Carson Wentz went 4-for-4 for 45 yards on the Eagles’ opening drive. But it was more what the Eagles quarterback did with his legs. On fourth-and-one from the Giants 31, Wentz scrambled for 3 yards before sliding. Three plays later, Wentz scored on a 1-yard touchdown run. It was Wentz’s fifth rushing touchdown. Only Kyler […]
Add Seahawks coach Pete Carroll to the team’s injury report. Carroll underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last Tuesday during the Seahawks’ off week, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR and PFT reports. Carroll drove a golf cart around the field to watch his team practice Thursday. If Carroll can’t stand on the sideline Sunday night, defensive […]
With Vita Vea out for the year, the Buccaneers needed help at nose tackle. Enter Steve McLendon, who played for Tampa Bay defensive coordinator Todd Bowles in New York. “They asked me, and yes, I stood on the table for him,” Bowles told reporters on Thursday regarding McLendon. “We need depth down there. Like I […]
Late October is too early for snow in most places, but it’s never too early for an NFL snow game. The excellent Dark Sky app currently shows a Denver kickoff temperature in the high teens, with snow beginning in the morning and seven to 11 inches of accumulation. That could make for the second straight […]
The Giants will have receiver Sterling Shepard against the Eagles tonight. He is active, returning after missing four games with turf toe. The team’s inactives are safety Adrian Colbert (shoulder), receiver C.J. Board (concussion), cornerback Darnay Holmes (neck), tight end Eric Tomlinson, offensive lineman Jackson Barton, defensive lineman RJ McIntosh and defensive end Jabaal Sheard. […]

Baker Mayfield played through a chest injury last week until the game no longer was in doubt. Maybe he shouldn’t have. The Browns quarterback is in better health this week. He is listed on the team’s practice report with a chest injury, but after a limited practice Wednesday, Mayfield returned to a full practice Thursday. […]
The Buccaneers lost to the Bears on Oct. 8 after Tom Brady‘s mental error perhaps cost his team. The quarterback was available to the media last week, but no one asked about his postgame sprint to the locker room after the loss. Someone asked today. Brady didn’t have a good answer for why he blew […]
It ranks as one of the greatest games in NFL history. It also is one of the league’s most controversial. The Raiders held a 13-10 lead with 1:50 remaining in a 2001 divisional postseason game played in a snowstorm in New England. The Patriots had a first-and-10 at the Oakland 42 when Charles Woodson hit […]
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson doesn’t know if he’ll be throwing passes to wide receiver Antonio Brown at any point in the future, but he does know that he’d like to see Brown back in the NFL. Wilson made that clear during a session with reporters on Thursday. Brown’s eight-game suspension is coming to an end […]
Texans interim coach Romeo Crennel made a questionable decision with 1:50 remaining Sunday. Up seven points, he opted to go for two rather than kick the extra point. Crennel has defended the decision, which resulted in an incomplete pass and a loss to the Titans in overtime. Texans offensive coordinator Tim Kelly said it was […]
Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo injured his hip in Week Two. The team used four kickers in his four-game absence. Lambo now is back. The Jaguars activated him from the reserve/injured-designated for return list, the team announced today. He is 3-for-3 on field goals and 6-of-7 on extra points this season. The Jaguars cut kicker Jon […]
When announcing that quarterback Sam Darnold would practice on Wednesday, Jets head coach Adam Gase said that “the biggest thing” would be how his right shoulder feels after the session. It seems that all went well on that front. Darnold was a limited participant in practice again on Thursday and that would seem to leave […]
Passer rating, the NFL’s official statistic for measuring the efficiency of quarterbacks, has enough flaws that it really shouldn’t be taken too seriously. But if you’re going to use it at all, make sure you’re adjusting for inflation. That’s because passer rating has risen and risen and risen through the years and is now at […]
Rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire became the Chiefs’ feature back the day Damien Williams opted out of the 2020 season. He remained in that role until the Chiefs signed veteran Le'Veon Bell last week. Edwards-Helaire will lose snaps and touches to Bell. Bell, though, had a heart-to-heart with Edwards-Helaire before signing with Kansas City. “Le’Veon reached out […]
The Packers may need to do some shuffling on the offensive line for Sunday’s game against the Texans. Left tackle David Bakhtiari left last weekend’s loss to the Buccaneers with a chest injury and he sat out practice for the second straight day on Thursday. If he remains out on Friday, it will likely be […]
Former Vikings linebacker Matt Blair died Thursday, the team announced. He was 70. “A player of unmatched skill on the field, Matt’s generosity and spirit in the community was equally unique,” the Vikings said in a statement. “Always willing to help a teammate or support a worthy cause, Matt’s life was vibrant. He brought joy […]
Cowboys pass rusher Aldon Smith returned to a limited practice Thursday. Smith injured his neck in Monday’s loss to the Cardinals and did not practice Wednesday. “Aldon jammed his neck in the game,” Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said. “He’s going to start in a limited basis today, and we’ll see how it goes. But I […]
The Buccaneers practiced without their two biggest offseason acquisitions on Wednesday, but both players were back on the field Thursday. Quarterback Tom Brady‘s return was not a great surprise. He was not listed with an injury and was taking a rest day to start off the practice week. Tight end Rob Gronkowski was missing because […]
The Titans added receiver A.J. Brown to their Thursday practice report. He did not practice with a knee injury. It is unclear whether the knee issue is related to the bone bruise that kept him sidelined for two games. Brown has played the past two weeks, making 12 catches for 140 yards and three touchdowns […]
