Chiefs at Chargers, 8:20 p.m. ET (Gametracker)
One of the most unlikely three-touchdown scorers of the season will most definitely be Bengals running back Samaje Perine. Before Joe Mixon left with a concussion, Perine got into the end zone twice. And after he was sidelined, Perine scored once more to put the finishing touches on an impressive AFC North win. Perine's final stat line: 11 carries for 30 yards; four carries for 52 yards and three touchdowns.
In what's been a trying season for the Raiders, it's gonna be all smiles heading home from Denver after their come-from-behind, walk-off win over a division rival. It was the Fresno State duo once again, with Derek Carr connecting with Davante Adams with no one within several yards of him for the game-winning 35-yard score. As for the Broncos, it's already their third overtime loss of the season, which ties an NFL record.
Most of the damage Josh Jacobs has done Sunday has come on the ground (24 carries for 109 yards), but by far his biggest play of the game Sunday came through the air. Needing a big play with a minute left and trailing by three, Jacobs dusted a linebacker out of the backfield and made the catch in stride for a 43-yard pickup. Las Vegas couldn't punch in the game-winning score, but Jacobs' reception set up the game-tying field goal that sent the matchup into overtime.
The catches this rookie makes are just ridiculous. And while this SNAG doesn't measure up to the catch Pickens made Week 3 against the Browns, you just don't see players make plays like this -- even in the NFL. The level of difficulty is absurd.
That's probably what T.J. Watt said to Joe Burrow when he snagged Burrow's laser of a pass from just 3 yards away. Just one of the many reasons why Watt is the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
Tony Pollard AGAIN
Pollard caught more than 100 passes over three seasons at Memphis as a hybrid running back/wide receiver, so he has no problem making plays in the passing game. Combine his skill set with a linebacker in coverage, and you get the type of play that happened coming out of the half. Technically, Pollard ran a wheel route out of the backfield; in reality, he just blew past Jordan Hicks and caught Dak Prescott's pass in stride. With his 68-yard touchdown, the rout is officially on.
60-yard FG (x2)
As Tony Romo said on the CBS broadcast, the Cowboys' Brett Maher does not miss 60-yard field goals. He entered Sunday's game as the NFL's all-time leader in 60-plus-yard field goals with three, and he lined up for the fourth in the final seconds of the first half against the Vikings. Just like the previous three, Maher knocked it through the uprights.
However, before Maher attempted the kick, there was a review of CeeDee Lamb's ridiculous sideline catch, which you can see below.
The call stood, but it forced Maher to re-kick his 60-plus yarder -- of which there have only been 25 all time. Of course, Maher's second attempt was even better than the first! Make that 4-for-4 for Maher in his career, which is an unbelievable accomplishment.
Rookie Kenny Pickett got absolutely ROCKED as he let the ball go with just under two minutes left in the first half. Unfortunately for the Bengals, Pickett's throw was on the money to fellow rookie George Pickens, who leisurely ran under the ball and crossed the end zone from 24 yards out.
Tony Pollard is ELECTRIC
Just get the ball to him in space and watch him go to work. On this occasion, he caught a bubble pass out to the right and was off to the races for a 30-yard score. Even with Elliott back, Pollard has been a stud for the third straight week. Halftime stats: 10 carries, 57 yards; three receptions, 34 yards and a touchdown. Just a very fun player to watch.
Leaping into the end zone
Najee Harris' disappointing season took a positive turn last week when he gobbled up 99 yards on 20 carries in the Steelers' win over the Saints. He's off to another good start Sunday, highlighted by a 19-yard score in which he leapt across the goal line.
TD No. 9
No one has caught more touchdowns this season than Davante Adams, who just ran away from two defenders to bring in a perfectly thrown ball from Derek Carr. The 31-yard score marked Adams' ninth of the year, breaking a tie with Travis Kelce for the most in the NFL.
Perfectly executed screen
Samaje Perine should get his wide receivers something nice for all the work they did on his 29-yard touchdown. Perine was actually in front of two of his linemen after making the catch, but he still was able to scamper down the right sideline because of the great blocks from his fellow skill players. Bengals retake the lead over the Steelers.
Welcome back, Zeke
The calls for Tony Pollard to have a bigger workload are completely valid ( ), but where he doesn't compare to Ezekiel Elliott is at the goal line. We saw exactly that late in the first quarter Sunday. Pollard, who had two big runs on the drive, was stuffed twice right outside the goal line. That's when the Cowboys brought in Zeke, who after missing the past two games crossed the goal line for his fifth score of the season.
