The vicious nature of Monday’s Pittsburgh-Cincinnati matchup has drawn criticism, but Mike Tomlin says it’s just football.
“It’s hard to tell,” Rodgers-Cromartie said. “I can say he comes in here in the right mindset and comes in and puts his stuff on and goes out there and practices. He does what is asked of him. I think, for the most part, he gets it.”
Watching the game live, right before this third-down play, I thought to myself, “the Browns are going to fluke themselves into their first win of this season, aren’t they?”
Apparently, I had Ngakoue and nem all the way fucked up.
The Jaguars decided to blitz Smith, who was walked up on the line, off the left edge. Fowler was in the game and lined up as the left defensive end in a five technique inside of Smith. Malik Jackson was lined up as the left three technique, and on the snap of the football he and Fowler ran a quick TEX game.
Right when it looked as if rising star Ben Simmons might lift the 76ers to an unlikely road victory, a guy that used to have Simmons’ job in Philadelphia took over in the clutch and rescued the Pelicans.
Jrue Holiday made five 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, when he scored 19 of his 34 points, and New Orleans overcame an eight-point deficit in the final period to beat short-handed Philadelphia 131-124 on Sunday night.
The 6-foot-4 Holiday, an Eastern Conference All-Star in Philadelphia before being traded to New Orleans in 2013, struggled to create scoring chances on dribble drives against the 6-foot-10 Simmons, missing eight of his first 12 shots. He shifted his focus to passing out of his drives and committed five turnovers.
