Ranked teams rule: AP Top 25 opens 23-0 vs unranked teams

Ranked teams rule: AP Top 25 opens 23-0 vs unranked teams The Top 25 went 23-0 against unranked teams to open the season, leaving the rankings mostly unchanged with No. 1 Clemson and No. 2 Alabama at the top of the first regular-season AP college football poll of 2019. The Tigers received 54 first-place votes out of 62 in the media poll, up two from the preseason. The Crimson Tide received the remaining eight in the poll presented by Regions Bank. The only Top 25 team to lose was Oregon, which slipped to 16 after dropping a thriller to Auburn. The Tigers moved up to 10th. The last time the Top 25 teams went undefeated against unranked foes in a full, regular-season weekend was October 2017 (15-0 the week of Oct. 15).

It’s only fitting that the same day that gave us a Rams-Saints rematch would also inflict a barrage of questionable officiating decisions. After the first week, the new pass interference review rule, a direct consequence of the NFC Championship Game, seemed unnecessary but nonintrusive. After the second week, we’re already tired of the judicial activism which the new rule has apparently invited.

That’s not just because of PI replay, though that reared its ugly head in the Vikings’ loss to the Packers. There were also curious holding penalties, worse roughingthe passer calls, a flag that even had Derek Carr speaking out, and the refs’ continued vendetta against the Saints.

9. The Titans lit their field on fire

Gameday operations teams don’t make many (or any) appearances on our dumbest mistakes lists. But when their goof turns into a gigantic fireball, they deserve a spot.

Minutes before the Titans were set to kick off their first home game of the year, a pyrotechnics machine lit on fire and just kept burning and burning.

Props to the Nissan Stadium staff for putting it out quickly, though it feels a little on the nose that it came before a Titans loss.

Maine to allow ranked votes in general presidential election

Maine to allow ranked votes in general presidential election Maine is set to become the first state to allow voters to rank candidates in a general presidential election. Democratic Gov. Janet Mills said Friday she'll allow such a bill to become law in January without her signature. The legislation requires ranked choice voting in presidential elections and primaries. Mills' office says ranked voting won't be used in a planned presidential primary in March 2020. But future presidential primaries would use it. Under the system, voters rank three or more candidates on a ballot in order of preference. If no candidate gets more than 50%, the last-place candidate is eliminated.

8. Ryan Fitzpatrick is doing everything he can to help the Dolphins tank

The Dolphins didn’t have much hope coming into Week 2. They took the field — their home turf — as 18.5-point underdogs against the Patriots. It didn’t get much better in the second half after New England jumped out to a 23-0 lead.

And then it got much, much worse.

Fitzpatrick’s dump-off was a perfect strike to an advancing Stephon Gilmore, who unfortunately for Fitz plays for the Patriots. How easy a run back was this for Gilmore? Well, he could have speed-walked his way to the end zone and been hit by exactly as many Dolphins as he was in his six-point job Sunday afternoon.

The next drive ended in eerily similar fashion when Kalen Ballage (who earlier ducked when a Fitzpatrick pass came his way) bobbled the ball and it landed in Jamie Collins’ hands for another pick-six:

7. Jalen Ramsey begged Doug Marrone to challenge and got ignored

The Jacksonville defense showed up in Week 2 after it was shredded in the season opener. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey was pretty fired up when he thought he helped force a DeAndre Hopkins drop early in the game on third down. Instead, it was ruled a catch.

He told Doug Marrone to challenge the play, but the Jaguars head coach decided not to listen. We only got one replay of the reception, but it looked like Ramsey may have had a point.

Maybe that call stands, but there’s a good chance it gets overturned — especially if there’s another angle that wasn’t shown. Either way, Ramsey was pissed he was ignored by Marrone and let him know after the Texans’ drive was extended and finished with a field goal.

The Jaguars went into halftime with all three timeouts and finished the game with a challenge to burn. It looks like an even worse decision in hindsight when the Texans won by only one point.

Week 3 preview: No ranked matchups but plenty of intrigue

Week 3 preview: No ranked matchups but plenty of intrigue For the second time in three years, there isn't a game in which ranked teams face each other, but there are still some interesting matchups as the season enters its third weekend. The last time there was an unranked weekend was Oct. 14, 2017. That might not be good news for No. 1 Clemson because it lost on the road to Syracuse 27-24. Guess where the Tigers are this week? Back at the Carrier Dome for the first time since that upset. The Orange had their stock take a hit last week after a 63-20 loss at Maryland. The weekend gets started on Friday with a pair of intriguing games. North Carolina visits Wake Forest and No. 20 Washington State visits Houston. GAME OF THE WEEK No.

