Elsewhere in the NFL, the Chiefs held off the Broncos as Russell Wilson left the game with a scary-looking head injury and the Eagles destroyed the Giants, earning a playoff berth in the process.. PLUS: Retired 50-year-old former NHL star Jaromir Jagr had to suit up for the hockey team he owns after an illness swept through the dressing room.

- They're chanting Purdy, by the way. Brock Purdy chance and Santa Clara.

- Feel like I'm in the scene of "Rudy."

MINTY BETS: If you haven't heard about the last pick of the entire 2022 draft, Brock Purdy, then you probably live under a rock.

- That's me!

MINTY BETS: And with Tom Brady and the Bucs in town, Brock was as cool as a cucumber. Mr. Irrelevant threw a pair of touchdowns and it moved his dad to tears. But according to this Adam Schefter tweet, Brock's family planned to travel to this game well in advance to see Tom Brady.

- They did what?

MINTY BETS: So maybe Brock's dad was actually crying because Brady was getting his ass kicked so badly


I mean, how else would you describe a 35-7 beatdown? It wasn't all sunshine and roses in San Francisco, though. Star receiver Deebo Samuel was carted off the field just before halftime, but it does seem like Samuel may have avoided a major injury. First, Trey Lance, then Jimmy G, and now Deebo-- I wouldn't blame 49ers fans if they thought the team was cursed this season.

- We're cursed!

MINTY BETS: The Chiefs beat the Broncos no surprise there--

- Well, obviously.

MINTY BETS: --except it wasn't quite that straightforward. After jumping out to a 27-0 lead, Russell Wilson led the Broncos back, cutting the lead to 27-21 at one point. But down two scores in the fourth quarter Russ suffered a frightening head injury and was immediately removed from the game. He was out like a light and got this lump on his head. So game over, right?

- Wrong.

MINTY BETS: Jerry Jeudy caught his third touchdown from backup Brett Rypien to make it 34-28, but Casey managed to hold on for the win. And Travis Kelce made some history, too, becoming the fifth tight end in NFL history to get 10,000 career receiving yards.

The Chiefs keep rolling along. And maybe they'll meet the Eagles in the Super Bowl, because Philly is looking great. They destroyed the Giants 48-22 to secure a playoff spot with a 13-1 record.

This is something out of a Hollywood movie. Former NHL star Jaromir Jagr is 50 years old, retired, and owns his own hockey team in the Czech Extraliga, the Kladno Knights.

- That's nice.

MINTY BETS: And illness hit his team hard leaving very few players available. So younger did what any former star who owns a team would do, he suited up.

- Come again.

MINTY BETS: And the 50-year-old wasn't half bad. Sure, his team lost 7-3, but Jagr bagged a pair of assists in 15 minutes of action. I just want to know when Jagr is going to join the cast of the "Expendables" they're all geriatric action heroes, so he would fit right in.
