Standing out: The Chicago Bears tried, but they couldn’t stop Atlanta Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson from setting a new NFL record yesterday. Patterson scored his ninth career kick return touchdown (TD) in the Falcons 27–24 win. Bow down.

  • Special shoutout to Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams, who has three overtime TDs, including yesterday’s game winner, and is tied with LaDainian Tomlinson for the most in NFL history.

Losing steam: Hate to say it, but it looks like New York football is cooling off. After shockingly beating the Buffalo Bills two weeks ago, the Jets lost to the New England Patriots 10–3 yesterday, their 14th straight (!!!) loss against their AFC East foe.

  • The once-hot Giants didn’t fare any better, losing 31–18 to the mediocre Detroit Lions. Not good, G-Men. Not good.

Injury report: LA Rams star quarterback Matthew Stafford left the game after being sacked and evaluated for a concussion in the third quarter of the Rams’ 27–20 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

  • What makes this extra worrisome is that Stafford was out for last week’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals also due to concussion, but was cleared to play in yesterday’s game on Friday. Sounds familiar
