The NFL’s mostly hot garbage all around right now, but if you need a reason to watch — we’ve got one.
It’s not even halftime yet, and Hoosier rookie Jordan Howard is tearing up one of the league’s best defenses on Monday Night Football.
This 69-yard run (nice) got things started.

With around 5 minutes to go to halftime, he’s the game’s leading rusher and receiver. The line so far: 9 rushes, 79 yards and a touchdown on the ground, with 3 catches for 38 yards in the air.
Have yourself a night, Jordan. We’ll keep this updated as the highlights mount.
