    Another stud gone for the season.

    Von Miller suffered an ankle injury in practice and is probably done for the year. That sucks.

    Much prefer the opposite end of the spectrum: "Just all running into each other, no subtlety to it" brigade.

    Never had anyone say that to me. A bizarre take on the sport that. There is a huge amount of subtlety in American Football.

    From people who have seen about five minutes of a game and when you try to get across that the sport is extremely tactical their eyes just glaze over because they have already formed an opinion.

    NFL is probably the most tactical sport for me. Basically every play is a set piece.

    It’s like a chess match.

    Can see how some people wouldn’t like it but once you actually sit and watch a few games it’s fascinating as *.

    Texans stayed in the locker room for the anthem.

    There’s a lot more fans in the stadium than I thought there would be. Oh, some boo’d the Texans. Also some boo’d both teams linking arms in a show of unity.

    Such a * country.

    17,000 fans in the stadium. Loads.

    Decent first half but the Chiefs’ offence is too strong. Mahomes showing no sign of letting up.

    31-7 now and in the 4th so I’m going to chin the rest of it off. Mahomes is great to watch though.

    Fell asleep about then too. Great to have it back. Didn’t feel like the lack of fans made a difference.

    I was fuming at you last night when I found out you had David Johnson in fantasy. I passed on him a couple times. :47:

    Barring injury can't see past the chiefs after that performance. Basically the same offense as last year +A great looking three down back +A better offensive line (opening great running lanes and Mahomes hardly got touched). Defence looks solid as well...
