Patriots, Chiefs Remain Unbeaten In Poor Showings, NL Central Sorted Out, Changes Coming Next Year, George Out For Clippers Until November

Grace Higgins | September 30th, 2019

It’s long been said that one of the keys to being a championship winning team is knowing how to win a game when you are not at your best. On Sunday, that’s exactly what both the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs did on the road to improve to 4-0 on the season. The Patriots got a 16-10 win in Buffalo over the previously undefeated Bills, but it was far from pretty. In fact, they had nearly seen a 13-0 lead erased as the Bills came back from the brink. Josh Allen was woeful under center going 13-28 with three interceptions before being forced to leave due to injury. His replacement Matt Barkley, however, still had a chance to lead them to the win with under two minutes to go. That came up short, though, as Jamie Collins rushed his pass and caused their fourth INT of the game to seal it. The Chiefs also played a wild game in Detroit, but in the end they outlasted the Lions to win 34-30. Pat Mahomes was not himself, failing to throw for a touchdown all day, but he still had 315 yards over the air to help them win it. Darrel Williams, their running back, was the hero with two fourth quarter TD runs, including one with 20 seconds left that saw them through as eventual winners. Along with the idle San Francisco 49ers, the pair are the only undefeated teams left at the moment in the NFL after almost four complete weeks of action.

Pats Pulpit

There was a ton of notable news to be made aware of on Sunday in the NL Central. Not only did the St. Louis Cardinals finally clinch the division victory with a 9-0 win over the Chicago Cubs, thus holding off the streaking Milwaukee Brewers, but the Cubs also saw manager Joe Maddon manage his final game with the club in the rout. Maddon will not return to the team after five seasons at the helm and one World Series title. To say it’s been a success for him would be an understatement. The win for the Cards, which was led by seven strong innings from Jack Flaherty and a three-run homer from Matt Carpenter, ensures they will face the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS beginning on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Brewers will have to settle for the Wild Card Game, and they will take on the Washington Nationals on the road in the one-game affair on Tuesday to see who gets a shot at the Los Angeles Dodgers.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

It has largely been a good year for the Los Angeles Clippers, but they got a bit of rotten news on Sunday that will tone down their celebrations just a little bit. Paul George, one of the two big names they got in the summer, along with Kawhi Leonard, will be missing some of the early parts of the NBA season due to surgeries done on his shoulders. He will be in camp, but he won’t be actively participating and able to absorb contact at the moment. The season begins for them on October 22nd, so he will be targeting a return date of somewhere in November as he comes back home to play with his new teammates.
