Jones completed 15 of 24 passes. Denver’s Charley John son was tops in touchdown passes with three while two old AFC stand bys Joe Namath and Bob Griese were victimized for a league high four interceptions. Simpson was the only AFC player to crack the 100 yard barrier and he would have broken the 200 yard mark had not two long runs been called back because of Buffalo penal tics.
Splitting hairs here. Denver has Matt Prater, who set an NFL record with a 64 yard field goal, has the highest field goal percentage in franchise history (82.9), and made his first Pro Bowl. Denver Trindon Holliday has returned both kicks and punts for touchdowns in each of the past two seasons.
Will keep pushing for that. If you end up in a series against Boston or Tampa (which is in first place in the Atlantic Division with 73 points and has two games in hand on the Leafs), where it goes six, seven games, home ice would be very important. It something we going to keep grinding for.
NASHVILLE (Times Free Press) UPDATE: An effort to ban child marriage in Tennessee could get new life Monday, with the Republican controlled House expected to consider letting a subcommittee weigh reversing its decision to delay action until 2019.Majority Leader Glen Casada, R Franklin, who made the motion last week in the Civil Justice Subcommittee to shuttle the bill off for summer study, said he reconsidered after later learning about the number of children who are married to adults in Tennessee.Read more from our news partners at the Chattanooga Times Free Press.?PREVIOUS STORY: NASHVILLE (AP) A Republican led Tennessee House panel has killed a bill to ban child marriage because a socially conservative lobbyist argued it interferes with his state legal challenge of same sex marriage.The House Civil Justice Subcommittee voted Wednesday to halt consideration this session of legislation to limit marriage to only people 18 years or older. Republican House Majority Leader Glen Casada requested the delay at the urging of Family Action Council of Tennessee President David Fowler, a lawyer and ex state senator who is originally from Chattanooga.Fowler contended that because the bill deals with marriage licenses, it interferes with his lawsuit.Democratic bill sponsor Rep. Darren Jernigan of Old Hickory called it disgraceful and said he’s embarrassed for Tennessee.Democratic Senate sponsor Jeff Yarbro has said some girls as young as 10 have married adult men in Tennessee.
Clark Kerr: Here lies the greatest omelet maker in all of Cal Dining. No one else has ever been spotted making omelets during brunch because the outcry would be enormous. The man brings his own radio and always has it tuned to classic hip hop. So I’m always on edge wondering what the next day will bring.”Such concerns, Favre said, led to his relationship with Brock, a company that manufactures shock absorbing padding that goes under turf fields. Brock pays him a fee for attending events and speaking on behalf of the company.Favre thinks the only way football head injuries will decline “is if the guys get smaller, slower and weaker, and that’s not going to happen.” But he said he believes “a more detailed focus on the turf and the underlying surface” is the logical next step for people concerned about the game’s safety.A recent study from Boston University found further evidence linking the onset of CTE to hits to the head rather than concussions, differentiating between concussions and traumatic brain injuries. And the Concussion Legacy Foundation whose founder, Chris Nowinski, appears in the documentary cites a study of high school concussions published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine that found one in five concussions were caused by the ground.Those findings, Favre said, surprised him.”I’ll be honest with you, the talk in regards to the turf never crossed my mind,” he said.
