The Astros and Rangers will play their three-game series this week in St. Petersburg at Tropicana Field instead of in Houston. The Rays decided to do more than just allow the two Texas teams to use their facilities:
All ticket, concessions and parking revenues from this three-game series are being donated to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
Mike Bibby Game Jersey There is still a lot of football to played, but people are really high on the Jaguars after their Week 1 performance. That is the biggest NFL surprise after Week 1. Hopefully the Titans can go down there and bring the Jags expectations back to where they probably should be — as a team that has a really good offense but is going to struggle to score points.
I think for me, watching week one offered this potentially surprising thought: what the hell (was Washington) working on in the preseason to come out so flat against a divisional opponent out of the gates? I was surprised that Kirk had trouble with his accuracy, given he is one of the most accurate quarterbacks in NFL history (still #3 overall … ALL-TIME).
But Fowler looked every bit the part of a No. 3 overall draft pick with his performance in the season opener. He had three tackles, two sacks, one fumble recovery, and a touchdown. It was the best box score a defensive end has had in a long, long time.
Even more surprising — not only is Smith the top QB in the league, but Tom Brady (yes, that Tom Brady) is among the worst (24th out of 30 if you haven’t bothered to click the link).
