Mahomes goes full Mahomes to achieve victory
Patrick Mahomes was out in 2021, leading the NFL with 10 interceptions thrown at the start of Week 9. He wasn’t much better against the Packers as he only completed 20 of his 37 passes for 166 yards and a hit for a score of 74.8. But on the third and 10 with the game in play, Mahomes gathered the magic we’re so used to seeing from him, sprinting to the right and throwing a laser at the last second at Tyreek Hill for a first try. It wasn’t pretty, but the Chiefs got their second straight win.
Love launches first career TD
Just as all hope seems lost for the Packers, Jordan Love found Allen Lazard on the left sideline. Lazard did the rest, dodging under a Chiefs defenseman and entering high into the end zone for the 20-yard touchdown.
Snead’s INT ends promising training
It was a rough start for Jordan Love, but he led the Packers on a 14-game, 68-yard run to the edge of the red zone midway through the fourth quarter. Down 13-0, a touchdown would put pressure on the Chiefs to wrap up the win. But on the third and 10, Love threw the ball to Davante Adams, only L’Jarius Sneed recovered the ball for interception.
FG winner of the game!
Newly signed kicker Dustin Hopkins continues to reward the Chargers for getting him back in late October. In two games with Los Angeles, Hopkins scored four of his five extra points and three field goals, including one from 29 yards to beat the Eagles at the end of the time limit.
Another turnover of the 49ers
The 49ers offense was able to move the ball, but trailed by two touchdowns early in the first quarter. It’s simply because the San Francisco players can’t keep the ball. First George Kittle groped inside Arizona territory, then Brandon Aiyuk did the same after making a tough catch on the field.
Trickeration sets up TD Cards
Playing without Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins allowed the Cardinals to get creative and their innovation worked flawlessly at the end of the first quarter. Substitute Colt McCoy rigged the transfer, gave a false push, then returned the ball to Christian Kirk running to the right. He then started to slow down and handed the ball to Rondale Moore in the front right corner of the end zone. Moore didn’t score, but James Conner did so in the next game to give the Cardinals a two touchdown lead.
Jags stuns Bills!
The Bills finished as 15.5 point favorites at Paris Sportsbook, yet the teams combined to score just 15 points in a lousy game in Jacksonville. The Jaguars won 9-6. That’s because the Bills ‘Josh Allen struggled powerfully (three turnovers, four sacks taken), while the Jaguars’ Josh Allen dominated (sack, interception, fumble recovery). And in the end, Jacksonville’s defense was too much for Buffalo (yes, I know how it sounds), carrying Urban Meyer’s side to their second win of the season.
FG winner of the game!
In classic Falcons fashion, they kind of gave up a 24-6 lead with less than 11 minutes to go. But like the other Falcons, they rolled onto the field in the last minute and won the game over Younghoe Koo’s 29-yard basket at the end of the time limit.
Strip bag for the game!
The Giants are in the winning column for the third time this season after Quincy Roche stripped Derek Carr in the dying moments of the game and Leonard Williams recovered. The Raiders fall to 5-3.
Josh Allen recovers Josh Allen’s fumble!
You just can’t make it up. Jaguars rusher Josh Allen now has a sack, interception and fumble recovery against… guess who? Josh Allen. The Bills quarterback was sloppy all afternoon, allowing Jacksonville to hold onto the lead in the dying minutes of the game.
McKinney eliminates Carr again
Derek Carr probably should have stopped starting directing Xavier McKinney, because when he did, bad things happened. McKinney knocked out Carr for the second time at the end of the fourth quarter on Sunday to preserve the Giants’ four-point lead.
One-handed TD grip
Despite deficits of 17-3 and 24-10, the Ravens fought to tie the Vikings with about 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter. Devin Duvernay scored the equalizer, returning the ball to himself at the back of the end zone for the touchdown.
Josh Allen intercepts Josh Allen!
