Find out which team would remain undefeated in the first Tuesday Night Football game of the year.





Chris Ransom Last Updated: October 13, 2020.




Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-2-0
Versus
Chicago Bears 4-1-0


Game Recap: CHICAGO-I expected a defensive game between these two teams. That's exactly what we got.


Tampa Bay ran for a first down which put the Buccaneers in field goal range. Roquan Smith dropped back into coverage and made a great tackle on third down to force an incompletion. He was not penalized and Tampa Bay had to kick a field goal. Tampa Bay had an 11-play 64-yard drive that took up 5 minutes and 12 seconds.


Chicago held Tampa Bay to a three and out after their offense could not do anything on the first series. Nick Foles threw a 29-yard pass to Allen Robinson. Foles got to the Tampa Bay 49-yard line before he threw an interception to Carlton Davis.


Tom Brady threw a 35-yard pass to rookie wide receiver Tyler Johnson out of Minnesota. Tom Brady also threw a completion to Ronald Jones. He capped off the drive with a touchdown pass to Mike Evans. Tampa Bay led 10-0 after one quarter of play.


Tampa Bay put together a 13-play 52-yard drive from their own 10-yard line that took up 6 minutes and 56 seconds. Tampa Bay got a field goal on this drive and took 13-0 lead.


Chicago put together a 10-play 70-yard drive that took up 5 minutes and 15 seconds. David Montgomery got a rushing touchdown. Tampa Bay led 13-7.


Kyle Fuller forced a fumble. Robert Quinn recovered the fumble. Nick Foles threw a touchdown pass to tight end Jimmy Graham. Chicago led 14-13 at halftime.


Chicago got the ball to start the second half. Tampa Bay's defense held Nick Foles to a three and out. Tampa Bay got a field goal on their first drive of the second half. Tampa Bay led 16-14.


Chicago had 12-play 45-yard drive that took up 7 minutes and 13 seconds. They began the drive with 2 minutes and 47 seconds left in the third quarter. They took this drive into the fourth quarter. Tampa Bay led 16-14 after three quarters. Chicago would score on a field goal on this drive. Chicago led 17-16 with 10:38 left in the game.


Tampa Bay had a 10-play 56-yard drive that took up 5 minutes and 45 seconds. Tom Brady threw a 23-yard pass to Rob Gronkowski. Khalil Mack sacked Tom Brady on a first and ten where Tampa Bay had the ball at the Chicago 16-yard line. Brady threw an incompletion on second down. Brady threw a 16-yard pass on third and seventeen. Tampa Bay kicked a field goal. Tampa Bay led 19-17 with 4:52 left in the game.


Chicago punted. Luckily their defense held Tampa Bay to a three and out. That gave this offense one more chance.


Nick Foles threw a third down conversion to Anthony Miller. Foles threw another big completion to David Montgomery. That set up a field goal opportunity. Chicago led 20-19.


Tampa Bay had one more chance to win. Brady began this drive with a 12-yard completion to Mike Evans. Chicago's defense stepped up the rest of the way. Chicago won 20-19.


Khalil Mack at 3-4 right outside linebacker was my player of the game as he won blocks against both left tackle Donovan Smith and right tackle Tristan Wirfs. Robert Quinn at 3-4 left outside linebacker recovered a fumble so he deserves an honorable mention too. Roquan Smith at 3-4 middle linebacker had 6 solo tackles, 1 assisted tackle, 7 total tackles, 2 deflections from pass breakups, and 1 tackle for a loss. Smith was consistent statistically in terms of making plays, but he also gave up some big runs to Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones who had 17 carries for 106 rushing yards despite being held out of the end zone which is why Mack got player of the game honors.




Los Angeles Rams 4-1-0
Versus
Washington Football Team 1-3-0


Game Recap: WASHINGTON-Kyle Allen would start this game. Dwayne Haskins got benched and had a stomach flu so he didn't even show up to this game.

Aaron Donald was my player of the game for the Los Angeles Rams. Aaron Donald dominated at 3-4 right end with 4 solo tackles, 4 sacks, and 3 tackles for a loss.

This game was tied 24-24 at halftime because Kansas City had 6 penalties for 64 yards, Kansas City would be ahead 35-24 if it was not for careless penalties by this offense.


