Any given Sunday
The GIST: It’s been a good few days for Canadian football. First the CFL gave us hope for a 2021 season, then Alabama Crimson Tide wide receiver (WR) John Metchie III caught this touchdown (TD) for his NCAA-leading team and Pittsburgh Steelers rookie WR Chase Claypool scored his 10th TD in 10 games, setting an NFL record. There must be something in the
water maple syrup.
Sweet. And in the rest of the NFL?: Here are some more highlights from the NFL’s Week 11:
- King of overtime: We don’t get to see overtime very often in football (though there were two yesterday!), so Tennessee Titans running back (RB) Derrick “King” Henry took full advantage of the extra time with this game winner over the Baltimore Ravens.
- One-and-done: Why use two hands when you can use one? That’s all Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen needed to catch this unreal TD.
- Chase the dream: Defensive plays don’t always get the love they deserve, but check out this forced fumble by Chase Young, the second pick of the 2020 NFL Draft, on No. 1 pick Joe Burrow (who later suffered a nasty ACL tear...so awful.)
