Week 9 of the NFL season is in full swing, and there’s plenty to look forward to after a wild trade deadline that shook up rosters across the league, with 20 players traded at or near the cutoff this past Tuesday.
Here are the top plays from Sunday’s action!
Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions
Packers receiver Romeo Doubs was carted to the locker room with an apparent ankle injury, and things only got worse for Aaron Rodgers & Co.
What started as a potential go-ahead touchdown ended in an ugly interception for GB in the first quarter.
When it rains, it pours
Then, Rodgers was picked off again in the end zone, as the Lions continued to shut out the Packers.

T.J. Hockenson picked up a clutch first down on his first reception as a Viking, setting up a dazzling Justin Jefferson touchdown on Minnesota’s opening drive.
Los Angeles Chargers at Atlanta Falcons
Back in action
The Falcons charged downfield on their opening drive, and Cordarrelle Patterson came up big for the home team, powering through the Chargers defense in his first game back after being activated from injured reserve Saturday.
Austin Ekeler came up with back-to-back second-quarter scores — one rushing and one receiving — to put Los Angeles ahead as the first half winded down.
Carolina Panthers at Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals shut out the Panthers in the first half, thanks to the fancy footwork from Joe Mixon, who punched in three first-half touchdowns for the home team.
Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots
Matthew Judon and the Patriots defense was relentless in the first quarter, pressuring Sam Ehlinger early.
Buffalo Bills at New York Jets
The Bills‘ dynamic duo of Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs went to work right out of the gate.

Justin Fields pulled one over on the Dolphins defense, connecting with Cole Kmet for a score and the lead.
