Chiefs News 10/31: Chiefs called Jags about Josh Allen
Days after ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported it Jacksonville Jaguars pass corridor Josh Allen has sparked some trade interest before Tuesday’s trade deadline, another report Saturday corroborated the claim that the Jaguars are getting calls about Allen.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breerthe Kansas City Chiefs He “checked on the availability” of Allen, though he added that the Chiefs “may be a little more reluctant to part with their 2023 first-rounder.”
To this point, there is no indication that the Jaguars are entertaining the idea of trading Allen. However, it’s not hard to see why other NFL teams sign up.
On Sunday, the 2018 MVP and Super Bowl The LIV champion garnered some accolades Carolina Panthers quarterback PJ Walker, who connected with wide receiver DJ Moore for a miraculous 62-yard touchdown pass in Week 8. And Mahomes not only inferred that he was good, he said he was the best of all season
Early selection: More than 47 years
The Chiefs should be able to have their way with the Titans’ secondary – there are very few defenses in the league that have been able to successfully defend KC’s receiving group that just got stronger with the signing of Toney. The Chiefs have relied on their offense to win games, so Henry should still be able to get a few scores for the Titans. This game ends with a score around 35-17, Chiefs.
Around the NFL
The text was a video from December 17, 2018, of McCaffrey throwing a 50-yard touchdown pass against the New Orleans Saints. Satisfied with Fleury’s response, Shanahan went on to add a McCaffrey pass to the game plan for Sunday’s 31-14 win against the Branches of Los Angeles.
Shanahan didn’t know it would become the signature play of a historic day for McCaffrey.
Without wide receiver Deebo Samuel, McCaffrey gave the Niners the best in versatile performances as he threw, ran and caught a touchdown as the Niners moved to 4-4 heading into their bye week.
“I think everybody knows what a good player he is, but I like how consistent he is and under control in what he does,” Shanahan said. “He’s a very smart player, he makes a lot of plays and stuff, but it’s the consistency of how he plays his game. I feel like he was a great guy to add for us.”
The Carolina Panthers were one extra point out of first place in the NFC South just three weeks after firing their head coach.
Instead, an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on DJ Moore after his miracle 62-yard, tying TD catch with seconds remaining moved the extra point gain 15 yards. Eddy Pineiro fumbled, and the Panthers fell in overtime to the Falcons, 37-34, showing they’re still a club with massive growing pains up front despite playing spirited football for interim coach Steve Wilks.
“We just couldn’t find a way to finish,” Wilks said in his postgame press conference. “We had too many chances to win this football game and we didn’t find a way to do it. And that falls on me. We have to make sure we are smart enough. Something to learn. Celebratory penalty, great play like that, we have to keep calm. Great job with DJ making the big play in the end zone. Great pass by PJ (Walker). But as a team we have to make sure we are smart and ready. Take it to the next level, the next step.”
Allen was especially strong under pressure on Sunday night. According to Next Gen Stats, Allen was pressured on 40.7% of his dropbacks, which is the third-highest rate of his career. When pressed, he completed six of his nine passes for 166 yards and two touchdowns.
Specifically, the connection between Allen and Diggs was excellent as they connected on a number of key passes, including a 26-yard touchdown that helped build Buffalo’s early lead. He also had a 53-yard reception just before halftime to set up a Tyler Bass field goal and cap a first half in which they outscored Green Bay 24-7.
Josh McDaniels shouldn’t get a second season in Vegas
Overreaction or reality: reality
The Las Vegas Raiders they’re a mess, with the latest atrocity being shut out by a New Orleans Saints team that has its own problems. Apparently, the Raiders are the only team that didn’t have a game plan to contain Alvin Kamara, as he scored three touchdowns and had 158 yards of offense.
A team with Derek Carr and Davante Adams couldn’t score a single point. Josh Jacobs had just 10 carries as the offense finished with just 183 total yards.
The Raiders are 2-5 after making the playoffs under interim coach Rich Bisaccia last season. Vegas should have kept Bisaccia.
Belichick now has 325 wins (regular season and postseason), with Sunday’s game breaking a tie with Hall of Famer George Halas, the Chicago bones coach (40 years). Don Shula holds the all-time record with 347 wins.
Belichick downplayed the milestone, crediting the players and saying, “Maybe we’ll talk about it when it’s over, add them in at the end.”
In case you missed it at Arrowhead Pride
VOTE: Patrick Mahomes (11)
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is this year’s unanimous winner Arrowhead Pride “Bye Week Team MVP” Award. It’s probably the least surprising of all the awards.
While plenty of other starters, including Chris Jones, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Nick Bolton and Travis Kelce, have played well, there’s only one Patrick Mahomes, and he’s been regularly reminding the league of his greatness so far in 2022 .
Let’s be clear: This is not the 2018 MVP version of Mahomes.
Mahomes has evolved and grown as a player in many ways since his campaign. The 2022 Mahomes is working within the new offense, spreading the ball, bringing in new receivers and proving the Chiefs are a contender because of the guy under center. He’s been elite from inside or outside the pocket and has added some new elements to his game, such as the throwback.
The stats of the season so far are amazing. He leads the league in touchdowns, punts of 20+ yards, punts of 40+ yards, passing yards, first downs and most other quarterback ratings and analytics out there. Mahomes is also breaking all career records to date, such as highest winning percentage, wins when trailing by 10 points, touchdowns, yards, completions and wins in his first 70 starts.
