Vic Fangio was supposed to be on the hot seat. Instead, he has Denver atop the AFC West.
Vic Fangio has a rejoinder ready for anyone downplaying Denver’s first 3-0 start in five years just because the Broncos' opponents are a combined 0-9. Just like there's no denying the Broncos are tied with Las Vegas atop the topsy-turvy AFC West, two games ahead of the two-time defending AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs. A week after holding 2021 top draft pick Trevor Lawrence to 118 passing yards, Denver's defense held the second overall pick, Zach Wilson, to 160 yards Sunday while sacking him five times, intercepting him twice and stopping him twice more on downs.
Justin Tucker kicked the longest field goal in NFL history as the Baltimore Ravens claimed a dramatic win over the Detroit Lions. The four-time Pro Bowler - widely regarded as one of the best kickers of all time - attempted a 66-yard effort as time expired in Sunday’s close clash at Ford Field, with his kick incredibly bouncing up off the crossbar and through to spark wild scenes of jubilation among the Ravens players. The kick sealed a narrow 19-17 victory for Baltimore over Detroit, with John Harbaugh’s team moving to 2-1 after their memorable win over the defending AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2.
