The San Francisco 49ers' defense continued to shine in a big win over the Green Bay Packers, improving to 10-1 for the first time since 1997. The Niners' defense has been getting all the attention this season, but thanks to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's leadership, the offense really stepped up. After a few plays into the game, tight end George Kittle said Jimmy got the offense together and said, "Hey, you gotta play with intensity. Our defense is playing their asses off and we just have to take advantage of the opportunities they're giving us." San Francisco 37, Green Bay 8
Every week there seems to be a major complaint about officiating. This week, everyone is talking about the tripping penalty called on Dallas Cowboys' Travis Frederick on a 3rd and 1, which could have led to a game-winning drive. Instead, the penalty led to a 3rd-and-11, and the Cowboys lost momentum. With the 13-9 loss to the New England Patriots, the Cowboys are 6-5 on the season.
Quarterback Dwayne Haskins was so excited for his first win as a starter with the Washington Redskins, he missed the final play of the game. Instead of taking the field with a few seconds left on the clock to seal the team's win, Haskins was taking a selfie with a fan. According to Haskins, "I was so hype, I think I broke a water bottle. I look up and we're in victory (formation). I thought the game was over with already. But I'll get it next time." Washington Redskins 19, Detroit Lions 16