Derek Carr threw a tipped pass on third down. Great three and out stop by Kansas City early in the third quarter. Nick Kwiatkowski knocks the blocker out of the way. That made it easier for the Las Vegas Raiders to make a third down stop holding the Chiefs to a three and out.


Neither team scored in the third quarter. This game was tied 24-24 heading into the fourth quarter.


Josh Jacobs got a rushing touchdown. Las Vegas put together a 13-play 71-yard drive that lasted 8 minutes and 1 second bridging the third and fourth quarters. Las Vegas missed the extra point. Las Vegas led 30-24.


Las Vegas took up some more clock. They had to settle for a field goal and led 33-24. Las Vegas was 7/13 on third down conversions. Kansas City was 6/13 on third down conversions. Mahomes extends the third down despite poor pass protection. Trayvon Mullen, the 2019 draft pick out of Clemson blankets Travis Kelce on that critical third down. Jeff Heath sealed Kansas City's fate with an interception on fourth down. Las Vegas won 40-32 after taking a 40-24 lead.


Derek Carr was my player of the game. Derek Carr went 22/31 with 347 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, and 1 interception. Derek Carr outplayed Patrick Mahomes, as Mahomes lost his first AFC West game as quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs.




Jacksonville Jaguars 1-4-0
Versus
Houston Texans 1-4-0


Game Recap: HOUSTON-Jacksonville headed to Houston feeling pretty confident since Houston has 0 interceptions on the season. Romeo Crennell took over for Bill O'Brien as interim head coach.


James Robinson had a nice run, Robinson was my Mr. Irrelevant in my 2020 NFL Mock Draft, had the Giants taken him, he'd be starting in New York. Instead Jacksonville got an undrafted rookie as a starter.


Houston kept Jacksonville from scoring. Deshaun Watson with a big play to Brandin Cooks. Deshaun Watson threw a first down to Darren Fells after scrambling out of the pocket. This game remained scoreless after one quarter of play.


Deshaun Watson threw a screen pass to running back David Johnson on third down. David Johnson could not stay on his feet. Houston settled for a field goal and led 3-0.


Gardner Minshew II ran for a first down. Minshew threw a first down to Tyler Eifert as his dad was spotted in NRG Stadium. Third string tight end James O'Shaugnnessy who is filling in for an injured backup tight end in Josh Oliver had a false start penalty. He had a holding penalty last week in Cincinnati.


James Robinson caught a screen pass. Minshew went back to Robinson.


Gardner Minshew went to Keilan Cole. Cole picked apart Phillip Gaines, who got extended despite being a Free Agent. The fact that the Texans extended Gaines amazes me since I've never thought much of Gaines to begin with.


Deshaun Watson threw a touchdown pass to Darren Fells. Houston scores thanks to a quick read by Watson along with good pass protection. Fells carves Joe Schobert and these Jacksonville safeties. Houston led 10-7.


Gardner Minshew got great pass protection on this play, but chose to throw on the run. Collin Johnson, the other rookie receiver out of Texas makes a critical first down to move the chains. Laviska Shenault Jr. and Collin Johnson showed they can contribute and make plays.


Houston made a defensive stop. Jacksonville opted to settle for the field goal on fourth and goal. Steven Hauschka missed the field goal. Houston kept their 10-7 lead.


Sidney Jones, the former Philadelphia Eagles cornerback out of Washington intercepted Deshaun Watson. Jacksonville would get a chance to capitalize.


Gardner Minshew got good pass protection and attempted to take a shot at the end zone. Bernardrick McKinney displayed good zone coverage on this deep throw, and former Stanford safety Justin Reid, the Texans 2018 third round pick, who I had a second round grade on made a superb hit on Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tyler Eifert to prevent a Jacksonville touchdown.


Gardner Minshew overthrew Collin Johnson, but Johnson still made the catch out of bounds. It didn't count though because Johnson was out of bounds. Right tackle Jawaan Taylor, who had 15 penalties as a rookie despite being the first offensive tackle to start all 16 games since 1998 at offensive tackle, finally had his first penalty of the season. Steven Hauschka missed another field goal as he was 0/2 on field goals in the first half. Houston led 10-7 at halftime.


Houston got the ball to start the second half. Houston got a field goal and took a 13-7 lead.


