It was a rather eventful Sunday at MetLife Stadium, with the Carolina Panthers jumping to a 35-7 lead against the New York Giants, only to allow 28 straight points . . . then kick a winning field goal as time expired.

The players went back-and-forth all game, with Beckham being flagged three times for unsportsmanlike conduct but surprisingly escaping ejection.

The Thursday Night Football game between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions, well, it had a finish.

Others also didn't agree with the call, whether or not they were happy about it:

Then there were the Lions fans:

And let's not forget the other Packers fans and/or people who were just blown away by the whole thing:

The Dallas Cowboys are 2-5, but they've been missing some key players -- perhaps none more important than Tony Romo.

Does that mean the quarterback's return -- he's eligible to play Nov. 22 -- will make a big difference for Dallas? Despite their poor record, they are only 1.5 games behind the 4-4 New York Giants.

SportsNation hosts Marcellus Wiley and Max Kellerman discussed the issue on today's show. Now it's your turn to decide.

With the NBA preseason nearly done but still time to kill before the first official tipoff, NBA players are now turning their minds to the important questions.

Specifically:

Our money would be on the 37-year-old German, whose sport forces him to run more than the 39-year-old Denver Broncos quarterback.

And we just might get to find out! Or at least Chandler Parsons and Von Miller are trying to make it so:
