I’m not sure if Kelce was short; it seemed like the ball was across the plane when he first put his hands on it. But it seemed like a classic Calvin Johnson/Dez Bryant incompletion; he caught it going to the ground and didn’t maintain control all the way.

Allan clearly thought he couldn’t spike it after juggling the snap. Anyone know the rule?
Item 3. Stopping Clock. A player under center is permitted to stop the game clock legally to save time if, immediately upon receiving the snap, he begins a continuous throwing motion and throws the ball directly into the ground.

Item 4. Delayed Spike. A passer, after delaying his passing action for strategic purposes, is prohibited from throwing the ball to the ground in front of him, even though he is under no pressure from defensive rusher(s).

I don't think a bobble would count as "strategic purposes", so he should be good to spike it after a bobble.

McDaniels obviously won't get fired this year, but starting 0-3 will certainly draw some criticism for a team that was supposed to contend.

False start on 3rd and 1 in the red zone because of a delay of game in the red zone for the Raiders.

Tua collapsed on the field. I'm calling BS on whatever doctor evaluated him.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more disjointed football game than this Miami/Buffalo second half.
There seems like there’s been an injury, penalty, or ref huddle after virtually every play.

OMG, why did Miami throw the ball there? I guess that Dolphins terrible O-Line might end up costing them this game.
