Another NFL Sunday has come and gone, and that means it is time to crown some social media winners and losers!
First, take a look at last week’s recap featuring Deshaun Watson’s coming out party and Jay Cutler’s attempt at the wildcat.
Alright, now let’s get started with this week’s action.
Loser: Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger
Big Ben put up the worst outing of his career against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday afternoon, throwing FIVE interceptions in a 30-9 loss at home.

And the Jaguars prepare to put the ball into the hands of their best playmaker, Ben Roethlisberger.

Ben Roethlisberger throws one more pick and he gets a free sub.
— Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) October 8, 2017
Are Ben Roethlisberger's 5 picks a distraction? Asking for Antonio Brown.

Did Big Ben retire and not tell the Steelers?

Winner: Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers
If there’s one thing we’ve learned over Aaron Rodgers’ nine seasons as an NFL starter it’s this: Do NOT give the Green Bay Packers QB any amount of time to work with at the end of the game or you WILL get burned.
Rodgers did it again in Dallas, the same place where he won a Super Bowl, leading a game-winning drive to beat the Cowboys 35-31. And the memes were glorious.
Oops, Aaron Rodgers did it again. pic.twitter.com/41Mm7l5MiQ

I wish I could do anything as easily as Aaron Rodgers can score a touchdown w/ under 2 mins left.

Winner: Cleveland Browns rookie Myles Garrett
How can you be a social media winner on a day when your team lost? Well, we grade on a curve here and the 0-5 Cleveland Browns are looking for every ounce of joy they can find.
First-overall draft pick Myles Garrett made his NFL debut Sunday against the New York Jets and recorded a sack on his FIRST-EVER snap.
MYLES GARRETT NO YOU DIDN’T

Lol Myles Garrett.
Good luck, NFL.

myles garrett on pace for about 486 sacks
— Mina Kimes (@minakimes) October 8, 2017
Myles Garrett just did the equivalent of hitting a home run on his first pro at-bat.
— Ben Baby (@Ben_Baby) October 8, 2017
My god, Myles Garrett.
— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 8, 2017
He recorded another sack in the game and celebrated with a tribute to Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith, and got a co-sign from the man himself.
So Myles Garrett is my favorite player ever now https://t.co/tfwLOBfgSB

MYLES GARRETT GOT A SACK AND DID JR SMITH’S CELEBRATION SIGN HIM TO A LIFETIME DEAL
— Jordan Zirm (@clevezirm) October 8, 2017
A budding friendship between Myles Garrett and JR Smith is sure to be the high point of this Browns season
— Bottlegate (@Bottlegate) October 8, 2017
Garrett’s stellar debut had some fans wondering if he could lend his services to the rest of the team.
Put Myles Garrett on offense.
— Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) October 8, 2017
I’m not a football coach, but I would let @MylesLGarrett just play every position and hope for the best. It literally couldn’t be worse.
— Cory O'Connor (@CoryO24) October 8, 2017
Can Myles Garrett play WR?

Loser: NFL fans
The injury bug hit the NFL hard in Week 5.
The New York Giants lost FOUR receivers to injury, and the team’s brightest star Odell Beckham Jr. could be done for the year with a fractured ankle.

In Sunday night’s game, Houston Texans star J.J. Watt had to be carted off the field after going down with a “fractured tibial plateau,” mostly likely ending his season.
When they had to carry JJ Watt off the field I was literally hurting. pic.twitter.com/eEClrRxbKi

Other big names going down included Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion), Texans LB Whitney Mercilus (chest injury), Bills TE Charles Clay (knee injury), Jets RB Bilal Powell (calf injury), Dolphins WR Devante Parker (sprained ankle), Lions QB Matthew Stafford (leg injury), Lions DT Haloti Ngata (elbow injury) and Bengals CB Adam Jones (lower-back injury) and Bengals CB Dre Kirkpatrick (shoulder injury).
If JJ Watt can get hurt. I no longer believe in Karma

Praying for all the guys who went down today. Rough week 5!!!
