NFL: In last night’s back-and-forth battle of No. 1 draft picks, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback (QB) Joe Burrow prevailed as the Bengals topped the Jacksonville Jaguars and QB Trevor Lawrence 24–21.

  • Both squads traded touchdowns (TDs) throughout the game, but Bengals kicker Evan McPherson’s game-winning field goal (his second game-winner in just four career games!) clinched Cincy’s third win of the season.

College football: Week 5 features plenty of ranked matchups, highlighted by two All-SEC battles. First, No. 8 Arkansas faces No. 2 Georgia tomorrow at 12 p.m. ET. Both squads are undefeated, thanks to massive offensive numbers and stifling defense. We’re in for a treat.

  • After that, tomorrow’s 3:30 p.m. ET game features two more undefeated teams: No. 12 Ole Miss and No. 1 Alabama. While ’Bama struggled to hold off ranked opponent Florida earlier this year, this will be the first real test for Ole Miss.
  • The Tide may be high, but we think Alabama will hold on for their 19th (!!!) consecutive win.

Fantasy: Before you tune in to Sunday Night Football to watch Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady make his long-awaited return to Foxboro to face his old team, the New England Patriots, see if you can be the GOAT of our GIST-exclusive weekly fantasy football contest.

  • Only question left is, how will you celebrate your big win? Avocado tequila, anyone?
