#4 "Rough" go of it: The NFL's new rules emphasis on roughing the passer doubled the amount of such penalties called in Week 1 year-to-year 2017 to 2018.
Before looking ahead to next week, let's take a look at what happened in Week 2 as the Minnesota Vikings visited Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers starting with the things the boys in purple did well but following up with the bad and interesting things! I thought I hit him in his waist, chest.
And the quarterback gave an update on his injury after battling through a week of treatment to take the field in the first home game of the season.
For the second week in a row, a game came down to pressure put on from Matthews.
"I don't even know where to start, to be completely honest with you", Matthews told Michael Cohen of The Athletic, clearly beside himself.
Terry's Chelsea return down to him, says Sarri
Speaking to Chelsea's official app, The 5th Stand, Terry said: "Still undecided what I'm doing next". Asked about the prospect of Terry returning, Sarri added: "He told me he wants to play".
Quarterbacks are obviously the most valuable players on any football field and appear to be garnering undue protection from clean football plays as the NFL looks to protect its assets. So in a way, Matthews is actually lucky that his penalty didn't lead to a Packers' loss. I don't know what else to do. Until that point, the Packers had put together the kind of complete performance needed to support Rodgers, who got hurt in Green Bay's opening victory against Chicago. It's frustrating because the interception is game right? Williams and Montgomery combined to run 21 times for 90 yards and they should have gotten more carries down the stretch. "He picked the quarterback up and drove him into the ground".
Crosby connected on what would've been his sixth field goal of the day, but Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer iced the kicker with a timeout just as the ball was snapped, negating the kick.
Referee Tony Corrente told ESPN that Mathews was flagged for driving Cousins into the ground, and that his use of his body weight was not considered.
But Corrente said the new rule didn't play a part in that Matthews play.
Zimmer also was upset about a penalty on defensive end Danielle Hunter, saying, "I thought the call on Danielle, hit in the back, was a awful call".
