Amon-Ra St. Brown continues to attract attention in the North American football league NFL. The German-American passport recipient recorded his third touchdown in the 16:20 defeat of the Detroit Lions on Sunday (26.12.21) at the Atlanta Hawks. Even so, the playoffs will take place without the Lions.
Debut for Eberle at Houston Texans
Dominik Eberle of the Houston Texans has made a successful debut. In the 41:29 win against the Los Angeles Chargers, the 25-year-old kicker turned two of his three attempts on Sunday. Eberle was only signed three days ago after missing the main squad with the Las Vegas Raiders and the Carolina Panthers. In the duel against the Chargers, the 25-year-old replaced Ka’imi Fairbairn. Despite their success, the Texans have no chance of making it to the finals.
Tampa Bay back on the road to success
After the 9-0 loss to the New Orleans Saints the previous week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers returned to star quarterback Tom Brady. With the 32: 6 at the Panthers, the champions moved into the playoffs. In the battle for first place in the AFC East, the New England Patriots and Jakob Johnson from Stuttgart were defeated by the Buffalo Bills 21:33.
Rodgers breaks Packers touchdown record
Star quarterback Aaron Rodgers overtook legendary Brett Favre on Saturday (25.12.21) and now holds the Green Bay Packers’ touchdown record in the National Football League. In the 24:22 win against the Cleveland Browns Rodgers booked three on Christmas Day TouchdownPasses and now comes to a total of 445 – three more than Favre, whose substitute Rodgers was at the beginning of his career.
After the record touchdown, Favre sent a video congratulation to his successor in the Lambeau Field recorded: “I have a request. Get us another Super Bowl. Congratulations.”
On a good way
The Packers with the German-American Equanimeous St. Brown have already been determined as division winners and are well on their way to becoming the top-ranked team Playoffs to start. That would give them a bye and home right until Conference-Finals guarantee. In the past two seasons, the Packers had lost what nearly ended Rodgers’ time with the Packers in the summer. The 38-year-old celebrated his only Super Bowl victory in 2010.
