Bears – Seahawks

Steelers – Chiefs

Broncos – Raiders

(5:04) There was finally a score in the Broncos-Raiders game with a 10-yard touchdown pass to WR Hunter Renfrow.

The Seahawks took the lead against the Bears with a touchdown run from Rashaad Penny for three yards.

(4:52) If Patrick Mahomes had anymore time in the pocket, he would have been able to bake a cake. A pineapple upside down cake. Instead, he threw a touchdown pass to Byron Pringle to extend their lead over the Steelers 14-0.

(4:46) The Bears are inside the ten-yard line once again after an excellent punt return. On the two-yard line, Montgomery was held just short of a score. On the next play, Montgomery did get into the end zone to tie the game against the Seahawks 7-7.

Ben Roethlisberger was just picked off on a Fleaflicker play. Ew.

(4:42) The Chiefs are trying to score against the Steelers won multiple plays inside the five yard-line. Clyde Edwards-Helaire looked like he was pancaked, but he bounced out to the left for a touchdown. I could feel that hit through the television. That was over an eight-minute drive for the Chiefs who take the lead 7-0.

(4:34) The Bears are in scoring position on Seattle’s seven-yard line. The Seahawks’ defense wasn’t fooled by David Montgomery lined up in the wildcat. Nick Foles scrambled on third down but no one was home. The offense stayed on the field but the catch by Montgomery was short and the Bears turned it over on downs.

Story continues

(4:16) With all of the snow, this is likely to be a run game between the Bears and the Seahawks. Scratch that, Russell Wilson just hit D.K Metcalf for a 41-yard touchdown pass.

(4:07) Hello, snow! Seattle is getting dowsed with snow against the Bears.

(4:13) Mac Jones’ Hail Mary was intercepted and the Bills take the win over the Patriots.

(4:08) It’s fourth and goal with 12 seconds left for the Jaguars trailing 21-26. The pass was batted down but there was a flag. The penalty was an illegal shift on the Jags and the Jets will take the win.

(4:05) More garbage time points… this time, it’s from Glennon to Evan Engram for a touchdown.

(4:03) Dawson Knox just added a score for the Bills on a two-yard play. They lead the Patriots 33-21 with 2:30 left to go.

(3:53) Herbert added some garbage time points with a touchdown pass to Josh Palmer. It’s way too little too late.

(3:52) Matt Gay added three points for the Rams who lead by ten with just over two minutes to play against the Vikings.

(3:48) Glennon just threw a pick-six to the Eagles. They lead 34-3 over the Giants. Yikes. Not to be left out, Herbert just threw a pick-six. The Texans are now on top of the Chargers 41-23. That’s incredible.

(3:41) This is fun, Lane Johnson has a touchdown for the Eagles, the Lions just turned the ball over, the WR Nico Collins just scored a TD for the Texans against the Chargers.

Damien Harris may have fumbled on his third touchdown attempt. The play stands as called (touchdown) and the Patriots cut the Bills lead to 26-21.

(3:37) The Vikings are knocking on the door against the Rams after a touchdown from K.J. Osborn.

Dare Ogunbowale scored for the Jaguars and they trail 21-23.

(3:35) Higgins is having a great game for the Bengals. He scored on a ten-yard pass from burrow to extend their lead over the Ravens 41-21.

(3:25) The Jaguars’ defense held the Jets but they went for it on fourth down. Wilson scrambled and hit Conor McDermottfor a Jets TD. The Lions just kicked a field goal and then Jackson scored his second touchdown for the Chargers. Devin Singletary scored on a two-yard rush but the two-point conversion was no good. Herbert completed his two-point conversion to Jared Cook (two-point game there) then Stafford hit Odell Beckham for a Rams’ touchdown

Wow. Lots and lots of things at one time.

(3:21) Johnson just hit TE Mark Andrews for a Ravens touchdown, but there was a flag. It was a defensive holding so the touchdown will stick.

(3:16) There we go! Ronald Jones just scored for the Buccaneers on a seven-yard run. They have a commanding lead over the Panthers at 29-6.

Eagles WR Quez Watkins just made a 39-yard catch to put Philadelphia in scoring position. DeVonta Smith made an excellent catch for a four-yard touchdown. However, the play is under review.

Houston is straight embarrassing the Chargers with a 24-15 lead and getting ready to score again with nine minutes left to play in the game. On fourth down, the Texans kicked a field goal to extend their lead to 12 points.

(3:14) Damien Harris just scored his second touchdown for the Patriots. They trail the Bills 14-20.

(3:11) Hayden Hurst got the touchdown for the Falcons instead of Kyle Pitts who got them into scoring position.

(3:08) The Giants have put Mike Glennon in at QB over Fromm.

(3:03) Rams just scored a touchdown on a big special teams play, which helps no one unless you have the Rams DST. Brandon Powell just ran back a punt return for 61 yards a touchdown. They take the lead 20-10.

Elliott just kicked another good field goal. The Eagles lead 13-3.

(2:58) Trevor Lawrence just fumbled and the Jets take over in the red zone. So many things are happening at one time right now.

The Lions just kicked a field goal to tie the Falcons 13-13.

There are three teams in the red zone (Buccaneers, Jets, and Bills). The jets faked the field goal to get the first down but it was short and they turn it over on downs. The Bills kicked a field goal with Tyler Bass and Tom Brady just called a time out.

Phew!

(2:55) Boston Scott finished the job for the Eagles with a short touchdown.

A Dawson Knox touchdown was just taken off the board due to a penalty on the Bills.

