Hey everyone, this is Sam with Sports Obsessive. NFL Football fans, we know you can’t watch every game and that sometimes you have to rely on stats and highlights to catch up. We want to make sure you turn to us for all your NFL analysis. Let Sports Obsessive get you completely up to date, starting with a look at the action from the tenth week of games…
Did We Just See The NFL Catch Of The Year?
I think we did. That game-winning Hail Mary Catch by DeAndre Hopkins in the Arizona-Buffalo game is the Catch of the Year. It was unbelievable. This game went to the very end. We deserved this after the pandemic waiting with all the high-profile games we got this week, but this game gave it to us. After the Bills scored the touchdown in the final minute to see them go ahead. The Cardinals soon answered back with a 43 yard Hail Mary from QB Kyler Murray who was ducking and dodging everyone to WR DeAndre Hopkins with just two seconds to go.
“Just to get the pass off was incredible,” Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said. “[Murray is] running and dodging and ducking. I didn’t think he’d get it off. From my vantage point, I couldn’t see much, but I saw the crowd go crazy. I kept asking our guys, ‘Did he catch it?'”
What I want to know is how did he catch that with THREE defenders on him? Hopkins was in the exact right place to outjump everyone else. Many in Arizona are already calling it the “Hail Murray.” Arizona ended up pulling it out 32-30.
I think we definitely have to start out by giving big props to Alex Smith as Washington’s starting QB. Yes, he was technically a loser of the game by 3 points. This was his first start since his horrific leg injury that almost took his leg. He ended up throwing for 390 yards and led a 21 point comeback in the second half.
For all you fantasy players out there, you already know this one. Tom Brady passed Jerry Rice as the all-time leader in fantasy points. The GOAT did it in his typical fashion needing just 9.28 points, but blowing up for 31.84 points.
Let’s go ahead and give a shout out to the kickers this week. They had 10 made 50-yard field goals with four made 55-yard field goals on Sunday. This tied the most in a single day in NFL history.
My goodness, what has happened to Russell Wilson? Wasn’t he a MVP candidate through the seven games? The last two games, he has had two TDs, four INTs and three lost fumbles. Oh, did I mention he lost both games too?
Before this Sunday, there wasn’t an advantage for bettors as home teams were averaging 7.2 wins per week. The away teams were averaging 7.4 wins per week. This week we all should have been betting on away teams since they went 1-11.
The Best of the Rest of Week 10
The Sunday Night Football matchup of the Patriots against the Ravens featured a downpour in New England, so Coach Bill Belchick took advantage of it. Neither team scored during the 4th quarter flood making it hard to stay up to watch this game.
As bad as I hate to say it Pittsburgh is now 9-0. The Steelers had no problems with the Bengals on Sunday as Ben Roethlisberger threw for 333 yards and 4 TDs. He’s tossed 9 TDs and zero INTs in the month of November. They have a very favorable schedule the rest of the way. Pittsburgh only has three difficult games with Ravens, Bills, Colts standing in the way of a 16-0 season.

Watch For Next Week
Drew Brees said he doesn’t know if he will be able to play in Week 11 after he was sidelined by an injury to his ribs at halftime of the New Orleans Saints’ 27-13 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Coach Sean Payton said Brees will have an MRI and X-rays to determine the extent of the injury.
