Here is everything that happened this weekend in the American Football Conference
Los Angeles Chargers at Houston Texans +10.5
Look at this spread.
The Moneyline was +500
Nobody told the Texans that.
Rex Burkhead ran for a career-high 149 yards and two touchdowns
Rookie Davis Mills had two passing TDs
Herbert turnovers killed this Chargers team in this game
Herbert threw for 336 yards with a garbage-time touchdown and two interceptions. Justin Jackson ran for 64 yards and two touchdowns and had 98 yards receiving filling in for Ekeler, but his fourth-quarter fumble led to a Houston field goal that hurt LA's comeback bid.
The Texans beat the Chargers despite having 18 players on the COVID list, including 8 starters on defense, top WR Brandin Cooks and 3 starters on the offensive line.
Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals -7
Holy shit remember this guy?
The Ravens are so depleted they're throwing anybody in a jersey.
Joe Burrow let the world know they were in for a treat right from the first drive
Tee Higgins had a fuckin day
Higgins had 12 receptions for a career-high 194 yards.
But Joe Burrow was out to set records
The Bengals were still calling deep route plays late in this game up 20 because it was a team mission for Burrow to rack up those yards.
Burrow's 500-yard passing day was the 24th in the NFL and the first this season, and he became the 20th QB to reach the half-century mark. Only Norm Van Brocklin (554 yards), Warren Moon (527) and Matt Schaub (527) have thrown for more.
How can you not love this kid?
Jacksonville Jaguars at New York Jets +1.5
The Jets had 20 players on the COVID-19 list and played without coach Robert Saleh because he didn't clear protocols after testing positive earlier in the week.
Every other game or so Zach Wilson pulls something like this out of his ass and surprises even his biggest critics
Wilson set a Jets record for a quarterback with 91 yards rushing, highlighted by a 52-yard score — the longest run by a QB in franchise history. It's also the third-longest TD run by a rookie quarterback in NFL history.
Lawrence was 26 of 39 for 280 yards for the Jaguars, who lost top running back James Robinson to a torn Achilles tendon early in the game.
This one was close until New York's defense used a goal-line stand at the end of the game to hold on and beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 26-21
Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots -1
I like this Stefon Diggs fella
Mac Jones hooked his linemen up Bitcoin for Christmas
The Bills came out flying in this one. Looked like a completely different team than the one that faced New England a few weeks ago.
New England stuck to the gameplan from that last game though and pounded the ball down Buffalo's throats
The game really came down to this 4th and 1 for the Bills. And Josh Allen came through huge
Josh Allen finished 30 of 47 for 314 passing yards and 64 rushing yards on 12 tries and threw for three touchdowns.
Isaiah McKenzie had a career-high 11 catches
and Micah Hyde had two interceptions
Denver Broncos at Las Vegas Raiders +1
Josh Jacobs had a costly fumble early in this one, resulting in Peyton Barber getting the rock
With the Raiders trailing by six points at halftime Sunday, Josh Jacobs told the coaches to give him a chance to get into a rhythm, to make up for a lost fumble, and to put their trust in his running abilities.
Which they did
Jacobs ran for 57 yards on seven attempts on the Raiders' opening drive of the second half, which went for 75 yards over nine plays. It ended with Peyton Barber's 5-yard TD run that gave Las Vegas the lead for good
The Raiders held Broncos offense to 158 total yards of offense, 18 yards on the ground…
Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs -10
Patrick Mahomes was lights out in this one throwing for 258 yards and three touchdowns
Holy shit was that Christian Okoye?
Despite the horrific performance by Pittsburgh's offense, Claypool can ball
The Steelers (7-7-1) continue to fall apart down the stretch. They became the first team in NFL history to trail by at least 23 points at halftime in three straight road games. They have failed to score a touchdown in the first half of five straight games for the first time since 1940.
