50 things we learned in Week 10 of the 2015 NFL season

50 things we learned in Week 10.

In honor of Super Bowl 50, here are 50 things we learned in Week 10:.

1. The moment of silence before games, and the showing of the French national flag in some stadiums to remember the victims in Paris, was the right way to start the day.

2. And good job by the networks showing the national anthems before games.

3. Maybe the best was Eagles coach Chip Kelly having “Peace For Paris” on his play sheet.

4. #Perspective.

NFL STATS CENTRAL: The latest NFL scores, schedules, odds, stats and more.

5. And now on to the games ….

6. For the record, the Rams were the first team to score a touchdown in the early games; Packers first to kick a field goal. Hope you had them in your pool.

7. Tip of the helmet to Peyton Manning for setting the career passing yardage record.

8. And a bigger tip of the helmet to Gary Kubiak for having the you-know-whats to bench him when he threw four interceptions.

9. And through all the drama in Denver, the NFL world belonged to Kirk Cousins on Sunday and we just lived in it. Over 300 yards passing. Four touchdowns. Now 4-1 at home this season.

10. But wait. He was playing against Rob Ryan’s defense? Never mind. (Just kidding, Redskins fans. Sorta.).

Pelissero: Peyton Manning’s name only reason QB has stayed in.

11. Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is just special and reminded us of that again on Sunday, especially in the first half when he had four catches for 145 yards.

12. Lions kicker Matt Prater almost had to walk back to Detroit after not one, but two missed extra points almost cost Detroit the game in Green Bay.

13. That is the first-place Vikings, thank you very much.

14. Odell Beckham’s 87-yard score was the longest touchdown catch allowed by the Patriots under Bill Belichick.

15. The Panthers won again. 9-0. Ho-hum.

16. Well, you do have to give the Cowboys credit for one thing: They are finding some new ways to lose each week. Very creative.

17. Incredibly, they still might win the NFC East despite being 2-7 now.

18. Did the 1972 Dolphins have a champagne toast when Ronda Rousey fell from the undefeated ranks?

19. Bill O’Brien interested in the University of Maryland job? That’s what a report said. If the interest is mutual, we know it can’t be because of the way he handles quarterbacks.

20. Losing a contact was probably the best-case scenario for Browns QB Johnny Manziel after Steelers LB Arthur Moats twisted his facemask all the way around. That’s a dangerous play and Moats will pay for it.

21. It didn’t seem fair: Ameer Abdullah of the Lions returned the second-half kick 104 yards but was tackled at the 1, so he didn’t get credit for a touchdown.

22. On the other hand, Damien Williams of the Dolphins had a 5-yard kick return out of the end zone to his own 1-yard line. Yikes. The Eagles turned it into a safety a couple plays later.

23. And then there was Danny Amendola of the Patriots. A great punt return, gets beyond all the Giants but was tripped up by his teammate costing him a touchdown.

24. Speaking of that Miami safety, this was the third straight week the Dolphins have allowed one. First team to do that since the Seahawks managed to do it in 1980.

25. So much for the Packers offense getting better because they were going home after two tough road losses. They were booed going off the field at halftime. And even more in the second half.

26. Didn’t you used to be Joe Flacco?

27. Tweet of the day. From the Carolina Panthers:.

28. Ben Roethlisberger got a standing ovation when he came onto the field to replace an injured Landry Jones. And then all Steelers fans put their hands together in prayer Big Ben wouldn’t get hurt again.

29. He didn’t and received another standing O after throwing for for 379 yards and three touchdowns and beating the Browns for the 19th time in 21 tries.

30. Another game, another touchdown for Jaguars WR Allen Hurns. That is seven games in a row. Wow.

31. Thursday flashback I: Only in the NFL could Jets coach Todd Bowles pretty much get a mulligan for some terrible decision-making because the postgame debate centered on the color of the team’s uniforms.

32. Any questions that Adrian Peterson is back?

Another patented Tom Brady drive keeps Patriots perfect against Giants.

33. How to keep a team in the game: The Eagles had a 16-3 lead and were on the verge of putting it all but out of reach. Then they had a punt blocked and missed a field goal. The Dolphins closed it to 16-13 by halftime and went on to win.

34. Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey missed a field goal attempt after converting 21 in a row dating back to last season.

35. Nice touch by FOX in the first half of Packers-Lions game when they wondered what Vince Lombardi would say about the struggling Packers offense and played the audio of Lombardi’s “What the hell is going on out there?” Remark.

36. The Browns had minus-6 yards rushing in the first half. Not going to win many games doing that.

37. Two games – Packers-Lions and Bucs-Cowboys – did not have a touchdown in the first half of their games. A rarity.

38. Two zebras escaped from the circus and were running loose in Philly while the Eagles and Dolphins were playing. And, no, that wasn’t a referee joke. But we’re sure the zebras were booed.

39. Bears QB Jay Cutler has found a great connection with new coordinator Adam Gase. But it probably won’t last because … Gase’s rehab of Cutler will help him land a head coaching gig.

Aaron Rodgers denounces anti-Islamic fan who ruined moment of silence at Packers game.

40. Biggest surprise: Sean Payton didn’t fire Rob Ryan at halftime.

41. Saw this description of a Nick Foles pass: “Nick Foles was very late on that throw and very inaccurate.”.

42. There’s no parking lot scene in the NFL quite as vibrant as the one at O.Co Coliseum when the Raiders are relevant. The Black Hole is in full effect. Won’t be the same in L.A.

43. Twitterverse was all bubbly about some Johnny Football plays, but Manziel and the Browns offense produced three points when it mattered. Still too much sizzle, not enough steak for making it on Sundays.

44. Having said that, Mike Pettine really needs to keep playing him because the Browns need to know if he is the future. Of course, would be easier if Pettine knew he was the future. The vicious cycle that keeps losing franchises, well, losing.

45. The Bengals would probably rather face Tom Brady than Houston’s T.J. Yates.

46. Todd Gurley is ridiculous. Simply ridiculous.

47. Rookie who doesn’t get as much attention but deserves it: Redskins receiver Jamison Crowder.

48. Roger Goodell, Robert Kraft and Jon Bon Jovi were seen chatting on the field before Patriots-Giants. Will let you all fill in your own punchline on that one.

49. J.J. Watt sure knows how to zing Andy Dalton — the Red Ryder BB Gun — and the still-not-ready-for-prime-time Bengals.

50. The Patriots. They just find a way. That is all.
