Following the Lamar Jackson-led Baltimore Ravens' victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday, Professor Kenneth Shropshire, CEO of the Global Sport Institute at Arizona State University, takes stock of the state of the black quarterback in the NFL — and asks how we can get to a point where we don't talk about race when it comes to the quarterback position.

Also, The Athletic reported that the Los Angeles Chargers "would at least listen if the NFL approached them about [moving to] London." Chargers owner Dean Spanos quickly denied the validity of the rumor. Only A Game's Karen Given thinks having two franchises in LA has been a failed experiment and wonders if the Chargers should look for a new home in London.

And an NJ Advance Media report alleges abuse by the Rutgers softball coaches, including the use of wind sprints as punishment for going $6 over the team's food travel budget. The Wall Street Journal's Rachel Bachman looks at one group's call for the end of exercise as punishment in college athletics.
