Looking for the best highlights of Week 13 of the NFL regular season? We’ve got you covered with the 10 best of the week.
From long runs to incredible catches and Josh Gordon’s return, we’ve got it all for you in Week 13. Here are the 10 best highlights from Sunday.
10. Beastmode being beastmode
The Raiders are on a roll. With a Chiefs loss today, the Raiders are inching closer and closer in the AFC West. They started things off quick today with a Marshawn Lynch 51-yard touchdown run. Lynch took the handoff from Derek Carr early in the first quarter and ran past the entire Giants defense for the score.
I mean, he’s called beastmode for a reason. The Giants defense has been absolutely terrible this season and this play was indicative of that. There’s no way they should be letting a 31-year old running back run all over them but I guess that pretty much sums up the season right there.
9. Welcome back, Josh Gordon
It’s great to see Josh Gordon back on the field again. Drugs and other distractions kept him out of the league for the past two seasons but he’s back and already making an impact. Gordon had this fantastic catch late in the first half against the Chargers. He jumped over cornerback Casey Hayward to make the catch.
Hayward isn’t a scrub cornerback either. He was the AFC Defensive Player of the Month in November. But on this play, good defense was beaten by even better offense. Gordon is by far the best player on a struggling Browns team. Hue Jackson and company are hoping Gordon can play back to the kind of production he was putting up in 2012 and 2013. From what we’ve seen today, it’s entirely possible.
