First place Falcons!

Eddie Pinheiro could learn a thing or two from Yungoe Ku, who, unlike Pinheiro, scored his game-winning goal in overtime on Sunday. With Koo’s 41-yard field goal going through the uprights, the Falcons (4-4) now hold first place in the NFC South. Who would have thought that?

Eddy Pineir NO

Pineiro should definitely be in danger of losing his starting job for the Panthers. CJ Henderson gave Pineiro a golden opportunity for redemption with his interception and long return in Falcons territory. It turned out not to matter, as Pinheiro followed up the missed extra point with a game-winning 32-yarder down the left sideline.

Moore gives and Moore takes away

Oh no, DJ Moore! The Panthers’ No. 1 receiver made his biggest play of the year by diving down for a 62-yard touchdown with just 12 seconds left. But then he ripped off his helmet, drawing a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and forcing the Panthers into a 48-yard extra point. And, of course, the penalty proved costly as Eddie Pinheiro’s effort went wide. We’re going to OT.

Foreman also scores three times

Make that FOUR players with three touchdowns after D’Onta Foreman finds the end zone three times as the Panthers’ No. 1 running back. Foreman showed off his speed, agility and balance in his final trip across the finish line.

Tony Pollard = RB1

He’s just better than Ezekiel Elliott. It is so simple. Pollard is averaging 9.4 yards per carry against the Bears and has scored three touchdowns. His last was the most impressive, as the Cowboys running back broke several tackles behind the line of scrimmage before breaking through the open lane and going in for the score.

Moore sneaks away

How Rondale Moore slipped up for a touchdown, I have no idea. Just incredibly bad tackling by the Vikings, who allowed Moore to turn a nice gain into a big touchdown.

McCourty picks up Wilson again

Devin McCourty, 35, has seen it all in his 13-year NFL career and is teaching Zach Wilson a thing or two about not throwing the ball the wrong way. He picked off Wilson twice as the Patriots have control over their AFC East rival.

If he continues to play like he has, Parsons will be the runaway Defensive Player of the Year. And this game encapsulates the type of player he is. The tenacity to get back into the game, the composure to jump into the fray, the awareness to realize no one had touched him, and the burst and quickness to weave through a helpless Bears offense on his way to a 36 scoop and score.

Good grab

It looked like there was no way Justin Jefferson was going to come down with that pass to the left side. But that’s what Jefferson does: He makes works that no one else can. Add that 29-yard hurdle to the list.

it hurts HUMMIN’

MVP candidate Jalen Hurts is certainly playing Sunday like he deserves the award. Make that four touchdowns for the third-year dual threat, with the most recent going to Zach Pascal for a 34-yard score. All four of Hurts’ touchdowns were 27 yards or more.

Arch (AGAIN)

Move over AJ Brown, because you’ve got some company in the three-arrival club. Kamara caught the quick pass and took off, extending the Saints’ lead to 24 with his 36-yard strike.

Angry run

Rhamondre Stevenson looked like he would be tackled for no gain. Then he came out of the scrum, split two defenders, stiffed another and broke outside for a 35-yard pickup. A few plays later, the Patriots took the lead on a touchdown pass from Mac Jones to Jakobi Meyers from five yards out.

TD with one hand

Even at 30, DeAndre Hopkins is still one of the best wide receivers in the game. And in case you forgot while Hopkins was serving his six-game PED suspension, he reminded you of it with that smooth one-handed catch for the six-yard score.

Choice-six!

PJ Walker earned that start after a valiant effort in the Panthers’ win over the Buccaneers last week, but the former XFL star could be a miracle for Carolina in 2022. He completed just six of his 15 passes in the first halftime and threw that brutal interception on a screen pass. All Lorenzo Carter had to do after giving himself the ball was avoid Walker en route to the 28-yard touchdown.

THREE FIRST HALF TDS

AJ Brown is unstoppable! Five receptions. 113 yards. THREE TOTCHDOWNS. All in the first 25 minutes of the match.

