Wild final!

The Bears appeared dead midway through the fourth quarter. The Seahawks lined up for a 39-yard field goal to go up 27-17, and with the way the Chicago offense played, a double-digit deficit seemed too big to overcome. But then Jason Myers missed the attempt, and after the Bears returned the ball on the downs, they forced a punt to get the ball back with 2:56 to go. Six plays and 80 yards later, Nick Foles hit Jimmy Graham with double cover on a third and 14 to put Chicago one more point to tie the game.

Only at 4-10 and the season already lost, the Bears wanted to settle the game in terms of regulation and on their terms. It was then that Damiere Byrd made one of the captures of the year, passing over two defenders and putting his knee in bounds – while retaining possession of the ball with ONE HAND – despite the Seahawks trying to carry him out of the end zone.

There hasn’t been much exciting for Bears fans this season, but this 25-24 triumph is something they will surely remember.

Dippin ‘and dunkin’

What a luxury it must be for Patrick Mahomes to complete a pass and watch his playmaker get to work. And I’m not talking about Tyreek Hill or Travis Kelce. This time it was Byron Pringle, who managed the catch at the nine-yard line, knocked down one defender, ducked under another, then passed two more on the other side of the goal line. . It was ALL the heads of Arrowhead.

Seattle responds!

The Seahawks wasted no time responding to Herbert’s overly easy touchdown run. It took four plays for Seattle to go 61 yards and climb back in double digits on the 24-yard string from Russell Wilson to Gerald Everett.

Herbie fully loaded

Rookie Khalil Herbert took over and exploded through the line of scrimmage as if he had been shot down from a cannon. No Seahawks defenseman could even put their finger on him as he crossed the left side and into the end zone for a 20-yard touchdown.

Drill tip!

The Broncos didn’t do much offensively in the first half, but they hold a 13-7 halftime lead over the Raiders. Denver can thank Bradley Chubb for that, as he bowed to Derek Carr’s pass and then scolded towards the Las Vegas 1-yard line. In the next game, Javonte Williams crossed the goal line for the green light score.

The chefs dominate!

Things couldn’t have been much worse for the Steelers in the first half. After a missed field goal – the first inside 40 yards from Chris Boswell in 44 tries – the Chiefs flew down the field and scored a third touchdown thanks to an impressive individual effort from Mecole Hardman.

Back to back beauties

In a Chiefs-dominated first half, Chase Claypool is doing his best to create momentum for the Steelers. Check out these contested catches in back-to-back games.

Carr (Ren) throws a TD

Regardless of the opponent or the situation, it always seems like Derek Carr and Hunter Renfrow are on the same page. They hung on for their sixth touchdown of the season on a good pitch but a better catch between a covered defender and the sideline.


It’s a snow game in Seattle, but the Seahawks weren’t afraid to broadcast it. Case in point: Russell Wilson’s famous moon ball that (eventually) fell straight into DK Metcalf’s hands for a touch as smooth as you’ll see.


That’s the yardage Joe Burrow threw in what was the game of his life against the Ravens. He was unstoppable as the Bengals lost another 41 points to the Ravens to regain the top spot in AFC North. Burrow’s 525 passing yards – which came on 37 of 46 passes and included four touchdowns – are the fourth single-game passing yards in NFL HISTORY. Incredible Burrow in the Bengals’ biggest game in a while.

The Texans’ Choice!

Two consecutive victories for the Texans? TWO WINS FROM THE TEXANS. The icing on the cake came in the final two minutes when Tavierre Thomas caught Justin Herbert’s errant pass and delivered it 49 yards for the score. Texans 41, Chargers 29.

Pro Bowl tackle Lane Johnson accomplished a lot in his 110 career debut on Sunday, but he had never made a take. And not only did Johnson bring one back against the Giants, it resulted in a touchdown! A fitting award for a player who has given so much to the Eagles’ organization over the past nine seasons.

