Crazy Upsets In College, Dolphins/Bears Wild Game, 7-7 Jets Field Goals, Brady’s Big Win, ALCS/NLCS Tied Up

FOOTBALL

There were some crazy upsets in college football over the weekend. #2 Georgia lost to #13 LSU, and Wisconsin, Miami, West Virginia, and Penn State all lost as well. Auburn’s loss was particularly upsetting to the fans as the team’s head coach signed a $49 million extension this off-season making his buyout worth about $32 million.  Alabama and Ohio State remain at #1 and #2 respectively with 7 wins and 0 losses.

In the NFL, one of the wildest games of the weekend featured the Miami Dolphins vs the Chicago Bears. With no explanation before the game or in the press conference after the game, Brock Osweiler started as the quarterback (over Ryan Tannehill). With the game tied at 28-28, the teams headed into overtime. The Dolphins could win the game with a touchdown (a field goal would have extended the game allowing the other team a possession), but on 3rd down, the Dolphins fumbled the ball in the end zone. The play was ruled a touchback allowing the Bears to march down the field for the game-winning field goal. Dolphins 31, Bears 28.

In some other interesting games, the New York Jets beat the Indianapolis Colts 42-34 with a franchise record 7-of-7 field goals.

The New England Patriots barely escaped with a win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes went head to head with veteran QB Tom Brady, but Brady proved why he’s one of the best quarterbacks in history with 340 yards, a touchdown, and a rushing touchdown to hand the Chiefs their first loss of the season (and Mahomes first loss ever). Patriots 43, Chiefs 40. Fun fact, this battle marked the first 43-40 game in NFL history.

In the American League Championship Series, the Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros are tied at one game apiece, and in the National League Championship Series, the Milwaukee Brewers and the Los Angeles Dodgers are also tied at 1-1.
