That one is over (virtually) at FedEx Field.

Kayvon Thibodeaux snow angles next to a dead Nick Foles is messed up but really funny pic.twitter.com/ZTYBzNq6os

This Philadelphia drive with Gardner Minshew now becomes very interesting.

Another look at Wentz Pick (No. 2)

You have to wonder when Taylor Heinicke will be getting ready.

TD Falcons! ATL 7-3 AZ
18:32

Wow. MIA going for it on 4th & 1 from their own 34?! 

It looked like they didn’t get it but that’s voided by a false start, so they have to punt. 

Another lucky break for the Dolphins! Wait, no MIA go for it on 4th & 1 again somehow. And they convert. Madness.

Bears add a FG! CHI 10-7 DET
Here’s Fields running riot

Very impressive stuff from NO.

TD LIONS! DET 7-7 CHI

The big tight end Brock Wright makes a big catch to help tie things up in Mowtown. 

Another TD for the Rutgers rookie.

A big gainer from Bucs wideout Chris Godwin goes utterly to waste as he has the ball punched out and Carolina recover up 7-0. 

TD Jags! JAX 7-0 HOU

Cleveland take over in positive territory. 

Still 0-0 in the nation’s capital, but that’s not the start WAS wanted.

Justin Fields burned DET with his legs and just a few plays later loops one to Cole Kmet for the score. 

Another road team flying.

What a start by the road team. Electric from the men in electric blue.

18:06
Huge error in Foxborough!

Miami get away with one here! Mostert fumbled which was recovered by New England but the play was ruled to be forward progress.

An ruling that can’t be challenged, so MIA keep the ball.

18:04

We’ll cover every TD and all that you need to know in every 1pm game!

Do-or-die for Bill Belichick

The Dolphins have a host of injuries but the Pats are far from completely healthy either! 

It’s all on the line in Foxborough. A loss sees NE crash out of the playoff race. 

A win? Well, they’re every chance to make it.

17:56
No Hurts, no worries?

Philly can clinch the NFC East with a win but New Orleans have plenty to play for and a win – and TB loss – brings them level atop the NFC South.

No Jalen Hurts certainly provides them an opportunity. 

Good ol’ fashioned NFC North clash

Detroit can keep its playoff hopes alive with a win over NFC North rival Chicago today.

Other teams who can clinch a playoff spot today…

MIA: Win + NYJ loss/tie 

WAS: Win + SEA, DET and GB losses

New York will clinch a playoff spot if they are to overcome a Colts team missing Jonathan Taylor and stud pass rusher Yannick Ngakoue. 

30 mins till kick off!
Let’s hope Dallas has more luck today…

The Cowboys can win the NFC East if Philadelphia lose today to New Orleans and vs. New York Giants next week. 

Dallas would also need to win at Washington to complete the feat.

We present you Cowboy @michaelirvin88 trying to lasso an eagle and it’s as great as you would expect it to be 🤣😂 pic.twitter.com/vCGSm2pRTc