Adam Vinatieri's record lives
One of the highlights of Adam Vinatieri's future Hall of Fame career was when he made 44 consecutive field goals spanning from 2015 to 2016. That record has been safe since, though entering Sunday, the Raiders' Daniel Carlson had made 41 in a row. He had a chance to make that 42 in the first quarter against the Broncos -- except he pushed his 44-yard wide right. Carlson will have to settle for third behind Mike Vanderjagt and Vinatieri.
Game-winning punt return!!!
Unbelievable. In what would have been in the conversation for worst game of the entire season, the Patriots-Jets finish was one of the best we'll see all year. On the 16th punt (!) of the afternoon, rookie Marcus Jones fielded the ball at his own 26-yard line, broke to the outside, saw a crease up the sideline and exploded through it. With one man to beat, Jones decisively cut back to the middle of the field and left the punter in the dust, crossing the goal line with just 5 seconds to play to lift the Patriots to a huge division victory.
Hurts helps Eagles survive
If you want something done, do it yourself. Jalen Hurts did just that with the game on the line as he took the shotgun snap, took a two-step drop, planted and exploded up the middle before waltzing across the goal line. For as bad as Philadelphia played, Hurts' touchdown in the final two minutes turned out to be a game-winning score.
It's actually impressive that the Panthers and Ravens combined for zero touchdowns in the first three-and-a-half quarters. Lamar Jackson finally said, 'enough of that,' taking the zone-read keeper off right tackle for the 1-yard score.
Fields' magic leads to TD
Justin Fields seems to have passed Kyler Murray as the closest thing in the NFL to Lamar Jackson, and his scrambling magic was on fully display on a crucial third-and-12 inside the red zone. After avoiding defenders for about 10 seconds, Fields finally found Equanimeous St. Brown for the first-down conversion. A few plays later, the game was all tied up on David Montgomery's touchdown run.
Mariota moseys into the end zone
The Bears jumped out to a 10-point lead, but it's been all Falcons since. Make that 17 unanswered points after Marcus Mariota's 10-yard scamper gave Atlanta back the lead early in the fourth quarter.
Eagles had life...
It took three quarters, but the Eagles are finally playing like a team that shares the best record in the NFL. First Jalen Hurts delivered a laser to Quez Watkins for the touchdown -- the team's first of the game. -- and on the ensuing possession, the defense stripped Jonathan Taylor to set up Philadelphia in Colts territory.
Well, they were playing like an 8-1 team ... until A.J. Brown fumbled, giving the ball right back to the Colts, who are looking to pull a big-time upset.
Njoku goes UP
Bills safety Jordan Poyer dove at the legs of David Njoku, which is usually a good strategy against bigger pass-catchers. But Njoku had a feeling it was coming, so he SOARED over Poyer and landed on his feet before getting pushed out of bounds. Such an athletic play from the 6-foot-4, 246-pounder.
Yes, I yelled that in my head when rookie Chris Olave got behind the Rams defense and hauled in a 53-yard bomb from Andy Dalton. He's been awesome for New Orleans all season, and Sunday has been no different. He's caught four passes for 97 yards and the aformentioned score.
Someone might wanna cover Diggs
It doesn't matter that Stefon Diggs didn't have a target for the first 29 minutes, 46 seconds of the game. You don't just leave him WIDE OPEN in the end zone. The Browns completely forgot about the two-time Pro Bowler, allowing Josh Allen to find him for a five-yard score to take the lead before halftime.
No one has returned more kickoffs for touchdowns than Cordarrelle Patterson, who made everyone else on the field look like they were in slo-mo on his 103-YARD touchdown. Even at 31 years old, Patterson remain electric. It marked the ninth kick return score of his career, which with Josh Cribbs for the most in NFL history.
10 in 10
Ten touchdowns in the past 10 quarters for Justin Fields, who carried the Bears' rushing attack in the first half. He's already racked up 73 yards on 14 carries and this four-yard rushing score.
Williams scores third TD on day, 12th on season
Jamaal Williams has been one of the biggest surprises of the season. With D'Andre Swift battling injuries, Williams has had a much more prominent role for the Lions. Even in games where Swift is involved, Williams has been almost automatic as the goal-line back. In scoring twice in the first half and once to begin the third quarter Sunday, Williams passed Nick Chubb for the most rushing touchdowns in the NFL this season with 12.
Williams also passes Barry Sanders for the franchise record for most rushing touchdowns in the first 10 games of a season.
