Chiefs, Browns, and Cowboys Plummet In NFL Week Six Action, Correa Hits Decisive Homer In Extras To Down Yankees

Grace Higgins | October 14th, 2019

The Kansas City Chiefs came into the NFL season as one of the favorites to go, and possibly win, the Super Bowl. And they started out very well, going 4-0 in their opening four outings. However, the wheels have come off of late, and they lost for the second consecutive week on Sunday when they dropped to a 31-24 loss at home to the Houston Texans, a team that’s been far from convincing themselves. Pat Mahomes is clearly not 100% healthy and they have a rash of other injuries as well on the offensive side of the ball, but it’s still a big worry. Mahomes had three TD’s but had fewer yards than DeShaun Watson did. The Texans were also aided by a big day from running back Carlos Hyde, who racked up 116 yards and a TD on 26 carries. Both teams are now 4-2 on the season.

The Cleveland Browns also came into the season with a tremendous amount of hype, but that train has been slowed dramatically so far after six games. They are now 2-4 on the season, with all three of their home games turning out to be losses to this point. It’s just not a good look for them at all. On Sunday afternoon, they lost 32-28 to the Seattle Seahawks, who once again got a big performance out of Russell Wilson under center. He had 295 yards in the air and three TD’s (two throwing and one rushing) to help push them past the Browns, who saw Baker Mayfield throw three picks. Nick Chubb, though, did have a big game at running back, scampering for 122 yards and two TD’s in the defeat.

Field Gulls

A third team that had looked good in the opening weeks but have since fallen off a lot are the Dallas Cowboys. They, perhaps, hit a new all-time low on Sunday when they lost to the previously 0-4 New York Jets by a score of 24-22. Sam Darnold, fresh from his bout with Mono, lead the Jets with 338 yards passing and two TD’s. Wide receiver Robby Anderson had a big day with five catches for 125 yards, one of which was a 92-yard TD. The loss was the third in a row for the Cowboys, who had been 3-0 after week three.

The Houston Astros came into Game 2 of their ALCS with the New York Yankees knowing they could not afford to lose and go down 2-0 in the series. With Justin Verlander dealing on the mound, they would have been confident in evening up the series. It was not easy, with their ace giving up a pair of runs, but they eventually did get the job done. Carlos Correa was the hero of the day. He doubled in the second inning to give them a 1-0 advantage. However, Aaron Judge hit a two-run bomb in the fourth to put the Bronx Bombers up 2-1. George Springer knotted up matters in the fifth with a solo shot of his own, and that was all the scoring until we got to the bottom of the 11th. That’s when Correa stepped up and hit a towering homer to seal the 3-2 walkoff win, sending the series to New York all squared up.
