Honoring a legend

“I Think You Should Leave” star Tim Robinson was on hand to cheer on his Lions on Sunday, along with fellow actor Sam Richardson, who brought a ski mask at the direction of CJ Gardner-Johnson.

“I’m talking to America here, excuse me.”

Geno Smith thought he had avoided an intentional grounding on a play early in the fourth quarter, but the Seahawks QB couldn’t avoid the penalty.

So Smith turned to the referee to express his displeasure with the call, while the referee was on the microphone delivering a message to Smith for everyone to hear.

The Chargers opted for two rather than settling for just an extra point after scoring a touchdown in the first quarter that gave them a 9-0 lead. But they had chosen a trick when Justin Herbert threw a pass to a wide-open Trey Pipkins, who plays on the Titans’ offensive line.

The play garnered a lot of attention on social media, including FOX Sports’ and former NFL offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz, who dubbed the play “ThiccTwo.”