Gardner Minshew lines up as a wide receiver on fourth and one. James Robinson coughs up the football as Jacksonville goes for it on fourth and one having no confidence in their kicker only to cough up the football. J.J. Watt recovered the fumble. Scott Hanson said, "That's the first turnover the Texans forced all season." The only thing I dislike about this quote is that nobody stripped the ball from Robinson, so I wouldn't necessarily say that was the first turnover the Texans forced, but rather the first turnover the Texans capitalized off of.


Deshaun Watson picked apart Joe Schobert in coverage again as he threw the ball to Brandin Cooks. Cooks got a first down for Houston. Houston led 13-7 after three quarters of play.


Deshaun Watson threw a pass to Will Fuller that looked like an incompletion. It ended up being a touchdown despite the poor pass protection from backup left guard Senio Kelemete, who is rotating left guard snaps with starter Max Scharping, who showed a lot of promise as a rookie coming out of Northern Illinois. Houston took a 20-7 lead following the Will Fuller touchdown where Fuller just exposed how mediocre Tre Herndon really is.


Vernon Hargreaves III broke up a pass on third and goal to prevent Jacksonville from getting a touchdown. Gardnew Minshew II threw a touchdown to Collin Johnson as he threw on the run. Houston led 20-14 after Jacksonville stepped up with a huge fourth down conversion.


Deshaun Watson threw a first down to Brandin Cooks. That first down put Houston in field goal range. Houston got a field goal. Houston led 23-14.


Houston got another touchdown. Houston won 30-14.


Wide receiver Brandin Cooks was my player of the game with 8 receptions, 161 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. Wide receiver Will Fuller also did well with 4 receptions, 58 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. Darren Fells caught both of his 2 targets for 57 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. Watson threw a couple of picks, but his playmakers did enough to help him win with Cooks being the star who stepped up for Houston.





Cincinnati Bengals 1-3-1
Versus
Baltimore Ravens 4-1-0


Game Recap: BALTIMORE-A number one pick named Joe Burrow in the 2020 NFL Draft headed to Baltimore. He'd face the 2019 NFL MVP in Lamar Jackson.


Cincinnati got the ball. Joe Burrow began the drive with a first down to tight end Drew Sample. Baltimore adjusted and did not allow a first down for the rest of the drive. Cornerback Jimmy Smith sacked Joe Burrow on third down to make a defensive stop.


Lamar Jackson fackes a handoff to Mark Ingram. Devin Duvernay with a 42-yard run. Cincinnati had a healthy Geno Atkins and a healthy D.J. Reader at defensive tackle complimenting their defensive end duo of Sam Hubbard and Carlos Dunlap. Baltimore's offensive line gave Lamar Jackson enough time on third down to throw to a wide open Mark Andrews. Jessie Bates III made an incredible deflection as he anticipated the football and timed that pass breakup perfectly on third down to force kicker Justin Tucker to settle for a 46-yard field goal. Baltimore led 3-0.


Joe Burrow was looking for Tyler Boyd. Marlon Humphrey tackled Boyd and Burrow waited for Boyd to get separation before getting rid of the football. Burrow attempted to scramble on third down, but was stopped. Burrow went back to Boyd on fourth down, but Marcus Peters blanketed Boyd in man coverage, but to Boyd's defense, Burrow overthrew Boyd on that fourth down attempt. These Ravens cornerback know how to cover, and I wish Burrow would go through six progressions like he did at LSU instead of just being dependant on Boyd. That's something Burrow struggled with in this game.


Lamar Jackson nearly threw a pick in the first quarter. That was a great pressure by Cincinnati.


Lamar Jackson threw a first down to tight end Mark Andrews on third down. This was Baltimore's third third down conversion on their second drive of this game. Lamar Jackson went back to Mark Andrews on third down. Lamar Jackson went 4/4 on third down conversions on Baltimore's second drive in this game. Lamar took a timeout because he did not like what he saw in that first and goal situation. Lamar was in another third and goal situation and he went back to Mark Andrews as Lamar went 5/5 on third down conversions this drive with Mark Andrews getting a hat trick of first downs with three consecutive third down conversions for Baltimore before giving the Ravens a 10-0 lead with that receiving touchdown on a 15-play 62-yard drive from their own 38-yard line that took up 7 minutes and 19 seconds.


