Buffalo Turnover Party

The Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts are the current betting favorites to climb out of their respective divisions and are among the most popular bets to win the AFC in 2022. That said, they didn’t exactly look like juggernauts in the first half. of their pre-season. opener. This exhibition quickly turned into a turnover party. In the first two quarters, there were a total of six turnovers, including one in four straight round trips in the second quarter.

After stopping a four-and-four attempt by the Colts, the quarterback Keenum case was stripped near midfield. Just six games later, Indy signal-caller Nick Foles was stripped with Buffalo’s Terrel Bernard retrieve the loose ball and return it 69 yards for the touchdown.

On the very next drive following that score, Foles’ throw was intercepted. A play later, the undercarriage continued to huff as Keenum was picked in the red zone.

by Sam Howell stunning late rally

Carson Wentz and Taylor Heinicke didn’t do much at quarterback for the Commanders, but their third quarterback in rookie Sam Howell impressed. It took him just five completions to become Washington’s leading passer against the hometown Panthers, and then he recorded that impressive 17-yard rushing touchdown.

Don’t be caught off guard by Howell’s legs. He ran in 11 scores for the Tar Heels last year.

After Carolina made three outs on the next possession, Howell took the field again – looking to at least tie the game midway through the fourth quarter. The Tower led a 13-play, 67-yard drive that was capped off with his second rushing touchdown of the game. Howell then struck Alex Erickson for the two-point conversion to take the lead, and fans at FedEx Field went nuts.

siemian splatter games

Justin Fields’ new mentor leads a comeback in Chicago. Once trailing 14-0, Bears scored 16 unanswered thanks to backup quarterback Trevor Siemian. Chicago don’t act like it’s a pre-season gameas the attack came in fourth and second, and Siemian found a streak Dante Pettis down the field.

Three games later, Siemian strikes Dazz Newsome on a nice throw in the corner of the end zone to shoot within a point of the Chiefs.

Security Justin Reid throws XP for bosses

Harrison Butker isn’t the only good kicker on the Chiefs’ roster, as one of their safeties also has a talented leg. Reid kicked 65 yard field goal in training camp last week and got a chance to score an extra point in Week 1 of the preseason. It was perfect.

RB rookie Brian Robinson shines for COs

It looks like the Alabama rookie is set to take a few touches from Antonio Gibson in 2022. Robinson rushed for 26 yards on his first six carries and also caught two passes for 15 yards earlier. Robinson also recorded part of the Commander’s history, as he scored Washington’s first touchdown of the new era.

Tajae Sharpe a candidate “taken from the pre-season”

Sharpe is fighting for playing time among the Bears’ wide receivers, and this hold will certainly help his case. He used athleticism, focus and sideline awareness to pack this one. New to the Bears, Sharpe spent the last year with the Falcons. He caught 25 passes for 230 yards in 15 games played.

Sam Darnold with an impressive TD throw

The Panthers are all over the commanders early, and Antonio Gibson helped his opponent’s cause by fumbling on his own 28-yard line. Darnold replaced Mayfield Baker at quarterback for Carolina’s second series, and three games in the drive, he connected with Rashard Higgins for an eight-yard touchdown.

That’s a pretty impressive throw, like Darnold did Climb Sweatshirt in his face, but led his wide perfectly while throwing his back foot.

The NFL the world is a little nervous for the sophomore Fields, as he’s been tasked with finding success behind a dodgy offensive line and with a wide, low-lying receiving body. Fields still has Mooney, however, who is fresh off a career campaign in which he caught 81 passes for 1,055 yards and four touchdowns.

Check out this throw and catch that lasted 26 yards:

Chiefs waste no time scoring first TD Saturday

Now that’s enough. We can take Patrick Mahomes offside. He’s still good at football. The former NFL Most Valuable Player led an 11-play, 72-yard drive that included a few highlight plays, and was capped off with a five-yard touchdown pass to Blake Bell.

Watson is awaiting a potential penalty increase from the NFL – which should increase his six-game suspension to something more meaningful – but he took the field for the Browns’ first preseason game of the new year against the Jaguars . Watson certainly looked like someone playing their first game in 568 dayswhile he finished with just seven passing yards on 1 of 5 passes.

In positive news for the Browns, backup QB Joshua Dobbs looked good, completing 10 of 13 passes for 108 yards and a touchdown.

From Friday: Ridder’s winning pass

The Lions-Falcons preseason game didn’t have to be so entertaining. The new ATL QB, Marcus Mariota, looked great, as did rookie Desmond Ridder. Fourth and 9 dropped three points with less than two minutes left, Ridder found Jared Bernhardt for the winning score.

Not only was this play good to see from a rookie quarterback, but the player who received the touchdown also deserves some credit. Bernhardt is a former Maryland lacrosse star and the winner of the 2021 Tewaaraton Award — which is given to the top college lacrosse player. Not only was Bernhardt a lax legend at an elite school, but he later transferred to Ferris State to play football and led the program to an undefeated record and their first Division II national championship as a quarterback- back. Now he’s caught an NFL game-winning touchdown. What a story.
