After a red hot start by the Atlanta Falcons in the first half and a bit of scuffling from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the second, the Bucs finished off Sunday’s matchup against Atlanta with a 30-17 win.
In an attempt to keep playoff hopes alive, the Miami Dolphins took down the New York Giants 20-9. New York, who is without Daniel Jones due to injury, looked flat at best, and the Tua Tagovailoa-led Miami offense looked much better than earlier in the season.
Trenton Cannon left San Francisco's game in Seattle after a collision on the game's opening kickoff. Coach Kyle Shanahan said Cannon would stay overnight at a hospital for observation but that he had been cleared from injuries aside from a concussion.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said his decision to go for 2 instead of settling for a game-tying point-after kick in Sunday's loss to the Steelers was impacted by Baltimore's injury situation. "We were pretty much out of corners at that point," he explained.
Buccaneers QB Tom Brady and TE Gronkowski hooked up for their 89th and 90th touchdowns in Sunday's win, moving them into second all-time for most regular-season touchdowns by a pair of players, behind only Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison.
Not every victory will be pretty. But the Chiefs still did what they needed to do for a significant division win over the Broncos on Sunday Night Football. Kansas City defeated Denver 22-9 behind a solid defensive performance. The Chiefs intercepted Teddy Bridgewater twice, with the quarterback finishing 22-of-40 for 257 yards and a touchdown. […]
Chiefs safety Daniel Sorensen has picked up his share of criticism over the last few seasons — particularly in 2021. But Sorensen made potentially a game-clinching play on Sunday, picking off a tipped Teddy Bridgewater pass and taking it 75 yards for a touchdown. The play came on fourth-and-2 with 9:56 left in the fourth […]
Raiders running back Kenyan Drake was carted off the field in the second quarter of Sunday’s loss to Washington and was ruled out with an ankle injury. Now Drake is apparently done for the rest of the year. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Drake suffered a broken ankle on the play and will miss […]
The Raiders broke a three-game losing streak against the Cowboys last week, but they were back on the wrong side of the scoreboard with Sunday’s 17-15 loss to Washington. Las Vegas finished with 310 total yards, but the club was only 2-of-8 on third down. And the team had just six points for three quarters, […]
It’s not often that a team gets a 20-play drive. But usually when there’s a possession that long, it ends in points. That was not the case for the Broncos in their Sunday matchup with the Chiefs. After converting a pair of fourth downs en route to advancing to Kansas City’s 8-yard line, the Broncos […]
Washington tight end Logan Thomas injured his knee with 9:47 remaining in the fourth quarter Sunday. The initial diagnosis is not good news. Thomas “likely” tore his anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Thomas will undergo further medical testing Monday to confirm. Raiders defensive end Yannick Ngakoue hit Thomas […]
Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey reportedly is believed to have a season-ending shoulder injury. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, that may indeed be the case, but it all hinges on an upcoming MRI. Per the source, Humphrey’s specific injury could be one of several different things. The Ravens won’t know what it is […]
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said after Sunday’s 20-19 loss to the Steelers that cornerback Marlon Humphrey could be out for a while after getting hurt during the game and it looks like that timeframe will cover the remainder of the season. Harbaugh did not specify the nature of Humphrey’s injury, but he could be […]
Ten days ago, a flagfest at AT&T Stadium between the Raiders and Cowboys resulted in four defensive pass interference calls against Dallas defensive back Anthony Brown, prompting Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to decry “throw up ball.” On Sunday, the Raiders tried to play “throw up ball” with the game on the line. This time, the […]
A report last week indicated Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger “privately has told former teammates and some within the organization that he expects this to be his final season” with the team. Roethlisberger was asked about the report after the Steelers’ 20-19 victory over the Ravens. “Well, I haven’t told everybody that,” Roethlisberger said, laughing along […]
The Chiefs are off to a great start in their Sunday matchup against the Broncos. After edge rusher Melvin Ingram helped force a three-and-out with a tackle for loss and a sack, Kansas City’s offense went 72 yards in 12 plays to gain a 7-0 advantage. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes had the scoring play with a […]
After Sunday’s loss to the Steelers, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said that the team went for two with seconds to play because they were running low on healthy cornerbacks and didn’t want to go to overtime in that condition. Harbaugh noted Marlon Humphrey in particular as being too hurt to get back on the […]
ESPN made some headlines this weekend with a report that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is going to retire, but the story didn’t make Steelers coach Mike Tomlin do anything other than laugh. Tomlin smirked when asked about the report after today’s game, saying that it just hasn’t been something they’re focused on in a locker […]
49ers running back Trenton Cannon left in an ambulance after a scary collision on the opening kickoff. 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game that Cannon will remain in the hospital overnight for observation after being diagnosed with a concussion.

The Ravens scored a touchdown with 12 seconds left in Sunday’s game against the Steelers and they only needed an extra point to send the game into overtime, but Ravens head coach John Harbaugh opted to go for two and try for the win in regulation. Tight end Mark Andrews got open, but Lamar Jackson‘s […]
There was only one way to describe Sunday’s game in Seattle: It was drunk. The teams combined for six turnovers, a safety, a missed extra point, five sacks, a fake punt for a 73-yard touchdown and a goal-line stand. In the end, the Seahawks did what they have done to the 49ers in recent history: […]
Kicker Brian Johnson got his chance to introduce himself to the Washington Football Team on Sunday and he did it with style. Johnson signed with the team this week because Joey Slye is set to miss multiple weeks with a hamstring injury and he wasn’t around long enough to meet defensive lineman Jonathan Allen before […]
A wild game in Pittsburgh came down to a single point, as the Ravens failed on a two-point conversion with 12 seconds left and the Steelers won 20-19. The two-point conversion pass from Lamar Jackson to tight end Mark Andrews sailed a bit too far, and Andrews got one hand on the ball but couldn’t […]
When a NFL game ends in a tie, the game continues with overtime. Overtime commences with a coin toss. The visiting team captain calls the toss. The winner of the toss can choose whether to receive the kick or to kick off, or the team winning the toss can choose which goal to defend. If […]
The Jets lost to the Eagles 33-18 on Sunday, but head coach Robert Saleh found something positive to take away from the game in rookie quarterback Zach Wilson‘s performance. Wilson led the Jets on three touchdown drives to open the game and finished the first half 12-of-14 for 108 yards and two touchdowns. He also […]
