This particular NFL season has been one of the most bizarre in recent memory. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the Jacksonville Jaguars and Los Angeles Rams are both currently in first place in their respective divisions?
Who knows, but there was plenty to talk (and tweet) about from the games on this week’s schedule. So who said it best in 140 characters or less (for the most part still) during Week 6 of the 2017 NFL season?
Aaron Rodgers’ collarbone wasn’t the only thing that broke in Green Bay this week
Last Sunday, the Green Bay Packers were on top of the world with a 4-1 record after a big win on the road over the Dallas Cowboys. This week, Packers fans saw their team’s Super Bowl dreams go up in flames after quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone that will likely keep him out for the remainder of the 2017 season.

In a rare moment, the Patriots won a game thanks to a bogus call by the refs
The current New England Patriots do not look like the same team that won the Super Bowl less than a year ago. This week, the Patriots escaped New York with a win after the referees made an unbelievable call on what would have given the Jets the lead midway through the fourth quarter.
Obviously, New York’s fans were quiet about the call.

I have written and deleted quite a few tweets since that call. As any of them might get my account suspended. What a disgrace. #Jets

The @NFL just announced “Sorry we screwed up that Jets call.” Just kidding. The NFL NEVER admits they are wrong.

I’m so salty right now. Jets got fucking robbed. Shameless. A real shock to see Pats get a game-changing call, though. That never happens. pic.twitter.com/FpMzOofxC2

This is not hyperbole: That’s the worst call I’ve ever seen in a football game. Ever. In what universe is that a fumble? #Jets

Yo I am cryyyyyiinnnnggg that Jets overturned touchdown is white privilege explained in football form. I can’t breathe.

Who knew all Adrian Peterson needed to play well was a change of scenery — again
In his first game wearing an Arizona Cardinals uniform, Adrian Peterson looked somewhat like the player everyone enjoyed watching for the past decade. The 32-year-old running back finished with 134 rushing yards and two touchdowns during the Cardinals’ win on Sunday.
He entered the week having only rushed for 81 yards in four games this season.

Adrian Peterson gained more yards on his first drive as a Cardinal than any Cardinals running back gained in an entire game this year.
— Trev-OR-Treat ?? (@TampaBayTre) October 15, 2017
Maybe Adrian Peterson was right—he just needs some carries. 4 carries for 54 yds and a 27 yd TD on his first drive as a Cardinal.

Not surprised that Adrian Peterson is dominating today. He has a loan to pay off.

Carson Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald, & Adrian Peterson would’ve been terrifying in 2009.

Thanks to the Steelers, the Chiefs are no longer unbeaten this year
Sometimes it happens sooner, sometimes it happens later, but eventually the last unbeaten team in the NFL each season finds a way to lose at least one game. After the Kansas City Chiefs suffered their first loss of the year to the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, the 1972 Miami Dolphins are still the only team in league history to go the entire regular season and playoffs without losing a single game.
Undefeated no more!

That’s exactly how the Chiefs will lose at home to end their season after the playoff bye, too.

In Chicago, everyone throws touchdowns except for the quarterbacks
Last week, the Chicago Bears punter tossed a touchdown pass. This week, Bears rookie running back Tarik Cohen launched a decently thrown 21-yard pass for a score during their win over the Baltimore Ravens. Who will throw one next week for Chicago? A linebacker?
