Game of the week
Green Bay Packers (8-2) – Seattle Seahawks (3-6)
Result: 17: 0 (0: 0, 3: 0, 0: 0, 14: 0) BOXSCORE
The Green Bay Packers are back on the winning streak with the return of Aaron Rodgers from Covid-IR. In the snowy Champ Lambeau, spectators saw everything but fireworks.
It took up to five minutes in the fourth quarter before the Packers managed to score the game’s first touchdown – running back AJ Dillon carried the leather 3 yards into the end zone. Previously, Crosby had a 27-yard field goal in the second quarter. Dillon also scored the second touchdown of the game in the final two minutes of the game.
Early in the game, Packers kicker Mason Crosby missed a field goal shortly before the break the Packers were stopped on a fourth attempt and the Seahawks, where Russell Wilson also returned after a break from the game. ‘a week failed with a Hail Mary. in the dying seconds of the first half – after a questionable detention penalty thwarted a field goal opportunity.
Wilson, on the other hand, was not yet in great shape after his broken finger. He seemed to have a hard time throwing the ball with full control, resulting in inaccurate passes. He also made two interceptions in the second half, both in the end zone. The first happened in the red zone, the second with a deep ball, unlike the first, Rodgers also threw an interception in the red zone.
The Packers won the game but had to worry about running back Aaron Jones, who had to come out with a knee injury late in the third quarter. An accurate diagnosis is still pending.
- This result is also historically relevant as it was the Seahawks’ first shutout since Russell Wilson debuted in 2012 – in his 150th game for Seattle.
Dallas Cowboys (7-2) – Atlanta Falcons (4-5)
Result: 43: 3 (7: 3, 29: 0, 7: 0, 0: 0) BOXSCORE
- The Cowboys’ performance last week may have been underwhelming, but Dallas rehabilitated against the Falcons – more than that! The hosts dominated all aspects of the game and were in fact already the winners at halftime.
- In the first half alone, Dak Prescott made 18 of 23 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns, especially CeeDee Lamb has repeatedly caught important balls, on third downs or in the end zone. When the score was 28: 3 (Falcons fans should remember the result), Dallas then blocked a punt before the break and scored another touchdown. Game over.
- Matt Ryan did not get involved at all and therefore could not confirm the positive impressions from the previous weeks. The Falcons quarterback threw two interceptions – one on Trevon Diggs, his eighth this season – and was eventually replaced by Josh Rosen given the massive backlog. However, he was no longer able to provide highlights.
- One of the winners of the game was undoubtedly Dan Quinn. The former Falcons head coach had to take his hat off and was later employed by the Cowboys as a defensive coordinator. With only three approved points and two forced turnovers, he celebrated a real revenge match!
Tennessee Titans (8-2) – New Orleans Saints (5-4)
Result: 23:21 (3: 0, 10: 6, 7: 6, 3: 9) BOXSCORE
- Please defeat for New Orleans, Tennessee. In the end, the little things decided between victory and defeat. An interception by Ryan Tannehill in the opposing end zone was recalled after a highly questionable passer call, shortly before the end the Saints were fortunate enough at 21:23 to equalize at least with his two-point conversion . However, a false start forced the guests to play from the 7-yard line. Mark Ingram’s transmission attempt was unsuccessful.
- Trevor Siemian played a very respectable game for the Saints. The quarterback moved the ball offensively, reaching 8.8 yards per attempted pass and two no-turnover touchdowns. Mark Ingram had 47 rushing yards, making him the all-time best rusher in Saints history.
- An extremely questionable decision was made by Sean Payton in the fourth quarter. With a fourth delay from the one-yard line, the coach kicked the basket at 12:23, reducing it to an eight-point deficit. Although New Orleans managed a touchdown soon after, the team had to bring the ball into the end zone on a two-point conversion. Could you have played the fourth down earlier?
- With the Titans, success in the racing game without Derrick Henry was very limited. Neither D’Onta Foreman, Adrian Peterson, nor Jeremy McNichols were able to save a lot of space. Receiver Marcus Johnson attacked a breakout game with five catches for 100 yards. In defense, the rush against his camp was once again very convincing.
Indianapolis Colts (5-5) – Jacksonville Jaguars (2-7)
Result: 23:17 (17: 6, 3: 3, 0: 0, 3: 8) BOXSCORE
- Even the first quarter was not played, while the game between the Colts and the Jaguars seemed already decided: after a touchdown by a clearance block, Jonathan Taylor went to 17-0 with a touchdown. But the meeting should actually become exciting again.
- Immediately after, Jamal Agnew scored the first touchdown for the Jaguars when he received a jet-sweep transfer from Lawrence and carried the ball over 66 yards into the opposing end zone. Kicker Matthew Wright missed the extra point but managed a field goal 56 yards just before the break.
- The Colts offense revealed a lot of sand in the gear after their good start to the game. The records after the 17-0 lead for Indy: three and-out, three-and-out, three-and-out, field goal, punt, three-and-out, punt and another three-and-out . After the strong performance against the Bills, the defense of the Jaguars was also able to convince this week.
- With two minutes remaining, the Jaguars even had the chance to win the game with a touchdown on their last drive. However, during a scrambling attempt, Trevor Lawrence lost the ball from his hands 50 seconds before the end. Kemoko Turay secured the egg and it was over.
New England Patriots (6-4) – Cleveland Browns (5-5)
Result: 45: 7 (7: 7, 17: 0, 7: 0, 14: 0) BOXSCORE
- What a spectacle of the Patriots! As in Tom Brady’s better days, they rode offensively on their opponents and also played an absolutely dominant defensive role. The Browns face some nasty questions after this performance. Competition in the AFC North has also stumbled, but in this form Cleveland is not a contender for the division title.
- Mac Jones had his best game so far in the NFL and took down the Browns high school with several accurate passes with virtually no problem, especially John Johnson was attacked over and over again. Jones threw three touchdown passes and was cleared to call early, Brian Hoyer came on for him.
- Behind a dominant offensive line, Rhamondre Stevenson also shone. The rookie was allowed to run 20 times in the absence of Damien Harris (concussion) and used his chance well: Stevenson came from 100 yards and two touchdowns. Another Feeld Good story: Jakobi Meyers finally caught his first touchdown in the NFL shortly before the end of the game, before there were 134 catches in a row without a scoring.
- On the Browns’ side, Baker Mayfield fell brutally, Mayfield threw a pickax into Kyle Dugger’s arms and was lucky with two or three more passes that there were no more interceptions. After a hit from Matthew Judon, Mayfield had to leave the field in the second half, apparently with a knee injury and was replaced by Case Keenum. D’Ernest Johnson ran in the absence of Nick Chubb and Co.
