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 🐬!

📺: Watch #MIAvsBAL on @NFLonCBS

#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. ⚡️

The Saints put on a show

The Wellington Saints put in a perfect performance ahead of the NBL play-offs as they hammered the Franklin Bulls 125-65 in their final match of the regular season.

The Saints racked up 29 triples – a season high – as they put on a show against the Bulls to win their 15th game of the season.

It was an ominous performance from Zico Coronel’s side, who sent a message to their play-off rivals that they are the team to beat.

They face Auckland Huskies on Saturday in their last match before the decisive play-offs.

The Bulls finish the season with only five wins from 18 games.


The match

The visitors took control from the outset and never let go. They led 38-15 at the end of the first quarter with 11 triples.

Roared on by a fervent home crowd, the Bulls fought back in the second quarter and won the quarter, 22-21.

But the margin was still a considerable 22 points at the halfway stage and the Saints asserted their dominance with a clinical third quarter.

The final quarter was brutal from the Saints, who won it by 46-11.


The stats

As a team, they were ruthless with their three-pointers, making 29 out of 53 – a strike rate of 54%.

Between Kenneth Tuffin and Tobi Smith-Milner, they made all nine of their three-point attempts.

Here is a shot chart, provided by FIBA LiveStats showing Tuffin’s unerring accuracy from behind the arc.

It was a top performance from the Wellington side. The pick of the bunch on the day was Kerwin Roach, who scored 29 points, seven assists and five rebounds.

Leon Henry was also influential, scoring 24 points, including seven three-pointers.
