Munich/Cincinnati - It was an afternoon for the history books as the Cincinnati Bengals won the divisional playoffs at the Tennessee Titans.Not only did the guests from Ohio end their long dry spell in terms of away wins in the playoffs, but the Titans also set a record: Joe Burrow was sacked nine times, a playoff high. The reason for this lies not only in the Titans' excellent pass rush, but also in the Bengals' holey offensive line.Burrow injured by weak O-Line - Chase over Sewell in draftThis isn't a new problem with the Bengals. Already in 2020, the protection for the Bengals quarterback was almost non-existent. Cincinnati's tackles were and are maliciously referred to as "revolving doors."It was not for nothing that Joe Burrow, first pick in the 2020 draft, had to watch almost h...

Giants continue to rely on Daniel Jones, Watson not an issue

Munich/New York – Even under the new general manager Joe Schoen, Daniel Jones continues to enjoy full confidence with the New York Giants. "The boy has good physical abilities. He has the arm strength, he's athletic and he can walk," said new general manager Joe Schoen at his first press conference. "I'm really looking forward to working with Daniel. When the new staff is here - meaning the offensive coordinator, the head coach, all the staff - then we're going to build an offense around Daniel and through that bring out what he does best can."

That was something I carried on my shoulders." This conversation took place when Chase was still playing for Archbishop Rummel High School in Metairie, Louisiana.Ja'Marr Chase should act as a cornerback Miles wanted to put Chase on defense instead.

Resignation – if you were to ask him now

Munich – Rob Gronkowski does it like buddy Tom Brady: He takes his time. Gathering distance to rest after a bitter divisional round playoff loss with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
