Talk about redemption for Kareem Hunt.
The Chiefs rookie running back had never lost a fumble in 856 college touches, but was stripped by Patriots safety Jordan Richards on his very first NFL carry Thursday at Gillette Stadium.
He recovered from that shaky start to set an NFL record and lead the Chiefs to a 42-27 upset of the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots.
But Hunt was the star Thursday. After former Bills running back Mike Gillislee scored for the third time to give the lead back to the Patriots, Hunt took a Smith pass 78 yards to paydirt that proved to be the difference.
In his decision to uphold the suspension, Henderson said Goodell handled the appeal appropriately.
“Here the process for imposing discipline outlined in the Policy has been followed closely, step by step,” Henderson said in a statement, via Adam Schefter.
The question before the Court is merely whether Elliott received a fundamentally fair hearing before the arbitrator. The answer is he did not. The Court finds, based upon the injunction standard, that Elliott was denied a fundamentally fair hearing by Henderson’s refusal to allow [the accuser] and Goodell to testify at the arbitration hearing.
The beauty in Goff’s Week 1 performance against the Indianapolis Colts for fantasy owners wasn’t his 72 percent completion rate or the fact that he posted the third-highest passer rating Cheap Jerseys China Vip for the Cheap Jerseys Borntrade week, but rather that he threw the ball 10 times in the second half when the Los Angeles Rams had a lead of 27 or more points. This week, Goff’s Rams will face the Washington Redskins, who just allowed Carson Wentz to throw for 307 yards and two scores. Look for new head coach Sean McVay to continue his aggressive playcalling and for Goff to have ample opportunity to post quality numbers.
