Stop me if you've heard this one before: Brock Osweiler is so bad, the Houston Texans literally offered up draft picks just to get him and his massive contract off their books in 2017. "It felt good to our team".
Comfort, of course, was fleeting. He has three four-TD performances in the last five weeks.

Philadelphia cornerback Patrick Robinson read the play the entire way, stepping in front of the pass and collecting a back-breaking interception.
