It has been 596 days since Jaylon Smith suffered a knee injury to end his college career and Saturday he returned to play football for the first time.
The Indianapolis Colts struggled to do anything offensively with Scott Tolzien under center, so there weren’t many snaps for the first-team Cowboys defense, but Smith stood out in his limited time on the field.
Here, Mahomes found De’Anthony Thomas on a 3rd and long, keeping the drive alive for the Chiefs.
Mahomes showed his ability to handle pressure by sticking in the pocket, and still making a poised throw to Jehu Chesson, getting the Chiefs near the red zone.
After the game, Carr was asked why he put his hand on Mack during the national anthem:
“Obviously, we’re not protesting. You know, we’re not doing anything like that. What we wanted to do is show all the kids that look up to me, look up to him, that white kids, black kids, brown kids, blue, green, doesn’t matter, can all be loving to each other.
Props to this dad for dancing how everyone would expect a dad to dance, which is to say at a wedding, or at a state fair concert, or chaperoning at a school dance:
What did you have before the game? Was it coffee? Should I take up coffee now so I can dance like this? The Vikings were down by 14 at this point, but you don’t mind, you just want to dance.
And I don’t blame you because it’s preseason, where none of this matters. Blair Walsh cared more about this game than you did, but my dude, you wanted to be seen on camera and become a highlight, and I respect the hell out of it. I don’t know if there’s a Dancing Sports Fan Hall of Fame, but I hope you get enshrined in it someday.
