Week 3 of the NFL season was filled with action.

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker was the big winner of the weekend, setting an NFL record with a game-winning 66-yard field goal to beat the Detroit Lions and further his case as the greatest kicker of all time.

Meanwhile, Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy was a big loser. Take a look below at all the winners and losers from Week 3 of the NFL season.

Justin Tucker is the greatest kicker alive. Against the Lions, he drilled a record-setting 66-yard field goal as time expired to send the Ravens home winners.

Tucker had been teasing his potential for a record-setting kick for years, and when his moment finally came, he was ready.

The New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers will face off in Week 1 of this year’s NFL regular season. And weeks before that kickoff, the team’s two quarterbacks are already competing.

Earlier this month, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wowed fans with an incredible training camp throw — launching the ball deep downfield into a small net.

Today, Saints QB Jameis Winston one-upped that feat. From a similar distance, the former Pro Bowl quarterback perfectly dropped in two passes right behind a soccer goal.

Here are some clips of each training camp performance:

While Winston may have had the last laugh, he still has far more to prove than Rodgers.

The former backup to Drew Brees is currently locked in an intense QB battle with fellow signal caller Taysom Hill. And while Winston posted a slightly better preseason performance earlier this

Winners, losers of Aaron Rodgers’ return to the Green Bay Packers

After months of rampant speculation, linguistic parsing and high-stakes drama with the potential to significantly alter the 2021 NFL season and beyond, Aaron Rodgers is right back where he’s been for the past 16 summers – in Green Bay Packers training camp.

Given what the three-time MVP means to the organization – and Pack brass had made it publicly clear Rodgers wasn’t going anywhere – this always easily seemed like the most likely outcome. Yet the club’s “complicated fella” also rattled his bosses’ cages – along with an entire fan base – while expressing his desire for some environmental alterations.

While careful to say “I’m not a victim here” Wednesday, Rodgers indicated that his situation, financial and otherwise, has not changed significantly. This is to be his second season playing under a four-year, $134 million extension which has no guarantees in 2022 or ’23. He wants to be used as

Aaron Rodgers is back for another round of training camp with the Green Bay Packers, indicating he may stay with his longtime team after all.

After reports of the reigning NFL MVP wanting to leave Wisconsin, Rodgers, 37, was spotted walking into training camp on Tuesday, with the team tweeting out his arrival.

One day earlier, ESPN’s Adam Schefter had reported that Rodgers appeared to be making headway in contract negotiations with the Packers, where he’s played for his entire 16-year professional career. The agreement would include canceling the final year of his contract, making it more likely that the upcoming 2021 season will be his last in Green Bay.

Rodgers was selected by the Packers as the 24th overall pick in the 2005 draft, and has three years remaining on his contract after signing a four-year, $134 million extension in August 2018.
