Following a World Series that defied everything we know about home-field advantage, order appears to have been restored to the universe in one fell swoop.

What happened: On Sunday, NFL home teams not only won all 11 games, but they also went 11-0 against the spread. (Meanwhile, the Texans beat the Jaguars in London).

Ravens (6-2) def. Patriots (8-1), 37-20

  • MVP: Lamar Jackson, QB, BAL: 17/23, 163 yds, 1 TD; 16 car, 61 yds, 2 TD (28.6 fantasy points, per standard ESPN scoring)
  • What they're saying: "The Patriots defense got its first real test ... and they didn't fail as much as the Ravens passed with flying colors." (Danny Heifetz, The Ringer)

Chiefs (6-3) def. Vikings (6-3), 26-23

  • MVP: Tyreek Hill, WR, KC: 1 car, 5 yds; 6 rec, 140 yds, 1 TD (20.5 pts)
  • Highlight: Chiefs RB Damien Williams took it 91 yards to the house, but the most impressive part of the play was Hill running 22.64 mph to catch up with him.

Chargers (4-5) def. Packers (7-2), 26-11

  • MVP: Melvin Gordon, RB, LAC: 20 car, 80 yds, 2 TD; 3 rec, 29 yds (22.9 pts)
  • Been a while: The Chargers beat the Packers for just the second time in 12 meetings and the first time since 1984, the same year Ronald Reagan was re-elected.

Bills (6-2) def. Redskins (1-8), 24-9

  • MVP: Josh Allen, QB, BUF: 14/20, 160 yds, 1 TD; 8 car, 12 yds, 1 TD (17.6 pts)
  • Fun fact: 12.5% of yesterday's starting QBs were Allens (Josh in Buffalo, Kyle in Carolina and Brandon in Denver,) and they all won! It was the biggest day for same-name QBs since Week 17 of the 2016 season, when six Matts started.

Dolphins (1-7) def. Jets (1-7), 26-18

  • MVP: Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, MIA: 24/36, 288 yds, 3 TD (23.7 pts)
  • Food for thought: The Dolphins are 1-7 and thrilled because they're "tanking." The Jets are 1-7 and miserable because they're just ... bad. Bottom line: Expectations are everything, and there's nothing worse (for fans or players) than a team with no direction.

Seahawks (7-2) def. Bucs (2-6), 40-34 (OT)

  • MVP: Russell Wilson, QB, SEA: 29/43, 5 TD; 1 car, 21 yds (39.2 pts)
  • The actual MVP: Heading into the weekend, Aaron Rodgers (+225) was the MVP frontrunner, per Bovada, followed closely by Wilson (+275). Safe to say they'll swap positions this week.

Broncos (3-6) def. Browns (2-6), 24-19

Panthers (5-3) def. Titans (4-5), 30-20

  • MVP: Christian McCaffrey, CAR, RB: 24 car, 146 yds, 2 TD; 3 rec, 20 yds, 1 TD (34.6 pts)
  • Fun fact: McCaffrey is the first player with multiple games of 150 scrimmage yards and 3 TD in a single season since Darren McFadden (woah, haven't heard that name in a while) in 2010.

Raiders (4-4) def. Lions (3-4-1), 31-24

  • MVP: Josh Jacobs, RB, OAK: 28 car, 120 yds, 2 TD (24 pts)
  • Fun fact: Jacobs (740 yards) has already broken Hall of Famer Marcus Allen's single-season rushing record for a Raiders rookie.

Steelers (4-4) def. Colts (5-3), 26-24

  • MVP: Chris Boswell, K, Steelers: 4/4 FG (long 51), 2/2 XP (14 pts)
  • Poor guy: NFL legend Adam Vinatieri cost the Colts a likely win for the second time this year (as in, they'd be 7-1 if he hadn't missed kicks he usually makes).

Eagles (5-4) def. Bears (3-5), 22-14

  • MVP: Zach Ertz, TE, PHI: 9 rec, 103 yds, 1 TD (16.3 pts)
  • Not great: Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky has failed to throw a TD pass in 22 of the 24 quarters he's completed and has yet to pass for more than 260 yards in a game. He also has a grand total of 31 yards rushing. The struggle is real.

Texans (6-3) def. Jaguars (4-5), 26-3

  • MVP: Deshaun Watson, QB, HOU: 22/28, 201 yds, 2 TD; 7 car, 37 yds (19.7 pts)
  • What to watch: Minshew Mania might have ended in London. The rookie had the worst start of his career and Nick Foles should be healthy after the bye week.

Carbon Health's CEO on unsticking the vaccine bottleneck

President Biden has said that getting Americans vaccinated for COVID-19 is his administration’s top priority given an initial rollout plagued by organizational, logistical and technical glitches.

Axios Re:Cap digs into the bottlenecks and how to unclog them with Carbon Health chief executive Eren Bali, whose company recently began helping to manage vaccinations in Los Angeles.

Biden administration unveils plan to combat domestic extremism

White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced at a briefing on Friday that the Biden administration will roll out a three-pronged interagency plan to assess and combat the threat posed by domestic violent extremism.

Why it matters: The federal government's approach to domestic extremism has come under scrutiny in the wake of the Jan. 6 attacks on the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob. In his inaugural address, Biden repudiated political extremism, white supremacy and domestic terrorism, vowing to defeat them.
