2. These Crazy-Excited Texans-Rooting Kids Are Awesome
I mean, the Texans were getting their butts handed to them, and these kids just went COMPLETELY BONKERS when Houston scored a late, meaningless touchdown. We should all be such good fans.
3. FOOTBALL HULK SMASH, LOVE DEFENSE
We don’t really want to ask too many questions here. Moving on.
4. Visual Proof That The Jaguars Actually Had A Puncher’s Chance Of Beating Denver
Cutting the deficit to two points midway through the third quarter was as close as the dreadful Jags would get, but for a 27-point underdog, that’s better than a lot of the other potential outcomes.
5. The NFL’s Best Tight End Plays By The Bay

You score three touchdowns and you can dance however the hell you want. That’s how it works.
17. DON’T WORRY, MERELY A FLESH WOUND
Peyton Manning was not injured on this play, but AHHHHHHHH imagine if he had been. Jason Babin would’ve been in Witness Protection by halftime.

Undefeated and 6-0 for the first time since 2003, the Chiefs handled the Raiders with relative ease. A stifling defense that produces 10 sacks will do that.