Kamara finds the end zone (twice)

The Saints came to play against the Raiders on Sunday and Alvin Kamara got it going on the ground and through the air. He already has two touchdowns as the Raiders look lost in New Orleans.

Steel scam!

Matt Canada has been one of the most vanilla running backs in the NFL this season, but he put together a spot-on trick play against the Eagles. Chase Claypool picked up the jet, but instead of heading for the front left pylon, he sent a left-handed pass to running back Derek Watt for the one-yard score.

Ankle sprain

Ezekiel Elliott should be very, and I mean VERY, worried about his starting job. Tony Pollard, who has been the most effective runner in years, shoulders the load on Sunday with Elliott out through injury, and Pollard was superb in the first half. His 18-yard touchdown was one of the few runs where he made Bears defenders look silly.

AJ Brown x2

Jalen Hurts and AJ Brown feel themselves in the first half against the Steelers. For the second time already, the duo linked up for a big score, this time with Hurts taking a perfect shot that landed gracefully in the arms of Brown with a defender in tight cover.

The Lions are a different offense with D’Andre Swift on the field, and it showed early against the Dolphins. Swift, who has missed the last three games with a shoulder injury, has already found the end zone, catching a pass on a dart route and bursting across the goal line from seven yards out.

Dak dealing

The Bears had by far their best performance of the season on “Monday Night Football” against the Patriots. It’s been a lot tougher this week, as Prescott is already 10-for-11 passing for 108 yards, a rushing touchdown and that score to CeeDee Lamb.

Wilson –> Wilson

That’s the connection Jets fans hope to see a lot more of in the coming years. Going right, former No. 2 overall pick Zach Wilson uncorked a beautiful pass that cut through the air and landed right in the hands of former No. 10 overall pick Garrett Wilson for a huge gain.

Hurts airs it out

If anyone thought the Eagles would come out of their bye week rusty, they couldn’t be more wrong. After forcing a three-and-out to start the game, Philadelphia almost immediately got on the scoreboard with Jalen Hurts connecting with AJ Brown for a 39-yard score. Brown wanted it more, jumping between two Steelers defenders to catch the ball for the touchdown.

Cousins ​​with the WHEELS

Kirk Cousins ​​… runs for a touchdown … from 17 yards out?! On a play that started with Cousins ​​running for his life to avoid a sack, he appeared on the field and saw nothing but green grass in front of him. And with the end zone just around the corner, Cousins ​​dove for the goal line to put Minnesota ahead.

Duck runs it in

The Cowboys looked SHARP on their first drive against the Bears. They drove 75 yards in 11 plays and opened the scoring, thanks to Dak Prescott’s seven-yard zone keeper. Prescott also completed four of his five passes for 39 yards on the possession.

Direct INT

Marcus Mariota’s 29th birthday isn’t off to a good start. On just his second pass of the game, he took it to Damiere Byrd deep up the middle of the field. The only problem was that Donde Jackson was running the route with Byrd and it was Jackson who made the interception to give the Panthers the possession.

Prove it or lose it

It’s been a chaotic, unpredictable first seven weeks across the NFL. I mean the Giants are 6-1 while the Rams, 49ers, Buccaneers and Packers are either .500 or worse. And now that we’re almost halfway through the season, preseason expectations mean less and less. At this point, the teams are more likely what they are than what we thought they would be going into the year.

I’m a nice guy though, so I’ll give these groups another shot. Welcome to “proof” week.

Can the Rams break their regular season nightmare streak against the 49ers? Or will the Super Bowl champions and their anemic offense fall to 3-4?

Can the Patriots bounce back from Monday night’s ugly loss to beat a Jets team that has beaten 12 straight? Or will New England put on a horror show for their fans for the second week in a row?

And finally, can the lifeless Packers come back from the dead to upset the Super Bowl favorite Bills? Or has the magic of back-to-back MVP Aaron Rodgers and Matt LaFleur run its course?

In the midst of five losses in their last six games, the Buccaneers (3-5) are staring at a scary proposition: missing the playoffs. Will their NFC Super Bowl teammate endure the same fate?
