Every week during the NFL season, the 33rd Team will present some of the most interesting Tweets that come across our timeline during Sunday’s action. Here’s the Week 5 rundown:
There have been 18 games with a game-winning score in the final minute of regulation or in overtime this season, the most such games through the first five weeks all-time.

The Cardinals improved to 5-0, but will be heavily tested next week against a Cleveland Browns team that can keep up with anybody.
The Cardinals are 5-0 for the first time in 47 years, and the league's only remaining unbeaten. They go to Cleveland next Sunday. So that'll be fun too.

WOW incredible job by the Browns to lift Ekeler into the end zone!!!! Incredibly poor by the Chargers to run the ball and let that happen, just take a knee and be done with it

Even when the Chargers make a mistake, Brandon Staley seems to be ahead of the curve analytically-speaking.
Genius missing that extra point there by the Chargers. Browns won’t be as aggressive as they would have if it was tied, Chargers likely get the ball back and go win. Staley is just a step ahead

Patriots QB Mac Jones now has 135 completions, tied for the most by any rookie QB in his first five starts in NFL history (Joe Burrow). He’s completing just over 71% of his passes.
Certainly has areas to improve on, but a lot to be impressed by early from him too.

Rondale Moore has been much more than a gadget-guy with Arizona.
Rondale Moore had 114 catches for 1,258 yards with 12 TDs and pretty much single-handedly beat Ohio State as a true freshman
He then had some of the best athletic testing of any WR in NFL history
That’s usually a good combo

I'm all for aggressive 2-pt decisions when appropriate, like when you can bet the game on one when you're the underdog. But in DET's case, there was 37 sec and 2 TOs left for MIN, and by going up 1, DET induces MIN to be much more aggressive on its final drive.

Ja’Marr Chase and Joe Burrow have really picked up where they left off at LSU. Chase is on pace for 78 catches, 15,500 yards and 17 touchdowns through Week 5.
Joe Burrow trusts Ja'Marr Chase to catch anything thrown his way and I dont blame him one bit

If only there was a rule where you could do something on 4th down besides kicking a field goal.
— Lee Sharpe (@LeeSharpeNFL) October 10, 2021
There were an absurd amount of missed kicks in the NFL on Sunday. In the Green Bay v. Cincinnati game alone, there were 5 missed field goals. Overall for the week, there were 13 missed extra points around the league.
There have been a billion missed kicks today
