Week 9 of the NFL season is in full swing, and there’s plenty to look forward to after a wild trade deadline that shook up rosters across the league, with 20 players traded at or near the cutoff this past Tuesday.
Here are the top plays from Sunday’s action!

Points left on the field

Rams wake up
Stafford hit Cooper Kupp on a deep ball, and the receiver took off for a 69-yard touchdown. The Rams took a 7-3 lead early in the second quarter.
