It came after reports surfaced that Bengals coach Marvin Lewis would be leaving at the end of the season after a 15-year stint as head coach.
Let’s get this straight. Jackson, who is 1-29 over two seasons with the Browns and could go 0-16 in 2017, could take over for Lewis, his former mentor, weeks after trying to trade for the Bengals’ backup quarterback. If that happens, then Lewis would become a candidate for the Browns job.
When I’d spoken to Harris a couple years ago, he’d made a big jump from his rookie to sophomore seasons. I was asking him about another offseason in the gym, and he’d barely let the question finish when he reminded me about his place as a shooting guard in the league, I’m not the best yet.
The point for him wasn’t at all to be pointed, and he was calm and clear. Harris has a goal, and he knew that was the answer to the question. He was still working, and is still working. Whether he achieves his goal or not, he intends to keep pressing himself until he’s the best. Or at least, at his best.
Touchdown Chiefs. Smith finds a wide open Tyreek Hill, who had run straight by his defender, for a 64-yard score to increase Kansas City’s lead to 10-0. The catch was Hill’s seventh touchdown of the season.
The Chargers move the chains three times and advance near midfield. But Rivers is sacked for a 9-yard loss on first down and Los Angeles fails to recover. It punts and the Chiefs will take over at their 20.
