This and That

 

Week of September 17th, 2018

Each week I'll write about the world of sports:

*Ryan Fitzpatrick is off to a great start with back-to-back 400-plus yard passing games. Patrick Mahomes had six TD passes vs. the Steelers. WOW!

*If Tampa Bay’s Blake Snell doesn’t win the AL Cy Young Award, there should be an investigation. He is 19-5 with a great ERA.

*One of the biggest disappointments of the college football season has been Florida State. The Seminoles lost 30-7 at Syracuse.

*Nebraska has started slowly under Scott Frost. The Cornhuskers lost at home to Troy.

*LSU got a huge road win at Auburn. BYU had one of the shocks of the weekend, winning at Wisconsin.
