At home
Yeah, accepting the penalty is defensible. Wandeirng aimlessly in the secondary for the next three plays is not.

That was a big tackle. Might even give Mahomes another chance to put points on the board.

Glad I wasn't too interested in this game because directv has blacked out nbc where I live due to a fight with the broadcaster. Direct TV has also lost the nfl package this season. Once the baseball season ends I am no longer sure what the point of it is these days.

It's on Peacock if you have it.
I've been trying to hold out on streaming television (I am about to turn 49).

Directv has been giving me the baseball and NFL packages for free every year as a loyal customer. But alas it might be time. Not for this specific game but not being able to see the patriots games is going to be challenging with what I already have going on in real life.

Times change. Sigh.

Hutchinson is so fun to watch... it seems like he gets free or nearly gets to the QB on almost every dropback.

I have it on mute are they actually calling out the RT’s false starts or making some bullshit excuse for why it’s good?

To paraphrase Collinsworth, “So we really are obligated to at least make reference to the frequency with which the KC RT jumps early, but we’ll do it in the most milquetoast way possible.”

If no one knows, former RB Arian Foster joked on a podcast that the NFL was rigged and the entire preseason was dedicated to memorizing the script.

It blew up on social media (as a joke obviously). Nfl capitalizing on it.

I feel like Collinsworth could be replaced by AI. But not, like, current day AI, but more like the technology used when they developed Teddy Ruxpin.
