Taysom goes DEEP

When Taysom Hill lines up at quarterback, he usually tries to run over any defender in his path. But on the rare occasion, he falls backwards and swings, which is exactly what he did midway through the Sunday of the first quarter. Hill delivered a laser down the middle to impressive undrafted rookie Rashid Shaheed, who caught the ball with long strides over the outstretched arms of a defensive back and went to the races for a 68-yard score.

Zeke = TD machine

Before his injury, after his injury — it doesn’t matter. Whenever Ezekiel Elliott has seen the field in the past two months, he has found the end zone. On Sunday against the Jaguars, his 10-yard cracker marked his seventh straight game with a score.

Get off me!

Safety Jeremy Chinn had a chance to stop Najee Harris on the first goal from the seven-yard line. Instead, Harris armed him with stiff arms and then went after another defender as he crossed the goal line to open the game’s scoring.

Point return TD!

The Jets appeared to snatch the Lions’ momentum when they filled touchdown machine Jamaal Williams at the fourth down goal line, but Detroit immediately won it back on a three-and-out. That forced New York to punt from its own end zone, and Kalif Raymond took full advantage, causing the first man to miss and then explode through a small crease and his teammates make major blocks en route to the 47-yard punt return score.

The Ravens-Browns matchup didn’t offer much action in the first half, but Justin Tucker did set the Ravens franchise record for most career field goals scored with 355. With just over five minutes left in the second quarter, Tucker settled on a 53-yard field goal to tie the game at three apiece and set the Ravens record.

Tucker is the best kicker in the NFL and holds the record for the longest field goal in NFL history. You probably remember from last year – a 66-yard, game-winning kick to take down the Lions.

The Vikings are making the biggest comeback in NFL history

If you chose to turn off the TV during Colts-Vikings halftime, you really missed something. Minnesota began a 39–3 run in the second half, including overtime as Greg Joseph’s 40-yard field goal capped off the comeback. With this victory, the Vikings conquer the NFC North. Coach Kevin O’Connell also posted the biggest comeback in NFL history, as the Vikings came back from a 33-0 deficit!

DALVIN COOKS TO THE HOUSE

With 2:15 to go, the Vikings took eight points behind them. Turns out they only needed one play to reach the end zone.

Cook took it 64 yards to the home, and then TJ Hockenson scored the two-point conversion to tie the game at 36 apiece. A 36-3 run!

Matt Ryan QB sneak fail

The Colts had the ball up eight points with 2:52 left, and the Vikings successfully cleared all three of their timeouts. Facing a fourth-and-1 with 2:31 left, Ryan attempted to take the yard himself. However, the umpires ruled him short, so Jeff Saturday challenged the on-field call. After further investigation, the call remained on the field.

In the second quarter, it looked like the Vikings pulled off a memorable scoop-and-score thanks to Chandon Sullivan. However, the umpires ruled the game dead when Michael Pittman tried to fight for extra yards.

Then, in the fourth quarter, as the Vikings battled to stage the comeback, Jackson fumbled clear possession, and Sullivan picked up the ball again and ran it back for six.

However, officials ruled it dead.

Sullivan was beside himself and received a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Adam Thielen cuts Colts lead to eight points with 5 minutes left!

The Vikings trailed 33 points heading into the second half. Kevin O’Connell’s team has trimmed that lead to just eight points with 5:30 left in the fourth quarter. Don’t tell Matt Ryan, but Minnesota is currently on a 28-3 run and has a legitimate chance to pull off the comeback.

Cousins ​​led the Vikings on a five-play, 50-yard drive that ended with a one-yard Thielen touchdown. All of Minnesota’s great receivers are eating today.

Justin Jefferson pulls Vikings into fourth place within two scores

We may just have a game on our hands. Cousins ​​led a six-play, 61-yard drive early in the fourth quarter that was capped by this nasty Justin Jefferson touchdown. If Stephon Gilmore can’t keep up, no one can.

