One-handed game tying TD!

With one last chance in fourth and tenth, Jacoby Brissett saw David Njoku and a chunk of space in the middle back of the endzone. So he fired it there, and somehow Njoku snatched the ball out of the air with one hand for the acrobatic touchdown catch. A successful point after that ensured the Browns and Bucs would go into overtime.

end zone INT

The commanders just keep winning with Taylor Heinicke in the middle. But as in their hot phase, the defense was strong again on Sunday. As the Falcons threatened to take the lead in the last minute, stud defensive tackle Daron Payne flipped Marcus Mariota’s pass in the air and cornerback Kendall Fuller fell with a diving interception in the end zone.

TeeD

When Joe Burrow needs to make a game, he usually goes to his college teammate Ja’Marr Chase. Well, Chase is out with a hip injury, so Burrow reached out to colleague Tee Higgins. And in a tie early in the fourth quarter, Higgins kicked things off.

Rumblin’, hobble’, stumble’

Despite being blown out, the Texans are still fighting. That includes Jordan Akins, who, after fumbling early in the game, made an impressive individual effort to make the catch around the 20-yard line and then refused to go down until he crossed the goal line for the gate crossed.

Rookie WR rises

The Titans desperately need a playmaking wide receiver. Enter first-round rookie Treylon Burks, who has been making his presence felt since returning from week 10 of injury. Burks had his first 100-yard reception game against the Packers last week, and he has a chance to break the century mark once again thanks to that incredible 51-yard grab that set up the game-winning field goal.

Jets take off

The Bears took an early 10-7 lead, but have been ALL the Jets since. Quarterback Mike White (302 yards, three touchdowns) was the star, but running back Ty Johnson recently got on the scoresheet with a 32-yard scamper for six.

Heinick TD

It’s Taylor Heinicke’s team for now, and he continues to make games for a Commanders roster looking to cement his standing in NFC wildcard racing. Late in the third quarter, Heinicke put Washington back in front with a 16-yard smash into John Bates.

MIKE WHITE

Mike White is playing for former top draft pick Zach Wilson in his first game. He has just five incompletions compared to three touchdown passes, the last of which was a hit to Elijah Moore for the 22-yard score. The Jets are in control against the Bears in the rain.

Unique shovel and score

Sam Darnold Pledges To Be Panthers Quarterback For Rest Of Season He’s been decent so far (9-for-15, 104 yards, 1 TD) and has had a lot of luck too. Darnold was stripped at the goal line, but instead of the Broncos recovering for a turnover, Darnold jumped on it and rolled into the end zone without being touched. The rare scoop and the score put Carolina two touchdowns up.

Get to the end zone hastily

With it doubtful if Travis Etienne will return with a foot injury, the Ravens will get a fair amount of JaMycal Hasty for the remainder of the game. So you should cover the 5-foot-8 running back running free down the sideline to get the 28-yard score. It was a beautiful throw from Trevor Lawrence, who passed the ball between the corner and safety and right into the hands of the striding Hasty for six.

Shovel and score!

It’s a blowout in Miami as the Dolphins remind the rest of the AFC that they are a force to be reckoned with. The most recent highlight game was a scoop and a goal by Xavien Howard, who took advantage of Jordan Akins’ fumble and ran into the end zone with his teammates from 16 yards.

The Dolphins went into halftime with an historic 30-0 lead, which is the second-largest first-half lead in 30 seasons. per NFL Research.

Garret Wilson x2

Jets rookie wideout Garrett Wilson is a particular talent. Watch as he sticks his foot in the ground to miss a defender and then passes the rest of the Bear defense for a long touchdown – his second of the first half.

Henry did almost all of the work on the Titans’ first touchdown of the afternoon, but Tennessee wouldn’t have scored without Treylon Burks. It was heads-up play from the rookie wide receiver, who redeemed Henry’s fumble in the end zone after a 69-yard screen pass.

OOPS

Rain is definitely a factor in the Jets Bears game. Just look at what happened in New York’s landmark field goal attempt.

