Nobody throws a sidearm like @PatrickMahomes and #RomoVision was there to capture it on @NFLonCBS.🏈📊

Congrats to our latest partner the @Colts on their 20-17 win yesterday. #KCvsIND

🎯 It’s been a shaky PL start in defense for TAA, but in passing he ranks:

🔺 1st – passes through the back line (97)
🔺 3rd – passes into final third (184)
🔺 5th – passes leading to shot (20)
🔺 7th – pressured passes

Is Southgate right not to include him for #ENGGER?

#LFC

Overall, the #Packers rank just 18th for yards gained per pass completion, and Rodgers has 4 throw aways. Brady is 8-34 on +10 yard attempts, and 3-11 on +20 yard attempts for #Buccaneers.

Whether it’s Brady’s O-Line, or Rodgers’ receivers; these QBs have trust issues right now.

Tua ➡️ Tyreek

This deep middle 48-yard TD pass brought the #Dolphins within one score of the Ravens in Week 2. It’s currently the 2nd-most improbable completion (20.7% chance) so far in the #NFL.

Another 👀 at @cheetah’s first TD as a 🐬!

#MiamiDolphins and #BuffaloBills both currently average 6.7 yards per play, tied (also with the Eagles and Chiefs) for 2nd in the #NFL after Week 2.

Buffalo just edges Miami in 1st downs (46-45) and drive-scoring rate (52.4%-47.4%).

Expect a high-scoring game. ⚡️

Stuttering Dortmund face Stuttgart

Borussia Dortmund face Stuttgart in the Bundesliga with the aim of getting back to winning ways after taking one point from their last six.


Dortmund

Lucien Favre’s side are in fourth, four points off the top and are missing key striker Erling Haaland, who is out injured. The Norwegian has scored 10 goals in eight league matches this season.  Dortmund have lost their past two league home games and haven’t lost three at home since 2013/14.

They drew 1-1 with Eintracht Frankfurt and played without an orthodox striker, until 16-year-old Youssoufa Moukoko came on at half-time.

Stuttgart

Stuttgart have made a good start in their first season back in the Bundesliga after being promoted – sitting eighth in the table.

Thomas Hitzlsperger’s side are unbeaten away from home this season and won 2-1 at Werder Bremen last weekend with Silas Wamangituka scoring both.


Head-to-head

Dortmund have only lost one of their last 16 Bundesliga games against Stuttgart (W10, D5).

Union Berlin host Bayern

Top-of-the-table Bayern Munich visit Union Berlin on Saturday evening in the Bundesliga, with the champions hoping to get back to winning ways after their 3-3 draw against RB Leipzig.


Bayern Munich

Hansi Flick’s side have been entertaining to watch this season with 50 goals being scored in 10 matches involving his side (34 scored, 16 conceded).

Once again last week, Bayern were leaky at the back but dynamic up top. They have scored at least 12 more than any other side in the division, but have conceded the joint most goals in the top eight.


Union Berlin

Union Berlin have been extremely impressive this season, sitting 6th in the table with 16 points from 10 games. That is six more points than they had at this stage of last season.

They were beaten for the first time since the opening day (8 matches) when they lost 3-1 against neighbours Hertha Berlin last weekend.

Urs Fischer’s side went a goal up but had Robert Andrich sent off after 23 minutes, and understandably wilted in the second half.

Union have scored 13 goals in their last four home matches.

Head-to-head

Last season was the first time the two sides met – with Bayern winning 2-1 at home and 2-0 in Berlin.


Other fixtures

RB Leipzig host Werder Bremen, with Julian Nagelsmann’s side aiming to make it six wins out of six at home this season.

Elsewhere, second-placed side Bayer Leverkusen host Hoffenheim.
