BRADY HELD TO THREE POINTS BY PANTHERS

Tom Brady was held to three points as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers suffered a shock loss to the Carolina Panthers 3-21 on Monday (all times AEDT).

It marked Tampa Bay’s third-straight loss to fall to 3-4, with Brady 32-of-49 for 290 yards.

The 45-year old hasn’t played for a team under .500 this far into a season since the 2002 New England Patriots and he’s never been below .500 after eight games.

It surprisingly came against a Panthers side that went in as heavy underdogs, having won just 12 of their previous 13 games and were playing with a third-string quarterback in P.J. Walker and under an interim head coach.

Walker – filling in for Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold – threw for 177 yards and two touchdowns

Walker found D.J. Moore at the back of the end zone with a 20-yard pass to give the Panthers the lead in the second quarter and Chuba Hubbard’s 17-yard touchdown run made it 14-0 in the third.

All the Bucs could manage was a 27-yard field goal from Ryan Succop in the fourth before Walker delivered again, finding Tommy Tremble with a 29-yard touchdown pass to secure the victory.

Carolina ultimately nullified seven-time Super Bowl champion Brady and the Bucaneers’ offence in an impressive display.

“No one feels good about where we‘re at,” Brady said post-match, per ESPN.

”No one feels good about how we played or what we’re doing. We’re all in it together, and we have to pull ourselves out of it.”

RODGER’ PACKERS ALSO STUMBLE

It wasn’t a good day for legendary NFL quarterbacks as Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers dropped their third straight in a 21-23 kiss to the Washington Commanders.

Rodgers also found himself beaten by a backup quarterback, as Taylor Heinicke and the Commanders came from behind for a narrow win.

A four-yard pass from Rodgers to Aaron Jones gave the Packers a first-quarter lead and they extended that to 14-3 with De’Vondre Campbell’s 63-yard interception return early in the second.

But Heinicke started the comeback with a nine-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Gibson, trimming the half-time deficit to 14-10, and then put Washington ahead thanks to a superb 37-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Terry McLaurin.

Two field goals for Washington gave them a nine-point lead before Rodgers again connected with Jones to make it a two-point game.

To add to his disappointment, it was Rodgers who threw a lateral out of bounds in the desperate final play of the game.

WISHNOWSY COMES UP BIG – AND CELEBRATES ACCORDINGLY

Mitch Wishnowsky is showing his worth.

The San Franciso 49ers forced a fumble off the Aussie’s punt in a massive play against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Wishnowsky went nuts immediately after muffing the point in a moment to saviour for the 30-year old.

The Chiefs did however go on to win 44-23.

Wishnowsky – the 49ers’ 2019 fourth-round pick received a contract extension before week. After a big performance against the Broncos in week three he was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Month.

COWBOYS WIN IN PRESCOTT’S RETURN

It was a better day for returning Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott, who led the Cowboys over Detroit 24-6 in his first appearance since a thumb injury in week one.

Prescott threw for a score and Ezekiel Elliott ran for two 1-yard touchdowns in the win.

Meanwhile Dallas’ defence came up, forcing five turnovers as the Lions went scoreless after half-time and gave up 14 points in the fourth quarter.

The Cowboys are now 5-2 while the Lions fell to 1-5.

“It was important for me to see that and to recognise that and know coming back, don‘t try to do too much,” Prescott said after the win, per ESPN.

”I’m just trying to play my role and make sure that I put this team in the best chance to win.”

GIANTS IMPROVE TO 6-1

The New York Giants claimed their fourth straight victory with a 23-17 triumph over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

New York quarterback Daniel Jones finished with a career-high 107 rushing yards on 11 carries as well as throwing for 202 yards.

It marked the Giants’ best start to a season since 2008, sitting second in the NFC East.

The Jaguars had the final shot and reached New York’s 1-yard line after Trevor Lawrence’s pass to Christian Kirk, but Kirk was tackled by two Giants defenders as time expired to seal the result.

The loss saw Jacksonville fell to 2-5.

BURROW EXPLODES IN MONSTER PERFORMANCE

Joe Burrow went 34 of 42 and had 345 of his 481 yards in the first half alone to lead the Cincinatti Bengals past the Atlanta Falcons 35-16.

The Bengals bursted out of the gates with a 14-point first quarter including Burrow finding Tyler Boyd with a deep 60-yard pass early in the game for a touchdown.

“Any time you go down and score on the first drive on a big play like that, you think it could be one of those days,” Burrow said post-match, per ESPN.

”But it was really about the execution throughout the whole game.”

It marked Burrow’s best game for the season and the second-best game of his career, whole he became the first QB to record five games of 400 years or more in his first three seasons, according ESPN Stats and Info.

Cincinnati improved to 4-3 and above .500 for the first time this season to set equal first with the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North.