Kyle Allen is starting in place of the struggling Davis Mills and has a chance to take over the Texans’ No. 1 quarterback job for the remainder of 2022. But he’ll be back on the bench pretty soon if he keeps shooting like he did in the second quarter on Sunday. Allen drifted into the pocket and fully airmailed his short pass, which landed squarely in the hands of Andrew Van Ginkel for interception. A big return set the Dolphins up with first-and-goal, and Jeff Wilson did the rest with three yards to extend the lead to 17.

REVIEW

Everyone loves a well-executed throwback pass. Fake the surrender, roll onto your side and, at the last moment, twist your hips and throw across the field. The commanders fell for it completely, leaving MyCole Pruitt wide open for the starting gun.

Yes, you read it right. Two drives, 142 yards and 10 points for the Siemian-led Bears, who took the lead with a four-yard touchdown on Byron Pringle.

AT LAST

One of the craziest streaks in the NFL this year has come to an end. The Panthers started Sunday with exactly zero points in the first quarter in 11 games, but that changed against the Broncos, thanks in part to Sam Darnold, who made his debut in 2022. Darnold led Carolina on an 11-play 71-yard drive that ended with the ball in DJ Moore’s hands for the 5-yard touchdown — her first in the first 15 minutes of the season.

Can’t be denied!

When Brian Robinson Jr. caught the pass at the Falcons 14, he had to hit a man on his way to the end zone. The Commanders rookie chose the shortest route – through the defender – as he rolled over cornerback Darren Hall and then carried another Falcon over the goal line.

Zach Wilson out, Mike White in — and the backup starter couldn’t have asked for a better start on Sunday. White completed six of his first seven passes on the opening rush for 69 yards and that short touchdown pass to Garrett Wilson.

Browns bat first (again)

If the NFL was a sudden death, where the first touchdown wins, the Browns would be near the top of the AFC. Cleveland has now scored a third straight touchdown with opening drive, this time after an end around speedster Anthony Schwartz, who needed 31 yards for the score.

Receive. Out of. Me.

Is that Derrick Henry in a Bengals uniform? No, but Samaje Perine really looked like ‘Tractorcito’ when he gave standout linebacker David Long Jr. a nasty stiff arm. Standing in for Joe Mixon (concussion), Perine set the tone for the opening drive.

Rookie RBs keep going up

If you watched the NFL’s very first Germany game a few weeks ago, you know Rachaad White. The Buccaneers rookie running back made his first career start, carrying the ball 22 times for 105 yards, some of which came on the final offensive drive, to seal a Tampa Bay victory.

Arizona State’s third-round selection should also get a lot of work on Sunday. Leonard Fournette, who served as RB1 all season apart from the previous game, suffered a hip injury in Germany and was ruled out for Week 12 against the Browns. The Buccaneers activated pass-recovery Giovani Bernard from injured reserve on Saturday, but expect plenty of volume (and subsequent success) from White against Cleveland’s 24th-ranked running defense (135.1 yards per game allowed).

White is the latest rookie to show he’s capable of carrying an offense on the floor. Let’s go through the playmakers.

  • The Jets’ Breece Hall (Round 2, 36th pick) was on track to be named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year before suffering a season-ending cruciate ligament and meniscus tear.
  • The Seahawks’ Kenneth Walker III (Round 2, 41st pick) is now the favorite for the award after losing a tear since taking on the injured Rashaad Penny in Week 6.
  • The Commanders’ Brian Robinson Jr. (Round 3, 98th pick), despite being shot twice in preseason, has started five of the seven games he has played since returning from injury. He averages more than 15 carries per game.
  • Texan Dameon Pierce (Round 4, 107th pick) was the only rookie to start the year as his team’s clear starter, and he was the only bright spot in Houston with 780 rushing yards (leads all rookies) and four total touchdowns.
  • The Chiefs’ Isiah Pacheco (Round 7, 251st pick) appears to be the steal of the draft in this position. Since being named a starter in Week 7, he has averaged nearly 5.4 yards per carry. The results have been even better over the past two weeks: 31 carries and 189 yards (6.1 yards per carry).

These youngsters have been integral to their team’s success and that doesn’t even include the Falcons’ Tyler Allgeier, Bills’ James Cook and the Rams’ Kyren Williams – all poised to play a bigger role in the final stretch of the 2022 campaign The running back position is certainly in good hands.
