Buffalo Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes on Monday passionately rebuked Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly’s reaction to about a dozen Bills players who knelt during the national anthem before Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos.
Hughes said he does not understand why Kelly is typically on the sideline before Bills games at New Era Field, adding, “We are the 2017 Buffalo Bills.” Hughes also suggested that Kelly is “dividing” the team.
Kelly stood on the sideline and held his right hand over his chest and raised his Bills hat with his left arm during Sunday’s anthem. He later posted a photo of himself on Instagram with a message that said he would only kneel to pray. Kelly also wrote that he hoped the Bills would “STAND” and lock arms before Sunday’s game in Atlanta.
It would have been hard to imagine this game going over 56.5 points at halftime. LSU led 14-3 as bettors on the under just needed to avoid a 40-point second half.
The teams combined for 30 points in the third quarter and all of sudden the under was in serious jeopardy entering the fourth. Two touchdowns in the final six minutes, capped off by D.J. Chark’s 20-yard score with 1:52 left, made this game one to forget if you took the under.
Heavy rain and storms is usually a thing of beauty for bettors on the under. That looked to be the case in Colorado Springs on Saturday before a lightning delay changed the course of the game.
Air Force led 9-0 with 7:56 remaining in the second quarter when the teams were sent to the locker room. After an 88-minute delay, San Diego State would start to find its offensive groove. A pair of Rashaad Penny touchdowns gave the Aztecs a 14-9 lead entering the fourth, with the under still looking good. But the teams combined for four touchdowns in less than a seven-minute span, capped off by Penny’s third score of the game with 5:39 left that not only put San Diego State up for good, but cost those on the under a winning bet.
