Might have to punt on the Bears, no O line, no QB. Trubisky might just be a whiff.
Legend of Deshaun

I thought of three things watching a lot of Raiders-Texans:

1. How sick must the Bears be, as their season goes down the tubes, watching Deshaun Watson and—soon, again—Patrick Mahomes make beautiful football happen for the Texans and Chiefs, two-and-a-half years after they passed on both in the 2017 draft?
Ouch :P .

I hated to see it, but this was amazing:
... It’s an overreaction to say Watson’s nine-yard TD pass to tight end Darren Fells saved Houston’s season. The 27-24 win over the Raiders advanced them to 5-3 and kept them a half-game behind Indianapolis in the AFC South, which is deceivingly good. The division went 4-0 Sunday.

I would argue, though, that it was the play of the year. Raiders up 24-20 with 6:30 left. At the Oakland 9-yard line, Watson took the shotgun snap. Surprise! Pocket caved. Watson knew he was in trouble right away. “I was trying to buy some time, and the first guy [defensive end Arden Key] kinda grabbed me when I stepped up. I just tried to swing him out.”
Video: Deshaun Watson Unbelievable Throw After Getting Kicked | Raiders vs. Texans | NFL
(slo-mo closeups at 1:10 and 1:50)
Kinda grabbed me. Truth is, Key had both arms around Watson’s waist. This should have been a sack. But Watson wriggled semi-violently to escape Key at the 17-yard line, and as Key fell to the ground, the top of his right shoe found the gap between the bars on Watson facemask. “Not sure if it caught me in the eyeball, but it went through the [mask] and got me,” Watson said. “My whole left eye just shut—went blank, went blind.”

As Watson regained his balance, he pushed the helmet up almost imperceptibly so he could have a view of the field with his right eye. “That one was starting to go shut too,” he said. “I felt it. All I remember is my tight end rolling right with me, and then the second guy [defensive end Maxx Crosby] started to tackle me. I saw the tight end, and I threw, and I went down. I didn’t see anything when I was down. I just heard the crowd go crazy. Figured we scored. Then I just laid there hoping my eyeball was good.”

Almost sacked twice. Kicked in the face. Left eye reflexively closed. Vaguely sees tight end 19 yards away. Throws while looking out of one eye.

Touchdown. Texans win....

3 teams are leading their divisions by 2 1/2 games:

Patriots > Bills :thumbdown:
Ravens > Steelers :thumbup: , though I don't hate the Steelers or Browns (Steelers playing Miami tonight).
Saints > Panthers :thumbup: , though I don't hate the Panthers

San Francisco 28, Arizona 25 :thumbup: 8-0!

I like the Seahawks a bit more, but I guess this year I'm rooting for San Francisco to win the NFC West and the Seahawks to be the top Wild Card. Head to head? Hmmm, probably Seahawks, but I have until 11/11 to decide.

May be a bit early, but Superbowl will be Niners v. Pats.

Seahawks win in OT, but over the fairly pathetic Bucs - and at home. I'm afraid even at 7-2 they're more pretender than contender.

Doesn't make up for a lost Bears season, but I'll take small victories.

There's a new kid in town, an' his name is Lamar. When I was watching him tear it up at Louisville I never dreamed that he'd be leading the Ravens to victory at 22 years old. He's on pace for 3K through the air and 1K on the ground.

Good to see National Champions Deshaun Watson & Hunter Renfrow chatting on the field again. :thumbup:
Deshaun Watson has another super-fan.

Raiders head coach Jon Gruden was so impressed by Watson's game-winning performance against the Raiders on Sunday that he compared him to NBA legend Michael Jordan.

"You see Michael Jordan, you see some of the great athletic plays in any sport, you've got to tip your hat to the guy," Gruden said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. "We had him three times, and then he makes an unbelievable throw and the kid makes a great catch."

Maybe just the defense? Idk, haven't seen them in awhile, but tonight's announcers are saying that Wilson is the MVP so far, 22 TDs.

My time at Clemson was the best 4.5 years of my life. I grew as an athlete on the field, but more importantly Clemson helped me to grow as a person and shape me into who I am now. I’ve said it many times and I will continue saying it, Clemson really does have the best fans in the world. I never could have imagined my football journey being what it is, but I am forever grateful to the Clemson family for all of their love and support.Image

Nice win over TN. Apparently, benching Mariota did not solve its problems. Panthers are in decent Wild Card shape after 1/2 of the season :thumbup: .
