Sunday’s NFL action concluded with a bizarre tie between the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals — a game in which each team muffed chip shot field goals that would have secured the victory. The day’s earlier action, highlighted by a quartet of wideouts, got started across the pond in Merry Old England…
OBJ INVADES THE UK
Odell Beckham Jr. comforted a speechless fan in London, before his New York Giants defeated the turnover-prone Los Angeles Rams 17-10 at Twickenham Stadium.
Beckham didn’t score any touchdowns, but he made a splash with plaid-patterned cleats before the game…
…before switching into cleats which paid tribute to British bands The Who and Rolling Stones.
A.J. GREEN EMULATES OBJ
While OBJ was flashing his fancy footwear abroad, wide receiver A.J. Green was stateside making a Beckham-like one-handed TD catch to help the Cincinnati Bengals cruise by the Cleveland Browns 31-17.
Green’s excellent hands may be attributed in part to hours spent cradling his infant boy who just turned one month old. Judging for the pose Easton Ace Green struck in the above Instagram post, he already has his father’s excellent TD-catching form down pat.
REF FLATTENS STEFON DIGGS
Meanwhile, in the City of Brotherly Love, the Minnesota Vikings were the last team to be knocked from the ranks of the unbeaten. The visitors succumbed 21-10 to the Philadelphia Eagles — adding insult to injury, Vikings WR Stefon Diggs was laid out by a ref’s forearm shiver in the end zone.
Next up for the Vikings is a road game versus the Chicago Bears. No doubt Diggs will keep one eye on the ball, another on the refs.
T.Y. HILTON DOES JUJU ON THAT BEAT
Last, but not least, T.Y. Hilton felt like cutting the rug in Nashville. The Indianapolis Colts wide receiver caught a touchdown pass early in the second quarter, allowing him to bust out a little “Juju On That Beat” dance.
The Colts went on to defeat the Tennessee Titans 34-26, to remain unbeaten in ten tries against their AFC South rival.
