Chase x3

Ja’Marr Chase is officially unstoppable. Six catches, 180 yards and THREE TOUCHDOWNS — the most recent being his easiest yet.

Kristian Wilkerson?

Why are we mentioning a player who entered Sunday with exactly zero career catches? That’s because the Patriots’ 2020 undrafted free agent out of Southeast Missouri State has four catches so far against the Jaguars for TWO TOUCHDOWNS. His second score was on a stop-and-go route that left him extremely wide open for the 20-yard score.

Pitts over 1,000

Kyle Pitts joined Mike Ditka as the only NFL tight ends to go over 1,000 receiving yards in their rookie seasons, and the Falcons’ first-round pick accomplished the rare feat in style. After making a catch against the Bills at the end of the first half, Pitts gained separation from his defender, issued a nasty stiff arm to another defender and then rumbled down the sideline for a 61-yard gain, setting up a crucial Falcons touchdown.

Pats ALL OVER Jags

The Patriots may not be leading the AFC East, but they’re still one of the better teams in the conference, and they’re showing that against the Jaguars. Yes, it’s the Jaguars, but the Patriots have been dominant in all phases during the first half. New England scored its four touchdown of the opening two quarters when Mac Jones found Jakobi Meyers for a four-yard score. 

Chase (again)

Who cares that he’s a rookie? Ja’Marr Chase is one of the best wide receivers in football. Just check out this latest touchdown catch — his 12th of the season.

Chase off to the races

When Ja’Marr Chase made a routine catch near the Bengals’ 40-yard line, four Chiefs were in a few yards of him. But then the Pro Bowl rookie made a defender miss, and then he darted diagonally towards the midfield logo. From there, he outran everybody for an electrifying 72-yard touchdown.

Twice is nice

Three carries, 11 yards, two touchdowns from Josh Allen, whose scamper around right end gave the Bills a 14-2 advantage in the final seconds of the first quarter.

Berrios x2

The Jets are making the Buccaneers defense look like…well, the Jets defense, driving down the field on their first two drives for touchdowns. Berrios was again the scorer, catching the quick out and tip-toeing down the right sideline and across the goal line from nine yards out.

Pick six!

Matthew Stafford thought he had Tyler Higbee open for an easy first down, while Chuck Clark thought he had an easy interception. Clark turned out to be right, jumping right in front of Higbee and returning the interception 17 yards for Stafford’s NFL leading fourth pick six of the season.

Bears in control

Two turnovers have turned into 14 Bears points in the opening seven minutes against the lowly Giants. Darnell Mooney scored the second touchdown with a soaring six-yard catch in the back of the end zone.

Safety!

Josh Allen and the Bills were set to take the field after the defense forced an opening-possession punt, but Avery Williams had different ideas. He punched the ball out of returner Marquez Stevenson’s hands, and while the Bills recovered the fumble, it came in the end zone for a safety. Great start for the Falcons.

Trick play TD! 

After Michael Carter’s 55-yard run set up the Jets inside the Buccaneers’ 15-yard line, offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur dug back into his bag of tricks on second-and-goal. Carter took the snap and pitched the ball to Braxton Berrios, who faked the pass before scampering untouched into the end zone for the score. New York up 7-0 on Tampa Bay early.

Cooper Kupp chasing 2,000 yards receiving

Through 15 games, Cooper Kupp has already had one of the most productive seasons ever by a wide receiver. He’s currently fifth all-time in single-season receptions (132) and seventh in receiving yards (1,734) to go along with 14 scores. He’s also well on his way to becoming just the fourth player since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger to win the receiving Triple Crown by leading the league in catches, yards and touchdowns.

But with two games left, Kupp is eyeing what’s been an untouchable mark: the 2,000-yard receiving club. Calvin Johnson holds the single-season receiving yards record with 1,964 in 2012, and while Kupp has the luxury of playing an additional game, going over 2,000 would still be viewed as a miraculous feat.

Kupp currently has 1,734 receiving yards (115.6 per game), meaning he would need to average 133 yards over the final two contests to reach the mark. Fortunately for Kupp, he’ll match up with the league’s worst passing defense Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens, who are giving up a whopping 280.5 yards per game. His Week 17 performance will go a long way towards determining if Kupp’s 2021 will reach an incredible mark or fall just short.
