Kris Dunn, Chicago Bulls (Rostered in 39.6 percent of ESPN leagues): There was some talk of Dunn as a deep sleeper in the offseason, if only for the opportunity to play plenty of minutes for the Bulls. It took some time to earn lots of minutes, but Dunn has averaged 31.8 MPG during his past seven games (all starts), and the results have been impressive. The sample is small, but it’s nice to see Dunn sinking more than half of his 3-point attempts and with a slick overall line that includes 17 PPG, 7.6 APG, 5.3 RPG and 2.1 SPG over this recent surge.
Roethlisberger hits Antonio Brown down the sideline for a 34-yard gain and Pittsburgh moves into field goal range. Brown has 213 receiving yards in the game.
Touchdown Ravens. Baltimore advances to the Steelers 25 on a pass interference penalty. Then, after two runs by Collins and a short pass from Flacco, Javorius Allen punches it in from 9 yards out to give the Ravens a 38-29 lead with 6:44 to play.
And remember, when the Giants took the bad delay-of-game penalty at a crucial point in a September loss to the Lions, McAdoo threw Manning under the bus and blamed it on “sloppy quarterback play.”
It was always someone else’s fault. More often than it ever should have been, the head coach was the one assigning some level of blame.
Field goal Steelers. Chris Boswell enters and kicks a 52-yard field goal to increase Pittsburgh’s lead to 17-7 with 4:14 to play in the half.
Ben Roethlisberger completes another long pass to Antonio Brown. This one goes for 43 yards as Pittsburgh moves to the Baltimore 28.
