He caught four passes for 85 yards in Los Angeles.
Gordon’s touchdown reception was just the third by a Browns receiver this season, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Kizer was 1-for-10 with two interceptions throwing to wide receivers in the end zone before his touchdown pass to Gordon.
After a summer of Deflategate coverage, it may not surprise you that misery sometimes surrounds the Patriots. That rings true for the Raiders, who still rue the once anonymous, now infamous and discarded ‘Tuck Rule.’
Before Tom Brady and the Patriots ever won a Super Bowl, they first won a highly controversial 2001 AFC divisional round game against the Raiders. With his team leading 13-10, the Raiders’ Charles Woodson appeared to strip Brady behind the line, forcing a late fourth-quarter fumble and seemingly securing the game. But upon further review, referee Walt Coleman reversed the call, citing ‘The Tuck Rule.’
Larry Fitzgerald’s climb up the NFL’s all-time receiving yards list continued Sunday. The Arizona Cardinals wide receiver passed longtime mentor and friend Randy Moss for third place on the list in a 12-7 win over the Tennessee Titans.
Fitzgerald entered the game needing 25 yards to match Moss’ 15,292 career yards. He passed Moss in the third quarter on a 23-yard pass from quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Fitzgerald finished the day with 44 yards on five receptions.
Fitzgerald was a ball boy for the Vikings and used to wash Moss’ cars for cash, and even borrowed his BMW to go to the high school prom.
The next target for Fitzgerald will be Terrell Owens, who is second on the all-time list with 15,934 career receiving yards.
