Sunday’s NFL contests included a number of injuries to key players, including a trio of players – Sam Bradford, Brian Cushing, and Leon Hall – whose seasons may have been lost as a result. Here’s a rundown of yesterday’s notable injuries, and their impact:
You see, Irsay made the following comment about his old, soon-to-be Hall of Fame Cheap Throwback NBA Jerseys quarterback, per Sports Illustrated:
“We’ve changed our model a little bit, because we wanted more than one of these,” Irsay said, pointing to the ring his team earned by beating the Chicago Bears, 29-17, in Super Bowl XLI.
Shockingly, this created controversy in the 24/7 media blitz that we live in these days. Of course, Irsay tried to blame everybody short of his mother for the firestorm, but the comment was made and men from Broncos head coach John Fox and former Colts head coach Tony Dungy to ex-Colts general manager Bill Polian all voiced their displeasure with Irsay.
Causing troubles for Tannehill was the play of Bills defensive end Mario Williams, who finished the game with two late sacks, including a strip sack that set Buffalo up for a game-winning field goal. Brian Galliford of SB Nation’s Bills blog, Buffalo Rumblings, said the showing was strong enough to warrant Defensive Player of the Game honors:
Mario Williams recorded two more sacks (and nearly had a third on Miami’s final, desperation Hail Mary), including a massively important forced fumble (recovered by Kyle Williams) that set up the Bills’ go-ahead field goal. Williams now has 10 sacks through seven games – he had 10.5 a Cheap Team Jerseys Basketball year ago, remember – and was dominant in the victory.
Williams is now tied for second in the NFL in sacks with Kansas City Chiefs pass rusher Justin Houston. Both trail Robert Mathis of the Indianapolis Colts, who already has a career-high 11.5 sacks through seven games.
