Coronovirus was widespread through the NFL all season, an uneasy edge in Week 12, with multiple teams piecing together solutions to player absenteeism that resulted from positive tests and close contacts. The league, however, received all 12 of Sunday’s games regardless of issues. But Tuesday’s game in which more than 20 Ravens players could be out due to coronavirus outbreaks.
Here’s what we learned:

He is rushing for 3,497 yards and 30 touchdowns for the season and has thrown just two interceptions.
Top Runner: Derrick Henry
Due to his size, many people prefer Derrick Henry to run inside the tackle, but the Titans’ star running back is as good as running outside. In Sunday’s major effort against Indianapolis, Henry gained 146 of his 178 yards while running for runs outside the tackle, According to the NFL’s Next Gen Stats database, Runs right to the outside of all three of Henry’s touchdowns.
Top Recipients: Tyrik Hill

Bill 27, charger 17 The Buffalo defense did most of the heavy lifting in this win at home, but Josh Allen threw a 2-yard touchdown pass, and ran in a 3-yard score, giving him 15 career game passes and both rushing touchdowns. meet. Allen only surpassed Cam Newton, who had 20 for such games in the first three seasons.
Head 27, Bookers 24 Patrick Mahomes threw for 462 yards and Tyrick Hill had 269 yards, but the final 8 of all those yards were potentially the most important as there was 1 minute 15 seconds left from Mahomes to Hill in Kansas City. Placed first and allowed the team to run out of clock in a game that was going away from them.
Titans 45, Colts 26 Indianapolis received 295 yards from Phillip River, and two stunning touchdowns from backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett, but it was not enough to compete with Tennessee, which could lead the entire second half to offense and then Also won.
49th 23, Ram 20 Running backs Rahim Mostert and Jeff Wilson returned from injury – a most welcome scene for San Francisco – but it was driven by troubled wide receiver Debo Samuel, who had 11 catches for 133 yards, and defensive tackle Javed Kinlaw, who 27- were of. Yard Pick-6.
Patriots 20, Cardinals 17 Arizona came into the day averaging 414.3 yards a game, but New England limited the Cardinals to a respectable 298. Kylar Murray was held for the first time 14 years before December 1, 2019, without a touchdown pass.
Brown 27, Jaguar 25 Florida’s warm weather helped awake Cleveland’s passing game, with Baker Mayfield throwing for 258 yards and two touchdowns. But the Browns are unlikely to change their run-heavy approach as Mayfield also missed badly on several other potential touchdowns while Nick Chubb ran for 144 yards on 19 carries.
Vikings 28, Panthers 27 One of the more impressive make-good moments, you’ll see, was Minnesota’s wide receiver Chad Beebe shaking the catch on a comeback late in the fourth quarter, giving Carolina the lead with a field goal, followed by a goal. Further touch on his team’s upcoming possession.
Saints 31, Broncos 3 While Denver was limited to 13 yards, New Orleans managed just 78 at the start of Tysam Hill’s second career at the Quartzback. It would be too long until the Saints’ running game could generate 229 yards and four touchdowns every week.
Packers 41, Bears 25 It was 41-10 in the third quarter when the Packers decided that they had tried long enough and let Chicago do what they had to do for the rest of the game. The result was a final score that was much closer than the game had ever felt, but if the team kept the pressure on, Green Bay would have been easier to score 50 or more points.
Giants 19, Bengals 17 Despite losing to quarterback Daniel Jones due to a hamstring injury in the third quarter, Big Blue was able to put up a fight in front of Joe Burrow-Les Cincinnati. Backup quarterback Colt McCoy didn’t do much, but the Giants scored three field goals following Jones’ injury, enough to secure the team’s third straight win. The 4-7 Giants lead the NFC East to first place with Washington ahead of Philadelphia’s game on Monday, 3-6-1 against Seattle.
Falcons 43, Raiders 6 After the Raiders lost last week, much of the discussion centered on how well Derek Carr had played against Kansas City. He lost three fumbles in a humiliating loss to Atlanta and turned that narrative on his head by throwing a pick-6.