Top draft pick ends streak
Daniel Jones had not thrown an interception since Week 3 (152 attempts), but that streak came to an end, courtesy of Lions top draft pick Aidan Hutchinson. The No. 2 overall selection dropped a few steps back into coverage and then PLUCKED the ball out of midair for his second interception of his rookie campaign.
Justin Fields is the biggest reason for the Bears' offensive explosion in recent weeks, but he's not the only reason. Tight end Cole Kmet has played an integral role, too, with plays like this one, which went for 24 yards.
Who says 330-pounders can't catch! With the Ravens inside the red zone, Panthers defensive tackle Bravvion Roy shed his block as Lamar Jackson prepared to throw, got his hands in the passing lane and then hauled in the interception to keep the game scoreless.
Samuel slips through the defense
The Commanders signed Curtis Samuel to be an all-around offensive weapon, and after injuries robbed him of nearly all of last season, he's making good on the team's investment. Check out this jet sweep to Samuel, who weaves in and out of the defense on his way to the end zone from 10 yards out.
Welcome to the NFL, Kenyon Green! The first-round guard has been solid for the Texans so far this season, but he had NO CHANCE against Commanders Pro Bowler Jonathan Allen. This is just disrespectful from Allen, who basically sacked Green and Davis Mills at the same time.
With Cooper Kupp reportedly out six to eight weeks after ankle surgery, the other Rams receivers have to step up if they have any chance of getting back into the playoff race. 2021 second-rounder Tutu Atwell is doing his part, running past his defender down the left sideline and catching a dime from Matthew Stafford for the 62-yard touchdown.
Fields off to great start
Justin Fields has been electric over the past month, and the Falcons are getting an early taste of it Sunday. A huge kick return from rookie Velus Jones Jr. set up the Bears in plus territory, and Fields basically did the rest with nine rushing yards and a few completions, including this 16-yard scoring strike to Darnell Mooney.
London finds pay dirt
The run-heavy Falcons offense has overshadowed the talent and potential of Drake London, but the first-rounder made his presence known in the first quarter Sunday. His two-yard touchdown catch capped an impressive 10-play, 75-yard for Atlanta.
Browns strike first
For the second straight game, the Browns marched right down the field for a touchdown to start the game against a Super Bowl contender. Last week it was the Dolphins; this week, the Bills. Nine plays, 75 yards and this 25-yard touchdown strike from Jacoby Brissett to Amari Cooper. Heck of a start for Cleveland, which is hoping this turns out better than last week. After going up 7-0 on Miami, the Browns ended up getting blown out, 39-17.
Brutal start for the Texans' Davis Mills. He was looking for Brandin Cooks on his second pass of the game, only for Commanders cornerback Kendall Fuller to jump the route, secure the interception and go untouched into the end zone for the 37-yard score.
It's nice seeing Jonathan Taylor at full health. The reigning rushing champion had one of his best games of the season last week, and he's off to a great start Sunday, ripping off a 28-yard run on the Colts' opening drive against the Eagles. A few plays later, he got Indianapolis on the board first with a one-yard score.
Looking for playoff picture clarity
The Dolphins are currently the No. 2 seed in the AFC, while the Bengals are ninth and on the outside looking in. However, only one game separates the two teams in the loss column. That's how jumbled up the AFC is right now.
Fortunately, Sunday's Week 11 slate should provide some clarity. If the Patriots can sweep the Jets, they'll have the same record but the all-important tiebreaker as they both look to make the postseason. Meanwhile, the Chargers have a massive opportunity not only to jump into a wild card spot, but also pull within one game of the top-seeded Chiefs if they can take them down on "Sunday Night Football." As for the Bengals, they'll be looking to keep pace with the AFC North-leading Ravens, but a road matchup with a stingy Steelers squad won't be easy.
In the NFC, things are far more clear -- though there are some showdowns that will surely impact playoff seeding. Can the Vikings stay hot against the Cowboys, staking their claim atop the conference? Can Washington move closer to a wild-card spot against the lowly Texans? And then there's the NFC West. If the 49ers beat the Cardinals in Mexico City on Monday night, they'll pull into a tie with the Seahawks atop the division. But lose to Arizona, and all of the sudden Kliff Kingsbury's team is square in the playoff mix.
There are still eight more Sundays of regular season football (including today), so a lot can happen between now and Week 18. But with the 2022 campaign more than halfway over, every result will impact who plays on and who stays home come January.
