What’s the number one point from the third week of the NFL? These new look Los Angeles Chargers have exactly what you need to beat the Kansas City Chiefs: guts. Infinite supply of guts.
Chargers coach Brandon Staley understands that you risk yourself against these chiefs. Moving the clock is also an ancient concept that leads to your death. When it comes to the attacks of Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid, and the Chiefs of this Jaguar Note, all the wisdom of traditional football pops out of the window. But at last it looks like AFC West coaches, quarterbacks and teams understand it all.
Starry frequently called Passray early and late, and his quarterback Justin Herbert achieved 281 yards in 26 out of 38 passes without four touchdowns and interceptions. These Chargers surprised the Chiefs of Kansas City, Missouri, ages 30-24, and proved not to be the old, signed Chargers.
At a post-match press conference, Starley said, “Whenever you make this historic attack, you need to be proactive when playing against the three historic players in the game. Yes. Not reckless. But you have to be aggressive. “
Even if the Chargers were 14 points behind in the first half, it seems that Mahomes had enough time to cast the spell. That’s what happened in the third quarter when Mahomes threw two consecutive touchdown passes to give the Chiefs a 17-14 lead. The drama was booming when the Chiefs scored with an 8-yard shovel pass to Mecole Hardman and took the lead of 24-21 with 6 minutes and 48 seconds remaining.
And the charger punched back. First, Herbert ordered a 10-play, 69-yard drive to be tied at 24. At that time, Mahomes made another groundbreaking error, just a week after his high sales lost to Baltimo Ravens.His third and eighth capsizes of tight-end Travis Kelce Intercepted by Alohi Gilman With less than two minutes left on the Chargers’ 41-yard line.
Herbert, 23, has returned to work. Third and second in that first downset, he stride fired a 15-yard player to Keenan Allen.
With 48 seconds remaining in 4th and 4th, Starry won by bypassing the 47-yard field goal attempt. And was Rashawn Slater flagged for a false start when his rookie left the tackle? Staley continued to attack in the 4th and 9th fields. again, guts.. Herbert uncorked another fastball to receiver Jalen Guyton, and Chiefs cornerback Dee Baker was flagged for interference. The coach and quarterback aren’t over yet. When the clock reaches 41 seconds and the ball hits the 20-yard line in Kansas City, most teams settle on the field goal.
That’s a safe call. That is, in most cases the correct call.
Not against the Chiefs.
Herbert threw a perfect 16-yard pass to out-of-bound Mike Williams and lofted Williams a 4-yard score 1-10 with 32 seconds remaining. Even CBS analyst Tony Romo scolded the Chargers for spending too much time leaving Mahomes.
Of course, the charger proved to be correct.
The previous league MVP scrambled 21 yards and his last Hale Mary was missing.
Many things may have gone wrong for the Chargers to go to that touchdown — but Starry was right to get the Chiefs to the length of the field. His decision to move to 4th and 4th, and 4th and 9th, shows the new fearlessness of the Chiefs’ magic. This was the week after Ravens coach John Harbaugh played for a win against Kansas City in the second week, and both coaches certainly remember what happened in the AFC playoffs a year ago.
Browns coach Kevin Stefanski headed for the Chiefs in the 22-17 division round and chose to punt from his 32 yard line to 4th and 9th with 4:19 remaining. Browns never touched the ball again.
In the AFC title game, Bills coach Sean McDermott chose to reduce Buffalo’s deficit to 21-12 by kicking a field goal from Kansas City’s two-yard line at the end of the first half. And later in the game, McDermott scored another field goal on the fourth down from the Chiefs’ 8-yard line. The bill was blown off at 38-24.
Both are perfect coaches to build long-term winners.
Both made serious mistakes.
Starry didn’t have to play safely. He has a quarterback that allows him to trade haymaking for Mahomes.
This rivalry will be a lot of fun.
Josh Allen is ok.
Buffalo Nian overcomes the same fear of “we can’t have good things” every year. In the end, we think everything should go wrong. That’s why western New York remains scared even after Josh Allen finished second in last season’s MVP Awards vote and Bills won his first division title since 1995.
With his first week’s defeat to Pittsburgh, Allen looked like his raw rookie from Wyoming.
He didn’t look that good in Miami’s second week’s rout.
3rd week? Allen included the Washington Football Team with a 43-21 victory. With three touchdown passes to build a 21-0 lead at the beginning of the second quarter, Allen thought Bills deserved a six-year $ 258 million deal this offseason, a pinpoint thrower. It looked like.
He rolled to the right and threw a 28-yard pass to Emmanuel Sanders, a wide receiver in the end zone, to win Buffalo’s first drive.
Allen didn’t panic on Bills’ third drive when Washington’s defensive harness Daron Pain put pressure on the Red Zone. 3rd and 4th from Washington’s 7-yard line, Allen shimmered to the right and hit Zack Moss’ running back with a touchdown pass.
When Jordan Poyer subsequently intercepted Taylor Heinicke in Washington and gave Bills a short field, Allen found a tight-end Dawson Knox back shoulder with a score of 14 yards. The placement of the balls was perfect.
Washington cut Bills’ lead to 21-14 in the second quarter, scoring a quick score, but Buffalo scored five of the last seven possessions and choked the threat with an attack. .. Allen was as accurate as ever, throwing 358 yards, four touchdowns, without a 129.8 passer rating pick.
With the Bills pass game in 2020, everything has become much easier. Since Jim Kelly in the early 1990s, locals couldn’t expect good things to happen in the second half of the fourth quarter, not bad things.