Mark Andrews made another big catch to end the first quarter to make it first and goal for Baltimore. Baltimore led 10-0 after one quarter of play. Cincinnati looked very sloppy in the first quarter, one week after getting their first win of the season.


Lamar Jackson threw a touchdown pass to Marques Brown the 2019 first round pick and first receiver drafted in 2019 out of Oklahoma. Baltimore led 17-0.


Patrick Queen blasts Joe Burrow at LSU. Queen blasts Burrow and forces the fumble and Baltimore recovered the football on that third down.


Jessie Bates III, broke up another pass that would have been a touchdown for Baltimore. His two deflections kept Baltimore from routing the Cincinnati Bengals. Logan Wilson got his first interception against Philadelphia back in week 3, and he got a second interception of his rookie season in this game. Baltimore led 17-0 at halftime.


Lamar Jackson threw a first down to Marques Brown. That would result in a first down for Baltimore. Lamar Jackson used his speed to knock Jerome Boger on the ground. Boger just laughed it off after Lamar Jackson threw an incomplete pass. Baltimore got a field goal in the third quarter. Baltimore led 20-0 after three quarters of play.


Baltimore got a touchdown and led 27-0. Baltimore won this game 27-3.


Patrick Queen, the 3-4 middle linebacker, and the Baltimore Ravens 2020 first round pick out of LSU was my player of the game. Patrick Queen had 6 solo tackles, 3 assisted tackles, 9 total tackles, and 1 sack while limiting Joe Mixon to 24 carries for 59 rushing yards, 35 receiving yards, and 94 total yards. Queen also kept Mixon out of the end zone which is another bonus for Baltimore. As long as Queen balls out like this against AFC North running backs, Baltimore will remain the team to beat in the AFC North Division.


Lamar Jackson is now 8-1 in the AFC North. That lone defeat was the week 4 loss to Cleveland back in 2019. Patrick Queen is the MVP of this game despite Lamar Jackson improving his record against AFC North opponents.




Carolina Panthers 3-2-0
Versus
Atlanta Falcons 0-5-0

Teddy Bridgewater attempted to scramble on third and six. Atlanta made a third down stop defensively. Carolina got a field goal. Atlanta led 7-6.


Teddy Bridgewater got this third down conversion. He threw it to his go-to-guy D.J. Moore. The 2018 first round pick out of Maryland torched the 2018 second round pick out of Colorado. Isaiah Oliver has gave up at least 4 touchdowns this year and at least one touchdown in each of Atlanta's first four home games. Oliver lost the boundary cornerback job when he complimented Desmond Trufant, and got demoted to nickel cornerback only to give up another touchdown to Carolina. Moore ran a 4.35 40-time at the 2018 NFL Combine and Oliver ran a 4.50 40-time. Carolina led 13-7.


Teddy Bridgewater threw a touchdown pass to Mike Davis. Carolina led 20-7 at halftime.

Carolina is now 3-0 without Christian McCaffrey. Teddy Bridgewater went 27/37 with 313 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. Carolina is 3-2 and is tied with Tampa Bay for first place, but New Orleans could have something to say about the NFC South with a win on Monday Night.





Miami Dolphins 2-3-0
Versus
San Francisco 49ers 2-3-0


Game Recap: SAN FRANCISCO-Jimmy Garoppolo returned to San Francisco for this game. You'd expect San Francisco to route Miami right?


Miami had Christian Wilkins and Emmanuel Ogbah at 3-4 defensive end with Davon Godchaux at nose tackle. Elandon Roberts and Jerome Baker are great 3-4 middle linebackers even with Raekwon McMillan out for the year. Andrew Van Ginkel at 3-4 right outside linebacker compliments Kyle Van Noy at 3-4 left outside linebacker. The secondary with Xavien Howard at field cornerback, Byron Jones at boundary cornerback, Eric Rowe at strong safety, and Bobby McCain at free safety is quite a formidable group.


Jimmy Garoppolo had his first third down conversion attempt with 14 minutes left in the first quarter. Garoppolo could not convert. Andrew Van Ginkel did a fantastic job winning the one-on-one battle with San Francisco 49ers left tackle Trent Williams on that third down.


Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a deep shot to Preston Williams. That completion put Miami in field goal range early. Great 47-yard completion from Fitzpatrick to Williams. Williams carved Akhello Witherspoon on that play.


