The Cowboys earned a first down tonight in a play so ridiculous it made the Steelers’ loss look positively pedestrian. The NFL uses computer chips in uniforms, pads, and the football itself—but the decision to award first downs still comes down to a technology so analogue it existed two hundred years before the…

Russell Wilson may or may not have dodged the concussion protocol earlier, but he set up a fourth-quarter Seahawks touchdown with this celebration of creativity and athleticism that culminated in Doug Baldwin hauling in what turned out to be a 54-yard catch and run. ¡Increible!

Albert Wilson hauled in a tipped pass to go 63 yards and give Kansas City a 27-21 lead over the Raiders in what’s been a very interesting Thursday night game; subsequently, some very un-FCC-friendly language made its way onto the broadcast, which is what we’re all here for, right?
