Myles Garrett/Cleveland Browns doubling down

Freddie Kitchens, on his coaches show just now: "I have the same sentiments. I don’t question Myles’ character at all. The type of person he is. He’s never wavered with his character. I’ll always support Myles Garrett without wavering one bit just like the organization."

Just asked Baker Mayfield about Garrett’s allegation that Rudolph used a racial slur and he seemed pretty stunned. Said wasn’t something he’d heard, including from anyone on the team, until I just asked him

Browns LB Joe Schobert: “haven’t heard anything on that front.” Added he wasn’t close enough to the play to hear anything in real time either

Amazingly, the Browns and Steelers play again in 10 days.

So Richard Sherman claims Baker Mayfield refused to shake his hand at the coin toss. This video seems to indicate otherwise:

Ohio St played 13 FBS opponents, Bama played 11. Ohio St has 2 top 10 wins, Bama has zero. Ohio St won its conference, Bama didn’t win its division. What exactly is the case for the Tide?

In the ’99 Red River Showdown, OU offensive coordinator Mike Leach planted a decoy play script during pregame warmups. The Longhorns found it, used it and fell behind 17-0 before realizing they’d been duped. Inside how it all happened:

So… since ESPN began video tracking the NFL in 2007, there has never been a draw play called on 4th and 9 or more, according to @ESPNStatsInfo 

Oklahoma now has the nation’s No. 1 QB, No. 1 WR and No. 1 TE signed or committed for the class of 2019

Amazing stat from . The best game by a Power 5 RB each week last year still didn’t outrush Barry Sanders in 1988.