Ryan Fitzpatrick capped off the drive with a touchdown pass to Adam Shaheen the former Chicago Bear. If Shaheen and Gesicki keep pushing each other, then there is no reason for me to mock a tight end to Miami in the first round. Great first drive by Ryan Fitzpatrick as he began this game 3/4 with 65 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, and no interceptions. Kwon Alexander missed the tackle on the Adam Shaheen touchdown.


Jimmy Garoppolo completed a pass to Brandon Aiyuk on his next drive. That completion resulted in a 15-yard gain. San Francisco went for it on fourth and one at the Miami 44-yard line. They failed to get the first down as Miami's guys on 5-technique stepped up with Wilkins and Ogbah winning the one-on-one battles against San Francisco's guards. San Francisco was 0/3 on fourth down this season prior to this stop. San Francisco is now 0/4 on fourth down attempts in 2020 following this stop.


Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a 28-yard pass to DeVante Parker for a first down. This drive ended with Myles Gaskin scoring a rushing touchdown. Miami led 14-0 after one quarter of play.


San Francisco's fullback scored a rushing touchdown. Kyle Juszczyk plowed it into the end zone. This was San Francisco's only score of the first half.


Ryan Fitzpatrick led Miami on a 7-play 71-yard drive that took up 4 minutes and 38 seconds. Miami had three consecutive first downs to begin this drive. Fitzpatrick threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to DeVante Parker to give Miami a 21-7 lead to cap off this drive.


Miami made another defensive stop. Ryan Fitzpatrick struggled on third down with an inaccurate pass. Miami settled for the field goal. Miami led 24-7.


Jimmy Garoppolo capped off the first half with a couple of interceptions to free safety Bobby McCain and field cornerback Xavien Howard. Miami got two field goals off of both of those interceptions. Miami led 30-7 at halftime.


Jimmy Garopolo was benched after going 7/17 with 77 passing yards, 0 passing touchdowns, and 2 interceptions in the first half. C.J. Beathard went 9/18 with 94 passing yards, 1 passing touchdown, and no interceptions in the second half.


That didn't matter. Miami won this game 43-17.


Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was my player of the game. Ryan Fitzpatrick went 22/28 with 350 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, and no interceptions.




New York Giants 0-5-0
Versus
Dallas Cowboys 2-3-0


Game Recap: DALLAS-Dallas learned that left tackle Tyron Smith was placed on the season ending injured reserve list. Dallas already lost La'El Collins at right tackle for the season prior to the Tyron Smith injury. Starting center Joe Looney was out for the year too so Tyler Biadasz would get the start at center.


Dak Prescott headed into this game with two backup offensive tackles and a backup center. Dak Prescott threw a first down to running back Ezekiel Elliott. New York brought cover 2 expecting Prescott to throw deep. Prescott threw a short pass to Elliott. He threw another short pass to Cedrick Wilson. Dallas had four first downs on thier opening drive. Tyler Biadasz was my top ranked center in the 2020 NFL Draft, but he had a bad snap which almost led to Prescott fumbling the football. Dallas settled for a field goal and took a 3-0 lead.


Evan Engram got a touchdown on a New York Giants drive. It was a 7-play 70-yard drive that lasted 4 minutes and 27 seconds. Dak Prescott threw an interception to Kyler Fackrell for a pick 6. New York took a 14-3 lead. New York led 14-3 after one quarter of play.

Dallas got the ball at their own 21-yard line. Dallas had a 10-play drive that lasted 4 minutes and 22 seconds. Lots of things happened on this drive like Dak Prescott's 22-yard pass to CeeDee Lamb. A scramble by Dak Prescott which led to him breaking his ankle adn being placed on the injured reserve list. Andy Dalton got sacked before Ezekiel Elliott ran it in for a 12-yard rushing touchdown. Dallas led 31-23 after three quarters of play.


New York began the fourth quarter with a field goal by kicker Graham Gano. Dallas led 31-26.


Andy Dalton fumbled. Blake Martinez recovered the fumble. New York would capitalize off of the turnover with a Devonta Freman rushing touchdown and a two point conversion. New York led this game 34-31. Andy Dalton had to bounce back after two bad plays.


