Siciliano rushes over to the screen when he sees Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters pick up the penalty flag and throw it into the stands, and can’t believe where it lands. “Oh! We’ve got [three] kids in yarmulkes with a flag! Man, oh man!”
Of all the day’s plays, this one’s special for the 43-year-old son of an Italian father and Jewish mother from Reston, Va.
The Bengals were smart to keep Marvin Lewis. When the Cincinnati Bengals announced Marvin Lewis agreed to a two-year contract extension, the Twitterverse was outraged at the prospect of a coach with zero playoff wins in 15 seasons keeping his job.

Ryan was fired by the Jets; Enemkpali was released after sucker-punching/cheap-shotting teammate Geno Smith, breaking his jaw. Pure class, that Ryan.
That’s why Gruden could be more comfortable Cheap Bike Jerseys watching Cousins walk out the door and handing the QB1 job to Colt McCoy. While you’re Cheap Chelsea Jerseys likely snickering at the suggestion of the eighth-year pro taking over as the team’s starter, you should remember he almost swiped the job from Cousins and Robert Griffin III in 2014 when he completed 71.1 percent of his passes for 1,057 yards and compiled a 4:3 touchdown-to-interception ratio in five appearances (four starts).
