Tannehill tosses TD No. 3

Ryan Tannehill is a perfect example of why system fit, coaching, and supporting cast play such a key factor in a quarterback’s success. While playing with essentially nothing in Miami, Tannehill was benched and traded for nothing to back up Marcus Mariota. Fast forward one year later and he has produced near identical numbers to Patrick Mahomes (in the span since Tannehill took over as Titans starter). He’s rolling again in Week 6 with three TDs in one half.

Logan Thomas taps the toes in for a TD

Remember when Thomas played quarterback? Well, now he has made the conversion to a full-time tight end, where he starts for Washington, and he may have just made the best catch of the young Week 6 slate. Thomas dragged the feet and tapped his toes in while maintaining possession for the TD to get Washington back in the mix against the Giants.

Claypool continues rookie tear

Chase Claypool might be making a late case for Offensive Rookie of the Year…and maybe…just maybe…he’s the new No. 1 receiver for the Steelers moving forward. Claypool continued building on a breakout Week 5 by making one of the best catches of Week 6 so far. Claypool creates separation with ease and offers a massive target for the quarterback. Ben Roethlisberger has to love it.

Fitzpatrick with the pick six

In a battle to keep pace in arguably the NFL‘s best division, Minkah Fitzpatrick gave the Steelers a nice boost when he jumped a Baker Mayfield route for the interception and soon returned it for a touchdown. Mayfield, who is playing through bruised ribs, has struggled to get going in the first quarter.

Julio returns to action in a big way

After missing last week with a hamstring injury, it appeared Julio Jones might take some time to return to action (given his history with hamstring injuries), but when he was removed from the injury report altogether heading into Week 6, some excitement started to build in a prime matchup for Atlanta’s offense. It took no time for Jones, who caught the first touchdown of the slate against an ailing Vikings secondary. Jones has two receptions for 43 yards and a TD already.

Drew Lock returns as Broncos starter

Broncos fans who want some more clarity on the future of their franchise will get it starting today when 2019 second-round pick Drew Lock returns to the starting lineup. Lock (shoulder) won’t get his full slate of weapons with Melvin Gordon out and Courtland Sutton on IR, but he’ll get an opportunity to build a rapport with 2020 first-round pick Jerry Jeudy, who has thrived on a per-play basis this season. Lock will have the opportunity now to pull off one of the biggest wins of his career against Bill Belichick and the Patriots.
