The time and date of this year’s Mexico City game is no longer a mystery.
The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams will play at Estadio Azteca on Nov. 19 at 8:15 p.m. ET, the league announced Wednesday night. The reveal comes before the release of the full 2018 NFL regular-season schedule, which will be announced Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on NFL Network.
There’s no telling if Watson will be the same quarterback coming back from injury or if the Texans can maintain last season’s brilliant offensive stretch with what coach Bill O’Brien called an entirely different offense in place. But on that front, Houston’s heroes are undaunted.
[Our potential] is through the roof. We’re as good as we think and the work that we put in, Watson said. We have a long way to go, but at the same time, we have that mindset that we want to break records together.
After earning a Super Bowl ring with the Colts in 2007, Freeney returned to the title game with the Falcons a decade later. Along the way, he earned three first-team All-Pro nods and seven trips to the Pro Bowl.
Freeney will retire with 125.5 sacks, tied with Baltimore’s Terrell Suggs for 17th on the all-time list. Of the 16 players ahead of him, 11 have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The exceptions include Julius Peppers, DeMarcus Ware, John Abraham and Jared Allen — four players yet to gain eligibility.
Although his strong Hall of Fame case will face competition from contemporaries such as that fearsome pass-rushing quartet — as well as Suggs and James Harrison — we expect Freeney to don a gold jacket someday.
Sure. Maybe. But this was not the case. Up 6-0 and the rain worsening — soon there would be a weather delay — it was incumbent upon Porcello to throw first-pitch strikes to try to put the ball in play. And that’s what he did. In the fourth and fifth, he threw a total of 14 pitches to the seven batters he faced.
But what do we know? We’re just supposed to sit there, ignoring what we see, instead believing what we’re told.
