Week 8 In The NFL:High Notes, Trade Deadline and Kickers!

Not since SD Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson in 2005 has a player: thrown for, run for and caught a touchdown pass in the same game. SF49ERS RB Christian McCaffrey, who completed the “triple threat.”Well worth the trade and now complimenting superstar Deebo Samuels.

Geno Smith, who has been successful again this season. With the Seahawks tied with the Giants in the fourth quarter, Smith three to Tyler Lockett for the 33-yard, go-ahead score and win the game.

Zach Wilson and the NY Jets are playing well, but NE Patriots defence played better and picked off Wilson twice as the Patriots won and are now looking great with “Zappe Mania” in the AFC East. 

Derrick Henry gained over 200 yards and scored two touchdowns against Houston Texans. Undoubtedly the top RB in the NFL.

Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo, nailed his game-winning field goal in overtime Sunday. With Koo’s 41-yard field goal and the Falcons (4-4) are now in sole possession of first place in the NFC South. 

The trade deadline summary:

SF49ERS trade RB Jeff Wilson Jr. to the Dolphins for a 5th round draft pick.
Chicago Bears trade for Chase Claypool from the Pitt Steelers for a 2nd round draft pick. Plus they trade for Washington cornerback William Jackson.
Det Lions trade TE TJ Hockenson to Vikings for draft choices. Atlanta Falcons trade suspended WR Calvin Ridley to Jacksonville. Denver Broncos send Bradley Chubb to the Miami Dolphins and the Broncos get Chase Edmonds. Buffalo Bills strengthen their offence by acquiring RB catcher Nyheim Hines from the Indy Colts.