Dallas had an 11-play 38-yard drive that took up 6 minutes and 50 seconds. Dallas did enough to get into field goal range. Dallas tied this game at 34-34. Daniel Jones had a good completion to Darius Slayton, but that completion was the peak of the Giants final drive before Dallas made a defensive stop.


Dallas had 52 seconds to win this game and avoid sending this game into overtime. Andy Dalton began the drive with the ball on the Dallas 12-yard line. His first throw was an incompletion to CeeDee Lamb.


Dallas had 48 seconds left. Andy Dalton had a 15-yard completion to Amari Cooper. Dalton had 40 seconds left and topped that with a 19-yard completion to Michael Gallup. Dallas had 31 seconds left, Dalton went back to Gallup with a 38-yard completion. Dallas kicked a field goal with three seconds left. Dallas won 37-34.


New York led throughout this game. They had three backups on the offensive line and a backup quarterback to deal with and still lost. Daniel Jones extends his turnover streak despite making good decisions and avoiding interceptions thanks to the fumble. If Daniel Jones didn't fumble the ball, both of these teams would be 1-4.


Jaylon Smith, the 4-3 right outside linebacker on the Dallas Cowboys was my player of the game. Jaylon Smith had 7 solo tackles, 7 assisted tackles, 14 total tackles, 3 tackles for a loss, a 0.5 sack, and limited Devonta Freeman to 60 rushing yards. Smith led a Dallas front 7 that limited the Giants entire backfield to 89 rushing yards on 27 carries.





Indianapolis Colts 3-1-0
Versus
Cleveland Browns 3-1-0


Game Recap: CLEVELAND-Anthony Costanzo was out for this game at left tackle. Myles Garrett had Braden Smith at right tackle and a backup left tackle in Le'Raven Clark as his opponents in the trenches. The former number one overall pick coming out of Texas A&M was licking his chops knowing things would be easier.

Philip Rivers threw a 36-yard completion to Marcus Johnson. Right guard Mark Glowinski and right tackle Braden Smith double teammed Myles Garrett. Garrett rebounded and got by Le'Raven Clark only to sack Rivers on that first down to set up a second and thirteen situation. Rivers attempted a third down pass to Nyheim Hines.


Jonathan Taylor runs to the left. Cleveland was expecting Taylor to run to the middle or run to the right. Taylor had his third rushing touchdown of the year. Indianapolis led 7-3.


Anthony Walker, the former Northwestern middle linebacker tackled Kareem Hunt. Walker didn't do much in his first three years in the Colts. He has balled out in 2020 in his contract year since he knows he can get a payday with a big season.


Baker Mayfield threw a first down to Jarvis Landry. Bobby Okereke did a great job in coverage in terms of zone coverage. That was just an incredbile catch by Landry to move the chains. Indianapolis pressured Jarvis Landry following the first down. Chris Hubbard is just awful at right tackle which is what led to Mayfield throwing it away. Hubbard did a better job blocking on that second down, but Mayfield's accuracy was off on that second down setting upa tough third and ten for the third year quarterback Baker Mayfield.


Austin Hooper had a critical third down conversion. Both teams began this game 1/2 on third down conversions. Hooper gave Cleveland life after Indianapolis took a 7-3 lead. Right guard Wyatt Teller who has been sensational this year.


Cleveland had a 8-play 68-yard drive that took up 4 minutes and 26 seconds heading into this second and nine situation.

Baker Mayfield threw a 26-yard completion to Odell Beckham Jr. Baker Mayfield had a 16-yard run. The play that capped off this Cleveland Browns 9-play 75-yard drive from their own 25-yard line was a 15-yard touchdown pass to Rashard Higgins. Cleveland took up 4 minutes and 17 seconds of play.


Once Cleveland took a 17-10 lead, their defense stepped up and held Philip Rivers to a 3 and out. Cleveland's offense responded with a 12-play 4 minute drive which resulted in a field goal. Cleveland led 20-10 at halfitme.


Third quarter, Indianapolis had the ball. Indianapolis took up 2 minutes and 45 seconds of clock on their first drive. It would end with Ronnie Harrison intercepting Rivers and getting a pick 6 for the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland led 27-10.


Indianapolis returned a kickoff for a touchdown. They got a field goal on their next drive and kept the Browns offense from getting any offensive points in the third quarter despite the pick 6. Cleveland led 27-20 heading into the fourth quarter.


