The Cleveland Indians have been hot — they’ve won 21 straight games, which sets an American League record, and ties the MLB record.
It also matches the amount of games the Cleveland Browns have won over several years:
Unfortunately, the injury appears to be to his right leg, the same leg he suffered an ACL tear in back in 2015, a season he missed in its entirety. Nelson earned the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award for 2016 after returning from said injury and grabbing 97 receptions, 1,257 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns.
Nelson suffered the injury in the first quarter and was not targeted prior to the injury. He and Randall Cobb are the Packers’ top receivers, with Nelson catching seven passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Nelson, 32, has been considered somewhat injury prone later in his career. He was a second-round pick by the Packers in 2008 and has spent his entire career with the team.
It’s a good sign for New York that the team was able to get its offense chugging for a couple minutes there, but this was a missed opportunity after getting so close to the end zone.

Lions 17, Giants 7: Matt Prater needed his kick to go 56 yards for a field goal late in the second quarter. He got there, but it was as close as you could possibly imagine. The ball bounced off the crossbar and squeaked through by that much.
Somehow, he managed to do this (and hit a 58-yarder last week) without his regular holder, too.
