But not for Steelers coach Mike Tomlin given his recent comments to Tony Dungy, which aired on NBC’s pregame show prior to Pittsburgh’s Sunday night win over Green Bay.
The Titans are faltering at the wrong time, and after their listless loss to Arizona the trip to San Francisco feels a lot more difficult. With the Rams and Jaguars looming, a disastrous losing skid could happen, which would add to the disappointment of finishing at .500 in 2016.
The Chargers kept chugging along against Washington, and now they get a long-awaited second shot against the Chiefs. Going from 0-4 to favorites in the AFC West should put Anthony Lynn in the Coach of the Year conversation.
“I’m always satisfied with any win, but particularly without three starters,” said Warriors head coach Steve Kerr. “That’s a great sign.”
Stephen Curry (ankle), Draymond Green (shoulder) and Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) were out, but Kevin Durant continued his stellar play by way of a team-high 28 points, nine rebounds, five assists and three blocks.
Gordon is the type of receiver who will demand safety attention over the top in matchups with lesser corners, which Green Bay and Baltimore now certainly have in relation to those of Los Angeles. That should open things up for the Browns’ running game, as well, and continue to make Njoku a tougher cover on intermediate routes.
One should expect the connection between Kizer and Gordon to keep improving after their first game together. Corey Coleman failed to record a catch against the Chargers, pretty much declaring that Kizer has his new go-to guy.
