Late in the first quarter of Saturday’s Dolphins-Ravens preseason tilt, Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso brought down Maxx Williams on a short completion on third-and-17, forcing the Ravens to bring on their field goal unit. Alonso kind of rolled off of Williams, then trotted over to the sideline. The Ravens sideline:
Kiko Alonso drilled Joe Flacco in the head as the Ravens quarterback attempted to slide late in the first half tonight in Baltimore, sending Flacco to the locker room and drawing face-to-face anger from Ravens head coach John Harbaugh.
A truly shocking, star-for-star trade happens so rarely in the NFL. (Today is the 11th anniversary of Champ Bailey heading west for Clinton Portis!) The Bills swapping talented young LB Kiko Alonso for Eagles star RB LeSean McCoy absolutely qualifies. But as we're learning today, it wasn't so clean as all of that.
From Adam Schefter, here's an unexpected swap: The Bills will trade linebacker Kiko Alonso to the Eagles for running back LeSean McCoy. Damn.
Sean from Buffalo claims to have witnessed a very unorthodox transaction before Sunday’s game against the Chiefs:
It's Election Day in America, that rare and hallowed opportunity for constituents to turn the wheels of democracy, make the country a better place, and for at least one concerned citizen, impress the #BillsMafia by throwing away his vote.
