Eagles defensive coach using a Lb to cover Claypool at the end of the game there is something that should get a coach fired.
The 57 yard FG attempt wasn't too bright, either. The longest FG in Heinz Field history is only 53 yards. It's probably the league's toughest stadium for kicking field goals. I was shocked when I saw them attempt the kick. I figured they would go for it on 4th down.

How bizarre that this happens an hour or so after Alex Smith makes his first appearance in a game since his injury


EDIT: And Russell Wilson proves he's a freaking magician -- 94 yrds with 2 minutes and 1 timeout converting 2 4th downs.

I only watched a little of that Dallas - Giants game, but had the sound muted and was on the phone with my mother when that Prescott injury happened (she had the game on, too). My wife also happened to be in the room at the time. All three of us were affected by that brutal turn of the ankle. You could immediately tell that it was very serious and that Dak's season was over. I just hate to see things like that happen, regardless of which teams I may like or dislike. Hopefully he has a complete recovery.

As soon as saw his leg, I knew he dislocated the ankle because his foot was turned sideways and then I saw the bone sticking out which meant he had a compound fracture. I'm actually surprised such injuries don't occur more often with how big and strong these players are today and how they're tackled to the ground in awkward body positions.

I still don't think my Raiders are nothing more than a 8-8 or 7-9 team, but I'm proud of how they battled a much more talented team. When Carr threw that interception early in the game, I text my brother as to how much of a blowout this game was going to be. However, though, I have some reservations about Carr, he played very well yesterday. Man, that freaking Mahomes is good! The Raiders defensive line doesn't pressure the QB enough, but they had Mahomes running for his life, particularly in the second half. The dude is a magician and the same with Russell Wilson as I watched that game too. They are clearly the two best QB's in the NFL.

I happened to record that game so I went back and looked at the play again. It was still gruesome and hard to watch. They did a couple replays and and showed a closeup of the foot as Zak lay on the ground. That foot and ankle were at angles not meant to happen, but I could see no bone. There was a bulge in his sock that could have been bone that pierced the leg but not the sock.

The Jets have released LeVeon Bell. That signing certainly didn't go well for either party. I wonder if Bell regrets not listening to his agent and accepting the Steelers offer instead of sitting out the season and then ending up signing in NY for less money. I know this Steelers fan is happy that Bell turned them down. The team is better off without him and Antonio Brown in the locker room.

Yes, I think the Steelers are doing just fine. Bell is on his way to becoming toxic to teams, just like Antonio Brown. More attitude than talent.

He just signed with the Chiefs and I expect him to behave himself as he's now with one of the best organizations in the NFL with perhaps the best QB. He could be very useful to Maholmes.

We'll see. Mahomes likes to do a lot of his own running. If Bell's feelings get hurt and he doesn't feel he's being utilized properly, I foresee more passive-aggressive tweeting in his future.
