Here is everything that happened around the National Football Conference yesterday.
Carolina Panthers at New York Giants +3
The Panthers came into this one in shambles. Major key injuries. But their defense still started out strong
Danny Dimes everybody
So it turned out the Giants offense getting stuffed at the goal line wasn't ALL bad. Three plays later, Sam Darnold got called for intentional grounding in his own end zone, resulting in a safety for Big Blue. New York then added a field goal on its ensuing possession to take the 5-3 (yes, 5-3) lead.
This one was all G-Men.
Washington Football Team at Green Bay Packers -7.5
These Packers uniforms.
Rodgers was busy being Rodgers all day
Davante Adams continues to make circus plays week after week
It also might help to attempt to cover the guy
Tough look for Taylor Heinicke in this one.
You just KNOW he had this one all planned out and visualized it all week.
Detroit Lions at Los Angeles Rams - 16.5
The Lions are acting like they're playing with house money at this point and I don't think anybody minds one bit.
This was also a revenge game for Detroit's punter, so glad he got in on the action.
But Matthew Stafford passed for 334 yards and three touchdowns against his former team and the Rams defeated the winless Detroit Lions.
Stafford to Kupp remains an unstoppable connection
Props to the Lions for refusing to lay down to anybody.
Philadelphia Eagles at Las Vegas Raiders -2.5
Philly takeover in Vegas. Was so sad I couldn't have witnessed this weekend.
Josh Jacobs wins best-dressed award.
Channeling his inner Troy Polamalu, Maxx Crosby leaped over the line of scrimmage to stuff Jalen Hurts on a second-and-goal from the one. That play proved especially significant because on the next play, the Raiders recovered the aborted snap to end an Eagles' rare red-zone opportunity.
Question: Was John Gruden holding Derek Carr back?
113.6 passer rating
Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers -11.5
Halloween came early for the Chicago Bears. What a disaster this game was.
Tom Brady threw four touchdown passes and the Bucs defense forced five turnovers en route to the Bucs' sixth win of the season that also represents the first 6-1 start in franchise history.
He also helped make this kids day
One thing was clear for the Bears in this one. There is not, has not been, and won't be a professional plan for Justin Fields as long as Matt Nagy is coach.
This poor kid.
This was impressive
Brady clocked TD #600 in this one, an absolutely absurd number.
This guy scored the ball when Mike Evans chucked it into the crowd.
The fun was far from over for Brady and Evans
The nightmare continued for Fields
People in the Bears org should have lost their jobs months ago, but definitely after this one. But, the McCaskey's…
And like clockwork, the Bears announced Matt Nagy has Covid this morning and won't be answering any questions for a few days.
Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers -4.5
There was some wild weather in this one. Some are claiming they were caught in a "bomb cyclone"
And it made a difference
BTW- how was that not a safety?
Jonathan Taylor is the truth. He had 18 carries for 107 yards (5.9 avg.) and 1 touchdown as well as 3 receptions (3 targets) for 3 yards (1.0 avg.) in this one. But, he also fumbled twice, losing one.
So is the Colts defense. They had 4 takeaways in this one.
If this team had anybody but Carson Wentz at the helm they'd be a serious threat.
Pretty Jimmy did his best to keep up
Weather update from the stands
Pittman went off in this one
Houston Texans at Arizona Cardinals -18
The Cardinals trailed, 5-0, to the Texans about 20 minutes into game action. From there, it was all Arizona, which easily scored 31 straight points while shutting down anything Houston tried to accomplish on offense.
Kyler Murray. I ran out of words 3 weeks ago.
Zach Ertz is going to put up insane numbers on this offense.
Is this team just full of past fantasy studs, still getting the job done?
This one was a laugher. Zona remains undefeated.
Tonight we've got the New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks +4.5 (42.5)
