He channeled Kirk Cousins' "you like that" celebration as he ran through the tunnel at U.S. Bank Stadium. The Vikings had two first downs at the half to 13 for the Bills. While McDermott repeatedly said all week, that it would be a joint effort in terms of play-calling on defense, he clearly had enough faith in his defensive coordinator to give him a chance to bounce back.
This might come as a surprise to some, as there has been alleged tension between the two former teammates in the past. Last Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Jaguars was a poor showing from the Patriots passing attack that we weren't used to seeing, and apparently, Brady was upset at his receiving corps for not "doing their job".
I think the passing game will be sharper and the defense will keep the Packers from being in third and short too often. Rodgers saw his Week 1 fantasy output almost cut in half by the Vikings last week and the Redskins will be focused on forcing him to make plays on his bad leg.
Sunday night's Patriots-Lions game already has an added storyline with Detroit coach Matt Patricia, New England's former defensive coordinator, going against his old team for the first time. The deal was thwarted when Gronkowski threatened to retire if he was shipped off to Motown. The Patriots then called off any proposed trade with the Lions, leaving Detroit disappointed.
The home side should have made the breakthrough after 77 minutes, the unmarked Yarmolenko heading wide from close range after Snodgrass had picked him out with a teasing cross.

Olivier Giroud won his battle with Alvaro Morata for a starting spot up front for Chelsea , keeping his place for the second Premier League match in succession.
Ronaldo was dismissed during Juve's 2-0 Champions League win after appearing to pull defender Jeison Murillo's hair. The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body may extend the mandatory one-match ban. He is forgetting it's a group game but he has been brought in to win Juventus the Champions League. The Italian side's coach Massimiliano Allegri lamented the lack of a Video Assistant Referee against Valencia , which he believes would have spared his key player.
