Here is everything that happened yesterday in The American Football Conference.
Carolina Panthers at Houston Texans +7.5
This somehow was the most-watched Thursday night game in 3 years.
And we got further proof that the Jets can and will make anybody suck.
CC: Adam Gase
The Panthers beat Texans, 24-9 to advance to 3-0
Darnold: 23/34, 304 YDS, 2 RUSH TDs
Moore: 8 REC, 126 YDS
Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans -4.5
Harold Landry was in the backfield all damn day. Guy continues to be an unblockable menace.
Landry generated a career-high 12 pressures in the Titans 25-16 victory over the Colts. Landry's 37.5% pressure rate is tied for the 3rd-highest in a game in the Next Gen Stats era (min. 30 pass rushes).
Derrick Henry was trucking guys.
The Tennessee D showed up in this one, allowing only 265 net yards against the Colts, the lowest output by a Titans opponent since Giants' 260 on 12/16/2018.
Why did the Colts give up on Jacoby Brissett again? For Carson fuckin Wentz?
Also, Fun Fact - Not only did the Colts lose and fall to 0-3, Carson Wentz - who was uncertain to play - played all 57 snaps. He's played 270-of-276 snaps so far this season (97.8%). Philly owns Indy's first-round pick if Wentz plays 75%.
Washington Football Team at Buffalo Bills -7
Josh Allen silenced critics in this one with 43-21 rout of a pretty good Washington defense.
His receivers were catching everything.
And he was throwing lasers.
In the first half Allen was 22-28, for 270 Total Yards, 3 TDs, and a 141.5 Passer Rating.
He took his foot off the gas in the 2nd half and finished 32/43, a 74.4 Comp %, 358 yds, 5 TD’s, 0 Turnovers, and 0 Sacks.
For Washington, Antonio Gibson looked good (mainly because the Bills STILL CAN'T stop the run), as did their special teams. That's about it.
Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs -7
One of the contenders for game of the day yesterday. Thanks to Justin Herbert's giant brass balls, and his new coach Brandon Staley's equally giant balls.
LA jumped out to a quick lead in this one.
But as always the Chiefs came back and made it a game. Until Mahomes threw another ill-advised pick.
The refs were horrible again this weekend.
Herbert displayed some late-game heroics to seal the win.
Patrick, Patrick, Patrick…
Herbert: 26/38 | 281 YDS | 4 TD
Mahomes: 27/44 | 260 YDS | 3 TD | 2 INT
Fun fact - The Chiefs are 1-12-1 ATS in their last 14 games
Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers -3
Simply put, Big Ben is shot.
Joe Burrow continues to dazzle week to week
If and when the Bengals put a real line in front of this guy they're gonna be dangerous.
New Orleans Saints at New England Patriots -3
The Mac Jones dick suck campaign came to a screeching halt in this one.
But then got back on track
We even had Bill Belichick pulling a Jerry Thornton and spin zoning the shit out of the performance. For a guy that threw compliments towards Tom Brady around like manhole covers for 20 years, am I insane for asking what the fuck is going on around here?
Alvin Kamara went off in this one. He got nine touches in the first 13 plays, including this drive capping td.
He finished the game with 89 yds on 24 carries and one td.
He also got some props from Meek Mill and Lil Baby (who spent the game in Robert Kraft's box) post-game
That td stealing bastard Taysom Hill was also a factor in this one.
This Patriots team is in BIG trouble next weekend when TB12 and Gronk come to town. They're gonna hang 50 on them.
Miami Dolphins at Las Vegas Raiders -3.5
Bizarre play call here
The Raiders allowed Miami to hang around in this one all day.
Brissett refused to give up and will'd Miami into OT.
But the Raiders were just too much.
Derek Carr - 386 YD’s, 2 TD’s
Peyton Barber - 142 YD’s, 1 TD
Bryan Edwards - 89 YD’s
Fun fact- Las Vegas became the first team in NFL history to start 3-0 with all 3 wins over teams that won 10+ games the year before.
New York Jets at Denver Broncos -10.5
Coming into this one people were wondering how the Bronco's were giving anybody 10.5 points.
But we all quickly understood.
The J-e-t-s are so so bad on both sides of the ball.
Zach Wilson continues to unimpress/get his head taken off.
He finished 19/35 for 160 yards, a 54% comp percentage, 0 TDs, 2 INTs, and he was sacked 5 times.
He was under pressure on 16 of his dropbacks against the Broncos. He was 2 of 11 for 35 yards with an INT on those plays.
Chicago Bears at Cleveland Browns -7.5
I'll tell you what sucked the most about this one. We were out in Aurora at Hollywood Casino for the Barstool Sportsbook watch party. Whole gang.
They did an amazing job with the setup. The screens were great, the sound was on point. There was plenty of food and beer. The weather was PERFECT. And it was crazy how many people turned out. The place would have went off if the Bears could have scored. Hell, if they had even performed people would have celebrated. But it was an embarrassment. The highlight of the game, and most cheers came on a pass interference call. Sad.
This one was historic. But not in a good way. In all the worst ways possible for Bears fans.
Not a lot to talk about in this one besides Myles Garrett setting a franchise record for sacks (4.5) in a game.
The Bears D looked very unimpressive
The Bears O line is laughably bad.
Poor Justin Fields is being thrown to wolves in an attempt to save Nagy/Pace's jobs.
Justin Fields' advancement has been incredible. He already sounds like he's been a Bear for years.
Eddie was displeased to put it politely.
