Garett Wilson x2

Jets rookie Garrett Wilson is a special talent. Watch the way he digs his foot into the ground to miss a defender, then runs past the rest of the Bears defense for a long touchdown — his second of the first half.

Henry did most of the work on the Titans’ first touchdown of the afternoon, but Tennessee wouldn’t have scored without Treylon Burks. It was a one-on-one play from the rookie wide receiver, who recovered Henry’s fumble in the end zone after a 69-yard screen pass.

OOPS

Rain is definitely a factor in the Jets-Bears game. Watch what happened in New York’s tying attempt.

Starting in place of struggling Davis Mills, Kyle Allen has a shot at taking the Texans’ No. 1 quarterback job for the rest of 2022. throws like he did. in the second quarter on Sunday. Drifting into the pocket, Allen completely air-balled his short pass, which landed directly in the hands of Andrew Van Ginkel for the interception. A big return gave the Dolphins the first goal, and Jeff Wilson did the rest with the three-yard score to extend the lead to 17.

RETURN

Everyone loves a well-executed return pass. Pretend to pass, roll to the side and, at the last moment, flip the hips and throw across the court. Commanders completely fell for it, leaving MyCole Pruitt wide open for the go-ahead score.

Yes, you read that right. Two drives, 142 yards and 10 points for the Siemian-led Bears, who took the lead on a four-yard touchdown off Byron Pringle.

ULTIMATELY

One of the craziest streaks in the NFL this year has come to an end. The Panthers entered Sunday with exactly zero points in the first quarter in 11 games, but that changed against the Broncos, thanks in part to Sam Darnold making his 2022 debut. Darnold led Carolina on an 11-game drive and 71 yards that ended with the ball in the hands of DJ Moore for the five-yard touchdown – their first in the first 15 minutes this season.

Can’t be denied!

When Brian Robinson Jr. caught the pass at the Falcons 14-yard line, he had a man to beat on his way to the end zone. The Commanders rookie chose the shortest route – through the defender – as he knocked down cornerback Darren Hall and then carried another Falcon across the goal line.

Zach Wilson out, Mike White in – and the substitute-turned-starter couldn’t have imagined a better start on Sunday. White completed six of his first seven passes on the first drive for 69 yards and that short touchdown pass to Garrett Wilson.

Browns strike first (again)

If the NFL was sudden death where first touchdown wins, the Browns would be near the top of the AFC. Cleveland has now scored an opening touchdown for the third straight game, this time on an end around which speedster Anthony Schwartz took 31 yards for the score.

Obtain. Stopped. Me.

Is that Derrick Henry in a Bengals uniform? No, but Samaje Perine looked like ‘Tractorcito’ when he delivered a mean stiff arm to linebacker David Long Jr.

Rookie RBs continue to rise

If you watched the NFL’s first-ever game against Germany a few weeks ago, you know Rachaad White. The Buccaneers rookie running back made his first career start and carried the ball 22 times for 105 yards, a heap of which came on the final offensive drive to seal a win at Tampa Bay.

Arizona State’s third-round pick should also get a lot of work on Sunday. Leonard Fournette, who was RB1 all season apart from the previous game, suffered a hip injury in Germany and was ruled out for Week 12 against the Browns. The Buccaneers activated pass return Giovani Bernard from injured reserve on Saturday, but expect plenty of volume (and subsequent success) from White against Cleveland’s 24th run defense (135.1 yards allowed per game) .

White is the latest rookie to show he’s capable of running a ground attack. Let’s review the playmakers.

  • The Jets’ Breece Hall (round 2, 36th pick) was on course to win the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year before a season-ending ACL and meniscus tear.
  • Seahawks’ Kenneth Walker III (Round 2, 41st pick) is now the favorite for the award after suffering a tear since replacing the injured Rashaad Penny in Week 6.
  • Brian Robinson Jr. of the Commanders (3rd round, 98th pick), despite being shot twice during the preseason, has started five of the seven games he has played since returning from injury. He averages more than 15 runs per game.
  • Dameon Pierce of the Texans (round 4, 107th pick) was the only rookie to start the year as his team’s clear starter, and he was the only bright spot in Houston with 780 rushing yards (leading all rookies) and four total touchdowns. .
  • Isiah Pacheco of the Chiefs (round 7, 251st pick) appears to be the steal of the draft at this position. Since being named the starter in Week 7, he’s averaged nearly 5.4 yards per carry. The results have been even better the past two weeks: 31 carries and 189 yards (6.1 yards per carry).

These youngsters have been integral to their team’s success, and that’s not even including Tyler Allgeier of the Falcons, James Cook of the Bills and Kyren Williams of the Rams – who all look set to have bigger roles over the course of the season. the home stretch of the 2022 campaign. The running back position is surely in good hands.
