In 18 minutes Sunday, he had 61. That’s what going up against the Patriots’ defense can do for a role-player wideout.
The Patriots adjusted, however, giving hope these plucky visitors can escape a showdown with the Jets with a road win. Malcolm Butler intercepted McCown with under a minute remaining to end a potential New York scoring drive and give New England new life. From there, Brady led the Pats 63 yards in 26 seconds to reset the game at 14-14 — a drive highlighted by a 42-yard bomb to new favorite target Brandin Cooks.
My favorite part of these weekly videos is finding excellent blocks by skill position players. And we found another one by Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. The last time, JuJu knocked down a safety in the hole of a counter run. This past weekend, he helps a tight end knock down a defensive end on a goal-line run. This is beautiful from a receiver. I love it
Finally, we end in Dallas with the Los Angeles Rams. I can’t see the number on this receiver, but bravo, sir. Long runs/passes often turn into touchdowns when receivers throw blocks like this. The Dallas defender had no idea what was coming.
There’s not much to like about the Tennessee-Miami matchup (Matt Cassel vs. Jay Cutler, yikes) but the mix of Dolphin teal and Titan sky blue is incredibly soothing to me. Stop the game and make them do tai chi on TV, I’ll be perfectly centered.
Carson Wentz has thrown three touchdowns in the first quarter, and Philly leads Arizona 21-0. In the seven other games being played, only three teams have managed even a single touchdown.
If the Titans want to become the most intimidating team in the NFL, they should talk to this person and hire them to be the team’s newest mascot. This isn’t specifically for the month of October either. Being scary for just a month is easy. The Titans should invite this Troll Doll from the underground to the NFL Draft. That will be frightening.
