This Sunday had some interesting things happen. For example, Drew Brees didn’t start the second half for the Saints against the 49ers. As well as the Patriots beating the Ravens, 23-17.

Drew Brees didn’t play too great for the time he played. He only threw 76 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. Alvin Kamara had the only receiving touchdown for the Saints. Meanwhile, Jameis Winston replaced Drew Brees. Drew Brees was replaced due to five fractured ribs. He will likely be out for two weeks. Winston threw for 63 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Nick Mullens played a great game against the Saints. He threw for 247 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. Brandon Aiyuk had the lone receiving touchdown. Malcolm Jenkins and Patrick Robinson had the interceptions for the Saints. Despite Drew Brees throwing for fewer yards than Nick Mullens and getting injured, he led the Saints to victory. The Saints won, 27-13.

Ben Roethlisberger played a marvelous game against the Bengals, despite not practicing all week due to the COVID restriction. He threw for 333 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, and Chase Claypool all caught a touchdown pass from Roethlisberger. Chase Claypool caught two receiving touchdown passes. On the other side, Joe Burrow didn’t play as well. He threw for 213 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. Tee Higgins caught the lone receiving touchdown for Cincinnati. With Ben Roethlisberger throwing for four touchdowns, he led the Steelers to victory over the Bengals, 36-10.

Cam Newton didn’t have a decent game. He threw for 118 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. Rex Burkhead had the lone receiving touchdown for New England. On the Ravens side of things, Lamar Jackson played better than Cam Newton. He threw for 249 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Willie Snead IV caught both of the receiving touchdowns for the Patriots. J.C Jackson had the lone interception for the Patriots. With Cam Newton throwing for fewer yards and throwing an interception, he led the Patriots to victory.

Next week will decide more of the playoff seeding. For example, the Chiefs play the Raiders Sunday night. This game could help Kansas City gain more ground on the AFC West. It also will determine how good Vegas is. The Cardinals play the Seahawks. This game will help determine first place in the NFC West. The Saints play the Falcons. This game could determine how good Atlanta is against one of the best teams in football.
