While the full schedule release is set to be announced Thursday night, at least one game of the NFL calendar was announced late Wednesday. The Kansas City Chiefs will face the Los Angeles Rams in Mexico City on Monday Night Football on November 19. Kickoff will be at 8:15 p.m. ET. It had been known since January that the two teams would meet at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City at some point during the season. The game will mark the second time the Chiefs have played a game in Mexico. They played the Dallas Cowboys in a preseason game in Monterrey in 1996. It will be the fourth regular season NFL game played in Mexico City and third straight season the league has ventured south of the border.
Thursday on YES, Boston’s Rick Porcello was pitching a no-hitter in the fourth, two out. The Red Sox had a 6-0 lead and it was beginning to rain hard. Porcello’s mission was then as clear to us as it was to him: Pitch fast, no deep counts, get this game in as an official one, don’t waste any time.
But Kay saw it the other way: The Yankees aren’t wasting any time. They’re not working the count. They’re jumping on Porcello, who’s throwing strikes.
The Yanks were stuck. They could either swing at the first pitch — almost a guaranteed strike — or allow the count to go against them.
In the fifth, Kay again seemed blind to the circumstances heavy rain had created: You know the Yankees are not working the count because they figure Porcello’s going to be ahead, 0-2. O’Neill added Porcello is a guy who throws a lot of strikes.
In 2017, the Packers started 4-1 before Rodgers got hurt. They finished the year 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008. It’s easy to make the argument that Rodgers single-handedly makes the Packers a playoff contender, and he does so on a salary that is relatively cheap at the position.
So there really isn’t too much urgency for the Packers to force a deal when they can keep the quarterback for two more seasons at that reasonable price. Then, he could be franchised in 2020, and possibly 2021 as well, before Green Bay would likely have no choice but to lose him in 2022, months after his 39th birthday.
That leaves plenty of time for a contract to get done, but now is when an extension needs to happen. If it doesn’t, the leverage will tilt decidedly in Rodgers’ favor and his age will only make the Packers more hesitant to commit significantly.
