Tyler Davis made his first career tackle (at any level) on Sunday on special teams as he plays for the second-straight week as a member of the Green Bay Packers. The Packers went on to win in a thriller 25-22 over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Despite a tough 38-20 loss to the Bills, Harrison Butker went 2-for-2 on field goals and 2-for-2 on PATs for the Kanas City Chiefs on Sunday. Butker also boomed five kickoffs for five touchbacks on the day. Tight end Darren Waller’s Raiders also lost on Sunday 20-9 to the Chicago Bears, while Waller had four receptions for 45 yards total.
