He isn't being paid enough at the moment to warrant that kind of protection. You have to have signed an ARod/KCous/JimmyGQ level contract to be eligible.

Same with Wentz, he's getting smashed up a bit. Elite DBs think those two are the future of the league, they need perservation.

Probably because they didn't want to try a 63-yard FG. They were probably hoping for the 3-4 yard run from McCaffrey then a spike, then a quick pass to the sidelines to get them to a more manageable 52-55 yard kick. Gano crushed the kick though, looked like it might've been good from 70. Not sure I've ever seen a 60+ yarder reach the back net in the air before...

That QB is too short to play in the NFL Football League.

Brees on Dan Patrick, a year ago.

Not good for Cincy.

Bengals primetime stats, historically:
21-50 total
8-24 under Lewis
7-39 on the road
1-16 on the road under Lewis
3-14 Sunday night all time
1-8 Sunday night under Lewis
1-13 Sunday night road all time
0-7 Sunday night road under Lewis
0-3 in flex games

(They've never played KC in a primetime game, so they have that going for them I guess)

FWIW the Bengals are 1-0 this year in primetime (Thursday night home vs. Baltimore)

They're also undefeated in prime time games where they score more than their opponents.

For what that's worth

The history suggests a Management issue, since the players change drastically year to year.
So, do they not prepare the team properly for Prime Time? Move their circadian schedules or something? What do successful prime-time teams do, I mean ones with a better-than-expected record in prime-time than not-prime-time?
