NFL Week 17 highlights: Saints-Eagles, Dolphins-Patriots, more

Week 17 of NFL The season continues Sunday with a jam-packed slate — and we’ve got you covered from start to finish!

The playoff picture will come into sharper focus in the penultimate week of the regular season as several teams try to finally punch their way to the postseason.

Here are the top games from Sunday!

New Orleans Saints at Philadelphia Eagles

Taysom time

The Eagles knew it was coming. They also couldn’t do anything about it. Saints Swiss Army knife Taysom Hill took the snap out of the shotgun before scampering into the end zone for the game’s opening score.

Cleveland Browns at Washington Governors

Pick out the trash

Offense has been hard to come by between the Browns and Commanders as quarterbacks Deshaun Watson and Carson Wentz continue to struggle. Cleveland safety Grant Delpitt doesn’t help the cause, intercepting Wentz’s fumble for his team’s second touchdown.

The Browns take the lead

Washington put together a 21-play touchdown drive — yes, a 21-play touchdown drive — in the second quarter. Cleveland regained the lead, however, on its first possession of the second half.

Watson hit wide receiver Amari Cooper to move the chains. The wideout then broke out of a tackle and raced into the end zone for a 46-yard score.

Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

A new day for Darnold?

Sam Darnold has looked like a different quarterback in the class this season. That continued in the first quarter Sunday, as he connected with Tommy Tremble for a 17-yard TD.

What a throw!

Darnold hit wide receiver DJ Moore for a 24-yard touchdown, giving the Panthers a 14-0 lead midway through the second quarter.

Back to it

Down by two scores, quarterback Tom Brady connected with wide receiver Mike Evans for a 63-yard touchdown, pulling Tampa Bay to within one.

Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions

Quick movements

The bears and lions are locked in a back and forth affair. D’Andre Swift is the last to hit, who runs for a 17-yard run to give Detroit a 14-10 lead in the second quarter.

Lions traffic violation

Later in the second quarter, Lions quarterback Jared Goff and tight end Brock Wright connected on a 9-yard touchdown, their second scoring connection of the game. Detroit led 21-10.

Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Falcons

Here comes McBride

Rookie Trey McBride has emerged as a pleasant surprise in recent weeks for the Cardinals. On Sunday, he scored his first career TD.

Birds on the ground

Tyler Allgeier punched in Atlanta’s first touchdown and Cordarrelle Patterson punched in the second on the ground in the final minutes of the first half.

Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots

Bubble up!

Tyreek Hill making that pass back for a touchdown was impressive. But his celebration was even more.

Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs

Mahomes hits…Mahomes

Isiah Pacheco got the Chiefs on the board with a short TD run. But the big early highlight came thanks to Patrick Mahomes (with an assist from the Broncos defense). The presumptive MVP accidentally completed a pass to himself and, sure enough, turned it into a 6-yard gain.

Rush runs it in

Wilson took off for a 16-yard score, the Broncos’ first touchdown of the game.


Kansas City took back the lead on the ensuing possession when Mahomes hit running back Jerick McKinnon for a 6-yard score.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans

Jaguar speed

As soon as Travis Etienne entered the second level, he was gone. His 62-yard TD run helped Jacksonville build a quick 14-0 lead.


Texans quarterback Davis Mills had the ball loose and Jaguars cornerback Tyson Campbell scooped up and ran the loose ball into the end zone. Jacksonville led 21-0.

Indianapolis Colts at New York Giants

Dimes and dashes

Daniel Jones has already thrown a pair of TD passes. But his best play was that 13-yard run. He seemed to be going for more, but overstepped the mark. Either way, it set up New York’s second score.


After Jones hit wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins for New York’s second touchdown, safety Landon Collins intercepted Colts quarterback Nick Foles’ pass and ran it back for a touchdown.

He runs away

Jones ran in an 18-yard touchdown early in the third quarter, giving the Giants a 31–3 lead.
