Anyone who missed Pat Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs 40 — can take solace in kn
And no one, except for players on other AFC teams, would be disappointed if Jan. 20 brings the world Patriots vs. Chiefs II, with a conference title and Super Bowl berth at stake.“I’m sure,” Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower said about Mahomes, “we’ll probably the Game of the Season — Tom Brady and the New England Patriots 43 Montee Ball Color Rush Jersey see him down the road.”Brady’s take on the KC QB who gave coach Bill Belichick’s defense all it could handle?“Big play after big play.”That’s an apt description of the whole contest Sunday night.“It was a spectacle, that’s for sure,” Patriots receiver Josh Gordon said.Just the sort of thing the NFL wants nowadays.Supremacy of offense.All attention on the passers and their targets.Plenty of points and ever-increasing fantasy numbers.Brady was 24 for 35 for 340 yards, one TD pass, one TD run, and a 39-yard completion to tight end Rob Gronkowski, whose 500th catch in the league set up Stephen Gostkowski’s go-ahead field goal on the final play. That came after Mahomes — 23 for 36 for 352 yards, four touchdown passes, a pair of picks — found Tyreek Hill for a tying 75-yard score.The Chiefs (5-1) came back after trailing 24-9 at halftime.The Patriots (4-2 and winners of three in a row) kept responding to every score Mahomes generated down the stretch.The teams combined for 30 points in the fourth quarter alone.It was back-and-forth. It was electrifying. It was memorable.It was the 200th career regular-season victory for the 41-year-old Brady, a record for a starting quarterback.It was the first career loss as an NFL starter for the 23-year-old Mahomes, who suddenly has become a bona fide star.“He’s young,” said Hightower Drew Bledsoe Jersey , who had an early interception, “but he definitely doesn’t show it.”In case you missed it, here are other top topics after the NFL season’s sixth Sunday:BACK TO THE BOOTH?Jon Gruden’s return to the sideline from the TV booth continues to be an unmitigated disaster — on the field and off. His Oakland Raiders dropped to 1-5 by putting up little resistance in a 27-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. No one in the 32-team NFL has a worse record than the Raiders, whose only victory came against the Cleveland Browns. And no one has a worse point differential than Oakland, which has been outscored by 66 points after merely six games. There’s more, too. Gruden has been blasted for trading away elite linebacker Khalil Mack and had to answer questions after Sunday’s setback about a report that receiver Amari Cooper is available now.SAD SACKNever a good thing when a QB’s completion count is exceeded by the number of times he’s sacked, but that’s exactly what happened to Marcus Mariota in the Tennessee Titans’ 21-0 loss to Terrell Suggs and the Baltimore Ravens. Suggs had one of Baltimore’s 11 sacks, one shy of the NFL record. Mariota went 10 for 15 for 117 yards. “I can do a better job of stepping up in the pocket,” Mariota said. “I put our guys in a bad spot, trying to run around too much.”‘WE WANT DALLAS!’That was the familiar chant heard at Washington’s home stadium as its 23-17 victory over Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers wound down. The Redskins (3-2) host the NFC East rival Cowboys (3-3) next week, and the matchup becomes a lot more intriguing thanks to what happened Sunday. Coaches Jay Gruden and Jason Garrett both were heavily criticized recently. Washington’s defense and Dallas’ offense were coming off problematic performances. And those units were both what generated victories, including Dak Prescott’s two-TD-pass, 82-yard-rushing showing as the Cowboys beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 40-7.CATCH AS CATCH CANNo NFL team wanted Adam Thielen coming out of college. And no NFL player ever started a season quite the way the Vikings‘ undrafted receiver has this one. With 11 catches for 123 yards and a score in Minnesota’s 27-17 win against the Arizona Cardinals, Thielen raised his total to 58 catches, a league record through a half-dozen games. He’s also the first player in 57 years with at least 100 receiving yards in each of his club’s first six games. ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — A massive front five should help Georgia adjust to some dramatic changes on offense.The projected starters on No. 3 Georgia’s offensive line in Saturday’s opener against Austin Peay have an average weight of more than 320 pounds. Four of the five are 6-foot-5 or taller.Elijah Holyfield, one of the tailbacks looking to replace 2017 seniors Sony Michel and Nick Chubb Lawrence Guy Jersey Black Friday , says the line forms a beautiful mountain of red jerseys.“They open big holes so I love them,” Holyfield said last week. “They’re super big. They cover people up. It’s almost a running back’s dream. When you’re running, you don’t see nothing but your guys.” D’Andre Swift is expected to open the season as the starting tailback. Holyfield, Brian Herrien and freshman James Cook are among the other options.Georgia’s only lost starter on the offensive line from 2017 was significant. Left tackle Isaiah Wynn, the No. 23 overall pick in this year’s NFL draft by the New England Patriots, was the line’s leader.The offense lost Wynn, Michel, Chubb and wide receiver Javon Wims in the draft. The huge line is expected to help Georgia’s hopes for a smooth transition.When center Lamont Gaillard glances in one direction, he sees right guard Ben Cleveland (6-6, 335) and right tackle Isaiah Wilson (6-7, 340).“Obviously we’re both big and strong,” Cleveland said. “That right side can be something special. … I feel like as long as we continue to work together we can be unstoppable as a front five.”Left tackle Andrew Thomas (6-5, 320) and left guard Kendall Baker (6-6, 305) also are expected to start.Perhaps the best news for Georgia is that some of those projected starters have been pushed by a similarly strong second unit during preseason practice. That competition could continue into the season.Georgia hasn’t named starters or released a depth chart this week, so there could be changes even for the first series of plays on Saturday.“The offensive line competition has probably been the most heated, maybe other than receiver, that we’ve had ,” coach Kirby Smart said Monday. “And I think a lot of that has to do with the recruiting and having good quality players.”Gaillard (6-2, 308) has seen the line grow each year. Smart has delivered on his pledge to add improved size, strength and depth on the unit.“That definitely shows what we’re doing in recruiting around here,” Gaillard said. “Kirby Smart has definitely done a great job with that. That just shows the process with everyone wanting to come to Georgia.” Quarterback Jake Fromm (6-2, 220) said he isn’t worried about twin towers on each side of the line obstructing his view. He said it’s much better to have the protection provided by the big, tall blockers.“I’ve got some big guys up there who can definitely keep me safe enough and keep me standing up, too,” Fromm said. “As far as seeing, it’s really no difference whether they’re 6-2 or 6-7 like they are. … You find a way.”Cleveland, expected to play tackle when he signed in 2016, moved into the lineup at guard for the last five games last season. It was a stabilizing move for the line and helped set the foundation for this season.Another key was Gaillard’s emergence as a leader.“I’ll tell you what he is, he’s really competitive,” Smart said of the senior. “When we mess something up, if we don’t do something right on the offensive line, he gets upset. It bothers him. And he wants to command the other offensive linemen to get it right. And when he demands that, we usually have pretty good success.”
