    Fournette 181 yards and 2 TDs, including a 91 yard run and a leap over the line of scrimmage from the 5 yard line on the other.

    In contrast, OBJ breaks his ankle in a loss to the Chargers, done for the year. He was in tears while being carted off the field. I can only imagine all the work put in to try and be the best at your craft, only to be derailed by something completely out of your control. Sucks..

    Both on my fantasy team. Tough loss for OBJ. As a Texans fan Fournette has become bitter sweet.

    Yeh, I didn't get that either. Then again, I'm old compared to him, so there's that. Still, I hate it for him that he's out for the year. You can tell by his raw emotions as he's being carted off that he knows his season is over.

    I saw the video of OBJ's injury, watching his ankle/fibia break was just gross.

    ESPN noted today that Beckham makes more money from Nike than from his Giants contract.

    That's OK, the Saints didn't need either of those guys or Jarvis.
