WATCH: Tenessee Titans LB Sean Spence Blows Up Raiders RB DeAndre Washington

The Oakland Raiders are supposed to be one of those teams that could break out this year and actually be competitive. If that is going to be the case, the Raiders quarterback can't throw passes to guys who are moments from being lit up--like he did here to rookie running back DeAndre Washington.

To make matters worse, the fumble gets returned or a touchdown:

WATCH: New York Jets QB Christian Hackenburg Throws Nice Touchdown Pass On First NFL Drive

The football loving free world assumed the New York Jets took Christian Hackenberg in the second round of the draft to eventually groom him to be the man. But then word made it to the press after he didn't play in the Jets first two preseason games that his throwing motion was terrible and needed some serious work.

They must have done some great work the last couple of weeks because he finished off his firs NFL drive with a heck of nice 10-yard touchdown pass:

My knee hurts just watching this!

WATCH: Robert Griffin III And Josh Gordon Hook Up On Pair Of Deep Bombs

The football-loving free world has been wondering what Josh Gordon will look like when he finally steps back onto the game field. They've heard about his effortless grabs in practice, but practice is just practice. Anyone can look good in practice. But what about against an actual opponent?

As it turns out, he still has it:

WATCH: Chicago Bears QB Connor Shaw Suffers Broken Leg Against Kansas City Chiefs

The Chicago Bears will no longer have to worry about having to figure out which quarterback they are going to cut when it comes time to let players go. Why not?

Apparently, it broke right above the ankle:

Carlos Gomez was terrible at the plate this season for the Houston Astros. His batting average was below .200 for much of the season, and when they finally let him go it was just .210. The Texas Rangers decided they would be willing to give him a shot, and in his first at-bat with his new club, he made them glad he did.

With a nice three-run homer:
