the victory.

A late field goal from Jason Myers was enough to secure a 17-16 win for the Jacksonville Jaguars in their pre-season game against the Washington Redskins.

Rashad Ross's score was cancelled out by the Jaguars' Corey Grant, and the home side went ahead through Bryan Walters only for Mack Brown to tie the score with a run. However, Myers decided the contest with a kick from 47 yards in the fourth quarter.

The Tennessee Titans defeated the Minnesota Vikings 24-17 in their final pre-season match.

Titans quarterbacks Marcus Mariota, Zach Mettenberger and Alex Tanney all threw one touchdown each to guide their side to the win, despite a two-score display from Vikings signal-caller Taylor Heinicke.

The Kansas City Chiefs secured their fourth-successive win in pre-season with a 24-17 win over the St Louis Rams.

A score from Spencer Ware and touchdown strikes from Chase Daniel and Aaron Murray were enough to clinch the victory, despite a rushing score from Isaiah Pead and an interception return from Cody Davis.

The Dallas Cowboys edged out the Houston Texans 21-14 in their pre-season finale at AT & T Stadium.

Corey White returned an interception for a touchdown, while Gus Johnson and Ben Malena found the endzone in the ground game to hand the home side the win, despite two scores from Tom Savage.

The Chicago Bears put in a dominant display in their pre-season win over the Cleveland Browns with a 24-0 victory.

David Fales threw two touchdown passes to Marc Mariani and Ify Umodu, while Sherrod Martin returned an interception for a 25-yard touchdown to seal an emphatic win.

The Arizona Cardinals came from behind to defeat the Denver Broncos 22-20 in their pre-season finale.

Brock Osweiler threw a touchdown strike to put the Broncos ahead, but the Cardinals responded through scores from Logan Thomas, Phillip Sims and Kerwynn Williams to seal the win.

The San Francisco 49ers recorded a narrow win over the San Diego Chargers to sign off their pre-season with a success.

Dylan Thompson fired a 70-yard touchdown pass to Bruce Ellington and the hosts made the two-point conversion, but Richard Crawford responded with an interception return for a touchdown.

The conversion proved to be the difference between the sides as a second-half score from Rory Anderson was cancelled out by Tyrell Willliams, but the 49ers held out for the win.

The Seattle Seahawks ended their pre-season on a high note courtesy of a 31-21 victory over the Oakland Raiders.
