Miles Garrett is lucky to be alive. He’s even luckier that he will be able to play Sunday against the Chargers, less than two weeks after the car crash that could have taken his life and that of a passenger. Slow down, Garrett!
I like this about Packers coach Matt LeFleur. He despises this London bullshit almost as much as I do.
You know what distinguishes this season’s Patriots team? Absolutely nothing. And I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
If there’s such a thing as a Must Win Game for an NFL team in Week Five, it’s what the 1-3 Saints are facing Sunday against the Seahawks. Andy Dalton gets the start in place of the injured Jameis.
Bengals-Ravens will be Sunday’s best game.
I’m not sure what I think yet about Cowboys-Rams, which is why I will hold off on that discussion until Sunday morning in this space.
Who leaked that video of Draymond Green punching out teammate Jordan Poole in practice? Wudden me…
Until Friday night, FBS teams were 0-129 this season when trailing by 19 or more points in the fourth quarter. That was until Houston hung 26 fourth-quarter points on Memphis to erase a 19-point deficit and beat Memphis 33-32. Nicely done, Coogs.
C’mon, NFL. No more foot-dragging on making the concussion protocol more stringent. Get it done. Today. Saturday.So that it will be in place tomorrow, Sunday.
Yeesh. That was a bad late blowup Cards on the first day of the new and expanded MLB playoffs. That means the careers of Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina could end today in St. Loo.
You know what I really liked about the Guardians’ Game One win over the Rays? The game took two hours and 17 minutes. Time is money, man!