KJ Osborn gets Vikings on the board

The Vikings finally got on the board in the third quarter, and it’s thanks to KJ Osborn. The wideout failed to reel in a long pass in the first half, but made up for it with a catch and 63-yard run that brought Minnesota to the Colts’ 4-yard line. Three plays later, Osborn closed the drive with a touchdown.

Pick-six puts Colts up 30-0 before halftime

Things went from bad to worse for the Vikings on Saturday as their nightmare of a first half continued. With the Vikings facing third and third deep in their own territory, Cousins ​​missed Jalen Reagor on a curl route, and Julian Blackmon unpacked and returned it to the end zone for Indy’s third touchdown of the first half.

Colts DOMINATE the Vikings in the first quarter

The first quarter of the Colts-Vikings game was an unmitigated disaster for the home side. Who saw the Colts lead 17-0 at the end of the opening quarter?

Indy got the ball first and Matt Ryan orchestrated an 11-play, 44-yard drive that was capped by a 26-yard field goal. On the Vikings’ first possession, they went three-and-out, and then this happened.

Down 10-0 in the blink of an eye, Kirk Cousins ​​and Co. right the ship. Instead, Dalvin Cook fumbled possession two plays later. Ryan then led a seven-play, 66-yard drive that ended with the Colts’ first offensive touchdown of the afternoon.

The Colts are also doing this without the services of Jonathan Taylor, who left the game on the opening drive. He was soon ruled out with an ankle injury.

Miami arrives in snowy Buffalo with bags of cold-weather gear

The Dolphins are no longer in Miami. Old Man Winter arrived in Buffalo Friday night, leaving behind about eight inches of the white stuff. Buffalo isn’t done with the snow either, as a Lake Effect Snow Warning is in effect until 1pm ET on Sunday. According to the hourly forecast, precipitation will go from a “few snow showers” at 2PM ET, to “snow showers” at 5PM ET, and then just outright “snow” at kickoff at 8:15PM ET.

The dolphins are do their best to be prepared for the gloomy conditions as they brought 1,400lb cases of cold weather gear to Orchard Park, according to NFL Media. Each player has multiple cleats to try on to find the best grip in the snow.

Contenders or Pretenders? Let’s figure it out

Saturday NFL games are always bittersweet.

On the one hand, it is the unofficial beginning of the end of the regular season. Before we know it, more than half of the league will be watching the playoffs from the bench.

Then again, did I mention we’re getting Saturday NFL games?! No offense to the LendingTree Bowl or the SRS Distribution Las Vegas Bowl. Only, like many other football fans around the world, I prefer to watch Justin Jefferson and Jonathan Taylor; Mark Andrews and Nick Chubb; and Josh Allen and Tua Tagovailoa. From 1pm ET on Saturday until 11:30pm ET on Sunday, there will be 21 of the 34.5 hours of professional football! (And you’ll spend most of that free time sleeping.)

But not only is there a lot of NFL this weekend, there are also plenty of intriguing showdowns. Do the Lions, Jaguars and Panthers really have a chance to sneak into the playoffs in an unlikely way? To do that, Detroit must beat the miserly Jets and Jacksonville beat the Cowboys. Carolina has a little more wiggle room in the rotten NFC South, but losing to the Kenny Pickett-less Steelers would be a bad sight.

Elsewhere, the AFC’s wild card teams have gut-check type matchups. We’ve already mentioned the Jets, but there’s also the Patriots heading to Las Vegas, the Chargers trying to physically beat the Titans, and the Dolphins looking to win in freezing and snowy weather (against one of the Super Bowl favorites).

In the NFC, there’s basically an elimination game between the Saints and Falcons, a “are they really going to miss the playoffs?” fight for the Buccaneers against the Bengals, and a monstrous NFC East game between the Giants and Commanders on “Sunday Night Football”.

There is so much football to watch and so much at stake for so many of these teams. Let’s see who puts the season on the line.
