The Longest pass

Image
The Longest pass ever recorded in an NFL game   The NFL has seen some great talent, especially in the quarterback position. For example, Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been a promising talent. One of Patrick’s exceptional skills is his throwing ability. The quarterback claims he can throw 75-83 yards. However, the longest pass in the NFL was not from a quarterback but a third quarterback- Cleveland Browns, Baker Mayfield. The action was recorded on Monday night, week 14 of the NFL season.  Mayfield threw a pass that was over 70 yards against the Baltimore Ravens. He hurled the ball a little too much- hoping to score the last touchdown at the end of the half. I hope Mayfield iced his arm after the game because he threw 343 yards and completed three touchdowns in Monday night's showdown. Cleveland Browns rank second in the AFC North table and currently sit at 9-4, behind the 11-2 Pittsburgh Steelers. The Browns will face the struggling New York Giants and a winless New Y

Haunted by injuries: Van Basten Marco Van Basten was born on the 31st of October 1964 in Utrecht. He grew up in the Oog In Al neighbourhood. When he was just six years old, he began playing for a local team from his hometown, EDO. After spending a year with them, he moved to UVV Utrecht. His time at UVV was stretched over nine years. This is where he developed the skills he needed to make it to the big clubs. When Marco just turned 16, he got an offer from Ajax and signed a contract with them for the 1981-82 season. Marco debuted for Ajax on the 3rd of April 1982, when he came on as a substitute for Johan Cruyff and scored a goal bumping up the team’s morale contributing to the 5-0 victory over NEC. The following season seemed to be beneficial for Basten. In the season of 83’, he competed with the European top scorer and first choice Holland international Wim Kieft for the position of centre forward. Marco ended up scoring nine goals in 20 league matches. Consequently, Ajax chose to se
