Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence threw an interception in the first quarter of Saturday’s game against Georgia Tech, breaking a string of 366 pass attempts without being picked off.
On a third-and-6 play with about two minutes left in the quarter, Georgia Tech’s Zamari Walton intercepted the pass — the first interception thrown by Lawrence since Oct. 19, 2019, against Louisville.
Russell Wilson holds the Atlantic Coast Conference record for the most consecutive pass attempts without an interception — 379 — set when he played for North Carolina State in 2008-09.
The interception didn’t seem to faze Lawrence. The No. 1-ranked Tigers took a 52-7 lead at halftime, and Lawrence completed 22 of 27 attempts for 391 yards and five touchdowns. The junior is a Heisman Trophy favorite and is widely predicted as the No. 1 selection of the 2021 NFL Draft.

We almost got to see a day full of NFC North vs AFC East matchups. The Patriots defeated the Bears in game that came down to a few feet on a final play. The Vikings dismantled the Jets, and the Lions beat Miami by 11. Green Bay had their long needed bye week, and Buffalo was trounced by the Colts 37-5 (a score that had never happened before). The NFC North won the day 2-1, pushing the Bears from 1st to 4th in a matter of a few hours. The NFC North is a certainly one of the closest divisions, with all four teams sitting at 3 or 4 wins.

For some, it was an amazing week, like Tom Brady, Todd Gurley and Tyreek Hill. For others like Marcus Mariota, it was a week to forget. The Titans allowed him to be sacked 11 times, and yet he completed only 10 passes. It’s not uncommon to see something like this when a backup comes in for a possession or two, but Mariota played the entire game. Either the Ravens defense was on fire, or the Titans are in desperate need of a offensive line.

It would appear that the Fitzmagic is gone. Following a dismal first-half performance in Chicago, he was replaced by Jameis Winston. While neither quarterback was able to get much going, Winston will be the starter following Tampa Bay’s bye week.

On Thursday night, Jared Goff and Kirk Cousins combined for just under 900 passing yards and 8 touchdowns. The receivers also had a field day, with Cooper Kupp recording 2 Touchdowns on 162 yards, and Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen both having strong performances for the Vikings.
