  Patrick Mahomes ruled out of 'TNF' with possibly serious knee injury Patrick Mahomes may have converted a 4th-and-1 early in the second quarter of the Kansas City Chiefs’ game against the Denver Broncos on Thursday night, but it came at a cost. © Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports After picking up the first down, Mahomes was lying down on a teammate. He was pointing at his right leg, and trainers were later shown trying to treat his knee.A cart came out for the Kansas City quarterback, but Mahomes waved it off and walked off the field with the assistance of some staff members. He then headed into the locker room as he was replaced by Matt Moore.

At this time last year, Syracuse had just beaten No. 22 NC State in The Dome Formerly Known As Carrier to improve to 6-2 on the season. That win also moved the Orange into the AP Top 25 poll for the first time since 2001, as Syracuse found itself at No. 22. It would remain in the poll the rest of the season, climbing as high as No. 12 following a 54-23 win over Louisville two weeks later. Syracuse would finish the season 10-3 and at No. 15 in the AP poll.

This led to some hype leading to the 2019 season. With Clemson being the clear No. 1 in the ACC and no obvious choice to be No. 2, many pundits chose the team that went 10-3 last season to be that team despite a lot of important losses. Syracuse opened 2019 at No. 22 in the preseason AP Top 25 and moved up a spot to No. 21 after a narrow 24-0 win over Liberty in its season-opener. The next week Syracuse lost at Maryland 63-20 and fell out of the poll entirely.

It's kept losing since, and after dropping to 3-5 on the season with a 35-17 loss to Florida State, the Orange have accomplished quite a feat. They've gone from the AP Top 25 to The Bottom 25 in the same season.

Orange may be the new fast, but life comes at you faster.

‘Pearson’: ‘Suits’ Spinoff Canceled By USA Network After One Season

  ‘Pearson’: ‘Suits’ Spinoff Canceled By USA Network After One Season USA Network has opted not to renew Pearson for a second season. The decision comes a month and a half after the Suits spinoff starring Gina Torres ended its Season 1 run. Toplined by the mothership series alumna Torres, Pearson centered on her character, powerhouse lawyer Jessica Pearson, as she enters the dirty world of Chicago politics. Pearson originated on Suits, whose Season 7 finale served as a backdoor pilot for the spinoff. The offshoot, which hailed from Universal Cable Prods.

Week 9 Superlatives

As many of you know, I rank all 130 teams using a mathematical formula I created. That system is how I compile the Bottom 25, but for those of you interested in how the rest of the rankings look, you can see them all right here (it's updated weekly after The Bottom 25 is published). I will also be sharing some weekly superlatives from the rankings here in The Bottom 25.

Highest Climber: Georgia Southern climbed 22 spots this week, up from No. 102 to No. 80 after beating New Mexico State 41-7. It's a nice leap for a team that has spent so much time in The Bottom 25 this year.

Biggest Faller: It looked like FIU had turned a corner, winning three straight to bounce back from a 1-3 start to the season. Then the Panthers went and got blown out 50-17 by a Middle Tennessee team that was in The Bottom 25 last week. The Panthers fell 20 spots to No. 88 because of it.

Most Average Team: This week the honor belongs to No. 61 Southern Miss. The Eagles score is 0.99% better than the average score of all 130 teams.

Winners and Losers: Predicting what the first College Football Playoff rankings of 2019 will look like

  Winners and Losers: Predicting what the first College Football Playoff rankings of 2019 will look like It’s time to start seriously thinking about the College Football Playoff. The 2019 college football season is now 10 weeks complete and the first set of College Football Playoff rankings arrive on Tuesday. What will they look like? We have an idea.It’s pretty obvious that the top five teams in the AP top 25 entering the week will be in the top five of the CFP rankings. After all, four of those top five didn’t play on Saturday. But the order could be a little different. We’re taking our stab at what the order of the top 15 teams in the CFP rankings will be on Tuesday. We’ll likely be wrong.

Most Fraudulent Team: Nevada almost made Bottom 25 history this week. No team with a .500 record has ever been ranked in The Bottom 25 this late in the season, but the Wolf Pack nearly pulled it off. They're 4-4 on the year and ranked No. 105. That's one spot ahead of North Texas, which is in The Bottom 25. The next closest .500 team is Miami (OH) at No. 91.

Best Team with a Losing Record: Coastal Carolina finds itself at No. 78 with a 3-4 record. The only team with a winning record the Chanticleers are ranked ahead of is No. 80 Georgia Southern, but they are ahead of six teams at 4-4. Whether that means anything going forward remains to be seen.

Worst Team with a Winning Record: That would be Liberty, which just lost by 10 to Rutgers. The Flames are 5-3 on the season and ranked at No. 76. They fell 18 spots in the rankings, and their overall score is 28.41% below average. The good news is there are no teams with a losing record ranked above them, but there are a lot of four-loss teams rated higher.
