I missed the first ten minutes of the Tampa Bay game, and by the time I tuned in, it was already over. Tampa jumped up to a quick lead and kept the foot on the gas the entire game, even after benching Tom Brady and Leonard Fournette at halftime. Brady had one of his best games in years, and the main beneficiary was Mike Evans with his two touchdowns. If you started anyone on Detroit, well, I’m sorry.
In Arizona, San Francisco’s defense played well and Kyler Murray‘s Cardinals struggled to move the ball for most of the day. Playcalling was an issue in this one, and Murray injured his leg on the last play of the game. It’s worth monitoring heading into Week 17, as the Cardnals now likely will find themselves on the outside looking in on the playoff race and may choose to sit him for the final week of the season.
Finally, the game of the day was in Las Vegas, where they and the Miami Dolphins exchanged leads three times in the final five minutes of the game. It was a wild, exciting finish to a day of otherwise mediocre football.
