The GIST: NFL Sunday had some lowlights — including the loneliest Lambeau Leap of all time, and not one, but two stars likely tearing their ACLs — and some serious highlights. Here are our top three:

  • This 46-yard TD run from Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette that gave the Bucs their first win under quarterback (QB) Tom Brady.
  • A one-handed grab for Dallas Cowboy Amari Cooper. The Cowboys put together a 16-point fourth quarter to come from behind and beat the Atlanta Falcons 40–39. Close one.
  • And the longest TD of the still-young season: an 84-yard pass from Pittsburgh Steeler QB Ben Roethlisberger to wide receiver Chase Claypool, for the Canadian rookie’s first-ever TD. Big day for Canada!
