Good as Gould

Robbie Gould continues to be one of the most reliable kickers in the NFL, hitting a game-winner for the 49ers for their fourth-straight win over the Rams.

McSorley Drops a dime

Penn State great Trace McSorley has his first career NFL touchdown under his belt, throwing a nice ball to Marquise Brown who took care of the rest.

A-Rob, Gesicki continue Pro Bowl Pushes

Allen Robinson is the best thing about the Bears. This tweet really encapsulates his situation:

The Michigan native found the endzone twice against the Packers in what were pretty much the only highlights for Matt Nagy's offense.

Not to be outdone, Mike Gesicki is catching touchdowns from Ryan Fitzpatrick once again. The third-year pro has been a favorite of both Dolphins quarterbacks, but Fitzmagic has really found success throwing it to the big tight end.

Cam Brown Saves the Day for the Giants

Cam Brown's stat line looks about as innocuous as it can with just one tackle. However, that one tackle was a game-saving and essentially win-clinching tackle for the Giants. Leading by just two points and a minute to go, the Giants punted away to Bengals. Return man Alex Erickson beat the first few defenders and was looking like he was about to bust loose for a game-winning punt return touchdown. Instead, the former Nittany Lion laid out and made a fantastic special teams play to not only save a touchdown but keep Cincinnati out of field goal range.

The Giants would go on to seal the win with a strip-sack.
