Baltimore beats Indianapolis on Monday Night. Raiders: coach Gruden resigns

Success in comeback for the Ravens thanks to a super Jackson. Las Vegas: Head coach leaves sexist and racist epithets after

Baltimore wins the Monday Night of the fifth NFL day with an epic comeback, Coach Gruden resigns from the Raiders after the New York Times has made public the contents of some of his emails written from 2011 to 2018 with a racist and sexist background. Everything happens in the American night: Lamar Jackson even launches for 422 yards, he who usually makes the difference with races, in the 31-25 success on Indianapolis, recovering from -19. The 58-year-old coach from Las Vegas, who signed a 10-year contract worth $ 100 million in 2018, is forced to leave due to an epistolary scandal.


Two notes in Baltimore: first of all, Jackson proves he can win games with his arm, not just with his legs. Forced by the demands of scoring to force the passing game, for once he manages to assert himself. Four goals on air play, against the unfortunate secondary of the Colts. Then the Ravens must have some saint in Heaven: second success in five “miraculous” games after the one on Detroit with the record kick at the end of Tucker’s 66 yards, their phenomenal kicker. And so they take the lead in complicated AFC North, ahead of Cincinnati and Cleveland. The game: Indy lead 10-3 at half-time with the flash of the 76-yard Wentz-Taylor touchdown combination. Then Blankenship, their kicker, misses the 13th additional kick of the fifth NFL day, a negative record. Jackson’s fumble at 1 yard from the opposing end zone allows the guests to stretch to 22-3 with 3 ‘left to play in the 3rd quarter, thanks to Taylor’s try, this time on a run. But then Jackson is unleashed, targeting Andrews, the tight end, and “Hollywood” Brown. The Ravens’ special team continues to amaze: Campbell blocks a kick at Blankenship, and Jackson with 39 ”on the clock finds Andrews twice: first for the try, then for the two-point conversion of 25 all. In the extra Lamar catches Brown in the end zone for the final 31-25 touchdown. For the Ravens a feat, for the Colts yet another wasted opportunity. Teams with records in the mirror: 4-1 Baltimore and 1-4 Indianapolis. With similar values, but the final sprints, with opposite epilogues, made the difference.


With these words: “I love the Raiders and I don’t want to be a distraction. I thank the players, coaches, staff and fans. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt anyone.” Las Vegas franchise owner Mark Davis has accepted his resignation, assistant Rich Bisaccia has been promoted to interim head coach. The Raiders are 3-2 record, returning from two consecutive defeats. The story arises as a reflection of the investigation into the documents received by Bruce Allen, former president of the Washington franchise, then removed for misconduct, not in line with company policy. In the examination of the email he received there were some from Gruden, at the time an analyst for ESPN, the main US sports TV. In his correspondence with Allen, coach Gruden would have vulgarly insulted Commissioner Roger Goodell, some owners and journalists, would have used sexist epithets – misogynistic and anti-gay – and racist.


Returning to field football, here are the players of the week. For the attack Justin Herbert, quarterback of the Los Angeles Chargers, who launched for 398 yards and 4 tries against Cleveland, bending the Browns in the sprint thanks to the 47 points scored. For the right defense reward Darius Slay, defensive back of Philadelphia, able to intercept Sam Darnold twice in the surprise success of the Eagles in Charlotte on Carolina.
