Bears’ Nagy passes on giving up play-calling chores

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy will take a hard pass on surrendering play-calling duties. Nagy and the Bears are mired in a slump of growing proportion and significance, and the chorus is growing louder for a shift -- either at quarterback or play-caller. Nagy called plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, a role head coach Andy Reid surrendered, before being selected as coach of the Bears.

Bolts’ season on brink after more close-game woes in Mexico

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

No matter the opponent and no matter the country, the Los Angeles Chargers' offense just can't seem to score consistently when it really counts this season. Another poor offensive finish at Azteca Stadium on Monday night sent the Chargers into their bye week at 4-7 with a 24-17 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. After two seasons of relative success in close games under coach Anthony Lynn, the Chargers have slipped back into a rut in which they're simply not good enough to win down the stretch.

Why Rob Gronkowski believes 49ers’ George Kittle is NFL’s best tight end

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

The best tight end in football is no longer Rob Gronkowski, since the former New England Patriots star announced his retirement in March. Since then, the consensus on who the best at the position is has turned to George Kittle of the 49ers. "I like to go with George Kittle," Gronkowski said in an interview on The Lefkoe Show when asked for his opinion on who's the best tight end.

Chiefs buck meltdown trend, hold on late against Chargers

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

The collective groan could be heard across the Kansas City metro area when Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers drove his team deep into Chiefs territory in the waning minutes of Monday night's game. The Chiefs had struggled to put away teams all season, their defensive seemingly unable to come up with stops at critical junctures. It was just one week earlier that they melted down in the final minute in Tennessee, allowing the decisive touchdown with 23 seconds left in a 35-32 defeat.

Updates On Every Former Michigan Wolverine In The NFL: Week 11

There has been one notable exception during that stretch — Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark. Since he returned from missing two games with a neck injury and telling The Kansas City Stars' Sam McDowell that he's been dealing with a pinched nerve since training camp, Clark has posted two sacks in the last two weeks. He returned to the starting lineup on Monday Night Football — he had come off the bench the week prior — and was a terror off the edge, racking up five quarterback pressures, including one that led directly to an interception, a forced fumble, a pass breakup and five total tackles, in addition to his quarterback takedown.

Rivers’ 4 INTs are latest chapter in turnover-plagued season

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

With one last underthrown pass into Dan Sorensen's hands, Philip Rivers went down slinging in Mexico. The Los Angeles Chargers' playoff hopes are looking down as well after their longtime franchise quarterback and his offense came up empty at Azteca Stadium on plenty of opportunities to turn around this game and their season. Rivers passed for 353 yards during his first four-interception game in three years, and the Chargers couldn't overcome those miscues in a 24-17 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night.

Mahomes passed for 182 yards and hit Travis Kelce for his only touchdown, while LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams rushed for touchdowns as the Chiefs (7-4) hung on to win the fourth regular-season NFL game played in Mexico despite being held to 310 yards of offense. They also survived a few problems with Azteca's grass field and a one-sided first half favoring the Chargers (4-7), who racked up 312 yards without a touchdown. After throwing his second interception of the season in the first half, Mahomes led two sharp scoring drives in the third quarter with help from Kelce, who caught seven passes for 92 yards.