Granted, Ramsey could’ve erased that drama by helping himself to an easy interception.

The bigger mistake by the Jaguars came much later, though.

6. The Chargers reminded the world just how badly they’re cursed

The Chargers cringed their way through a 13-10 loss to the Lions as only the Chargers can do. It started in the third quarter. Los Angeles led 10-6 and was primed to extend its lead when Justin Jackson took a handoff 60 yards for a touchdown. But, nope, holding on Dontrelle Inman cut that down to a 30-yard gain. Then Philip Rivers hit Austin Ekeler on a screen pass the tailback advanced 22 yards into the end zone, only for that to be negated by an illegal block above the waist.

No worry, after an illegal shift penalty cost the Chargers another five yards, Rivers and Keenan Allen teamed up to give the team first-and-goal at the Lions’ 1. They did not score. Ekeler fumbled away his first carry at the goal line. But the lost opportunity held a silver lining; when LA held Detroit to a three-and-out on the ensuing drive, Rivers got the ball back at the Detroit 45, setting up a short field.

AP Top 25: Cal, Arizona St move in to give Pac-12 6 ranked

AP Top 25: Cal, Arizona St move in to give Pac-12 6 ranked California and Arizona State have moved into the AP Top 25 college football poll to give the Pac-12 six ranked teams, the most for the conference in almost four years. A weekend filled with blowouts left the top half of the AP media poll presented by Regions Bank mostly unchanged. Clemson remains No. 1, with 57 of the 62 first-place votes, as the top nine held their spots Sunday. Alabama was No. 2, receiving five first-place votes, followed by Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Auburn and Florida. The ninth-ranked Gators were the only top-10 team to play a competitive game. The others won by a combined 428-97. Utah, the highest ranked Pac-12 team, moved up to No. 10.

Ranking the 7 dumbest mistakes from the NFL’s messy, thrilling Championship Sunday. Ye gods, the refs . The second half of Patriots-Chiefs appeared to go on interminably thanks to an array of replay challenges and calls where all that separated a turnover or a drop from a tide-turning play was a unit

Except a holding penalty on his team’s punt return pushed him back to his own 37. And things still nearly worked out for the Chargers ... except that curse goes double for Chargers kickers.

With Michael Badgley, LA called on punter and CFL veteran Ty Long to handle kicking duties. While he made a 39-yarder right before halftime, he missed second-half field goal attempts from 39 and 41 yards. That’s why, facing third-and-19 from the Detroit 28 with one minute to play, Rivers opted to throw a risky deep ball rather than play conservatively and set up another mid-range field goal.

That pass was picked off in the end zone.

5. The referees cost the Vikings a touchdown

Minnesota fell behind 21-0 early in Green Bay, but Dalvin Cook’s massive day helped push the Vikings into comeback range. It looked like the visitors would head to the locker room down only a touchdown after Kirk Cousins hit Stefon Diggs in the end zone with 68 seconds left in the half.

And then word came down from above that the play was under review. The only possible culprit on this bang-bang play was potential offensive pass interference, and moments later Minnesota marched 10 yards in the opposite direction without its hard-earned six points.

NFL senior VP of officiating Al Riveron defended the call, but it still appeared questionable at best and left both teams scratching their heads after the game.

SMU ranked in top 25 for first time since Death Penalty, Alabama new No. 1 over Clemson in all major polls

  SMU ranked in top 25 for first time since Death Penalty, Alabama new No. 1 over Clemson in all major polls The Mustangs are 5-0 after beating USF while Clemson's close call with UNC was punished nearly universally.There was a new program atop the Week 6 edition of the poll but it was old familiar Alabama, who has now pipped previous No. 1 Clemson in all three of the major polls released on Sunday. The Tigers narrowly avoided losing to North Carolina on Saturday and voters have appropriately punished Dabo Swinney’s team by dropping them across the board. Georgia remained No. 3 while Ohio State moved into the top four after flipping spots with No. 5 LSU. The top 14 was otherwise unchanged aside from No. 9 Notre Dame and No. 10 Florida changing places.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Not so much afterward, when I got driven downtown in handcuffs for spray-painting “Corporate Deathburgers” across a McDonald’s. I earned myself a long night in jail for my lack of judgment.

The Vikings couldn’t overcome first-and-goal from the 13 and had to settle for a field goal. That, paired with a missed field goal and blocked 47-yard extra point attempt (thanks to an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for Diggs), took eight points off the board for Minnesota. The Vikings lost, 21-16.

