“I made a move and Bradley bit on it,” Williams said. “I was able to pull up with one dribble. If I go left, I like my chances.”
There had been some discussion prior to Gronkowski’s suspension that he might get away without missing time because he hadn’t much history of in-game misconduct. He hadn’t been called for a personal foul or unsportsmanlike conduct since 2014. But Smith-Schuster has no history, period. He’s been in the league 13 weeks.
The Browns had a big opportunity to get their first win and essentially end the Packers’ season, but the fact they couldn’t hold a 21-7 lead in the fourth quarter with everything in their offense mostly working is worrisome, especially with coach Hue Jackson not going anywhere under new GM John Dorsey.
Another call just before Williams’ game winner was questioned, too.
If any NFL season was going to produce a playoff team quarterbacked by a Blake Bortles, it would be this season. Games like Sunday’s in Glendale, Ariz., which pitted Bortles and the Jaguars against Blaine Gabbert and the Cardinals, have long since stopped being the exception.
The problem for the Jaguars is, Gabbert’s Cardinals won, even though Gabbert got strip-sacked for a touchdown and threw an interception, both in the fourth quarter. Gabbert also threw a touchdown pass in the final quarter, and got his team in position to win 27-24 on бн a 57-yard field goal by one of the league’s last remaining players from the 1990s.
