Browns V Lions | WK11 NFL 2021

A messy win, but amazing run performance on both sides. D'andre Swift legit looked like the future answer at running back for the Lions. Nick Chubb putting up a great solo performance without Kareem Hunt, although expectations are already high for him considering he is considered one of the best backs in the league, and in my opinion with Derrick Henry out he is currently the best. Coaching will continue to look like a issue for the Browns so eventually they'll have to make a change their or at the quarterback position and move on from Baker, which I don't see happening anytime soon, but you never know.

What Was That Wednesday Night? And, What Happens If All Of A Sudden We Lost Our Grid?

Screenshot via Warren’s Real Breaking News! on Meta. Oh, my! What was that Wednesday night? At between 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., everything in my house went black for about 2 seconds before returning to normal. My TVs, my lights in the kitchen, the baby’s room, and even my indoor tropical garden, which I keep lit with about 30 or more energy-efficient grow lights, so my plants don’t die in the winter.

But gentrification swallowed up the market before the vines could.
