Scenes 9.23: Big Moves in Football

Moment of the Week: Patriots Release WR Antonio Brown 

Earlier this week, the New England Patriots announced they will be releasing star WR, Antonio Brown due to questionable eligibility and behavior. His tenure in New England only lasted 13 days, and now the question remains: Where will he play?

Brown is also at the center of new allegations of sexual assault and has been sending menacing texts to the accuser.Antonio Brown caught for 66 yards and scored one TD for the Pats but now will never have any significant impact on the Patriots. 

Antonio Brown’s future remains very uncertain. Today, he re-enrolled back at Central Michigan.

Take of the Week: Washington Defeats the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football

Washington has been playing some pretty bad football these past two weeks, losing 32-27 against the Philadelphia Eagles and 31-21 against the Dallas Cowboys. This team will keep Greg Manusky and Jay Gruden’s job for one more week and will defeat the Bears on MNF. 

Washington fans have never been a group with very high expectations. But I want to see more hype and confidence for Monday’s game. With the way he’s been playing, Case Keenum will dominate against this Bears’ defense, we’ll hopefully see a good running performance by AP, and a TD or two from McLaurin. 

Now the real question: How will their defense play? It’ll probably start out looking good, but I see it wearing down a bit. I do still see Washington pulling off a win in the end. Mitch Trubisky of the Bears has not been playing well, and Washington needs to take advantage of that. We’ll see a big game from Jimmy Moreland, hopefully a Jonathan Allen performance, and a solid night on both sides of the football. Ultimately, I see Washington taking the W and improving to 1-2. 

#13 Wisconsin Defeats #11 Michigan 35-14 in Blowout Win

The Wisconsin Badgers dominated the Michigan Wolverines in a 35-14 win on Saturday, keeping Wisconsin undefeated on the year and sending Michigan to 2-1 on the season. It’s a bizarre instance, as many had Michigan winning the game and even going to the Playoff. However, Michigan took its first loss of the season, and will need to win out to have a shot at the Playoff.

Braves and Yankees Both Clinch Playoff Berths

The Atlanta Braves and New York Yankees are both headed to the MLB Playoffs, with the Yankees winning the AL East and the Braves winning the NL East. 

The Yankees are headed back to the postseason for the third straight year with a legitimate shot at winning the World Series this time. The Yankees have won 101 games this season, and it looks as though they’ll win some more with a bit of time left in the MLB season.

The Atlanta Braves have clinched their second straight NL East Title and are heading to the postseason. Led by Ronald Acuna and Ozzie Albies, this young team looks to win titles for years to come with even a World Series in the mix.
