The Bills will hit a rough patch sometime this season. All teams do. But, dang, they look good. And ready. And mature. And hungry. That D forced Stafford into three picks and sacked him seven times.
That Josh Allen stiff-arm of Rams defender Nick Scott was a seasonal metaphor. Allen and his Bills are going to disdainfully stiff-arm a lot of opponents.
Buffalo was 9-10 on third down and did not punt even one time.
And did you see all of those Bills fans at SoFi? The Mafia travels well!
For the first time in 81 games, Sean McVay’s Rams will enter Week Two under .500.
Where the hell were Allen Robinson and Cam Akers last night?
Dak says not to worry, he just developed a little ankle soreness after wearing new cleats for the first time. I have no reason not to believe him.
That may not be a big deal as we look ahead to Sunday night, but this is one. Bucs’ WR Chris Godwin did not practice Friday as he continues his comeback from last season’s train-wreck knee surgery. Godwin’s presence or absence will weigh heavily on the outcome of this Cowboys-Bucs opener. He says he’ll be a “game time decision.”
I’m eager to see how Quinn Ewers performs against the ‘Bama defense. The Tide will get a boost from the return of TE Cameron Latu, who will play after missing all of preseason drills and last week’s opener against Utah State with an undisclosed illness. Latu caught eight TD passes in 2021.
Next round is on Dabo, who has signed a new 10-year, $115 million contract at Clemson. That’s right up there with the other two members of college football’s coaching Holy Trinity, Saban and Smart.
The Bears say they have no “Plan B,” and are committed to building a state-of-the-art fixed-roof domed stadium in the suburb of Arlington Heights. I have mixed emotions.
The MLB competition committee is set to vote Friday on a series of rules changes. In typical crotchety old man fashion, I’M AGIN’ ALL OF ‘EM! Especially the proposed pitch clock and banning of infield shifts. My view is that a team has nine defenders. Pitcher and catcher have fixed locations, of course, but put the other seven anywhere you want to.
