Larry Fitzgerald tested positive for COVID-19 last week, which hurt the game plan in the loss to the Patriots. What else went wrong in New England and is Kyler Murray fully healthy?

Next, P2 and BMac go around the league, with plenty more COVID news to discuss (23:40). The Steelers are upset with the Ravens and how the NFL has handled postponements...Is their frustration justified? And the Broncos were forced into an emergency situation at QB on Sunday, could Pat ever fulfill that role if needed!? The guys also address Bruce Arians calling out Tom Brady, Tyreek Hill's monster performance vs the Bucs and tap into boxing with reaction to Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. and Jake Paul vs. Nate Robinson (46:15). Then, we welcome record-setting rookie, Justin Jefferson, to the show (54:00). How exactly did he go from an unheralded recruit to the best 1st-year receiver in the league?
