Twitter has so many thoughts after Lamar Jackson holds up hands while rushing for first down

Twitter has so many thoughts after Lamar Jackson holds up hands while rushing for first down

Facing third and fourth downs nearing the red zone at Arrowhead at six minutes left in the first quarter, Lamar Jackson scrambled twice to advance the men in purple, eventually setting up Mark Ingram's shotgun rush up the middle to put Baltimore on the board. However, Jackson's scramble has enraptured Twitter, and the people need some answers.

A particular television angle on the CBS broadcast showed TE Mark Andrews throwing his hands up to show Jackson that he's open to catch, with Jackson copying his moves shortly after. 

Before this mirror image, Jackson and Andrews had one complete pass for five yards to the KC 16 yard line, followed by an incomplete catch.

Local pizza chain continues to troll Bryce Harper with deal

Local pizza chain continues to troll Bryce Harper with deal

Are you a Nationals fan, a pizza lover, and still a tad bitter that Bryce Harper left the nation's capital for a mega-contract with the Phillies?

Well, you're in luck.

Philadelphia heads to Washington for a rare five-game series (Tuesday's doubleheader is a makeup game) on Monday, and barring a miracle, the final time the Phillies will face the Nationals in 2019. 

&Pizza, a Washington, D.C.-headquartered build-your-own pizza spot, is offering a promotion for every time Harper strikes out against his former team.

After every strikeout, fans will have exactly three minutes to text '#UROUT' to #200-03 in order to receive a promotional code. In return, each customer will be sent a code that will allow them to purchase a $3 pizza through online ordering or the mobile app. The full terms of the sweepstakes can be found here.

In his first season with the Phillies, Harper has had mixed results against his former club. In 48 at-bats, the 26-year-old has 12 hits (.250 average), two home runs and eight RBIs. 

But as far as team success, the Nationals have had the last laugh in the first year in the post-Harper era. Entering Sunday, with nine games remaining, the Nationals currently hold the top slot in the NL wild card race.

Things have not gone as well for the Phillies, who entered Sunday five games back of the second wild card spot with just nine games to go.
