Nine juicy and sporadic weeks in the books, folks, which means it’s time for our wacky weekly social media recap of the newest insane collection of NFL performances. First, let’s get pumped up by 2-6 Hard Knocks reality star Almost Famous Jameis Winston.

Thanks, Jameis. Now we can mindfully check in on a week flooded with season-ending injury news featuring the future of Andrew Luck.
Tony Romo with the subtle yet effective shade toss at Deion Sanders.
Earlier this week, I QRT’d this video of Marcus Peters not tackling. Well check this one out and listen to Romo pic.twitter.com/czUNfCCEkb

Before we continue with football, a big shoutout to the World Series winning Houston Astros and this beautiful human being, Evan Gattis.
He’s a true inspiration, really a teamwork=dreamwork type of guy. There’s no doubt in my mind that the show of teamwork below was due to the euphoric feelings of “started from the bottom, now we here.”
This lady dropped her hat and all the Astros fans worked together to get it all the way back up to her. This is great 😂😂😂pic.twitter.com/Kj6oyMFwZy

Now back to the NFL, where tantalizing rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson had been annihilating defenses left and right with no sign of stoppage. As reported last week, a non-contact ACL tear in practice was Watson’s kryptonite. Our thoughts are with you, Deshaun. Now, on to the twitter onslaught.

And of course, Titans fans throw in their thoughts.
LSU product Jarvis Landry has always been a stud receiver (most catches by a wide receiver in his first two seasons in the league with 195), but oh man his blocking effort is unacceptable.
On the Willingness-to-Block Scale, Jarvis goes to 11. Always has. pic.twitter.com/oCwlJMFpx9

Then came the uninviting matchup between the somehow decent AFC East rival Bills and Jets. To put it mildly, I was pleasantly surprised by this juicy Gang Green outcome.. even before they took over the Internet with their defensive dancing.

Time to check in on Aaron Rodgers after a week off (h/t @TheOnion).
Sean McDermott is awesome, by the way.

Time to check in on AJ Green, who was floating like a butterfly after being stung by a Jalen Ramsey bee. Wrong fight.

Ben McAdoo has single-handedly ruined football. One press conference pretty much sums it up.
Reporter: “What did you tell your team at halftime?”
— NFL Update (@MySportsUpdate) November 6, 2017
Hmm. Cue Larry David.
The Dak Prescott effect is real. Return of the Dak.
Oh and Tyreek Hill is still a freak, especially before the half. This guy is just way too fun to watch.

Of course we have to cut to Sammy Sosa. Or, rather, his pink alter ego Slammy Rosa.
A quick side by side comparison of what was there.
Finally, enjoy the worst jump ball in NBA history.
This has to be the worst jump ball thrown by a ref in NBA history. Even Kanter who won it was like WTF? 😂 pic.twitter.com/0wkwgg4EUv
