Even though I’m thankful the BILLS won today, I’m really upset and sad about what’s happening. And I imagine many of you are too. I love the game of football and all that it means to the players, fans and cities across THIS country…but with all that’s going on it’s hard. The only time I will ever take a knee is to pray and to thank the Good Lord for what he’s given me. We all have our issues. We all need to try and appreciate and understand each other and help each other and that goes for our PRESIDENT TOO. I don’t have all the answers. But I do know that we need to UNITE not SEPARATE. I hope next week we can STAND , LOCK ARMS and become ONE FAMILY.
Touchdown . The Jaguars were in total control of the game early. A methodical seven-play, 80-yard drive was capped by a 17-yard Blake Bortles touchdown pass to Marcedes Lewis. The drive took just 3:53 off the clock. 10-0, Jaguars
Field goal . A 23-yard field goal from Jason Myers capped a nine-play, 58-yard scoring drive for the Jaguars. 3-0, Jaguars
Kickoff. The Jaguars won the coin toss and elected to defer to the second half.
All members of both teams, including coaches and trainers, either linked arms or took a knee (or both) during the playing of the U.S. national anthem. Jaguars owner Shad Khan joined, as did former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.
Field goal. Back to a three-score game. Dustin Hopkins’ 28-yard field goal capped a nine-play Washington drive that burned 5:52 off the clock. 27-10, Redskins
Field goal. The Raiders failed to turn the Redskins’ turnover into six points, but they were able to cut Washington’s lead down to two scores with a 22-yard Giorgio Tavecchio field goal. 24-10, Redskins
Samaje Perine had the ball knocked loose, and the Raiders recovered deep in Redskins turnover �� exactly the play Oakland needed to keep itself in the game. Perine left the game with a hand injury.
