Cam Newton. Randall Cunningham.’ data-reactid=”17″>Jackson is the best running quarterback in NFL history. Better than Fran Tarkenton. Steve Young. Bobby Douglass. Cam Newton. Randall Cunningham.

And Vick.

Vick has been the standard bearer for running quarterbacks, the athletic freak who was the fastest player on the field and had the arm to throw it 70 yards downfield. Vick’s legacy changed with the dogfighting scandal. But as a player? His highlight reel was unmatched.

Until Jackson, the Heisman Trophy winner from Louisville, came into the NFL.

there was also no review. That’s troubling. ‘ data-reactid=”90″>The Cardinals threw to Pharoh Cooper on their final play, trailing 30-27. Bucs cornerback Jamel Dean got there early, hitting Cooper in the back. There was no call, which isn’t the most egregious error. It was a close play. But there was also no review. That’s troubling. 

The NFL should have the same set of transparency standards it has for its coaches and players. Bucs coach Bruce Arians complained about that earlier this season. The NFL should have an official immediately explain why it wasn’t reviewed. Had it been reviewed, an official should explain the ruling. That’s not too much to ask. That non-call could have changed who won the game. 

Officiating in the NFL is hard. There will always be mistakes. But the league could do itself a favor by explaining its decision-making process more often. 

Unfortunately, the Chiefs defense looked familiar too.

Needing a stop at the end to beat the Tennessee Titans, the Chiefs let Ryan Tannehill beat them. Tannehill completed a 23-yard touchdown to Adam Humphries with 23 seconds left to cap a four-play, 61-yard drive that took less than a minute. Tannehill ran over safety Juan Thornhill at the goal line on the two-point conversion, which summed up the Chiefs’ day on defense. The Titans won 35-32 when Harrison Butker’s 52-yard field-goal attempt was blocked (maybe with a non-call on an offisdes helping out the Titans).

The Chiefs are dealing with injuries on both sides of the ball. But as teams like the Ravens are taking steps forward as Super Bowl contenders and the Oakland Raiders are winning games in the AFC West, the Chiefs defense continues to be a question mark.

After losing to the Browns, the skepticism will continue.

The Bills took a fourth-quarter lead at Cleveland, then the defense couldn’t hold. The Browns drove all the way downfield and Baker Mayfield — who needed something to go right this season — tossed a go-ahead touchdown pass to Rashard Higgins. Then Stephen Hauschka missed a long field goal and the Browns won 19-16.

The Bills’ schedule is still weak down the stretch, so it seems like they’ll be a wild-card team. But there will be plenty of people wondering how good they really are.
