WATCH: Michael Pittman Jr. gives Colts lead with TD

Watch Michael Pittman Jr. give the Colts a lead with his first touchdown since Week 1.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. found the end zone Monday night for the first time since Week 1.

After a disastrous series of events as Jonathan Taylor botched a handoff at the goal line during the previous drive, the defense got a three-and-out. Then Matt Ryan marched down the field, connecting with rookie tight end Jelani Woods on passes of 16 yards and 28 yards.

This set up a beautiful back-shoulder fade to Pittman Jr. to give the Colts a 17-16 lead near the end of the third quarter.

WATCH: Full highlights of Bucs’ OT loss vs. Browns

Check out all the highlights from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 23-17 overtime loss to the Cleveland Browns in Week 12

Despite riding a two-game winning streak, and having an extra week to prepare during the bye, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fell 23-17 to the Cleveland Browns in overtime Sunday.

Tampa Bay let a late 17-10 lead slip away in the final moments of regulation, then failed to score in overtime before allowing Cleveland’s game-winning drive.

Bucs fans probably don’t want to relive Sunday’s action, but if you do, watch the video above.

WATCH: Christian Watson catches 63-yard TD from Jordan Love

Watch Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Christian Watson score his sixth touchdown in the last three games

Aaron Rodgers is out with an injury, but it looks like the Green Bay Packers offense is in good hands with backup Jordan Love.

The 2020 first-round pick entered the game early in the fourth quarter, and promptly threw a dart over the middle to rookie wide receiver Christian Watson, who raced 63 yards for a touchdown.

The score brought the Packers within a touchdown of the Philadelphia Eagles, with plenty of time to keep mounting an improbable comeback against the team with the NFL’s best record.

That’s now six touchdown catches in the last three games for Watson, who struggled with multiple injuries earlier in the season, but has been dominant now that he’s at full strength.

If Rodgers is forced to miss any kind of extended time, it looks like the offense shouldn’t miss a beat with Love behind center.

WATCH: Titans rookie WR Treylon Burks scores his 1st NFL TD in the strangest way

Watch Tennessee Titans first-round pick Treylon Burks score his first NFL touchdown in the most unconventional fashion

Every NFL player dreams of the moment they score their first career touchdown, and while that moment finally came Sunday for Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver Treylon Burks, it probably didn’t happen the way he’d imagined.

Titans running back Derrick Henry had caught a screen pass, and was racing for what looked like a 75-yard touchdown Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, but a defender punched the ball out of his arms just before he crossed the goal line.

Lucky for Henry and the Titans, their first-round pick had been hustling down the field the whole time, diving on the loose ball in the end zone for the score:

That’s not usually how wide receivers get on the board, but it’ll make for a fun story Burks can tell for years to come.

Packers vs. Eagles: Live updates, scoring plays, highlights from SNF

The Packers are taking on the Eagles on “Sunday Night Football” from Philadelphia in Week 12.

The Green Bay Packers (4-7) are going on the road to play the Philadelphia Eagles (9-1) on “Sunday Night Football” from Lincoln Financial Stadium in Week 12.

Stick with Packers Wire for live updates, scoring plays and highlights from SNF:

Tyrann Mathieu deflects an end zone pass, 49ers still catch it for a tip-drill TD

Tyrann Mathieu deflected an end zone pass, but the 49ers still completed it for a tip-drill TD. It’s a fitting summary of the Saints season so far:

This play kind of summarizes the entire New Orleans Saints season, doesn’t it? Tyrann Mathieu was signed to a ton of fanfare, but he caught a bad break just before halftime in their Week 12 game with the San Francisco 49ers. Mathieu got a hand on a high-arcing pass from Jimmy Garoppolo in the end zone, deflecting it off of its intended path — what would almost always be seen as a positive play.

But this time the ball spun in midair and fell into the hands of Jauan Jennings for a San Francisco touchdown. Call it a stroke of misfortune or more of the same for a snakebitten Saints season: the result is the same. For a team playing with such a thin margin for error, New Orleans can’t even have random moments like this go their way.

WATCH: Demario Davis delivers his Saints pregame speech before kickoff vs. 49ers

WATCH: Demario Davis delivers his Saints pregame speech before kickoff vs. 49ers

It’s been a tough year for the New Orleans Saints, who have leaned hard on team leaders like Demario Davis. The veteran linebacker and defensive captain has enjoyed the best production of his career since signing with the Saints back in 2018, and he’s proven to be an invaluable presence for their defense. It’s on him to set expectations with a fiery pregame speech to his teammates.

Davis first started delivering a weekly address when Drew Brees went down with an injury, picking up No. 9’s long-running tradition with ease. With the Saints experiencing more adversity than ever, having respected voices in the locker room like Davis brings value you can’t quantify.
