    …and a new head coach.

  3. Wow, Miami was fast yesterday. Both offense and defense. Got to hand it to them. Unfortunately they are running out of games to right their ship. And unfortunately for the Raiders, there are too many games left to lose this division.

  4. Shame that the ref didn’t call a very obvious block in the back during Antonio Brown’s return. Heck, even both announcers said they couldn’t believe that it wasn’t called.

    (Not that it would have mattered anyway in the outcome. My Bengals got smoked.)