The two-week short circuit brought back an imminent sense of ruin. Sunday’s victory, like Stephen Diggs, brought recognition that Allen was in the best condition when dealing with receivers like Emmanuel Sanders pulled with two touchdown catches across the field. ..
The Vikings are not dead yet.
When everything is perfect around Kirk Cousins in the quarterback, he opens up the defense.
Things aren’t perfect in Minnesota, but cousins look more agile in their pockets than ever before and are more accurate than simply throwing them at the most talented person surrounded by attacks.
As a result, these Minnesota Vikings (1-2) defeated the Seahawks (1-2) 30-17, showing signs of life.
Throughout the three games, his cousin passed 918 yards, had eight touchdowns, zero intercepts, and was fired only five times.
Seattle had no answer to Minnesota’s attack — even if Dalvin Cook was on the sidelines — and this time Russell Wilson couldn’t get together.
The pressure didn’t seem to care a little about my cousin. Undoubtedly at his best throw (third and fifth conversions with eight minutes remaining), he faded backwards enough to avoid an untouched linebacker and made a 15-yard pass to KJ Osborne on the crossing route. I handed it over.
It was a kind of throw that my cousin rarely saw in his career, but what if he could defeat such an electric shock? This Viking attack will continue to roll.
The Steelers may have made a bad bet.
This was a big risk for the Pittsburgh Steelers towards 2021. They weren’t interested in a complete rebuild, so they welcomed 39-year-old Ben Roethlisberger to the department with Raymer Jackson (24), Baker. Mayfield (26) and Joe Burrow (24) are other starters.
Pittsburgh is confident that with plenty of defense and ample ground games, the team that started 11-0 in 2020 will be able to reappear as a candidate for the Super Bowl. It may still be the case. Pittsburgh kicked off the 2021 season with a spectacular victory at Buffalo. But on Sunday, we learned that this would be a very difficult bet to survive another full season.
Cincinnati Bengals, the eternal gateway mat for AFC North, rushed to Heinz Field to dominate and win Pittsburgh 24-10.
Barrow, a second-year quarterback trying to get out of last season’s knee injury, finished with a 14-18 passer rating of 122.9 at 172 yards. The Steelers’ talented secondary struggled to catch up with Barrow, who caught two of the three touchdown passes, and former Louisiana teammate Jammer Chase.
Roethlisberger threw the ball 58 times ridiculously. This is about 38 times more than Mike Tomlin probably wanted. Nagy Harris, a running back drafted in the first round to change the spirit of this attack, couldn’t dominate the front as it did in Alabama, and the remade Steelers line may have something to do with it. Hmm.
Pittsburgh couldn’t get off early and play a run game to control the clock, and he would have to wonder if Roethlisberger could catch up with this division.
A little about other games on Sunday
Ravens 19, Lions 17: The kicker is important. A 66-yard field goal that won the Justin Tucker game showed that he was probably the most clutch kicker of his generation. But don’t forget the one that set the longest kick in NFL history: Lamar Jackson’s 36-yard strike to Sammy Watkins is the fourth and 19th from his own 16-yard line.
Cardinal 31, Jaguar 19: It wasn’t cute. The Cardinals’ attempt at a 68-yard field goal was badly backfired in the form of a 109-yard touchdown return. But Arizona certainly lacked the ugly victory of last season. The Cardinal was 3-0 for the first time since 2015 and should not be apologized.
Saint 28, Patriot 13: If Mac Jones needs to throw 51 times per game, like Sunday, the Patriots won’t win much. The play script left New England at home, and of course Jameis Winston offered a touchdown pass that only he could do.
Falcons 17, Giants 14: Good news: Saquon Barkley recorded the first touchdown since 2019. Bad thing: everything else. Berkeley manages 3.2 yards per carry against the unfortunate Falcons, Daniel Jones is average and the Giants are 0-3.
Titans 25, Colts 16: Colts quarterback Carson Wentz sprained two sprained ankles and played two sprained ankles like a quarterback. He never ran the ball, threw it away several times, and Titan rolled despite three turnovers. The Tennessee attack proved that Derrick Henry and Julio Jones were talented enough to win without scoring.
Browns 26, Bears 6: Chicago fans wanted to see Justin Fields. They got Justin Fields. Former Ohio State University stars have come a long way, especially on this roster. Fields completed only 6 times throughout the game, but was fired 9 times (4.5 times by Myles Garrett), for a total of 15 hits.
Broncos 26, Jets 0: It’s hard to tell exactly how good this Broncos team is until they play the Chargers or Chiefs, but it’s undeniable that the defense will definitely give Denver a shot against Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert.
Rams 34, Buccaneers 24: This Sean McVay-Matthew Stafford knew there was potential, but few predicted that it would be ready to defeat Bacchus’ defense early in the season. Stafford completed 27 of his 38 passes at 343 yards, four touchdowns, no picks, and was fired only once.
Raiders 31, Dolphin 28 (Overtime): Dolphins made it interesting, but acknowledged Jon Gruden and quarterback Derek Carr for finding a way to win another close quarters battle. Undoubtedly, there is currently no better quarterback than the car and the Raiders are 3-0.
Packers 30, 49ers 28: Even the slightest mistake will result in the team playing against determined Aaron Rodgers. Jimmy Garoppolo is thinking of snapping the ball with less than a minute left in the fourth quarter and 12 seconds left on the play clock. Sure, the 49ers recorded the play, but the Rodgers had enough time to put the packers in the field goal range, even if there were no time-outs left. With two passes to the 25-yard and 17-yard Davante Adams, everything was done.
