IT WASN’T EASY, BUT THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS MAY HAVE SAVED SOME COACHING JOBS LAST NIGHT ON “MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL.” Kansas City struggled to move the ball throughout the evening, averaging just 4.8 yards per play. Even when the Chiefs did get something going, they undermined themselves with drops, penalties, and turnovers. And yet, given a chance at a game-winning drive with around five minutes left, Patrick Mahomes led the team down the field for a field goal to take a three-point lead.

The Giants had a chance at a last-ditch drive, but Chris Jones snuffed it out almost all by himself. He got pressures on Daniel Jones on two of New York’s four snaps on their final drive, forcing a sack and then causing Jones to attempt to scramble and fumble to end the game.

No. 11 Illinois will be without preseason Big Ten Player of the Year Kofi Cockburn for its first three games of the season while the star big man sits because of an NCAA suspension. Cockburn sold “institutionally issued apparel and memorabilia” in June before it was permissible to do so under NIL guidelines, according to a statement from Illinois.

Under the terms of the suspension, Cockburn will repay the amount he gained from the apparel sales through a charitable donation. The Illini open against Jackson State on Nov. 9 and and play Arkansas State on Nov. 12. Illinois should be able to handle those opponents without Cockburn, who averaged 17.7 points and 9.5 rebounds last season. But Illinois’ third game against Marquette on Nov. 15 could be a challenge. After serving the suspension, Cockburn will be eligible to make his season debut in the Illini’s game vs. Cincinnati on Nov. 22 in the Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City.
