A quick note at the top... Johnny played sparingly in relief of Josh McCown, completing 80% of his passes for 27 yards. He's tapped to be the starter next week should McCown be unable to recover.
Now... on to our bigger stories in Week 7 of the NFL season
6) Damontre Moore
Last week, Damontre was flagged for a late hit that got the Eagles rolling... and this week he found himself among the inactives:
Earlier in week, Tom Coughlin said he didn't know if he could trust DE Damontre Moore. Today, Moore is inactive.— Kimberly Jones (@KimJonesSports) October 25, 2015
For those of you keeping score at home, that's an over-the-top benching for something that probably could have been handled with a week of internal punishment. Which is something we can't relate to at all.
5) Shane Lechler
Shane had himself a heck of a day for the Houston Texans. Eight punts at a 48 yard average, with a net average north of 45.
Sure sounds like a great day of punting fueled by offensive ineptitude. Which is something we can't relate to at all.
4) Christine Michael
Michael was trumpeted all week as someone who might take the reins of the Cowboys RB job... but it appears he didn't do enough in practice to unseat Darren McFadden.
Darren McFadden played 59 of 73 plays yesterday. Christine Michael played seven and Joseph Randle got five before leaving with oblique inj.— Charean Williams (@NFLCharean) October 26, 2015
Wait... is that an Aggie running back uncertain about his position in an organization? That certainly sounds like something we can't relate to at all.
3) Mike Evans
Mike had himself one heck of a day, nabbing eight receptions for 164 yards and a touchdown.
It has been an odd year for Mike, as he seems to oscillate between double digit targets and a Jameis Winston cold shoulder.
He's a really, really talented receiver who occasionally sees too few targets with no explanation, which is certainly something we can't relate to at all.
2) Michael Bennett
Bennett had arguably his best game as a pro on Thursday night, as he was credited for 3.5 sacks in a demolition of the San Francisco 49ers
Make no mistake about it, Bennett is making an early case for defensive MVP on the struggling 3-4 Seahawks. He's an extremely talented defensive player stranded on a struggling team. Which is something we can't relate to at all.
1) Ryan Tannehill
The real story of the weekend was Ryan Tannehill. There's no other way to describe it... the man simply played a perfect game of football.
His start was okay:
Ryan Tannehill: 9-9, 201 Yds, 4 TD It's 50 seconds into the SECOND quarter...— NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) October 25, 2015
And he managed to pick up some minor NFL notables during the afternoon:
Ryan Tannehill spent his Sunday breaking records. 25 consecutive comps (spanning WK6-WK7), most in NFL history! pic.twitter.com/y5eeeR2Zwq— NFL Network (@nflnetwork) October 25, 2015
His final line? A completion rate of 94.7%, 282 yards, 4 TD's, 0 INT's, and a perfect 158.3 quarterback rating.
It was a career day.
Aggie HC Dan Campbell moved to 2-0 on season, and the change had a pretty notable impact on the Dolphins offensive output.
