Scene of the Week: Joe Burrow Wins the 2019 Heisman Trophy

Over the weekend, LSU QB Joe Burrow won the 2019 Heisman Trophy. In a historic season, Burrow threw for 48 TDs, 4,715 yards, and led LSU to a 13-0 season as well as the No. 1 seed in the CFB Playoff. 

When accepting his Heisman Trophy, Burrow thanked Head Coach Ed Orgeron for giving him a chance and for everything he did for him at LSU. Burrow only threw for 2,900 yards and 16 TDs last season and was nowhere close to being a Heisman Trophy winner. Now, Burrow is just that, and he has the Tigers within striking distance of the College Football Playoff National Championship.

Congrats on a great season, Joe.

Take of the Week: Bills Upset Patriots Next Week in Foxborough  

The Buffalo Bills are one of the more underrated NFL teams this season. Sitting at 10-4, this team has it all. A solid QB in Josh Allen, a Coach of the Year candidate in Sean McDermott, and a top five defense. This team is legit. In a crucial divisional game next week against New England, I believe this Bills team will shock the world. 

The only thing the Patriots are playing for is home-field advantage, as they clinched a playoff berth this past Sunday against the Bengals. And while this Patriots team defeated the Bengals by a significant margin, they did not look graceful doing it. We are finally seeing Tom Brady age, and this defense does not look as good as they did earlier in the year after a few mediocre performances. I think this pattern will continue next week against Buffalo, as the Bills notch their 11th win. 

Navy Defeats Army in The Army-Navy Game

Navy defeated Army this past Saturday in one of the best rivalries and traditions in all of American sports. Army got off to a 7-0 lead, but Navy answered, scoring 31 straight points and defeating Army. Navy QB Malcolm Perry ran the ball 29 times, totaling 304 yards and two TDs.

Army has not lost to Navy for four straight years — until now. Army QB Christian Anderson was 2/4 for 18 yards, but had 56 yards on the ground.

Navy finishes 10-2, and Army finishes 5-8.
