We look back at Patterson's career day against Washington and the history of players who have made similar transitions. Plus, the best passers, runners, and receivers of Week 4.

Chargers (2-1) on Monday Night Football. Use this thread to discuss them all.

QR Week 2: King Henry Goes Once More Unto the Breach

The Tennessee Titans overcame a big halftime deficit to escape Seattle with an overtime win, and running back Derrick Henry was the key to their comeback. Henry has a reputation for playing better at halftime, but has that really been the case? And do other running backs have a similar knack for playing better late in games? Plus the best passers, runners, and receivers of Week 2.