INJURY UPDATE: Miles Sanders is OUT with a hand injury.

(2:52) Jake Fromm (State Farm… sorry, I had to) was picked off by the Eagles and they nearly had a pick-six. The touchdown was called back on a penalty but the Eagles are in scoring position.

(2:50) The Jets just kicked a field goal to take the lead over the Jaguars. Alexander Mattison just scored after Stafford just turned the ball over in the red zone for his third interception. The Chargers had to settle for a field goal after they could not convert. Yuck.

(2:49) Semifinals are stressful enough, but so far, this has been brutal for fantasy. Let’s hope that our studs make some much-needed halftime adjustments.

(2:30) Oh no… Burrow was just picked off in the end zone after the call stood. Flag! There was a defensive holding penalty (a questionable one, at that) and the Bengals will get another try and a fresh set of downs from the two-yard line. Burrow found Higgins for a one-yard touchdown.

(2:25) The Eagles brought Elliott back out and this time his kick was good to tie the game.

Wilson has been using his legs to get things done for the Jets. He scrambled 17 yards to keep the drive alive for the Jets.

Oh boy… there is some drama in Cincinnati. Did Tee Higgins make the 42-yard catch from Burrow? HC John Harbaughcalled a timeout before the Bengals could snap the ball to make sure the play was able to be reviewed.

(2:18) We had three touchdowns at the same time. Devonta Freeman rushed in a short-yardage touchdown for the Ravens, Diggs just scored on a 12-yard pass for the Bills, and Cameron Brate scored on a four-yard pass for the Buccaneers.

Oh, let’s add another one. Chris Conley just scored on a 41-yard pass from Davis Mills for the Texans. They lead the Chargers 17-12.

(2:12) The Bills managed to get the Patriots to jump to set up Tyler Bass for a better field goal position. However, the Bills go for it on fourth down and two yards. Allen connected with Diggs for a first down and they will continue their drive after the two-minute warning.

(2:09) The Giants-Eagles game is less than exciting. The Giants lead 3-0 and the Eagles’ kicker, Jake Elliot, just missed a field goal that would have tied the game.

Also, Mixon added another touchdown for the Bengals on a pass from Burrow. They lead the Ravens 24-7.

(2:05) Justin Herbert just threw an interception on a long pass and then Matthew Stafford just threw an interception. Ouch.

(2:03) Despite the field position, the Bills could not convert and turned it over on downs in the red zone to the Patriots.

(1:59) Despite no Jared Goff, Amon-Ra St. Brown just scored for the Lions after a trick play on special teams kept the Lions on offense. The Lions lead the Falcons 10-7 with 3:44 left to go in the first half.

Mac Jones was just picked off after his pass was tipped and the Bills are in scoring position.

(1:55) The Rams added a field goal to their score to lead the Vikings 10-0.

(1:52) Sam Darnold came into the game for the Panthers and the crowd booed him. Darnold shrugged off the jeers and hit Shi Smith on a 63-yard game. HC Matt Rhule then put Newton back in the game. Odd.

(1:48) Tyler Boyd! Wow! He just scored on a 68-yard play for the Bengals. That whole drive was two plays for 71 yards and a touchdown.

What is this… big-play hour? Braxton Berrios just returned a kick-off over 100 yards for a Jets touchdown. What is happening right now? Holy cow!

(1:45) With Austin Ekeler on COVID-19 reserve, Justin Jackson rushed in a 17-yard touchdown for the Chargers. They took the lead over the Texans 12-7.

(1:40) The Jaguars just scored on a forward fumble. Of course, they did.

INJURY UPDATE: James Robinson is out for the remainder of the game with an apparent Achilles injury.

(1:34) Ja’Marr Chase just hauled in a big catch from Joe Burrow to set up the Bengals in scoring position while Damien Harris busted off a big run for the Patriots. On the next play, Harris took it to the house and the Patriots tied it up with the Bills at 7-7.

Joe Mixon carried the ball for the Bengals to the two-yard line. The Ravens defense held strong and forced the Bengals to go for it on fourth down. Mixon barreled his way through the defense to finally score.

Cam was picked off in the Buccaneers’ territories and Tampa Bay took over at mid-field.

(1:33) Kirk Cousins was just intercepted in the end zone by the Rams.

(1:26) Zach Wilson! Wow! He just had a huge run for the Jets for a 52-yard gain. Meanwhile, Ke’Shawn Vaughn scored for the Buccaneers, much to the chagrin of the Ronald Jones managers.

(1:21) Oh wow! Josh Johnson got the start for the Ravens at QB and he just threw a laser to Rashod Bateman for a touchdown against the Bengals.

(1:16) The Bills went for it on fourth down and Allen found Isaiah McKenzie in the end zone. There is bad blood between the Bills and the Patriots so moving ahead by seven is a good start for Buffalo.

Sony Michel just ran in a one-yard touchdown for the Rams against the Vikings and then Royce Freeman (of all people) nearly scored a touchdown but it was called back on a penalty. Rex Burkhead finished the job for Houston to put seven on the board against the Chargers.

The Lions kicked a field goal to start their scoring against the Falcons 3-0.

(1:14) Cam Newton just rushed for a 30-yard gain for the Panthers and the Bills were just about to score but Allen’s pass went right off of Stefon Diggs’ fingertips on third down.

(1:10) The Chargers are the first to draw blood for our Sunday slate of games with a field goal. I should also mention that Jalen Hurts has already turned the ball over to the Giants.
