Chicago / New Orleans (Louisiana) / Kansas City (Missouri) (APA) – The Chicago Bears lost 13:19 to division rivals Minnesota Vikings in the National Football League (NFL) on Monday evening (local time). In addition, the hosts lost their quarterback Nick Foles in the final minute, who had to be carried off the field with a leg injury. A detailed investigation on Tuesday should shed light on the severity of the injury to the 31-year-old Super Bowl winner of 2018 (with the Philadelphia Eagles).
The match winner for the guests from Minneapolis was quarterback Kirk Cousins, who provided a total of 292 yards of space and two touchdowns – both captured by Adam Thielen – with his passes.
According to an ESPN report, New Orleans will have to do without their superstar Drew Brees for several weeks. The 41-year-old quarterback suffered several broken ribs in the 27:13 home win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, which also collapsed a lung.
Kansas City Chiefs Extended Contracts
There was better news from the current NFL champion: The Kansas City Chiefs extended the contracts of head coach Andy Reid and general manager Brett Veach. Reid is currently in his eighth season as the Chiefs head coach and led the team to their first title win in 50 years in February. With 230 wins in the NFL, he has as many successes as only four coaches besides him. Veach has been the managing director of the Missouri team since 2017 and shares responsibility for the strong squad around superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
And the Baltimore Ravens announced on Monday that for the time being, fans are no longer allowed to attend their home games. Even family members of team members are affected by this viewer exclusion after more than 1,000 new corona infections have been reported in the US state of Maryland in the past six days. Only in one single home game of the Ravens this season was audience allowed in the 71,000 arena. In the 24:28 defeat against the Pittsburgh Steelers on November 1, there were exactly 4,345 fans in the stadium.
