Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes’ jersey is a best seller — in two pro sports leagues | Kansas City Star

Mahomes’ jersey is currently No. 3 on Fanatics’ site, too. Oh, and he also has a jersey at No. 2.

Confused? Well, Mahomes’ No. 15 Chiefs jersey is third behind Brady and Miami’s Tua Tagovailoa.

But his No. 15 Royals jersey is also among the top-sellers in Major League Baseball. This is from Fanatic’s list of most popular jerseys:

Mahomes, who joined the Royals ownership group earlier this year, has shown off the Royals’ No. 15 jersey before: at the 2019 “Big Slick” softball game at Kauffman Stadium.

Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce turns his passion into fashion brand Tru Kolors | Kansas City Business Journal

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is seeing success on the field and with his fashion brand Tru Kolors. Recently, Pepsi bought $10,000 worth of his latest design, a limited-time T-shirt release that benefits his foundation Eighty-Seven & Running, for its frontline workers.

Myles Garrett wants Tyreek Hill and DK Metcalf to race, star wideouts react | Clutch Points

Garrett, whose Browns defeated the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, needs to see the two star wideouts race. Upon seeing Garrett’s wish, Hill reacted on Twitter, followed by Metcalf reacting to Hill’s tweet.

The entire NFL world needs to see this race happen. Tyreek Hill and DK Metcalf are clearly not from this planet. Both guys have incredible speed and Myles Garrett–who is a freak of nature as well–wants to see a race between the two NFL playmakers so everyone can know who the faster guy is.

Tyrann Mathieu Says 1 NFL QB Is ‘Really Underrated’ | The Spun

The Lions’ 3-3 record may not show it, but per usual, Stafford is having a terrific season thus far. Mathieu thinks the Lions quarterback is “really underrated.”

“Stafford is really underrated! He is Good man,” Mathieu said via Twitter on Monday evening.

The Chiefs safety must have watched Stafford’s highlights versus the Atlanta Falcons Sunday afternoon. The Lions quarterback was brilliant during the eventual game-winning drive.

This week’s game: vs. Jets

The Chiefs have won comfortably in the last two weeks without the injured Sammy Watkins, which can’t be a welcome narrative in a contract year.

NFL Week 7 grades from around the league | YardBarker

The Chiefs went 0-for-9 on third down and won by 27 points. That is the second-highest victory margin for a team that failed to convert a third down, per the Elias Sports Bureau. Denver’s recent issues with basic football sequences in this rivalry made it difficult to gauge Kansas City’s performance, but with the Chiefs (6-1) forcing four turnovers and scoring two non-offensive TDs, they navigated an increasingly shorter hurdle with ease.

Business of Football: Buccaneers Hope Antonio Brown Has Changed; Le’Veon Bell Lands With Chiefs | SI

Bell made $15 million in 2019—barely more than what he forfeited in 2018—and had $6 million of an offset guarantee (reduced by any new compensation) remaining with the Jets when they released him. He has now signed with the Chiefs for a minimum contract. Perhaps he accepted less only to minimally reduce the Jets’ obligation, but a more likely explanation is that while other teams were interested, there was a soft market for a back for whom the Jets couldn’t even muster a low draft pick in a trade.

Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (fractured finger) undergoes surgery, to miss Week 8 | NFL.com

Buccaneers wideout Chris Godwin fractured his left index finger while making a touchdown catch in Sunday’s win over the Raiders, which required surgery Tuesday, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero confirmed via a source informed of the situation. Godwin could return to game action as soon as Week 9.

Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times first reported the news.

Godwin has already missed multiple games in 2020 due to a concussion and a hamstring injury. When available, he’s been productive, catching 25 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns.

NFL Week 8 Coach Hot Seat Rankings 2020: Adam Gase clearly at the top, Matt Patricia making strides

3. Matt Patricia - Lions

Well played, sir.

The current two-game win streak, capped by an impressive come-from-behind victory over the Atlanta Falcons at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Week 7, definitely buys Patricia some much needed slack in the rope. That said, having dropped three of their first four games entering a season wherein Patricia was viewed as a hot seat candidate, his recent round of success doesn’t absolve him of all of his sins — which is why he’s on this list, albeit in a much more chilled capacity than Gase and Marrone.

Source: Baltimore Ravens signing Dez Bryant to practice squad | ESPN

Bryant, 31, could become a physical possession-type receiver for reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson and can complement the speed of Marquise Brown.

The addition of Bryant might lead to a high-profile reunion on Dec. 3, when the Ravens play host to the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday Night Football. Bryant starred for the Cowboys for eight seasons, totaling 531 receptions for 7,459 yards and a franchise-record 73 touchdown catches.

“Obviously, that’s kind of like an ‘OG’-type guy,” Ravens tight end Mark Andrews said when asked about Bryant on Monday. “He’s been around the league for a long, long time. He actually followed me on Twitter a year or two ago, so I’m excited to meet him, and I’m excited to [be] around him hopefully, and just learn.”

3. Seattle Seahawks (2nd)

Everyone wants to talk about DK Metcalf’s chase down tackle — and rightly so! It was awesome. Great hustle.

4. Baltimore Ravens (3rd)

A bye week just before they face the Steelers could be very handy.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6th)

Tom Brady might just be in the MVP race, everybody.
