Allen Robinson Cannot Be Stopped

Whether it's Mitch Trubisky or Nick Foles, Bears quarterbacks (all quarterbacks?) love Allen Robinson. The receiver reeled went over 100 yards for the second straight week and had another impressive touchdown. The Bears ultimately came up short, moving to 3-1 on the year.

Yetur Gross-Matos Gets First Career Sack

Yetur Gross-Matos made his presence felt against the Cardinals, registering a strip-sack of former No. 1 overall pick Kyler Murray. It was the first sack of YGM's career and helped give fellow Nittany Lion letterman Matt Rhule the first home win of his NFL head coaching career.

Chisena Makes an impact

Dan Chisena is finding a way to make an impact for the Vikings. The former walk-on recovered his first fumble on punt coverage, giving Kirk Cousins and Co. great field position in their first win of the season.

In some sad NFL news, former Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien was fired as head coach and GM of the Houston Texans on Monday, after an 0-4 start to the season. O'Brien went 52-44 in six full seasons in Houston, winning the AFC South four times. While the Texans only had one losing season under BOB, they never made it past the Divisional Round of the playoffs.
