Slay takes it all the way

The Broncos could have tied the game, or at least pulled within four with a field goal. Instead, Darius Slay scooped up a fumble from Melvin Gordon and somehow danced, pranced and burst through a sea of orange until all he saw was green on his way to a 82-yard score. You may not see a better touchdown from a defender the rest of the season.

Rodgers throws end zone INT

Aaron Rodgers matched Russell Wilson late in the third quarter Sunday, but it wasn't in a good way. The possession after the Packers' defense intercepted the Seahawks signal-caller in the end zone, Rodgers threw an end zone pick of his own to Jamal Adams.

Cousins' prayer is answered

On fourth-and-goal, Kirk Cousins took the snap from under center, dropped backed, then dropped back some more because unblocked linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga was coming to take his head off. Just as Ogbongbemiga pummeled Cousins, he floated the ball toward the right-middle of the end zone. Luckily, an unguarded Tyler Conklin was there to haul in the 1-yard score.

Cousins to Conklin again! @Vikings take the lead in LA. #SKOL

Russ throws end zone INT

You would think Russell Wilson against Aaron Rodgers would yield a lot of points, but it's been punt after punt after punt in this NFC showdown. Seattle finally got into the red zone midway through the third quarter -- only for Kevin King to intercept Wilson in the end zone. Seattle continues to be shut out in Wilson's first game back from injury.

JJ skies for big gain

Sophom*ore Justin Jefferson is one of the best young receivers in the NFL, and he showed why again Sunday by contorting his body in the air to come down with this 27-yard pickup.

Herbert INT sets up TD

Deep in his own territory, Justin Herbert thought he had a small window to find Keenan Allen in the middle of the field. But at the last second, linebacker Eric Kendricks emphatically closed it by making a diving interception. Six plays later, the Vikings extended their advantage to 10 with the game's first touchdown.

Spectacular birthday TD

DeVonta Smith is celebrating his 23rd birthday on Sunday, and instead of waiting for presents, he went and got one late in the first quarter. Running a wheel route down the right sideline, Smith made a jumping, twirling catch with fellow rookie Patrick Surtain II draped all over him. The 36-yard snag opened the scoring.

'I'M BACK!'

Cam Newton returning to the Panthers was the heart-warming storyline entering Week 10, and it's gotten so much better in his first game back. Not only is Newton active for Carolina's game against the NFC's top-seeded Cardinals, but he's created touchdowns on his first two touches. Everyone knew Newton would run the ball when he entered the game on second-and-goal on Carolina's first possession, yet Newton found the end zone anyway before ripping off his helmet and screaming "I'm back!" into the FOX cameras.

CAM NEWTON IS BACK.

Newton returned to the field on the Panthers' next drive, but instead of plowing through the Cardinals defense with his legs, he rolled out to his right and hit Robby Anderson for the 2-yard score.

Lions miss game-winning FG

The Lions were oh so close to finally getting into the win column, but in classic Lions fashion, kicker Ryan Santoso mis-hit a 48-yard field goal in overtime that landed short of the uprights.

Lawrence fumbles away game

It was a great game to begin with for Trevor Lawrence, who completed less than 50% of his passes (16-for-35) for just 162 yards and took three sacks. Then, with a chance to lead the Jaguars to the game-winning score in the final minute, the reigning No. 1 overall pick lost the ball trying to scramble. The Colts recovered and were able to drain the rest of the game clock to hand Jacksonville its seventh defeat of the year.

19-play drive?!

Nineteen plays, 80 yards, 10 minutes, 26 seconds taken off the clock. That's super impressive in its own right, but it's even more shocking when you consider it came on the last drive of the game to bury the Super Bowl champion Buccaneers. Washington running back Antonio Gibson capped the monumental possession with a 1-yard touchdown with 29 seconds left to clinch the upset victory.

Jakobi Meyers FINALLY scores TD

Playing in his 39th-career game in his third NFL season, Meyers finally ended the drought and scored his first professional touchdown! It marked his 135th catch in the league but the first in which he crossed the goal line.

Mike Evans burns secondary

It seemed like only a matter of time before Mike Evans got behind the NFL's worst pass defense, and it happened with about 11 minutes to go. Shortly after the Bucs forced a much-needed fumble, Evans burned the cornerback, who attempted to press him, and left Brady with one of the easiest throws he's made all day for the 40-yard score.

