The team credits safety measures with helping limit potential exposure to others who attended the NFL season opener last week.The Sept. 10 contest between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans had fans in the stands — 15,895 of them — but far fewer than the number Arrowhead Stadium can hold, 76,000.
It has not been a very good weekend so far for LSU Tigers faithful.
First, their beloved LSU Tigers became the first defending college football champs in 20 years to open their next season with a loss,.
Now, Joe Burrow, the hero of last year’s championship squad and the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft, got his “welcome to the NFL” moment on Sunday after a scary hit that briefly knocked him out of the game.
Latest injury news on Michael Thomas, Miles Sanders, A.J. Brown, James Conner
Saints star Michael Thomas and Titans wideout A.J. Brown could each be looking at a long absence. But some star running backs might be ready to go this week.Things are looking positive for Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders, who missed Week 1 with a hamstring injury. However, the NFL’s latest injury news isn’t all positive with receivers Michael Thomas and A.J. Brown in serious jeopardy of long-term absences.
The Cincinnati Bengals traveled to play the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday and Burrow was hoping to continue proving his worth as the latest potential savior of his new franchise. Early on the game, he was scrambling away from a defender to complete a pass, which left him open to get absolutely rocked by 6-5, 290-pound, Eagles DT Malik Jackson.
Joe Burrow got ROCKED. Yikes. Still down on the ground. Obvious flag.

Burrow did return to the game a play later (somehow) while Jackson got dinged with a roughing the passer penalty. Some folks thought that while the hit was devastating, it wasn’t actually worthy of a penalty.

This is something that Burrow is going to have to get used to. He was sacked three times and hit hard seven times in the Bengals’ last game, sacked three times in the season-opener before that, and it doesn’t look like the offensive line is up to that task of protecting him as needed. The Eagles have three sacks on Burrow at halftime already.
Unfortunately, the Bengals have a long history of young savior quarterbacks who fizzle out quickly, sometimes due to talent and sometimes due to a lack of quality players around them. Burrow clearly has the talent, but it’s a question of whether or not he’ll survive long enough to make good on all that hype.

While this quarterback matchup is exciting, the actual game might be decidedly less so. After all, the Ravens still look like one of the most dominant teams in the NFL as long as they're not playing the Chiefs."I like his game," Jackson said of Burrow. "I see he's broken records for passing yards in consecutive weeks. That's pretty dope. But I don't wish him success against us. I do want to win this game.
