Cathro of NFL faces plot twist; Sunday Morning Quarterback.
Byline: | Brendan McGinty
What a thrilling start to the 2017 NFL season - and who could have predicted the breakout star would be Ian Cathro? Not the actual Ian Cathro obviously. Rather, his American equivalent Sean McVay (below) who at 31 is the youngest coach in a league he never featured in as a player.
McVay's masterminding of a 46-9 rout over the revered Indianapolis Colts sounds like the sort of thing that could only happen in Hollywood.

How much weight to place on this festival of football by the apparently resurgent Rams? Or indeed on Tom Brady's unceremonious Thursday night dethroning at the hands of the Chiefs? And what about Carson Wentz veering between Joe Montana and Joe Pasquale as his Philadelphia Eagles edged out the Washington Redskins?

And whisper it but Kansas City's 42-27 win may have been the result of a badly misfiring New England secondary and the increasing suspicion age may finally be catching up with Brady.
At 21/10 you can take Philly in a single.
For our double we will keep faith with the Redskins - who passed the eye test in defeat - to go to LA and show McVay it ain't going to be that easy every week.
We'll team them with the Baltimore Ravens who entertain the Cleveland Browns.
No betting columnist should ever describe any prospect as an absolute certainty. The Ravens are an absolute certainty.
The double, just like last week's more than comfortable winning opener, pays just under 2/1.
