Another jam-packed week of NFL action saw plenty of high-quality, heart-warming and hilarious moments across 13 epic games.

While a Tom Brady milestone, an Arizona Cardinals domination and a Kansas City Chiefs capitulation grabbed most of the headlines, there were plenty of other talking points out of the weekend.

‘TERRIBLE DEAL’: Fan returns Tom Brady milestone ball worth $500k

‘PLAYING MADDEN’: Lions dial up wild trick plays

‘GUTTED': Surprise NFL trade that rocked Aussie superstar

Here’s some of the moments you might’ve missed from Week 7 of the 2021 NFL season.

Daniel Jones pulls off catch of the year contender

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones wouldn’t have been amongst the pre-season favourites to win the NFL’s catch of the year award, but he’s surprisingly in with a shot following an incredible grab against the Carolina Panthers.

After the Giants ran a reverse, Jones found himself wide open for Dante Peti’s’ throw, which he spectacularly reeled in. 

The one-handed nature of the grab has led to fans on social dubbing him ‘ODJ’, in reference to Odell Beckham Jr.’s famous catch in 2014.

Williams goes full kit to show his support

A knee injury ruled Arizona Cardinals tight end Maxx Williams out of their clash with the Houston Texans on Sunday, however that didn’t stop the 27-year-old suiting up anyway.

Collins donned his full kit including helmet, shoulder pads and cleats as he tuned in from home.

Tom Brady’s heart-warming gesture

A young Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan caught the attention of Tom Brady with a home made sign reading ‘Tom Brady helped me beat brain cancer’ during the Bucs’ clash win over the Chicago Bears.

Upon spotting the sign late in the game, Brady ventured over and gave the fan his hat, bringing the youngster to tears.

Henry shows he can do it all

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has already entered his name into the MVP conversation with his unbelievable rushing numbers this season, but the 27-year-old is no one trick pony.

Henry showed he has another string to his bow during the 27-3 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, throwing a touchdown pass to MyCole Pruitt on a trick play early in the first quarter.

Buccaneers defence celebrates in style

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defence brought out the ‘row the boat’ celebration after Jason Pierre Paul forced Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields into a fumble, during a 38-3 demolition of the Bears.

The most impressive aspect of this celebration was no doubt the high level of participation from all members of the defensive unit.

Fan well prepared for Santa Clara downpour

The weather forecast for the San Francisco 49ers’ Sunday night clash with the Indianapolis Colts was for rain, rain and more rain.

For once, the weatherman was spot on, but thankfully this 49ers fan understood the assignment and came ready for the monsoonal conditions.

Heinicke’s Lambeau disappointment

Taylor Heinicke grew up a Green Bay Packers fan, so you can imagine the Washington Redskin quarterback’s excitement after he scored a touchdown against the Packers on Sunday and had the opportunity to celebrate with a famed ‘Lambeau Leap’.

Unfortunately for Heinicke though, the touchdown was disallowed after he was ruled down at the 1-yard line. Awkward.
