DeVonta Smith (WR Alabama), Mac Jones (QB Alabama), Trevor Lawrence (QB Clemson), and Kyle Trask (QB Florida) were named Heisman Trophy finalists. The winner will be announced on January 5th in a virtual ceremony. 

Down by three points against the Las Vegas Raiders with only nineteen seconds left in the game, Miami quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick came off the bench to replace starter Tuo Tagovailoa. With his head almost turned around due to a face mask penalty, Fitzpatrick showed his FitzMagic and threw a 34-yard no-look hail mary to Mack Hollins to set up a 26-25 win. The Dolphins still plan to start Tua Tagovailoa over Fitzpatrick next weekend against the Buffalo Bills, but who knows if they'll need the FitzMagic back. 

Check out this amazing play fake by Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill for a 45-yard touchdown run. It wasn't enough though, as the Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers connected with Davante Adams for three touchdown passes in a 40-14 win.
