The move should buoy Pierre Garcon’s WR2 value, while perhaps making Marquise Goodwin and George Kittle more attractive matchups plays, but another receiver who becomes interesting to watch during the Garoppolo era is slot man Trent Taylor.
Brady, meanwhile, now has a clear path to holding the Patriots’ starting job for however long he wants it, which is great news for dynasty owners despite the fact that he’s playing the 2017 season at the age of 40. The veteran hasn’t shown any sign of decline and might well still contribute at a high level as a 41-year-old.
In fact, the two guys Indiana acquired from Oklahoma City in last summer’s widely-panned deal for George, became the catalysts in only the Pacers’ third win over the Spurs since 2007.
Oladipo finished with 23 points and five assists and led the Pacers in scoring for the sixth time in six games. Domantas Sabonis added 22 points and 12 rebounds, both career highs, while going 9 of 9 from the field.
However, he was mostly inconsistent on the road. Trubisky made some blatant rookie errors, forcing balls into coverage, tossing wide and behind several receivers.
The Bears had a spectacular third-quarter touchdown catch by tight end Zach Miller shockingly overturned after review. It appeared from every TV replay angle that Miller came down with the ball, but officials deemed the veteran didn’t control it through the process. To make matters worse, Miller suffered a brutal injury on the play. Fox confirmed after the game that Miller dislocated his knee and was taken to a local hospital.
No. 5 seed — Bills (5-2): Second place, AFC East. Buffalo has improved on its 4-2 start from 2016 to, possibly, be on its way to ending its 18-year playoff drought. Dominating in turnover margin is a good profile, something it will need to keep up through a much tougher second half of the season, including New England twice.