4. Kirk Cousins **also** cost the Vikings a touchdown

This came on first-and-goal. Cousins didn’t need to throw this ball.

But he did, lofting a pass into double coverage and wiping away what would be the Vikings’ best scoring opportunity in the fourth quarter. He finished his day with 14 completions on 32 passes and looked in no way worthy of the $27 million guaranteed salary he’ll earn in 2019 and 2020.

3. The Jaguars took the ball out of Gardner Minshew’s hands with the game on the line

Everyone’s new favorite rookie sixth-round pick was dealing Sunday. Minshew led the Jaguars 68 yards on a 14-play drive that pulled them within one point of the Texans with 30 seconds left to play. His ability to improvise in the pocket had helped him extend drives throughout the day, and his connection with the 6’4 D.J. Chark provided Jacksonville’s only touchdown.

And he didn’t hear his number called when his team needed two yards the most. Instead, that duty fell to Leonard Fournette.

Fournette had run the ball three times on that drive. He gained four yards, was stopped for no gain, and gained a single yard. He’d need 2.5 to score a game-winning two-point conversion.

He got one:

Rather than riding the young, dynamic quarterback and his hard-charging wideouts, the Jags decided to run directly into the teeth of one of the league’s best defensive fronts. Or, as Big Cat Country eloquently put it:

2. Sorry, Broncos. The refs still don’t know what roughing the passer is

For most of the afternoon, a matchup between the Broncos and Bears went exactly how you’d expect it to: short passes to the middle of the field, some punts, a field goal here and there, and very little air time on RedZone.

That changed once the two-minute warning came.

With less than a minute to play and the Bears up 13-6, Emmanuel Sanders made an amazing grab to haul in Joe Flacco’s pass in the end zone. Vic Fangio decided he really, really didn’t want to wait any longer for his first coaching win, so the Broncos lined up to go for two, only to be hit with a delay of game penalty. They made the seemingly smart choice to just try the extra point after that ... and then missed the PAT.

But wait! The Bears were called for offsides and the Broncos got a do-over at their original spot. The two-point conversion was back on and it succeeded, probably because the Broncos didn’t go away from what was working (Flacco to Sanders), cough cough, Jaguars.

With 30 seconds left and a shaky Mitchell Trubisky asked to go win the game, the Bears looked like they were headed for 0-2 land.

Luckily for them, they got an extra 15 yards on the first play because the refs thought this was roughing the passer:

With nine seconds remaining and facing a fourth-and-15 at his own 40, Trubisky danced around before finding Allen Robinson for a 25-yard gain. It looked at first like the clock had run out, but the officials put one second back on, saying the Bears had called timeout before it hit double zero.

That confused the Broncos on the field:

And our Broncos blog:

It wasn’t over yet, though. The Bears would have to overcome their own demons: a game-winning field goal attempt. This time, no one has to worry about future Today Show appearances because Eddy Pineiro nailed the 53-yard try and saved the Bears the embarrassment of losing on a last-minute touchdown from Joe Flacco.

The Broncos, meanwhile, are left wondering why Chubb doing his job is the biggest reason they’re 0-2 right now.

1. The officials screwed the Saints, like always

Perhaps you’ve heard this story before?

The Saints lost to the Rams, but not before a horrible call cost them. Unlike the NFC Championship, this time the awful officiating that pissed off New Orleans happened in the first half.

With the Rams threatening to score in the second quarter, Saints defensive end Trey Hendrickson knocked the ball out of Jared Goff’s hand. It bounced twice and fell right into the lap of Cameron Jordan, who took off down the sideline with no one between him and a touchdown. Then — for some reason — a whistle blew the play dead.

Officials called it an incomplete pass, but replay determined it was a fumble and the Saints took over. But instead of a touchdown and a 10-3 lead, New Orleans was stuck deep in its own territory. The ensuing drive for the Saints ended with a turnover on downs near midfield.

The Rams took a 6-3 lead into halftime.

Al Riveron posted a video explaining why the play was ruled a fumble, but didn’t address the whistle that shouldn’t have been blown. “You always teach the officials on a close play, let it play out,” former head of officiating Dean Blandino said.

Saints coach Sean Payton didn’t blame the loss on the officials — there were other factors, like Drew Brees’ injury at play — but couldn’t help but say it was “an awful call” and “poor officiating.”

Maybe one day the Saints will be the team on the beneficial side of a bad call. Or maybe not.
