Thursday, October 31st, 2019

San Francisco's game-manager turned into quite the game-changer in an impressive performance. Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 317 yards and four touchdowns on a night his team's vaunted defense wasn't at its best, and the San Francisco 49ers reached the halfway point of their season undefeated, beating the Arizona Cardinals 28-25 on Thursday.

Take 5: Belichick vs. Lamar takes spotlight in Week 9

Thursday, October 31st, 2019

The New England Patriots' visit to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night is the most fascinating game of Week 9, as the league's best scoring defense faces the second-highest scoring offense. That would be intriguing enough on its own, but the matchup also brings a clash of styles, with Bill Belichick's man-coverage preference potentially vulnerable to Lamar Jackson's mobility. Belichick's focus will be on Jackson's legs Jackson has taken major strides as a passer, but his legs remain the more consistent threat.

He announced his retirement from the NFL in September, but clearly, he's still keeping an eye on the game.
