Kansas City Chiefs outside linebacker Justin Houston is destroying the Denver Broncos’ offensive line and getting pressure on quarterback Trevor Siemian consistently on Sunday Night Football.
Ty Sambrailo is playing right tackle for the Broncos, and he’s simply no match for Houston.
Houston blows by Sambrailo, gets to Siemian and chases him down for the sack. It was Houston’s second sack of the evening.
It didn’t take long for Houston to add a third sack, and this one paid dramatic dividends.
After the Raiders were penalized for roughing the passer on Sunday, Newton capped off the drive with a 3-yard rushing touchdown to tie things up, 7-7, in Oakland.
At the time, Turner said he hadn’t made a decision on whether or not he’d coach again — he’s only 64. Since then, he’s made it clear that he would like to continue under the right circumstances.
Where exactly would that be? Los Angeles invested a ton of draft capital in Jared Goff, and his career’s already off to a slow start. If the Rams opt to keep Jeff Fisher, you have to wonder if he could he bring in Turner and let him run the offense however he wants. Or, if Fisher gets fired, maybe the prospect of Turner as head coach could force the Rams to give him a look.
After Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Calais Campbell wasn’t flagged for a low hit on Newton in Week 8, Newton said it was “taking the fun out of the game” for him. League sources said that the hit should have been penalized, and Newton spoke to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about the hits he was taking and the lack of flags.
Siemian did this while under consistent pressure from an aggressive Chiefs defensive front. Justin Houston sacked Siemian three times, including one safety.
Kendall Reyes added another sack in regulation. Tamba Hali sacked Siemian once in overtime.
