Javon Wims Throws Punch To Helmet In Bears Loss, Steelers Undefeated, Tua’s Debut & Dolphin Win, Chargers Make History (Unfortunately)


In one of the most bizarre and ugly incidents on Sunday, Chicago Bears’ wide receiver Javon Wims walked straight up to Saints’ safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson after the play ended and punched him in the helmet twice. Gardner-Johnson didn’t fight back (he looked almost stunned at what happened). Wims was immediately ejected and awaits the ruling on the rest of his punishment for this egregious act. It’s not clear if this incident rattled the team, but Bears’ quarterback Nick Foles threw an interception on the next play. The Bears ended up losing in overtime 23-26.

The Pittsburgh Steelers remain undefeated after beating the Baltimore Ravens 28-24.

Tua Tagovailoa’s debut as starting quarterback for the Miami Dolphins was solid enough for the team to beat a battered LA Rams offense 28-17.

The Los Angeles Chargers made history on Sunday night as the first time team in the NFL (since the 2003 Atlanta Falcons) to lose three straight games in the same season after leading by 17 or more points. As the Chargers were melting down, the Denver Broncos got fired up by a halftime speech from quarterback Drew Lock and scored 28 second-half points (and a game-winning touchdown as time expired) to win 31-30.  In a post-game interview, Lock said, “I just got up in front of the offense and said, ‘Listen, it’s so easy for us to come in here and yell and scream and get mad about what we’re doing bad, but we just need to man up, and when the plays come our way, we need to make them, myself included. I’m not yelling at y’all, I’m obviously talking to myself right now, screaming to myself right now. And that’s exactly what we did.”
