This couldn’t have come at a better time, as Diggs honored the Vikings legend on a night when Moss was in the house to be inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor. Diggs hit Moss’ classic Splitting the Defense celebration, then went right into a Milly Rock.
Sadly, this is the last Beckham celebration we’ll see this year. He’s been placed on IR after having season-ending surgery to repair a broken ankle he suffered in Week 5 against the Chargers. But this was a good one.
Playing football is hard work, and everybody needs a nap now and then. Kareem Hunt caught up on some hard-earned rest after scoring a touchdown against the Eagles by catching some Z’s in the end zone.
All four teams have held the division lead at some point over the first half of the season. Rivera expects more of the same down the stretch.
I don’t know if we’ll separate ourselves until Week 10 or 11, maybe in two or three more weeks there might be separation, Rivera said. But if there isn’t, I promise you this is going to come down to the last three or four weeks where we’re going to wind up playing each other again.
Some things to watch Sunday:
WINSTON’S SHOULDER: Despite playing with a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston threw for 384 yards and three TDs in last week’s 30-27 loss to Buffalo. For the second straight week, he did not throw in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but is expected to make his 39th consecutive start since entering the NFL as the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2015.
CHUNK PLAYS: This could be the week Panthers quarterback Cam Newton gets back on track. Carolina has struggled with picking up big chunk plays over the past two games with only one pass completion of longer than 20 yards.
