Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett posted a letter to his Twitter account Wednesday afternoon detailing an encounter he had with police in Las Vegas last month. In it, Bennett wrote an officer “placed his gun near my head and warned me that if I moved he would “blow my f—ing head off.” You can read his full letter below, but WARNING: It contains explicit language.
Whatever decision is made at quarterback, the offensive line remains broken and the depth chart compromised. That makes for a volatile mix liable to explode with additional agitation.
“No, I’m not waiting to have that conversation,” Savage said. “I don’t think he (O’Brien) owes either of us any explanation. We just have to be ready. That’s called being a professional.”
The Bengals aren’t in the position to scoff at the Texans’ struggles. In absorbing a home shutout loss to the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati mustered a measly 221 total yards on 58 plays.
The Jets face an uphill climb to be respectable.
New York couldn’t run and couldn’t stop the run, which were supposed to be two of the team’s strengths.
The running back tandem of Bilal Powell and Matt Forte combined for 38 yards rushing. The defense gave up 190 yards rushing, including 110 to LeSean McCoy, who consistently beat New York’s defenders around the edge.
“Missed assignments. Missed assignments,” coach Todd Bowles said, repeating the Cheap Jerseys Cn phrase on several occasions. “We’re not going to hang our heads. We’re going to get ready and not make the Cheap Jerseys China same mistakes next week.”
The NFL has fought doggedly to preserve the six-game suspension Roger Goodell issued to Ezekiel Elliott.

And then Thursday night happened, when Kansas City hung 42 on New England.
That 42-27 win wasn’t driven by pick-sixes or fluky special teams plays that FPI sees as minimally predictive. No, it was a traditional offensive beatdown.
Quarterback Alex Smith chucked a couple deep touchdowns and was ruthlessly efficient with his usual short passes, altogether earning him a Total QBR of 91.8 for the game, second-best of Week 1. Passing plays that involved receiver Tyreek Hill were overwhelmingly positive. And while the ground attack didn’t add much from an expected points standpoint, rookie running back Kareem Hunt proved to be an asset in the passing game.
The Chiefs’ offense’s unit efficiency — a clutch-weighed version of expected points per play — was second-best in the league in Week 1, behind only the Vikings. That was pretty meaningful given that Cheap Jerseys China heading into the contest FPI considered the Kansas City to have the 10th-best offense compared to the Patriots’ second-best Cheap High Quality NFL Jerseys defense in the NFL (although it downgraded the Patriots’ defense all the way to 16th after Week 1).
What’s more, Kansas City accomplished all that on the road.
