What Makes Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase So Dominant?

The 2019 LSU Tigers were a bolt of lightning on a perfectly clear day—a sudden flash of electricity that was so surprising and magnificent that it was tough to tell exactly how it happened. In 2018, LSU finished 38th in the nation in scoring offense. In 2020, it finished 39th. Sandwiched between those good-but-not-great offensive efforts, the Tigers went 15-0 and set the FBS record for points scored in a season. They beat Georgia by 27 in the SEC title game, hung seven first-half touchdowns on Oklahoma in the Peach Bowl, and downed Clemson by 17 in the College Football Playoff national championship. After winning the title, the team tied records for the most players taken in the first three rounds of the NFL draft (10) and in the draft overall (14). It was tough to accurately assign credit. LSU took home awards for national coach of the year (Ed

Player grades for a dominant Halloween win

The Brooklyn Nets dominated the Pistons on Halloween and won consecutive games for the first time this season.

Kevin Durant was his usual self, scoring 19 points before the half and notching 23 points by the end of the third period. He put up those numbers on an efficient 10-of-13 shooting night. Durant led the way for the Nets going into the half as they were already dominating by 15 points.

  • Aaron Rodgers owns the Chicago Bears.

  • At least, that’s what he told Bears fans after scoring the game-sealing touchdown on Sunday.

  • With a 22-5 career record against the Bears, he’s not wrong.

The Green Bay Packers may be the only publicly owned team in football, but quarterback Aaron Rodgers is diversifying his investments.

With just over four minutes left in Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears, Rodgers scrambled for a six-yard rushing touchdown to put the Packers ahead 24-14, all but sealing the win for visiting Green Bay.

As boos rained down from the Chicago crowd, Rodgers jeered in response, which was caught on camera by the broadcast.

“All my f—ing life, I own you,” Rodgers shouted as his teammates surrounded him in the end zone. “I still own you. I still own you.”

After the game, Rodgers joked about his comment.

“Sometimes you black
