SANTA CLARA, Calif. -Rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard passed for 288 yards and two touchdowns, leading San Francisco to a victory over NY, its first win under first-year head coach Kyle Shanahan after a 0-9 start. Some posters added the hashtag #FireFox to leave no room for doubt.
There weren't many positives in the Bears' 23-16 Week 10 loss to Green Bay, a game many predicted Chicago would win. Even with the week off against a team that played last Monday, they were a step behind on offense in allowing five sacks and rushing for just 55 yards.
WGN's Marcus Leshock crafted a meme of the situation, coupling a clip of Fox's face, as the realization of the referees' reversal dawns on him, with "Frolic", the bumbling theme song of HBO comedy "Curb Your Enthusiasm".
That the Browns had been winless doesn't make it any less important that the Lions win winnable games going forward; if Sunday's results are any indication Detroit can't give the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers an inch.
The Packers came into this game as three-point underdogs, mostly due to the fact they were playing on the road, and Hundley has looked bad under center. So instead of a running a play with a high amount of risk or reward, Chicago played it safe, dialing up a screen pass for running back Benny Cunningham.
RB Jamaal Williams: With the Packers losing both Aaron Jones and Ty Montgomery by halftime, they had no choice but to turn to Jamaal Williams to lead the ground game.
Knicks 'Pissed' at LeBron James' Dennis Smith Jr Comments
Ntilikina seemed to take the high road Sunday. "When I was watching the draft I thought they was gonna pick (Smith)". Enes Kanter was traded to NY in the summer and has played a big role for the Knicks this season.
Perry and Daniels delivered four combined sacks of rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. The Bears challenged that it was a touchdown instead of taking the ball first-and-goal at the one, not realizing that the running back's loss of control of the ball opened it up to a touchback. The Green Bay Packers got absolutely manhandled by the Detroit Lions.
"We're trying to weather the storm until 12 gets back", linebacker Clay Matthews said.
Cunningham said he thought it was a TD at first, but he agreed with the call after watching the replay. I don't even think we went at him.
It went awry when punter Justin Vogel fumbled Derek Hart's long snap and couldn't get the hold down cleanly, causing Crosby's kick to sail wide right. "Which creates a touchback". "Unless it's fourth down, you don't reach the ball out at the goal line, in the red zone", he said.
Cleveland rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer passed for 232 yards and a touchdown and also carried seven times for 57 yards.
A drive that has to stand out came early in the fourth quarter, with the Bears trailing 16-13.
