Patrick Mahoms and Tyrik Hill have been one of the quarterback-receiver duo in the NFL for the past few years and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are remembered for the 12th week.
At one point in the game, Hill and Mahomes were connected at seven receptions for 203 yards and two touchdowns – all in the first quarter. It only happened three times In the last 30 seasons.
It is safe to say that Hill has cemented his reputation as one of the fastest wide-outs in the NFL with 14 touchdowns of 50-plus yards since he entered the league in 2016 – more than any receiver at the time.

Unfortunately for Tom Brady, this is the second time Mahoms has aired a 75-yard touchdown. Brady has two breaks, increasing his total to 11 in the season to match his total from 2018.
The Buccaneers were interesting as they eventually made it into the Chiefs’ three points, but Mahmos won with 462 passing yards – the second of his career.
Broncos unforgettable week
No team in the NFL has experienced the effects of COVID-19 as the Denver Broncos did on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
Without an early quarterback, the Broncos had to practice roster receiver Kendall Hinton, who has not held this position since 2018. Unfortunately for Hinton, he only completed one pass for 13 yards and had two interceptions.
Denver went the whole of the first half without completing the pass, as Tim Tebo had seen the team once before Did the same in 2011. Luckily for the Broncos, they managed to score three points, which brought Brady and Bucks back in the 9th week.
The Broncos became the first team since the 1998 San Diego Chargers to complete just one pass for 15 yards or less. In the 3rd week of the ’98 season, quarterback Ryan Leaf went 1-for-15 for four yards and two interceptions against the Chiefs.
King Henry runs the jungle in the Colts
Against one of the top defenders in the NFL, Derrick Henry showed the Indianapolis Colts why they are cryptonite.
The Colts have only allowed one player to go 100 or more yards twice this season – twice Henry. This time, he finished the game with 27 carries and three touchdowns for 178 yards
Henry is now ahead of Dolvin Cook as the NFL’s running leader and helped the Titans win late. Not surprisingly, teammate AJ Brown called for Henry to be included in the MVP conversation.
Henry had 100 or more running yards in eight consecutive road games, tying Chris Johnson for the second longest stretch since the 1970 merger, trailing Barry Saunders’ record of 10 consecutive games.
Chin has a memorable performance
Jeremy Chin has a day to remember when the Carolina Panthers lost in a heartbreaking manner at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings.
Rookie Safety includes two fumble recoveries for career-high 13 tackles and touchdowns in a series of plays. It was the first in the Super Bowl era, and he was the fastest player since the play came within 10 seconds of play time.
For the Vikings, victory was almost out of reach when Chad Beeb muffled a punt at the Minnesota 14-yard line. Luckily for Bibi, his defense gave him bail as he caught Carolina for a field goal, and the Vikings stepped on the field to score with receiver Halling in a 10-yard touchdown.
The playoff movie is interesting
Week 12 saw a lot of movement in NFL standings, with the Titans reclaiming AFC South and the New York Giants topping NFC East.
As the NFL playoff format expands, more teams have the opportunity to earn a post-season berth, which means the next few weeks are crucial for any team on the bubble.
The Baltimore Ravens game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday is very important as the Ravens (6-4) sit outside and look to be the eighth seed in the AFC. The Colts’ defeat to the Titans opens the door to a return to the playoffs as the Ravens (6-4) have a tiebreaker.
Sitting behind them was the Las Vegas Raiders (6-5) who suffered a devastating loss at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons, while the New England Patriots (5-6) beat the Arizona Cardinals into the conversation.
At the NFC, there will be some movement between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Seattle Seahawks depending on what happens on Monday night.
The Eagles can regain the lead in the division with victory. As Daniel Jones is expected to miss time with a hamstring injury, Philadelphia can only race with the Washington football team from now until the end of the season, which is what we all expected before the campaign.
The Chicago Bears face a crucial match with the Green Bay Packers as they sit behind the Cardinals, losing their second game in a row. Chicago have a tiebreaker with another conference victory, so victory over their NFC North rival is ahead of Arizona.
Both the Vikings and the San Francisco 49ers have had big wins to stay in the playoff hunt, but will face a tough road if they want to upset the Bears and Cardinals.
