7 things we learned in the Titans’ 36-22 win over the Colts
The Tennessee Titans defense held in the red zone with just over two minutes remaining to force a turnover on downs. A 72-yard touchdown for Derrick Henry a few plays later secured a 36-22 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football.
Each is in a new place for different reasons, but like Charles, yearn to prove their old teams made a mistake. That it’s not over.
The memories in Kansas City are there, Charles said. It’s normal to lose yourself in those. But reality is it’s the past. It’s behind me. I’ve got something in front of me. I’ve got goals.
Nine Charles seasons in Kansas City and now he is gone.
Charles turns 31 in December, played at Texas, was a Chiefs third-round pick in 2008, and has been one of the NFL’s most electric players.
People of color and women increased their presence in the category of team professional administrators. The percentage of people of color in team professional administrative positions substantially increased from 22 percent in 2016 to 27.3 percent in 2017. Women in these positions also increased significantly from 33.2 percent in 2016 to 35.9 percent in 2017. This was the highest percent of women in professional administration positions since 2007.
Teams need to follow the example set by the league office, as percentages for women at the team level remain significantly below those at the league level. The NFL continues to make progress on and off the field regarding racial and gender hiring practices and I am sure that athlete activism will help even more as the NFL moves its teams to follow its example as it embraces diversity and inclusion.
Both were off to a slow start this season.
Watt had yet to post a single sack, and Mercilus had just one. But having them on the field occupies offensive linemen and helps open things up for guys like Jadeveon Clowney and inside linebacker Benardrick McKinney.
With Watt out, the Texans are likely to shift Clowney around the formation and have him spend some time at defensive end, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson. That will help fill the void left by Watt’s absence.
The Texans are also flying former Bears and Raiders outside linebacker Lamarr Houston in for a workout, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Houston is also visiting with the Bucs, so there’s competition for his services. But Houston played in just two games for the Bears last year, contributing four tackles and no sacks.

His goal is a lofty 1 million dollars, and he has already raised nearly $10,000 in just a few hours.
In addition to Gomes, seven teams that call San Francisco and the North Bay area their home are coming together to donate $450,000 to ongoing fire relief efforts. As reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, each team released a small statement about the fires and their donation.
That moment feels like it happened ages ago because times are different now. That win pushed those Lions to a 2-8 record, a marked improvement from the season they had the year prior, but the stakes simply aren’t the same anymore; they haven’t been any higher for Matthew the recipient of the richest contract in NFL history this past offseason or the Lions as an organization for that matter.