An intental grounding penalty resulted in a safety. Cleveland led 29-20 and won this game 32-23.


Ronnie Harrison was my player of the game because of his pick 6. Indianapolis adjusted defensively in the second half and deserves some credit for keeping Cleveland's offense out of the end zone in the second half.




Minnesota Vikings 1-4-0
Versus
Seattle Seahawks 5-0-0


Game Recap: SEATTLE-Seattle could cease control of the NFC with a win. Seattle is 4-0 and with Green Bay on a bye week, Seattle could take over the top spot in the NFC with a win.


Seattle won this game 27-26. The most amazing thing about this game is that Minnesota led for a majority of the game. Ok that's not the most amazing thing about this game. The most amazing thing about this game was the fact that Seattle had 0 third down conversions and still prevailed by the slimmest of margains in their 27-26 victory over Minnesota.


D.K. Metcalf had 6 receptions, 93 receiving yards, and 2 receiving touchdowns in the win over Minnesota. Metcalf was my player of the game in this lackluster team win over the Vikings. Seattle is now the only 5-0 team in the NFC thanks to this win.

Buffalo Bills 4-1-0
Versus
Tennessee Titans 4-0-0


Game Recap: TENNESSEE-Whoever won this game would join the Pittsburgh Steelers as the only other AFC team without a loss heading into week 6.

DeQuan Jones made the tackle setting up a second and seven. Devin Singletary ran the football again with Jeffery Simmons on the PUp list with Jack Crawford filling in for him at 3-4 right end.

Tre'Davious White and Matt Milano were out for this game. This means A.J. Brown should have a huge night in fantasy after missing two weeks with an injury. Taylor Lewan returned at left tackle. Ryan Tannehill went straight to A.J. Brown for the touchdown.


Buffalo went to Stefon Diggs on this drive. He made a couple of nice catches on this drive. Josh Allen displayed bad accuracy on that second down throw. Only three teams have done worse on third down conversions than the Tennessee Titans. Josh Allen was 1/2 on third down conversions heading into this third and thirteen. Josh Allen threw on the run and the pass was complete to Gabriel Davis. The rookie from Central Florida with a huge first down as Buffalo improved to 2/3 on third down converisons.


Josh Allen had Diggs wide open on a play. Allen threw to another receiver and did not go through his progressions. Buffalo threw another first down on a third down conversion. Josh Allen threw a touchdown pass to Isaiah McKenzie. Buffalo had a 15-play 76-yard drive that took up 6 minutes and 43 seconds. That drive tied this game at 7-7.


Ryan Tannehill got another first down to A.J. Brown. Tannehill began the game 2/2 with 26 passing yards. A.J. Brown had 26 receiving yards including the touchdown from Tannehill to Brown earlier in the game. Buffalo made a great defensive stop as their backup defensive tackle Jefferson got by Tennessee's center on that third down rush. I'm not sure if Ben Jones or the backup gave up the block, but great stop by Buffalo.


Josh Allen was in a third and six situation on this drive. Josh Allen looked lost with Tennessee putting double coverage on Diggs. Tennessee made a defensive stop as Harold Landry had a great quarterback hurry on that third down.


Mario Addison lined up at 4-3 right end and won a one-on-one against left tackle Taylor Lewan. Trent Murphy won a one-on-one against the tight end or right tackle. That double team gave Ryan Tannehill hardly any time to throw. After gaining one yard on second down, Tennessee is in a third and nine situation. Jonnu Smith had a first down, but a flag negated the first down as Carl Cheffers, the referee in this game called offensive pass interference on Nick Westbrook-Ikhine who was filling in for an injured Corey Davis and injured Adam Humphries. Good thing A.J. Brown is back.


Everybody loves Raymond. Especially on third and nineteen when he helps the Titans convert a first down in a very difficult situation. This game was tied 7-7 after one quarter of play.


Derrick Henry ran it into the end zone. Tennessee led 14-7.


Buffalo entered another third down situation. Buffalo began this game 4/6 on third down conversions. Buffalo is now 5/7 on third down conversions after that completion from Josh Allen to Stefon Diggs. Buffalo had a chance to go 6/8, but Diggs dropped the pass on third down.
