The postseason’s first weekend will see the third matchup between the Patriots and the Bills, and for the Cardinals and the Rams.
Kansas City and the Los Angeles Chargers will trade deep shots, Covid-19-depleted teams will do battle for playoff spots and the Patriots and Colts’ throwback matchup should deliver.
The Buccaneers will presumably throw the ball against the Bills, and Dallas and Washington will jangle the N.F.C. East order.
A rested Kyler Murray dazzled against the Bears, the Chargers went for broke to beat the Bengals, and the Lions finally won one.
Kyler Murray is healthy and has the 4-0 Arizona Cardinals leading the N.F.L. in points and yards. By a few important measures, the team looks better suited to avoid last season’s collapse.
The Packers’ offense facing the Colts’ defense highlights a weekend filled with interesting matchups.
DK Metcalf’s chase-down. DeAndre Hopkins’s catch. The division has produced some of the most memorable moments of the 2020 season, but there’s no distinguishing among its logjam of 6-3 teams.
DeAndre Hopkins pulled down a catch that will live forever, Ronald Jones II ran Tampa Bay to victory and Ben Roethlisberger was no worse for the wear after a week of no practice.
The second-year quarterback is thriving in Coach Kliff Kingsbury’s hot rod offense, leading his team to a shocking overtime win against Seattle and racking up yards on the ground and in the air.
Some great football was played Sunday. This article is about the rest of it.
