Still no points for the Cards from the first quarter

Inexplicably, the Cardinals have yet to score in the first quarter this season. Five games, zero points in the first 15 minutes. The fact that they entered Sunday 2-2 is pretty remarkable.

A dazzling first career catch

Injuries have plagued Tutu Atwell since joining the Rams as a second-round pick in 2021, but he’s a big-time threat that showed as much in Sunday’s first quarter. The Rams needed someone to make a play, and the 5-foot-9 speedster did just that, hauling in Matthew Stafford’s perfectly thrown ball for a 54-yard pickup.

RB Mosses CB

Tevin Coleman is only 6-foot-1, but he played like 6-foot-5 in leapfrogging Myles Hartsfield for a 30-yard catch.

Scoop and score

DeMarcus Lawrence didn’t wait for the offense to get on the field to try to score the first points of the game. Instead, Lawrence picked up the ball after a Dorrance Armstrong Jr. field goal and took it 19 yards to the house less than two minutes into the game.

Taysom Hill is ELECTRIC

The Saints got a much-needed win over the Seahawks on Sunday thanks almost entirely to Taysom Hill. He scored not one, not two, not three, but FOUR touchdowns as New Orleans beat Seattle in a 39-32 thriller. His final stat line: nine carries for 112 yards and three scores on the ground to go along with a 22-yard touchdown pass. If New Orleans hopes to contend for a playoff spot this season, it will need to rely more on Hill, as it did on Sunday.

Crushing INT

The Commanders are now 1-4 after Carson Wentz threw a terrible goal-line pass as they were trying to pull away for the win late in the fourth. It was his sixth interception in five games. Meanwhile, the Titans are atop the AFC South after their third straight win.

Another rookie RB TD

We had rookies James Cook and Damien Pierce score touchdowns today, and now Kenneth Walker III is on that list. Taking on more of the workload for the injured Rashaad Penny, the second-rounder broke through the middle and scampered untouched for a 69-yard touchdown.

The game winning FG is not good

Brandon Staley nearly gave the Browns the win after his Chargers’ fourth down fumble in their own territory. However, the defense stepped up and rookie Cade York’s 53-yard field goal attempt went wide right. Los Angeles moves to 3-2.

Another red area INT

Jacoby Brissett has been competent for the Browns through the first three quarters of games this season. But during the final frame, and more specifically with the play at the line, Deshaun Watson’s fill-in seriously faltered. Just an ugly, ugly interception with a chance for Cleveland to take the lead with less than three minutes left.

Geno AGAIN

Shockingly, the Seahawks have been one of the most fun offenses to watch so far this season. It’s basically just Geno Smith throwing deep to DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, and it was magnificent. Smith just threw another clean touchdown pass to Lockett, this time for 40 yards.

This is the Tysum Hill we know and love. Not only did he rush seven times for 51 yards, but his only completion led to a 22-yard score to Adam Troutman.

Browns-Chargers in a shootout

Last season’s meeting between the Browns and Chargers resulted in 89 points — a 47-42 victory in Los Angeles. We have another penalty shootout on Sunday as the teams have combined for 55 points entering the fourth quarter. The final score came courtesy of Kareem Hunt, whose two-yard score gave Cleveland back the lead.

Dyami x2

Who is Dyami you ask? This is Dyami Brown of the Commanders, a third-round pick out of North Carolina in 2021. It’s understandable if you don’t know him, because in his first 19 career games, he had just 13 catches for 171 yards and zero touchdowns. He already has 105 yards Sunday and his first two career touchdowns, including that beautiful one-handed dunk.

Zappe delivers

All New England Patriots were on Sunday. And while rookie quarterback Bailey Zappé hasn’t carried the offense, he’s more than capable of filling in for Mack Jones. Zappe completed 16 of 19 passes for 165 yards, one interception and that touchdown to Jacoby Myers to extend the lead.

First career TD

Shouts to Velus Jones Jr. of the Bears, who scored his first career TD on a jet sweep to pull the Bears within one score.

First career INT

Oh no, Trevor Lawrence. Trying to force a pass into the end zone on second-and-1 from the seven-yard line, Lawrence threw it right to Derek Stingley Jr., the No. 3 pick in this year’s draft. A big mistake by Lawrence keeps the game all tied up.

Lockett quieted the crowd

The Saints looked poised to go into halftime with the lead. Alvin Kamara then fumbled and Geno Smith did what he’s done all year, throwing the ball in the tight window to Tyler Lockett for the 35-yard touchdown in the final seconds.

Josh Allen is CRAZY

It’s like Josh Allen plays Madden easy sometimes. Against a Steelers defense that entered the contest allowing 251.5 passing yards per game, he had 348 yards and four touchdowns … IN TWO QUARTERS. Even crazier is that Allen only completed 14 passes. That’s 24.9 yards per completion, which is off the charts explosive.

10-for-138

Those were Justin Jefferson’s first half stats. Ten receptions (10 targets each) for 138 yards. One of, if not the best wide receiver in football, showing against the Bears.

