JARED QUAY: I usually associate Thursday Night Football matchups with, well, dog poop. But this week we got a marquee game between AFC West foes the Chargers and Chiefs.

- Oh, my.

JARED QUAY: I know. I wonder if this awesome matchup was because it's the first ever NFL game airing on Amazon Prime ever.

- Welp, there it is.

JARED QUAY: And you know Jeff Bezos ain't gonna want to see no Panthers versus Giants playing on the streaming service for its inaugural game. Sure, we have to sit through millions of ads featuring elves and dwarves. But in the end--

- Worth it.

JARED QUAY: --as for the game itself, the Chargers jumped out to a 10-0 lead and then maintained their advantage until the fourth quarter. But Patrick Mahomes and company were playing at home, which means you can only hope to contain them for so long.

Mahomes might have thrown for 235 yards and two touchdowns. But it was the pick 6 by a rookie taken in the seventh round, Jaylen Watson, that sealed the victory for the Chiefs.


Up 2-0 in the WNBA finals, you know the Las Vegas Aces wanted the W in game 3 to clinch their first-ever title. And the Sun had no plans of rolling over and making this easy. Connecticut ended the first quarter on a 25 to 4 run.



And thanks to the WNBA finals' first-ever triple-double by Alyssa Thomas, the Sun never relinquished their lead to take game 3. This is great for hoop fans because it means game 4, baby. Aces star A'ja Wilson might be disappointed she couldn't wrap up one epic night of hardware, though. Not only would she have walked away a champion with the season MVP, Defensive Player of the Year Award, and likely Finals MVP, she would also have a unanimous all-WNBA first-team selection, too, along with teammate Kelsey Plum.

Damn, your age is really this close to a hoops EGOT. And for those of you who don't know what a EGOT is, it's someone who wins an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony. And A'ja pretty much winning everything under the sun this year. So she probably will win an Emmy and a Tony. I don't know if she gonna get a Oscar, though. They make it really hard. I mean, Will Smith waited, like, 30 years, and he had to slap somebody to get it.
