Welcome to game day.
Note: All times listed in pacific.
A fine way to end the second slate of games.
The Patriots have burned Pittsburgh on deep crossers all game, so they changed up their approach for the two-minute drill.
Several plays later, New England faces fourth-and-15 just outside of the red zone.
A tipped pass in the middle of the field elicits fear in the heart of every quarterback. Ben Roethlisberger saw that fear validated early in the fourth quarter.
Pittsburgh clings to a 14-10 lead with under nine minutes left to play.
3:15 p.m. - Disasterous red-zone trip results in zero points for Steelers
A deep completion to James Washington and a few more large gainers set up the Steelers in the red zone. Everything after that point proved disastrous. Ben Roethlisberger followed an incomplete pass with an intentional-grounding penalty. He then sent a pass just a bit too far for tight end Vance McDonald to catch and stay in bounds, setting up a field-goal attempt. Chris Boswell then took over, blowing yet another kick.
Antonio Brown had a fairly quiet start to the fantasy playoffs last week, catching just five passes for 35 yards. For fantasy managers who survived the poor showing, Brown has delivered a strong followup. Early in the second quarter, he hauled in a difficult pass from Ben Roethlisberger for the go-ahead touchdown.
Brown currently has three catches for 25 yards and the aforementioned score.
Look away, fantasy managers.
Between the missed extra point and the non-tackle on the return, Sebastian Janikowski might want to stay away from the internet for the rest of Sunday.
The Seahawks have matched deep into the red zone and should end up with the first score of the game.
Jackson went into the blue medical tent after the play, but the pick effectively ends the Packers' hopes of a comeback.
Tevin Coleman has delivered a career performance Sunday. After a 65-yarder in the first half, Coleman ran nearly as far for his second score of the day.
Miami trails 21-17 after previously trailing by three scores.
Chicago now holds a 14-3 lead over Green Bay.
Countless jokes have been lobbed in Allen's direction this year, but he looks like one of the league's better young running backs.
Atlanta settled for a field goal but now lead Arizona 10-7.
10:21 a.m. - #FreeDavidJohnson
The Cardinals have made life difficult for star running back David Johnson all season. Their unwillingness to use him more frequently on outside runs and split out as a receiver has contributed to the offensive stagnation as well as the mid-season firing of offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. Fixing those issues has become a focus for replacement play-caller Byron Leftwich, but he hasn't always achieved the desired results.
Still, Arizona has made some progress with Johnson, as illustrated by his 40-yard reception during the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Minnesota leads 7-0 early in the first quarter.