Catch of the day?

Of course, anything is possible, but I don’t think we’ll see a better catch today than the one Darnell Mooney made against the Vikings. What a beauty!

Have a great day Gabe Davis!

An ankle injury has slowed Gabe Davis for the first month of the season. He missed Week 2, and in the games he did play, he managed just eight receptions for 138 yards. Well, he certainly looked healthy against the Steelers as he racked up 160 yards… IN THE FIRST HALF. He already has touchdown runs of 98 and 62 yards for an average of 80 yards per catch. This is funny.

Cousins ​​on FIRE

Kirk Cousins ​​in prime time? No thanks. Kirk Cousins ​​overseas? It’s not ideal. But Kirk Cousins ​​at 1pm ET? This is where the Vikings quarterback shines, and he has been flawless thus far against the Bears. He threw 17 straight innings to start the game, a franchise record. Those completions led to 176 yards and a touchdown as Minnesota is in complete control.

Wentz bomb

The Commanders offense has been out of place the past two weeks. Carson Wentz is trying to change that in Week 5, and he was hoping sophomore Diami Brown would do it. With Brown in one-on-one coverage, Wentz fired a perfect deep ball that his wideout caught in stride, which he took 75 yards for the score.

Rookie RB is released

Second-round pick Brice Hall is improving every week for the Jets, and he already had a great first-half game against the Dolphins. No one picked up Hall out of the backfield, leading to an easy punt and catch that went 79 yards down to the Miami 1-yard line. Michael Carter then found the end zone to put New York up double digits.

Ekeler to the races

Desperately needing a spark, the Chargers got one from Austin Ekeler, who made a cut and raced for a 71-yard gain. Credit to Greg Newsom II though. He tracked down Ekeler before crossing the goal line, which ended up saving four points as Los Angeles had to settle for a field goal.

Jeno is still cooking

Geno Smith was one of the NFL’s best stories in four weeks and he’s off to another great start against the Saints. Two passes, two completions, 65 yards and that 50-yard strike to DK Metcalf on the move to put the Seahawks ahead.

SAFETY!

The No. 4 overall pick isn’t just a cornerback with lockdown coverage. Sos Gardner can also play in the backline and Teddy Bridgewater learned the hard way in his first snap of the game. After a corner blitz, Gardner blasted Bridgewater to force an intentional grounding in the end zone. This is safety! 2-0 Jets.

Chubb can’t be stopped

Nick Chubb might be the best pure back in the NFL, so the Chargers might want to land the Browns’ three-time Pro Bowler. That didn’t happen on this play, as Chubb came off one interception, avoided another and bounced off a third before barreling down the right sideline for a 41-yard touchdown.

98 yards!

A potentially disastrous start turned into the perfect one for the Bills. After Tywan Jones muffed a kickoff, backing up Buffalo at its own two-yard line, Josh Allen more than made up for it by unloading a punt that flew over the heads of two Steelers defenders and into the hands of Gabe Davis. The explosive wide out carried him the rest of the way for a 98-YARD touchdown on the opening drive.

Barkley hits back

After missing some time with a shoulder injury, Giants running back Saquon Barkley returned in a big way during the second half of Sunday’s game against the Packers. Barkley’s 41-yard catch-and-carry setup his good touchdown run in the middle of the fourth quarter.

Giants trick or treat for TD

Daniel Bellinger’s touchdown was certainly a treat for Giants fans as the tight end’s score cut New York’s deficit to 17-10 in the second quarter. The score was the result of some trickery by Brian Daboll, as Bellinger’s score came on a bench play after 40 yard dash by Barkley.

Tight end Marcedes Lewis ran into the end zone for his first touchdown of the 2020 season as Green Bay added a second touchdown in the first half in London on Sunday. Lewis’ score gave the Packers a 17-3 lead over the Giants in a game between two 3-1 teams.

No rain in sight for week 5

If you’re in any fantasy league, it’s always worth checking the weather. Don’t make the same mistake I did.

Last week, the remnants of Hurricane Ian brought heavy rain to the Jaguars-Eagles game in Philadelphia and the Bills-Ravens matchup in Baltimore. Rain is generally a bad thing for fantasy, and it’s especially bad for kicks. Yet when the 1pm games started last weekend, the Eagles’ Jake Elliott was in my starting lineup. Not surprisingly, he failed.

For those worried about bad weather for Week 5, whether for fantasy purposes or otherwise, don’t be. As of Friday afternoon, at least according to Rotowire’s weather report, nine of the 15 games scheduled for Sunday and Monday are expecting clear skies, three are expecting partly cloudy skies and three are being played in domes where you’d expect optimal conditions. Of all the races, only one has any chance of rain at kickoff. It’s the Texans vs. Jaguars in Jacksonville…with a 2% chance of precipitation. Don’t expect wind to be a big factor, either, according to RotoGrinders chief meteorologist Kevin Roth.

What I’m really trying to say is that if your favorite team (or fantasy team) loses in Week 5, you have no one to blame but those on the field (or in your lineup).
