The 10 Most Impactful Plays of Week 8

The Denver Broncos' secondary punished San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers on Sunday, helping the Broncos get a divisional win.

In my experience, there are two different ways to be tired. The first is a bone-weary feeling of utter exhaustion and almost a sense of loss: you put the entirety of your energy and effort into something, and now it’s done or gone. This way is a bummer, but we’ve all been there.

The second is to feel completely drained, achy, and you can’t think straight, but knowing that you’ve accomplished something awesome. That is one of the most rewarding feelings on the planet.

We should all feel this way after yet another impressive -- yet emotionally taxing -- week in the NFL. Week 8 has come and gone, and with it another outpouring of adrenaline as we saw some cinematic twists and turns in the flow of games this weekend. Yet another Tuesday is here, and with it another chance to see which plays were the most impactful.