INT game hunter

The Lions ALMOST had it, but Tim Boyle reminded us of the player who threw more than double the number of interceptions (26) as touchdowns (12) during his college career. On the first and goal of the nine-yard line, Boyle threw the ball straight to roving linebacker Foyesade Oluokun to seal the Falcons’ 20-16 victory.

Another great TD!

Conor McDermott watched fellow offensive lineman Will Richardson fall on a fumble for a touchdown, and he relieved it with a touchdown pass later in the game. It was not an easy problem either. The 6-foot-8, 310-pound McDermott had to climb before falling back into the end zone for a game he will never forget.

TD with drag

Seems like DeVonta Smith always finds a way to put himself within limits, doesn’t it? The No.10 overall pick made it again in the third quarter against the Giants for a four-yard touchdown that extended the Eagles’ lead.

The Dashing Lions were once again dashing, but the Falcons are holding them back – for now – with a perfectly placed pass from Matt Ryan to Hayden Hurst for the 12-yard touchdown.

Punt return TD

We’ve already had a touchdown return early on Braxton Berrios ‘roster, and now we have a punt return score thanks to the Rams’ Brandon Powell to give Los Angeles a 20-10 advantage. The Vikings’ punt unit may want to work on pursuit angles in practice next week.

Int x3

It sounds like a strip throw game for Matthew Stafford, whose inclined pass resulted in his third interception of the afternoon and led the Vikings to reduce the deficit to 13-10 early in the third quarter.

No Brandin Cooks, no problem for rookie Davis Mills. He has improved greatly since being propelled into the starting role earlier in the season, and that improvement was fully visible in the first half. Eleven completed passes on 13 attempts for Mills for 131 yards and that penny from a touchdown pass to Chris Conley.

Brady to Brate

If the Saints are Tom Brady’s kryptonite, the Panthers seem to be the antidote. The Bucs scored 19 points before halftime in Carolina, the last scoring being a four-yard touchdown pass from Brady to a WIDE OPEN Cameron Brate.

The bettor throws a penny

Dan Campbell has nothing to lose, which is why after a false start in fourth and 1, he knocked out the punt team – then FAKE THE PUNT. Jack Fox took the snap, put his feet down and threw a 21-yard strike to move the chains. The Lions capitalized on a touchdown on a 20-yard pass from Tim Boyle to Amon-Ra St. Brown.

TD return kick

Perhaps the most entertaining game of an early stacked slate is … Jaguars-Jets? Listen to me. It’s midway through the second quarter, and there’s already been an electric Zach Wilson touchdown, a fumble recovered in the end zone for a touchdown and now a 101-yard kickoff return (untouched! ) of Braxton Berrios to give the Jets back the lead.

O-lineman TD!

No, Will Richardson didn’t catch a touchdown pass, but the fourth-year offensive tackle made a captivating play nonetheless. After taking off from the ground after doing a block, he saw the ball slip away from Trevor Lawrence and dove over a Jets defenseman to perform the recovery in the end zone.

Ke’Shawn Vaughn?

Pushed into a complementary role with Leonard Fournette on the injured reserve, second-year RB Ke’Shawn Vaughn took his first hand against the Panthers and went into runs, meandering and weaving for a 55-yard touchdown. It was only his 12th postponement of the season.

Zach Wilson looked like he was on the verge of breaking out of bounds at the Jaguars’ 35-yard line, which froze a defenseman. He then tiptoed over the straight sideline and made another silly defenseman look before crossing the goal line for 52 yards. In what has been a tough rookie campaign for the No.2 overall pick, this has certainly been one of his biggest strengths.

Texans strike first

The Chargers have the fourth-worst rushing defense in the NFL, allowing for 136.8 yards per game. The Texans racked up 44 in their first practice Sunday, with Rex Burkhead gobbling up 37 of those yards and putting Houston in the lead with a score of 25 yards.

4th TD down!

The Bills scored a touchdown in their 14-10 loss to the Patriots in Week 13. They scored their first game with less than 10 minutes of play on Sunday, as Josh Allen found Isaiah McKenzie on a fourth and 2 goals to take the lead. in a monumental AFC East showdown.