One Josh Allen was supposed to dominate Sunday’s game between the Bills and Jaguars, and he wasn’t the third-year rusher. Still, Jacksonville’s Josh Allen turned the game around with seven solo tackles (two loss), one pass, one sack and, most recently, a massive interception to put the Jaguars on the Buffalo 30-yard line.
The Patriots D are coming big
The Patriots high school fueled New England’s victory over the Chargers last week, and it was once again important in Carolina. The unit intercepted Sam Darnold three times, the second coming from JC Jackson, whose 88-yard touchdown return put the Patriots in double digits.
McKinney at home
The Raiders are officially on high alert after Xavier McKinney jumped right in front of Hunter Renfrow to intercept the pass and sail the other way for a score of 41 yards. The giants advance 17-13.
Allen fires Allen!
For the first time in NFL history, a player sacked another player with the same first and last name. In the dying moments of the first half, Bills quarterback Josh Allen was looking to put Buffalo within shooting range. Jaguars rusher Josh Allen had different ideas, however, dragging his counterpart down to a 10-yard loss. To make matters more interesting, both players were selected seventh in consecutive NFL Draft.
INT revenge game!
Two games with the Panthers, two interceptions for 2019 NFL Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore. His last game came against his former team, the New England Patriots, as he cut the slanting road to put Carolina into enemy territory.
The Patriots have 126 total yards. by a quarter and a half against the Panthers. Fourth-round rookie Rhamondre Stevenson has 74 on just five touches, including a 41-yard reception and 13-yard scamper. On the next play, Damien Harris crossed the line for a three-yard score.
Mike Gesicki twist, one hand grip
No one would have faulted Gesicki for not pulling off Jacoby Brissett’s errant pass, but the tight end made the backup quarterback look really good with that twisted one-handed snag with a defender on the back.
Teddy Covers extends Denver’s lead
Teddy Bridgewater is 20-2 in his career as an underdog on the road, and he’s on his way to his 21st early cover against the Broncos. His perfect pass to Tim Patrick on the left side resulted in a 44-yard touchdown and gave the Broncos a 13-0 advantage.
Direct hook score
Myles Gaskin channeled his inside Ronnie Brown, taking the direct shot, pacing the line of scrimmage, finding a role on the right side and squeezing into the end zone from six yards. The Dolphins have the lead at the start of a battle between 1-7 teams.
Jefferson takes the defense
After an uninspiring prime-time performance against the Cowboys, the Vikings seemed to have regained their offensive skills early on against the Ravens. It helps to have All-Pro Justin Jefferson, who flew behind the defense, caught Kirk Cousins’ pass in stride and streaked into the end zone.
99-yard INT return TD
It looked like the Bengals were going to strike first in a crucial AFC North battle, but on third and goal of 3, Joe Burrow choreographed his pass to Ja’Marr Chase and Denzel Ward took advantage, jumping the road and taking all. the way home from a 99-yard touchdown to open the scoring.
Danny Dimes strikes first
Evan Engram had a touchdown all last season. He’s now two in as many weeks, as he jumped over a defenseman to catch a 30-yard touchdown from Daniel Jones.
The betting market does not consider the absence of Tua to be significant
When future Packers Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers landed on the COVID-19 roster earlier this week, the points spread shifted to a touchdown in the direction of the Chiefs for the ordeal Week 9 strength. The week before, when wide receiver Davante Adams missed the Cardinals game with COVID, the line shifted to a field goal in Arizona’s favor.
Tua Tagovailoa obviously isn’t Rodgers or Adams, but he who didn’t start the Texans game with a fractured finger had to move the gap point by a decent amount, right? Apparently not.
On Sunday morning, 1-7 Miami was among the favorites at 5.5 points against 1-7 Houston. But since news of the second-year caller propelling veteran Jacoby Brissett into the starting role, the line has moved to the -4 Dolphins. And given that the points gap hasn’t crossed a key number (seven, six, four, three, etc.), players don’t think Tagovailoa’s absence should have much of an impact on the result. global.
