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. ⚡️

Seven-minute blitz

Leicester City scored three goals in seven minutes to complete an incredible 3-1 comeback win as Liverpool capitulated at the King Power Stadium.


The match

The champions were on the way to getting their season back on track when Mohamed Salah curled a shot into the far corner in the 67th minute, after a brilliant drag-back from Roberto Firmino.

But in an astonishing seven-minute period, the match was turned on its head. The hosts had a penalty ruled out by VAR, but James Maddison scored in the 78th minute from the resulting free kick after it was initially ruled out for offside.

Three minutes later, calamity struck for Liverpool as goalkeeper Alisson – for the second week running – made another howler as he ran out of his goal to clear a long ball but crashed into debutant Ozan Kabak.  Jamie Vardy was left free to dribble the ball into an empty goal.

Harvey Barnes caressed a shot into the far corner after some lax Liverpool defending to complete the scoring.

What it means

Leicester remain third but go six points above Liverpool. Chelsea, who play Newcastle on Monday night, can leapfrog Jurgen Klopp’s side with a win.


Stats

Liverpool lost their third match in a row for the first time since November 2014 – when Brendan Rodgers was in charge – as their season continues to unravel.

The Merseyside club have lost five times in their last seven league games.

The Reds have conceded seven goals in their past two league games – as many as they had in their previous 10.

Maddison has been involved in eight goals in his past nine Premier League games, scoring four and assisting four.
