NFL World Reacts to Missed Tripping Penalty in Bills-Chiefs Game

(Sports Illustrated) People couldn’t believe that there was no flag on this play. Sunday’s matchup between the Bills and Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium lived up to the billing, with Buffalo winning a thriller by a final score of 24–20.

I’d say it’s still pretty damn strong, considering that Jordan Poole signed a four-year extension worth up to $140 million on Saturday morning, and then, Saturday afternoon, Andrew Wiggins agreed to a new four-year, $109 million extension.
