The Tennessee Titans got out to the start they needed against the New England Patriots Saturday in the Divisional Round.
After marching down the field, rookie Corey Davis got his first career touchdown reception after reaching out with his left hand and securing the football all the way to the ground:
But one week for Smith. One week, while Webb gets his feet wet and makes final preparations to play the last four weeks so the Giants can see what they have in the young kid, starting Dec. 10 against a beat-up Dallas team.
But this offering was too frightening to ignore. So, after staring at the picture for a few minutes in disbelief, I emailed the PR guy who sent it to me. I said, “Whoah, Max, this is nuts. What’s in the buns to make them blue?”
Max responded immediately and told me he was checking for me. I wrote back, “Thank you!!!” A few minutes later he emailed me again and said, “Through food coloring.” He included a smiley face emoji.
Few receiving partners are casing and solving NFL secondaries better than these two, who’ve had 19 games of 80 or more yards over the past two years (12 by Thielen, seven by Diggs), third in the league. Which is a pretty big deal in these parts. When Diggs passed 900 yards in Week 16 last year, they became the franchise’s first 900-yard couple since Randy Moss and Cris Carter, in 2000. And if mentioning the new guys in the same breath as those Minnesota legends feels like heresy, consider Moss’s testimony: “Vikings fans have been waiting a long time for this moment to come back.”
Any Space Jam fan will probably tell you that the Monstars didn’t need or have secret stuff. After all, why would they after absorbing the basketball skills of the NBA’s best? It was Michael Jordan who had the bottle, so in the film it read “Michael’s secret stuff.” It’s what the Tune Squad needed for motivation and, eventually, the win (that and Jordan realizing he can be super elastic for the game-winning dunk).