Heinicke outdueling Brady

Right after the Buccaneers cut the deficit to a field goal, Taylor Heinicke and company immediately responded with an 8-play, 71-yard drive that Antonio Gibson capped with a physical, one-yard run. Washington back up by 10.

Bucs inch closer

A double-digit deficit is no longer for the Bucs, as Tom Brady completed all four of his passes for 43 yards on the latest drive, including a six-yard touchdown to Cameron Brate.

The Stefon Diggs drive

Stefon Diggs wasn't content with the Bills taking a 10-3 lead into halftime over the Jets, so he single-handedly led a touchdown drive before the break. First he flat out beat his defender down the left sideline and caught the ball in stride for a 57-yard pickup. Four plays later, he made a much more difficult catch to put Buffalo up double digits.

Dak's moon ball lands for TD

Facing heavy pressure, Dak Prescott continued backpedalling before just throwing the ball up towards the left side of the end zone. When it finally came down, CeeDee Lamb settled under it for his second score of the afternoon.

Lions running over Steelers

The Lions had not rushed for more than 137 yards in a game entered Sunday and were averaging just 93.1 per contest (26th in the NFL). In just over two quarters Sunday, Detroit has 199 yards on the ground, including touchdowns of 28 and 42 yards from NFL unknowns Jermar Jefferson and Godwin Igwebuike.

Mac Jones dealing

The 15th overall pick in the 2021 draft is carving up the Browns defense in a game with AFC playoff implications. He's hit nine of his first 10 passes for 116 yards and a pair of touchdowns, the second of which came on a perfectly placed strike to Kendrick Bourne for the 23-yard score.

The Buccaneers closed as 10-point favorites against Washington, yet midway through the second quarter, they're staring at a double-digit deficit after Taylor Heinicke threw this pristine touchdown pass to DeAndre Carter.

Agnew races for the TD

Just when you thought the Jaguars were dead, Trevor Lawrence handed the ball to Jamal Agnew and watched him do the rest, knifing through the Colts defense and then outrunning everyone for a 66-yard score.

Jamal Agnew just makes big plays.

Block punt TD!

The Colts don't want the Jaguars thinking they have any chance to beat their AFC South rival, and they've done a great job of that in the first quarter. Indianapolis began the game with a long field goal drive, then extended its advantage when Zaire Franklin blocked a punt and E.J. Speed returned it 12 yards to the house.

Stuff & Score.

Tom Brady intercepted (twice)

OK, so this was in no way Brady's fault, but it's an interception nonetheless for the GOAT. With the Bucs already down, 3-0, Brady thought he delivered a completion to Jaelon Darden. But just as the ball arrived, safety Kamren Curl popped it into the air, allowing William Jackson III to come down with the interception.

The second pick, though, was surely the fault of the 44-year-old. Brady was looking for Mike Evans over the middle but totally misfired, his pass landing right in the hands of Landon Collins, whose return set up Washington just outside the Tampa Bay 30-yard line.

Bills strike first

It took fewer than three minutes for the Bills to surpass their point total from their terrible loss to the lowly Jaguars last week. Josh Allen looked like himself as he dropped back, avoided a pass rusher, rolled out and delivered a strike on the run. Matt Breida was on the receiving end, hauling in the 15-yard score to put Buffalo ahead.

Jonathan Taylor breaks another one

Jonathan Taylor is the odds-on favorite to win the NFL rushing title with the Titans' Derrick Henry sidelined, and the Colts' second-year running back is off to a solid start Sunday against the Jaguars. On his first carry, he burst through the line on his first carry for a 34-yard gain, setting up the Colts for an opening-drive field goal.

Snow, wind expected for Lions-Steelers

If the Ben Roethlisberger surprise -- he'll sit out Sunday's Lions-Steelers game after a positive COVID-19 test -- wasn't enough to make things more unpredictable in Pittsburgh, there's also this: Mason Rudolph's first start this season will come in less than ideal weather for throwing the football.

Rain and snow showers are predicted in Pittsburgh, according to weather.com, beginning right around the 1 p.m. ET kickoff and continuing throughout the game. Winds are expected to be in the 12-14 mph range during that time. Pittsburgh is a 6-point favorite at Caesars Sportsbook as kickoff approaches after starting the week at -9. You can take a look at how the Steelers offense is likely to look different with Rudolph at the helm here.
