Former Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford exited the Minnesota Vikings' Monday Night Football game against the Chicago Bears with an apparent left knee injury. I tried to approach the week like I was starting.
Case Keenum wanted to be ready from the get-go or in a pinch. It was picked off by the Vikings' Harrison Smith already in field-goal range. And Minnesota had 33 yards rushing in the first half while taking a 3-2 lead. How about a reverse option that resulted with rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky walking into the end zone for the conversion.
Chicago (1-4) dropped its second consecutive game.
"We can't put him in those positions", Wright said.
Myles Garrett to make regular season debut when Browns take on Jets
On Sunday, the coach's indecision on a fourth-and-1 play inside the NY 5-yard line was arguably the turning point in the game. This game could come down the wire, with either team winning on a late score, so I like taking the points here.
The Vikings played their first game without Cook, who was lost for the season with a torn ACL suffered October 1 against Detroit.
Bradford was sacked four times in the first half, including once for a safety, while completing just five of his 11 pass attempts for 36 yards. They committed seven penalties, with all of them coming in seemingly crucial times, falling to 1-4 to remain in last place in the NFC North. Trubisky finished the game 12 of 25 passing for 119 yards with a touchdown and that one interception. "Everybody believes in him, and he showed why". That was on opening day against the Redskins in Washington, when he was filling in for the injured Rex Grossman, with the Bears losing that game 9-7.
That cut the lead to 10-9, but it didn't last long. The gamble paid off as punter Pat O'Donnell found Benny Cunningham for a touchdown pass.
He wasn't sure how much more time Bradford will miss.
Bronx Columbus Day Parade marches with mayor not invited
Politicians came to the defense of a statue of Christopher Columbus and his eponymous holiday at a parade in the Bronx on Sunday. Giovanni da Verrazzano, an Italian who sailed for France, was actually the first European explorer to make it to the mainland.
Rudolph caught six passes for 45 yards and one touchdown. He was pressured, forced out of the pocket and then threw it right at tight end Zach Miller. We were supposed to see Bradford hand it off to Dalvin Cook and because we aren't, I'm just angry at the universe and the only thing I can do is write about it. Especially when you make a play like that with an interception.
"We had a little quick game called right there", Trubisky said. After the St. Louis Rams selected him with the first overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, Bradford has played all 16 games only twice in his first eight NFL seasons.
Or left tackle Charles Leno Jr., who was beaten by defensive end Everson Griffin on his sack and strip of Trubisky in the final minutes of the second quarter. What we need to do is be better, collectively, around him. So, and I said this in my live chat... I think he did everything he could for us to win that game.
In a game that saw top receiver Stefon Diggs exit with a groin injury, the Vikings needed offensive skill guys to step up and make big plays. The Bears started the season out with Mike Glennon, but the turnover-prone QB was ditched after a dismal start to the season.
