Kansas City Chiefs at Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27:24
The Kansas City Chiefs were able to celebrate their tenth win of the season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but had to tremble about it after a spectacular first quarter in the closing stages.
The Chiefs triumphed from the start with their passing game. Tyreek Hill caught passes for 203 yards and two touchdowns in the first 15 minutes alone. The first quarter ended with 17-0. When the Chiefs were again in the opposing Redzone, Patrick Mahomes made a fumble. The Buccaneers used the right of attack to close the gap with a touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Ronald Jones. The break was at 20: 7.
With their first drive of the second half, the Buccaneers shortened to 20:10 with a field goal. After that, however, Kansas City’s offensive machinery continued. Patrick Mahomes ran the longest run of the game with 17 yards and finally served Hill (269 yards, 3 TD) with another touchdown pass – 27:10 for the Chiefs.
Brady put his team in a good position on the field with a 44-yard pass in the following drive, but threw a completely unnecessary interception on the next move. It was similar in the next attack from Tampa Bay. This time it was Jones who made a good field position with a 34-yard run. Then Brady made the second interception. Curious: his throw hit the helmet of an opponent and could be intercepted by tyrant Mathieu.
At the start of the fourth quarter, Tampa Bay put everything on one card and played the fourth try. With success: Brady threw a 31-yard touchdown pass at Mike Evans. The Buccaneers’ next drive also led into the end zone. 4:10 minutes before the end of the game, the Buccaneers were up to 27:24. The Chiefs offense did not return the ball, however, and let the clock run down.
Mahomes won the duel between the two quarterback with 462 passing yards and three touchdown passes. Brady threw for 345 yards and three touchdowns, but he also made the two mentioned misses.
San Francisco 49ers at Los Angeles Rams 23:20
High tension in Los Angeles: kicker Robbie Gould shot the San Francisco 49ers to victory with a 42-yard field goal while the music box was running out. Backup quarterback Nick Mullens threw for 253 yards and an interception. Raheem Mostert had the only touchdown of the 49ers offense. On defense, Kerry Hyder had two sacks to book.
Jared Goff, the Rams playmaker, acted unusually flawed. His 198 passing yards are faced with three turnovers (2 interceptions, 1 fumble). One of his bad passes was carried back into the end zone by Javon Kinlaw.
New Orleans Saints at Denver Broncos 31:3
This game should go down in history as one of the strangest games in 2020. Because no quarterback was ready for action, as Jeff Driskel was infected with Corona and the other playmakers were considered the contact person, wide receiver Kendall Hilton had to act as a passer. With little success: He only brought one of his nine attempts to pass for 13 yards to the man, but threw two interceptions. Since the running game with a total of 100 yards could not compensate for this, the Broncos had no chance.
However, the Saints’ passing game could not convince either. Taysom Hill only got 78 passing yards and threw an interception. But the running game worked: Hill ran for 44 yards and two touchdowns, Latavius Murray for 124 yards and also two touchdowns.
